Offers do sometimes change, and you also need to check exactly which items are included. It's all too easy to pick up something which doesn't have a sticker on the shelf to say it is in the offer!

Boots - £3.39 or less

The Boots meal deal has been going for 20 years, and although there have been a few price rises along the way it is still great value. The current deal includes a main, which could be a sandwich, wrap, sushi or pasta salad. You can also choose a snack, selecting from both savoury and sweet items, ranging from crisps to yoghurts or cereal bars, and a drink - the options include fairly large bottles of juices and smoothies.

As it is currently Veganuary, Boots has recently introduced more vegan options within the range. If you choose more expensive items from the range, you can easily end up getting a £6 or £7 lunch for £3.39.
