Caffe Nero double stamps when you transfer your physical stamps to digital @ Caffe Nero (National)

124
Found 11th Oct
I went to get my O2 drink yesterday
and one store told me that the promotion just started a few days ago and will last for 6 weeks

Basically, I was told that when you transfer your physical stamps to your digital account, they will double the stamps that you have.

E.g., 1 stamp becomes 2 stamps in your digital account.

Offer available until 31st October 2018 (credit: cakeh)

Alright folks, managed to take a sneaky pic in my local Nero after all.

I have about 20 stamp cards collected over a good long stint of O2ing with more than one phone and own cup double stamping. I wonder if there's a limit to the number of cards you can transfer? I am nervous about the app as often staff can't make it work for me plus the expiry date issue. Anyhow I will go and get some transfered today or tomorrow and report back. Only got six in my wallet at the moment.


I visited my second nearest Nero yesterday (Saturday 13th). They had no signs up but the barista was familiar with the offer being active. I'd got seven full cards in my wallet to add. He did state that I had to make a purchase for him to be able to add which was fine. Scanned my barcode off the Nero app. Then he had to hit a button on the till 63 times, one for each stamp! And... it didn't work. Much confusion. I'd already got my drink at this point and was drinking as this was going on.

After consulting with colleagues first they suggested it was because my phone wasn't connected to wifi properly which sounded a bit daft but I played along and switched to 4G. Still did not work but then he tried another option which (I think) was to enter the drink first and close that transaction off; then add the 63 stamps afterwards. Or the other way round; I was quite confused at this point. Anyhow that worked and the till spouted out a receipt about a foot long to which he tried to staple my seven cards; the stapler wasn't sturdy enough to get through all the cards!

I said I'd wait and see what appeared on my phone and after about 90 seconds the app started to buzz announcing I'd got some free drink coupons; sure enough I ended up with 13 (the 14th ended up being used for my drink remember) and another four stamps appeared from nowhere. I did use my own cup though which might have triggered some extra. By the time all this was over I'd finished my drink stood at the counter. They were very nice taking time to deal with it though; no complaints about the staff.

I think best thing to do is to wait until close to the end off the offer if possible so at least one staff member on each shift knows how this all works. Now how do we find out exactly when that date is?

Oh and also go at a quiet time.
So if you have 6 completed hand stamped cards, take them into a branch and they turn them into 12 digital cards on your app?

I asked and he said it should be fine but he said :he hasn't done it yet, it's on their system'
He asked me to do it but I was in a rush so didn't try
I'll be trying it myself soon

I heard the same thing when I was getting my free nero on Tuesday

How long is the expiry date?

About 1 year and 6 months i think
Mcdonalds have also started digital coffee loyalty on their app. So i guess they have a plan to remove stickers from cups in future.

Stops wombles, allows them to expire, in Neros case stops fraud, collects lots of lovely data they can use/sell
and makes you use their app which leads to online payments

Win-win for them. They really must provide something in return. At least Nero are doing this. M&S just axed their leaving loads of people with paper versions which couldn't be used.

Agree sometimes a slippery slope to watering down any loyalty. Greggs went from 5 stamps to 10 for a free coffee for example.

That's y I don't do digital cards
Luckily they said they had no plan to get rid of physical cards
I will keep mine for years to come
I did this in my local yesterday. Only had a few stamps on a couple of paper cards, but nice getting twice as many as a bonus.

Did they tell you how many times you could do?

Only got four cards at the moment, shame, I was up to about a dozen at one point. Nevertheless, great post, thanks OP.
Take your own cup in, get double stamps, in effect 5 coffees get 1 free!!

If i put that on a paper one, then transferred it onto digital, would that mean I get 4 stamps for a coffee?
Nice one. Cheers
Can you transfer paper to the app without making a purchase?
Last time I tried to get rid of my paper cards they refused unless I bought a drink.

No, guess there wasn't any need to since I only had a few stamps. A friend had 11 stamps (3 partly stamped cards) that they put onto the app without any problems as well. Don't see there being a limit to how many you can add? But maybe best doing it at separate occasions if you've been hoarding a mega stash of fully stamped cards. The hand-written sign in my local said the stamp exchange runs until the end of the month.
Woohoo glad I procrastinated on this one
@tungle106 heat added, have some cards from @AW0079 that I need to convert!

I have loads of digital cards expiring in 2019/2020, need to use them before expiry! I can't be bothered with paper cards as I'd have to deal with a massive stack then!

Does anyone have any written proof of this offer existing? Can't see anywhere...

I don't want to stand in the long Nero queue in central London to be told it's hoax.

Kindest regards

Well there is a hand-written sign (small notice board) by the tills in my local one, stating: you can get two stamps onto your app for every paper card stamp converted, the "stamp exchange" offer runs until 31st October.

I'm not sure I want to stand there taking a photo of the sign, all the baristas know me. You would assume this is national if other people in this thread have seen/heard about the same offer..
Hi I did it this afternoon. 10 stamps turned into 20 within 10 min.

True.

Yeah, or just ask next time you are there. I don't think it'd be a strange question (even if for some reason they didn't take part) considering a lot of branches have that offer.. so surely they must at least have heart about it. It'd be strange though if some branches took part and some didn't.
