Whether seeking a pre-workout boost, a post-workout recovery drink, or a refreshing treat for the whole family, Crossroads aims to make healthy choices accessible and enjoyable. 

Their commitment to plant-based ingredients and energizing options positions them as a go-to destination for those seeking a balanced and flavorful approach to wellness.

The Brief

Crossroads and its second location, The Nook, sought a loyalty program that reflected its commitment to healthy choices and rewarded customers for making wellness a priority. They were looking for a solution that was simple to use for both customers and staff, promoting seamless adoption and ongoing engagement. 

By partnering with Stamp Me, Crossroads aimed to create a digital loyalty program that would increase customer retention, drive repeat visits, and build a community around their brand.

Key Objectives

Together with Stamp Me, Crossroads & The Nook aimed to: 

  • Create a 100% digital loyalty program that would reward customers for repeat purchases 
  • Foster stronger, more personalized connections with customers 
  • Deliver targeted and exciting campaigns for their loyal, health-conscious customers 
  • Communicate regularly with their customers to keep them updated and engaged 

How the 

Crossroads / The Nook

 Loyalty Program Works

Crossroads & The Nook offers two convenient ways for customers to earn stamps in their loyalty program. Customers earn stamps through two primary offers:

Mega Combos: Customers earn one stamp for every Mega Combo purchased. After ten stamps, their eleventh Mega Combo is free.

Mega Teas: Customers earn one stamp for every Mega Tea purchased. After fifteen stamps, their next Mega Tea is free.

In addition to scanning TempCodes in the Stamp Me app, Crossroads offers another convenient way for customers to earn stamps for their on-the-go purchases.

OneStamps is ideal for fast-paced physical businesses, online businesses, or hybrids, eliminating the need for QR codes or in-store devices. Instead, Crossroads & The Nook simply adds QR stickers to their takeaway cups for members to scan. 

When a customer purchases a Mega Tea or Mega Combo, they earn one stamp by scanning the QR code with Stamp Me’s in-app camera. OneStamps offers a crucial advantage for Crossroads: security. The single-use, expiring codes protect against fraud and misuse. 

Not only that, but this method makes it easy for customers to scan at any time, whether it’s when picking up their yummy beverage or in their cars! This makes for a swift and safe stamping process.
