    Of course, I distracted myself into a tangent of rambling and forgot to say what I meant to say.

    Now this website has somehow transferred me to another website (albeit apparently 'owned' by MSE itself) and I've lost what I was posting. I won't be able to rewrite what I was saying but maybe this will make me succinct - whilst a 50p A price vs 50p competitor that comes out best overall is just 5p off (or 5p back) where it really comes into its own is with the glitches we get.

    I was then on about the fact it's not always about targetted shops, but if you need vouchers in the first place to be able to buy items - those would be APG vouchers and you would then be having to use them at A and could just pay A's prices as A, whilst not always cheap, isn't a generally expensive supermarket across the range. Although competitors can go to better prices - for example half price is often better than A's rollbacks at 1, whilst A might give a low amount off (especially if the offer price of the competitor is lower, 10% is then lower) if a target shop is done at the time of the competitor offer plus a slight delay, you may need real cash to buy from the competitor - so might be better sometimes to buy at A's rollback price when on rollback there and just buy the one or two items with a womble. It's effectively free money to spend at A, which would need real cash to buy from the competitor.

    I don't always buy at A though - on some or even many occasions particularly with essential items, one place or another - and it is a different place on each so still need to shop around and buy each at the best place - is cheaper than A on some non-comparable item, different pack size etc. no equivalent at A, and I'll buy the item at the place that has the lowest price. I can't buy at A and compare to Aldi for example. And S may be cheaper on Basics Chicken Pies as A doesn't have S/price. Buying a more expensive item at A would still be worse off, even if with a womble, as whether womble or real cash it is all the same as if the value was real cash. So you'd be best using the womble to buy more cheaper items at A, on which A was best, and then paying less cash at elsewhere rather than necessarily buying a more expensive product of same type at A with the womble and then not being able to buy the cheaper items that you would have bought at A and still needing cash to buy them from somewhere (as you still need those items).

    I normally buy my Chicken Pies (if I buy them at all) from T - I don't know why as they seem to have very little chicken and have to be prised away from their foil once cooked which generally ruins them - I have been having to buy 4 Minced Beef & Onion from M as cheapest pies recently - but recently bought one pack of Chicken Pies from S - and, at same price as T, was much better - more chicken it seemed to me and came out of the foil easily. I was buying from T to get CC points, but only bought from S of course as I had an exact 2.50 in Nectars to spend (I know you can double up but I never need to buy any of the non-grocery items ever anyway so just prefer to spend the 2.50 or 5 and do so on the few items on which S actually is 'good' value). In fact it was my third S that happened to have the pies, after trying two stores that had no stock of "sale items". It wasn't really costing me to travel to different stores as I was walking and getting my exercise by walking around my local area. I finally bought something when at my final store and given the final option of what items I was able to buy that day. It was the only one that had the pies - I wondered whether to spend the 2.50 on a shop at all or to leave with nothing and then be able to buy the 50p Rapeseed Oil later that my first store was OOS but might come back into stock and have no Nectar points to spend if I did a shop now. I think I made the right choice though - of apparently also buying a large bag of sweets on the day their offer seems to have ended - as I went back to my store with the Rapeseed Oil SEL on sale, whilst stocks last, that I was told was something that might come back into the store later - and I don't think I will ever catch up with it later as now no trace at all in the store. No Rapeseed Oil there (of the right one) and SEL has completely gone as well now.

    I may buy two more packs of pies at S when I have freezer space back later, now I have another exact 2.50. Of course 50p on something else preferably without buying anything that is more expensive at S than elsewhere. Or I will buy Mince Beef & Onion in future from M as I generally like M more than S that are usually v.expensive on quite a lot of things in my view and just don't really like S or T that much. Think I won't buy Eday Chicken pies at T anymore as they are not as good as the Basics ones currently are at S. Unless this "negative feedback" on the internet maybe gets seen by T and they change their pies in response - you never know!

    I mentioned nothing about chicken pies, or rapeseed oil, in my OP that I lost. I don't know why I ramble. (Or, rather, keep editing my post to add further thoughts, that then make me ramble.)

    It's Grand National Day Tomorrow. We have done it in the past, so against my better judgement, as I am carp at organising things, we should try to raise some money for good causes. Usual rules apply. Pick a number, copy the list (highlight, then press Ctrl 'C'), then paste it into a new post (press Ctrl 'V') and I will do my best to keep up with the chaos. I will request someone as my trusty person who will keep a copy list to the horses/corresponding numbers to make sure I don't cheat. The winner gets to choose the cause and we all pay our 2 to that cause. I hope im not breaking any forum rules, as all charity links/donation links will be put onto the relevant forum section. As ever there's no obligation to take part at all, and if it all goes breastage up, blame Bubbs Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!

Will take everything onboard and see what I am doing but if I am honest, the asda price guarantee is probably not how I can stretch my money too much. When I go down there, I will try the womble but as I say I don't see till receipts as most of the trolleys are in the shopping centre. They have wheels that lock when you try to go outside to taxi rank. So Savvybuyer thanks again.

    I had a Saturday job in Woollies. I started off in Fancy goods, moved onto pick and mix and ended up on the deli. I couldn't work the scales so just put whatever I thought in a bag

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

    Glad you got it sorted now. Yes the hot drink code is very handy too

    Also on COS there are 5 Mash Direct products on BOGOF but only from Morrison's.

    Sometimes you see them in the reduced to clear fridge - our store has them with the "Free from" section so its not easy to find them.

    Months back I found a pile of MOCs for mash Direct in our bigger Morrisons - only 25p but with very long use by dates and I still have 4 left . Errant son likes the vegetable bakes, very big thick burger shaped things that go well to bulk out meals like sausages and chops.

    I bought 4 packs of the cauli cheese last night which were reduced to 7p each and separated them into 2 transactions, 2 in each shop, and put them through the tills in the middle of the shops amongst loads of other whoopsied items, each shop came to about 6.

    When I uploaded the receipts I claimed for 2 each time as I had bought 2 in each shop, expecting to get 1.80 back for each transaction. As the offer is buy 2 get 1.80 back I should have only claimed 1, not 2, they paid out 3.60 on each shop

    2 of our cats went out in the garden after supper for a bit of a meander - I think they were just relieved that it wasn't raining, snowing, hailing ...and they were enjoying the light night.
    Then we noticed by the shed the fox had arrived. He sat for ages sniffing and tasting the air and waiting for the cats to move on. The cats and the fox were aware of each other but neither were bothered. Then as the cats were not going in the fox just ambled off back into the field ...

    We've been feeding our fox right through the winter and into this long cold and wet spring. She sits on our patio each night waiting for her bowl of scraps. She's become more timid and when we go to open the door she runs off then comes back again, she's even frightened of Stanley Boy! When DH and I go whoopsie shopping and see something in the fridges which she may like and that we probably wouldn't eat and it's been sitting there for a while as nobody else has picked it up, we get it for her. As one of us takes it we say 'oh Amelia will like that', as in Amelia Fox Last night she had half a gala pork pie but left the pastry
