A “check-in” is when a Caribou Perks member identifies themselves by showing the store team member the barcode on the Caribou Coffee app, ordering ahead in the Caribou Coffee app, or when a member provides their phone number at the register prior to purchase. It is also considered a “Check-in” when a member successfully checks out on CaribouCoffee.com while signed into their Caribou Perks account.
Please contact our Guest Relations team via email@example.com, by calling 1.888.227.4268 or via chat. Please give them the details of your visit (e.g. what store, the date and your ticket amount).

Caribou Perks® points
Caribou Perks members will earn 2 points for every $1 spent on purchases at participating U.S. Caribou Coffee locations when they “check-in” and pay with their Caribou Coffee app or order ahead with the Caribou Coffee app. Caribou Perks members will earn 1 point for every $1 spent for checking in at the register or drive-thru and using cash or credit/debit card to pay. This does not include the purchase of gift cards or eGift cards.
If you don’t have any activity or a “Check-in” in your Caribou Perks account for six months, the points in your account (no matter when they were earned) will expire and will no longer be available for redemption.
“Activity” is defined as a check-in/visit or a reward redemption in a Caribou Coffee store in the U.S. or CaribouCoffee.com
You will be able to see your points balance on the Caribou Coffee® app, within your account on CaribouCoffee.com, or if you are opted into emails and push notifications. In addition, your Caribou Coffee team member who checks you in at the store will also be able to see your point balance.
The points you redeemed the reward for will be deducted from your account balance. However, the reward will still be in your account and can be used up to 14 days (about 2 weeks) after you redeemed your points for the reward.
Caribou Perks® Rewards
Caribou Perks member can earn Rewards by redeeming their Points. Rewards can be redeemed at 25 points, 50 points, 100 points, 175 points, 200 points, 225 points, 300 points, or 400 points. The more you check in, the more you buy, the more points you’ll earn and rewards you can use. It’s that easy. View all available Rewards here.
Usually, you will have 14 days to redeem, but keep in mind that the expiration date of the reward can vary based on the promotion. In order to see the exact date, make sure you have the Caribou Coffee app or have opted into email notifications, so you know how long you have to redeem.
