I always thought that 10 for 2 was a pricey deal compared to DIY, but when I think of what we spent in restaurants last weekend that didn't even fill us up, the deal is suddenly looking v attractive!

I'd be buying 2 litres of fruit juice from somewhere anyway, for about 3 - so the cost of the rest is around 7. Last time round I got a chicken that easily fed 8 people over 3-days, plus the yummy pudding & side dish, all for that 7.

And if you have one of those 5 off 25 vouchers they gave out in store before Xmas then you can buy 2 lots (one for the freezer!) and indulge with 5 of other M&S food for free.

For those who do have the 5 voucher, the voucher actually kicks in before the offers are taken off the bill. I spent 22 last week and still used the 5 voucher (paid 17) because I had a few deals that came to 30+ before the discounts for the deals came off. So for the dine for 2, you could get 2 for 15.
(sorry if this is confusing) It did take a while to explain to the cashier and I did feel a bit embarrassed, but I just kindly asked her to scan it and see if it works, she was very surprised and said she had no clue it worked like this. I might use the self scan tomorrow.

If you buy a chicken don't choose from the dine in display go to where they keep the chickens because they are much bigger.

Anyone recommend a good combination? Not used to M&S meals but the wine is a definite.

Thanks OP, I like to pick these up when they offer the whole chicken. Last one I got saved about 9, this included a chicken worth over 7.

I have to admit that I usually just buy the most expensive items (that I like, of course) and don't necessarily use them in the same meals.

As pointed out above, if you have the voucher this is tracked BEFORE any of the offers come off. Last time I got a whole chicken worth over 7. Went through self service and scanned just enough shopping to get to 25 exactly, then scanned the voucher. It came off, plus 8.50 saved on the meal deal and I paid 11.50 for the lot.

Used a second voucher for the rest of the shopping, btw. Nearby staff member didn't seem to mind. Technically it was my flatmate's though, who was with me - so would have claimed it was split shopping if questioned.

I had the mushroom veggie dish with the med veg and choc suffle. I'm still hungry it didn't even touch the sides Quite disappointed as for a non-veggie it seems a really good deal. The mushroom was yummy though just needed more of it, much more.
