No codes are required and customers can get the discounted deliveries as many times as they want. 

Not all the branches from these chains are partnered with Just Eat, so be sure to check your postcode first either online or through the app.

Discount codes with Uber eats

Bargain hunters are swapping Uber Eats discount codes on the hotukdeals forum to bag money off their orders.

For example, users reckon you can get between 30% and 50% off your order if it's from an independent restaurant.

The offers are valid up until 11.55 p.m. on February 23, excludes delivery fees and are all capped at £15.

However, it's not clear if the codes – which you can view here – are area specific or sent to individual users to claim.

The offer is also not valid on any basket that includes alcohol or tobacco products.

To be eligible for the promotion, you must apply the discount codes at the checkout before you complete your order. 

Each code can only be redeemed for a maximum of 10,000 users so be quick if you want to make the most of the deals.

Free Subway cookies through Deliveroo 

You can get three free cookies when you order a foot-long sub at Subway this weekend as part of its Valentine's Day promotion.

The offer is available from February 12 to February 14 if you order through Deliveroo. 

Your freebies will automatically be added to your basket when you place an order through the delivery app.

But not every branch is taking part in the offer – you can find out if your local is doing the deal here.

How to save money on pizza

TAKEAWAY pizzas taste great but they can hit you hard on your wallet. Here are some tips on how to save on pizza:

Cashback websites – TopCashback and Quidco will pay you to order your pizza through them. They're paid by retailers for every click that comes to their website from the cashback site, which eventually trickles down to you. So you'll get cashback on orders placed through them.

Discount codes – Check sites like VoucherCodes for any discount codes you can use to get money off your order.

Make you own topping – One savvy customer noticed that Domino's charges up to 70p MORE for pizzas on it's menu compared to ordering the same one through the "create your own" option. It's worth trying out to see if it makes a difference before you place your next order.

Buy it from the shops – Okay, it might not taste exactly the same but you'll save the most money by picking up your favourite pizza from your local supermarket. Some Asda stores sell freshly made ones from the pizza counter where prices start at £2.

50% off Papa John's

Papa John's is doing 50% off pizzas when you spend £20 or more.

The deal is available until February 14 and all you have to do is apply the discount code 50OFF20P at the online checkout.

The offer is only available at participating stores so check you can get the deal at your nearest branch first.

Stores in Butlins, Haven Holiday Parks, Ribby Hall Village, Welcome Break, Planet Ice, on campus stores and stores in Ireland are excluded from the deal.

The minimum spend may also vary at different branches and drinks, ice creams and Papadias will not be includedin the deal.
