As it celebrates the re-opening of 2,000+ of its UK stores from the end of July. Costa Coffee will welcome back customers with something a little special from Monday 6th July…

FREE drink when you register with the Costa Coffee Club mobile app

…A FREE perfectly handcrafted drink of their choice when they register with the Costa Coffee Club mobile app. The offer is available to both current Costa Coffee Club members and to newly registered users. Both will receive 300 points, the equivalent of £3, which they can spend on a drink of their choice in any participating Costa Coffee store across the UK from Monday 6th July, valid for 12 months from activation.

Whether you’ve been craving a classic Americano, Cappuccino, a signature Flat White or even an indulgent Hot Chocolate. Your expert Costa Coffee barista will welcome you back with the order you’ve been missing the most. With coffee remaining the nation’s favourite hot drink** and Costa Coffee voted the most missed coffee shop brand by consumers in a recent survey***. It’s no wonder that coffee lovers are thrilled to have their local stores re-opening for their much-anticipated caffeine fix.

300 bonus points can be redeemed against a food item to the value of £3

Don’t fancy a drink? No problem! The 300 bonus points can be used on any food item to the value of £3. Including a delicious flaky all-butter croissant, best-selling Millionaire’s Shortbread or even a British Smoked Bacon Bap.

Neil Lake, managing director of Costa Coffee UK&I, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our customers as we begin to re-open our stores. As we near our next key milestone of 2000+ store re-openings by the end of July, we’re delighted to treat Costa Coffee fans to a handcrafted drink, on us.

“To ensure both our customers and team members are safe we have introduced some new measures across our estate, while also maintaining the warm environment that we know they have been missing.

We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone through our doors to enjoy their favourite Costa Coffee drink!”

Keeping you safe

Customers visiting their local Costa Coffee stores will see that each store has been equipped with protective equipment, hand sanitiser stations are in place and all stores are currently operating with contactless only payment.

Both inside and outside stores. Floor signs have been carefully placed to adhere to social distancing guidelines. High-quality Perspex screens have been installed at all counters at takeaway stores. With designated pick-up points for delivery and mobile order collections.

With all drive-thru lanes now open across drive-thru sites. Bespoke one of a kind serving hatches have been designed for Costa Coffee to ensure customers can collect their order with no contact. These cleverly designed hatches, which lower items from the service hatch down to customer’s vehicles, have a built-in acrylic hygiene screen to provide maximum protection for both customers and Costa Coffee team members. These hatches have proved so successful within drive-thru stores. Costa Coffee will be looking to trial these external hatches within its Argyll Street store in London.
