Nando's fans can get free chicken this month – but there's a catch | The Sun

NANDO'S fans can enjoy free chicken this month -but be careful before you order because there's a catch.

The restaurant chain is known for its peri-peri style chicken and has over 450 restaurants operating within the UK.

Nando's has gained a loyal army of fans who flock to the restaurants for bargain priced spicy (or not so spicy) chicken.

Customers can sign up for the Nando’s rewards card, which allows you to earn points, or chillies, which turn into "free peri-peri". 

And a select few can bag an even bigger bargain, for a limited time.

You can get a free quarter chicken or a starter – but you'll need to be a student to be eligible.

The freebie is worth £4.75 – the price of a quarter chicken.

Or you could could chose to get starter of halloumi sticks and dip, humous with Peri drizzle or sweet potato wedges for £4.25

Diners will need to prove they are a student who has just received the results of their A-Levels, GCSEs or equivalents (BTEC, Scotland Highers, or National 5’s).

To get the discount, you will need to visit a Nando's restaurant, either to eat-in or walk-in collect for takeaway, and spend over £7 on food.

From ordering family platters to coming prepared with gift cards,you can keep more of your well-earned cash in your pocket at the restaurant.

If you are a Costco member, you can buy £40 worth of gift cards for £34.99 to use at Nando's – which means you're saving yourself just over £5.

Ordering a platter can help you to save £10.

The Family Platter at Nando's costs £46.50 and feeds up to six people, including two whole chickens and five large sides.

Budget buster Charlotte Jessop, who runs the money saving blog  Looking After Your Pennies, says she saves £10.45 doing this instead of ordering individual meals for her and her family.

Tubs of "Perinaise"  will set you back 65p at the restaurant – and as it's likely that you'll order at least two, the extra cost all adds up.

But you can avoid forking out extra by making your own version in the restaurant.

One Nando's fan has revealed that by adding medium sauce to a few sachets of mayo, which you'll usually find by the cutlery, you'll end up with something that tastes pretty similar.
