As the cost of living crisis continues to bite, we’re all looking for ways to save a bit of cash without sacrificing the occasional takeaway and night out. In this article, we’ll be sharing our tips for spending less dosh on your dinner.
If you enjoy having the odd takeaway delivered to your home, you can pick up a bargain along with your Balti if you use Just Eat. The popular food delivery service operates a stamp card loyalty scheme whereby, when you order from the same restaurant five times, you receive a fairly hefty discount of around £10 on your sixth order.
Sign up for scoff discounts and freebies
Most restaurants have an opt-in e-letter which allows them to collate customer data and let people know about offers and new products. Although receiving a lot of these emails can be a bit annoying, it’s well worth doing as you’ll receive some great discounts and freebies – for example, when you sign up to Prezzo, you’ll receive a voucher for a free bottle of Prosecco every year for your birthday (which can be claimed when you order a main meal).
Miller & Carter
This Uxbridge Road restaurant is clearly keen for new customers to get in touch as it offers a free glass of wine when you sign up to the Steak Club and a free glass of Chandon Garden Spritz when you sign up to the app
Pub Grub Grab
Savvy pub-goers can save cash by signing up for apps and newsletters and choosing their date nights wisely. Some Harrow offers include:
● The Harrow – A free drink when you sign up to the app and two cocktails for £10 from 5pm every day.
● The Junction – Tipples And Tapas – From Monday to Thursday, between 5pm and 7pm, The Junction’s customers can grab a drink and a tapas dish for just £3.
● The Hare – Wednesday night is steak night at this Old Redding pub and, from 5pm, you’ll get a bottle of wine on the house when you buy two steaks.
As well as these deals, it’s always worth keeping an eye on Groupon and Wowcher as these sites offer some great discounts on Harrow eateries, including a three-course meal for two people at The Rising Sun for £24.95 and, discounts for Posto Indian on Alexandra Avenue.
We all deserve a treat now and again, and grabbing one of these offers and discounts means that you can still enjoy a cracking meal in Harrow – even if you’re tightening your belt at the moment.
