    I have sent an email to Wilco explaining that I need them to scan it as having been picked up because of the cashback site. They also said I presumed they knew I picked it up because they havent refunded my money! I also raised a Quidco support ticket telling them that I had done the right thing and asking them to pay the bonuses. It would be great if you get both those things to so that they know it isnt just me! I dont know if it will help but at least we have done something.

    Edit: Apologies to the others who have replied. I have been catching up on the phone and its not so easy to multi quote. Could we all do these things please in the hope that it might achieve something? But I agree that we should probably stop using Wilco!

    I thought I would finish up the mince pies.



    What I didn't realise was that they were dated January 2017.

    Evening all!

    I went to T's earlier and picked up a 'few' more mags. There are quite a few coupons in there, but I haven't had a chance to look up prices. I noticed there is a Dr Oetker coupon for 75p off icing so could be good combined with the 1 Dr Oetker coupon that got posted on here last week (I think it was). On the RTC shelf they had big 3 litre bottles of orange squash reduced to 54p and Schwarz packet spice mixes for 20p,

    There are 2 more boxes but I think they are from this year. They are the cheaper packaging. Probably got more preservatives in.

    Oh and a box of stollen slices.

    I reckon they were opened before last xmas.

    Well I am still here, I actually ate one yesterday.

    I did check it over and open it up to make sure there was nothing growing inside...it wasn't a pie when I had finished more like a crumble.

    I only got a nectar card this year so I'm a bit late to the party. With the 'double up' as I understand it you have to pick a category and you get a voucher. If, for example, I use it to buy some clothes and it turns out they don't fit....can you still get a refund even though you used the voucher, and in what form do you get the refund?

    Thanks!
