Some supermarkets and high street chains offer up free hot drinks. While some are totally free, others require a little bit of work. We've rounded-up some of the top deals for grabbing a free cuppa below...

  • If you've an iPhone or Android smartphone, you can get a totally free hot drink (normally up to £2) at Greggs when you download its rewards app. You can choose any regular-size hot drink (tea, latte, cappuccino, etc) and you don't need to buy anything to get the freebie.

    Simply download the Greggs Rewards app for Apple or Android and register within the app. The freebie appears automatically in the 'Rewards' section of the app once signed in and is valid for 31 days after signing up.

    When you order your drink, have your smartphone handy at the counter. Instead of paying, open the app and press 'scan now' ready for staff to scan the barcode that appears on your screen.

    Greggs told us this is an ongoing offer for new sign ups, but as always with this type of deal, it could end anytime.

    • The freebie can't be claimed with any other offer, so you can't claim a hot drink stamp when using it. It's not available at the following service station stores:

  • Smartphone users can get a free Caffè Nero hot or cold drink from midday on Tuesdays or Wednesdays only via the O2 Priority app. Simply show the code from the app to staff at the checkout. Previously we've had reports of users unable to get the codes after 3pm so it's worth going quick if you'd like this deal.

    Available drinks are: Iced Latte, Iced Americano, Caffè Latte, Cappuccino, Americano, Espresso, Flat White, Cortado, Hot Chocolate or Tea.

    How to get it

    If you're on O2 and you haven't got the app already, you can download it for free from Apple's App Store or Google Play for Android.  Open the app, search for 'Caffè Nero' and the offer should appear.

    Once you redeem the offer, it'll give you a unique code which you need to show on your smartphone in store at Caffè Nero.

    Warning: If you click accept you'll only have a limited time to redeem the offer, so make sure staff at the checkout are ready and know how to accept the offer before you tap 'Use it now'.

    Not on O2?

    There's a sneaky way of getting Priority offers even if you're not an O2 customer. See our O2 Priority for everyone guide to find out how.

    MSE Rhiannon says:

    This offer is great as you get a loyalty card stamp when you claim your free drink, so after nine stamps (free or not) you'll get an 10th hot drink free, too – great for weeks where one caffeine hit on the go isn't enough.

  • Sign up for a myWaitrose loyalty card (hit 'Join myWaitrose' after clicking through) and get a 'free' regular-sized tea or coffee in store every day from the self-serve machine, when you make a purchase and use a reusable cup. Some purchases are excluded, eg, 5p bags (see 'more info' below for full list), but a 10p banana should do it if all you're really after is a MoneySaving brew.

    Choose from Americano, cappuccino, latte, tea, mocha or espresso. If you haven't got one already, you'll receive your myWaitrose loyalty card within five weeks of signing up via the link above. Then simply walk in with your own reusable cup (see below), make a purchase and swipe your card at the till, and finally dispense your free drink.

    Why do I have to provide my own cup?

    Waitrose used to hand out disposable coffee cups for this freebie, but in 2018 it stopped this for environmental reasons (see our Waitrose ditches disposable cups news story). For where else you can save with a reusable cup, see MSE Rhiannon's Cup Discounts guide.

    For other freebies, see our full list of Free Teas & Coffees.

    • One free drink per member, per day. Offer excludes hot chocolate and isn't valid at Costa concessions, petrol filling stations, Shell and Welcome Break. Can't be used with other cafe or hot drink offers, or the cafe loyalty card.

      Show your card at a manned till or scan it at a quick pay station.

      Also excludes tobacco, stamps, mobile top ups, e-Top up vouchers, lottery tickets, gift vouchers, cashback, infant milk formulae, car park charges, fuel and delivery charges.
  • When you shop in store at Ikea (find your nearest), you can get a free cup of tea or filter coffee when you swipe an Ikea Family card at the in-store restaurant. Ikea Family is just the name of its free loyalty card scheme. You can sign up online or in store.

    You can get it anytime Monday to Friday, but not at weekends, and Ikea says you'll only need one Ikea Family card to get free drinks for everyone you're with. But of course, staff may raise an eyebrow if you turn up with a coach-load all wanting the freebie.

    There's also the option to upgrade to a cappuccino or latte for 40p.

  • You can get a free regular-sized hot drink in store every day with a Booths card as long as you bring your own reusable cup and show your loyalty card. If you don't have a cup you'll get it half price. Choose from tea, hot chocolate, latte, Americano, white Americano and cappuccino.

    You can only get this offer with a permanent Booths card - if you haven't got one already, you'll need to pick up a temporary card in store and register it to receive your permanent card. Booths says you'll receive this within two weeks if you register over the phone or online, but if you register via post it could take up to 30 days.

    It's worth noting you can't get your free drink in the cafe unless you're buying food as well. It's one regular hot drink per Booths cardholder per day.

  • 'VeryMe' is a free smartphone app for Vodafone customers - it works a lot like O2 Priority or Wuntu.

    If you've got a smartphone on the mobile network Vodafone, you can download a free app called 'VeryMe'.

    Register on the app and it'll show you a mix of discounts, freebies, rewards and competitions that change every so often. It works a lot like O2 Priority but is only available to Vodafone customers.

    Simply download the app and give it a try, as offers change frequently and it's pretty self-explanatory. See Vodafone support for help if you have any questions.

    Examples of what we've seen free in the past include free hot drinks at Greggs or Costa, free wine at Majestic, and free Tesco gift cards.

    The idea is then to check the app, swiping through various offers and rewards until you see something you want. Claiming a reward is usually as straightforward as tapping the screen to get a code to show in store.

  • Wuntu deals for Three mobile customers Wuntu is a free smartphone app for Three customers - it works a lot like O2 Priority.

    If you've got a smartphone on the mobile network Three, you can download a free app called Wuntu (Wuntu Three, geddit?).

    Register on the app and it'll show you a mix of discounts, freebies, rewards and competitions that change every Thursday. It works a lot like O2 Priority but is only available to Three customers.

    Instead of us explaining the ins-and-outs here, it's probably much easier if you simply download the app and give it a try.

    Examples of what we've seen free in the past include free Costa Coffee drinks, discounts on National Express coaches, and £5 free to spend at the Google Play store.

    The idea is then to check the app every week, swiping through various offers and rewards until you see something you want. Claiming a reward is usually as straightforward as tapping the screen to get a code.
