I was hoping to win the annual card through MSE but I don't think I was successful - card is quite handy for the discounts.

I was fortunate to get a free annual membership from their earlier promotion - thanks to Beate!

I would recommend getting the free month if you can; as Tesco says, 'Every little helps'!! Their website is easy to navigate and find a restaurant with either 50% off the food bill or 2for1 meals.

Mmm, enjoy!!
Preferred cinemas: All Central London: APOLLO Piccadilly, EMPIRE Leicester Sq; ODEONS: Leicester Sq/Covent Garden/West End/Whiteleys/Panton St; VUE: West End/Fulham/Islington, CINEWORLD: Haymarket/Shaftesbury Ave; Brixton Ritzy,
Then: Westfield, o2, Clapham

I got an e-mail from "Time Out" today, advertising a one month trial, so I signed up, once I found no credit card details were required. My local paper ran this offer very recently, but I didn't proceed because in that case, you did have to enter card details, then cancel later. I was unsuccessful with the MSE offer and very annoyed about the waste of time - Taste London should have anticipated the level of demand and planned for it. What I would like to know is, how useful is it if you don't actually eat out in central London very often, but in the suburbs? Can anyone answer this, please? "Time Out" said it covered Pizza Express, but for months there have been 2-for-1 deals there anyway.

Yes I got the same Time Out email which is the link I have posted here.

If you didn't manage to win an annual membership with the MSE offer, you should automatically have got a month free membership anyway!

Can't say much about the suburbs but it's true - the restaurants I like to frequent have a lot of promotions anyway. I guess it's really worth it if you are into expensive restaurants and eat out a lot. For my occasional excursions to PizzaExpress, The Real Greek and La Tasca, 50% off vouchers will usually do. I plan to use my card though when some friends of mine come over in August and impress the hell out of them, LOL.

I won the annual one back in March. OH won a monthly one 2 weeks ago, hasn't received it either yet. As The Real Greek is only first visits, having a second card comes in handy, even if it is only for a month.
