The neat new Buy One Get One Free app


In this day and age the big thing about going out to eat is excellent quality, and good value. With the cost of living going through the roof, when a good deal is presented to you, you should take it. As Frank Underwood  says… “It's so refreshing to work with someone who'll throw a saddle on a gift horse rather than look it in the mouth.”

At Food24 we rate good quality food and service excellence above all... and we also like to saddle up that gift horse for our readers. So when we got wind of The Entertainer last year we took notice.

Firstly they came out with a funky green book full of awesome Buy One Get One Free offers. So simple and so effective. You just go to one of the restaurants featured in the book, tear out a Buy One Get One Free offer and hand it to the waiter when you ask for your bill. Off comes one main course item, and you can use up to 4 offers per table of 8. We saved R525 at a friend’s birthday dinner the other night. (It all went straight back into the bar of course, but that is a whole other story).

And then came the app

And now, as with everything that works well, is simple to use and convenient, comes the app.

If you have an iPhone, Windows, Android or Blackberry 10 device you can download a free trial period with limited offers for 2 weeks. I have the app on my phone and it is just so easy to use, seriously. It is currently available to buy (if you love it after the 2 week free trial) for Cape Town or Joburg for R495. The savings you make with it will cover that in no time. And there’s a nifty savings calculator in the app that just keeps track of it all.

The other nice thing about The Entertainer App is that it is linked to Google maps so you can find deals near you. There are over 650 outlets in Cape Town  and Joburg  with over 1475 offers.

Definitely try the 2-week free trial. No obligations, and you will see for yourself how cool it is. If you don’t believe me, watch this video.

And right now, you can win one!

We are giving away 60 apps  (worth R495 each) over the next month. Its super-easy to enter and we pick 2 winners every day!

So download the free trial and enter the competition and tweet us @food24 and @EntertainerZA which Cape Town or Joburg restaurants are your favourite on the list!

Yours in savings,
