Major supermarket is selling frozen meals for just 1p – but there’s a catch

A MAJOR UK supermarket is selling frozen meals for just 1p – but the offer ends tomorrow and there’s another catch too.

Iceland is offering shoppers the chance to get a frozen meal for just 1p to help people save a bit of cash in the cost of living crisis.

Iceland is selling frozen meals for 1p until Friday.

It comes as shoppers may be trying to reduce their bills as prices continue to rise. 

Prices in supermarkets have risen for households across the UK, but also prices of energy costs.

Meals on offer for 1p at Iceland include spaghetti bolognese, macaroni cheese, cottage pie and chicken stew and dumplings.

Iceland’s own ready meals stand at £1 usually, saving you 99p per meal if you take up the offer. 

Which frozen meals are included in the offer?

  • Lasagne (£1, 500g)
  • Spaghetti Bolognese (£1, 500g)
  • Toad In The Hole (£1, 300g)
  • Macaroni Cheese (£1, 500g)
  • Chicken Curry & Rice (£1, 500g)
  • Cheesy Beans and Sausages (£1, 500g)
  • Cottage Pie (£1, 500g)
  • Minced Beef Hotpot (£1, 500g)
  • Sweet & Sour Chicken & Rice (£1, 450g)
  • Bangers & Mash (£1, 400g)
  • Shepherd’s Pie (£1, 500g)
  • Vegetable Lasagne (£1, 500g)
  • Chicken Stew and Dumplings (£1, 500g)
  • Chicken Hotpot (£1, 450g)

There’s a catch – you’ll need to spend at least £25 to qualify

To get the deal, you’ll need to spend £25 on your online order so the deal is only useful if you were already planning on doing a big shop.

At checkout, once you’ve added your chosen ready meal, enter the code READY1P and the offer will be added to your basket.

You only have until 23:59pm tomorrow (3 November) to grab the deal though, so be quick. 

You’ll be able to get a discount on three frozen meals per shop.

Richard Walker, Iceland’s managing director, said: “Our customers told us that they really benefitted from our online 1p deal when we ran it with fresh veg, so we are really pleased to offer it now on frozen ready meals.

“With research showing that people are giving up hot dinners due to cost-of-living concerns, offering frozen ready meals for 1p means shoppers can add them to their shop and freeze meals until they are needed.”

This isn’t the first time Iceland has dramatically reduced the cost of its food.

How do other supermarkets compare?

Iceland’s frozen ready meal range is one of the cheapest on the market, just behind Asda which sells frozen ready meals in its Essential Range at just 90p.

Morrisons follows Iceland with a bit of a jump to frozen ready meals starting from £1.49 to £1.75.

Tesco isn’t far behind and sells dinners starting from £1.60 and ranging to £2.20 for its own range products.

But Sainsbury’s own frozen range varies from about £1.60 for a chilli con carne to £2.20 for a liver and bacon dinner.

In April, Iceland slashed the price of its vegetables to 1p during the run-up to the Easter weekend. 

Shoppers had to spend £35 to claim the offer.
