    Wombling 2018! 2nd Jan 18 at 6:05 PM
    Hi all,

    As some of you may be aware, there used to be some yearly wombling threads on here however, these seem to have been discontinued so why don't we start again?

    All you have to do is a post about any successful wombles which could be...

    - Found ASDA receipts for the Asda Price Guarantee
    - Found Sainsburys/Morrisons/Tesco receipts that you gain the Nectar/More/Club card points off
    - Roadkill (Money found in the 'wild')

    The idea is to keep a running total to see who the wombling champion of 2018 will be!

    Contestants

    1) MotoringMore - £10
    2) nelie - 48p
    3) Ladykernow - 1p

    11) Fingerbobs - £2.32
    12) never too old - £10.68
    13) ma-ri-ella - £2.15
    ------------------
    Clubcard Points are 1p per point no matter if used in a boost promotion
    A McDonalds coffee bean is worth 22p

    ------------------
    Last Updated 01/03 at 10:55 - If you have an issue with your number allocation please inform me ASAP. Also, to make my life easier, if you could place your running total in your signature, it'd be much appreciated! Also, if I have missed a post or if I've allocated values wrong, please inform me - good luck all!

    I'm afraid I'm like a bad womble I don't really keep track of any extras, Tesco receipts convert to Avios, no idea how many they convert to.

    Do you fly often, or are you saving for a special trip?

    I think too many people look in the first few weeks of the year but usually by about March it picks up because they drop off.

    I've updated my totals to include a little bit of roadkill collected this week.

    Obviously, the other wombles in your area get up earlier.... Thought: The trolley-wranglers or other staff must have a pretty good opportunity to gather receipts. But it would soon become obvious if they turned up with fistfuls at the end of each shift so they might have to go to a couple of other branches to convert them.

    The closest store to me is Morrisons- but I don't really like them too much. Decided to pay a visit.....Now have to activate my new temp More card - found a decent till receipt, however don't think they are worth a penny each are they? since you need 5000 for £5.
    So how do record that?- 470 More points (is that 4.7 pence??!!)

    Thankfully my switching bank deals are rather more lucrative! (£250 this week)

    Another day another 5p.... Being the smallest and easiest to lose I guess. In last year's pile of "random foreign stuff from the Coinstar" there were 2 or 3 Swiss 1/2 franc pieces which are very similar to a 5p but worth about 20p. Also a Belarusian 1 rouble - visually similar to a 10p piece but worth nearer 40p. Biggest single hit this year being a Euro and a 10 cent coin together. Still - they all add up eventually.

    It doesn't have fuel sadly, and it doesn't have a cafe!

    But thanks for the calculation! I''m used to Mr T where 1pt=1penny

    Found a receipt today-230pts
    I'll press on........

    Yes, that was the problem - we already had a Co-op so they must have sold the Finefare / Somerfield to Morrisons.

    At the time of the takeover M. bought the derelict Lincs bus co. depot garage behind the store and told the 'new' staff that they might turn that into a filling station in the future.......but it never happened. M. petrol station is a mere 15 miles away!The depot was dismantled and the space has become a staff car park!!

    It is a small store and simple can not accommodate a wide range of stock- as I said 2 trolleys in the aisle and no-one can pass.
    Ha, this is a rural market town- does not equate with a capital city!!!!

    I have discovered that trips to the bottle bank sited in the car park produces a lot of almost new bags for life, even M. strong shoppers dumped in the bin. These are released into my care.......
