    I really don't like doing M targeted shops.

    I know we can only use MSM as a guideline but 1.90 for Bertolli?

    Really?

    This was the only flavour Rana left in store. The receipt is uploaded.

    I always used to have tea & a toasted tea cake with pennies to pay but I think the price of the tea cake has risen & as my dh always has something much more expensive Ive never really taken much notice but it always takes the 5.40 off. I treated a friend a few months ago & we both had tea & teacakes & I was surprised how much I had to pay.

    Bumped into the lovely elaine today.....we were both drooling over pallets of oranges that were due to be reduced.....but it never happened

    Wish you could have all seen us at the till, swapping APG's so each of us only had pennies to pay

    How is everyone?

    Has it been a good day?

    I've had a very productive Sunday and feel really organised going into the week ahead

I stopped using my paypal account many years ago when it was compromised. My son's and daughter's accounts were also compromised around the same time. Someone please shout if they catch up with everyone else and payout by BACS. Thanks.

    Finally been able to catch up..

    No Bubbs today


    Last week I ordered from dunelm 4 items totalling 15.50 via tcb for the bonus... dil wanted a cot bed duvet cover so I ordered the other 3 items..
    Monday I had an ans phone message saying 3 items were not in the shop but 1 was they would try and locate the other items and contact me when I could collect.
    I have had no correspondence since so I rang today
    A fairly brusque lady answered saying they had no record of my order, who rang me on Monday ? and as its been more than 2 days the items will have been returned to the warehouse...I was not amused,
    After speaking to a very courteous team leader he said if I went to the shop they would express the duvet cover to me but the other items were discontinued, this could only be done in store as a special link was need to override the free delivery, as dil wanted the cover for when I go down in the week (and she had already paid for it)that was my only option..30 mile round trip..
    At the store the cover was ordered and conformation email received..
    I then was given 10 gift card as a good will gesture, + a voucher for 2 hot drinks...
    So ive now forfeited my 2.50 bonus from tcb, in favour of Free express delivery to my door, 10 gift card and 6 for 2 hot drinks..not bad going as the duvet cover was only 9
    On the way out of the store I bought 4 boxes of xmas design tissues for 10p each
    We then stopped in at A for some more wine (no different to whats already posted) got some pasta which ive now uploaded the receipt for, but more importantly managed to use some wombles...my store refuses to take them saying if a cc was used then the persons whos card it was needs to use the apg...so we try not to antagonise too much
    Came back to my local T and got the free rustlers burgers ..cant remember where they were from and the Robinsons squash + rtc big eggs 2 1/2 dozen for 80p, bb end april
    Then Debenhams to use my last 2 5 off vouchers...I bought 2 Matthew Williamson candles rtc should have been 16each i paid 1.60 in gift card after my 5 moc came off
    then more candles from wilco..2 lots of '4 candles'
    No rtc in my sd
    Then used the last of my m&s ap codes

    finally got home at 4.30 after going out at 10.30

    Stew and dumplings in slow cooker which I prepared earlier so no cooking to do
    took gs to his mums for the night 30mile round trip..they are all going to watch the wrestling a paid for thingy from usa.

    been snapping receipts for the various apps, chasing up a love2shop voucher that hadn't been received (I hadn't actually claimed it) whilst watching a nine year old episode of Lewis on itv hub and drinking a glass or 3 of wine ....
    soon be tomorrow and it starts all over again
    bed time for me I think..nighty night

If you're referred by an existing user that's another 100 points for each party. Rewards cost between 650-2800 points & are all geared toward mum/baby/under 5s - some make nice gifts. I've managed to total about 1400 points in a couple of months from wombles etc. Any receipt with 'nappies' or 'baby wipes' listed seems to be accepted, I've not yet had a receipt that specified 'pampers'
