    yes the dtd,jacobs creek rose,baileys,racks of lamb,pringles are a few i remember from those days that was when i first started on mse really.the magnums i was thinkin of was a different one you could get cornettos as well,we got ours from the local express,i miss the work experience doing the wed promos.

    I am still getting through the dishwasher tablets from that DTD promotion which ended on the same day as the Royal Wedding! Those racks of lamb were wonderful. Sadly my local T didn't stock them which rather cramped my style a bit and it was very late in the day before I discovered an Extra reasonably close by which I had not realised was there. But they were absolutely delicious. Do I remember that they were either free or that they paid us to take them away?! Happy days.

    We still do really well even though the days of that OTT DTD have gone as have the days when they would take any coupon. I remember when I bought my first flat and the interest rates seemed to be going up every month. I used to use any coupon I could find, but they were not numerous as I couldn't afford mags, and there didn't seem to be whoopsies around either, except sometimes from market stalls. I really struggled to make ends meet, cycled to work and couldn't afford to eat out at all. Far more freebees around now, though I don't underestimate how hard it is for some people to make ends meet.

    No it's finished but they'd left the signs up, so they had to give me a refund for one bottle and a 2 giftcard for overcharging me.

    Used to be able to, but not since we had to register APG's to our 'in-store' accounts.
    Till adjusts your APG value to only include permitted purchase items.
    So if you had groceries to value of 5 and put in a GC for 10. Then presented APG's to value of 15. The till adjusts the value of the APG to 5 - so you still have to find payment for the 10 (and lose 10 value on your APG's so don't risk it!)

    Oh sorry TS it's a one off called 'Barry's Bargains' in Consett, Co. Durham.

    Today's haul included 8 full sized lion bars - 1
    Battenburg 40p
    Tubs of white drinking chocolate - 50p
    8 (big) bags of walkers crisps 1
    12 pack of Cheddars - 1
    3 boxes of Jacobs Crisptoasts - 60p (they are really nice!)
    1.35 litres Fairy WUL - 1

    The shop grew from a market stall and most things are around about their sell by date. It is a great shop for all the things that are bad for you, chocolate, biscuits, crisps etc.
    The cakes are usually Mr Kipling's or M&S without the packaging!

    They also have black pudding and and pease pudding for us northerners!

    PS haven't tried the coffee yet, it might be carp!

    It seems 'thinner' to me, I have put my screen size up to 125% and it still isnt touching the edges.

    Just don't like it, hate things changing, don't know where anything is and can't see as many posts at once.

    You can buy ill-fitting clothes and return them without a receipt for a credit note. I do this in a large store and go to CS straight away so that the price doesn't have a chance to change.

    i`m not sure because i thought we had discussed that with the ap vouchers they wouldnt issue a credit note with those and the wording is v,similar on these.if i hadnt used the ap vouchers to buy sheets i would have stocked up on bedding,it may have to be that again.

    I have deep envy of everyones bargain stalls and shops this afternoon, even though technically I am not needing anything

    Especially ground coffee which OH buys - mostly he buys it for work
    And the gingerbread candles, my own fault as they were still around at the start of April when we got home ...

    We have though made it to Sainsburys today with the recycling. Mostly I was in search of shopimum freebies which our store does not stock but I live in hope.
    I did though get the free Primula cheese tubes for shopimum - good for going on the numerous free crackers type things we got last month.

    Sainsburys are making a huge effort to promote their own brand items now at lower prices - they are actually making a very good effort so if anyone normally avoids Sainsburys then its worth another look see - every section has red lower priced SELS - off the top of my head I noticed on the cook in sauce section various curry and spiced type jars for 63p and pasta type sauces for 83p or similar - much lower than the branded versions. At first glance I wondered if they were RTC but it seems to be the new low prices.

    For instance

    Sainsburys have their own brand cat food tins in gravy - they have just rebranded their own cat food and they are part of the low price range. The packs of 6 tins are now 2.30 (were 2.50) so that's 0.38 per can - cheaper now than Aldi canned food which is/was 0.39p a tin - so a regular shopping list item has now gone from the Aldi list onto the Sainsburys list

    Thank you so much Scamps and Pandora. I shall print some and use them. Good for when the kids visit but also for the food bank.

    Edit: I am getting the 404 error too after I click through a few pages.

    Evening peeps.

    I don't like this new layout!!

    Ages ago I mentioned that I was having problems with my Alcatel phone, well today I treated myself to a new one, albeit second hand. I got the Huawei P8 lite 2016 (dosen't have the fingerprint thingy) It look absolutely brand new though. Paid 75 and got 40 for the crappy Alcatel so 35 for it.

    Lovely phone but I cant find out how to download the APG app. I've looked on Google play but it only shows the Asda shopping app! I used to use it when I'm out and about to check wombles.

    Also, a big thanks to IzzeyB about the soup. Bought 50 of the Ainsley cuppa soups. Lovely on an evening with some toast.

    I also had a Sainsburys till spit MOC last week for Breyers ice cream for 2.50 off which I had no intention of using as it was 5 a tub
    But on 10ways last night someone had spotted it now on offer for 2.50, half price - ie free ice cream

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?Query=breyers

    So I got my tub, chocolate version, today and I then noticed the end freezer with random items dumped into it with no relevant SELS. Right at the bottom I noticed black and white striped tubs which were Judes black coconut ice cream. It rang a bell vaguely - seen it mentioned somewhere or maybe 10ways or total couponery or suchlike in March.
    I took 2 to the till and they went through for 44p each
    Then out popped another till spit - again for 2.50 MOC for Breyers ice cream so I went back and got the vanilla version
    So 2 free tubs of ice cream and 2 Judes for 88p

    Does anyone know, please, whether I can sneak an A gift card into my shop and pay with an APG? I know the t&c say not, but I have a feeling this has been done successfully? Thanks in advance.

    i regularly put apgs onto gift cards

    you can only put any value of a multi saving as the till sees the full price
    eg
    todays soup glitch
    10 x heinz soup tins

    till sees 10 x 95p = 9.50
    actual in store after multi = 6

    this means you can put up to 3.50 on to a gift card as thats the difference in price after multi.
    chrisv also does this. i do it on self service most of the time.

    Anyone local to me it's called "Rogers" and thy have a FB page to show what they have in stock.

Steve and I usually go to the original Poole one, but also the Southampton one which opened later last year. They have now opened on in Plymouth too and have plans to spread further around the region. We have got to know the guys running it and they seem on the ball business wise. Certainly worth a visit

    I would have liked some of the glitchy wine, not for myself but great for raffle prizes, and for a friend and my B'i'L, but I just couldn't push myself to get out there for any

    But I really must get back into it, so hoping for more glitches to come .......... on anything lol
