Tesco is giving away 200,000 free café breakfasts – but you have to act fast

Tesco is giving away free café breakfasts to just under 200,000 members of the Armed forces this Sunday (June 26).

All serving Armed Forces personnel, around 159,000 regulars and 32,000 reservists, can present their MOD90 identification card at any Tesco café to get the free grub.

The offer is for a full cooked breakfast, vegan cooked breakfast, sausage bap or a bacon bap.

Tesco is launching the deal to mark the Armed Forces Day, which takes place the day before the offer on Saturday, June 25.

All 295 Tesco cafés across the England, Scotland and Wales will be running the promotion,

The deal is limited to one free breakfast per cardholder. You don’t need to purchase anything in stores to get the free breakfast.

Tesco is main sponsor of the Armed Forces Day event in Scarborough.

Ashwin Prasad, Chief Product Officer at Tesco and Director Sponsor of the Armed Forces Network said: “We’re proud to be able to support National Armed Forces Day in Scarborough which will celebrate the tremendous contribution that the armed forces make to our country.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for store colleagues in Scarborough, and across the country, to celebrate.

“Everyone loves a free breakfast and we thought it was a gesture that showed how much we value members of the Armed Forces.”

Rhys Little, Chair of the Armed Forces Network at Tesco, said: “We’ve got a long history of getting behind those who have been in the forces.

“We’ve received the Gold award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme twice now (in 2016 and 2020), and we were also the first retailer to sign the Armed Forces Covenant in 2014.

“We also do our best to give anyone leaving the army, navy, or RAF a chance to forge a new career.”

More than 170 people have reported the scam – which emails recipients and claims they are in for a chance of winning a £500 Tesco gift card.

“You have been selected to join our loyalty programme for FREE!” The email reads. “It only takes you a minute to get access to this fantastic prize.”

However, to get “one step closer” to claiming the prize, the scam asks people to log into their Paypal account or confirm their personal details.
