Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

It'd cause big problems with connectivity to British Islands if they did go under, I can see why the government would probably want to prop up those parts of the business at least. A lot of the services up here are by Loganair who I've always suspected would just be nationalised and merged into Cal...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

They took over an old lovely store in Hexham and the food hall turned into a Nisa.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

So. First experience with Clubcard plus today. Signed up within the app and it was available to use right away. Your two Big Shop vouchers are buttons within the app that show a QR code to scan as a coupon. However I spent £115 and only got £9.20 off. Nothing appears to be on the exclusion list howe...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Last time I was in Homebase it seemed to be heaving with staff, who were all really helpful and friendly - but being a weekday afternoon, nowhere near the customers to match. It was a good customer experience, but doesn't feel very sustainable. Our Homebase is now a B&M the size of the moon. I pref...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Even more annoying is the new generation of Sainsbury's unstaffed petrol stations, which have no ability to accept the "10p off a litre" vouchers (advertised in the adjoining store as an inducement for spending £20 on TU clothing, for example). When you get to the petrol pump you see an A4 notice b...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Considering I have the Nectar app, Sainsbury's are still dishing out paper vouchers in addition to the weekly ones on the app. A complete waste of paper as they're still not tightly targeted to my shop compared to the app. I mean they've only *just* added having your nectar card on your wallet to t...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Tell you what annoys me. The paper petrol vouchers that only last a set time. Given they have the tech to be able to vary the price of petrol based on your clubcard (as shown during that excellent offer a few years ago) I wish they'd just make the whole thing automatic. Unless it's also a wheeze to ...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I’m putting all the chain Italian restaurants in the “negative outlook” category. I don’t think the bloodshed of 2019 is nearly over yet, and there’s still about a million of them. Carluccios has started widely discounting now too, which they never used to do. I agree with you. there is too much co...

My Aunt still had one of the old chargecards a few years back.

You don't get as many bonus points as you used to with the credit card (I bought a TV off my points back when you could double on electrical).
