Coffee Promotions: Loyalty

Club or member cards are still one of the most popular and efficient promotion mechanisms in the market today.

These cards are inexpensive to produce and manage, and the program encourages repeat purchases while rewarding loyal customers.

A common offer is “Buy 5 & get the 6th free”. A double punch option can be used to promote purchase of a specific item or during a particular timeframe.

Travel mug programs are another great loyalty option for travel plazas. Once the mug has been purchased, loyal mug owners are rewarded with free or discounted refills.

The come-back receipt is another inexpensive option that is growing in popularity – a printed offer on the customer’s morning receipt can be used for a special deal on a return visit later that day.
