    I had some vouchers to use so decided to check my local to confirm and they have completely removed all signage from the beans + chips and replaced the soups,custard and a few other things with 100 more points
    300 more points still on the dressings and sauces though
    I hope that helps someone

    Signs had been removed from my morribobs but since I had a free fiver from yesterdays haul I gave it a go. Scanned one first to print the fiver, receipt still said 300 points so I chucked through the other 19 and gained another fiver for tomorrow. This was about 9am this morning

    BG booked for repair between 12 and 6 pm.
    Just had a call from them asking about the problem, turns out they have no engineers and wanted to change appointment
    Good job I am on their Priority List because they have to find me an engineer today.
    Just hope he/she is in a good mood, and not being forced to do an extra job, and can fix it.

    Sorry to hear the beans offer has been pulled, hope some of you managed to get all you wanted.

    Mum just got a handwritten envelope from Higgidy.
    Told her to open it - turns out I have won 4 pies worth 3.70 each

    Think I entered an online competition in Nov or Dec.

    buy any of the above items and you will receive 300 points (worth 30p) on your more card, small cans of beans make you 5p profit, you can buy up to 20 of each item per day. When you get to 5000 points you receive a 5 voucher which you can then use to "buy" the next lot. Some people getting them for food banks

    Warning offers have been changed, no points on small cans beans, soup down to 100 check Signage

    My 20 item assorted shop gave only 1300 points.
    Large tins of beans, soup, pesto and salad dressing ! Unsure which work. The signs still stated 300 points on a promo stand so asked at cs.

    10 large beans.
    7 soup.
    2 pesto
    1 salad dressing.

    The small bean section was empty so someone had been lucky.

    My beans were bought about 9am yesterday too as I went after school drop off so maybe the 24 hr thing has some merit

    This was my first shop.
    In the main aisle there were 100 point labels on the soup, nothing on the beans.

    I wasn't going to bother until I saw an end isle promo with the big 300 points sign.
    So if signage is still there go to cs who will add the points to your account.

    Looks like it's been pulled. Or reduced.

    Savvy....

    Did a muggle shop in M while there.
    I think the prices are a lot higher than my previous visit.
    I like the bakery though......

    Dropped into Morrison's as had to go to town, as others have reported lots of the signage had been changed to 100 points, soup, custard, rice pudding. still some 300's at dressings, frozen meals and beans. I got 6 small cans along with some other shopping but no extra points on receipt. went to customer services and explained sign and she put the 1800 point on for me. I think the offer has been pulled on the small cans and reduced on others and they just missed this sign. recall the same thing happening when there was a wine offer on couple of years ago.
