    Visa cards only I'm afraid.

    My Costas that expired 2nd Jan are showing as expired in the app even though I bought the 45p lindors which gave receipts showing they had another year of validity. I wonder if they are actually expired? Will be annoyed if they are as these were the 10 ones
    Originally posted by michaels
    As with all the others I took screen grabs of the costa vouchers. When I saw they 10 I even paint shopped the 3 out just in case of any comments.

    I successfully used one (I'd extended via Lindt) on 3rd Jan and later. So now it's the 3 ones I need to spend....unless they can all get put into one.

    We must have seen quite a few. Have to admit we avoid the seats near the stage having seen what the "clowns" get up to

    Trying to guess how long we have been going, the first time we saw them was Allegra when they were in Battersea power station, like you long before they were popular. The only problem I have is trying to figure out what to watch with so much going on in the background too Really looking forward to Ovo

    I have set up a Just Giving page in memory of our lovely sal and donations are to be made to Martlets Hospice where she spent her final days

    She wasnt a lady for fuss but Im sure she would have forgiven us for wanting to honour her memory in this way.


    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5766303

    Her funeral will take place on the 9th January and it will be private. Her family have suggested that we could perhaps remember her in our own way by raising a toast that evening to an incredible lady who will be missed so much

    Morning all - very cold and frosty outside

    Just pondering wether to do a mulle shop as I have vouchers burning a hole - a keep reading the lists and still cant figure it.

    So if I find a trigger yog then its add 11 and its a A v ? shop

    If no trigger yog then its just 11 mixed flavours and its a v S

    Probably got this all wrong

    Other than that I was just going to do the recycling and get more MandS and hot choc in the cafe - not the most exciting of Sundays ...

    If no trigger (like for me) you need eleven on one flavour and one other.
    APG sees max of ten per flavour so it ignores your eleventh, meaning it sees a TOTAL of eleven and doesn't think you have triggered the 12 for 3 offer.
    Which is the glitch.

    Either 1 Xmas trigger corner & 11 assorted , .....1 banana n eggs corner & 11 assorted ....or 11 of any flavour & 1 of another.
    Best comparison seems to be v Sainbugs.
    Just check which flavours compare .

    Must admit I've donated but not 5. I have charitys which I support outside of this thread which are of a similar nature. I always give where I can especially on here when we are honouring a lovely elite friend but it will rarely be as much as 5. Hopefully that isn't seen as me caring any less but rather trying to spread a bit of help about a bit. Hope this isn't offensive to anyone xx
    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.
