    I remember doing that at t a long time ago
    It would need testing, returning something with the receipt and see if they will return the coupons onto a gift card.

    Im happy for now using mine on food, I only have 3 ones left from my first month ap.

    Also if anyone watched the food prog the other week that followed the fish processing from Iceland to make posh extra large adult fish fingers from Waitrose - Marks seem to do the same product a shocking 3.50 for 6 but they are at least twice the size of normal fish fingers so 2 will do me fine and then its not so bad price per meal.
    So I got those for 50p with an AP 3 - worth doing a taste test anyway.

    My little-ish @'s store which has had no kallo, no cow & gate, no propercorn, no hippeas, no christmas corner, has got raspberry dougnut muller lite. YEAH!!! I can confirm that they are still working.
    Although i'm not a fan of youghurts and usually give them away I did participate in one tonight as I have a tooth abscess (I look like a hamster with full cheeks) and I must say they are quite nice.

    I struggle to do 10, I was trying to think of a way to get a second account.
    I have a card waiting to be validated (bank insisted on sending me Tel banking number so they could ID me).. so I have the phone I bought from Argoos sat with an un-validated AP account on it.

    Thinking, should I validate or not.

    The atm thing is going to be near impossible - only one machine near me then having to go to town centre every day, then there's always bank trouts hanging about, too stressy, and unable to go at night time.

    Tesco, I haven't even looked into that there's no T here and would have to travel out of town.

    Haribo - seems like dead money to me, I'd rather buy things we'll use.

    So 20 per day would be pretty impossible.

    Looks like it's not just me who has thought about a card reader.

    Nope, so no idea how you generate a declined transaction at will....

    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?

    The T&Cs do clearly state that any refunds will take the discount into account, which sort of suggests you return a 4 item on a receipt where you used a 3 voucher and you will get 1 back.

    I think it safe to say that we need to be grateful we have won any and start to think of ways of using them legitimately rather than (further ways) around the system .

    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

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