10 ways to secure free/discounted coffee when out of the house

10 ways to secure free/discounted coffee when out of the house

Of course, the best advice will always be to make your own coffee at home and take it with you but for those days/times when it’s not possible here are 10 easy ways to have a few extra quid at the end of the month/year!

1) Sign up to Costa Rewards – Free £2 for new sign-ups (with code) + use a reusable cup to save up to 50p for each drink you buy

Enter code: TPDG7 on the app when signing up to Costa Rewards and you will be given 200 points (worth £2)

As for reusing your cups

  • Costa 25p discount
  • Starbucks 25p discount
  • Caffe Nero Double Rewards
  • Pret 50p discount
  • Paul 50p discount
  • M&S 25p discount
  • Ground Espresso 20p discount
  • Grand Central 50p discount
  • Virgin trains 20p discount
  • London North Eastern Railway 25p discount
  • Greggs 20p discount

Here is a link to our favourite reusable mugs


2) Caffe Nero – Free Drink (any size) worth up to £3.85 + get double rewards when you use your own cup!

Get a free Caffe Nero Drink when you sign up (must be on mobile to claim) + Double Rewards when you use your own reusable mug this means when you buy 5 drinks the 6th is free!


3) Push your boss for an upgraded coffee machine at work

Considering the majority of coffee drinkers will be those getting up at stupid o’clock to get a train/bus/tram etc to arrive at work often before the sun has even risen it makes sense to  Get your boss to install a decent coffee maker at work + take your own flask for the commute.

This Coffee Machine + these beans + these glasses + these takeaway style mugs are all recommended by the 10ways team.


4) Get a Vodafone Sim Card to cash in on the freebies!

It would seem the majority of free coffee (via Costa and Greggs) is given out currently to Vodafone VeryMe Customers.

If you’re not a Vodafone customer you can sign up for a FREE sim card on here


5) Pop into IKEA for a free tea/coffee (Mon-Fri)

IKEA Family account holders (free to join) get free tea and filtered coffee Monday to Friday as part of the benefits.


6) Do a bit of Waitrose or Booths shopping

Terms apply but it’s basically one free drink per member, per day. However, you will need to take in your own reusable mug to claim this freebie!


7) Be nice at Pret

Pret has a ‘random acts of kindness’ policy, which means that staff can give away free coffees to people based on nothing more than liking them!

8) Keep an eye out for free coffee days

  • 1st October is coffee day so expecting discounts/freebies over this day (this was the date for Costa Free Coffee Machine Day)
  • March 31st is normally free Costa Coffee (Machine) day


9) [a 10ways favourite/secret] Get a FREE coffee or tea + free Biscuits (Nationwide, happens every week)

10) Buy a portable coffee machine

This selection of portable coffee machines can be chucked in your car, in your bag or similar to help you save money whilst on the go, some of them aren’t going to be that practical (e.g. the one that uses fire to heat up) but that could be great for camping.

11) Get 250 Subway Points (enough for 2 free hot drinks) for new app users

When you register on their app with code X-15XJCZA

12) McDonald’s often give free hot drinks for new app installs

+ you can collect digital stamps (download app here)

Be a financial rockstar and share this with your friends, family and co-workers to maximise savings:

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
