“I’m an Ox&Pen member and I have 1,276 points. Now what?”
First of all, if you have 1,200 loyalty points, holy cannoli! Second of all, it’s time to get out there and use them.
Keep in mind you can earn points with purchases at merchants in the Ox&Pen network. You’re also awarded points when you check in at merchants using the Ox&Pen app, and you get bonus points for sharing the check-in on Facebook or Twitter.
If you want to get lots of points fast, invite your friends to join Ox&Pen; you’ll receive 250 points for every friend who becomes a member.*
Once you’ve earned enough points, you can redeem them for goods and services at any merchant in the network. The points are effectively virtual currency on the Ox&Pen platform. Surprise! You have extra spending power you didn’t know you had.
But now that you know you can spend these points on actual goods and services, what types of things can you get?
Every merchant in the Ox&Pen network offers rewards for different amounts of points. To cash in your points, simply find the merchant you want on your mobile app, select the “Use Points” tab and click “Use Now” next to the
appropriate point value. You’ll then scan the merchant-provided QR code to redeem. If you want to do your homework ahead of time, take a peek at the complete list of rewards, found on the Points tab in your Ox&Pen member dashboard within the web app.
Here are examples of what your loyalty points are worth:
- 500 points: $6 at Roots Pizza, $6 at Bleeding Heart Bakery and Café, free bakery pastry at Dog-a-holics
- 1,000 points: $10 at Krista K Boutique, glass of sherry at Vera, $15 at Roots Pizza, $15 at Bleeding Heart Bakery and Café
- 1,200 points: free entree at Porkchop
- 1,500 points: $20 at The Fifty/50, $18 at Pizza Persona
- 2,500 points: free pound of dog food at Dog-a-holics, $30 worth of food and drink at Leopold
Now that you have a taste of what Ox&Pen loyalty points can get you, are you ready to take advantage of free stuff?
*Insider info: Ox&Pen partners with merchants on the network every so often to host events to show appreciation for our members. At those events, members typically have the chance to check in and share for a lot more points than normal. For instance, tomorrow there is a free whiskey and gin tasting at Porkchop. In addition to free tastes and 15% off the bill, Ox&Pen members get double points for check-ins and shares!
