    I've got a rather large voucher now to use - wish I'd done 2 shops with just 3 bottles in each now ...
    All of my fillers were good - some NA but the others all gave me a few extra pence. I tend to get fillers I need or ones that can go into food bank collections rather than 10p sweeties.
    Ta for the OP this morning who was also going to have a try, you gave me the courage - I have now got my gorgeous NZ wine that I really wanted (which none of my Twine boxes that I returned on Friday had)

    It think it has. I did a double-take in my first store when I saw 6 price, and then kept the product noted down for a second store just to make sure that that was what I was getting. I note Google cache appears to have 7.00 for M but the current page on m.com for the product now says 6. If this was a 7 offer that has now ended, it seems it was best to let the offer expire: the product is now showing 6. It may be best to wait for the Monday collection to be updated on the APG (and then hope the product hasn't dropped off the M comp. altogether).

    It may yet appear on the next collection (the one done today) but this makes it seem unlikely.
    Shogun 777: the Martini Asti did compare correctly against M several months ago when M was 6.50 but is it now not appearing at all for M or with an incorrect price for M? TIA.

    It does, as of last Wednesday's collection which we are still on. Unfortunately the shop didn't did get the comp. vs M, with the result that the Kitchen Roll was obtained for full A price, because the Martini Asti doesn't work against M on the current price data.

    Picked up some WB earlier, thanks OP.

    Thanks to the OP who compiled the list, it was very helpful in Mr A's.

    Metcalfe's charity sea salt, and salted caramel compared 1.48 v 1.00 so with cashback from COS work out at 40p.

    Elmlea Double Cream Substitute 1.07 v 1.10 with 55p cashback, cheap enough.

    Amstel Bier Lager (4x440ml) 4.00 v 3.97 with 1 cashback.

    Used up my last apg's, from the gift set glitch before xmas, to buy a new printer, ream of paper and a black ink cartridge.

    I think this is probably the perfect gift set for the elite
