    Missed it, I see Anon has quoted so I will have a look. I am thinking of getting into this industrially with o2 pixi 4s used to register cards and the CEX'd I reckon I could do up to 10 cards a day which is an awful lot of 10p haribos as the cash machine approach seems too dodgy and I haven't figured the T/S no purchase work around.

    Afternoon

    Found some M&S bargains that were not showing on the sale links even though in the sale. Mostly makeup sets and makeup/washbags from 1.99 upwards...

    EDIT:

    Try this link as original did not work, change items low to high price.

    https://www.marksandspencer.com/l/beauty/makeup


    More on this link again change to low to high price.

    https://www.marksandspencer.com/l/beauty/gifting


    Hope links works you should be able to scroll through from low to high price.

    I was thinking of looking into one before to get through credit card/current account conditional spend offers, for example only this morning BA tried to persuade me to get an avios amex 30k miles for 3k spend in 3 months and then a free companion ticket for 10k spend in a year so if I could just pay myself using a card for say 1% it might work out worth it.

    Not getting ahead though, I think we need to figure a good way of using the M&S droid vouchers as DW failed again this morning, we think because it was a sale item with more than 30% off but then how does one do 30+ good value transactions at M&S for 3/5 quid each?

    Yes, this is what I was thinking about. I thought just having no money in the account would do it (it has for me in the past on a different card), but past two days it's just authorised multiple transactions on AP even though there's only a few pence in my bank.
    What about doing 1p transactions with the reader.. would that work? 1.7% of 1p?
    Your pm is full too.

    Also ordered a new hanging washbag for me 3.99. Shame only the stripe one left would have loved the vintage bird.

    Do any of the Elite use HP Instant Ink ?

    I see from the referrals board that you can add peoples promo code when you sign up to both get extra months. Would rather use someone I 'know' from the Elite !

    Don't want to break any board rules, so happy to go via posts on the correct thread to share the code when I get round to signing up, so just want to work out who to use first of all.

    Been to A - I didn't realise the nivea lip balms were not in the 3 for 2 anymore. The carmex ones are though. The only comparison I can see online is the cherry one 2.50 vs 1.8 at M haven't tested though

    MnS AP.

    Forgot to add, I don't think these work on reduced yellow label items.

    I've had a couple of experiences with a reduced item + a full price one in same transaction, and code's didn't work or only took off the value of the full price item.

    I know they say gift card on them, but I think they work like mocs.

    Morning Elite

    Was the lip balm and butter tested, I don't think I've seen anything about it since Izzey posted but might have missed something. Will check lunchtime if it hasn't. TIA

    I'm currently struggling massively with early pregnancy hormones. Today is the second day I've had to shut myself in the loos at work because I can't stop crying over the most smallest thing ever. I was not like this with my first at all. My stomach has ballooned too. How am I going to keep this secret for another few weeks?!
