Dont forget those money off vouchers or the extra points coupons!

With all the rises in the cost of living, I find these absolutely essential. I have a host of vouchers but even though I am organised even I manage to forget to use them on occasion.  It is usually when I am feeling tired.  Last Friday I needed some petrol and I forgot the double nectar point coupon I had received in the post.  That was on top of forgetting to use the  nectar points coupon in Sainsbury last week. 

In am using Sainsburys more than I did previously. I was using Asda more however, I always needed to pop to Sainsburys for various items.   In addition, they send me vouchers for points for items that I alreay purchase.My OH had an idea put them in the bags that we take to the supermarket.  So we did,  today I used four coupons and got just under 500 extra nectar points.  The assistant had problems putting some through and did question whether I had bought the product in this case Walkers crisps and tried to say that I couldnt use it.  Went to customer services and they put it through no problem.  So I used that it gave me 100 points, 150 for using Quorn, 120 points for spending over £30.00 and then double points coupon having spent just over £46.00.  Most items will do us for two to three weeks. 

In the meantime, I have put some coupons in my purse in the hope that I remember to use them.

Our Nectar points pay for most of our food at Christmas.  My TNS points pay for a lot of the presents.

So please do not forget your coupons.

  1. Isnt it SO annoying when you leave the coupons behind? or worse, you hand them in, only to discover they expired yesterday. My #2 daughters first job was with TNS - thse points are jolly useful! #1 daugher saves all her boots points for buying xmas presents.
