    Asti worked for me today

    Not sure if this is any use to anyone, on 10 ways there's a code for 10 off 60 spend on asda.

    Does work alongside any apg vouchers you may have, just done it for some carling for dh, he's had money off what he normally pays, I've used my apg that were coming out of date and the apg accumulated will go back into my account.

    I was daydreaming today, thinking about the carp 'moral dilemmas' post on the different boards sometimes, and came up with my own. I wondered....
    You know how you sometimes see people wantering around supermarkets doing their shopping while eating a pasty, or drinking a can of pop, then putting the empty bag/can on the belt and paying for the item.
    Well... what if a seventeen year old was doing some shopping and drinking some of those cans of gin and mixer or something like it, what could they do? They could not accuse them of stealing, as they had every intention of paying, but the supermarket would not be allowed to accept payment, as they would then be selling alcohol to a minor... Dunno, thoughts please.

    Most young people drink, and some young people shop lift - for the vast majority it is a maturation issue - the Supermarkets can afford to lose a few pounds, and if the young person was really necking the cans they can wake up with a hangover.



    by the way - I ironed today... yes ironed - first time in god knows how many years!

    Oh heck ... my V M internet and tv have gone off .

    So much for negotiating a new deal .

    This approach (cancel, order elsewhere) has worked for others but not for me .

    Any ideas?

    Of course, I could be completely wrong .

    The most likely ............... a hangover.

    The least likely......the 17 year old will be charged with stealing alcohol.

    Tesco's cannot charge the 17 year old for the alcohol (unless they have fake ID).

    Tesco's did not give the 17 year old alcohol - so are not responsible.

    But as I am managing on my mobile tonight I may cave in ... or may not as it may be too late with tv and B.B. already off .

    And it would happen today, when my mobile number ported out so I am now managing on borrowed data from the kids .

    It is not illegal:

    For someone over 18 to buy a child over 16 beer, wine or cider if they are eating a table meal together in licensed premises.
    For a child aged five to 16 to drink alcohol at home or on other private premises.

    Presumably, we should get the 6 comparison on Villa Maria at Morrison's until 5pm tomorrow?
    Originally posted by josie
    Not necessarily. It could end as soon as 8.30 tomorrow morning - that's the approximate earliest I've known, although, by the way things seem to be more recently, it usually doesn't update these days until Wednesday.

    I don't know in what way the wines will change on the APG - I now have an M OOS of the Torres, although it does have the Wolf Blass Chardonnay. My other stores were generally the other way around - they could get no trace of Torres or OOS in the collection stores or the currently-comparing Wolf Blass could be absent from several. They should have them somewhere though, even if not as widespread as last week (which itself was starting to lose some in some places) - it was just with the other Wolf Blass going N/A, that may return next time or may just stay off now, that it's not, ahem, guaranteed to compare next time. IMO obviously as A would disagree. I am getting no price other than 7 on the Villa Maria in the Ms I have visited today.

    I have had luck with the Bird's Eye 42 Crispy Chicken Dippers as I have found a store with a full price SEL. Sadly the SEL is covered with an OOS label and there is no stock to be found anywhere in the store.

    However there is consolation of sorts as last year's Christmas stock of M Southern Fried Poppin' Chicken (190g), that many people will no longer have, is now 25p. Sadly the APG appears linked up to the version that appeared later, that many people will have, that will be full price. You can probably halve the prices of some of the Christmas versions of some frozen food products that currently appear on my list. They are in red packaging and are bagged, unlike the new versions that are in boxes and are the incorrect products as they are the full price versions that have superseded the clearance products. Separate from those, it looks like the BE 42 packs are being replaced by a downsized 38 pack version - I do not know what price that now is, as I do not have a SEL yet in the one place where they have appeared for me - I was not interested in scanning the product as it is bound to be nowhere near as good as the 42 pack product on clearance that hasn't been in stock in any of the stores I've visited at the times at which i have visited them so far.

    I am my own enemy, as it's my fault for posting on this thread that the 42 Chicken Dippers pack is 1, thus allowing people to know and to buy it out of the store in which I find the full price SEL. However, the information has been posted elsewhere on this thread before, so it would still have been known even if I hadn't mentioned it.
