When we shared the news that after March 31 your the Dutch Bros stamp cards you have piling up in your center console and wallet would be useless many of you got VERY upset. Well, Dutch Bros isn't taking away your free drinks. They're just changing it up a little bit!  

Yes, it's true that Dutch Bros is phasing out the stamp cards that we've all come to love. It's all a part of the plan for their new app based rewards program that launched a few days ago. The new program is points based. You earn 5 points for every dollar spent. Once you reach 250 points, you can get a free medium drink or continue to save for a free drink of your choice for 325 points. Once you earn those rewards, they're good for six months.

While you can't order from the app, you can browse the menu and set up your "Dutch Pass" that makes contactless payment easy. You can link it up to Apple Pay, add a new credit card or transfer the balance of your Dutch Bros gift cards.

I downloaded it just to see what it was all about and Dutch Bros surprised me with 125 points for doing so and gave me a free welcome drink!

BTW, if you do still have a few Dutch Bros stamp cards laying around remember you can take them to dutch for a discount or freebie. Cards with at least one stamp = 50% off a drink of your choice. Cards with at least six stamps = a free drink through March 31!
