    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.

    thanks Anon for the screen shot - I've screen shot the screen shot - so what the supervisor told me was not correct - motorway services and small railway station marks are not included.

    But it has the dreaded sentence
    "Valid in selected UK stores"
    who is to know what these stores are and where?

    Also not more than 30% off - that's not an easy one for anyone to work out - even on meal deals it depends on what you actually buy.

    It also says no wine but I bought a 10 meal deal before Christmas with AP 5 and it seemed to go through easily.

    And no sale or clearance items

    Following the link from the voucher in the app:

    Offer can be used once in store. If the item(s) is subsequently returned, you will not be able to reuse this offer.

    1. The Promotion will begin on 3rd January 2018 and close on 30th January 2018 (the Promotion Period). Health & Beautycard holders can discover whether they have won any points prizes during normal opening hours of Superdrug stores, in Great Britain, during the Promotion Period.

    2. The Promotion is open to residents of Great Britain aged 16 or over, who are current holders of a Health & Beautycard at 11.59pm on 31st December 2017. Due to different laws in place in Northern Ireland, the Promotion is unfortunately not open to residents of Northern Ireland.

    3. At least 1,275,000 eligible Health & Beautycards will be loaded with prizes prior to opening of the Promotion Period. The prizes will be allocated among a random selection of all eligible Health & Beautycards, excluding Health & Beautycards registered by users who gave their age as 12-15.

    4. Anyone who obtains their Health & Beautycard on or after 31st December 2017 will be added in to the competition for the following day. The last day to register your card for the competition will be 28th January 2018.

    5. The following points prizes are available to be won:
    1. A minimum of 63,000 winners will receive the goods in their shopping basket at the time immediately prior to the moment they discover they have won the prize (excluding any excluded products - see section 9 below) free of charge (Basket of Goods Prizes);
    2. A minimum of 127,000 winners will receive 500 points (5) loaded onto their Health & Beautycard;
    3. A minimum of 127,000 winners will receive 200 points (2) loaded onto their Health & Beautycard;
    4. A minimum of 958,000 winners will receive 100 points (1) loaded onto their Health & Beautycard.

    Ts & Cs too long to list on here, see emails.

    SD - Thank you for tights OP

    Other than that it was the usual non event in my store - they have special SEL clearance hangers in mine - one RTC was still most of 5

    I'd be glad of advice too please. I thought we didn't need a trigger as long as we got 11 of one sort and 1 of another? And is this v S please?

    thank you.

    But you can buy one if you like it. Just don't buy 11

    Sure I saw a post the other day of 11 + 1 comparison against Waities, Claire1972 put a yogurt shop with her biscuits against Waities

    Afternoon Elite

    I had a good drive down to Portsmouth, left at 5am and got here 8.30, including one fuel stop and one food and loo stop. Chatted to my friend Kit for 20 m8ns and then went to lie on bed for couple of hours. On my way down I realised that I'd forgotten to put my meds box in case but no way was I going back for them. I carry spare paracetamol and codeine in my handbag so woukd be ok for them, and could pinch a few hayfever tablets off Kit, but no way could I do without my 'nutty pills as I get I'll within a few hours of missing taking them. Either sickly I'll or rock bottom depression. So I rang 111 for advise and was told local pharmacy could help. Luckily I carry my latest copy of repeat prescription in my coupon wallet, just in case so pharmacist was able to go online to see my GP BHS medication records and do me an out of hours prescription and provide 2nd with my necessary medication. Worth noting, and we'll worth carrying your repeat prescription form with you at all time as you never know

    Good morning.
    Hampy congratulations.
    They cancelled my op yesterday I'm not surprised really as its been all over the news how many they have had to cancel.

    I am wondering now if its what I was buying in MandS - they have a very good 6 meal deal on offer until the 9th (main, side and dessert but no wine) - most items freeze so I got 2 yesterday in my small simply and 3 today in the bigger mands.

    I only had a couple of AP 5 but quite a few AP 3 mands - yesterdays worked fine but todays were a nightmare.

    So I don't know if the over 30% discount rule applies or not ...

    For the balance I've been using a mands credit note which expires in March, quite a big one so I've been slowly whittling it down.

    A couple of the desserts will feed more than 2 people - full size apple and blackberry lattice pie - easily 4 slices so you could freeze the surplus ones.
    Also the peach roulade slices thinly and goes well with some vanillas ice cream.

    I've been getting the potato croquets and rosemary potatoes - croquets go well with sausages or even with breakfasts.
    There is also a salad bowl if you have a fridge full of random flotsam and jetsam to use up.

    For the mains there is a full size chicken and veg pie which would serve 3 and a pack of 4 breaded chicken fillets

    Huge thanks for this - I need to nag OH into making sure he has his prescription with him at all times - you never know in this weather - you set off for somewhere, the weather closes in and you do an impromptu overnight stay ...
    Numerous times like this - planes get diverted or delayed, trains come to a grinding halt and you miss the final connection ... bitter experience talking here.

    Very glad you made it to Portsmouth - sometimes it can help just getting yourself out of the house and the normal everyday routine and getting yourself somewhere else.
    I've been starting to flag over the last couple of days and non of the usual "fix-its and cure-alls" were working but todays foraging missions have given me something else to focus on.

    Please can I ask did you have a screen shot of the rules and regs regarding the usage of the mands 5 and 3 android pay cards? Mine are from the end of November, the original batch.

    The store I was in today had 3 assistants and a manager trying to process ours and between them they devised a work around. I was doing 3 seperate shops. Then a minite later the supervisor came back and said although they accepted them on this occassion then they were only for use in motorway service station marks or possibly simply foods.
    (in other words dont use them in this marks again)
    Needless to say I have used them fairly good to easily in 2 other marks - one a main store and one a simply foods.

    Thought I had sorted out another ap account with a different email but same card but it didnt work so back to the drawing board lol
