    Why watch out...? So long as they process our order why should we care what price they put in the till? The voucher is dead whether 2.45 is used or not (and the tills recently changed which means they can no longer tell).

    Now the Co-op are trying it out when its failed for everyone else

    https://joinin.coop.co.uk/opportunities/136

    It didn't work for sainsburys - they closed down mysainsburys that gave you about 50 items to choose from but never anything that anyone would normally buy.

    It never worked for Mr T - in the olden days when coupons arrived with the quarterly statement you got points and MOCs for things you bought 18 months or 2 years beforehand - usually things that had coupons at the time ... but it was supposed to reflect things you bought currently but it didn't. And its now years since I had a mailing MOC

    It didn't work for Waitrose who shut down their app based pick your own offers system because they said no one used it and instead they were going to issue MOCs in the post ... except that hasn't happened either, very few of us have had any Waitrose mailings for months ...

    I wont be signing up for the Co-op trial - I like the old fashioned thrill of getting an MOC at the till

    I looked on Tesco.com and mysupermarket and I cant find them anymore. I wonder if they have given up with them and are now going to use us to get rid of the last of the stock

    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)

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    I did a few orders, received confirmation, but then only one e-mail to say that they would honour the order - I have no idea which order - planned to be delivered from tomorrow until the 15th June! An e-mail the night before will let me know when to stay in!

    Thank you - I was misinformed and the change seems to now be in our favour then. The change on the till just now was they have to put in the amount to come off the giftcard, rather than how much is available on it. Whichever way it is working it is the opposite of what it used to be as they had issues again .

    That said, they stack no problem as I did a drinks run for "a few" and they told me to put them through together rather than faffing about as separate transactions .

    They obviously hadn't read the one per user statement on the app .
