Free iced coffee: Pret is giving away drinks today for people who know the secret password

If you love a freebie and regularly find yourself in need of an iced caffeinated beverage to quench your thirst, you’ll want to head down to Pret A Manger this week.

On Friday, selected shops around the UK will be giving away free, yes free, iced coffees to its customers.

The choices on offer include iced Americanos and iced lattes, made with organic coffee. Alternative milk options are available.

Better yet, customers will also have the chance to try the stores’ new Cold Brew, which has been brewed for over 14 hours with coffee beans from Peru, for free.

But, like the majority of things in life, there’s a catch for those wanting to nab this offer.

To claim a free iced coffee, customers are instructed to head to their nearest participating Pret store and quote a not-so-secret password to a member of staff behind the counter.

On Thursday, the eatery revealed the password is “ice to meet you”.

However, you'll want to be quick as the promotion lasts just one hour, between 10 and 11am, and use of the password allows for only one free iced coffee per person.

“Given we are set to see some sunshine this week, we wanted to ease our customers into the weekend with an iced coffee on us,” Briony Raven, head of coffee and packaging at Pret, said of the deal.
