Wombling for Cash | The Mini Millionaire

24 Mar

Wombling for Cash | The Mini Millionaire.

wombling, this is a new term for me.

it is used to describe the practise of collecting receipts to claim their points, or refunds from price comparisons.

since the supermarkets have offered to refund money to match prices with other supermarkets, and reward points, this way of getting free money has taken off. and someone had coined this term .

it is also used loosely for collecting macdonalds cups with the beanie stickers, to get a free coffee if u collect enough. haha.

i had recently got myself a sainsbury nectar card, because i recently got myself a sainsbury mobile sim card. i know there is no logical reason why getting one should lead to getting the other. haha.

 i used to have a nectar card ages ago but lost it.

i buy so few things from sainsburys that it will take me ages to accummulate enough points.

will i haunt car parks for lost receipts? no. haha. too lazy.

i suppose if a receipt for £40 get swept by the wind and deposited right by me i shall keep it (i suppose, not even sure if i would.) i am just too lazy but really it is an excellent way of getting free money and can be a lot of fun esp if u find a receipt with £150 spend on it. and it is not impossible, nowadays people spend heck of a lot .

added. 25.3.15 as usual i should have googled it, and found the urban dictionary gives 6 different meanings to the word. 

added. i daresay the supermarkets dont like it, but i think if u are discreet they will let u as prosecuting you would just be bad publicity. also in uk , many special offers do not require  a specific person, ie you, having to  compulsory buying their stuff. as long as u can produce a valid receipt, it should be ok.

Just a word of caution be careful somebody was apparently accused of credit card theft because they wombled a receipt where payment had been made by a stolen credit card. Then when they had the points added to their clubcard all fingers pointed to them.

If I do womble which isn’t that often I tend to go for receipts which are cash transactions

Welshy x 

 so that is the danger. haha.
