A “check-in” is when a Rewards member identifies themselves by showing the store team member the barcode on the app or by providing their phone number at the register prior to a purchase. This ensures you will earn credit for your visit and 2 points per $1 spent.
Based on the number of Points in your account, you can redeem for things like bagels, sandwiches, baked goods, brewed coffee, beverage size upgrades, and more! The choices will vary so check back often. View your Points balance in the App and select from your available Rewards.
The $5 reward was part of our Einstein Bros. test program. Now when you use the app, you can choose a reward for a free food or beverage item based on your available point balance. It's up to you how you want to use your points.
Usually you will have 14 days to redeem a reward, but keep in mind that the length of a reward can vary so make sure you have the Mobile App or have opted into email so you know how long you have to redeem. Points expire after a period of 6 months of inactivity. Make sure you check-in each time you visit so your Points don’t expire.
You can earn as many points as you want and save them for future use. Remember to check-in each time you visit so you don’t let your points expire.

Depending on where you live, we may or may not have locations in your area that participate in the Shmear Society. Some locations do not accept offers so you may not get emails from us if the only nearby locations are licensed locations which are located in airports, hospitals, college campuses, military bases and hotels.
You can redeem Shmear Society rewards by visiting a participating Einstein Bros. location near you and presenting either the barcode listed on your Shmear Society email to the cashier (via mobile device or printed copy of your email) or by providing your phone # to the cashier (make sure you have added phone # to your account - visit your account page to add your phone #).
Good news! You don't need your email from us to redeem rewards - now you can redeem rewards in-store with your phone number. All you need to do is provide your phone number to the cashier when you visit your local Einstein Bros. location and advise them you would like to redeem a reward. The cashier will look up your account and confirm what rewards you qualify for.
At this time our Einstein Bros. licensed locations do not accept coupons or gift cards. These locations are located in airports, hospitals, college campuses, military bases and hotels.
