Restaurant deals, including Tastecard offers
London Restaurant Festival
This is the 10th year of this month-long eating out event. From 1st October to 31st October you can get special set menus across the capital. We used to take advantage of this every year, but now we don’t live in London it looks like we might miss out this year – but you should certainly take a look.
You can save 50% with Tastecard at hundreds of restaurants. I’ve a post which I regularly update with the latest Tastecard offers, often including one month free or a four-month trial for £1. Well worth giving it a go and seeing if you think you’ll use it regularly. There’s also Gourmet Society which does a similar thing.
Takeaway tea and coffee deals
Free hot drinks with O2
You can often pick up a free coffee from Cafe Nero with the O2 Priorities app – which anyone can get with this trick.
“Free” tea or coffee at Waitrose
If you sign up to the My Waitrose membership scheme you can get a free hot drink when you buy something. BUT you’ll soon need to bring a reuseable cup with you. Already many stores have got rid of paper cups, while the rest of the stores are removing them throughout August. You can read the full list here.
50p off Pret hot drinks, 30p Starbucks, 25p elsewhere with a reusable cup
If you take in a reusable mug you will get a 50p discount on hot drinks at Pret and 25p at other chains. In fact from mid-July you’ll pay 5p more at Starbucks for a paper cup, so bringing a reusable cup will save you 30p.
