    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

    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 ?!

    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

    2 - surely the cash out is to your nectar account where they can then be doubled up to be worth 470 - not too late, takes about 3 days to transfer them out to nectar

    I am now a little worried about you Anon....

    I am wasting money not switching broadband providers, I am just wondering if fiddling with affiliate links will let me get QC plus the cheaper monthly rate BT offer and higher value gift card and then of course pay 12 months up front to save another 12 quid and then hope for a get out of jail (contract) free price rise once the gift cards and cashback have been banked….

    Alternative option is to see if a new switch to 1 month notice SSE from my name into DWs name would trigger the 150 new customer QC.

    Valid points - I planned to recommend Mrs Anon then switch at 6 months and keep flipping, but got busy . I like your idea of switching spend after 3 months, I will investigate more, thank you. I need to investigate other cards in the stable - we already both have N3ctar, but could close one of those (after Shop M ) then return in 6 months too for another bonus by flipping.

    I had not spotted N3ctar was an option ... so thank you so much for highlighting this option , I have gone with that .

    I have 1k of double up vouchers to spend next week (so far ... - four lots from the same store with the same card) so now need to think about what I will get - I should really have thought about that before cashing out . We could potentially get another 800 ish too ... more if theAm3x come through before the end of next week . As they will apparently pro rata the annual fee, I may keep it running for a month to hit Shop Sm then close (though we have six other cards to use and if 1stop are not included again this year then I am not that bothered ).

    Many thanks

    I ventured in last night but unfortunately my nearest stores had no stock . I will no doubt be going again .

    Has anyone else noticed that A has rarely been mentioned in the past few weeks? Not even a normal deal to go for. . Sad times.
