Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis is telling shoppers how they can save £5 by buying a £1 pack of crisps.
He shared a handy tip for those looking to save money at their next restaurant outing on his Martin Lewis Money show – which aired on ITV.
Martin explained: “If you buy a £1 bag of these Walkers Taste Icons crisps, then there’s a QR code on the back that you can go online and it gives you £5 off when you spend £20 or more at local restaurants and takeaways.
“You can redeem on food or soft drinks so it’s a good way to support your local food emporium.”
The new crisps have been inspired by restaurants favourites such as madras curry, Thai green curry, fish and chips and chicken burritos, Manchester Evening News reports.
The deal has 3,000 restaurants to choose from so foodies are spoiled for choice.
Walkers’ launched its promotion to help give back and support local eateries which have played a vital role during the pandemic.
Katherine Cook from Walkers said: “Over the past 18 months, we have seen that, no matter what, local restaurants have been there for us as a nation.

“This year, Walkers is supporting and celebrating local restaurants by re-creating the flavours of the delicious dishes of four, much-loved local restaurants on our crisps and telling their iconic stories on our packs.
“We have also enlisted thousands of restaurants across the nation to participate in the offer to drive footfall to local restaurants (within five miles of every diner).
“At Walkers, we are proud to be able to give back to local businesses.”
To claim the handy discount, shoppers need to buy a pack, go to www.walkers.co.uk/local and select a participating local restaurant near them.
Shoppers will then receive a QR code which you can enjoy at a local restaurant.
However, be warned, the promotion is only on until February 15, 2022.
The discount is also only applied to soft drinks and food, not alcohol.
