13 actually quite great #TubeStrike discounts

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.

7. Get 25 percent off Camino tapas

Quote SAUCE while booking a table at any Camino joint for a delicious discount. It also works at the bar.

8. Complimentary punch at Cahoots

You just need to show your Oyster card tonight!

9. Free showers!

Show your Oyster Card at a Fitness First club tomorrow and you'll be able to shower or train in the gym for free. Use the hashtag #FFKeepMoving for more deets.

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…

Get a £20 discount on a detoxing colonic at Feel Good Balham tomorrow.

That's good shit.

UPDATE: Here are few more just-announced offers… 

13. Eat cheap BBQ

All Blue's Kitchen's mains and burgers will be the price of a return tube journey (£5.80) when you show your Oyster card at the Camden or Shoreditch restaurants. 

14. Free coffee!

Show this tweet at Strada to get a free Italian brew until midnight tonight.

15. Half-price hair cuts

This is such a welcome list of discount offers for all those who are affected by the Tube strike and could not work from home, but stuck in central London and wondering if there was any special discount offers. 


Oh! and by the way Thanks for letting us all know it is the Blue Kitchen. That looks delicious.

Where can I buy the meal in the image at the top of this post?

@Emma B Looks like Hotbox to me, which is in/near Spitalfields.

"trivialise" the importance of the strikes?  what about all the low paid workers on zero hours contracts who cannot get to work and have few or little rights?  I love the article though; but I am also mindful this strike is hitting the poorest workers.

Thank you, Time Out, for not joining the union bashing, and actually putting a positive spin on the strike. Tomorrow, I'll be celebrating workers' rights, cycling and free chocolate.

Another series of reasons why the strikes are a good thing. God bless the unions. 


Myopic commuters cursing those TFL staff making a stand should remember that they'd be taking the tube to work on a Saturday too, if it wasn't for the tenacious union folk who abolished the six-day week.


Just walk across town instead: it'll give you all the time to think about someone other than yourself.
