Credit to them, they have made some lovely cards for a free product. These special cards are really well done and put a lot of payed product to shame.


I agree, the finish on the special cards is really nice.

It was easy. We prefer to do most of our weekly and monthly on-line shopping at different supermarkets so Sainsbury's is used for those items we have not managed to get elsewhere and therefore for what we spend I am lucky if I get more than 2 packets. So far I have obtained 3 packets and 2 of those were free with the Album so buying a complete set of 144 cards for less than £15 was that easy. I will this week however purchase a couple of packets if I can find them purely for the wrapper.

regards

John

I managed to find the packs that Sainsbury's have for sale. They have a different colour on the back. The freebies are coloured blue and the purchased cards are coloured yellow. So for the purest that will be two sets to collect.The fronts look exactly the same.

Was the set you purchased all the same colour?

Yes all blue. I did not know about the yellow backs until I purchased a pack. Note that they are not in a wrapper so you can easily see which are being sold.

I now have 125 of the Yellow back issue so I only have 19 to go. No plans to visit any of their stores until next week.
