    From Womble dated yesterday v Morries

    1x ASDA Iced Donuts (12pk) 2.00 1.00
    Originally posted by LANGO1966
    I wondered why these have gone up in price. It seems they haven't though and msm is suggesting 2 for A's item is 3% below average. Almost the last items I looked at yesterday were some 12 pack fairy cakes for A. M is 1 on its versions of those but I found A to be 75p so more than 10% cheaper and avoid vs M. 12 pack Fairy Cakes bought without comparing against M in A would therefore be cheaper than 90p - it seems A has not put its price up on the Iced Donuts but is just really much much more expensive on them than M.

    I will add the Donuts to the list as they are not the Fairy Cakes even though they work out more expensive price than them. I am still adding a few more items this evening, not due to having lots but because I am going incredibly slowly or not bothering to do the updating at all. Tomorrow should not be much - although I won't have full look at everything as not travelling out to stores. Later in the week will be bad - it looks like there are lots of items due to expire on Tuesday and it is also a bad day as I have other things planned for Wednesday. I suspect it will just mean my first store takes up all the allotted time I have for it and then the second takes all its time too rather than leaving me with spare time around them.

    Ah, thanks. Was about to order some free sims so won't wast my time with that.

    I decided to get some sims with 10 credit included as they are < 10. 7.69 with prime delivery or you can get them for 7 on fleabay.

    ..or if they will tell you to 'renew' your code every so often?

    Did we know BHS was still going online?

    https://www.bhs.com/

    There's a code for BOGOFF to be used today. Works on sale stuff too.

    Stuff doesn't seem cheap but you may find a bargain.

    Just worked for me on wine glasses. Remember to put 2 in your basket.

    There's other discounts but I haven't tried stacking

    I'll put the code on the code thread

    Not sure I follow but I think you'll only be able to have the app working on one phone at any time as it goes back to the number used to activate it. i.e. If I activate the app on my iphone and then try and activate on my samsung the iphone app is likely to stop working. I'll soon find out

    There are convoluted ways of getting some money back from sim credit but I usually just donate to charity via text.

    Won't work with same sim card, as it is specific to telephone number on sim, NOT the actual phone number you are using. I am sure there are plenty of instructions on how to use on a non O2 phone, it is just needing credit on the actual sim that has changed and the usage.

    what a result.

    i had a 50 voucher through the post from haven. apologising for the bad weather on my break with them a month or so ago. (weather was not too bad)

    the holiday i took was a sun newspaper holiday so did not cost a lot anyway.
    i read the t&c a few times and it says on any holiday with them, also can be combined with other offers. as long as there is 50 at least to pay.

    so i wondered if i could use it on another sun newspaper holiday. i live chatted them and they confirmed i could. so after i paid the sun paper 38 i recon i can get a holiday break for practically no more to pay.
    off course i have taken a screen shot of my live chat.


    but it will be extremely hard going to haven without my beloved dog, which we took her with us there for 18 years.
