Looks like O2 have clamped down on you getting more than one lunch.

Have to chose one provider now!

Well I'm not surprised after people abusing it for so long.

To be fair, each was a separate offer from a separate provider. There was never any proviso that you could only use one.

I meant people running around large Boots stores and getting more than one before the timer runs out,I wonder if people can still do that.

Just need multiple phones now. Some cities have a few Boots stores within a short walk too. I think Victoria Station has 3 of the places avaliable to buy a lunch as an example.

I have a dual sim phone with 5 O2 simcards from the PSN deal a while back, I could get 5 of any O2 priority deal. I mean I never have and I probably never will... but I could!

not on my App

I don't think it was abuse as it was per store eg 1 lunch from WH smith, 1 from Upper crust. Where there was abuse was people re-using codes, saving as screenshots etc

Will see how todays offer pans out as it does look like you can only choose 1 of the 4 -5 offers

XXXX!
Lucky I just changed to EE last week.

there is also a 'limited' amount of deals available now, was told last week, so when they run out of the set amount - thats it.

You are lucky. Now you get zero £1 meal deals on a Monday

I can save more than one offer from the initial offer on the app - for me all the usual offers show - Boots, Dominos, Upper Crust etc. Will see what happens lunchtime when I use one ...

What is the evidence for this - I am also still seeing all the offers - if I use one will the others suddenly disappear/show as used?

Obviously it is possible to have more than 1 o2 sim but can you simply swap sims in the same phone to use more offers or will I have to resurrect some old android handsets?

Can't see ANY of the £1 meal deals on my O2 app today

Here's the link on O2's Priority meal website with the new change:

Cheers..

Don't forget the free Creme Egg offer is still on at Boots if you are going in there today and haven't redeemed it yet.

Limited to one offer on my app. Once you choose one, e.g. Boots all the other grey out and become unavailable.

anyone see any meals now?

maybe theyve banned user without credit?

Sorry - x-posted with sunnyP - thanks for the update.

So currently on the website but not the app. anyone tried to redeem the app yet and seen whether it turns off the offer for the other retailers?

I have to go on 'see all offers' rather than seeing them on the app 'front page'

I agree but the kids have a sweet enough tooth to eat them.

Have they clamped down on people abusing priority who aren't actually on o2 yet? Sorry to be a spoil sport but if there was enough to go around I wouldn't care, but caffe Nero used to run out of codes and the boots sandwich shelves are bare if you don't get there quick enough!

not for me. Have you topped up in last 6 months?

I suspect not, I may never have topped up this sim (which was only in my phone long enough to register the app)

Don't ask this!! The abuse I got when I raised on here my issues with non o2 customers abusing it. I had PMs from one rather nasty person who wasn't content with hurling abuse at me in the thread (although they were clearly not losing the argument) they decided to hurl abuse via my inbox!!

I agree with you 100% though. However, if the person on the till doesn't take my code, then I'm going to use it again so I suppose I am abusing the system on those occasions.

Lol I'll await the hate mail

Used the Upper Crust offer and all other £1 lunch are showing on the app as 'No longer available'.

It says on the app "You can only use one offer in this group" so it is definitely the case that you make your choice and that's your lot.

I'm surprised it took this long to be honest. For anyone near a train station with O2 on a Monday, the free use of all the codes was a massive saving. I imagine there's quite a few peed off people at Victoria Station today who had got used to doing this today and were not aware of the changes!!

Your argument is irrelevant, just because someone is not on O2, they are more than likely using someones code who cannot utilise it, I for example work in central city so have more choice to use it than my friend who lives not even close.
CYA!

I am devastated by this turn of events, not only was I super excited this week for my week long of grub for the minimal £4 spent. I got wet, cold and the train station didn't even have crisps to accompany my baguette. A truly sad day here down in Cardiff. I hope O2 receive backlash for this decision.

Just been... After using the Boots offer, all the other offers disappear from the main screen. You can still search for them, but when you go into the offer and click on "Use it Now", you get a message saying "You have already used this offer." The behaviour of the other offers may differ depending on the phone or the version of the app you are using.

So came back with just one meal today. To Be honest, my 4 (upper crust, boots, wh smith and domino's) meals never used to last 4 days anyway. I can be normal again and go out and but one meal, and eat it fresh on the same day.

I used to find it hilarious watching grown men scurrying from Upper Crust to Boots to WHSmiths & then to the other sandwich shop I can't remember!

And then cursing the fact they couldn't get to Dominos in time

I've got the 02 app but only ever used it once after a assistant in Boots gave me grief over it!

No, that argument only applies if there is one code for every single O2 priority user. There aren't enough to go around, so first come first served. If the person doesn't want to claim the offer then they don't get it and save it for another customer to claim not passing to a non o2 customer. Still, I'm glad to see that most retailers really insist on seeing the timer ticking away so the practice of sharing screen shots is becoming less successful.

Good for you!

I can't believe the withdrawal of a deal is generating positive heat?

It should, in theory, mean there are more individuals able to pick up one of the offers from now on. I suppose I'd be annoyed if I lived near a train station and had got used to getting a few of these each week. As it is, the town I work in only has Boots so I can only enjoy one of the offers.

However, recently the code had been expiring before 1pm. But now there is only one claim per person over all the offers, it should mean there are more codes left over. Given the choice I wouldn't pick Boots as my first option, so hopefully others are making that call too now they have to only opt for one.

Well, you're missing out on lots of offers just because your pride took a hit from one member of staff. Most of the retailers are very clued up about the £1 lunch offer, so the chances of getting any grief is next to zero.

Personally, I'd find it more hilarious watching you pay for the same meal deal for £3.49 out of pride whilst I'm getting mine for £1.

You are lucky. Now you get zero £1 meal deals on a Monday


while saving 3 pounds petrol to drive to town centre.

I'm surprised they used generic codes, my boots always wanted to see the page moving so screenshots weren't allowed. thankfully Nero is specific codes so I get a screenshot from my wife and have 2

So you used to spend £3 worth of petrol to get you to town to buy the £1 meal deal, costing an overall £4 oO. You certainly did make the right decision
