An excellent discount card for the well-organised
I find it hard to believe the terrible review that this company has received on TrustPilot, and it isn't representative of my experience at all.
I was on the 3 month for £1 deal, saved well over £100 on food (at some restaurants they allow you to use the tastecard for up to 6 people), and got many cheap cinema tickets with the TasteCard+ add-on that comes free with signing up. The app allows you to input your bill and calculates how much you saved cumulatively. It's pretty difficult not to go to Pizza Express with your girlfriend when a starter, main and a drink will cost you about £8 each. Zizzi was a restaurant that I would simply walk right past, but I usually pop in now for their awesome food at a fraction (1/2 to be precise) of the price! I went this Saturday and my bill came up to £23 for 2! More importantly for me, it has worked in every Zizzi, Pizza Express and Prezzo i've been to, as well as smaller, independent restaurants.
The expiry date is shown in bold font on the front of the actual card, on the app, and pretty much every correspondence they have with you - even if this somehow manages to evade you, you can work out roughly when you opened the account and roughly when you should cancel if needed.
I put a reminder in my google calendar (which sends me an email as a notification) saying that I should start thinking about cancelling. I sent them an email and filled out their online form (due to all the terrible reviews on TrustPilot), and within 4 hours I got 2 confirmations of cancellation, explaining that I could continue to use the card for the duration of the time it was valid for. With this logic, you could opt in for the tastecard, and cancel immediately after receiving it. I literally had none of the issues mentioned in the other reviews, so can only assume that they've changed how easy it is to cancel.
If you take away (excuse the pun) the bad reviews given by people who simply forgot to - or were too lazy - to cancel (auto-renewal isn't a valid reason to disregard how good the actual card is), this item is completely worth the money, and i've recommended it to all my friends!

I have had a tastecard now for the last 3 years and last year alone I saved £300! I wouldn't be without it!! Recommended loads of my friends who have joined and between us I can't remember the last time we paid full price for a meal anywhere!! Absolutely fantastic!!
I got great service from Tastecard. It's such a great idea that I think has been tried and failed so many times but these guys have got it just about right!
I wasn't too sure on a couple of things before trying it out so I asked their social media guys and it was a decision then and there!
It's great :D

Easy way to save money
I just got a tastecard on the 3 month trial and used it at Pizza Express this week. They gave 50% off the food bill after noting down my taste card number. No fuss and no hassle and better than having to keep hold of vouchers.
I used the app to find the nearest restaurant and it even gave me walking directions. So far I've saved 11 quid and only used it on one meal. I will definitely sign up once the trial ends!

BEST DECISION I EVER MADE
After several recommendations from friends and family I finally decided to take the plunge and give tastecard a whirl.
BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!
I have saved well over £100 by using my tastecard when eating out in the past 3 months, and I don't eat out that often.
Just coming to the end of my first 3 months and there is no way that I am stopping being a member. I now know why my friends love this company so much. AND I found out that there is other things I can get deals on too, discounted cinema tickets.....ERM YES PLEASE!
I can't believe it has taken me so long to join. I can't wait to get out and about in 2016 and see how much I can save.
THANK YOU TASTECARD

"We have saved over a hundred pounds using our taste card, lots of restaurants take them!"
Sadly l have not been able to renew my tastecard this time due to being made redundant. But when l rang customer services it was so easy to cancel and l wasn't made to feel bad or pressurised into renewing my card. Now l think that was fantastic customer service. And as soon as l am back in work l will renew!
I think the Tastecard is a wonderful idea, I love it, you can dine out in some lovely restaurants and enjoy a delicious meal, and only pay half the price. We have already saved more than the card cost us, and we still have about 9 months to go.
A great night out with friends at the Drayton Manor Grill. Great Food, top class service by Will who was more than helpful. Would definitely go again...Thanks Tastecard
I've had this card for ages now and used it today for the first time. What an awesome save.. a++++
I love my tastecard! Take it everywhere.... I've saved £100's.
I've used mine at the weekend many times. I had a weekend away with my daughter and we had 50% off all breakfasts, 50% off afternoon tea, 50% off lunch and 2 for 1 on both our evening meals. A lovely Italian and the other a fantastic Chinese. I love it. Had mine 2 years and saved £132 in one weekend.
Have saved over £70 in 4 months!
Saved a great deal!
I have had one for three years now and I have saved a great deal of money ! Definitely would recommend.
Bring on the food!
Just invested in another Taste Card, bring on the food!
Another half price tea out with @tastecard #bargain #worthit
Saved £20.00 at Shack Bar & Grill with my @tastecard.
