    Blooming white stuff, grumble, grumble...

    Went to B00ts, to use those offers before they expire.

    Got O/B bodyspray, O/B toothpaste, O/B handwash, and Aspirin.

    Spent 2.55 from giftcard, got 2.75 back in points.

    75pts female deodorant/75pts dental/75pts for buying 2 toiletries plus Aspirin was only 30p and qualified as healthcare, so 50pts there.

    I like freebies.

    Edit.
    You'll have to do your homework on this one as it was v T and I think it was reported that T prices changed!

    Would like rose though so please report back if you try it!

    Is the rose in the 342 juju?
    Remember that you would get the 2 cheapest free if they are, so better sticking to the same prices.

    Thanks curl girl....I will check this afternoon, and if it is in the 3 for 2, I will test it and report back. Yes I know I will lose a bit, as the prices are slightly different, but I know a few people who prefer a rose, so worth a short. Thanks

    I have a golden number, it is one I do not want to lose. I have my suspicions that numbers like mine might accidentally disappear in the process of switching providers, especially twice in a row. I suppose if I had to I could pop the Vodafone sim in, send a text to it, then pop my TalkMobile sim in once a day, but surely this could damage the sim?

    Using a sim for 30 days, you would only need it in the phone the first and the last day. You could also port your number to a PAYG sim if ever you needed to keep it safe when changing about.

    Thank you, shall probably end up with the Vodafone sim 'in' it for that time.
    Wanted to get it done quicker though.

    I am paranoid about losing my number, was in carphone warehouse one time buying a new phone, asked about porting my number, gave it when asked and his face momentarily lit up and he then said he wasnt sure i would be able to keep that number Walked straight out without buying the phone, suspect he had recognised the value of the number. No-one is getting their grubby little mitts on my number

    Such good information savvy
    Originally posted by TrulyMadly
    Yes the Savvy Industries price collection service has been in full swing so far this week. Just needs to get up-to-date with what was found yesterday. The APG is probably still on the current Monday information though, which is fully on the list (insofar as they match what is on there). Shame the Villa Maria is picking up 7 from what must be Monday - too many of their stores that had not changed their SELs by the time the collectors visited maybe early in the day. I sometimes have that issue with my own main first store - I used to leave starting until the afternoon to give my store chance to change its SELs on the day (although many are probably already showing new prices at the start of the day) - for technical reasons I usually have to start in the morning nowadays and they are still changing SELs whilst I am going around. They usually aren't putting low enough prices on for me - I must be seeing some incorrect information early on and try to have a look back at an aisle after staff changing SELs have been there or just hope that the changes/differences get picked up in the other stores later in the day.

    The Villa Maria had been changed in my starting store early on Monday and was the very first section of the store I went to. Too many of the price collection stores seem not to have been as quick though - hopefully they have acted on the price change within two days and have not missed it and then leaving it unchanged for months - I have one set of items still showing an offer in one of my stores that I think expired in January that I ignore every time until somewhere else indicates a price change - and I have had stores before that have never shown an offer whilst it was on - I even had one that once had changed to the offer price on the day the offer had now finished and then to full price within a few days after - it showed full price during the entire offer period and only finally caught up showing an offer when the product was back at full price, just going round chasing after themselves. Hopefully at least half of the collection stores have changed by yesterday to see the Villa Maria getting 6 from the Wednesday information.

    The crisps and snacks prices need not confuse you - just don't bother with m.com (and therefore msm) and the comprehensive (I hope!) list of items that should work is on the M list. You can't go wrong if you stick to that can you? Obviously you are only allowed one set of 3 for 3 in any one shop so certainly can't buy two of everything, together with half as many purchases of the trigger, all in one shop. (I would have thought that went as read and is common knowledge on this thread about these things, so it's not specified on the list but is obvious.)
