Nandos loyalty card is no more

20
Found 5th Sep 2013
Spicy chicken chain Nando's has launched a new electronic loyalty card offering more reward options than the restaurant's past schemes – but you'll need to spend more cash to take a bite out of it.
The new loyalty scheme, which launched last week, lets cardholders collect one 'Chilli' per transaction of £7 or more, per day. Once you've accumulated a certain number of Chillies, these can be traded in for free dishes (see our Restaurant Deals page for the best discounts if you're planning a meal out).

To take part, you just need to pick up a card in a Nando's restaurant. You'll be able to use it straight away.

The electronic card replaces its previous scheme, where a paper card was stamped for each meal costing £6 or more.

If you've got an old loyalty card, you'll no longer be able to earn new stamps, but you'll be able to cash in rewards from them up to 30 June 2014.

But if you've earned an odd number of stamps that don't add up to enough to redeem a reward, you won't be able to transfer these over to the new Chilli scheme.


How do the loyalty cards compare?
Under the new scheme, you'll have more choice over what to spend your Chillies on:
Three Chillies: Free 1/4 chicken or any "appeteaser". Previously three stamps got you a free 1/4 chicken or any appeteaser excluding Altogether Now.
Six Chillies: Free 1/2 chicken or any single wrap, pitta or burger. Previously six stamps only got you a free 1/2 chicken (or vegetarian alternative).
10 Chillies: Free whole chicken or any single combo meal. Previously 10 stamps only got you a free whole chicken (or vegetarian alternative).
The new electronic card also means your balance will be saved to your online account – providing you register your card on the Nando's website. So if you lose your card, you can report it and get your Chilli tally transferred over to a replacement.
Just as with the old scheme, you can also only earn one Chilli per day, so you can't split your bill into as many £7+ transactions as possible to maximise your Chilli count.
Nando's has been trialling the Chilli scheme in Scotland since May 2012.

They've probably scrapped the old scheme as it was blatantly abused. I'm on a few buy/sell groups on Facebook and they were flooded with these stamps and completed cards.

I know kids that used to steal the stamp from the counter and then stamp their cards and everyone elses every time they went there - free chicken.

Damnit, I'm one stamp away from full chicken but that won't carry across!! :(,

£7 now... useless!

Is this really new? have been using this reward scheme for more than a year now.

Scotland were trialling it. I have had it since it came out and I think it is great.

This isn't a freebie?!?

still got until next year to use your old cards though

Nandos is over hyped crap!!! It's a chicken in a bun! This is all!!

This isn't new I've had this electronic card for well over a year and redeemed the full 10 chiles.

When they changed to this scheme in Scotland I was short on stamps and they upgraded me to the nearest reward in exchange for the new card.

Nandos do have a discount for Fire Police Ambulance and NHS staff, you just have to show ID when you pay. I think it's 20% or maybe even a bit more I haven't been for a while.

I went today was 1 stamp away from a full chicken. Went and bought a round of drinks while waiting for my table, then when went to order I had enough for my chicken

you can buy stamp of ebay and stamp as many cards as u want - go and have free chicken everyday. sad this is coming to end

The fully stamped cards which are valid until June 2014 are currently on sale on Facebook at £5 for 1 or 3 for £10. That's probably why the scheme has changed!! Shame as it affects the people that genuinely used this scheme.

Cant find a load of crap
