Independence, KS, January 14, 2022 – Scooter’s Coffee, best known for its amazingly fast drive-thru, specialty coffee, and baked-from-scratch pastries, added a new location at 100 North 10th Street in Independence, Kansas. To celebrate, the drive-thru location will be hosting a Grand Opening on Friday, January 28, where the first 100 customers will receive a free $5 gift with a purchase of $10 or more! In addition, customers can earn 50 bonus Smiles when they pay with the Scooter’s Coffee mobile app.
With the app, customers earn 3 “Smiles” for every dollar spent, and once they reach 180 Smiles, they earn a free drink. All customers start in the Scooter Doodle status level, with perks that include a free drink on their birthday and surprise rewards, exclusive to the mobile app only. After earning 500 Smiles, customers move into the Caramelicious® status level with additional perks.
To pay with the app, customers simply need to link a credit card and tap “Pay in Stores” from the home screen.
