I have always been sceptical of discounts. Every time I pass by a store that says SALE – 50% OFF, my gaze invariably tries to look for a spot that must say “upto” in small-case letters somewhere. Nothing is ever truly 50% OFF off.
That’s precisely why it took me so long to check bogo out. BOGO is a book and an app which allows you to avail “buy one and get one free” offers at various restaurants, salons, gyms, dentists – you get the drift.
Once you buy the book or the app, it is valid for at least a year. The first time I actually used bogo was last year in December – when I only had a month left to use hundreds of vouchers. We enlisted the help of like 7 friends so we could use most of it in time and that’s also the first time I used it at KOEL – and got two spinach and artichoke dips for the price of one. Game-changer.
The next year, I was adamant that I would start using it right away instead of waiting till December and so I did. After using it extensively, I have come up with a list of my favourite offers from BOGO that makes me want to keep using it every year:
OFFER: Buy one appetiser and get one appetiser free.
Recommendation: Spinach and Artichoke Dip.
OFFER: Buy one pizza and get one pizza free
POMO is not really known to be a restaurant where you go if you are broke, so getting a pizza free at POMO is amazing! On an average, their pizza costs around a thousand rupees without tax.
Recommendation: Mushroom Bianca or Ricotta Pizza
OFFER: Buy one 6-inch chicken sub and get one free!
This is one of those deals which really make you wonder if this is really true but it is. You do get a sub free when you buy one!
Recommendation: Roasted Chicken Breast Sub
4- Oh My Grill
OFFER: Buy one gourmet burger meal and get one free!
Oh My Grill has the most food-gasmic burgers ever and to get two burger meals in the price of one [complete with fries and drink] is pretty awesome! You still gotta pay tax on the other burger though but still substantial savings.
Recommendation: Anything with mushroom and gouda!
5. Cote Rotie
OFFER: Buy one chicken tacos and get one free
Cote Rotie is also another restaurant that has excellent food but is certainly pricey. Getting bogo means you can get 2 platters of chicken tacos. Sign us up! There are other offers by Cote Rotie too btw but this one is my favourite.
Recommendation: Chicken Tacos. Yes.
OFFER: Buy one gourmet burger and get one free
POW is an underrated burger joint in Karachi. It has seriously solid beef burgers. To be honest, I would definitely take two burgers while paying for one if I had the chance. Oh wait, I do.
Recommendation: Louisiana Burger
OFFER: Buy one dynamite prawns and get one free
Tao has been really consistent with their food quality and service. I’d be pleased with getting anything free at Tao because I know it will be decent.
Recommendation: Dynamite Prawns. Must
OFFER: Buy one ticket and get one ticket free
