Chili's Rewards Customer Loyalty With "My Chili's" Freebies & Discounts

Following the U.S. restaurant industry trend of encouraging repeat visitation with freebie and discount bribery, Chili's restaurant chain revamped the structure of its customer loyalty club in 2015.  Now a points-based loyalty program, Chili's customers are rewarded with points with every Chili's purchase, and accrued points can be redeemed for free food and beverages in the future.

  This type of points-based loyalty club is similar to the customer loyalty programs used by other restaurant chains like Claim Jumper, TGI Fridays, Dunkin Donuts, Jamba Juice, and BJ's Restaurant.

How the My Chili's Rewards Loyalty Club Works for Repeat Customers

After signing up for the My Chili's Rewards Club, customers just provide their registered phone number (or enter it themselves using the Chili's Ziosk on their table, or using the Chili's mobile app).  Once registered, My Chili's Rewards Club members earn one point for every dollar spent at a Chili's restaurant or with a Chili's delivery or takeout order.

How Customers Redeem My Chili's Rewards Points

When enough points have been accrued, those points can be redeemed for free Chili's food and beverage menu items.  You can get anything on the Chili's menu for free using your My Chili's Rewards points, but each menu item will cost a different number of points.

  For example, free chips & salsa or a free side item requires just  30 points.  A free entree of your choice requires as much as 150 points.  To put the rewards point redemption values into perspective, you'll have to spend $120 before you are eligible for a free Chili's burger or sandwich. 

The only thing customers cannot get for free with their My Chili's Rewards points is alcoholic beverages.

Signup Bonus for New My Chili's Rewards Club Registration

Just for signing up, new My Chili's Rewards customer loyalty club members will be credited with 60 My Chili's Rewards Points which can be redeemed for free food or beverages immediately.  Currently, 60 points are enough for a free dessert or a free kids meal.  It only takes 30 points to get a free side dish or chips & salsa appetizer, so those 60 bonus sign-up points can provide new members with double freebie fun.

Other Discounts, Freebies, and Benefits of the My Chili's Rewards Program

As an extra incentive, newly registered My Chili's Rewards loyalty club members are eligible to earn a free Triple Dipper appetizer plate (sampling portions of your choice of any 3 appetizers).  To earn the bonus Triple Dipper freebie, new loyalty club members must make three Chili's purchases in three separate visits within three weeks of the date of their My Chili's Rewards registration.
