It’s also wrong. Where I live is coloured blue and has a sausage roll right next to it. We don’t have a Greggs. Nearest one is 7 hours away.

Change is good, so well done for trying something new.

Year in Monzo was fun, but some parts didn’t make sense to me. Maybe just me. And yes, probably a lot of work for something I’ll look at for 3 minutes.

However, I was looking forward to December being the month when lots of merchant data got fixed. Looks like that doesn’t need to happen now. Forgive me while I go and cry.

Why don’t you ask @alinnett over here how they worked this out?

(I think I know why this wouldn’t be wrong even though you don’t have a Greggs near you, but she should be able to confirm!)

Tbh I probably could have told you that fact without any data!

This was always going to happen at some point, merchant enrichment in areas is a complete mess, it’s the beast that hasn’t been tamed in all these years.

I’m not that bothered tbf though as I’m one of them who is meh don’t really care about what was spent.

I would love both! Seeing the big pictures trends is interesting when you can then click on your own link and see what you did. If I can’t see my personal one I’m less interested in the big picture.

Like Ocado telling me that I am the biggest buyer of salted liquorice in my county :laughing:

Such a shame they’ve ruined their chance to trend this year….

I keep forgetting to listen to him in the morning while WFH! Does he like the angry liquorice?

He does a “Top of the Shops” for people who are the top buyer of something in their area. You add two other things and then with some quick questions, try and guess which you are the top buyer of.

Not sure I’m a fan of this approach. The memes they’re using just scream “Hello Fellow Kids” to me.
(I appreciate the irony in me using a meme reference to winge about using memes) :joy:

Just on the back of the Greggs/Pret tweet, what’s the breakdown on the Community?

Need to see who has good taste and who has posh lunch :thinking:

  • Greggs
  • Pret

Somehow I’ll struggle on

Remember going to greggs about 20 years ago. They used to do a bag of sausage rolls for £1 (not that nice but cheap) and nice loaves of bread, but I think they’ve changed what they sell since then
