Nandos is Giving Free Food to Teenagers With Exam Results Again, Starting Tomorrow in Scotland

By Tom Pritchard on at

It's summer, which means it's hot, painful to go outside, and we're on the brink of multiple news outlets publishing quotes claiming A Levels are too easy because teenagers can't possibly be that clever. Because everyone knows that Gen Z has had their brains rotted by Snapchat, Instagram, and all those other things that the loudest oldies don't fully understand. Summer also means Nandos is back to giving away free food to A Level students.

Results season is upon us, With Scottish Highers arriving tomorrow and A level results coming next Thursday (16th). Both of those days are unique, because anyone sporting a set of official grades (no matter how good or bad) can go to Nandos and claim free food. On offer is a quarter chicken or a Firestarter provided you also spend £7 on something else. So it's not completely free (that would be too good to be true), but it's better than paying full price.

There are some other catches too. For one the offer is only available on results day, and only if you come in with proof of your results. Those results have to have been awarded in 2018 as well, so no digging out your old sixth form transcript in the hopes of grabbing yourself some free food. You're also only able to redeem the offer once, and need to bring ID to prove that they're your results, not some poor sap you mugged on his way out of college.  If you don't want to eat in house, the terms and conditions state that you can redeem this on a takeaway order placed in person or over the phone. So no trying to use Deliveroo as a loophole.

Word of warning for the English and Welsh, since Nandos seems to have got the date wrong. The website claims the offer is only valid on 17th, which is the day after results day, so it's probably a good idea to phone ahead and double check. The Scots don't have that issue, because the date seems to be correct.
