I’m not usually a fan of spending miles for things like wine glasses and walkie talkies.

But this story about two grandparents who met at a grocery store saving up their grocery points for a wedding just seemed sweet.

Strictly speaking they just used their points to feed their 140 wedding guests, and not to pay for the venue or other accoutrements.

And I’d have preferred using points for a honeymoon. But I still wish the happy couple all of the best, and congratulate them on their redemption of Sainsbury’s points!

    They were not reading you then.
    They would have done the BMI points and taken all guests around the world
