    My Boots app has updated overnight - not that very exciting.
    I have 75 points for a shampoo or conditioner so thats one of Boots own brand.
    1 off Botanics - what is the cheapest? Possibly wipes?

    Also 200 points for buying 8 of cosmetics - there were some good No 7 offers and Max Factor bundles a few weeks back. Mind you all I really need is foundation or BB creams and eye liners.
    There is so little no 17 stock left now it would be hard to get 8 worth.
    Any suggestions welcome

    Also got extra points for a 15 spend - with shampoo, cosmetics and botanics I would be over a tenner ...

    Oops forgot to mention earlier, popped in boots last weekend for the B+H( Sounds like im buying cigarettes I always use to think the same with the big glitch at xmas time)
    I got a free one and DD had 100 points, but the points didn't show on the receipt so the sa manually put them on, therefore the b+h offer was still active...
    that particular b closes at 8pm so a quick detour on my wat back from London yesterday yielded the correct pink free one and my dil also had the offer on her app ..so clean hands all round

    The doughnut and the cherry bakewell are one of the same, in that both pots have the same barcode.

    Up until yesterday it was appearing on the APG and giving a comparison.

    Yesterday it stopped appearing on the APG, so if you have 9 other different mullers, they still compared 68p v 35p (lights) to sainsbobs, or 68p v 50p (corners and rice) to sainsbobs

    Good Morning Llovelies


    Loving the little cat chair

    Calmer today as at last managed to find out how to change passwords on the Verified By Visa thing that pops up

    I now have an idea how they got my not guessable password as I stupidly used it on another account that I recently set up a DD with them...

    So today is lighter in mood

    Ooops, at least you may have solved that one, hope things are progressing with getting the money back.

    I use a rotation of passwords on non-money accounts, but my accounts that involve money are all different and all (I hope) unguessable. I actually got a friend to try and guess one of them one time, after an hour he gave up. I always use at least one punctuation mark in the ones that are important, and creates a lot more possibilities.
