expired 300 Bonus Points ($3.00 Value) on Every Tea Purchase at Chatime

960

Update: apparently is 300 points per transaction, so if you are buying 2 teas, do it in 2 transactions to maximise the benefit :)

Super simple. If you have a Chatime Loyal-tea membership (free to join) you get an extra 300 points for every tea you purchase (every point equals $0.01 and you can pay your teas with points, so they are basically giving you $3.00).

Usually accrued at a 10:1 ratio, it normally takes 10 teas to get one free. With this one, you should get a free tea after buying 2 (average cost of $6.00).

From the promo email I got:

We know you love Chatime and here's more reason to love being a loyal-tea member.

For every tea you purchase, score yourself an extra 300 points (that's a half price Chatime)!

Grab yourself one (or two or three) and you'll be enjoying a free Chatime in no time.

T&Cs:

Offer ends midnight Tuesday 13/8/2019. To earn the bonus 300 loyal-tea points, you must order via the loyal-tea app or scan your membership card in-store at point of purchase. Offer can be redeemed multiple times until the promotion end date.

Enjoy!!!

    Chatime has to improve their tea formula. The last 3 times I have had it there was no tea taste and even the milk tea tasted very watered down…so I stopped going, Coco is much better. Until they improve the taste I won't be going again…been a long time customer too, so it's sad…

      Spot on. This is the major issue. Comparing to any other popular Taiwan milk teas on the street, their formula is just way too old-school.

      I think it's interesting how consumer taste for milk tea has changed over the years. From easyway which was like sugary milk, then a slight increase in the 'tea taste' with Chatime, then even more with Gongcha and Coco. Bring on the tea flavour!

        I actually find Gongcha to be very very sweet and not that much "tea taste". If I buy Gongcha, I have to always ask for no sugar otherwise can't taste much tea, and way to sweet for my taste. My choice is usually Sharetea and Alley now when I feel like bubble tea. I prefer to make my own matcha green tea, 100% tea taste no sugar.

      Agreed. Top three = Gong Cha, Coco and Sharetea

      I tend to have their fruity and frozen drinks, maybe that's why I haven't noticed their tea issue.

      I had the honeydew milk tea today and it tasted like off-milk. It didn't taste like honeydew at all. Such a shame I bought it many times before but this time the taste wasn't right. Did they recently change the formula or do they not standardise their drinks? I'm hesitant to buy that again. Even with the extra points, its not worth $7+ on milk tea that tastes like off milk.

    I got this e-mail too. Sounds like a pretty good deal.

    chatime feeling the heat from plenty of other bubble tea competitors just like easy way did?

      Easy way is the loser to Chatime for a western audience. But many are going for the Chinese marketed bubble tea places esp in the cbds. You’ll know you found one when they tell you “you know it has ice in it right” or straight up don’t give you any ice in your milk teas.

    Their frozen red bean matcha is always good though

  •  

    Chatime still exists??? I don't remember the last time I ordered any drink from them…with so many better competitors lately, chatime's drinks taste like a sachet drink.

      In Melbourne Central alone, there's 3 Chatimes! And probably about 6 of them in total of 5 minutes walking radius from Melbourne Central. However, if I was to count all the bubble tea places within a 5 minutes walking radius, the amount would probably go up to 50! They just keep popping up!

      Chatime markets to a more Western demographic based on their recent advertising. Most bubble tea shops don't do any marketing at all, relying on location, word of mouth, and on a brand name from overseas.

        Chatime markets to a more Western demographic based on their recent advertising.

        True, which to be honest the advertising they have been putting lately are disgusting.
        You can tell they have lost their customers that they are willing to put advertising like that, great bubble milktea shops never advertise to attract customer..the customers are their marketing tool.

      Canberra at least has very little competition. Only Chatime or Sharetea out of the major chains in the CBD area/ANU, which captures the bulk of the foreign student population. Chatime is also positioned better than Sharetea if you're in any of the Unilodge accommodations, so they get better business.

      There's a couple of independent stores that I've noticed in the CBD but their prices are usually higher than the major chains even before loyalty cards, so I haven't tried them.

        Eloura is nice (near civic interchange). It’s a little more on the expensive side but they do have a good variety of flavours compared to Chatime and Sharetea.

    Yogurt rice is the new trend, try yomie yogurt best taiwane drinks, very long que wait times, even two more other competitors opened some stores, pearl teas are just a dying franchise at the moment.

    I read it as 300 bonus points for each tea. But I just ordered 2 drinks and only got 300 bonus points for the entire order. I should have put through 2 separate orders…

    • +1 vote

      I asked Chatime to clarify and they responded by manually adding another 300 to my account. So I guess it is meant to be per drink but perhaps there were issues with the system.

    •  

      They were having issues managing it. Been told to do separate orders until it’s fixed but don’t know if it has been.

    What’s up with the Gongcha line at chadstone?

    I've been trying a lot of bubble tea stores and IMO, I think Chatime in Glen Waverley is the best

    Poor young lady (named Tiffany) running and managing on her own at Melbourne Central Station (closest to train station - gates) today lunch time. I had to wait for 7 minutes and 20 seconds to take my order and also waited for 12 minutes and 12 seconds to get my drink.
