Received the code this morning for 50% off VIP membership renewal at the Coffee Club.
Hopefully not targeted.
Thanks OP. Worked for me. My email this morning was for $17.50 renewal.
Works for new memberships as well.
What are the main benefits and worth?
Never mind I found it.

Personalised message suggestions anyone?
The burgers are better at Hungry Jacks?
The coffees are better at Coffee Club
"Powdered Toast Man"
Coffee, beer, sleep, repeat.
My card says “Entitled to free snacks”
The food at Coffee Club is pretty average at best and overpriced imo. 10% off still doesn't make it any cheaper.
Probably worth it for the buy one, get one free coffee if you don't mind their coffee.
from my experience, it's a hit-and-miss - the brand would have to work on this IMO. Some Coffee Clubs consistently make good coffee, others just put bad/cheap baristas who make terrible ones. most of the times I take a walk around the shop looking at how things are going near the coffee machine before buying it.
It makes it 10% cheaper
Good deal. Not mentioned above, but B1G1F is not available on public holidays.
which is a tiny percentage when compared to the days you can enjoy it
Plus there is the public holiday surcharge (10% IIRC)
Me and wife picking up kiddo from childcare, then going for a relaxing afternoon coffee:
- regular places: 2 x 4.50 + 2 (babyccino) = $11
- coffee club vip: 1 x 4.50 (2nd coffee free) + free babyccino = $4.50
It really helps to make these moments a lot Ozbargain-pleasant :)
Is the babyccino free with a VIP card?
I think that it is free for everyone purchasing a regular coffee and, quite importantly, they understand how to make one (not burning hot because, surprise, it's for a child)
All Coffee Clubs I've been to make free babyccino. Most places will charge about $1.50, but I've seen cafes charge the full coffee price for it.
do they make babyalcohol too?
2 free babyccinos ?
I can't see why they wouldn't do it. I'm planning to be able to answer this question properly in 2021 :)
Something Similar here. I go there on weekend mornings and some weekdays, spend good time in solace planning and reading stuff. And get a takeaway for my wife on the way back. This ritual has provided immense value to me, and I had never gone to the Coffee club before getting the VIP card.
I just renewed last month, but I dont mind not getting a deal on it :)
Also I use the rewards app on the phone, so in addition to the free coffee everytime, you get two more free coffees from the reward points after every 10 paid coffees.
THIS! The rewards! I forgot to mention it! It's amazing how much it pays back. I took some friends for sandwiches and coffee once at a Coffee Club (about 6 people) and that generated credit for coffee + muffin later for me. And rewards is free membership if I am correct.
I've just signed up, do we have to swipe the card that gets sent in the mail for the free coffee, and scan our barcode in the app for the reward points?
Apparently (TCC employee told me), if you use the same email address for both the VIP card and the app, the two get linked. This means you only need to scan the barcode in the app to get both the points and the free coffee and discount food. I now only use the app.
@BigBirdy: Good info. Thank you
I've done exactly that.
I signed up for a new membership yesterday and signed up in the app using the same email address.
However it is not working for me. I cannot see my VIP card in the app
@ashdays: I had the same issue, and hence consulted TCC staff who told me as I said re email. My app does not show any VIP card info, I searched high and low for how to add it, but I notice it says VIP next to “Hello (my name)!”. I don’t know if this is evidence of VIP membership, or has no meaning.
Try making a purchase using just the app and see if you get the deal.
@BigBirdy: Thank you.
@BigBirdy: The VIP in the top right corner indicates that your VIP membership has been linked with your app.
Sometimes it doesn't link immediately, but if you used the same email to register for both accounts, it should link within 30 minutes.
Also, if you want to use the VIP discount immediately and get points with the app, but it hasn't linked it yet, ask the cashier to swipe your card first, then delete the card's number, and then scan the app.
This way, you can get both VIP benefits and points as you wait for it to link.
surprisingly the membership benefits are valid in NZ too, have used the BOGOF hot drink no issues there
yep, used it myself travelling for work.
Brisbane just lost its Albert Street store in December 2019.
yep i've seen a fair few shut down over the past few years, still enough around to make this worth it though..
Only if a store is on your most direct route (usually to work) or you don't mind going out of your way for it.
Regrettably, I'll probably seldom use my VIP card now my 'local' store has closed. I don't have the time in the morning and don't really consider their coffee anything special to go out of my way for.
are the cards transferable? can i get to a family member to use if i am not using it?
Yeah I've never had them check ID, the easiest way is to just get them to download the app and then log in.
Thanks OP. Signed up to this deal
Does it extend your membership for a year or restart it from today when you use the code?
Extends for a year
I am a coffee nut, I got a free bday coffee here last year. This place does not deserve to be called the coffee club. Even for free I felt ripped off. awful stuff.
Wouldn't the correct term be a 'coffee bean'?
When does this code end.
Thanks OP. I purchased this same deal on Boxing Day 2018. Renewing it now for $12.50.
My local Coffee Club would let me get my free coffee 20 minutes after my first when I would do some work at the cafe (i.e. didn't have to get two coffees at the same time for the freebie).
Anyone want to meet up every weekday morning in the CBD sydney to split the cost of the coffee? $4.50 per coffee, buy one get one, $2.25 each per coffee :)
Saving of $2.25 per coffee each, $11.25 saving weekly -> $540 saving per year for 48 weeks taking into account 4 weeks annual leave.
You are a true ozbargainer! Somebody give this man a medal!!
Also the potential to develop a new friendship, as well as a potential future lover.
Where’s the coffee club in Sydney CBD?
Wish this would just get you half priced coffee instead . Still a great deal though.
Thanks OP, my membership expires on 5th :)
When will this code end for people?
Thanks, I just now renewed my membership which had expired mid last year for $12.50.
Fell for the deal last year, the service and food was crap. coffee is horrible too. They have to close soon
