    Have we remembered free fish? Credit goes to the OP.

    You can leave the phone number blank and invent an email address and postcode.

    Don't do what I did and put the product for name and an x for post code when printing coupons for family members - looks like they have the same
    unique code, even though different.

    Can't believe those little tins are 1.40 in Tesco

    Just been up to Sainsbobs to get Stork baking cup cakes for COS - they were very sneaky adding it to the list so late in the morning.

    I also got Dreamies cat treats for 1 as I had a till spit for 100 points so they were free. Its the wrong size for GJ but I thought I would try uploading the receipt anyway. It was rejected almost straight away ... oh well I tried.

    Also I wombled on the last vivist a till spit for 140 points for Muller velvet which is still on offer for 1 so technically free and a profit.

    And on one of todays wombles was raspberries - 50p cashback on GJ so that makes up for rejecting the dreamies

    We are having a lazy pizza evening - one of those kna**erring days - bed changing and trying to get the garden in some sort of order as Errant son has turned it into a lumber yard. As an experiment I got for him a large basic cheese and tomato pizza as a base for 1.60 and then he can pile pepperoni, ham and slithers of peppers on top and turn it into something fabulous.

    I also got a till spit from the petrol station for 5000 extra points when you spend 50 in store today and despite the young man on the till trying to input this numerous times/ways for my purchase of gift cards the till would not accept it. Shame

    Thanks everyone just waiting for my medication and then im off home. Oh has done a run to the car with the wine. It's was a bit awkward as I changed onto a ward whilstbi was in theatre so they moved my wine into the office but apparently the staff thought it was for them. It's the biggest ward you've seen in your life and you can't give to some and not others.
    So hopefully not long now you've all kept me going thank you x

    My SiL brought me wine in as she couldn't think of anything else I would want/need she is a bit 'posh' though, I had asked for an extra nightie, said one of those Sada T-shirt type ones, she brought in a really grannyfied nightie , from sada, but in a 'House of Fraser' posh carrier!! DH also asked her to bring me in something to eat (soft diet at the time) well she brought in Brie, cranberry and bacon sandwich in a crusty seeded bun!!

    I had an Iceland order in for delivery today to get the HSBC visa offer of 10 back when you spend 30. I actually put in an order for just over 35 to get TCB 12% (I think). Well, when it was delivered they had missed off toilet rolls and brought the total down to 29.74. So no HSBC VISA cashback.

    I had a similar thing happen with the Boden 20 cashback. Boden sent my order as two separate deliveries and two charges to my Visa card so no cashback as spend amount not met in one order. I had to spend weeks emailing them and eventually got paid the cashback.

    Just wondering whether other people were having these types of issues. are they trying to avoid paying the cashback ?

    Check your nectar accounts online - quite a few offers are expiring in the next day or 2 but also some new ones appearing.

    I've got on both of our cards spend 20 in Tu and get 100 bonus points - although it does not state what the valid clothing is.
    Load to your card to activate it and then remember to chase it up in a months time

    2.Purchase valid Tu Clothing products in-store or online between 06 - 14 March 2018

    Some people have also had spend 20 get 2 back till spits

    Possibly more exciting offers will go live this week ...

    e.g. "yes I know they look the same , but if you study the qr codes carefully, you will see they are all different" Would send them into meltdown.

    Just to clarify, would be putting them through in different transactions at the same time, in-case anyone is worried about the terms and conditions.

    I have nt done any wine shops yet, just enjoy doing the list. I am very sad!

    Sorry, back to the wine. Do we buy 3 of each bottles please? I saw that some people were buying 6. Was that for a reason? I'm thinking that keeping the APG down might be a good plan.

    Elaine, is it a terrible cheek to suggest that, if you have time, you add to your wonderful list what the APG would end up being please? Ignore that request please if it is too much to ask.
    Originally posted by Picasso7
    I have it on excel spread sheet anyway. Will I just add APG for buying in 3 of the same? Remember the Morries need to be in multiples of 2, so will need to buy in 6's.
