Get through the cost-of-living crisis with these three coffee tips and freebies | The Sun

WE might be in a cost-of-living crisis but to ease the strain you can save and grab freebies at Costa Coffee.

Bean counters will love our tips on unlocking perks and making your cash go further.

AUTUMN TREATS: Have you tried Costa’s autumn-menu flavours yet?

Download the Costa Club app and scan it when buying a drink from the chain’s participating stores and express machines this Friday.

You will then get a voucher in the app to claim two drinks for £4 from its Maple Hazel or Gingerbread & Cream Latte range.

Head to the chiller cabinet for the cheapest items you can buy to qualify for the voucher, which are a bottle of Smart Water for around £1.85 or a Chilled Caramel Latte for about £1.95.


Three tips to make sure you don’t overspend on your broadband

Five ways you can lower your cooking costs with an air fryer

The Maple and Gingerbread drinks would normally cost upwards of £3.70 each, meaning you would save around £3.40 on two of them.

The Maple Hazel selection includes hot and iced coffees and hot chocolates, which all feature roasted hazelnut flavoured syrup and maple sauce, with a light whipped dairy topping and crunchy biscuit crumb.

DEALS ON MEALS: Rather than spending around £3.35 for a regular latte at Costa, you could pay £3 and have your lunch thrown in if you shop at certain Tesco stores.

You will need a Clubcard in order to get the supermarket’s meal deal for £3 instead of £3.50, which includes a drink, a snack and a wrap, pasty or salad.

Around 2,000 Tesco stores have Costa machines and you can get a hot drink as part of the deal.

DOES LOYALTY PAY?: Costa, like lots of coffee shops, has a loyalty scheme where you can collect points to earn free drinks, but is it worth it?

We crunched the numbers to find out who was the most generous. Costa was somewhere in the middle as you need to spend around £9.80 to qualify for a free drink.

At McDonald’s you could get a free hot drink after spending just £4.95, but at Starbucks you would have to spend £50.
