Bargain Hunter Shows How To Get Three Meals For Under £5 On Government Scheme

Bargain Hunter Shows How To Get Three Meals For Under £5 On Government Scheme

The government's 'Eat Out to Help Out' scheme starts today (3 August), which means you can save 50 percent on up to £10 per head of your food and drink bill for the entire month. The offer is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for dine-in meals.

Well, blogger and money saving expert Jordon Cox says he's worked out how to use the offer to get three meals in one day for less than £5. I'm listening.

To kick off your day of savings, you can head down to your local Costa and pick up a half-price sausage sandwich. Fairly simple.

Now, prices vary across the country, but they will usually set you back around £2.95 which, when you slash that in half, drops to about £1.45.

For your next feed, you can then head over to Maccies for a Big Mac meal, but you'll need to work a bit harder to make some extra savings.

Jordon says McDonald's offers a discount in exchange for feedback from customers, which you can claim back by entering the 12 digit code on the back of a receipt from a previous order.

Once that's done, this could bring the price of your meal, which has already been halved from £4.49, down to just a quid.

And if you're not too stuffed after all that, you can end the day with a trip to your local Toby Carvery, where you can get Yorkshire pudding turkey wrap for just £1.88.
