    I don't know if it has been mentioned on here but Mum and I had 75 points when you buy shampoo in Boots and their cheapest one is 75p making it free. Don't try and use another coupon, eg double points as it didn't work for me, I suspect because it doubles the normal points which are not given when you get bonus points like this. I did both our shops on Saturday.

    Check your COS for new freebies

    I went to the Co-op to get the hippeas and Amstel - I knew my store had restocked the Hippeas but sadly no Amstrel.
    I did though get a coupon till spit, 25p off milk products - annoying when the milk has gone up 10p this week
    JUst wondering if the Starbucks latte which is on COS with 70p cashback counts as a milk product

    I was en route to Morrisons so I got the Amstrel from there - we don't have a single bottle left in the house now, huge backlog of free beer and free cider at one stage, even around Christmas but all that's left now is 3 Happy Downs and 4 cans of the whisky ginger mix

    Both accounts are now just over twenty and ready to withdraw but I am dithering slightly incase more freebies appear in the next day or two.
    Also just reached the level to get 5 paypal from shoppix so a good start to the week.

    Good find.

    There are also these re-useable bottles/tubs (remember to label them in case you mistake hair cream for toothpaste.

    3.59 for 12, free postage

    And these for toothpaste etc, or bigger ones for poo etc

    I've been getting odd bits for cashback so even the dormant accounts have some activity on them so I expect that explains why ...

    Check toblerones in asda. They are only 1.50 for 360g which is a great price & an excuse for a cheesecake. These were normal ones, not easter/xmas ones. Not showing online or on MSM so may be delisting & bringing back for Xmas, fathers day, etc.

    I called into an asda near work on the way home and they had at least 250 packs of richmond sausages on woopsies. They were 87p, but will be 10p by now. Never seen as many reduced sausages. Thought about stopping to get some, but did not have the freezer space.
