7 ways to cheap and tasty fast food

Get your burger on with these fast food tips to get the best for the little cash.


Get social

Be sure to follow your favourite (local) restaurants on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) where vouchers and giveaways can happen rather regularly.

Download apps

Grab the official apps for the likes of Burger King, KFC, etc. for more money saving deals and vouchers. Plus, check out the O2 Priorities App which often has deals and freebies for food too.

BurgerKing vouchers

BurgerKing vouchers

BurgerKing makes a load of vouchers available online every month from its website HERE. Print off, cut up and use in store!

Get fresh food

Customise your meals to get it freshly made. It will take a few minutes longer but you won't get a cold burger that's been sat there for a while.

Order your chips without salt and you'll also get them straight out of the fryer.

Hack the Menu

'Hack in the Menu' is still very much a US thing but some UK stores do participate. A favourite and easy one to try is the 'Poor Man's Big Mac'. In McDonalds, ask for a standard cheeseburger or double cheeseburger but with Big Mac Sauce rather than the standard Ketchup and Mustard.

Free delivery

Oh yes, fast food free delivery is coming. Slowly, but it's coming. Burger King has rolled out its BK delivers service to eight areas across the UK with plans for a bigger roll out later this year (2015).

Taste Tests

Online fast food comparison and ordering website Hungry House offers 20% discounts on your first order with participating local eateries as part of its 'Taste Tests' offer.
