Here are our 6 ways to bag yourself a bargain...
One thing we love about Bristol is its independent cafes, bars and restaurant. Download the wriggle app for some amazing deals from the best Bristol's independents. They also advertise foodie events at discounted prices.
2. Student Beans
Food can be very expensive nowadays, especially when you’re eating out, and who doesn’t enjoy eating out every once in a while? As a student, you can create an account with ‘Student Beans’ where you’ll find loads of discounts on any food you fancy, e.g. 30% off at Pizza Express and 35% of Dominos
3. Too Good To Go
My personal favourite - To Good To Go sell 'Magic Bags' each day, which are filled with surplus food from restaurants, shops & cafes in Bristol. The food they sell would usually be thrown away at the end of the day but is perfectly safe to eat, not to mention delicious surprise (you don't know what you're getting). Download the app, support the food waste revolution and bag yourself a tasty treat, at the same time.
4. Your NUS card
A simple flash of your student card will be enough to get you a discount in many places, for example, Pizza Express, ZiZis, Las Iguanas & more. Whenever you go to a bar, restaurant or cafe, make sure you check if they offer student discounts. Many places in student areas such as the Triangle or Gloucester Road will offer these discounts. Some places will offer discounts at certain times or days of the week so look out for this too.
You can also get money off in supermarkets like the co-op using your NUS card.
The golden oldie of the discount world, but definitely worth taking a look at. If you fancy a meal out, they offer up some cracking discounts in both local and chain restaurants.
