I've used the taste card for years. The first year i foolishly paid the full membership for me and my partner. Since then i got savvy, i do the £1 for 3 month thing or 4 months for free. I must admit, i do use the meerkat movies for cinemas, but use the taste card more for meals etc. Cancellations: Everyone is right with the auto renewal thing. It is annoying, but providing you add it into your diary for 2 days before you are okay. Auto renewal: Additionally if you do the cancellation online, in the Reason drop down, you can select "do not auto renew". Which i presume just makes sure it doesn't get charged. Speakers: Do not be fooled by the offer, they are cheapy 10 Euro things. Stark Bluetooth® Speaker Sample
cinema tickets are 40% off not BOGOF and never have been. Their database was compromised earlier this year, meaning we all had to get new credit cards and cineworld has disappeared from their cinema offering, making it less desirable. It's not a bad deal if you eat out regularly or go to the cinema regularly and there is a brand near you, but there are other equally as good products that cost less eg gourmet society, free with some bank accounts, meerkats as you mention, who now also do the 2 for 1 meals and there are always vouchers to be had on the internet. Most restaurants to not let you use the card on Friday or Saturdays, special days and some bank holidays and for the entire month of December, so it's effectively 11 months. As long as you will save more than the cost and couldn't do it for less than £34.99 using another deal, then it's still useful.
Not free. Its a deal since you need to buy the Tastecard membership
I use it for the cimema all the time. It’s sik
Personally I think its a great product! There are so many more restaurants on it and you also get a much better cinema offering 7 days a week. Their customer services always have been helpful with us as my mrs cancelled hers. Save well over the cost of membership each month! I paid £34.99 without the speaker! Trust pilot scores are pretty good!
