    For those looking for a new Droid phone, this may be the best deal at the moment (please post if a better deal found):

    Sim Free Alcatel U5 4G Mobile Phone - Black / Grey
    http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7348105

    Argos have this at 64.99 on offer. Note this specific U5 4g, the cheaper/other version does not have NFC, this one mentions it in the spec on Argos site.

    If you go through VC today they are offering 10 Argos voucher back on a 50 spend. This makes it effectively 54.99.

    Not as good as the A3 deal in November/December but I cannot see better at the moment?

    Note this is not a recommendation, I have no knowledge of the phone I was just seeing what the cheapest nfc phone was I could find.

    The large chocolate pannetone are 1.25 for 500g.

    Bacofoil turkey foil 45p but it's only 3 metres.

    And in mine there's a whole stack of Italian-style deli meat platters but not being rtc till tomorrow as dated 7th.

    I bought nothing. Only called in for a look on way home from library.

    Yesterday I spent 1.55. Getting back to normal now.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.

    These one4all cards are getting on my nerves. Thought I would have a go at purchasing the above mentioned phone from Argos with them. I have 3 cards with 10 on them, plus an argos 7 voucher so would have to use other means to pay the rest. Unfortunately you cant do that with one4all cards.

    Good morning beautiful people
    Advice please
    If taking an item back for refund. Is it best before or after apg claimed ? Tia it was an unwanted gift tia

    Use self service, preferably with conveyor, put your apg through yourself (keying in the numbers), when it says "put coupons aside" do that. Finish your transaction then put you voucher in the slot but keep your receipt (drop it casually in your bag).
    Return items later or at different store.

    I had a tidy yesterday and slung five pristine B&H receipts.

    QQ for anyone that has used 10 meal on AP, if you spend less than 10, do you keep the change on the app, like a gift card?

    Can anyone advise on best catfood deals please (mhoc ?)

    Our old cat only ate dried. I've just purchased 120 sachets of whiskas from FF for 22. I added 3 worth of food and used 2.50 off moc so 19.50 for 120 sachets. Is that a good deal or is there a better way. I suppose tins should work out cheaper ?

    Tia xx

    Have a great weekend everyone xx

    just to edit.... a quick search shows that this one is the same barcode as the xmas one so could also be used as an invisible trigger.

    Wow thats great news.
    I know how you are feeling as my DSis has been trying for a baby for the last few years and unfortunately had 6 miscarriages. She had numerous tests and they couldnt find anything wrong. She is now 6 months pregnant and all going well so far. I have been passing on the baby bargains posted on here and the other sites. So exciting

    Morning all

    If anyone is buying 11+1 mullers and looking for fillers v Sains, it's not easy! However, I found that Nakd bars in 3 flavours: - lemon drizzle, peanut delight and cocoa coconut work out free after APG if you buy all 3 and claim 60% back on on shopmium. If you're not already using the shopmium app you would get something else free as well if you join via a referral link. If you can be bothered searching mine is on the referrers board - Link - but you will likely find other familiar names on there as well. I joined 22-4-16 and I have had loads of free stuff, I really can recommend it.

The phone is 19.99 but then trade in seems to be higher at CEX or eBay. Refurbished are 9.99 but out of stock .

    2% Cashback on Q/TCB unless anyone can spot a better option?

    S and others may have clearance phones too? The key is Android 4.4 Kitkat or higher operating system for Android Pay to work.
