MoneySavingExpert reveals the best day to get takeaway deals from McDonald's, Pizza Hut and Domino's

STAYING in is the new going out thanks to lockdown and now MoneySavingExpert has revealed the best day to get a takeaway bargain from your favourite chain restaurant.

The consumer site has revealed which days are best to get a bargain burger or price-friendly pizza from some of your favourite chains.

If you’re looking for a weekend treat, you might be disappointed as there are less promotional offers to be bagged over these days, MoneySavingExpert says.

But you can munch for less during the weekdays, which is when more offers are available.

Take note that you might not be able to use other promotional codes on top of these offers, and you should factor in delivery costs.

We’ve got in touch with all the chains and takeaway sites listed to check the deals and will update you with more information as soon as we can.

Here’s when the best deals are to be had from Monday to Friday.


What better way to kick the Monday blues than with lashings of cheese and dough.

And it looks like pizza fans should circle the start of the week in their diaries as one of the best days to take advantage of a Pizza Hut deal.

You can get a large pizza for £9.99 as part of the chain’s “Monday Madness” deal.

If you’re more of a Maccies fan, then you could make the most of the restaurant’s Wrap of the Day offer.

On Monday’s you can get The Sweet Chilli Chicken One for £1.99 instead of it’s usual price of £2.99.

You’ll get a crispy chicken breast, sweet chilli sauce, mayo, lettace and cucumber in a tortilla wrap.

For £3.49 you can make it a meal and get a medium drink and a medium side, which would usually set you back £4.89.

Or you could head over to get a Burger King Whopper meal for £4.49, which would usually cost £6.79.

As part of the deal you’ll get a drink, side and a Whopper burger, which is a beef patty topped with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, pickles, ketchup and onions sandwiched between a sesame seed bun.


If you head over to Just Eat on Tuesdays, you can get 20% off as part of it’s “Cheeky Tuesday” deal.

You’ll be able to get the money off at selected restaurants  if you spend at least £15.

Remember, you’ll still have to pay for delivery costs though which could vary depending on where you’re ordering to.

And there’s a good deal to be had at Pizza Hut, Papa John’s and Domino’s, where you can get two pizzas for the price of one.

Domino's told The Sun that as well as its Two For Tuesday deal, it offers a "range of local deals throughout the UK" that you can find online or via its app.

Over at Maccies, the Wrap of the Day is The BBQ & Bacon Chicken One.

You’ll get crispy chicken breast strips, bacon, BBQ sauce, mayo, tomato and lettuce in a tortilla wrap.

It’s £1.99, or £3.49 for a meal deal.

And at Burger King, you can still get a Whopper meal deal for £4.49 instead of the usual £6.79.


To get you through the last half of the week, head to McDonald’s or Burger King to get your meal deals.

On Wednesdays, the Wrap of the Day at Maccies is The Sweet Chilli Chicken One again. 

Like Monday, you can get it for £1.99, or £3.49 if you make it a meal.

At Burger King, you can get a Whopper burger for £1.99 as part of the chain’s Whopper Wednesday promotion.


If you order through Deliveroo on this day, you’ll be able to get 20% off selected takeaways as part of the takeaway delivery service’s Tasty Thursdays offer.

You’ll have to spend over £15 to get the money off.

And you’ll have to pay for delivery too.

Meanwhile at Maccies, the Wrap of the Day (like on Tuesdays) is The BBQ & Bacon Chicken One.

Again, you can get it for £1.99, or order a meal deal for £3.49.

Remember, Burger King is flogging its Whopper meal for £4.49 instead of £6.79 on Thursdays too.

How to get discounts and deals

KNOWING what the best available offers are for your favourite takeaways can be a little confusing.

Here's our top tips for keeping on top of discounts and deals:

Check out voucher websites before you buy

  • There's always a chance of bagging a discount on your favourite pizza chain
  • If you go on to Latest Deals – a website dedicated to discount codes – you can hunt to see if there's a promotion you can take advantage
  • Other discount code sites include Vouchercodes, which can also help you save – up to 50 per cent – on some of your favourites chains, including Zizzi's and Pizza Hut.

Sign up for apps and get FREE food

  • If you download apps for your favourite chains, you might be in for some free treats
  • For example, KFC is offering free chicken wings through its app

Save your receipts and bus tickets for discounts

  • On Transport for London busses you can collect bus tickets and receipts which have McDonald's – and other fast food chain savings – printed on them.
  • However, it's important to note that under lockdown rules you should only be making essential journeys

Sign up for newsletters

  • To keep up with the latest deals from your favourite chain, it's best to sign up for a newsletter.
  • Pizza Hut offers a newsletter, as well as McDonald's


You can bring in the weekend in style with these deals from McDonald’s and Burger King.

As like any day of the week apart from Wednesdays, you can get a Whopper meal from Burger King for £4.49 instead of £6.79.

And the Wrap of the Day at Maccies is The Sweet Chilli Chicken One again, which you can get for £1.99 (or it’s £3.49 as part of a deal).

The Queen has raked in rental profits from eight Maccies branches and seven Nando's on her land.

And here's how to make your own McDonald's, Greggs, KFC and Nando's classics at home.

Burger King has recently changed its logo – but some fans think it looks the same as the chain's 90s version.
