    Good! The offer is for an O2 account holder to get a £1.00 lunch which in itself is a great offer. It's very greedy to go claim 4 £1.00 lunches and doing stuff like that just ruins it for people who follow the rules and claim one lunch.

    Whilst I agree with you about it being greedy having 4 lunches (who needs that much food to eat at lunch) you have to remember to hate the game not the player as this is a money saving website after all. If they have a loophole that can be exploited then that's the fault of the company.

    Exactly. No doubt same people who used this loophole also moan at companies like google and facebook, or camerons' mum.

    So continue to partake of this do we need multiple phones or only multiple sims?

    I'm just glad Boots is still there. I heard a rumour they were withdrawing from it - that would have been worse news for me than the end of this loophole (which I feel the need to stress I never used).
  • Whist this is a money saving website, it's still very greedy to claim 4 £1 lunches just because you can. Perhaps it could be condoned if the additional lunches were being donated to the homeless for example, but I'd guess the majority of people didn't do that.

    One lunch (at whatever cost) is more than enough in most cases.

    The lunches have different use by dates, the WH Smith pasta sometimes has use by as far ahead as the Friday, the Boots Sandwiches usually 3 days. I would eat the upper crust baguette on Monday, the Cafe Ritazza sandwich on Tuesday, the boots sandwich on Wednesday and the wh smith pasta on Thursday - and give the drinks and crisps to the DW/DKs Back to making pack lunch now - even cheaper as no unwanted drink/crisps required.

    Or of course I might try something with multiple sims/phones ;)

    All I can say, 'Abuse it and you will lose it'.

    Blame the people who took the pee out of the offer.

    Erm, I never knew it was a loophole - I thought they were genuinely separate offers. I was going to WH Smiths and getting one day's lunch and Boots to get the next. There was nothing at all in the offer which said you should only take one of the offers.

    It's still worth it for just one day though.
