    Tesco automated checkout gave me 1p extra change.

    I got £20 off a £60 spend of wine at Majestic by pretending to be a new customer.

    At least once...

    And so did my wife

    I was thinking of a tie. You know, the ones that come with sandwich bags.

    When I was a student, I put the necessary coins in a machine in the in the SU men's lavatory, which dispensed 'something for the weekend'. As well as the packet I had purchased, several more came out, too. This turned out to be a Pyrrhic victory, as I did not get the anticipated opportunity to use the contents of the packet I had bought, let alone the others. :(

    A weekend, in a bar full of drunk students, and you couldn't find a use for rubber johnnies?

    The chewing gum from those machines always tasted rubbery.

    At Christmas, in Knaresborough, my wife and I found £20 on the floor...

    So we were quite chuffed.

    I won some boxes of old camera kit at auction, only to find when I went to collect them that one had been nicked off the auction room's shelves. I was refunded but not well pleased. When I started sorting through the remaining boxes I pulled a camera out of its case and out popped £50 in cash. Instant karma :)

    Scanning checkout @ Tesco did not charge for a cake / chocolate a few weeks ago . Have had Asda not charge for beer on occasions - again using the self service checkout ... not life changing amounts but .... Bought some tea and ice cream allegedly on offer @ Tesco but bill brought up the non reduced price so when I went to CS they doubled up the refund ( company policy ) ...

    I didn't pass comment on that as, here at Chez Spirit, we get through loads of cereals.
