    I bought 4 curly wurlys & a Cadbury chomp. Labels all indicated they were in the 5 for 1 deal. Was I wrong please?

    If the mbuy hasn't come off, you are very right as you should have a 2 GC. (Difficulty may be if the offer really has ended today or is ending soon, slowly reaching different stores over the next 24 hours, that the mbuy labelling may be pulled off and not be on the shelving when you next visit for the GC - unless they just take your word, how can you show that the mbuy was on display when you bought the items?)

    Thanks savvy.

    I mixed my soup shop as got excited to see French Onion my favourite and don't see it very often.

    A lovely French Onion Soup recipe would be welcome from the cooks please?

    Off to get a glass of something nice.

    Add you own homemade chicken stock...Probably not the norm but very tasty together with a few sprigs of Thyme and a bay leaf....

    Cook over a medium heat bringing it to a simmer...Simmer for 20 minutes before pouring into oven
    proof dishes....Having seasoned to taste with salt and pepper and discarding the bay leaf and Thyme stalk....

    Using a nice rustic bread...buttered and rubbed with garlic...Pour some of the onion liquid into an oven proof dish...place some of the bread on top...some gruyerre cheese...more liquid and topped with more bread and cheese....Place in an oven to melt the cheese to a golden brown...

    Serve and go to heaven....

    Just realised A didn't pick up the 5 sweets for 1 on my receipt. I might try for a 2 gc as overcharged if they don't scribble on my receipt which I'm sure they will.

    The glitter ball is comparing to T's 5.62 now.

    14 items (9 different) on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda tesco
    3x Impulse Glitter Ball Body Fragrance Gift Set (each) 30.00 16.86
    1x Wham Raspberry Flavoured Bar (16g) 0.10 N/A
    1x Maoam Giant Strawberry Stripes (1pk) 0.10 0.10
    1x Haribo Starmix (1pk) 0.10 0.10
    1x Swizzels Refreshers Original Lemon Flavour (18g) 0.10 0.10
    4x Cadbury Curly Wurly Bar (26g) 1.40 1.20
    1x McCoy's Mighty Meaty Ridge Cut Potato Crisps Variety Pack (6x27g) 1.45 1.00
    1x Jacob's Mini Cheddars Crispy Thins Toasted Cheddar 7 Pack (7x23g) 1.65 1.00
    1x Barratt Flumps (12g) 0.10 0.10
    0.18x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) 0.14 0.13
    Comparison total (compared products only) 35.04 20.59
    +14.45 cheaper

    Or, given the correspondence that has now passed between us (in effect), am I misunderstanding? When you say "on my receipt" do you mean physically on your till receipt so that you actually paid (by whatever method of payment) 1.40 plus the cost of the Chomp on your shop in the first place? Or, by "on my receipt" do you mean your receipt comparison, that you have posted, is showing full price (maybe you were unaware that the Chomp is currently part of a glitch?)?

    Otherwise I am confused. I don't know why the mbuy didn't come off at the till/SS if that has happened. Perhaps a store specific thing? Small supermarket, different prices? I don't know.

    Aha - two versions of the Chomp! It's me that is wrong - buying the wrong Chomp (that doesn't give a potential 2 GC claim). Unless it is really a completely different size of Chomp that is so massively different that no-one reasonably could fit it within the description on the SEL.

    Probably someone has picked up a Chomp from elsewhere in the store and then put it back with the different size Chomps in the 5 for 1 shelving. Or are they both the same weight (23.5g)?

    Seems to give us three triggers (except one isn't even in the offer but is also a no-show): Chomp (my BC), Chomp (your BC) and Buttons.

    I've been caught out by this before - two different pack sizes of Hula Hoops, within a fraction of a gram difference per pack, several years ago: mine was an invisible one - would have been much better to have bought the other pack that appeared and compared everything, including itself, from full price.
