Which Money Saving Tactic Do You Use in the Pub?

Christmas drinks down the pub can be expensive, so here are some tactics you can use to minimise the cost:

  1. Buy your round early in the night – get the drinks in early and hope that it never comes round to you again, especially when the rounds can get a little silly when everyone’s a bit tipsy.
  2. Buy your round at the end of the night – hope that there are less people to buy for when some have gone home, or have decided they’ve had enough.
  3. Just buy for yourself – sometimes it’s cheaper to look after yourself. Why subsidise someone else’s triple Vodka and Redbull when you’re only drinking lager?
  4. Don’t go to the pub in the first place – bah humbug! The cheapest and least socialable option.

So which tactic do you go for? I tend to go for #1 – I always prefer to get my round out of the way as early as possible – obviously, it can be a dangerous tactic as it can come back round to you quickly.
