    I don't think many of us is partaking in wine glitch as Scottish supermarkets do not have 3f2 on alcohol

    It should have clicked that, every time there is an mbuy on alcohol, it is not available in Scotland. I do think these things automatically most of the time but, perhaps fortunately for my human side, I am not as automatic as their computers. I bought 15 10p sweets - yes they really do need that many! - hoping to compare against T's 5 for... offer recently, except that 12 of them were Maoam Stripes - something strange happened when I checked the receipt - I even managed to make a flump pick up T at 11p and the T mbuy did not fully appear - of course I clean forgot that only maximum of 10 the same item appear. Normally, I automatically think "maximum 10 the same" but, on this occasion, in my eagerness to grab 15 sweets, I forgot! So, "even I" make mistakes. Fortunately they are low value items so it wasn't drastic losing the full comparison.

    This compares in a A vs M shop too . So good for a filler and cb

    Obviously one I have not got but I will need to make a note to add to the list.

    EDIT: Looks like it may have been the final day. I was going to say it might appear on the list if I ever get there before the offer ends! I will look into it and, if the CB offer is not there anymore, I won't bother with it but if it is still on it will get to the list (if I get to putting it on there before the offer ends).

    Evening,

    I was just wondering if anyone knew the comparison for pork shoulder on APG please? Need to buy one and tempted to bung it in with wine but scared it might wipe out my APG!! Thank you
    Originally posted by sparklyfee
    Aww, might have been okay. They were picking up 2.50/Kg price for M when one of my wombles turned up good a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately the stock I am seeing in M on Wednesday 7th is full price so that will probably be picked up very soon. (I can't guarantee they were 2.50/Kg in M on Monday - I didn't note the item down and I can't remember what price it was as it is not a price I am tracking. Probably was 2.50/Kg if I have only noticed it going to 3.77/Kg now or whatever it now is.)

    It was working, but stopped working yesterday.
    Must have been skipping, naughty naughty!
    Originally posted by davemorton
    Thanks for this - I will make a note about this too. So, Wolf Blass Shiraz not working but Martini Asti and Freixenet now working. As of Monday's price collection. Could be all change again, we never know. I did have an OOS situation in my main M on one of the Wolf Blass wines yesterday but SELs still there so thought they might not be affected (in any event, the price collectors almost certainly seeing what is or isn't in different stores to me). As I had a SEL, albeit no stock, and the price across both (one of them was in stock for me) was clearly no change 2 for 10, and there was never any suggestion that that could be wrong, I didn't bother looking in another store for stock. However this could be a reason why - gone OOS by Monday in price collection places even if M doubtless still has it somewhere - the boogers buying the wine in M.

    Or - gone OOS over the weekend in a collection store and SEL taken away entirely so it was not there on Monday. Could then be no "up to 7 days" as they now have no trace from that store? And, it seems, no trace anywhere else (any of their other collection stores) on Monday - items can just vanish entirely from stores. (Not even a SEL, so they can take a price - and for up to 7 days if there is no stock there.) They can also come back sometimes, almost as quickly as they vanished - and can initially be at full price SELs. Or sometimes the stock-outs are not - the store could have moved all the stock to a promotional end or some place in the store but left a SEL with empty shelf on the main aisle - so the price collector thinks they have no stock. I sometimes move stock found elsewhere back to the main shelf with the price label on it (and take the OOS label that covers it and drop it down the back of the shelf), just in case. I bet what happens though is that people then buy the items I've moved and the shelf is then empty again - with the stock still elsewhere in the store.

    Morning all - it went very cold yesterday afternoon bu no snow - it seems to be along the west coast so far, Liverpool direction had a blizzard this morning.

    There is a possibility that I might be in the direction of Sada this morning. I've looked at the lists and the Villa price seems to be as it was on Sunday?
    So still a S versus M shop?
    Dithering because I've only seen one persons list with it on.

    What happens if I can only get 2 or 4? Can I top it up with other Morrisons capatables .... ???

    Possibly Brancott???

    Just a note to say *not* to try these vs M as the instore price is 1.65 not 1. There are a few differences between online and instore prices on crisps more generally, just to try to confuse you.

    Did not realise people still had snow. Ours is long gone thank goodness.
    I think DH must have the flu thing. He is meant to be at an extremely important meeting this morning but cannot get out of bed, hot, cold, achey etc
