    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
    4) tracey29 - Yet to egin
    5) Needananswer - 42.74
    6) Adventureofmemories - Yet to Begin
    7) NBLondon - 1.28
    8) Katiehound - 5p
    9) vickthestick - Yet to Begin
    10) bugslet - 4p
    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!

    Morning

    If you find a supermarket receipt like morris*ns or mr t, sainsbobs you can see if the points have been added,It will say you could have earnt x amount of points on this transaction.with apg if you find a receipt you can look online and check (if its a used apg receipt it will say once online that it has been used on an email.

    I hope that helps

    Mr. T receipts with unclaimed points are easy to spot from a distance because they have a barcode at the bottom of them. If the customer claimed their CC points at the time of purchase, there isn't a barcode on the receipt :-)


    P.S. - Why do we obfuscate the supermarket names?

    I was under the impression from other forums that it was to prevent it coming up and drawing attention to glitches etc on searches.

    Does it count if I find 20p and then lose it again three hours later?

    ...and Saturday's trip past the Coinstar netted me... a round pound! (Plus some euro coppers). I got one in November which I've been keeping in a coat pocket to use as a trolley token - now I've got two. If I get to 5 then I'll take them to the bank.

    this weeks wombling has produced 1.22 in cc points.

    How is everyone else finding it all,I think it's a little slower than previous years but that might also be because I don't tend to shop as much as I used to,or am shopping more local.

I thought it was time to stocktake the roadkill moneybox - it all goes in there until the next time we head for the seaside and then it becomes icecream buying money - just over 10 built up since last autumn

    65p by way of cc points for me this week.

    I'm not sure if it's just slow or I am slow because the motivation is not there to get out walking!

Which probably means fewer vouchers overall but I do get all the points...
