Tastecard do the same; luckily for me they took it from PayPal so I disputed it.

Bunch of scammers.

Apparently you're meant to receive at least 3 notifications to cancel so they breach their own T&Cs

Stay well clear

Just cancelled my "soon-to-expire" membership as my wife has taken out the £1 deal for the next three months, I was a little apprehensive after what some have said, but it went through fine and I have my cancellation code. So long as you cancel in accordance with their T's&C's i.e. not too late, you should be fine. Took a screenshot of it just in case though
Edited by: "a_user" 1st Feb 2016

Just make sure you cancel the direct debit with your bank or the paypal authorisation & it should be OK

It's certainly not the easiest to cancel... I ended up with 12 months … It's certainly not the easiest to cancel... I ended up with 12 months that I didn't want due to them simply failing to heed my cancellation request, eventually decided that my time in sorting it wasn't worth getting back the amount I'd paid.



I had exactly the same problem and outcome. Personally, I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole again.

Snob manager at our local flaming grill got annoyed as we used the card quite a lot, she then told us that we could only have it on main meals and nothing else even though it states all food on the app.

Hi,

Update,

Flaming Grill have put out T&Cs that the 50% cannot be used between the 18th of December and 3rd of January 2016. I went recently and they said that the option is completely locked currently. Therefore go after these dates and they should be able to knock 50% off between Monday and Thursday. If it does not work request to see the duty manager as they should be aware of this offer.

Hi furthermore.. I went myself tonight to the Flaming Grill and they would not give me it either. Some T&CS which are not on the above state the 50% cannot be applied on bank holidays and other special occasion days and between the 18th of December and 3rd of January. I tried to get it as it did not say on the site on the above but they said that the option on their till is completely blocked off. Best bet is to wait until new year and try after the 3rd of Jan. All the best.

I called today for cancellation. They switched off auto-renewal option, and gave a reference number as 2016011146....
No email confirmation?

Anyone got email confirmation?.. also is the cancellation reference same as "Cancellation Date Followed by Membership Number"?

just rung them and it's as easy as pie - selected option 5 and asked to cancel the membership. gave my name and membership number and the man i was talking to told me he'd switched off the auto-renewal for the account and that it would still run through to the 11th of Feb, but it would then automatically end then so all is good

didn't even ask me why i wanted to cancel as well.

They'll give you a card that expires 1 year and 3 months inclusive of the 3 months free trial, towards the end of the 3 months you have to send it back to them otherwise you get charged as the cards valid for longer than the 3 months free period, you must send the card back at your own cost and tbh you ought to send it back recorded at the very least to cover yourself if it gets lost in transit, otherwise you end up with a nasty bill for £69.99

Gourmet society are best avoided. Had a 'free' card for a couple of months - tried to cancel before the payments kicked in ... They were v squirmy and made cancelling a nightmare. Started down trading standards route and only then got it cancelled....

Gourmet Society is best avoided. They sign you up and make it extremely difficult to cancel. Stockport Trade standard has a standard pre-printed complaint form especially for them.

best i can see is £44.95 but no mention of the wine

Just won 1 of these at work and not really many places where i live either.

Remember to cancel your membership 15 days before expiry as they sting you for £39 for another 12months! I've just been had!
The cinema tickets are useless too. Think I save around £3 on 2 tickets and they send them through the post! Some of the deals can be got through O2 offers etc.. But some are half descent. Any chain pub or restaurant are typically 25% off but sometimes don't include Fridays or weekends.

If you are willing to pay for membership tastecard has much better options



I guess its horses for courses!! I have had a TC previously and found GS to have better options for what we wanted. TC dropped a couple of larger chains towards the end of our membership including Bella Italia if I recall correctly.

I guess these cards are only as good as the restaurants you use, and also whether they stay as members.

Pizza Express got silly for a while and said you had to pre-book. We went to one that was two thirds empty, mentioned at the door we had a card but said it couldnt be accepted as there was not a booking!! We booked for 10 minutes time and it was accepted - Crazy!!
