The Counter – The List


The boutique burger peddlers at The Counter have built a loyalty program to ensure that their customers come back for more of their custom made burgers. The Counter’s rewards program, The List, gives customers a variety of ways to earn points.

Customers earn 10 Dining Points for every dollar they spend at The Counter. Once customers earn 600 points (after 60 dollars), they earn 5 dollars in Dining Rewards. However, spending money on gourmet burgers isn’t the only way that customers can earn Dining Points. Customers get 200 points just for registering for The List loyalty program or for ordering their rewards card. Customers can also earn points by convincing their friends to join the List; customers will receive 300 Referral Points just for referring a friend to the program. 1200 Referral Points will snag another 10 dollars in Dining Rewards for members.

The perks of being on The List aren’t limited to the Dining Rewards. Customers receive a free order of fries just for signing up for the program. Members also receive a Birthday Shake, and The Counter ensures that members of their rewards program will also receive “Surprise Rewards throughout the year.” This last reward is certainly mysterious, but perhaps enough to keep customers coming back to The Counter for one more slider. For more information about The Counter and The List loyalty program, slide on over to The Counter’s website.

Lettuce Entertain You Frequent Diner Club

Lettuce Entertain You

Lettuce Entertain You’s Frequent Diner Club offers a sophisticated loyalty program for customers at nearly 70 locations across the country. The basic premise of the program is that after purchasing a Frequent Diner card for a one time 25 dollar enrollment fee, diners can begin racking up points for every dollar they spend at participating restaurants.

What sets LEYE’s rewards program apart are the options the program offers customers in terms of how to save and spend their points. At its most basic level, customers receive 10 dollars in dining rewards for every 140 dollars that they spend at one of the restaurants. For the more goal oriented diner, the Frequent Diner’s Club offers an extensive rewards program beyond dining rewards. Members can save their points for cooking classes, spa getaways, and resort vacations. All of these points can be checked on the customer’s online account or on LEYE’s convenient Lettuce Eats mobile app, which also allows customers to post reviews, view menus, and get directions to nearby LEYE locations.

The Reward’s Club’s perks are not limited to the rewards points that customers accrue from dining out. Members will also receive emails with offers and discounts on a variety of products and services. As with the spa trips and resorts, LEYE looks to retain customers by offering them incentives ranging from White Sox tickets to deals on concert tickets and wine club memberships.

Lettuce Entertain You takes its program further by offering its members the option of becoming a silver or gold member. The LEYE website details the advantages (and requirements) of being a preferred member:

First, you’ll earn more points per dollar spent: 1.25 for Silver, and 1.5 points per dollar spent for Gold. Second, you’ll be that much closer to being able to redeem your points for special rewards (click here to view the rewards). And third, Gold Level Members receive Priority Reservation privileges at Lettuce restaurants.

Once you have reached Silver or Gold status, you will keep that status through the following calendar year. You will need to spend $2,500 in the calendar year to keep your Gold status and $1,000 in the calendar year to keep your Silver status.

The Rewards Club Program also gives customers the option of “banking” their rewards, which, according to the Rewards Club website, allows members greater flexibility in terms of saving and using their points:

You may choose to bank your points until the end of the calendar year (January 1 to December 31) to save for premium rewards. Choose the banking option on your online profile. All points must be redeemed at the end of the year.  If you have not reached 1,400 or more points by December 31, your points will automatically be redeemed and credit will be transferred to your Rewards Card.  If you have not redeemed your points by December 31, you will receive a letter outlining your options.

LEYE seems to have an ambitious plan to keep customers coming back (and spending large sums of money while dining). The diversity of perks that LEYE offers its customers, from discounted dining to specials on travel and entertainment, speaks to the competition in the market.

Papa Rewards – Papa Johns

Papa Johns Papa Rewards

The pizza segment of the restaurant industry has been and will continue to be a major competitive battleground. The combination of national, regional and local competitors and the heavy delivery/carry-out component provide some unique dynamics as compared to more traditional casual, fast casual and QSR restaurant brands. Because many of these brands have been collecting customer data for years (to facilitate the delivery process), the development and implementation of loyalty/rewards programs is not as logistically complex as it is in many other restaurant companies. These companies already connect customers with purchase transactions and that’s more than half the battle.

Papa John’s has already jumped on the bandwagon with Papa Rewards. It’s simple to participate and the program rewards members for orders placed online. To participate, you simply register online and from that point forward, as you place orders online you earn points in your Papa Rewards account. It’s a fairly rich proposition too – for every $25 you spend, you earn a free large pizza with up to three toppings.

  • Earn 1 Papa Rewards Point for every $5 you spend, including tax and delivery, on every purchase from your account.
  • You are eligible for a FREE large pizza with up to three toppings when you have earned 25 Papa Rewards Points.
  • Look for other special offers for Papa Rewards members throughout the year, but you must opt-in to receive promotional and marketing emails from Papa John’s.

For more information, visit the Papa Rewards website.

We look for more activity in the pizza category. Stay tuned.
