Frequently Asked Questions

What are Beans and how do they work?

What is a Bean?

  • Beans are the reward points you earn whenever you make a food or beverage purchase at our stores using the App

  • You get 1 Bean for every Rs. 10 spent on food and/or beverages

  • On redemption, the value of 1 Bean = Rs. 1

  • Beans are earned on the base price of the item after discount and before tax

How do I earn and redeem Beans?

Earn Beans every time you:

  • Make a payment through your cash/card or wallet money after generating the QR code on your CCD App.

  • Refer someone to install and transact through the App

  • Participate in special campaigns conducted by CCD

  • The CCD Refer and Earn Program lets you invite friends to join CCD. For every friend you successfully refer to CCD App, you will receive bonus Beans worth Rs. 25.

  • With effect from 31st May, 2017, referral bonus has been revised to 25 Beans.

Calculation of Beans

You earn Beans every time you show the app at the counter while placing a food or beverage order

  • For every Rs. 10 spent (after discount and before tax) on F&B purchases, you earn 1 Bean
    Eg. Rs 10 spent = 1 Bean, Rs 27 spent= 2 Beans, and so forth.

Redemption of Beans

You can redeem your earned Beans against any beverage purchase (excluding combos and packaged beverages) at any CCD store.

The Café Coffee Day APP is applicable across vast network of cafes. However, from time-to-time, there will be select cafes which will be exempt for a temporary basis from app usage due to technical constraints /changes.

Beans are redeemed only against non-combos and non-packaged beverages, on your final billed value after discount and after tax. You are entitled to Redeem only 50 Beans on your first redemption of beans, and you can use the balance bonus Beans on your forthcoming visits! Nevertheless on further transactions, you are entitled to redeem as many Beans as you like.

1 Bean is equivalent to Rs. 1.

Do Beans have an expiry date?

Yes. Beans earned through referrals, fungible offers, sign up bonus or any ad-hoc Beans credited to your account has a validity of 3 months from the month of earning.

Purchased Beans and Beans earned on transaction have a validity of 12 months from the month of earning, post which it will expire.

The effective date for the validity of Beans starts from 1st July, 2016. Any Beans accrued prior to this date will have a 3-month validity period and will expire on 28th September, 2016. The expiry date is set on the 28th of every month, starting from September, 2016. Beans earned on any date in a month is considered as the month of the earning and the validity is calculated 3 months from the earning month, i.e. the validity cycle for redemption shall be on quarterly basis.

For instance, if you have earned 100 Beans from referrals on 1st July, 2016, they will be valid till 28th October 2016, post which they will expire. If you have earned on another referral on 30th July, 2016, it will also be valid till 28th October, 2016. If these bonus Beans are earned on 1st August, 2016, the expiry period will be 3 months and they will expire on 28th November, 2016.
