    Does anyone else get a black box appear where the reciept picture is meant to be when trying to take a picture of a receipt on COS?

    I have to take about 10 pictures before it will actually show my receipt in the box. Just wondered if anyone knew why really

    some advice from the Waities shoppers please....

    my conditional spends include 10 wys 50 on wine,can I combine that with the conditional spend of 10 wys 50 which they have also sent....if you can I think it may be worth a visit.

    I've also got the normal 6 off 30 which seems to go well with 2 of the 15 meal deals so W may figure in my shopping this year.

    Hello everyone, hope you're all well. Just popping in about the Baileys offer at Mossies for 10 with it brand matching at To$co. I realise (according to a post on the dark side) that 1 or 2 bottles works fine.

    Has anyone bought more than 2 of them from To$co and have the brand match work? I'm 95% sure it should work but realise that there's a 2 per limit at Mossies so I was wondering whether the brand match system recognises this max 2 per transaction? I doubt it but thought I would ask just in case.

    I have a 10 off coupon wys 50 at To$co so was planning on purchasing 5 bottles from there plus fillers, total 60ish, minus 10 for brand match and then 10 off with voucher. If no reports then I will give it a go on Sunday/Monday.

    Hope you all have a great Christmas.

    Good morning beautiful people & merry Christmas!!

    I had a horrid experience with an apg from a cashier it was only 7 something and she was scrutinising the receipt saying how did you get 7 from this!! The lady behind was getting irate and she called over a supervisor who happily pricessed the apg. The cashier wanted to keep the receipt, she was not at all happy with me.

    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 doesnt really matter if you are returning it anyway .
