    Am I the only one not even trying to get that McMuffin. I know it's free, but it does not sound pleasant.

    Of course!

    Does anyone remember James Wellbeloved 2 money off coupons for 1.5kg or 2kg bags of complete cat or dog food - maybe a freebie website somewhere????

    I got a MOC in the post today - - yes rarer than hens teeth now and it was from Valiss with this coupon.

    Underneath it says "Replacement Times online voucher with our compliments"

    But I don't have access to The Times online - I did a long while ago but that was donkeys years. And MOCs are so rare now if one was coming in the post you would be expecting it, not something you would forget

    I was doing a bit of research ahead of buying dry cat food via Amazon yesterday - working out the cost per KG and trying to make a decision between Harringtons and Burgess or heading my bets and getting both.

    Mind you its gobsmacking expensive - just seen how much it is at pets at Home. Might put it on the local freebie FB page

    Good morning lovely peoples

    Sorry I forgot who was asking some time ago about paint for fencing.

    I'm off to Poundstretcher who have Ronseal Fence Paint in various colours 3.99 for 5L

    Seems a good deal

    That Saturday afternoon a couple of weekends ago when our local neros ran out of ice as I got to the till so we couldn't get our BOGOF iced drinks .
    I had a free coffee on the app as a result of the fathers day app. It was expiring at the end of June so we had that instead - the assistant said we could have a hot chocolate .
    But the hot chocolate we got was not up to the usual standard - I know I should have said something at the time but I was hot, sweaty and annoyed and didn't.
    Instead I sent them a message via FB with a picture, pressed send and then immediately regretted complaining.
    Then last week I got a message from them asking for more details and today 4 coffee vouchers arrived, valid until the end of December - these are equivalent to the loyalty cards so I think they are valid for the large sized ones


    Our Neros ran out of ice on Saturday
    We went in for 2 of the iced drinks as per the 0002 BOGOF offer - at least 3.95 was saved so at least that's something

    My Android phone wouldnt work I scanned the QR but it just kept giving an error - again, SA was helpful and gave the muffin anyway.

    One for me and one for my mate (when questioned).

Try places like mytyres, camskill and oponeo (some of these, you can also opt for a delivery to a local tyre fitter with a price quoted for fitting). Also worth checking out Asda tyres and Black Circle for fitted prices if they do your area, and costco if you are a member.
