    I did quote TM's post about this too but it seems to have disappeared . 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

    When you say relaunch the app do you mean just log out and log in again or should I delete and reinstall?

    As expected, it seems there were very few offers expiring in M today-possibly the fewest I've had. Hopefully it will allow store staff in M to catch up with the large amount of changes last week. I am still to catch up with those on my list. It looks to me that the Twin Baguette and Reduced Fat Twin Baguette are no longer on 1 offer but have gone to 1.40 full price as every store I have has changed to that price. Perhaps there's some 1 flashed stock available still around somewhere. I would say it's likely to be found at 1.40 more than not though. Unless the view provided by my stores - the partial picture always provided by a set of stores - has caused me to think this - I often get another perspective and change my mind when I see a further store.

    Other than the couple of baguettes - I have 1 price now going onto the two 9 slices packs versions today - the Surf 90 wash washing powder has gone off 7 offer and is now 14. That offer could have be off on Monday, due to my still having 7 SEL and OOS in one of my stores and thinking that the 14 SEL elsewhere was incorrect but having no stock to check and no trace in my other stores. I have those two stores the same as they were today, with no stock again, but I have visited another store that has stock of the product, with 14 SEL, and it does scan at 14. I'm now also aware that the Red Pepper & Mozarella Flatbread has variable prices depending on which BC (or maybe BCs if it's got both) your store has. One of my more regular stores has only 1.63 BC stock - my other usual stores are useless no trace - but I have found 1 version in stock elsewhere. I will try to update the list - I don't think I ever took that product off as I imagined some other store always has the products I don't have.

    Most of the updating is from last Wednesday with a bit from Monday and not much to add from today. I also have one extra day (whoopee!) as not needing to do any store visits tomorrow to try to get the list updated with all the information I have - there was so much last Wednesday I needed to do more stores to capture all the ranges, and as much as I could from within them, that were likely to have changes - so another half week with a further day and a little more than a usual Wednesday is now outstanding. I think I will have another updating code - I think it will be items in bold that are in square brackets - "[Bold]" - will be added to show items from today's price check. Bold italics will be from Monday and just regular bold all those items from last Wednesday. That all for the future - and thanks for the Red Grapefruit 3 pack - I will add that to the information I have, it probably will get to the list later when I update it and I will try to see what that's comparing against next time. There is a wonky kiwi pack in M but I'm not seeing it's price as very good because I've seen much cheaper in the past on packs that have more kiwis in them. The wonky veg. is not always the cheapest on the market - cheaper regular stuff can often or sometimes be found elsewhere and in my opinion the prices on a lot of the wonky veg. seem to be the prices we would have had as offer prices on regular veg. before and no cheaper than that - and the Wonky Limes at 80p, that were a five pack, have become no good as they've been a four pack for some time now for me.

    Quite a few of the Ms I've visited Monday or today have changed to full price SEL on the Aussie Miracle Sachet, even though it is still on 1 offer price today - I would not be surprised if the APG tipped over into getting M at full price on it.

    I only discovered this thread by accident. My mom used to collect coupons when I was small roughly 30-35 years ago - we used to get loads as my aunt used to deliver leaflets which normally consisted of money off coupons and there were always plenty of spares.

    Safeway would take anything and when I was in my late teens/early twenties I always had a bundle in my bag just in case I popped in for anything. I even had my favourite till operators who would take loads some would only take a certain amount.

    Sadly very few coupons and you have to buy the product but I still hunt out for bargains. Top bargain this week when I went into my local One Stop was a pork leg joint reduced from 4.50 to 1.35. So far it has fed four as a roast dinner, two as sandwiches and there is probably still enough left for two or three more lots of sandwiches. I do have an electric slicer which makes it go way further than cutting my hand.

There was at least 15 big crates of fruit & veg, all decent stuff - but no salad leaves which is unusual. 5 of the crates were just courgettes and loads of small pots of mixed fruit salad 9which are very nice as had 1 for tea) and a stack of bananas.

    Oops forgot to say good morning. Thank Zippy, will try and remember for next time. I had written myself instructions, but could not find them.

    No updated wine list this morning Hope everyone did well out of the glitch.
