    Receipt hog.
    What is the point, it's taking forever to get anywhere......
    Do people bother with this one? I much prefer shopprise that ssm talked me into.

    Yes I do receipt hog. I tend to load the bigger value recs at the start of the week and then when I get over 100 points I load the low value ones later in the week - you can have 3 receipts from each shop per day. They divide the month neatly into weeks.
    My only complaints - very slow loading the points, can take days sometimes and they don't do things in date order - hence why I do bigger receipts early in the week or you might only get 5 points for them.
    I also find it logs out on me at regular internals
    It takes me about 10 to 12 weeks to get enough points for 5 paypal - I've got 8 since October 2016 - 40 worth, OK its not fabulous riches but paypal tends to be treat money and I use the receipts anyway for shoppix,shopprize and Big DL

    Hog takes much longer than the others as usually only manage to accrue around 150pts per week which over a year with bonus points is approx 35, whereas Big D 50 and Shoppix 60, but Shopprize 130 so all in all about 275pa.

    If you put that into reality and divide that 275 by the time taken to snap receipts it works out as pennies per hour.

    But then again it's money for nothing except your time.

    Also you can upload receipts, one per shop per day - 5 points for each receipt unless you have won a bonus and then its 25. I've only drawn down once on this

    Sadly the M&S premier club seems not to be taking new members at the moment - if you want to torture yourself have a look at what you have missed.
    I've been a member forever. it costs 10 a month as I don't have the travel insurance bit. it more than pays for itself though

    https://bank.marksandspencer.com/existing-customer-information/premium-club/

    As for Sparks - you have the app on your phone and you check it on a Thursday for new offers? You can also see your account online and your offers - also worth checking that your details are complete and correct - mine hadn't got my mobile number.
    If its yes to all of the above I would message them to ask why you are not getting any birthday treats - my email came about a week before

    You might have to message them to get to the bottom of why you are being ignored on your birthday ...

    Now instead we chase glitches and look for yellow labels, we use cashback websites and apps, try me frees, survey websites, receipt snapping websites, we test products for companies and sometimes there are a few coupons as well ..
