Co-op cuts meal deal costs for members, but if you don't have a loyalty card you'll pay more - here's how it compares
Co-op has lowered the price of its meal deal from £3.75 to £3.50 for members of its loyalty scheme, but it's increased the price for non-members from £3.75 to £4. Here's how it compares.
The convenience chain only upped the price of its meal deal, which typically includes a sandwich or wrap, snack and drink, in February from £3.50 to £3.75 for all shoppers. But now members and non-members will be charged differently (though students can still get 10% off with a valid TOTUM card, the student discount card).
To get around the increased cost, you now need to sign-up to Co-op's free loyalty scheme by creating an account online. There's a £1 joining fee, which Co-op says is to cover the cost of having a share in the company as it's owned by its members, but it comes with benefits including personalised discounts, plus you earn 2p for every £1 spent on Co-op branded products, which can then be spent in Co-op.
