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

    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.

    You just need to have bought 8 or more different items from ASDA, of which at least 1 must be comparable to an equivalent item sold by a Competitor. Then, if the total cost of the comparable items in your shopping isn't 10% cheaper at ASDA, we'll give you the difference via a voucher.
    You need to buy at least 8 different items that show on the APG Picasso (that includes n/a's so you have 10 items showing)

    Only 1 of your items need to be "comparable" to get an APG

    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

    Does it say "as you requested" or "as requested"?

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

    We have cancelled your order as requested.

    Apparently they have cancelled all orders, according to Waitrose Customer Care.

    I notice there is a 5 bonus when you spend 20 on Q if you are a Premium member (I have anyway, assuming it is not just me ). You need to pot in before buying by midnight Friday from a selection of companies.

    Must admit I did notice while I was on the phone on the checkout screen there was an option to remove the 20% off. I had missed it before but I bet the 5 offer would have auto added if I had removed it. One to remember for next time...

    Now the question is I wonder if my paper birthday voucher will work in store now. And I guess my 5 off will still be there.

    Thanks for mentioning to contact them. I've ended up only paying 60p for the leggings I think.

    I have tried ringing them before but I just got into a circular conversation which came down to just that 20% or 5 but not both.

    I am at a bigger M&S this week so I am hoping they have the same leggings online - it makes more sense to use a credit note to pay the balance rather than doing an online order and using real money.

    I would have been happy with just the fiver off the leggings as that was the best discount but I just couldn't find a way to use it on it's own which was what was what I was trying to ask them. In my playing around I had left something else in my basket so in the end I have got a good deal today.

    If it ever happens again I must remember to try and see if removing the lesser discount at the checkout page will work. Someone might have to remind me though as I will probably come on here to moan first.

    That's funny, I have always thought of you as the cheese
    connoisseur on here!

    Have to admit we are slacking, we only have 5 different cheeses in the cheese box at the moment

    We do spend a bit of time slicing off bloom or mould, can never understand why people throw away mouldy cheese. Nearly lynched DD one time when we went on holiday and she decided to get rid of some out of date cheese from the fridge, I had been storing some nice brie that was just getting ripe, it was 3 months out of date and she chucked it out We never eat brie in date

    One thing we have sitting there and have not tried yet though, a truckle of wensleydale with chocolate and orange, should be interesting.

Our stack is sadly depleted as DH aka Grumpy Knickers, has taken to providing 'snacks' when he and his friends go to the micro pub in the next village, he has used up the real french pre Christmas Roquefort that wasn't even runny yet and the post Christmas Stilton.

    I will rephrase 'he and his friends go' in reality I take them and pick them up 2 hours later, they are all deaf and only Grumps wears his hearing aids, the conversations are unreal at times!! MY BF calls it my second voluntary job, 'P P P Pick up a Pensioner'!
