    Just noticed something I like about the new blue version of the Elite I have been changed over to.
    When I press Thank You, which is in green a banner shoots out saying Glad You Like It

    Bought a Lavazza Milk Frother a few days ago from Tesco,, have been after one for ages.
    A lonely one on the shelf the colour I wanted, reduced to 7.49 from 39.99. Just said clearance..
    It's brilliant, can now make coffee in Dolce Gusto and have frothy milk on top, hate that milk power that you can buy with the pods.
    Or use it with filter coffee. Love it.

    Heinz soup glitch (and maybe other brands in 5 for 3) possibly back on today? For one day only.

    Heinz soups have lost their mbuy again on A online. Are they still 5 for 3 instore today as they went from 5 for 3 to 95p (when we bought them as they were 5 for 3 instore) to 5 for 3 online and have now gone back to 95p?

    It seems the offer was rolled over, as one of my stores put it back onto the SELs on the afternoon we were buying (they were 5 for 3 instore throughout that day of course as originally due to end the day after) and the mbuy reappeared online after we bought. It seems conceivable that there could be a 5 for 3 instore in A today and that the offer could be ending in A tomorrow as I note the 5 for 3 in M (obviously according to online as I have no clue from instore) is valid until today.

    Not that I need any more Heinz soups at the moment.

    The A offer may be ending generally as items other than the Heinz 400g soups are also, it seems, showing straight prices online. There could be other items in the offer (if it exists as I suspect it does) that may now have good comparisons against elsewhere - I do not know whether or what competitor prices may have changed between last week and now and no time to check.

    I have just been and checked 3 other bags and found my driving licence in the zip pocket of the last one.

    It was huge bag can't remember where on earth I took it to need transferring my licence from my usual handbag.

    I guess it will come to me at some point...

    I know DM it's my age.

And sometimes people will be happy with the scan of your licence. I use the Stocard app on my iphone to store cards. A John Lewis SA told me about it and he could scan my JL card from the app.

    Good morning every one ....as it is my 60th next week I have booked to go to New York for 8 days ......... turning into a pensioner disgracefully

    Benefits of being 60:
    • free prescriptions and eye tests
    • Boots Advantage card extra points
    • Railcard
    • If in London, free tube and bus travel I think
    • National Trust pensioner rate (but join the Scottish NT instead as it is cheaper)

    What have I missed?

    Well the dusting, decorating etc continues!!

    The grumpy one has now b@ggered my Dyson stick thing, He has an adversion to using the big old Dyson monster.
    No probs I thought yesterday, we haven't had it that long.... can I heck find any trace of where or when I bought it I know I can be dizzy at times, but even if I hadn't filed the receipt we should still have the instruction leaflet... nowhere to be found!
    If I buy online I always keep copies of the relevant paperwork... 2 hours searching... no!
    My neighbour, who borrowed it once says 'you had a voucher when you bought it'... that hasn't helped!

    Local 'strange but good' Dyson repairman won't touch it so off to contact dyson!

    The Tesco.net email address service will be closed down on 27 June - if you've got one of these accounts you'll need to move to an alternative provider.
