    Evening peeps.

    I bought one of the serrano hams tonight at A's that were reduced to 10. God knows why!! I don't even know what to do with it!!!

    Any suggestions, apart from wrapping chicken breasts?

    Big thanks to Hot-n-Shifty for trying the handcream

    Just got a message off him to say it didn't work

    Think I have worked out why not ... just don't rely on mysupermarket.

    On looking closer at Waitrose website, the tube has 50% extra so didnt pick up the comparison.

    Sorry Hot-n-Thifty.

    WARNING

    We have had trouble with AP..eventually we had all codes etc though and we were up and running, so we thought, but in 2 supermarkets the contactless ap wouldn't work...
    As soon as you touched the image of the card a pop up came up called SPENDLYTICS it has the same red logo at Santander bank, it asks you to open, which then takes you thru to google playstore to then download and open...it then asks for your log in id...this login is the gateway to your personal online bank

    We have rung Santander who have now blocked and suspended our account due to this being a potential scam that they hadn't heard off.
    it may legit but ???

    Just burst out laughing at a post on Old Style thread - a lady bought some Himalayan pink salt. The health food shop told her it was 350 million years old; the packaging said Best Before September...

    And I always laugh at honey having a use by date on it, they have found some perfectly good honey that was thousands of years old

    Good evening elite

    Having hell on earth with AP, trying to use the marky with sparky ones is proving impossible, so two questions:

    Can you use them on reduced items? As the whole of my basket was RTC food, I tried breaking it to two transactions, but the manager said it wasnt working because its cast as sale iitems.

    Can you use them all at once?

    Please any advice????
