Have an O2 mobile? Get free coffee, popcorn and cookies!


If you’ve got a mobile from O2 (or have one of their SIM cards to register the application), you’re entitled to some free stuff, thanks to their Priority Moments program (available as an app for Android and iOS, and as a web app for Blackberry and Windows Phone).

Their deals aren’t usually that great (the last good one was from HMV before they went into administration…), but they seem to have quite a few good ones to celebrate Easter. There was another offer for some free chocolate from Hotel Chocolat (ended today, unfortunately), but there’s a few more available to use up this week.

Free Coffee from Caffé Nero (valid until 26th March, so be quick!)

You get a free regular coffee (or hot chocolate or tea) from Caffé Nero with this offer – there’s no minimum spend, so just go into branch and grab your free drink.

The codes appear to be unique, plus there’s an animation on the bottom of the screen, so taking a screenshot isn’t going to work (not that you’d try that, of course!)

Free Popcorn, Nachos or a Hot Dog at Odeon (valid until 1st May)

You can get a free large popcorn, hot dog or nachos at Odeon with this offer – whilst there’s no minimum spend, I’m going to assume you’re probably going to be buying a cinema ticket whilst you’re there (unless you really like cinema food).

Two free brownie cookies at Millie’s Cookies (unknown)

I got an email with an offer for free brownie cookies from Millie’s Cookies, but it doesn’t seem to have appeared in the app yet. Hopefully it’ll turn up soon!

Not on O2?

Even if you’re not on O2, you can still use the Priority Moments app if you’ve got a Pay and Go SIM card from them: just install the app and validate it using the number you get texted (you might need to put the O2 SIM card in and install it, or sideload it if you’re using an Android phone, they’ve restricted the download to phones on O2, but once it’s installed, you can install it on new phones through Google Play). I’m not sure if you’ve got to have topped up before activating.

You can get a free sim through Top CashBack, and get £5.05 cashback when you top up £10: or for an even better deal you can get a Nokia 100 (in pink, the black ones have sold out) for £1 when you top up £10 with PrePayMania (visit Top CashBack before you checkout to get £5.05 cashback on top!)

30% off at Wasabi


There’s currently 30% off all food at Wasabi, Old Broad Street until 18th January 2013 to celebrate their reopening – great for a working lunch!

No voucher needed, just turn up.

It’s been fairly busy over the past week, but the queues move pretty quickly.

Deal of the Week – HMV


There’s currently a great deal at HMV, which you can get by combining the Amex Foursquare deal and the O2 Priority Moments app.

When you check in to HMV with Foursquare, you’ll get a £5 credit on your Amex account when you spend £20, and there’s currently a deal to get a £5 voucher for every £20 you spend.

Combine the two, and you’ll get £10 off your £20 purchase (admittedly, you’ll have to spend the £5 voucher later).

You’ll need to be on O2 to get the app, and you need to update to the latest version to see the deal (it’s listed under Xmas on Priority Moments if the advent calendar isn’t working properly!)

UK Amex Deals


Edit: Updated with the latest Foursquare deals (01/12/2012)

There’s currently quite a few Amex deals around: I’ve tried to make a list of them here. Many of them are listed on Cardmember Offers, but there’s some that are missing:


  • Valid until 31/12/2012
  • You need to have an Xbox 360 connected to Live, register online with Amex, and enter your activation code into your Xbox, then add the offers using your console
  • One code per account
  • £10 free for registering
  • Spend £10, get £10 back at Cineworld
  • Spend £50, get £25 back at Topman
  • Spend £50, get £25 back at Carphone Warehouse
  • Spend £50, get £25 back at Dixons Travel
  • If you have Halo 4, get £25 for completing the game on Normal or above
  • If you have Halo 4, spend £50, get £25 back at Currys PC World when you play Spartan Ops
  • You can use each offer once per card


  • To use the foursquare offers, you need to register an account with foursquare, sync your foursquare account with Amex, check in at the location using a mobile app, and activate the offer by checking in and selecting the special, and tap “add to card”
  • The Shop Small offers are on the app, but you don’t need to add them if you’ve already activated them. You can view them on the mobile app, which is helpful though. The map will also include other offers – check before you purchase
  • You can use these in conjunction with any other offer, so long as the spend on your Amex is over the threshold – e.g. Gap 30% off promotion (expired on 19/11/2012)
  • Spend £25 at Harvey Nichols, get £25 back (until 31/12/2012)
  • Spend £10 at Starbucks, get £5 back (until 13/02/2013) – best idea is to load it onto your Starbucks card, so you can spend an exact amount and get your loyalty stars

  • Valid until 30/11/2012
  • Spend £5 at Shop Small merchants, get £5 back – register, then check the map
  • You can use these in conjunction with any other offer, so long as the spend on your Amex is over the threshold – e.g. Taste Card, Vouchers, etc.
  • It may or may not work at multiple branches of the same location: customer services has told me that it shouldn’t, but some people are saying that it does
  • The map isn’t great, but you can also get a list
  • You can also use the foursquare map, but it’ll also include other offers – check before you purchase
  • You should get a confirmation email within a few minutes of your transaction going through
