    Thanks Bubbs for the fairy.....managed to get a few for friends and family using up the £6 off £30 coupons
    Originally posted by juju17
    For the first time ever (for me) the SA said I couldn't use the £6 coupon cos I hadn't spent enough ! I had to educate him. I don't know whats happening but I've had trouble with supervisory staff (who should be well aware of their own procedures )in Waities, Asda and Tesco in the last week. This morning a supercilious SA told me that the reason the Dr O pizza coupons wouldn't work was because we were only allowed to have 1 coupon per person. She was quite unpleasant and pretty much said I was working a fraud - but she was too late cose the check out lady had already entered them manually and taken my money. Silly Biscuit.

    Does anyone remember the free soup email a few if us had in March and if so did anyone apply and if so did anyone get their money back?

    I've just found the receipt in the scanner I know OH scanned it and put it as a shortcut on the desktop for ease of use. I don't think I submitted the form though

    well it was 2 weeks before the wedding and things were getting manic .... annoying though all of the same

    Doing the TimeS LEGOLAND offer this weekend with a couple of pre-teens,


    any tips please?


    what to do and what to avoid? TIA

    Top tip? Enjoy, it is great ! I particularly like the Star Wars features.

    We have been for the past 4(?) years and are going again this summer (and the next!) as I have my T CC vouchers ready (go mid summer holidays in the first year, then in the first week or so of the summer holidays the following year - one year pass covers two summers . The T CC vouchers were £25 for an annual pass.

    Getting there? If by car, when you get to Windsor, follow the alternative/scenic route - it is slightly further in distance terms but much quicker than the straight route due to less traffic (it is signposted). Get there before opening time so that you are through the gates and in the holding area ready for park/rides opening.

    It is worth planning your day if there are specific rides that you want to go on as if it is really busy then you can be waiting a looooonnnnngggg time for rides, so head to the ones you want quickly when the park opens and then go on the others. Despite how big it looks, once you get your bearings you can get round the site very quickly.

    They offer refillable cups for around £7.50 - worth buying 1 of these (or 2 if you are feeling generous!) as they then last all day with multiple free refills (if your gang are prepared to share, then one cup will be fine for the family as you can refill all day - or all season if you return later in the year .

    They offer kids eat free with an adult in some restaurants from around 3pm if I recall correctly (may be annual pass only though, so may not be of use to you - worth checking). The pizza restaurant is good value anyway as it is unlimited pizza and pasta (for kids and adults with big appetites - it also includes unlimited drinks). The burger restaurant near the log flume (if kids eating free with a paying adult) is also good value.

    Make sure you take in a big packed lunches including snacks etc as prices are not cheap (and you build up a good appetite when walking around all day). If hot, make sure you have sunscreen and hats etc (and if thinking about going in the Duplo Valley - if the water features are open - or on the log flume/canyon ride be prepared to get wet, so take waterproofs/pack-a-macs from the pound shop etc as again ridiculously priced on site!)

    Finally, in terms of buying Lego, they had a reduced/offers section above the Star Wars shop which has always been worth a visit (otherwise the prices are generally RRP and can be bought cheaper from Amazon and elsewhere - so have the conversation beforehand about if there is a specific set they want, to check the price there then buy online if cheaper!).

    Staying over? We have found Slough Travelodge or Terminal 5 at Heathrow are the best value every year so far and close enough for the commute in..

    eta: just noticed on that thread that some people got their points 2 weeks ago, others are still waiting

    Cheeky I know, but I do wonder if FB CS check with anyone before applying the points or if they are just goodwill ... if they did, they would have rejected the V1king queries as V1king had rejected them due to their T&Cs, which suggests they don't check? That being the case, wonders out loud if it would be worth contacting them for missing points from this promo or is that crossing a line ...

    Just thinking out loud.....the w4lkers offer....I recall when they did the £3 lunch promotion, people buying the boxes of walkers from HB? or somewhere similar....wonder if this might be worthwhile with this promo, and if the boxes are on offer?

    Click the link here to download your Multipack coupon and redeem in store. Each Multipack comes with 6 more chances to win a cash prize or another Multipack.

    I was under the impression that there was one cash prize in each multi pack but perhaps there's the possibility of a cash prize in each packet of crisps

    Personally, I was hoping that virgin were just slow in applying the points and that if i got livechat to add them i might get lucky when the delayed automatic points finally go on too. But looking on hukd it seems the automatic points have gone on already for some people

    I love the way we shop

    We normally have fish on a Thursday but our man didn't call today...he's out of synch with Good Friday I think

    Then I remembered the COS offer for Birds Eye Large (that's a joke)
    and bought a £3 pack in A paid for with a £2.86 womble and just claimed my £1 cashback

    Think I'll enjoy tea all the more

    The single bags might contain a cash prize sachet inside but that's all

    2. Head for the ride you want to do that is furthest from the entrance. Don't get distracted as others will do. There should be very little queuing as others would have been delayed on other rides en route.

    In the multipacks, if you have won the individual pack is gold coloured. In the individual packs you can buy the prize is in an envelope inside the bag and the bag is just normal coloured. Not that I have won like!
