    From memory, when the post somehow moves on to the Grabbit board, you have the option to click "expired" so that it can be transferred over the the "It's gone but was it any good" sub-board.

    Just a note as to where I am with the M list - it should be continually up-to-date as expired regular offer items are removed after each collection date. I have now caught up with Wednesday 4th April. I still have most new items from 9th and 11th April to add. It seemed M had made some price changes since 11th, putting several prices back to full price. I am not bothered with expiry date 12th on the Avs M list until, in theory, tomorrow as price collection day was 11th so these items should still work regardless of whether M has changed that missed the collection day. However, some on msm/m.com that have expiry dates off in the future are showing full price, suggesting they may have gone back up in advance of tomorrow or since last Wednesday (11th) when they were supposed to be on for several more weeks. I don't think they have changed - there are also ranges of items with some items showing the offers but other flavours showing full price. I have overridden m.com and put all items on the offer price as I have gone by what I know to be right, what I have seen instore, that all the range have been displaying offer prices. I don't accept the full prices are correct until I see them in more than one store in the near future - therefore, if there are items on the list, which there are, that have just been added and which show M offer prices but m.com says full price, then they have been deliberately and intentionally added to the list - m.com full price has been seen and been rejected as I believe it to be incorrect as regards instore prices last Wednesday. Similarly, items which have past expiry dates but are still on the list are, as mentioned before, still believed to be on offer and the offer rolled over (still continuing to await me to find a new date if there is one): again they are intentionally left on the list (unless it is the odd one that I have, very rare for me to do this but it does happen occasionally, not noticed is still on list and have missed).

    I will not be doing a price collection tomorrow, at least not a proper one. I do need to go to M already (out of bread by tomorrow, will not last until Wednesday) so I will get just whatever I happen to see - there are a small number of items due to have expired that I will try to look at but there are a lot of items due to expire by Wednesday. I see no point printing off the list, to check properly in M tomorrow, only to have to print off the whole lot again two days later to include the past week's information. There is so much from last Wednesday week that I cannot just manually add them to my current hard copy from before then - it will take forever! Therefore, I will see what has expired in M tomorrow, but it will not be a complete check and will endeavour to take off what has afterwards, whilst I deal with adding 9th and 11th April items to the list in order to check the whole lot on Wednesday. I expect there to be quite a lot of changes in M by Wednesday, according to my list showing many expiring items for 17th April but few in advance of that date (that are not the ones that have rolled over last time already).

    I have last Monday and Wednesday to do - there was not much change, that is to the pre-existing offers, on either of those dates and anything that expired on either of them should already have been deleted or crossed out. Whilst I have numerous new items every time, there was relatively less compared to what I have had before on other dates (and certainly much less than Wednesday 4th). The main items to add are the Heinz baby foods - fruit pots 4x100g and the Heinz By Nature (formerly Little Kidz) 230g meals but not Apricot with Chicken & Rice as that one is full price in M (as at last Wednesday, 11th and believed to be that on 9th as well fwiw) and in any event it does not appear to be on online A. There are also some Walnut and Coconut Oils to check to see if they are available in A or T and some lower prices on Pearl Barley, M's Bulger Wheat 500g, Cous Cous, Yellow Split Peas, Chickpeas, Haricot/Pinto Beans etc. Bernard Matthews Dinosaur Turkey Roll seemed to have gone to 75p and fwiw I saw M Brown Onions 5Kg showing 1.50.

    Can anyone else see that this thread says expired left of post reply at top ?

    Other threads just have post reply strange

    You need not worry - whilst I do not have an up-to-date hard copy of the M list yet (being still stuck in March on that), I have my own electronic copy of how far I have got so far in case the thread suddenly disappears. It is 2018, but you would have thought it was 1818 or 1918 as, despite it being the 21st century, I have no ability to take the electronic copy with me to M and view it in my car outside to ensure I have everything I need from instore - instead I have to rely on hard copy. No electronic method of me getting prices from instore either.

    Also, although I can't verify this as I'm on the old green version, it may show (or perhaps not) for those on the new blue version.

    If the button is pressed enough times it lets the mods know a deal has expired. But nothing actually happens to the thread automatically, it needs human intervention at that point. It's really not important and certainly not worth you worrying about. Just ignore it
