    I know I read somewhere about Birdseye Cod fish fingers in Waitrose being 3 for 2 & on PYO, think it was this thread, i also received a personalised mywaitrose voucher for frozen fish so I now have 9 Boxes of fish fingers Thanks whoever it was!!
    I have been busy buying Waitrose cashmere 9s toilet roll which is 3.50 and on PYO so good price.
    I also bought a sunday times print subscription a while ago and thus get my paper free when spending 10 or more in waitrose with mywaitrose loyalty card plus gain the difference between retail price & subscription price when I use my subscription voucher. This was mentioned on another thread, i think the current sunday times print offer is 20 for 13 weeks (3 months minimum subscription) retail price is 2.70 so 1.17 off shopping!!!128512;
    Thanks to all who post

    Can't you buy online and just get it delivered?

    Morning peeps.

    Looking at their website they say their eGiftcadds can be spent online or instore - as you have the number and pin, can they just type it in the till instore? Those on Z33k must have been an eGift or hard card at some point as they only sell those two types?

    I bought through z33k as it seems to be the only discount around at the moment - Q plus reduced face value plus discount code.

    Many thanks

Also check the t and cs as you can be committing for a lengthy renewal. A scam really, there is no need for lengthy cancellation periods for a newspaper . I know, my own fault ... .

    Afternoon all, we had on and off sleet this morning and now bright sunshine - the cats are not risking it though, all inside snoozing.

    Nipped up to Sainsburys to do a return and to put the last points voucher on - most of my Sainsburys spends last weekend were petrol ones so the only extra spend was the last one on Sunday afternoon - have to figure out in a minite how many extra points

    I had a look at the Tu section for things that might be in the next sale- very cute yellow jumper with a wavy edge and a long green cardigan but both can wait until the sale ...

    In the RTC section I found a box of several rolls of foil wrapping paper 4 metre, originally from the Home section, black with gold stags - very sophisticated looking so I got them price checked - 35p!
    We have a metal stags head eldest child got OH last Christmas so the design is quite pertinent!
    SO the great wrapping paper drought of 2018 is over

    Also Sainsburys are RTC several own label cooking sauces - none of the 20p blackbean ones left but I got a few lime and coconut and lemon ones for 57p - something different to try anyway.

    Ruddy password I tried what I thought I had changed mine to as I remembered stating that nobody would ever guess it. I never sign out but the password is very much in my mind. It wouldnt accept it

    Top it off with it didnt recognise my email address yet I changed it almost a year ago when fsmail was getting closed down

    So I change email addy to what it should be, mse send a link, I fill in that stupid form again using what I thought password was use same and new password minus one digit. Hey presto Im in

    Now why the hail did they refuse old pass word to begin with

    Whoopsies today -from a plus a couple from the coop.
    [/IMG]

    Hope I've done the picture thing correctly!!
    They seem to keep changing the times at my A, probably to keep us on our toes!
    There were some very worrying people at the veg section, but I snuck in a couple of times!
    Also remembered to separate my whoopsies from my other shop!

    Obviously didn't manage the picture!![IMG][/IMG]
    Trying again! bit blurry, but you get the gist!

    Sorry TM, have put the stuff away and didn't take a picture but was in a when she was doing reductions (5 minutes before they closed) and there wasn't a lot of people there. I had only gone for coffee and anti smoking losenges for my DS!

    Apart from the cucumbers which were 5p each, all the rest were 10p each.
    3 x cucumbers
    3 x bunches of asparagus
    2 x packs of kiwis
    1 x pomegranite seeds
    2 x packs of grapes
    1 x pack of apricots
    1 x whole peeled pineapple
    1 x pack of hot chillies
    1 x pack of strawberries with a chocolate dip (won't eat the dip, bubbs)
    1 x pack of cauliflower and broccoli

    Pack of 3 steaks 1.50

    Well pleased.
