Just wanted to check in on you guys as was wondering how wombling is going?

All I ever seem to see is self service checkout staff SWOOP in after I have put through my items to take unwanted receipts.

It's almost as if they have been told they have to do that to prevent wombling!

I think it is to 'improve' the look of the s/s area...the reduction of wombling is just an added bonus.

I've not had much from wombling recently as its quite a big tesco I go to and I think others beat me to it! :D The other problem I've been having recently is they aren't filling the voucher printer with paper enough on the s/s tills. my last 4 or 5 trips have seen the printer making all the right sounds, but nothing coming out. Part of me thinks this might be a ploy on the supermarkets to reduce costs.

My previous trip has been to go to the s/s checkouts with a basket of stuff, pay for a single lvi (low value item), get the vouchers they print and use the vouchers (usually extra points for an £x spend) on the rest of the shop. This has been thwarted by not get any vouchers at all.

There are always plenty of receipts on the self service tills in my local supermarket, I had to stop doing it though as the staff there know me and there is only so many times I could legitimately have receipts 'because my partner had not scanned his c/card'

I wobble once a week during my weekly shop. I’ve been known to take the occasional receipts from the top of the bin. I use the apps Shoppix, receipt hog, green jinn and check out smart to get cash back

I think we should all go wobbling. Sounds much more fun.

Someone needs to make a website that ranks just how bad the 'Free' WIFI is in Coffee shops around the country!
I can't take this crappy co-op wi-fi any longer. Roll on the 12th Sept when I am having broadband installed :D
Great to see the sun out again!
