How the 

Thrive Nutrition

 Loyalty Program Works

Thrive Nutrition offers customers two easy ways to earn stamps and unlock rewards in their loyalty program:

Purchase Any 2 Items: Customers earn one stamp for every purchase of two or more eligible items. These include smoothies, boosted energy drinks, aloe shots, bowls, or 6-packs of protein balls. After collecting ten stamps, customers receive a $13.50 credit towards their next purchase.

Mega Teas: Customers earn one stamp for every Mega Tea purchased. After collecting fifteen stamps, their next Mega Tea is on the house!

Thrive Nutrition utilizes OneStamps to make earning stamps even easier, especially for on-the-go purchases. OneStamps eliminates the need for in-store QR codes or devices. Customers simply find a unique QR sticker on their Mega Tea takeaway cup and scan it using the Stamp Me app's camera. OneStamps provides enhanced security with single-use, expiring codes to protect against misuse.

This method allows customers to scan the code whenever it's convenient for them, ensuring a streamlined and secure loyalty experience.
