The PF Chang’s Warrior Rewards program has been around awhile and the company just announced some upcoming ‘exciting changes.’ From my perspective it’s been a sleepy program. I joined about a year ago and have probably visited a dozen or more times to dine-in or carry out. So I commend their intentions to change the program and look forward to seeing the details. The announcement, sent July 18, 2013 via e-mail to current Warrior Rewards members, disclosed no details. It simply disclosed the recognition that the program needs some work and that they plan to make changes and keep members informed. Following is a copy of the e-mail content:
E-MAIL TO WARRIOR REWARDS MEMBERS FROM CEO – Rick Federico
Dear Warrior Rewards Member,
We understand that our Warrior® Rewards program was not as simple and rewarding as it could have been, and we are committed to making the necessary changes in an effort to win you back.
As you know, the spirit of Warrior® Rewards was about thanking you for choosing P.F. Chang’s and providing you with rewards that surprise and delight. We know we can do better. Therefore, as we strive to deliver a better, more compelling experience, we will be making some exciting updates to our rewards program. We promise to keep you up to date on all the exciting new changes to come.
Phillips Seafood is aiming to keep customers in the Mid-Atlantic region coming back for more of their signature seafood with the Friends of Phillips loyalty program. Diners in Atlantic City, Baltimore, Ocean City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC can earn rewards and special offers by signing up for the frequent diners card, with the perks becoming more attractive as customers spend more at Phillips.
The Friends of Phillips rewards program lets customers earn 1 point for every dollar that they spend at any participating restaurant, excluding alcohol only purchases. Once customers accrue 100 points, they earn a $10 reward that can be used towards their next meal at Phillips. Customers will also receive special offers for their birthday and anniversary, as well as special email offers, wine specials, and events which offer customers double points for their purchases.
Phillips also offers big spenders an extra incentive to join the Friends of Phillips. Members who earn 400 points will become a VIP member of the Phillips crew, which makes them eligible for additional rewards. VIP members can be treated to “priority seating, complimentary passes to the National Aquarium, Zoo and the Science Center in Baltimore, and discounts on party platters, seafood shipping and souvenirs.”
In order to register for the Friends of Phillips rewards program, customers can visit any participating location to complete an application. There is a $10 registration fee, but customers will receive $10 in rewards for their next visit. For more information, visit the Phillips Seafood website.

Dave and Buster’s restaurant and arcade provides a unique rewards program for its customers. Using Dave and Buster’s Power Card, customers can sign up to earn 10 dollars of game play for every 100 dollars spent on food, beverages, and other “qualifying purchases,” such as bowling, pool, and recharging one’s Power Card. Customers who sign up for Dave and Buster’s reward program will also receive “a free $10 game play (with purchase of $10 game play) coupon” for enrolling in the program.
This particular rewards program is geared more towards the gaming enthusiast than the casual diner. Customers may only use Rewards Points for games, as opposed to redeeming the points for food or drinks. Any points that are not used expire after 45 days, which would certainly entice gamers to return regularly. Dave and Buster’s also e-mails Rewards Points members promotional offers.
Registration for Dave and Buster’s rewards program is straight-forward, but customers must have a Power Card from a participating location in order to participate in the program. Customers who already have a Power Card may sign up for the Rewards Points program either at a Dave and Buster’s restaurant or online Tweets by @DaveandBusters
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.

The Warrior Card loyalty/rewards program offered by P.F. Chang’s China Bistro falls into the category of “surprise and delight” as described by the company itself. First, a little background on the brand itself, from the company’s website:
At P.F. Chang’s we are committed to providing you with an exceptional dining experience every time you walk through our doors. Each dish on our menu is prepared to order using the freshest and highest quality ingredients.
At P.F. Chang’s you are surrounded by a unique environment combining influences of Chinese and American cultures. A panoramic, hand-painted mural depicting 12th century China, is visible from the main dining room and commands attention as the restaurant’s centerpiece, while several terra-cotta warriors stand guard.
Our majestic 11 ft. tall horses grace the entrance to many of our restaurants. The horse symbolizes the original Forbidden City in China, which was built for China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huangdi.
These elements showcase the cuisine and create a stylish, comfortable, upbeat dining experience for our guests.

How does Warrior® Rewards work?
The Warrior Rewards® program allows you to receive Rewards for dining with us. These Rewards may not be identified to you in advance.
There are a few ways you can participate in Warrior® Rewards.
- Get a plastic Warrior® Rewards card at any participating P.F. Chang’s location in the Continental United States. In order to receive Rewards, you must register your card online here. When you visit us simply present your plastic card to your server and they will swipe it and you’ll receive credit for that visit.
- Get a plastic Warrior® Rewards card as mentioned above, but instead of giving the actual card to your server to swipe, you can tell them the card number.
- Sign up for Warrior® Rewards on our website or from our Mobile App. If you participate this way you will use the phone number registered to your account as your account ID and provide that to your server when you dine with us. You will also be issued a virtual card number, which you can see when you login to your account. If you want to jot that number down and present that to your server you are welcome to do so. All options, when presented to your server, will allow you to get credit for your visit.
