Tastecard logo5 Pizza Express with 90-day Tastecard for 1*Discount card scheme gets 2for1ish at 6,000+ eateries

Expired

Sign up via this MSE Blagged Tastecard* link before 11.59pm on Tue 17 Apr and you can get a £5 Pizza Express gift card with a 90-day Tastecard membership for £1. Anyone can get it, even those who've had a free trial or paid for a Tastecard before, but it's limited to one per household.

Tastecard is a discount card scheme that gives your party 50% off or 2for1 at 6,000+ restaurants in the UK, including many independents as well as chains such as Pizza Express, Zizzi and Frankie & Benny's. People have reported issues with Tastecard in the past, but it has assured us this deal with work as per the info below.

Important: To get this offer, you'll need to enter card details and, unless you cancel your membership before the renewal date printed on your card, you'll automatically be charged £34.99 for an annual subscription (see how to cancel below).


You can use the Tastecard via the app immediately

When you sign up you'll get a membership number enabling you to start saving straight away via the Tastecard app. Physical cards can take 5-7 working days to be processed and dispatched, though Tastecard told us it will add extra membership days to account for this and that you should have at least 90 days to use your card once it arrives.

Free £5 Pizza Express gift card

Your Pizza Express gift card will arrive in the post with your Tastecard. It'll be valid for one year from the date you signed up, and can be used in conjunction with your Tastecard or any other offer, including the totally free pizza (norm £9-£12ish) you can currently get via the Pizza Express app.

Are there restrictions on using a Tastecard?

Some restaurants won't accept Tastecard on certain days of the week (often Fri or Sat), or near occasions such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day or Christmas, while others may require you to make an advance booking over the telephone, or place a limit on the size of the group that can use the discount. See Tastecard's website for more details.

How do I cancel my Tastecard membership?

You can cancel your 90-day membership any time up to the last day (working or non-working) before renewal using this online cancellation form on Tastecard's website. Alternatively, you can cancel by telephone on 0800 5677 241 (9am-5pm, Mon-Fri) no later than 5pm on the working day preceding your renewal date. Even if you've cancelled early, you'll still be able to use your card until the renewal date.

We criticised Tastecard in the past for its auto-renewal practices (on a number of deals it made it difficult for people to cancel) - see 'more info' below for how it's addressed our concerns.

Here are some of the issues we raised with Tastecard that it says have since been addressed:

The renewal date for a Tastecard was five days before the expiry date on the card meaning users often missed the cut-off to cancel.

Tastecard CEO Matt Turner told us: “When we founded Tastecard we gave people 365 days on their membership card and their renewal date matched the expiry date on their card. This caused a large number of complaints because those people renewing (the vast majority of members) had to then wait on average five days to receive their new membership card. During this period they were therefore unable to receive their Tastecard discount. We then added five days to the expiry date on the card but kept the renewal date the same, ensuring that customers had continued access to the Tastecard discount.

"We have changed the renewal date to match the expiry date on the card. This has caused a number of complaints from customers as they now have to wait for five days again to receive their new card, but now that we have a digital membership we are able to give instructions on how to download and use the membership via the app. This of course does not help people who do not have a smartphone, but in those instances we will always try to call the restaurant and explain on the members’ behalf so that they can benefit from the discount.”

There was no way for annual members to cancel via Tastecard's website.

Tastecard told us you can now cancel an annual membership via this online cancellation form on its website. Online cancellations can be made up to 11.59pm on the last day (working or non-working) before renewal.

Tastecard logo2,018 FREE one-year Tastecards (norm 80)Enter ballot, if unsuccessful you still get one-month card free

Expired

If you're a foodie, sign up via this Tastecard page before 11.59pm on Mon 15 Jan and you'll be entered into a random ballot where 2,018 people will be given a totally free one-year membership (full price £79.99, though it's often discounted). No one's a loser with this as those who don't get picked for the year's card will be given a free one-month membership instead.

You don't need to give your bank details, so after one month or one year (depending on which one you get) the card just expires, meaning there'll be no auto-renewal.

This offer's valid whether you've had a free trial or signed up for a subscription before or not - though only one's allowed per household, so if you share a home you may need to race to get one. When applying make sure you click 'find my address' and select your full postal address. 

When will I find out what I get?

The one-year Tastecard recipients will be drawn on Tue 16 Jan. You will be notified the following day via email whether you got a one-month or full year’s membership, and your Tastecard will then be sent out within 10 working days (when printed, there'll be 40 or 375 days until the expiry date to allow for the time of delivery, so you won't miss out).

You’ll be signed up to marketing emails but you can unsubscribe at any time if you no longer wish to receive them

Tastecard logo2,017 FREE one-year Tastecards (norm 80)*Enter ballot, if unsuccessful you still get one-month card free

Expired

If you're a foodie, sign up via this MSE Blagged special Tastecard page before 11.59pm on Sun 8 Jan and you'll be entered into a random ballot where 2,017 MSE’rs will be given a totally free one-year membership (full price £79.99, though it's often discounted). No one's a loser with this as those who don't get picked for the year's card will be given a free one-month membership instead.

You don't need to give your bank details, so after one month or one year (depending on which one you get) the card just expires, meaning there'll be no auto-renewal. We criticised Tastecard in the past for its auto-renewal practices - on a number of deals (not those it did via us) it made it difficult for people to cancel. See our 'Tastecard members stung by £40 fee after auto-renewal' news story in Feb 2016 - see 'more info' below for how it's addressed our concerns, as it claims to have got better.

But whatever you think of Tastecard, a totally free one-year or one-month membership with no auto-renewal is a no-brainer and a tasty deal we had to share.

This offer is valid whether you've had a free trial or signed up for a subscription before or not - though only one's allowed per household, so if you share a house you may need to race to get one. When applying make sure you click 'find my address' and select your full postal address. 

When will I find out what I get?

The one-year Tastecard recipients will be drawn on Mon 9 Jan. You will be notified the following day via email whether you got a one-month or full year’s membership, and your Tastecard will then be sent out within 10 working days (when printed, there'll be 40 or 375 days until the expiry date to allow for the time of delivery, so you won't miss out).

Tastecard logo2,016 FREE one-year Tastecards (norm 80)*Winners picked randomly, everyone else gets one-month card

Expired

If you're a foodie, sign up via this MSE Blagged special Tastecard page* before 11.59pm on Fri 15 Jan and you'll enter a random ballot where 2,016 MSE’rs will be given a totally free one-year membership (which at full price costs £79.99 per year, though it's often discounted). No one's a loser with this as those who don't get picked will be given a free one-month membership instead. 

This applies whether you've had a free trial or signed up for a subscription before or not (though only one's allowed per household - so if you share a house you may need to race to get one). When applying make sure you click 'find my address' and select your full postal address. 

You don't need to give your bank details, so after one month or one year (depending on which one you get) the card just expires - though Tastecard may contact you to ask if you want to pay to sign up long-term, but there's no obligation whatsoever.

The one-year Tastecard recipients will be drawn on Mon 18 Jan. You will be notified via email whether you got a one-month or full year’s membership following the draw, and your Tastecard will then be sent out within seven working days.

Tastecard logoFree 2-month Tastecard, OR 4 months for 1 for all*Get 50% off or 2for1 at 6,500+ restaurants

Expired

We've blagged two Tastecard deals for new and returning customers. There are two variants of this deal - two months completely free (where you won't need to cancel) or four months for £1. The deals are available through the below links only. 

Important! If you go for the four months for £1 deal, you will need to cancel or you will be auto-renewed onto a year's membership at £39.99.

What is Tastecard?

Tastecard is a discount card scheme that gives 50% off or 2for1s at 6,500+ restaurants in the UK, including many independents as well as chains such as Pizza Express and Ask, although some won't accept it on a Friday or Saturday night and some may exclude all of December. At full price, the card costs £80/year, though it's often discounted.

The two options are... 

1) Free two-month (60-day) Tastecard membership

Just sign up via this Tastecard* link by 11.59pm on Tue 22 Sep. It's available even if you've already had a free Tastecard trial, but it's one per household. No bank details needed. Once it ends it ends, you do nothing and there's no need to cancel after your trial is up. 

2) £1 four-month (120-day) membership

You can get a four-month Tastecard membership for £1 by signing up via this Tastecard* link before 11.59pm on Tue 22 Sep. 

WARNING: If you don't want this subscription to continue to a full year's £39.99 membership, you will need to cancel. You can do so via this new online cancellation* or by phone (0800 5677 241 or 01484 477 645, 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri). You must cancel at least five days before the end of your trial period.

Technically, you could cancel as soon as you receive your card and it will still be valid until the end of your trial period.

It used to be more difficult to cancel as you could only do so by phone (see our news story Tastecard users hit with fee after being unable to cancel auto enrolment) however, as part of MSE agreeing to run this deal, Tastecard has introduced the online cancellation form to make it easier for users to cancel.

With this four months for £1 offer you'll also get Tastecard+ membership (norm £24.99). It gets you discounts on hotels, cinemas and days out (eg, 40% off at Cineworld).

Before using your Tastecard, always check our restaurants vouchers page as there may be even better deals to be had.

Tastecards can take up to 28 days to get to you by post, but you can use Tastecard instantly by downloading the mobile app on iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
