    SweetnSavvy was that today? Does that mean the 342 in store is still working please? I thought yesterday was the last day?

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    But if you buy wine that is 5 and 3 for 2, the till sees 15 spent so you can get a 5 gift card and pay with apg's

    We have a local store well I say store it's an industrial unit, not tried it yet but it sells stuff close to or past BB date but you tend to have to buy in bulk so not tried it yet.

    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

    I came across this exercise suggested for seniors, to build muscle strength in the arms and shoulders. It seems so easy, so I thought I'd pass it on. The article suggested doing it three days a week. Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

    With a 5-lb. potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides, and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, then relax. Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

    After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks. Then 50-lb. potato sacks, and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb. potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

    Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.

    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

Now it is 65p in Asda, 70p in Tesco and Sainsbury. I try to stock up in Asda but can't always get there, Sainsbury is generally more convenient than Tesco as there is a small one in a town I go to.

    If this is typical across quite a range of products its well worth having another look at Sainsburys
