Friends dining out at a restaurant

Dine out for less with dining discounts.

Christmas time is one of the busiest periods in most people's social calendars, and the price of dining out with friends and family soon starts to tot up. But with a tastecard's dining discounts in your pocket, you can tuck into 2 for 1 meals or 50% off food at 1000s of restaurants across the UK and save yourself an average of £19 every time you dine out – that's another Christmas present accounted for! 

It's worth noting that some restaurants do have restrictions throughout December, so it's always best to give them a quick call and check they're still running the promotions. 

Family at the cinema eating snacks

Make entertainment more affordable with movie savings.

There's nothing quite like a trip to the cinema at Christmas. All the festive flicks are on the big screen, and it's the perfect place to head for a family day out. But after all your cinema tickets are purchased – and, of course, the popcorn and Ice Blasts – your wallet can be left feeling a little thin. Luckily, those of you with a tastecard can enjoy up to cinema ticket discounts at the UK's most-loved chains! You can save an average of £5 per cinema trip, giving you a little extra to add to your Christmas fund.

Cut down on your catering costs with pizza delivery deals.

Got a big Christmas get-together coming up? Stock the feast for half the price with 50% off pizza delivery from the three biggest pizza-players in the country: Pizza Hut, Domino's, and Papa John's. Pizza is the perfect finger food for any buffet, and there are tons of options to suit any diet. You've got the good old cheese & tomato for the veggies, meat feasts for the carnies, tune-topped pizzas for the veggies, and tons of vegan and gluten-free options too. And with a minimum saving of at least £15 per order, you can feed all your guests for less and stack some cash for Christmas Day.
