    For AP 20 vouchers, I notice this on Las Iguanas ...

    https://www.iguanas.co.uk/shop

    Maybe not ideal, probably overpriced, and not sure if available in the restaurant, but a route to using them up to add to your meal? Using NUS you apparently get 40% off food, 25% off drinks - I have no idea whether that would work with this too but a discount meal out with a few sealed drinks to takeaway (potentially reduced) ...

    I went to Costalot this morning, got a coffee, toastie to cook later and a lemon muffin all free with 3x wontons.
    Points were not on my receipt, and they tried the excuse "It's because you paid with gift card" and "they will go on in next 24hrs", so I just left it and have emailed them.


    Didn't realise they were for 2.95 this week, so still have 1 left, so may go back for a 'medium' flat white

    I hate it that they never have the cheapest ones in store only on the website / charge more if they do have them. It used to be free delivery for a large spend on the website and if you google there is a freepost returns address - jobs a good un....

    Good morning all

    Permission to go AWOL for the week although I will drop by to browse

    We have two large suitcases and a bag of buckets and spades, plus food and towels for everyone and that's before we start on our own stuff

    A gliche in wine would be good as there is a Tesco nearby

    Di and all other members of the coven enjoy that meetup

    I met up with our very own BB last week twas lovely

    Take care and hugs to all my elite family

    Its useful to have previous receipts with you- I am going to dig mine out now incase I have the same issues as you

    I have just posted on the Charities Board, a post about a friends daughter, who has a brain tumour, she is desperately trying to raise money for her to have treatment, she has been to America and it is looking good that her brain tumour can be cured. NHS cant do anything more for her, as she has already had far too much radiotherapy and chemo. She is travelling to Poland every 2 weeks for some drug to be administered, as you can imagine the cost of this is rising.

    If anyone could donate, it would be very much appreciated.

    I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

    Her story is here:-

    Yes I always do that too - plastic card then Wonton gift cards.
    Its not the first time this has happened to me, had a few occasions in the past where the points havent gone on but m points card showing in the receipt. I think its to do with something they do on the till. Same has happened to me in Subway too.

    I always get a receipt in Costalot and Subway now.

    So I was going though the activity list on nectar yesterday and I remembered the last sainsburys local offer - use your card in Sainsburys local and get 200 points. I got M&Ms with OHs card and tea bags with mine
    These points went on automatically - I think this must have been the first time points have gone on without a nudge
    But the weekend I did these shops from Sainsburys I had another offer sent via email - buy M&Ms and get 100 points - I activated the offer and screen shot it and I just thought it would go on about the same time as the 200 point offer.
    It didn't so I messaged nectar via Fb as usual with the screen shot and all the usual ID needed - date, place of transaction, card number, DOB, email address etc, nice chat with my new best friend Gary and 100 points added on this morning
    - OK, its only 100 points but even so, OHs account was used to buy the new lawn mower so it will be a very long time before the total builds up again ...




    But on the plus side we did get the Sainsburys local 200 points on both cards - so I got OHs peanut m&ms on his card and red teabags on mine - and yes I have marked the google calender.
