    Gocat, log into Waities go to My Waities, and update marketing preferences.

    To receive myWaitrose vouchers-
    Within "My Account" and under "My Details", ensure the following
    - Your home address is correct within sections My Addresses and Payment Detail & Billing Information
    - Ensure you've set up your Marketing Preferences to "Yes please". Please note that following any changes, it can take up to 28 days for any vouchers to start coming through.
    - Continue to use your myWaitrose card every time you shop so that we can tailor vouchers to the things you enjoy.
    - myWaitrose vouchers can be sent to a different sample of customers for each promotion, depending on how you shop you may not receive vouchers for every promotion.

    Got 4 x 6 off wys 30 vouchers for waties

    Can somebody please remind me if I buy meat/fish in the 3 for 10 offer does the full price count towards my total or is it just the 10? I know this has been said many times, but I rarely go to Ws and I can't remember (or find the answer!).

    Plan to go to toon this week, using free bus pass
    Coffee and cake in John Lewis, visit bank, generally mouch around then back to the Waities beside the bus station, another coffee, paper, magazine and shopping to take me up to 30 then bus home.
    Originally posted by pippo

    Yes full price counts towards spend, eg 3 x waities essentials stewing beef, 4.40 each or 3 for 10, counts 13.20 towards your spend. 2.15 for a latte, new August mag just out 2 and sunday best day for cost of paper

    The Alpro was on offer at Waities, all cheaper than Asda, some from 97p to 1.??? until yesterday.

    The 3 for 3 offer started today. Possibly Asda's system has not caught up yet and is still using yesterday's prices, which were still around the 1 a carton mark

    Just corrected my typo, the stewing beef 4.40 each.

    Depends which Sunday paper you get, mail is 1.80, think couple of others dearer. As long as you hit 20 before any discounts, if you have the 4 off 20 S&S. If I am a few pence short I usually get few bananas and weigh and label them so I am sure I have spent enough
