Pret a Manger offers 'all you can drink' season tickets for £20 a month

A great coffee giveaway is being launched by Pret a Manger – potentially saving workers hundreds of pounds a month – to encourage a return to high streets.

Customers can sign up to a £20 monthly subscription to have up to five drinks a day.

The YourPret Barista scheme, which also includes tea, hot chocolate, smoothies and iced coffee, is part of the chain’s radical remodelling to fit the ‘new normal’.

Buying five £2.40 Pret cappuccinos over 30 days would normally cost a customer £360.

Under the scheme, the drinks have to be bought at least 30 minutes apart and can only be for one person. The innovation is set to trigger a coffee shop price war. 

Pret is also rolling out a ‘heat me at home’ range and is now delivering sandwiches, salads and coffee to homes.

The chain is hoping for a dramatic kick-start to its sales, which are around 60 per cent below last year. 

Recently, however, trade has picked up, with sales across its 367 outlets growing at 7 per cent a week.

The innovative move, which is a first for the UK high street, comes against a background of fears that coronavirus has effectively ripped the heart out of many urban centres.

A lockdown - with millions continuing to work from home - means Pret and many other outlets in city centres and transport hubs have seen a collapse in customers.

Just last week, the coffee shop and sandwich chain announced some 2,800 job losses along with shorter opening hours. Another 1,000 jobs have been saved because the workforce agreed to shorter hours.
