My post yesterday may have left you in a tantilising state, not about the Waitrose car park at Richmond, Surrey but something which you might have found more interesting. To qualify for a free newspaper at Waitrose as a MyWaitrose card holder, could the minimum £10 spend include the cover price of the newspaper itself so if, say, I spent £8.60 on food and wanted a free Times which would sell at £1.40, was I entitled to it? Yes, yes, is the answer. See the Waitrose email below.

Re: Waitrose Customer Feedback
Thank you for your further email.
I have passed your comments on to the branch for them to look into. I can also confirm that the price of the newspaper is included in the £10 spend.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about this.
