Coincidence?

Anyone else getting them?

nope and ocado love me normally

hmmmmmmm.

Very odd.
I dont even have a Waitrose near me.

Nor do I but Ocado is completely separate anyway. You have probably got onto a database of yummy mummies somewhere wink

I have too, and i shop in Aldis so i know it's not something i have filled instore grin

Yep, me too. And when I went to the website to see if they deliver here I was told that I could collect my groceries from Waitrose Morningside (Edinburgh). I live in Glasgow. hmm

Definitely not something I've filed in elsewhere either.

How naughty.

Ocado deliver to me at 11:30 at night. No more dodging the replenishing carts at the supermarket for me

Hi.
Just to clarify MN has definitely NOT given anyones email address to Waitrose (or Ocado for that matter).
When you do a survey and add your email address for the prize draw then MN uses the email addresses to select and notify the prize draw winners. The winners details get sent on so they can get the prize.
Sometimes we ask if you'd like to be a case study or if we can pass on your email address and only if you expressly said yes would your details be passed on.
Hope this helps

PS For what its worth, I've had emails from Waitrose before and emailed them to ask where they'd got my address from and they were v. helpful.

I knew for a fact that MN didnt give out email addys, but thanks for clarifying that Ann smile

Could they have some sneaky software that could steal email address'? grin

Hi Ann - if they don't know my email address, how can they send me my prize wink

Nbg - yes, If you use any of the major browsers your email address is sniffable. Hahah not mine though (I just tart mine about like no-ones business hence the level of spam I get blush).

Really?!!!! shock

I'm a bit of a tart then when it comes to that.
I reckon I could beat anyone with the amount of spam I get.
