    Afternoon all
    No post office offer on either my BA Amex or DH's gold charge card
    Off to have a go at toiletries in a minute, wish me luck.
    MIL is still in hospital but making good progress. The last 11 Irish relatives flew home yesterday, so everything seems very quiet now.

    I've never really known what shaking with anger would feel like until Friday evening. I went to MIL's house to do dinner for the hordes. Pulled into a space in front of her house. There were another three or four cars coming up the road behind me, with no room for the one car coming down the road to pass until the ones behind had gone up. Woman in car coming down started hurling abuse at me as I got out of the car, about how selfish I was to pull in like that. I pointed out that I was merely parking as I lived there (ok small white lie) and she just went on and on, culminating in her calling me a selfish f****** b**** I don't think I've ever been so angry in my life. My parking when I did meant that the cars behind, which she had to wait for anyway, maybe took ten seconds longer to pass before she could go down the road. She spent longer than that yelling. What is wrong with people

    [QUOTE=tiha;73505372]I have a problem which I hope you can advise me what to do. I was paying my shopping today with 2 apg coupons from bayilis shops. Both apg were for 19 pounds. I was on SS and one was accepted the other one rejected. Then all AS came and the manager also, and they were quite rude saying this coupons are not valid because I'm getting my all money back. They wanted to take that apg but i didnt let them. What do you advise me to do? Is there anyone I can complain or should I just try with the same apg later in the week?
    Bdw, thank you for all your help in here, I'm managing my family thanks to you all.[/

    Not a good idea to use more than one especially one so big. They get the nark and will try anything g to stop you .

    I am not sure - I wasnt leaving a minute between the other day and no problems (Open ending the parcel between each transaction then next transaction). Last night I got ahead of myself and didnt open in between as so thought so had read you could open them all later? Anyway, the app crashed and no parcels showing .

    I also had the error you had (there is the message about hitting a limit, but a second message about no parcels available at the moment or something too?).

    A minute gap and revealing the prize before moving on may be the safest approach - we are new to this, some of the experienced Elite can advise us .

    Has anyone had the Post Office Am3x offer on Gold or N3ctsr cards please? I was just wondering if they have only offered it to certain card types, or certain customers, this time.

    Many thanks

    I'm happy with any prize I receive from this promo even just a coke, but I am over the moon with todays wins!
    20 meal voucher
    10 meal voucher
    3 Gweggy
    3 MnS
    50 Pizza express (Not so with this one as will have to try to get rid as we won't use it).

    Still.. best AP day i've had so far.

    Have we worked out if you do need to wait a minute between shops on Android pay? I bought 8 separate items yesterday but only got 6 parcels.

    Thank you...As I'm new in this and still learning, would you try this rejected one again in the different shop?

    I do sometimes get "You can't open any more envelopes" message, but I think that's because I've tried to open them too close together less than 20-30 secs (this is just what I'm guessing, I don't know for sure).

    But it still lets me open more after that. I just click on my bank card and count how many transactions I've had that day and get it up to 10.

    Some days I struggle to get 10 if I'm not near an SS till!

    we didn't do too well today with AP, we only managed to get 1 x 3 m&s voucher. We keep hoping that we may get lucky with a pizza express one!! we have never been and being that theres 6 of us it would make it reasonably priced. Can the 10 dining out vouchers be stacked? we have 2 of those so just wondering if they can be used together x

    went shopping again today to use up or should I say refresh my apgs all went well, DD1 birthday tomorrow so hopefully tree up Tuesday!

    Check and open your email Open for a 1,000 bonus N3ctar points gift from us - 1000 N3ctar points received from S if you open the email.

    It doesnt mention to thank you for taking part in Double up - not sure if it did last time? Nice reward anyway (and ready for 10 back off the next Double Up ).

    I have received and Mrs Anon .

    Those fleece gilets are too snug - I got a 16 last year and I'm a 14.

    So I tried an 18 and the arm opening was down by my lower ribs.

    This is rather strange, I got a normal fleece, with sleeves, tried them on in there and ended up with a 12 as I do with almost everything else (apart from a lacey jacket from Primark which had to be a 16 )

    Now it's my turn to have a womble with the Baileys on it.

    Vs M
    1x Baileys The Original Irish Cream (1l) 10.00 15.00

    However, at least it was bought on a shop that was already well more than 10% cheaper versus everywhere and would still have been no voucher even if M appeared at five pounds cheaper than it does. Not best hitting the stores after whoopsie time.

    2x The Polish Bakery Sunflower Seeded Bread - Chleb Slonecznikowy (800g) 0.06 2.08

    4x ASDA Baker's Selection Ciabatta Rolls (2x92g) 0.57 4.00

    2x Heinz Spring Vegetable Soup (400g) 0.30 1.90
    1x Heinz Mulligatawny Soup (400g) 0.15 0.95

    I don't know how they manage to get them like this - they are never in my store whenever I am there.

    Bought at full price in A vs M mix and match mbuy (3 for 1):
    2x Black Energy Drink (250ml) 0.70 0.67
    4x Black Mojito Energy Drink Can (250ml) 1.40 1.33
    M lists - page 18 (on 40 posts per page setting) - Avs M: post 704-707 inclusive; "Buy in M": post 708 onwards.
