    for those that would eat old baked beans off someones jumper ... i present to you , the life hack thread ... if times are hard, resort to this thread for inspiration and ways to fuck the system in the council gritter ...

    The asda price guarantee hack ...

    find loose reciepts around asda, left over in peoples trolleys ect, theres shit loads of people leave them behind in carrier bags and trolleys and stuff, on way home from shopping keep your eye out .. go home , go on

    http://www.asdapriceguarantee.co.uk/

    type in the numbers its asks for , time / date , transaction number ... and reep the rewards, then print the voucher it gives you , and go get free beer from other peoples reciepts .. some are a let down, some 50 quid reciepts can only offer 50p, other can be 5-10 quid .. just look for the bigguns form a family shop :)

    this one i found lastnight, was about 47 quid on it ... BOOM ! ^^^^^

    This thread needs more life hacks.

    Chupa Chups for a penny: See these vending machines...

    You can fold a small piece of paper around a penny and it thinks it's a 20p.


    Self service checkouts: put everything that needs to be weighed through as potatoes to get them dirt cheap. If caught act like you're technology-illiterate and plead ignorance


    Free food: send off a few fake emails of complaint. E.g. your nandos was too hot or you had a bit of gristle in your burger... 9 times out of 10 they'll send vouchers.

    Yee its all about that self service checkout scam. Been doing it so much recently. Little tip, say you want a 300g steak, a banana roughly weighs about 100gs give or take, so just type in 3 bananas, pass the item onto the scales (avoiding the bar code) and roberts your dads brother. I use bananas cos its easy to calculate and there quite cheap, if your gonna do it make sure you get the weight right. I've done it before, got the weight wrong, and pleaded ignorant but the don't think the dude really gave a fuck.

    Also if you ever buy anything online, clothes food whateva, even digital music, check for vouchers or promo codes online, massive savings to be made.

    explain, how can it go wrong, dont you just say, select scales to weight white spuds, and then stick the steak down, and whatever the steak weighs, is what it thinks te weight of the spuds are and carges you about 50p ???


    youve made it sound difficult ... what can go wrong ... explain ... i need this life hack in my life

    with self service it often asks is this the right price.
    click no, enter your own price.

    i remember the glory days in 6th form, chicken and bacon sandwhiches for a penny.
    they may have tightened up on this now but was great then

    I'm just trying to sort through what vouchers I got that still work too...

    You have to use them in conjunction with a real barcode generating site, which involves a bit of nawty cloak & dagger internetery to sign up there, it does cost & you do have to be a convincing written liar & ballsy in person if you're challenged in a shop, but trust me, its well worth it in the longrun, I just need to compile it all & make a proper post...
