Eat **** and get the price of the **** deducted from the furniture ****.

Now how do i convince the Mrs that this would be the perfect day out for our wedding anniversary;-)

I wonder what they class as a meal? I mean you could turn it into a mega feast if you buy everything you wany in one go. Unless they really mean 1 starter, 1 main, 1 side, 1 dessert, a drink and a coffee/tea/hot chocolate.

Otherwise a good way to feed your family. As long as you are buying something costing a few pounds in store.

Terms are very clear. Eg. If you bought 50 cans of juice at £1.50 each you'd get £75 off your shopping.

They are clear but it seems open to abuse. For instance you could feed all the homeless people in the area assuming you were buying something expensive in the store. Homeless charities could take homeless people, feed them; buy something to cover the cost of the meal and sell the item afterwards. Thereby overall not costing them much to provide food and drink.

It is interesting they haven't put a limit on restaurant spend in the T&Cs.

Child: I want to have my party in McDs
Parents: No we are taking you and your friends to Ikea. We need to buy a new bed, mattress and wardrobes. Don't worry you can all still have fries and dessert

I agree and I expect the restaurants will refuse the sale if you attempt to purchase vast amounts which are obviously not going to be consumed there and then. A published transaction/person limit would have at least made things easier for staff!

"Offer can only be redeemed once per customer, per purchase on the same day (the date on your IKEA Restaurant receipt)." - so can I got back the next day and do it again?

and next to that is an asterisk that takes you to the T&Cs that say "Offer entitles you to the value you spend in IKEA Restaurant off any home furnishing product in-store"

The word "meal" is not mentioned in the T&Cs at all

This seems much better than previous times when you had to redeem your voucher weeks after your restaurant visit.

Wonderful. Will pop in everyday.........

Free food? I'm on that faster than I'm on arsenal fan tv after they lose a game

It won't let me join with a family membership online.

I rang ikea as I wanted to confirm t&cs before embarrassing myself and the lady said this wasn't true. Then I went on their site and its there in black and white.
What I want/need to know is.....basically if I spent eg £30 in the restaurant after 4.30pm I would definitely get it off my purchase? ? So confused now

Offer valid in all stores excluding IKEA Warrington



Wonder why the Warrington store is excluded

Free food is my love, thanks, hot add.

Previous threads confirmed that IKEA stores all are franchise from IKEA themselves - some tax reason I am sure. That IKEA may not be owned by the owner of the rest of the UK IKEAs.

Cold as Warrington store not included.

Lol we'd be the perfect pair. My hub didn't think it was a good idea to eat at Ikea for his bday!

Damn, we're planning to go to the Warrington store this evening.

I would go to the Ashton-Under-Lyme store but then my wife would insist we went to Five Guys instead and it would end up costing even more. oO

Can I book you for childrens party? I don't get the joke but I'm sure 15 three year olds will.
No seriously I need someone to entertain at the party and the piñata has got lost in the post but we have an old broom handle we could improvise with.

the beef rib is really tasty, if anyone interested.

What a great idea, mark the catalogue codes, get all the kids and other half together and a friend/s, buy them all dinner at IKEA and you go shopping whilst they eat, get discount and get everyone to go home. Not a bad way to entertain all mid week one evening & you get your IKEA purchases (and a hot dog on the way home lol). Not that I would do the 120 miles round trip but handy for those with a Ikea closer. Heat.

He might not like the idea he's getting nowt either now though! X)

I don't know but if I got the offer to eat at ikea and a voucher to spend there of the same amount I would be quite happy #smallthings


I'd just make sure I 'sampled' quite a few things off the menu
