    Yes I got loads of cereal bars and hardly ate any of the "moments" ones even when newer they tasted like cardboard no one liked them. I posted about them last year as was thinking of putting out for the birds but the chocolate ones ended up in the compost as someone kindly posted they were not suitable.

    I wasn't sure if the cereal box was from the same glitch. Not sure if it's clear the BB date is 2014. So yes 5 years ago sounds about right, I think that box was rescued from my mite infestation in what was my bathroom if anyone remembers that.

    Funny that the mites or what ever they were never went for the SpecK wonder if trying to tell me something.

    I remember that one, you were supposed to be able to print one voucher but you could do it everyday. That was just before I found the Elite so 2012 I would say.

    I think the boxes of Special K were in T, 3 for 2 rather than 3 for 2. I remember losing money on that one as my parents ended up nabbing most of them from me

    My last lot of Special K was from when Ts used to do their Wednesday errors, I cant recall what offer they got wrong that time but was enough for me to get straight down there and grab quite a few boxes.

    Edit - I see PK got the detail right

    I saw it on 10wys - an acquaintance went into a garage with T express bought 1 lot of the glitch then told the manager the price was wrong and the manager then refused the sale of any other boxes- how stupid of my acquaintance

    It was the first one I went out for on purpose too, probably not long after our local Express opened.

    Was someone saying the Robinson's website wasn't working? It is for me. Perhaps try a different browser?

    Did someone say there is a way to get them totally free please?

    Evening peeps.

    I am totally deaf in my left ear. Build up of wax apparently. I've tried every method to clear it but to no avail! I'm due to have it syringed in 2 weeks. I've had it for 2 months now! It's just so weird going out as all the sounds seem to come from a different place!

    On a plus note. If you have the Robinsons vouchers, You can use them on the self serve in T's for the 2 for 2 squash without any intervention, making them free. Just use 2 at a time.

    Ahhhh, just tuned in and web pages have changed. Very disconcerting -
    I can now see badges with number of posts and years of service and a different symbol for quotes and multi-quotes and a green or red light.

    Thought it had changed to new look as first but it's not that.
    Has it happened to anyone else or am I just a freak !

    Edit -maybe it is the new one, gone to check.

    This is probably a stupid question, but could you mix the Crosse&Blackwell and Baxters Favourites vs Tesco? As long as you bought 20 of the C&B, and in 5s for the Baxters? I can't think why it wouldn't work, but I just wanted to double check. Also, could you add the Ainsleys Cuppas in to the same shop?

    Thanks!
