13 actually quite great #TubeStrike discounts

Written by

We have mixed feelings about #tubestrikeoffers. On the one hand, we don't want to trivialise the importance of the strikes for the employees involved. On the other, we love free chocolate. Here are some of the best discounts and freebies available for you over the next 36 hours.

1. Free tea and homemade biscuits

Head to the Goodge Street window of the Newman Street Tavern to pick up free tea and biscuits between 7.30am and 5.30pm on Thursday. Only downside: you have to say the words 'hashtag Tfl tea' to get it. Ew.

2. Free Cadbury's chocolate delivered to your office

App Gett is using the tube strikes as the prime-time to advertise its fleet of motorbike-driving ‘knowledge boys’. They'll deliver you a free sharing bag of Cadbury Twirl Bites to Shoreditch, Clerkenwell, the City, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Belgravia and Kensington between 10am and 3pm.

3. Half-price pizza

Worship Street's newest pizza joint Pizzabuzz is offering 50 percent off pizzas for anyone who tweets @PizzaBuzz using the #tubestrike hashtag. You just have to show your tweet at the till on Wednesday and Thursday.

4. Get 50 percent off at Salt Yard Group

Get half-price food at Salt Yard, Opera Tavern, Dehesa or Ember Yard when you quote 'tube strike' while making a booking. The offer's valid until 11.30pm on Thursday.

5. £3 pints at The Big Easy

Switch commuter stress for drinks with mates. The Covent Garden joint's doing £3 pints of Meantime Brewery lager, £5 slushies and £5 bar bites.

6. Get 20 percent off Dirty Bones deliveries

Order a plate of American comfort food via app Deliveroo and you'll get 20 percent off until tomorrow evening.

8. Complimentary punch at Cahoots

10. Free rickshaws!

App Payfriendz is offering free rickshaw rides when you download the app and use it to message the contact #SurviveTheStrike.

11. Cheap AddisonLees

The cab firm isn't going to charge when journey time is extended by #tubestrike traffic.

12. And our personal favourite…
