    what annoys me about COS is that we never actually know if a one day offer is actually a one day offer.
    eg the squash was a one day offer that went live late on Tuesday afternoon, inevitably after I'd been to Mr T in the morning
    Then on Wednesday it was a one day offer again

    Also some offers are just on COS but not always on Q clicksnappy so I check COS several times a day to see if the little number at the top has changed but then forget to check Q to see if the offers are matching.

    Thanks inna I can see both offers when I click through, wonder if the free offer will still be ok if only bought today though.

    Have been trying to do an approved food order but I didn't realise they were on tv this morning so the site crashed and I wasn't logged in so I have lost the organic tea bags I had in my basket.

    Really struggling to find a whole shop this time as no ground coffee in stock at all I might have to give it a miss today. I want to keep to stuff we need not that we might use in the distant future.

    They can be a bit flakey - it may disappear from offers but still be available to claim when they are near the budget for the promotion (so they explained a while ago - it means those who have bought can still claim, and dissuades other less persistent shoppers from buying them, but if you can see them to claim them you can buy them, as we know ). They may also withdraw an offer early if they have processed claims up to the budget (understandable really from a business perspective so they don't overspend, but it is annoying if it disappears early when you planned to go later/another day!).

    Note the Tetley juice offer today has changed to claim one free (from claim two free, which was the previous offer).

    A nickname will be fine - I used to be known as PK when I frequented this thread a few years ago but we can't have 2 PK's

    Waitrose email states we have cancelled your order as requested.....

    I didn't request it!

    Because it was probably requested by someone in the business therefore, technically, correct

    Even if it seems like the offers are now for 2 weeks its still worth checking your marks Sparks accounts this morning for new offers.

    I've got an additional 5 off trousers and leggings. This seems to include the cropped leggings version which brings them down to 2.50 Or the basic leggings down to 4.50

    Its appeared on 2 of my cards - the most used one which I have bought jeans and leggings with fairly recently and also the hardly ever back up card

    Ggrrrrr, COS really makes me mad. Clipper tea, which I drink loads of, was free and last night and had 1 day left. This morning......gone!
    Yet other stuff seems to have a countdown with hours left showing. Can anybody explain why this is? Thanks.

    Utility point
    Hi

    I'm looking to transfer my electric to utility point this afternoon. There are some referral codes if I search online but I'd rather it went to one of the elite.

    Anyone have any dealings with them?

    Hello everyone. No time to catch up but thought I'd post the yoghurt results from this morning in case it helps anyone. AvS

    1x Muller Light Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    4x Muller Corner Red Cherry Yogurt (150g) 2.72 2.00
    2x Muller Light Fat Free Orange with Dark Chocolate Yogurt (165g) 1.36 0.70
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Vanilla & Dark Chocolate Yogurt (165g) 0.68 0.35
    0.1x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Parsnips (order by number of parsnips or select kg) (per kg) 0.11 0.13
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Strawberry Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    0.08x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Onion (order by number of onions or select kg) (per kg) 0.06 0.06
    0.16x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) 0.08 0.09
    0.17x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) 0.13 N/A
    1x ASDA 50% Less Fat Creamy Coleslaw (600g) 1.00 N/A
    Comparison total (compared products only) 6.37 4.03

    Almost missed out on the 8 items as the loose banana and the coleslaw didn't count as the comparison so it only compared 8 different items. It's the first time I've needed the two extra items I always add to a shop. I bought the bakewell yoghurt as the trigger and didn't count that as I knew it wouldn't show on the APG.

    APG was for 2.75 so the yoghurts cost me 25p! Wasn't sure about some of the flavours so shifted to corners.
