    4 chickens safe and sound in fridge. Torres shop done with a bit of a faff. All APGS scanned but one needed supervisor override due to being over 20 girl on SS not supervisor so she called a lady over who decided she wanted to scan them herself as her number was being used, came up, as expected, coupon already used she Ghana got a bit stroppy telling me I shouldn't scan my own coupons, put her right in that one ,politely.
    The till then froze, stood waiting five minutes and then off to CS as the till would not budge. Had to rescan everything, by this time she was in a right pickle and scanned seven bottles of wine
    Started again and cane to minus 17p as she had missed a few item off.
    Finally got it all done and bill came to 52p so she said you can have it for 2p fir all the messing about, I was tempted to say no and ask her to rescan everything again but it had been over 45 mins by this time.
    Just spchecked receipt and she has double s scanned one of my burgers but not going back

    A good womble that turns up dated around a week ago - it gives over 5. I thought it would be good if the 4 fish were cheaper somewhere else (I was hoping for 2):

    1x Strepsils Sore Throat & Cough Lozenges (24pk) 4.50 3.50
    1x Young's 2 Gastro Marinades Sweet Chilli Basa Fillets (260g) 4.00 2.76

    Comparisons obviously still no good for us.
    You may have thought that, with those, the competitor would have been cheaper. However, all the items do is mitigate the other items that were somewhat more expensive at the competitor and A ends up cheaper. By two pence. Should have been so much better. As it is, the Strepsils have still been obtained for more cost than if the shopper had just bought them in Sainsbury's:
    1x Strepsils Sore Throat & Cough Lozenges (24pk) 4.50 3.00

    As usual, it's vs M that gives the voucher - I'm finding, if there is a voucher, it is almost always against M recently (only had about three occasions on which a voucher was against either T or S and none coming vs W). Though I did have one yesterday that was more than 10% cheaper, despite them buying the Chicken. So, it was hopeless - the chicken was obtained for 5 instead of the comparison being relevant.

    Lango - sorry you had that experience in Asda, it's a pain when that happens.

    Hope it wasn't my local, because just about to try and recycle one for over 20, after I try to get into boot from inside to retrieve the original fizz as boot won't open.

    The pink Barefoot Pinot was definitely being promoted as being 3 for 2 toady

    There was a lot of Villa Maria white pinot mixed in with the Cab Sav, but no SEL relating to them, Thought I'd give it a try and bought 3 of each. The SA has however put them through as 6 Cab Sav, the bottles look very similar and I should get the APG for Cab sav, butI was interested in the results for the Pinot.
