    Thanks all my details are correct, but I didn't put a phone number in - is there any bonus to putting a number?

    I'm tempted to top up the wine but decided that I'm happy to wait for Lidl 2.99 offers to stock up as/when needed. Their cava is still my favourite when it's 3.49 of course.

    In the very old olden days (when Sada would take any coupon off your bill as long as they sold the stuff, so you didn't actually have to buy it) I once gave them so many coupons that they paid for a trolley full of shopping plus they gave me 2.60 odd in cash.

    The receipt was as long as my arm, with all the items going on and then all the coupons being deducted one by one. It was my best shop ever.

    I think it was late 80s, possibly early 90s, as DD was in junior school at the time.

    My next best shop was at T's in the late 90s. Herbal Essences were being sold in a promotional box. Inside each box was a coupon for a buy one, get one free. So we bought a few, cut the coupons off the box, went back in, got more using the coupons, then repeated, and so it went on...

    OH wanted to go to Sainsburys today - I treated him to Jakemans Lozenges ,Honey & Lemon Menthol - 20p cashback on GJ
    Still they are 65p in S rather than 60p elsewhere.

    I got till spits but all for things much cheaper elsewhere
    140 points for Bolognese pasta melt 800g - 3.90 (3 in Morrisons and Asda)
    50 points for watercress, spinach and rocket salad - 1.25 (1 or cheaper in Mr T or even A)
    60p off Stork ready bake cupcakes 3 (2 in Mr T and Morrisons)
    2.50 off beyers ice cream 5 (2.50 in Mr T)

    You just prompted me to get PE app and my free pizza hadn't arrived either - but then I noticed it is explicit about what you have to complete in the profile, including two restaurants and favourite items, and needs to show 100% complete . I had missed this as we only normally go to one and I couldn't be bothered saying my favourites . It now says 100% complete so hopefully it will prompt it to generate the free Pizza now .

    Does anyone know if there is an age restriction on the PE app please as I shot by the T&Cs ? Just wondering if Little Anons qualify?

    Many thanks

Once you've completed your profile (selected your 3 restaurants, your 4 favourite mains and dietary preferences) you have to wait 6 hours. The voucher doesn't automatically go straight to your wallet, you need to relaunch the app and as you sign it there's like an offers wheel on the screen. Select the one which says your free pizza and add it to your wallet. HTH

    Sorry don't know about children having app
