Boots Meal Deal madness

The Boots Meal Deal (BMD) has suffered some significant price rises since I left he UK in 2004. If memory serves me, the BMD cost £2.85 in 2004; it now retails at £3.30, an annual increase of 7.6%. However, it’s not all bad.

The range has increased significantly, and throughout July, there’s a buy four, get one free offer on the table, bringing the average price down to £2.64. Factor in 13 points on your Boots card when you buy, this brings the price down to £2.51. Couple this with the 50p off your next BMD sticker adorning the front of today’s sandwich (roast chicken and stuffing), then you’re truly in the world of the crazy. Over £5 of value for a mere snip!

Today’s Shapers Blueberry and blackcurrant smoothie will taste all the better.

    Don’t you remember the, “You know you’ve been living in London too long when…” email?

    One of them was “… you don’t flinch at buying a pre-packed sandwich for lunch.” or something like that.

    Shame on you Dan – go to a deli and get something freshly made, or bring your ingredients and make one at your desk, or have something more substantial alltogether?

    FWIW, I’m having Yum Cha at a local eatery for lunch in about 10 mins 🙂
