There is such a thing as a free lunch with these offers from food and drink retailers. Bagging a freebie can be as simple as signing up for a newsletter or downloading a free app. So don’t miss out on these amazing offers
Grab the Greggs App
The high street baker has it’s own app which doubles as both a loyalty app and a way to pay in store (although it’s not necessary to use to to pay to grab your freebies).
You will get a host of treats including freebies on your birthday and special deals throughout the year. The Greggs App also acts as a coffee loyalty card so you will get a free coffee for every seven you buy. You will also be entered into prize draws and you may even get a chance to join the Greggs tasting panel to try out their new products
Freebies from McDonalds
The popular fast food restaurant has it’s own app and every so often you can blag a freebie just for having it on your phone.
At the time of writing they are offering a free McMuffin for a day, but regular offers include a free cheeseburger for anyone who has used their app before.
Also whilst it’s not quite a freebie, this simple hack will allow you to get a Big Mac and fries for £1.99 a saving of over £2 on the regular price.
All you have to do is fill in the customer satisfaction survey on your receipt when you order at McDonalds and you will receive a code which entitles you to the £1.99 deal on your next visit. Then use the receipt from that deal to repeat the offer and bingo £1.99 Big Mac and fries forever – well until they stop running this deal.
And don’t forget McDonalds free drink loyalty program either. Peel off those little beans you find on the side of your hot drinks cups. For every six stickers you collect, you can blag a free drink.
Free Food from KFC!
Everyone loves free chicken and there are plenty of offers available when you join the Colonels Club at KFC. To join all you have to do is download the free app and get collecting rewards which can be exchanged for free KFC food.
You can get free hotwings without even making a purchase. Simply sign up on the app and KFC will give you three free stamps which is enough to exchange for some lovely hotwings.
Scan your app every time you purchase at KFC and you will get 1 stamp if oyou spend over £3 and two stamps if you spend over £15. Just 3 stamps bags you a free side, 7 a free snack and 11 gets you £5 off your order. So, if you eat at KFC regularly don’t miss out on your freebies
