‘Pret Perks’ launches today – how does it work?

A couple of weeks ago we had the exclusive news about the launch of ‘Pret Perks’, the new Pret A Manger loyalty scheme.

The programme finally goes live today. However, it will be in beta for a few weeks and can only be accessed by people with a Pret coffee subscription and an iPhone.

You will earn one ‘star’ for every purchase and stars can be redeemed for ‘perks’. You will require 10 stars to receive a free product from a rotating list of rewards. You do not get your choice of any item in the store.

Once you have hit 10 ‘stars’, you will have 30 days to claim your free product. Your free gift will expire at this point.

You will NOT earn ‘stars’ when claiming a free coffee from your subscription unless something else is bought at the same time. All Pret coffee subscribers will receive a nominal one star per month as part of their subscription. You need to scan a QR card in the Pret app to receive your stars.

One attempt at gaming the system is already blocked in the rules. Any purchases made in quick succession will be amalgamated together, so you cannot buy a coffee and a sandwich in two transactions and earn two ‘stars’.

Full details should be on this web page from this morning.

    I have to say, this whole Creation thing has hacked me right off, on top of my numerous travel cancellations over the past 2 years and others that have just recently occurred I am, quite frankly, fed up with things. It seems that one bragging idiot on HfP has now caused one of my best hotel credit cards to be cancelled by Creation even though the only thing i did was link it to Curve. I never even used it!

      Apologies for asking this without checking; there are a lot of comments to scroll through now. Has anyone asked Creation for a copy of all the data relating to them, a DSAR I think it’s called ?
      Now that they have closed my account, and will be refunding my annual fee, I have no concerns about pissing them off any further so will look into making that request, for any and all data they gold about me.
