    Yes, my point was that I didn't understand why gocat had problems when trying to use them as part payment.

    i do it this way to make sure money has gone on before i scan goods.


    i scan the key fob card (christmas saver) in shopping mode. i add the amount i want. it then says (as expected) something like "this card is already in use" do you want to top it up. then i add money amount. this avoids doing it at the end, in case sa's start hovering when im using the touch screen like a typewriter lol

    My 2 best shops today from Waitrose - OH has his own card as well so I split the shopping into 2

    3 crafted by crackers juice juice at 1.35 each
    pizza express passatta 1.05
    magazine
    latte
    Saturday telegraph

    When we had a Pizza Express meal at the end of last year after we paid the bill the girl gave us a couple of 50p MOCs off any pizza express items so I've been waiting for it to go onto the My Picks list again.
    The juice is on Shopimum - 60% off for 3 cartons so 2.43 to come back. Its also on GJ for 40p cashback - so after both lots these work out at about 41p each
    (sadly I remember when basic fruit juice was 33p a carton, how sad is that )

    so
    minus 21p for PYO for the passatta
    minus 2.35 for the latte (its gone up in price)
    minus free magazine 2.00
    minus free newspaper 2.20
    minus 2.86 in cashback to come
    real final total 1.53

    The 2nd shop was even better

    pizza express passatta 1.05
    2 princes peach slices 1 each
    2 x bodyform wings long 1.43
    magazine
    Saturday Times
    latte

    I had 2 of the free princes canned fruit print off MOCs.
    Also I sent for the free Bodyform samples that were on Freebies threads a while back and these came with 50p MOCs. I wanted to get another type of liner but our store does not stock them. Instead I found 2 with free little square tins attached to them, very nice designs - these are perfect for the Christmas shoe boxes - I collect odds and ends for them all year round.

    minus 21p for the passatta PYO
    minus 25p for the Princes fruit multibuy
    minus 86p for the Bodyform multibuy
    minus free lattee 2.35
    minus free magazine 2
    minus free newspaper 1.70
    minus 50p MOC for passatta
    minus 50p x 2 for bodyform
    minus 1 x 2 for Princes fruit

    final real total 1.09

    And then the till spit machine gave me a voucher for a free fage total greek yog Till chap said to be careful to get the correct size and type and then to come back to him so I did and so I had a free 1.10 yogurt to go with the peach slices
    Then I realised it was on the COS list and uploaded the receipt which was accepted - 1 cashback (oh dear in the excitement I didn't realise they came in different sizes)
    So that 2nd shop cost in real money 9p

    In our little Waitroses we have an older gentlemen on the basket tills and he is fabulous, very encouraging with the coupons and offers and loves it when you get your totals down to just a few pounds - when we go to waitrose we first look to see if the coffee machine is working and then see if the chap is on the tills
    Today I was so determined to have my shops scanned by him I let three people go in front of me, my random good deed for the day

    This tickled me

    The answer to the Muller conundrum is to cut the plastic in half - we have to do this for Sophie cat who loves cleaning out yogurt pots. Sophie cat adores human breakfast food - with a cereal bowl or a yog pot on the table or on the breakfast tray she sits and drools, coverting every mouthful - the last bit of milk does into her dish and the empty yog pot has t be cut in half for her

    Mullers I don't mind, its the fruit corners I hate, far too fiddly.

    I cant work out the corners, I seem to get a plain yoghurt and some jam I have to mix in.

    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.

    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.

    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
