The best deals right now for some free or cheap food and drink!
From lunch discounts and vouchers to free samples and restaurant deals, read on for the best food and drink deals you currently available.
Recipe box discounts
I’ve written about recipe boxes in detail here, but below are some special offers.
Gousto: Up to 97% off first box via Quidco or TopCashback
There are often voucher codes for Gousto, but if you’re new to Gousto and go via a cashback site you can save even more.
The deals seem to change fairly regularly and switch between TopCashback and Quidco, so it’s best to check both to see which is best.
At the time of writing, going via Quidco can get 65% off your first box, and £15 cashback on top. Combined that’s going to be almost 100% off that first box.
So the most expensive box (four meals per box for four people) would normally cost £50.25, but the code brings it down to £17.59. Add in the cashback and you’ll get very close to zero!.
If you’re also new to Quidco then take another £17 off on top. If TopCashback offers the best deal then there’s a £10 welcome deal. Here’s more on getting these new customer cashback bonuses.
Hello Fresh: 60% off and £12 bonus cashback
There is a similar deal at TopCashback (this one also switches between the two cashback sites, so check Quidco too) for HelloFresh giving 60% off your first box and £12 cashback on top. If you order the smallest box (three recipes a week for two people) this brings the total down to just over £2!
Here you can nab a new customer bonus for the cashback sites in addition if you’re new to either site.
Pasta Evangelists: 35% off two boxes
You can get 35% off these posh pasta meal boxes for your first two orders. They’re still not cheap, but will cost less than a takeaway.
The minimum spend to redeem the code is £13, but that’s more or less the price of two portions of the cheapest meal.
Make sure you pause or cancel your plan if you don’t want to keep receiving the boxes.
Hotel Chocolat: Free treat on your birthday
If you sign up to Hotel Chocolat’s VIP ME scheme you’ll get a free gift on your birthday (I got a free £5 voucher to spend), as well as other offers through the year such as 15% off your next purchase. You can only sign up in-stores.
