    Evening luvlies

    Had all the decs down from the loft today so theyre ready to put up first thing tomorrow. The tree usually takes me an hour, hoping to write the cards out after.

    Really enjoying reading of peeps wins on AP. I have an iPhone but DD2 recently upgraded her phone and said I could have her old android . She just needs to wipe it first then shell drop it round for me

    Thought Id mention this for ebayers, I sold something yesterday morning on eBay, quite high value, and it was collection only and my preferred payment method was cash. I received an automatic email from eBay stating I will be sending payment of ...... shortly for eBay item ..... then further down in the email it said via cash on collection. The buyer dropped me a message to make arrangements re collecting the item and I gave him my phone number.

    Last night I received a second email from eBay subject heading, congratulations your item has been sold and paid for. I thought oh well, PayPal isnt too bad as Id listed my item during the last 1 FVF offer.

    The buyer called me this morning to say he would collect on Sunday and asked if I would prefer cash or PayPal. I said the item had been paid for, he sounded surprised but said his gf may have paid for it.

    I always double check my PayPal account if I have sold something for collection only just to make sure its all gone through. Just as well I did, no payment made!

    I called the guy back and he said hed checked straight away and could see on his purchased items it hadnt been paid for.

    Dont know what eBay were playing at sending me that email. This has never ever happened to me before.

    I've just realised the 3 for 2 items won't be of as much use if you are saying you have an APG from online shopping, as those items are instore shopping. Unless you wish to pay full price in the first place - which may, as a last resort, help spend an APG and get something back with competitors being cheaper than A's full prices. However, I am sure there are better items as paying full price for straight 10% doesn't work out very well.

    How much (roughly if you don't want to reveal the exact amount) is the APG you have to spend? Unfortunately, invisible triggers can't be purchased online can they? I was going to suggest Mullers, for 3 of the spend anyway, but that won't work online either as you can't order the Christmas Bakery.

    I need to know the approx. APG amount so I know how much I have to build the shopping bill up to and also are you in Northern Ireland?

    Also, now I think about it, Flash 60 wipes as they have gone up to 2 in A. Mediterranean Lemon and/or Anti-Bac. Those two versions, should each be 2 vs 1 M. Don't buy Orange.

    Otherwise one or more of the three Flash 400ml gels on my list. Cotton is confirmed as comparing 2 vs 1. However, still quite expensive price IMO on straight 10%().

    I wouldn't be trying the Kiwi Ball of Foot Cushion!

    I'm assuming you have a significant (double-figures) APG to spend and want as much back as possible, whilst at the same time ending up with not too bad 10% off prices for each item. If you want to 'overpay' though - maybe one of the Danone Light and Free yogurts on my list 2.50 vs 1 - no need to buy A's mbuy - or I understand the Oykos yogurts have also increased (why would anyone be getting any yogurts other than Muller Lights?) in price in A. They kept buying me Apple Cinnamon on my wombles at 1 A. Now, on the one I've just checked, someone has bought me one at 2.30:

    1x Oykos Special Edition Luxury Greek-Style Festive Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (4x110g) 2.30 1.00

    I did have a list of flavours of those on Monday that M had (strangely I didn't have Apple Cinnamon - but my wombles then added it for me so I did) - however I ruled them out as A was 1 on them at the time. Now it's 2.30, I haven't got the list from Wednesday. I will try to build it up though - either Monday's pages are somewhere around or msm may assist.

    This item also compares like this if you buy two (M mbuy):
    2x Alberto Balsam Juicy Green Apple Shampoo (350ml) 2.00 1.80

    Someone mentioned the Seriously Strong cheddar at 2 in A earlier.

    Not 10% cheaper than M:
    1x Seriously Strong Creamy Medium Cheddar (350g) 2.00 2.00

    Not an item for me - v. expensive 5.71/Kg - 10% off is still in excess of 5/Kg!
    If you want APG back rather than necessarily good price end-up, depending on what you have use for, the Bic 2 Sensitive Disposable Razors (10) go 2 vs 1 M. So, in pure terms of APG amount, 2 is better spent on an item that compares 2 vs 1 than one that gives 2 vs 2. Then again, we would never buy any cheese at all if things were like that and would keep buying razors after razors every shop simply for the APG back - 20p back will always be worse than 1.10. At some point, if we want cheese, we have to buy it, even though it does not give 2 vs 1 comp. I suppose that is best done on the final shop you make with the APG series - when your voucher, with about half the bill back, becomes lower and lower each time that it is then just spend on items cheaper in A and ended. Buying a 2 vs 2 item now, instead of 2 vs 1, will cut your future APGs sooner. Really the final shop, with no hope of getting 8 items as the voucher being used against it is then so small, should be on an item 2 vs N/A or more than 10% cheaper everywhere rather than losing the 20p if that 2 item had been put onto a different shop and compared. But, then, you would have picked a 2vs 1 (or cheaper) item everytime instead of the 2 vs 2 so would never end up buying it if it was needed. Maybe a different pack size vs competitor at much cheaper than A price on that but same price per unit? It's quite possible to do shops of 2 though that do have 8 items and squeeze a bit of APG back.
