Becoming a Member, what it means and managing your Membership

Members

You can become a member by downloading the App and successfully completing the registration process on the App (“Member”). You are required to be over the age of 18 at the time of registration to become a Member.

What Membership means

Your Membership can only be registered in the name of an individual and an individual may only register one Membership.

Your Membership enables you to earn virtual stamps (“Beans”) on the App. Once you have earned ten Beans (the “Threshold”), you will receive a voucher (“Voucher”) which can be redeemed in accordance with the ‘Redeeming Vouchers’ section below in participating Costa outlets in India.

Managing your Membership

You shall be able to manage their Membership on the App. Managing your Membership includes being able to update certain elements of your personal information .

Earning Beans and redeeming Vouchers

Earning Beans

Beans can only be earned in-store at the time of purchase and only if the QR Code on your App is scanned at the point of purchase

You will earn one (1) Bean for each:

(i) handcrafted drink (i.e. any handcrafted drink which is on the menu board at a Costa outlet (“Handcrafted Drink”) purchased from a participating Costa outlet in India; and
(ii) selected handcrafted food items purchased from a participating Costa outlet in India,

And you will earn two (2) Beans for each:

(i) bundle deal drink (i.e. any drink which is included in any bundle deal) purchased from a participating Costa outlet in India;

each a “Eligible Item” and together the “Eligible Items”.

For the avoidance of doubt, if a Member purchases multiple Eligible Items in one transaction, the Member will receive the number of Beans which corresponds with the total number of Eligible Items purchased. Earning of Beans is not limited to one Bean per transaction.

You can also earn five (5) Beans when you successfully complete registration of your Membership on the App

Beans cannot be earned:

(i) on purchases of any items other than Eligible Items;
(ii) on Eligible Items purchased using a Voucher;
(iii) when purchasing gift cards; and
(iv) in conjunction with any discount card whether issued by us or by any third party.

If you have not used the App to earn Beans and/or redeem Vouchers in the past twelve (12) months, all your Beans which have not been converted to Vouchers will expire.

Redeeming Vouchers

Once you have earned the number of Beans equal to the Threshold, those Beans will be automatically converted into a Voucher on the App. Vouchers are valid for six months from the date on which they are issued. 

You can check the number of Beans you have earned and the number of Vouchers you have at any participating Costa outlet or by checking the App.

Beans and Vouchers have no cash value. Beans and Vouchers can only be earned, held and redeemed as set out in these Terms and Conditions. Any Beans or Vouchers obtained or used otherwise than in accordance with these Terms and Conditions will be invalid and cannot be redeemed.

Beans are personal to you and cannot be pooled with Beans earned by another Member and redeemed together. 

In order to redeem a Voucher in-store, you will need to scan the QR Code at the point of purchase using the App and state that you would like to redeem your Voucher. Multiple Vouchers (provided they are personal to you) can be redeemed in the same transaction.

You may only redeem Vouchers against purchases of Handcrafted Drinks (including any non-food add-ons, such as syrups and additional shots) made in-store at participating Costa outlets in India. Vouchers can be redeemed in conjunction with other vouchers, discounts or promotions, unless the terms of the offer or promotion state otherwise and save as set out below.

Vouchers cannot be:

(i) used more than once;
(ii) redeemed against purchases of items other than Handcrafted Drinks made in participating Costa outlets;
(iii) redeemed against purchases of bundle deal drinks;

(iv) used in a manner which would entitle a Member to a promotional offer. For example, if we had a buy one get one free offer on a handcrafted coffee, the use of the Voucher to purchase such a coffee would not entitle you to a second free coffee; or
(v) used in conjunction with any discount card whether issued by us or by any third party.

Expiry and Cancellation

Your Membership does not have an expiry date. However, as stated above, your:

(i) Beans will expire if you have not used the App to earn Beans and/or redeem Vouchers in the past twelve (12) months; and
(ii) Vouchers will expire six (6) months after they have been issued.

Where possible, we will try and notify you in advance that your Beans and/or your Vouchers are about to expire but, in any case, it is your responsibility to make sure you use your Beans and/or your Vouchers before they expire.
