Pizza Express no longer accepting Meerkat Meals 2 for 1

Options
Hello All,
Just wanted to post a Heads up - to maybe avoid a bit of embarrassment when getting the Bill - in that Pizza Express no longer seems to be accepting the Meerkat 2 for 1 deal.
I was there yesterday and Pizza Express had disapppeared off the restaurants near you that appear if you have location services enabled, but I didn't think anything of it and chose the "I'm somewhere else" option.
The QR code/membership number didn't scan/work when the Waitress came to take the code, so she checked with the Manager and found out that P.E. wasn't participating anymore.
I have an NUS card which still gives me 30% off food and drink Sun-Thurs, so that helped a bit, but wouldn't it have been better if the Meerkat / Pizza express app would have sent me a notification that this was happening? Maybe they think it is not their interest, but I reckon letting your customers down gently is pretty important myself.
Hope this helps somebody.

    I mean not trying to be rude but this really was your first clue, or at least the prompt to check before ordering...

    2 for 1 vouchers on 5 packs of the pizza express walkers crisps available from supermarkets.

    Not checked the T and C's so don't know if you can combine with Eat out to help out deal mon-weds

    I thought Meerkat 2 for 1 was never valid at Pizza Express? Or maybe its just certain restaurants where it is/was valid? My local Pizza Express has never accepted such as offer!

    Other restaurants have said they will allow other offers to be included with the eat out to help out.

    True, but Pizza Express are in clear financial difficulties, so it’s possible they won’t.
