    If anyone has any amendments to make to my M lists... go away. No, please do tell me, and I will update them as soon as I can. (They will just get added to the things to do and be done in order until they are all done - not a problem to me.)

    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

    Hooch drinks too
    Originally posted by TrulyMadly
    Maybe talking at cross-purposes but...

    Hooch drinks did have (probably still have, I'll trying to catch up with this as well now) 1 COS - they were 1.50 in M but have now, it seems, gone up to 1.67 - so, not as good as they were (assuming COS still to be on). I will remove them from my list.

    I have some Disarrono to add - calm down, folks, I still haven't removed the expired from my list yet. I will have a look at the Disarrono - I have now brought it forward to look at sooner, probably wrong size though. Yes, it's not the same size as what you are asking - I can see it immediately on the page I happen to have in front of me - I have Disarrono Sour 95cl at 5. Fwiw, possibly - still to go through the check to see if that is good enough to get to the M list. Maybe no good - sometimes I take an offer price that I think is good, only to find it is still twice as costly as somewhere else - that may be because of a high what is called "reference price", crossed out price that is there on the SEL, that makes it look good and I don't always know instore so I take it anyway but the good thing is it is then checked against elsewhere. If anywhere else is cheaper on msm, or pricerunner for non-grocery items that I have no clue what good prices are (they are quick checks though and can't be guaranteed to pick everything up - given the amount of items I have), then it does not get to the list. I do go beyond those checks occasionally, but obviously I have limited time so am unable to check every possible avenue, as all of us are in the same situation there. The Disarrono might not be a great reduction, but a reduction nonetheless and I will try to check to see if I can see if it's been cheaper before.

    If you have 500ml with CB, obviously that may or may not work out cheaper. Thanks for telling us.

    I have been taking the p ... ounds out of my S N3ctar purchases by returning my ill fitting electricals and other items. The pattern has held true, where over 40 items they have been returned to the (... a ... payment card, apart from one return that they insisted had to be on a GC, and 40 transactions refunded on GC, apart from one paid in cash .

    Just a few more to go.

    Lessons learnt for next time? Buy items over 40 to increase the chance of a cash/payment card return, see what is available in different stores (the smaller the better ) to increase the stores for returns - and buy items from different categories as it doesn!!!8217;t really matter if you are returning it anyway .

(In fact, it's not the fault of stores - it turns out, according to what you are telling me, that my SELs of straight 1.50 are totally correct - they don't need to be clarifying anything or giving any further information as saying 1.50 is their actual price and there's no offer on them to show. Indeed, it would be incorrect to show one. The problem is that, seeing straight 1.50 makes me wonder whether they really are that or whether there is an offer on them that isn't displayed. Therefore, in that sense, I was implying that the move to straight 1.50 (they had showed the offer in my store before) meant they actually were that and that the offer on them had "probably" ended (note that "probably" on them at that stage, as I could never be sure!). It turns out, according to what you say, that my reading of the SELs and my implying that the offer had probably ended on them was correct - they will disappear now from the M list. We had a good run on them though didn't we, so can't really complain. Hope everyone got what they wanted of them. And it means the offer has moved onto other things now, that are very very good indeed.)

    Went for free proppercorn this evening but not stocked in our store - perhaps licky as my apgs were 20 and 23 without the extra 5.40 quid if they had had them....

    Apparently 1L Baileys is to be 10 in A as well this weekend:

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/1l-baileys-10-this-weekend-only-at-asda-2844824

    May be a good way of spending outright one of those 20 APGs and, for some, this could well now be better than paying 10 real cash in M. Personally I wouldn't even attempt Avs M at 10 to try for 9 net as I doubt you will get it - bound to lose out vs everywhere I feel and probably will put paid to some wombles as well. If anyone does want to try one with some cheap fillers and not expect any APG back but just to see if M at 10 is picked up and prove me wrong...
