This week's discounts, deals and freebies


Freebie Friday

Welcome to Freebie Friday, a weekly round up of the very best discounts, deals and freebies around. This week we have free glasses, free theatre tickets, free days out, and discounts on fish dishes and Italian cuisine.

Although, be warned.... one comes with unusual strings attached

Days out

If you buy the Telegraph this Saturday or Sunday it'll set you back £2, but inside is a voucher for 2 for 1 on a number of days out. There are 100 to pick from, some of which would otherwise cost up to £30 a head. Each one has different terms and conditions, but it's worth an outlay of £2 as you stand to make such a big saving. The vouchers have to be used by 24 March this year.


Glasses wearers have spent a small fortune over the years, but here's a voucher that could mean that in future they cost you a smaller fortune. Until 17 February, Glasses Direct is offering 30% off frames, plus free delivery and a free second pair when you spend £55. Just enter the code 30GDSAVE at the checkout.

Discounted fish dishes

You can get 25% off your food bill at Loch Fyne restaurants, in return for filling in a few details. You need to complete your details here, and print off the voucher. You can eat any day - but Fridays and Saturdays after 6pm are excluded. You can pick from the a la carte menu or the specials menu and you'll pay full price for drinks. However, you have until 28 February to redeem the voucher, so you may well find a time to suit you.

Bargain Italian

If you're planning pizza or pasta before the end of the month, it may be worth filling in your details at the Strada website. You'll also need details of the restaurant you're planning to eat in, and then the website will tell you how much of a discount you will be entitled to.

It's worth considering because the most popular offer is £10 off when you buy any two main courses - valid every day except Friday and Saturday.


Believe it or not, if you go along to any performance of Spamalot (at the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End) dressed as a knight, you show up an hour in advance and there are spare tickets available, then you can get in for free.

You have to make an effort though, and have at least four accessories including: a helmet, a hood, chain mail, a shield, gauntlets, a tunic, a tabard or a cape. The staff have the right to let you in if you fall short on the official list but look convincing enough - so it's worth making an effort. Alternatively, if you have been knighted you don't have to dress up but you'll need to take ID.

The show runs until November, and you'll get whatever tickets are available. Given that they range between £15 and £56 it's a great bargain.
