Hello, and welcome back to Life Hacks with Nicola. Today’s topic: How To Get Free Stuff. More specifically, I’m here to help you get a free cocktail this weekend. Let’s begin.
Before you go anywhere, make sure you have the ENTERTAINER app. It’s filled with loads of 2-for-1 offers, which means you and a friend can actually go out, buy a cocktail (or beer, glass of wine etc.), and get one completely free. Got it? Cool, continue.
Not in the mood for a free cocktail? How about the perfect date night! Check out our list of Romantic Restaurants in South Africa.
#1 | Bring a buddy
Because it’s never cool to drink alone. Let’s be real. Not much else to say here, really.
Plus, you need two or more people to redeem a 2-for-1 offer, guys.
#2 | Pre-game with food, somewhere else
We’re responsible adults (in theory). Which means we should be drinking responsibly. So, please do the right thing and eat something before you go out. To make it easier, the App (the one I told you to get, remember?) has plenty of buy one get one free food offers at some pretty delicious restaurants.
Remember, you can use one offer for every two people at one spot. Which means either one Cheers OR one food offer at a time. Please be adventurous and visit a different restaurant if you want to use a food offer before you go out for a drink. For more info, click here.
#3 | Pick a spot
There are so many awesome watering holes out there, and I know it’s daunting when you’re faced with the decision of where to go. To make it easier, pick up your phone, open your ENTERTAINER, scroll down to Cheers, and have a look at what’s available. You’ll find something you fancy in no time.
The ENTERTAINER even has a nifty little map feature to help you decide on a spot near you. All you have to do is tap on ‘Map’ in the top right-hand corner, and presto!
#4 | Be nice to the bartender
This one’s super important, but often forgotten. You catch more bugs with honey. Or do you catch flies? Whatever the saying is, just be nice, ok? Bartenders are people too. And you’re about to get a free drink, so you’ll be happy and friendly anyway.
Remember to use words/phrases like hello, how are you, please, and thank you.
#5 | Let them know you’re using the App
Now that you’ve made a new friend, let them know that you’ll be using the ENTERTAINER BEFORE you ask for the bill. While you sip on your G&T or free cocktail (depending on what the offer says), open the App, tap on the offer, and hand it over to the waiter/bartender.
BOOM, the cheapest drink will be completely FREE.
This is not a joke. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A JOKE. You can actually get a free cocktail, beer, or glass of wine this weekend if you play your cards – and your app – right.
It takes time and practice to master, but you’ll be a pro ‘ENTERTAINER’ in no time.
