Save on meals out
Tastecard: 2-4-1 or 50% off
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.
Meerkat Meals: 2-4-1 for £1
You can sign up to Meerkat Meals and get 2-4-1 meals Sunday to Thursday. You need to buy a qualifying insurance product from Compare the Market for access, but this trick gets you a year’s membership for £1. You’ll also get 2-4-1 cinema tickets on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Las Iguanas: £10 free (no minimum spend)
Get £10 off at Las Iguanas when you download the app and register for an account.
Your voucher will appear in the perks section of the app and is valid until 19 November 2023.
There is no minimum spend but only one of these vouchers can be used per table. This offer is not available for click and collect or delivery orders.
Burger King: Free cheeseburger or chips
The new Burger King loyalty app earns you points when you spend that can be redeemed for items on the menu. When you sign up you get 200 free points, which can be exchanged for a free cheeseburger or fries. Download on Google Play here or App Store here.
Not valid at motor way service station restaurants. More in the Ts&Cs
McDonalds: Free burger via app
Download the McDonalds app and you can often get discounts on food and drink from the fast food chain.
And sign up to the new reward scheme and you’ll get 1,000 points, worth £1, and free fries with your first order.
MeatLiquor: 50% off food & drink
At certain points in the year, top burger joint MeatLiquor emails members of its list 50% off vouchers. These tend to happen on bank holidays and your birthday – so sign up now!
Leon: 30% off
Sign up to the Leon Lovers Club and you’ll get a voucher for a 30% off your next order. You used to also get a treat on your birthday.
National Burger Day
Thursday 24 August 2023 is “national burger day” and it’s worth checking to see if your fave restaurant is taking part with special burgers or discounts.
Some might be doing deals through the week and into the Bank Holiday weekend too
A few I’ve spotted so far:
Mastercard: Dine Local (expired)
Between 7 November and 16 December 2022, you can get £10 cashback when spending £50 at participating restaurants with a Mastercard. It’s only for London, Manchester and Birmingham, and you need to register your MasterCard before dining.
You also need to book via the OpenTable website.
American Express: Shop Small (expired)
Each year, usually in June and December, you can get £5 back when you spend £15 on an Amex card at participating small businesses – including many restaurants. Here’s more on how it works.
