No. No such luck. What I had got was just ridiculous! An offer for a voucher of £60 off a £110 shop, when I did shopping totalling £110 each week for the next four weeks......words failed me then, and they are only flowing now because I have looked into this! Even the "reward" shop at the end when I spend the voucher would cost me at least £50...
On the FB page for that shop, there has been quite some feedback, so they should be in no doubt as to what folk think about it all. To add insult to injury, in a manner of speaking, we haven't all been sent the same offer: some people are reporting having to spend £130 a week for the period to get a £70 voucher, others £80 to get £40 and one person even reports her offer is to spend £150/week to get £75 back......how do they think ordinary people are going to afford to commit these sorts of amounts to one shop in a month?!
Morrison's, on the other hand, have a system of vouchers, where anyone who spends £40 will get a voucher, and one is supposed to collect vouchers from nine different weeks between 7th October and 9th December in order to qualify for a £40 voucher. The voucher will be collectable in store between 16th and 31st December and must be spent in the same period, and no change will be given. There does not seem to be a minimum spend, but obviously, if you spend less than £40, you will lose out.
This is a much more sustainable and reasonable scheme, and one in which I would definitely participate if I lived closer to a Morrison's, as £40 each week would be sensible and within reason for us. Go, Morrison's!
However, since I do not have the luxury of easy access to Morrison's, nor do I wish to spend stupid amounts in that other emporium, I shall be wending my way to Lidl this week for the few bits and pieces we need......good prices all the time with no daft gimmicks. Probably make a trip to an Aldi next week, as it will be half term, and I shall be doing a stock-up shop.

Did you get an offer from that supermarket? Are you tempted? Are you participating in the Morrison's voucher scheme?
