    Redfox -I was just wondering how much time you spend monitoring the Elite ?
    How do you manage to keep so up-to-date at any time of day or night, seven days a week
    It must take a huge amount of your time, or is there a special system that alerts you when something is wrong?

    Poor Bubbs is so upset that she has stopped posting. I'm sure you know she meant no harm and it was a genuine mistake. Could you possibly let her know that no-one was trying to upset her and we all want her back.

    Perhaps the rules need explaining a bit clearer. I don't understand what they mean and the difference between what can and cannot be posted from a link.
    Sometimes it's easy to state these things, without realising that the terminology used is not understood by everyone, or it doesn't mean what they think.

    Hope you are having a great day and we're not making too much work for you.

    Just bringing this list forward as I had a new MOC today, one I've not had before.

    I just went in for wisemens milk for 1 and they also have the extra strong garlic baguettes for 1 and I got 50p off frozen veg till spit MOC. I got the frozen mixed veg which is on offer for 1 - so after 50p MOC and after 10p blue card discounts - 40p in real money

    Co-op till spits I've had
    50p off breakfast cereals - usually get porridge oats with this
    50p off pet food
    50p off pies
    50p off soft drinks - very nice cloudy lemon for 65p
    50p off milk products - eg milk
    50p off sliced meats
    50p off biscuits
    50p off frozen veg

    it does take a great deal of time as there is no system to alert me, it all just needs reading. Then there's the rest of the boards I have to monitor and the spam watching and reporting as well. All purely voluntary and I must admit that I never seem to have any time for anything else....

    The post by bubbs wasn't deleted by me, it was deleted by the Forum Team because it was in breach of the rules on affiliate links. It seems for some reason she has taken it personally although the same would have happened to anybody's post that broke those rules.

    I did post a note here explaining to her why the post was deleted when she queried it so I can't really do any more, I'm afraid.

    The free single use coffee cup is ending at the end of the month. Coffee is still free though. You'll have to pay for the cup or use a reusable plastic cup. I think this is a good thing

    That was me, I think, originally. Glad it's helped



    Are you using the Pampers Club app? If you upload this receipt you will get points for the nappies purchase plus 500 free points just for joining. 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'
