In last week’s email and on It Pays To Watch I mentioned a Boots loophole allowing many to get a £10 face powder for around a quid. Yesterday I walked into Boots, and as I walked past the counter I heard my name muttered in disparaging tones; I didn’t quite hear the “it’s his fault”, but I know many thousands have been going in to take advantage of the loophole, so I think I may avoid dropping in for a while.
Not only that, but I’ve also heard feedback about the four free Budweisers in the email the week before. Both MSE Darren and MSE Dan popped down to take advantage, only to have the woman behind the bar tell them “some bloody money website put it in their email and we’ve been swamped, there were queues of people with the vouchers outside all the London branches and now they’re sold out.”
Think I may avoid that too!
