As much as I love my local coffee shops, it’s beyond me to ever remember to bring my loyalty cards along. Or if I do, either myself or the cashier forgets to ask to get it punched or stamped.

Today, I popped into Caffe Rosso on 11th in Calgary to find a new screen sitting in front of the register. It said “Brownie Points” at the top. Turns out they’ve just launched their Brownie Points program today. You can either grab a card or download the app. Either gives you your own QR code (finally a useful use of QR codes!). You scan the QR code through the little camera on the screen, it brings up your account and records your purchase.

Easy peazy!

And… I was their first Brownie Points customer :). That should earn me some extra brownie points!

The app is free to download and available in the app store. Currently, it looks like it’s only available for iPhone and iPad. Good thing you can still grab a card with your own QR code if you’re not an Apple user!

As of today, Caffe Rosso is the only Calgary business using the app.

Brownie Points is a Canadian company located out of St John’s, NL. Check them out at getbrowniepoints.com.

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Brownie Points other than having just downloaded the app and used it in my favourite coffee shop. I also have no affiliation with my favourite coffee shop other than the fact that I love their coffee (and breakfast sandwiches and gigantic chocolate oatmeal cookies) and can often be seen in the window typing away at my laptop.
