It sends an alert when the next Happy Hour is, and then automatically adds Happy Hour coupons to your account.

The next time you are in the app, you can access Your Happy Hour menu by tapping the hamburger icon on the bottom left hand corner.

So, if an example, you have a $15 coupon and you get a $5 coupon. But then you can’t use both coupons at the same time.

Just like rewards will expire, any credits you’ve earned through the app also have a set expiration. There’s no setting to keep those.

Also, every day is an opportunity for a free cup of coffee, so every day, for the rest of our lives is National Coffee Day.
