    I'm really struggling to know what to buy to get the 2.50 Quidco bonus by the end of today. I have toilet rolls coming out of my ears (Wilkies/SD) and Dry Shampoo (SD). I'd like a sturdy clear 1litre bag for cabin luggage liquids but can't seem to find any quidco retailers selling any good ones!!!!

    Bought these because of TM's recommendation

    10p a bag



    But now I home I've remembered it's Jakemans that TM recommends.

    Were Ricolas some other glitch in years gone? I have no idea what they are like, DM think I should have got my mantra card out.

    Didn't see anything reduced in our SD, but didn't look in the sweet section.

    Afternoon peeps.

    Thought I'd get 3 each of the 2 pink gallos on way past S for COS.
    Read the sign which said 25% off 5.25 or more wines, however just looked at my receipt and the discount has been applied to some 2+ wines I have bought as well!

    So think the 25% is all wines even the cheaper ones???
    Can anyone else confirm before tomorrow please?

    However, I'm more intrigued as to which wines you bought for 2?!

    Me too.

    I wondered if it was the tiny bottles. The 187ml ones?
    EDIT: Just checked online and they don't show in the 25% off offer so ignore me...

    Also wonder if it makes a difference if you have bought more expensive wines it can't distinguish in the shop to not include cheaper bottles?

    I also checked marks sparks as the offers renewed overnight.

    The new offers are valid for 2 weeks - maybe other new things will pop up in the meantime.

    OH has the biggest choice and his include buy iced drinks in the caf! for half price - I suppose its not a bad offer if your marks caf! is closer and/or you have no Neros - 00002 have a BOGOF offer on iced drinks in Nero

    The emergency card only allows one offer to choose from but much worse, my main card where most of the sparks points are and the back up card with less than a thousand, both have 5 off 35 online food order - that's it, no bonus offers, no 20% off a choice of 4 various clothing departments. Just the one offer

    The overpriced dine in offer for 12 instead of 10 (fewer meal choices) is still on until July 17th so its something else I wont be buying in Marks.

    My local only really had the chipotle mayo, and one lonely hot salsa mixed in with the medium that were still full price. Just gaps where any kits or wraps would have been 20p.

    I stopped at a Sainsbury local on my way to the biggest store. Nothing in the local.

    The latin America mixes were on the bottom shelf don't think anyone had spotted them, just those 3 flavours, other flavours were up higher again still full price. I just hit lucky I think. They do look rather tasty.

    Nothing mega exciting!

    There were a few reduced wines on an end aisle , mostly expensive ones.
    Last week I bought just one bottle of Lambrusco Bianco light only 4% but a nice summer drink, liked it so thought I'd get more if they still had it. Today reduced to 2.20 then 55p discount.

    So maybe all 75cl bottles are 25% off regardless of price?

    I will actually save money with getting the chipotle mayos as Mr TS usually uses plain mayo and mixes his own chipotle paste with it which isn't cheap.

    Trouble is I still do have some black pepper and lemon mayos from ages ago when they were 20p, must be about 5 years old now. At the time I thought they were a great idea and buy but DD will only eat the plain stuff and I don't use often enough. Mr TS forgets and usually just uses the plain and adds his own flavour to make his own concoctions...

    Thanks for the salsa/powder info, just got 4 worth of assorted dressings and spices.

    Also 20p.
    Kettle Crisps, discoveries, Yorkshire wensleydale & Cox apple chutney flavour! 130g bag.
    Only 3 bags left I my store so cleared the shelf.

    Can confirm that conditional spends can be used on wine as well.

    It might have something to do with the ABV %. I think the law on minimum pricing is connected to that. So with it being only 4% it probably still qualifies for the discount. I'm sure someone will understand how the minimum price per unit/bottle works better than me.
