    Unfortunately the scale on the SS till would not like the fact there was no yogurt in the bagging area.....like your thinking though marmite. There were no single christmas editions in my A today...I picked up a multi pack and it fell open so problem solved

    The thing I notice is the items that are returning N/A against M. I think Pringles Hot & Spicy (which they bought more of) is unfortunately the only Pringles 200g that M probably doesn't have. They have Cheesy Cheese that A doesn't seem to have (at least not online). I think they lost out on the Sugar Ring Donuts - they could have bought a bag of 6 at 50p in M.

    The CDM Caramel 200g appears not to be had by M (according to msm, price of 1.50 at competitors too much for me). However... is Cadbury DM Tiffin the ONLY 200g Cadbury product (ignoring an advent calendar) that isn't in the 2 for 3 at A? Many other versions are 2 and any 2 for 3 but that one is straight 2 online. Is this really the case - if it's on the mbuy, but somehow has been missed offline, probably by human beings that quite often do an incomplete job, then it could be full prices - by itself or, preferably, mixed and matched with one other version to get more items towards the 8 - vs 1.50 each at S. However maybe there is no need to scramble about trying to find any good items against S at the moment, as the Mullers, in effect, mean you can compare just one other good item you have against S. No need to have eight of your own anymore - just fill the rest of the shop with a variety of Muller Lights/Rice (one of them the Bakery version). Is the Tiffin really on the A mbuy?

    Another one I noticed - this was ages ago and appears to have remained the same online - Tic Tac Cherry Passion is the only Tic Tac at 60p individual in A that doesn't appear to be on the 2 for 1 offer. I've never tried it to find out - is this really the case, that it's the only one that isn't on the offer, or is it in fact on the 2 for 1? Second time of asking, months later. It will probably turn out it isn't on the offer, but there seems no harm checking whether it is. The CDM would seem better though, if online has missed off the offer on the one version.

    Did we find out if One Stop Shops are included in the Amex promotion?

    Wonder if anyone knows how much the 500ml Disarrono is in their stores

    Remember the 3.50 back on COS

    Ive had the skimmiest of skims

    Di and hg.....been thinking about both of you ........pippo too.

    Hoping Sal and marigold are popping in......a great time by the looks of it to take advantage of T lowering their prices.

    You are right mrsmac....we have been so spoilt of late. Thrilled to hear the news of your retirement by the way I hope we get a blow by blow account ( not literally I hope) of that last conversation with your boss

    JTS........mr hobknob......hope you are ok

    The problem with starting a list like this is the danger you miss out someone.....so forgive me if I have.

    Sue.....are you ok?
