I’ve split the supermarket special offers over to a separate deals page as there are just so many!
McDonalds freebies and discounts
Download the My McDonalds app and you’ll be able to get daily deals until 26th January. Here’s more on the app.
One of the January sales most people don’t consider are those run by restaurants and pubs on food. I’ve already had a few emails from places offering 25% and 50% off food during January, so check out your locals to see if they’ve got a similar deal.
Free Leon small box
Sign up to the Leon Lovers Club and you’ll get a voucher for a free small box, and also a treat on your birthday.
2-4-1 or 50% off with Tastecard
You can save 50% with Tastecard at hundreds of restaurants. I’ve got 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.
Free Hotel Chocolat 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.
Christmas food and drink final clearances
You can still pick up bargains in reduced treats with decent dates but Christmas branding. Most supermarkets have been cleared out but it’s a good chance to try normally expensive choc from the likes of Hotel Chocolate too where there’s now 70% off.
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 need to bring a reusable cup with you.
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.
Takeaway deals and offers
50% off Dominos in London and Yorkshire
There’s a trick with Tastecard to get half-price pizza every day of the week at Domino’s. I’ve written more about it here.
