    It was me yes well remembered



    I bought my dad that shirt last year but blue boats on white. He put it on as soon as I gave it him but it was never seen again after that day. I think nursing homes should be accountable for these things they charge enough. I also bought him a big book of cars of the decades which also went missing but their good news was they found it in time for my mum clearing his room after he had passed away..... please don't ask if I would recommend that home

    It is basically a GC for 2.45 to spend today only.
    20p off for using travel mug.
    What Costa sizes mean:
    http://www.plainenglish.co.uk/news/947-our-coffee-cup-overflows-with-jargon.htl


    Possible prices:
    https://uk.menuwithprice.com/costa-coffee-menu/


    So for hot drinks using own mug you get 2.65 value against what you buy.


    If you want anything else but more expensive, pay the difference.


    And no harm and trying 2 GCs at the same time, they can only say no.


    Watch out, I bought a coughee priced at 1.95 and the suspected manager serving me asked how much Wontwo voucher was for, I answered honestly "up to 2.45" .I watched the till display and the cheating so and so amended the price to 2.45 .
    If someone does that to me again I am going to ask for receipt to put the frighteners on them and maybe mumble "trading standards"

    I think I'm fully wired with coffee right now!

    I had 3 handsets so 3 codes, got a 'medium' flat white this morning, I always get a receipt, and when I looked they had put it through as cash, so still 2.45 on the Wonton code!

    I then went inside at lunch time and got a large latte, and a muffin, paid with Wonton.

    Then this afternoon used the last of the Wontons on a Med latte.

    Never drank so much coffee in one day lol.. buzzin

    They cost 1.55 so you could buy 2 for 3.10, use a 2.45 voucher, pay 65p and get 2.10 back.

    That's assuming you just have one costa voucher.

    Or, you could just buy one pack of biscuits and 2 lindt truffles at 45p each. Then you would have nothing to pay at all and could claim back 1.05

    I think the quality is much the same as Nicky, but theres slightly less on each roll.
    Im not good at maths not sure which works out better value, but since the Nicky price increase, think Ill stick to Little Duck.

    Zippy, had you ordered flowers from Waitrose florist before? I am wondering if this is why they confirmed one of my orders (strangely they had not wrote to say that they had cancelled my other orders).

    Remember the taste inc chicken fillets that cod were giving away free a while back? Well they!!!8217;re running Facebook and Twitter voucher giveaways (from email received today). Can!!!8217;t post linky but a quick search should find the correct account.

    Sadly its coming in the post so I don't think it will come in time to be of use for the COS offer.

    The moral of the tail though is even with insurmountable odds its still worth a go

    Has anyone any suggestions as to what I can add to the Waitrose list for this weekend

    Ideally
    things for cashback - free or almost free
    things I might find a coupon for - free or almost
    things that work out so cheap after cashback or MOC that if no one eats them they can go into the foodbank collection

    Just going to go through the MSE MOC list now in the hope of finding something I've not printed off.

    So far I've only got 3 things but no back up items
    Lurpak - for GJ as its then as cheap as own brand after cashbook
    Venus - my store apparently does sell them - MOC
    Laughing cow - for shopimumms
    (plus the usual latte, magazine, newspaper to get to a tenner)
