    hmmm, very disappointed with Waitrose PYO now as they seem to be removing so many things from the offer.

    Just today I've been informed that the Waitrose British Chicken Small 1.3kg (the ones on 3 for £10) and essential Waitrose 3-5 British chicken breast fillets 500g will no longer be part of this offer. All the Indian meals got taken off a while back as well.

    Good Afternoon from the 1st class coach on a virgin pendolino train from Edinburgh to Crewe, get me . Not very mse but very nice none the less. I could get used to this Nellie lol.

    My first time in first class and hopefully not the last if the price is right. I had a ticket for a normal coach but realised I wouldn t get back to Wrexham till almost 10 which makes it an extra long day travelling so I looked for alternatives and saw this with £76 off

    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!

    They probably at least check your account to see if you have a qualifying spend or not. They might ask for proof you were invited to this offer

    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 did get 500 points goodwill gesture in the interim tho..

    True - if only we noticed this offer when the glitch was on earlier this week.

    Been choosing tiles and sanitary ware for the bathrooms this week. Gawd the price of tiles differs drastically, even thinking of driving up to Stoke to look at them
