Tag Your Coffee Shop's Loyalty Program

Rather than giving your customers yet another punch card to stuff in their wallets, consider taking your sandwich shop or café's loyalty program online. Scanning a Tag at the cash register could be an easy, paperless way for customers to track how many drinks they have left until that free one, with a mobile coupon for baristas to scan once they hit the milestone.

Or a Tag on tables can make it easy for customers to sign up for your e-newsletter, giving you a simple way to communicate drink specials, live musicians, or events – and keep track of your growing customer base. Tags could also link to your shop's mobile site, with a featured Customer of the Day, viral videos, "Vote for your favorite barista," and more. You could incorporate check-in services like Foursquare, too.
