What restaurant has the best loyalty program in NH?

One thing that bothers me about many restaurants these days is that they do nothing to make their regular customers feel respected. You go in and it is like your first time, no one remembers your name or has any idea of prior visits even though you are spending money at their restaurants. Make no mistake, keeping customers happy and making return visits is the lifeline of a dining establishment. The breaking point for me was a restaurant that we visited regularly and the waitress said ” Don’t I know you?" Yes, you waited on us the week before!

One way for restaurants to "give back" was with the introduction of loyalty cards. The basic idea is that you spend a certain amount of money at your favorite restaurant over time and get a credit towards the purchase of a future meal. This helps the owners because they can track their best patrons and it keeps guests coming back frequently. Customers like it because they get a credit towards a meal that varies depending on the dining establishment. NH Reviews has tried many loyalty cards and the numero uno is...

Great NH Restaurants has the best loyalty program that we have found and can be used at T-Bones and Cactus Jacks. Called Paybacks, you receive 1 point for every dollar spent so once you reach 100 points you get $10 bucks off a meal. The cost for the card is $10.00 and they give you a $10 reward as soon as you sign up. Those 55 and over can get the Gold Paybacks Card for free and receive two points for every dollar spent between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm every day of the week. One point is given outside of these hours.

The company goes above and beyond by giving promotions galore along the way to keep you coming back for more. They have been offering a free appetizer each month (up to &10 value) when you purchase two entrees. This one was included in their email newsletter.

Their latest promotion is to take a summer tour and score. Running until August 31, all you have to do is visit 6 or more of their T-Bones, Cactus Jacks or Copper Door locations and you will receive a dining card worth $25, $50, $75 or $100 depending on your number of visits. NH Reviews plans to take advantage.
