    Excellent. I am just trying to install android pay. Give me a full review when you get back please.
    Read T&C, and it does look like we have to wait for 30 days BEFORE claiming for the cashback.
    After cashback, and selling the phone, there is about 30 profit, should have bought 3

    If you have the phones available though it could be a reasonable profit even if just trading in to CEX .

    Vs S
    1x ASDA Macaroni Cheese (395g) 0.45 0.39

    EDIT: Careful - Macaroni Cheese (400g) now saying 55p on sains.co.uk - I thought they were cheaper before but had gone up, interested to see them comparing against 39p but it looks like this will only work until the system updates at 6am, so it needs shopping overnight this morning - it seems S has gone back up again. EDIT 2: Maybe a little longer - competitors' prices are normally obtained "by midday". I think forget it to be honest - hope S goes back to lower price again soon.

    No use buying SP Chocolate Chip Cookies against M right now and hoping for a weight adjustment price:
    1x ASDA Smart Price Chocolate Chip Cookies (250g) 0.40 N/A

    They are comparing vs straight 40p at T:
    1x ASDA Smart Price Chocolate Chip Cookies (250g) 0.40 0.40

    Obviously avoid Sains. on that one as it is the worst comp.

    How did you manage 10 shops, did you just take 10 items to the self checkout, or in and out of store?

    It was straightforward enough once I got it working (and quiet at this time of night, so no chuntering from others while holding the queue up ).

    Mullers still working.

    9 items on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda sainsbury's
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Toffee Yogurt (1x175g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Banana & Custard Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Rice Strawberry Low Fat Dessert (1x180g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Vanilla & Dark Chocolate Yogurt (165g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Strawberry Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Rice Apple Low Fat Dessert (1x180g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Rice Original Low Fat Dessert (1x180g) 0.68 0.35
    1x Muller Rice Vanilla Custard Low Fat Dessert (1x180g) 0.68 0.35
    Comparison total (compared products only) 6.12 3.15
    +2.97 cheaper

    I understand the offer is supposed to be on in S until 12th December. So, it should continue to work as long as the Christmas Bakery stays off. I was just buying a non-grocery item on its own shop, but I figured that it was best to add a 3 APG onto the shop and turn it into 3.29. Not too happy about the Vanilla Chocolate Sprinkles though - 10g lower weight? I've been shortchanged! I did leave that off a shop some days ago. There was limited choice of other ones (that compare against S 35p) in my store anyway - not that they are OOS, I think they just don't have them in that store - so I bought the Chocolate Sprinkles as one of my ten - I suppose we will still need that variety at some time and I guess we eat one yogurt at a time and the lack of 10g isn't going to make us consume an extra one. They consume another of the other ones as it is; as shown by having to buy them again now. And they particularly like the Bakery with Gingerbread Men so they always need that one buying again.

    And who said anything about spending 20p - bananas are only 11p or so .

    BH I have found it seems to be a rolling 24hr period. What time was your first shop yesterday? Should work then.

    Yes, I think it might be later than 6am as well. I haven't worked out when the cut off is, but I think it's fine after 8am - perhaps they go by EST.

    edit : I guess pacifica9's explanation would account for me too.

    Hi MrsMac, sorry you're having a rough time at work but it's great you are able to call the shots.
    I live on the opposite of Glasgow from you so maybe once you're free we can meet up. I'm about the same age, retired but no state pension yet

    Hope you can last for the next 2 weeks!!

    Good morning all. Off to get ready for work. Need to break the news to two special friends in work.

    Then its making notes for whoever gets the job plus of course finding out the answers to questions raised by That boss. (Thanks Snap) I am not actually working my notice. I imagine Gp will supply fit note as I am never away from there just now.

    But I feel lighter.

    Enjoy your day
