    Good morning everyone.

    Not sure if anyone has already posted re Waitrose vouchers. This morning I received 4 x save 4 when you spend 20 vouchers valid until 5 August. Nice easy spend.
    Hope that you all get some.

    Previously Groupon have tried to entice me with a code that would give 50% off - minimum of 20 spend - so 10 off 20 - and I always found it impossible to spend 20 - loads of nice meals deals but all just falling short of 20.
    I don't eat steak so that does not help and then there were Jamie Oliver meal deals but as its another company that is wobbling I didn't want to risk a voucher I could not use .

    So I just got the Madame Tussaud voucher for 1 this morning, much simpler.



    Received an email for a 5 Costalot for a 1 spend, bought a London Eye 1 deal which someone might want for free
    Not sure if everyone could use it.

    Hey there!
    We've noticed you've fallen out of touch with us recently. Here's something that might interest you, a complimentary 5 Costa e-gift card with your next purchase!
    All you need to do is purchase any Groupon deal worth 1 or more between now and Friday, July 13th, and enter the code 'XXXXXX' at checkout before completing your purchase.
    We will e-mail you a 5 Costa e-gift card next week - simple!




    The code is difficult unless you know what Costalot sell

    Today's offer is the normal suspects for 3 main meal.
    Friday is Costalot free drink day, which is normally just a gift code for 2.45 valid for that day only. I have combined to get a drink and a treat before, depends on outlet.


    Verging Reed has 2000 free pizza today, available at a random time, so down to luck.

    From someone who finds very few wombles or decent whoopsies, I have been quite happy going to my local Aldi stores (three or four nearby) first thing in the morning. It's hit and miss of course what is reduced, but there are always some 50% reductions in the salad/veg, chilled and bread. I noticed yesterday in one store they even have a few in the freezer.

    I also like Lidl, whilst stuff only reduced 30% off original price, they always have the next day's date on them, and some even a few days. I got two carrot cakes before my hols with three days left on them

    We are very lucky here We have asda, sains, morries , lidl and aldi and all with 10 mins

    Tesco is a bit further away but only 5 mins from DS so we plan our visits carefully

    I have been lucky with morries whoopsies recently but I keep seeing people with better reductions than me

    Hope the reductions continue

    Received a letter a few days ago from a firm called Equiniti regarding an unclaimed payment in relation to Froiends Provident.
    Well being such a 'trusting' person I've spent 20 mins or so googling, checking them out with FCA and on this site. I then rang their freephone number. Answered quickly and within 2 mins after I confirmed my address (That was all the info they wanted) I was told a cheque will be with me within 5 days.

    What a shame it is only for 5.30...

    I went to Gweggs at lunchtime today to pick up my free salad after 'buying' a Ribena there the other day (using AP vouchers). My code wouldn't scan for some reason, so they just gave it to me. So I still have my code. This isn't helping my use up my AP vouchers, but I'm certainly not complaining!

    Hi all back from my holidays and with a question. I picked up one of the floral cabin bags from Aldi in May I think and used it on my hols. At the airport the zip burst open as the two ends of the zip had not been joined IYKWIM. Is there anywhere I can view the special buys for the week of the suitcases as I cant find the receipt. I'll need the price so I can trawl through the credit card account to find proof of postage. Cheers.
