    I've just found a shop small which has closed down. Last year they credited us with 5 when that happened. Has anyone tried to contact them about this sort of thing please?

    (I got so cross with them earlier this week !!!8211; actually about their increasing my credit limit !!!8211; that I actually sent them a real letter! I took the opportunity to complain about the lack of an email address or secure messaging which their letter still thought existed but which has been pulled, as far as I can see.)

    Less than 20 (in most stores) and you can process it yourself on self scan (or staffed till) without a supervisor,

    The vouchers dont currently scan as it throws up an error - on the normal shopping screen there is an Enter PLU/barcode button before you go to pay - click on that and enter the barcode number off the apg voucher. It then asks for the receipt - either scan or manually enter the number above the barcode.

    You then go to pay, enter your payment and an authorisation screen comes up - Accept and payment then goes through (if voucher is rejected it normally means you mistyped the voucher or receipt barcode!). If it asks for authorisation then the SS staff should be able to process (normally when over 20, but sometimes when less than this depending on the store - and sometimes a random check).

    Mixed results so far on the HUKD thread - some have received a credit, others not - their CS dont seem to be as accommodating so far, the map isnt particularly helpful and it seems to be taking a while to get up and running.

    I've just bought myself one of these for my daily walks. This colour is only 1.32 inc P&P. Not sure I'll have the nerve to wear it, but would be great for keeping warm whilst wombling too.

    Good morning everyone. Anon, thank you so much for this. I have a trip to London coming up! And round me the small shops are not very good apart from my hairdresser.

    Update: nothing very near Euston, though it will prompt me to go for a short walk to the two nearest shops. Thanks anyway.

    Well the Trafford Centre A was rubbish last night. Fewer gift sets than I had expected and no magic Mullers. I was even too demoralised to do soup after all that. (I'd managed to forget my list, which didn't help...)

    B&H worked and I did get some of the luscious lips tins which my local doesn't stock, so all was not lost:

    11 items (6 different) on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda Tesco

    1x ASDA Smart Price Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce (410g) 0.23 0.24
    1x Doritos Tangy Cheese Tortilla Chips (180g) 1.00 0.99
    0.2x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Gala Apple (Typically 160g) (per kg) 0.39 N/A
    1x ASDA Smart Price Garden Peas in Water (300g) 0.21 0.21
    0.07x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) 0.04 0.04
    1x ASDA Chosen By You Cream Crackers (300g) 0.40 N/A
    1x ASDA Vinegar (568ml) 0.24 N/A
    1x ASDA Smart Price Spaghetti (500g) 0.23 N/A
    1x ASDA Smart Price Longlife Skimmed Milk (1l) 0.57 0.49
    6x Nivea Luscious Lips (each) 30.00 15.72

    Comparison total (compared products only) 32.05 17.69
    +14.36 cheaper

    APG was 16.13 so tins were 64p each. I worked that out by deducting the cost of everything else on the receipts. My Excel sheet says it should be 60p. I can't be bothered to check my sums!!

    Thank you, again, 3Dogs, for your wonderful list. I think some of the contents of these will end up in shoeboxes next year.
