    thats msm picking it up, as you know m is dodgy. have you tried a t comparison as its a good find if you have. go on out you go lol
    Originally posted by zippydooda
    M is not dodgy, only certain items that the price collectors don't pick up such as fresh fruit and veg. that it seems their systems can't deal with. There is usually a reason why other items fail. There are incorrect SELs but some items seem to have offer prices showing 'everywhere' (at least for me). This particular item seems commonplace in M so there is no reason why it would not have been picked up correctly.

    The more 'dodgy' comp. for me is Avs T when there is a failure to pick something up from T's website or items get picked up at full price for T. There are reasons why some items fail, due to wording on competitor websites making the computer system fail to recognise they are the same item at both stores, whilst the only comp. that works on those items is the M comp.

    No problem picking up M price on that one.
    In fact, bad luck as msm is showing M on 6 until 29/6 offer.
    I would not know - I suspect this may have gone on offer today but price collection stuck on last Wednesday - and no way to rescue the receipt anyway if a shop is done on Monday, even if it was waited on and checked on a later date. It may have been on offer as part of the 'cleaning event' although I can't recall seeing dishwasher tablets of this size in that or any 6 price (doesn't mean that it wasn't there) as 6 for 31 tablets is way out of my league to notice.

    If it has changed to 6 today, I wouldn't even notice it earlier today in M as it's the very day I am not doing a proper check and I have incomplete stores due to visiting fewer than normal. So, you'll all have to wait until after Wednesday to see!

    I have now looked at m.com, although online prices are not always the same as instore - a point emphasised by M in its April news leaflet. I think they are the same on the 'cleaning event' items though even though I have items in other parts of the store at the moment where m.com is out of line, causing me to remove expiry dates from them and move them in my list but I have now put them back, with expiries based on other flavours that do have offers online as the full price online flavours are clearly showing offers instore. I cannot see any 31 dishwasher tablets in the 'cleaning event' online - I can see a box of washing powder that started off on half price but is now full price and is still part of the event at its now full price (just because it is in an 'event' does not mean it is on offer price seemingly) - I have several other dishwasher pack sizes at M 8 price, which I have already been aware of since Easter (when the 'event' started) and the relatively long date online for the expiry for 31 tablets suggests the offer in M may have started today. Obviously I did not notice this product if it was showing me the 6 price today - 6 is too expensive for me to notice and I wouldn't necessarily check every section in the aisle in my next store, sometimes only outstanding items.

    Just read on FB that: 'as of the 1st of May alcohol will no longer be counted for APG'S' Not sure if this is everywhere or Scotland. Something to do with the minimum pricing of alcohol that starts on on the 1st May Hopefully it won't be true.
