    Found some of these yesterday priced at 36p, then different store today found them priced at 1.82, went through the till at 91p.

    Strange how different stores have different prices.

    Does anyone know - with Amex Gold membership points, is the exchange rate different for buying Amazon giftcards rather than account top up? I have 47k of points, which I would think is 235 top up but the Amazon site is only showing 212?

    I need to cash out and cancel before renewal tomorrow .

    Many thanks

    After a further three mammograms plus an ultrasound this morning, the verdict was that I have a tiny (3mm) cyst. No further investigation required. Relief doesn't even begin to describe it. It's been a long two weeks but I'm so grateful that the NHS was able to identify and investigate something so tiny.
    Thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes xx

    Does everyone know that Aussie shampoos etc are on offer in Morrison's for 2 or in Superdrug for 2.07 - it was mentioned on the dark side last night

    I expect though that everyone has enough shampoo to wash the hair of a small village for a lifetime

    So I went into Superdrug today for a Aussie shampoo for coloured hair and presented it at the till alongside my blue NUS card which took 21p off.

    I also had the SSM printed off 1.50 coupon for any Aussie

    Final bill was 36p

    Be interested to hear what you come up with.

    As well as the post vouchers for 2 off 10 we am have some 2 off 10 till spits. Does anyone know if these can be used together and if so what the pre discounts spend needs to be? Ta

    weekend newspaper - Times or Telegraph we usually get
    latte worth 2.20 or suchlike
    2 magazine worth 4,
    plus between 2 and 4 of shopping depending on the npaper - if its Saturday or Sunday

    I still struggle to find things for 2 - usually its a cashback item

    coffee 2.10,


    That's 7.70/90...only 2.30 to "spend"


    then pick up a staple for 2.30, milk, fruit, porridge etc
    only 30p to pay

    I also did my Quidco magic bonus Marks orders - on my main account I had the automatic 20% off as I have over a zillion sparks points.

    I ordered my tights and it came down to 4.80 - 2 thick pairs which I will wear constantly, even under leggings (yes they do come off at night) for the next 7 month winter so very good value.

    Then I used OHs Q and the dormant sparks card account which had the 5 off bras activated offer - yes its peculiar - its a card that is somewhere hidden on my desk, no idea where. Or why this is the first offer.

    I also tried one of the 20% off paper codes they sent me in a mailing and oddly one of them worked so the 10 fasten- at- the front bra came down to 5 after the bra discount and then another 2 came off so I have a 3 bra

    OH still has 5 off formal shirts on his sparks - might use that one instore as I have a credit note expiring in December so it might as well be used up on something useful - and even better if a 20% off voucher works as well.
    The November expiring credit note I used up on a multipack of chicken and 2 packs of sausages as OH had a 2 off a 15 meat offer to be used instore - OK not the best saving but it used up the credit note and there is about 8 meals there and I only bought what I would have done anyway
    Also we have 1 hot chocolate offers on both sparks so that's tomorrow mornings entertainment - shirt shopping and hot chocolate drinking!

    I logged onto my coop app to update which local cause I donate to only to realise I'm signed up to digital coupons.

    It turns out I should be selecting 2 offers to load to my card eg 50p off milk, 50p off 4, etc

    That explains why none have been printing out for a while

    When the heck did I sign up to this and how did I forget ?!

    Wonder if it is a retirement thing, bra is not on so early in the morning so no need to take it off so soon in the evening!

    Locarr. Excellent shop. I am a bit envious. Nothing for me yesterday or today. I feel like I have missed out

    Matts wife. Hope you have seen someone about that eye condition and it clears up quickly
