Jonathan Campbell rounds up the best deals on the web and the high street

Get a free portion of fries with the KFC smartphone app

The freebie will appear in the 'my rewards' and 'offers' section of the app. The promotion runs until November 3 and is valid until 11pm only. You get one free portion per app user, per Friday, but you can claim a portion every week. When you first sign up to the app, you'll get a free portion of any of the following two: two hot wings; regular soft drink; small popcorn chicken; or ice cream sundae. Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Each day 2,000 codes are available. Franchise stores are excluded. Find your nearest at www.thorntons.co.uk/store-locator. If you are successful in getting a code, wait until you arrive at the store before you click 'use it now', because it expires 15 minutes after you press the button.
