    I would probably forget to even take it with me to do that. It is good to see everyone getting their bargains before xmas. I don't need anything, xmas shopping was done in the January sales but maybe I should start for next year.

    they are holding the transaction over...they know all about small shops and the promotion and have done similar in previous years....they are grateful of the increased business it generates.
    Thats why they were happy to take the details of both cards and put them through tomorrow.

    It also means I have my order placed and they can start preparing for what is a busy time for them.

    Was thinking this morning would I be the only one on a list of not having done an APG for the gift sets.

    Just can't get my head around it, been far too long since I did one, and my track record of forgetting to use the bloomin voucher is putting me off...

    we have a local shop that is on the list who takes christmas orders and participates every year in small shops,this year they realised that in order for customers to take full benefit in the promotion they would take details and process once small shops started....

    hence me being able to place my order over 2 cards this morning.

    The shop does very well out of small shops and as a result gets lots of repeat custom through the year,well I do anyway...
    but this year the cut off for their christmas orders was 1st Dec...hence holding the transactions until tomorrow but still being able to place the christmas order....

    Hopefully thats clear now and apologies if I sent everyone into thinking it officially started today.

    other than that shop...I've very little else planned this year small shop wise.
    frugal October...41.82 of 40 food shopping spend for the 2 of us!
