T.G.I. Friday’s Making Patrons Thankful For New App

One of America’s favorite restaurant chains is going mobile.

On Tuesday, T.G.I. Friday’s announced a new effort that will make it easier than ever for you to enjoy your dining experience at the popular restaurant.

Now, through enhancements to the Friday’s Mobile App, Stripes members can use their smart phones to quickly and easily check and request Stripes rewards as well as show Stripes rewards certificates to their server without needing to print anything out.

The free app is available now on iTunes and Google Play.

In addition to keeping all the old features and functionalities of the already-established T.G.I. Friday’s app, the added functionality lets “Give Me More Stripes” members request self-credit. In other words, by scanning the receipt barcode, members can get immediate credit for their visit. The scanning device is built into the app and does not require any other software or apps be downloaded, the company says.

“Since we launched the app earlier this year, the Friday’s Mobile App has continued to gain popularity among our guests, who are tapping into all the unique features like paying the tab and sharing happy hour updates,” said Ricky Richardson, chief operating officer at T.G.I. Friday’s. “Now, we’re excited to build on the app’s functionality by making it easier than ever for guests to use the app to tap into all their Stripes program benefits – whether in the restaurant or on-the-go.”
