Tastecard trial + £5 Pizza Express gift card for just £1

Uncategorized

I’ll keep this post short: you can get a Tastecard 2 month trial for just £1 and you’ll also get a FREE £5 Pizza Express gift card! It’s well worth getting but if you do DON’T FORGET TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE THE END OF THE FREE TRIAL.

The gift card is sent with the Tastecard welcome pack. I ordered mine on Sunday and it arrived today. I will cancelling mine in the next few days as you’re still able to use the card until it expires. It’s a foolproof way to avoid being charged the thirty-something pounds that a normal membership costs!
