Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The difference in tone between the BBC One and Two Christmas threads feels much like the difference between the channels themselves.

I wish BM11 didn't feel the need to repost everything he sees on Twitter that might have a tiny bit of relevance to the discussion.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

I then read the small print and discovered that you only get the discount on shops you do in store. Home delivery is excluded. I'm damned if I'm actually going into a shop, where I'd have to mix with all those smelly customers. I'm glad you pointed that out - I managed to miss that caveat in both m...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Wonder what happened here then? Tesco licensed the photo from Getty Images and Mel B's agent but it seems nobody told Mel B herself. The whole Clubcard Plus ad campaign is piss poor anyway. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-50387714 I wonder if the story was updated after you posted? It...

In amongst all this, I missed the news that Mothercare sold the Early Learning Centre to The Entertainer earier this year - which is good because their own brand toys are generally pretty good. I think I'll maybe keep an eye o...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I think I got my loyalty cards mixed up. Just found my old Nectar and it doesn't have it, so I think I got it confused with IKEA Family or the Tesco Clubcard which both have QR.
