Earning ZK Rewards

Earning ZK Stripes:

  • It’s easy to earn ZK Stripes! For all purchases (catering and non-catering), you will receive one ZK Stripe per dollar spent based on your subtotal. You can collect your ZK Stripes to redeem them on ZK Rewards of your choice, based on the ZK Stripe level. All ZK Stripes earned will be reflected on your account within 24 hours following purchase. ZK Stripes will have a rolling expiration period of 180 days and expiration is based on the date of purchase.
  • ZK Stripes are earned on catering and non-catering transactions and are based on our customers subtotal purchase. ZK Stripes will be calculated by rounding to the nearest whole number, .50 cents and higher will round up, .49 cents and lower will round down. Example: $12.49 subtotal spend will earn 12 Stripes, $12.50 subtotal spend will earn 13 Stripes. ZK Rewards cannot be earned on reward redemptions, offers or discounts, delivery fees, taxes or tips. ZK Stripes cannot be earned by purchasing gift cards but can be earned when paying with a gift card. ZK Stripes cannot be earned or redeemed on third party delivery services. ZK Stripes will not be returned to your account once used, this includes refunds, incorrectly selecting a ZK Reward, cancellations and/or voids.
  • To ensure you receive credit for a transaction, you must scan your ZK Rewards membership barcode (via the Zoes mobile app, online account or as a printed copy) or provide your registered phone number at the point of checkout. If ordering online or the Zoes mobile app, please make sure you are logged in to your ZK Rewards account. Your ability to apply a purchase to your account may be limited to participating locations. We reserve the right to offer additional rewards or decline to offer rewards in our sole discretion and without notice to you.
  • You will earn Stripes on all qualifying purchases made after the date and time you joined ZK Rewards; any purchases made prior to joining ZK Rewards do not qualify towards ZK Stripes and cannot be retroactively-applied. If you joined ZK Rewards prior to May 1, only purchases made on or after May 1, 2018 will qualify to earn ZK Stripes towards ZK Rewards. Any purchases prior to May 1, 2018 do not qualify towards ZK Stripes and cannot be retroactively-applied.
