    Have you tried taking the back off and pushing it back on again? I suspect I had not quite aligned mine when I put the SIM in - the little instruction sheet shows you pushing the back of the phone (to the left of the finger print scanner if I recall) to activate the NFC, as there is a sensor on the back cover that then links into to a circuit on the phone as well.

    It may not solve it, but it worked for me after I had issues.

    1x Muller Rice Vanilla Custard Low Fat Dessert (1x180g) 0.68 0.35
    Comparison total (compared products only) 6.12 3.15
    +2.97 cheaper

    Some Mullers today. To explain, I went for my 2 GC (for my chocolate and sweets combo. overcharge earlier) - it was the Cadbury Buttons 14.4g (or the version of it that I bought) that didn't pick up the mbuy instore - I may post more about this later if I get time - and I decided to change a 2.99 voucher and a penny cash into a 3.29 voucher. Probably should have bought some Buttons and Curly Wurlys this time. No, I think two 2 GC claims within the space of two minutes, with the same CS at CS, would have been stretching it.

    Afternoon peeps.
    Been to mr t today, first time in months.
    It was chaos, think I prefer A now!
    Was hoping that my conditional spend voucher would work purchasing a gift card with my shopping but it didn't.

    Oh, see above. Spooky how I posted something that, I hope, answers your question goes towards answering your question.

    Had to change it again - being pedantic, I never am! - because strictly my comparison does not say that "the mullers" i.e. all Mullers that A has anywhere at all are working, and we know some of them such as the Corners that are not the Christmas Gingerbread one do not work, or at all not as well, but I know you mean the Lights and Rices and then only those which sains.co.uk has - my comparison shows that some of these Mullers are working and, it may be strongly felt, the others that sains.co.uk has are also working today.

    I hope my shopping result assists.

    This shop was done in England btw (I hope that doesn't matter). Could have been in Wales I suppose if I had done it yesterday but, it wasn't, it was today. This afternoon.

    I bought a lower weight Vanilla Sprinkles again - due to the limited range in my store that also had the longer dates I needed/wanted/preferred. Am I one of the few that has bought all 5 Rices on a shop?

    Not for me, but on a a more positive note I had a mosey onto the competitions thread last night and tried a few of the advent calendar games. I've won a 100 FatFace voucher

    Makes up for all of those useless prize draw entries I've 'won' via the droid!

    2x Dove Men+Care Ultimate Wash Bag Gift Set (each) 20.00 9.00 3Dogs - these are now cheaper in T's than showing currently on your amazing post 210. Now working out at 72p each

    1x ASDA Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce (395g) 0.29 0.28
    1x ASDA Classic Country Veg Soup (400g) 0.39 N/A
    Comparison total (compared products only) 30.59 14.09

    I don't need any of this stuff as I don't give presents. Giftsets going to Hampers/Gift Bags for vulnerable people and foodbank.
    Even though I use some SmartPrice stuff myself, I can't bring myself to give it to Foodbank, so I've started getting the 39p soups that don't compare to anywhere plus the spaghetti and beans as fillers (but not the hoops which don't compare favourably).
