Get a free month of Tastecard membership, or three months for £1, giving you 2-4-1 and discounted meals and cinema tickets across the country.
Tastecard gets you discounted or 2-4-1 meals at 1000’s of restaurants. It’s possible to get a one-month free trial but these deals will get you one at a cheaper price. Gourmet Society is a little different, but does a very similar thing, and also has the “+” (plus) membership option for savings at the cinema.

Top Tastecard and Gourmet Society deals and offers
The bulk of these are for digital memberships, which means you access your card via the app on your smartphone. However there are a couple which come with a card – but do check when you click through.
Three months Tastecard + for £1
You get 90 days for £1, which is better than the usual deals out there. It renews at £4.99 a month, so you’re not locked in for a year and can cancel it at any time.
Three months Gourmet Society membership for free
On the surface, this seems like a better deal – and it might be. You obviously save £1, but as it’s for Gourmet Society +, not Tastecard, the deals might be different. So do check the restaurants and deals. When the deal ends it will auto-renew at £34.99 for a full year.
Six-month Tastecard + for £14.99
This Black Friday flash sale offer lets you get a shorter than normal membership at a low price. When the six months is over it auto-renews at £4.99 a month.
One year Tastecard + or Gourmet Society + for £29.99 with a physical card
If you know you want the membership you can just go straight for the 12-month option, though really you should get the free months above!
Anyway, it’s £29.99 with Tastecard – which is a decent price – or £5 more with Gourmet Society. Unlike the versions above you get a card in the post, rather than just a digital one. Like the others you need to cancel if you don’t want it to carry on for a second year.
One month Tastecard for £6.99
If you don’t want to sign up for a long time, this is an option to pay monthly at £6.99 a month.
Other dining club deals
These are similar, if not the same, as Tastecard and might represent better value depending on where you live and places you eat at.
Meerkat Meals – a year for £1 ish
If you buy a one-day travel insurance product via Compare the Market you get access to both Meerkat Movies and the new Meerkat Meals. It’s more restrictive than Tastecard and Gourmet Soc, but it’s not a bad deal when paired with the movie offer. I’ve written more in detail about what you get and how it compares.
What you get with a Tastecard
There are thousands of restaurants listed on Tastecard, from your local Indian to chains such as Pizza Express and Prezzo. They offer up to 50% off or 2 for 1 discounts.
You can also sometimes get Tastecard+ included, This has some decent discounts on cinema tickets.
It’s worth noting that Tastecard is owned by Gourmet Society, so they offer the similar discounts and deals on both cards.
Is a Tastecard worth the money?
At full price (£79) I don’t think a Tastecard is worth the money, but around £30 isn’t a bad price as you’ll be even after a couple of meals out. Then the savings start. I’d definitely try a trial offer first just to see whether you’re likely to use it.
Before buying, check the TasteCard site to see what restaurants are included near you. If that looks good, take advantage of the offers below and go grab it!
If Tastecard+ is included, even better. However, I’d only use it for the cinema discounts. I don’t rate the theatre and hotel offers as you can get the same or better elsewhere.
Cancelling your Tastecard
In the past, there have been issues with people forgetting to cancel before their free trial or year’s membership ends.
Tastecard auto-renew your membership and you need to call up or go online to stop that happening more than four days before your renewal date. I’ve written more about how to cancel here, or watch the video below.
