    Just catching up. Sorry you didn't have enough items SnS, that's so frustrating.

    Been thinking is it worth keeping a list of what isn't showing on the APGs at the moment. I scraped through last night with one of my wine shops. Forgot the small cadbury chocolate buttons don't show

    Afternoon all, more rain

    Having a long discussion with COS. They rejected my Boots receipt as not having any qualifying items - they could not translate the Boots abbreviation for the Nivea essentails moisturiser.
    So I emailed them a reply with the receipt ID code and my details including my email address, pointing out exactly where it is on the receipt and translating for them.
    They then rejected my email as they said it had to be from my own email account and they couldnt locate it. THe email system puts it as a gmail address rather than Googlemail. BUt if they bothered to look further down the email they would see the original rejected email they sent me with the googlemail address.
    I've sent them another email with screenshots of my activity page and my account details page to prove that I am me plus my current balance and more receipt pictures.
    I think the only way around this will be to change my email address on my app contact page.

    deep sigh ... the simplest things are so difficult.

    Would post a picture of mine but not done yet and have never tried posting pictures.

    Man filling shelf with chickens today said the offer finishes tomorrow and had put a sign up saying 2 per customer, as were running out.

    Got some fizz today, which is now locked in the boot and can't get it out as lock won't open.
    I am going to have to take it in to the garage with a boot full of Asti (for Mum) and Prosecco
    Should be an interesting reaction when they get it open

    Todays shop v Morribobs - ta to the testers and OPs

    So 3 bottles is enough now to keep vouchers smaller

    I included the Jacobs which are on a 2 for 1 offer as COS give you 70p so in real money only 10p

    The sponge mix is for the food bank - i am thinking of bagging it up with birthday candles I have and if I can find cake ribbon as well even better.

    One item does not appear - tiger tails for 45p - half a baguette so if you are counting items this one does not count.

    Lost a bit on the rice and chicken breasts but I would rather include fillers I actually need plus its better than an over large voucher

    (Yes I know it would save vast amounts but I am not very good at handling meat, usually get OH to cube chicken breasts up for me)

    Not sure if you mean does the chicken compare in a A vs M shop.
    If so ithis compared yesterday A vs M

    So the worst case scenario - my VM goes off on Thursday and I start with BT . I also lose my ntlworld email that I have had for over 20(?) years . I believe I have 14 days to cancel BT after install - would there be any charges? I need to find out!

    I am now looking at TT and others wondering if I am leaving whether I could go for one of the other deals . Or order VM in Mrs Anons name ...

    Little Anons will make my life hell if the internet and kids channels go off ... loss of internet would breach their human rights according to comments indoors earlier .
