Boots and Co-op hike meal deal prices - here's how they compare to other major supermarkets

Boots and Co-op are the latest retailers to increase the price of their meal deals. Boots has upped costs from £3.39 to £3.59, and from £3.99 to £4.19 in its London shops, while Co-op's meal deal has jumped from £3.50 to £3.75. 

Boots quietly raised the price of its meal deal in March, while Co-op made the change in February.  

It comes after Tesco increased its meal deal prices by 50p, from £3 to £3.50 in February - but only for those who don't have a Clubcard. Clubcard users can continue to get it for £3. See our Reclaim and boost Tesco vouchers guide for full help and info on how to get the most from the Clubcard scheme.

Morrisons and Tesco (for Clubcard users only) now offer the cheapest meal deals - which typically include a sandwich or wrap, snack and drink - on the high street. See our table below for a full comparison of major retailers' offers. 

You can also see our How to get free or cheap food guide for help on how to cut costs.
