Didn't see this posted.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe is offering a $5 credit when you download their free app [tropicalsmoothie.com].

Your $5 credit will not expire unless it is partially redeemed. It'll be redeemed towards your first purchase, regardless of when that takes place, so you do not need to worry about it disappearing on you before you get your first chance to visit. However, if on your first visit you redeem $4 of the $5, a 30 day expiration begins on that remaining $1.

Disclaimer: credit valid only at locations which accept the app. It appears that MANY locations accept the app at this time. According to the FAQ:

The app will be nationwide by mid-summer 2016. You can view the current list of cafes that now accept the app under "locations" in the app menu. We appreciate your patience while we bring this to all cafes as quickly as we can!"

Details here: https://www.tropicalsmoothie.com/rewards-app

*note: this is not a referral link. However, once you're in app, it provides a referral link to share with your friends with a reward of $5 when they also download the app. Note that you won't be credited with $5 until your friend spends $10. Just wanted to clarify that since it's not posted anywhere.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Thanks. I get text coupons/msgs from Tropical Smoothies. Unfortunately, there is none within 10 miles from me but I drive 15 miles with 4 of us (myself + 3 kids) when they offer free or deeply discounted smoothies.

Lol. Agreed. I guess the only thing you'd really look forward to is the $1000 level, but certainly not going out of my way to spend 1000 to acquire it. I guess I'll eventually get there...over the years LMAO

I have one in our area. The only time we even go is when they give out free smoothies for National Flip Flop Day. Well, now you need make a donation of at least $1 to get one.

Thanks you for the info on National Flipflop day. I have forgotten how I got free smoothies for my entire family.
Will definitely go there on June 17. I do not mind donating $1.00 for smoothie. The fund raising for Camp Sunchine.

For 2017 it will be on June 16th.

Yeah, I don't mind either. We always donated anyway. It used to be completely free if you wore flip flops and it was up to the person if they wanted to make a donation. The store in my area has a $1 minimum donation required for the smoothie. If you donated $5 you also got a keychain, and for $10 you got a reusable cup.

They block multiple accounts using the same credit or debit cards.

Response I received from Tropical Smoothie Support:

"Thank you for reaching out about this! Your $5 credit will not expire unless it is partially redeemed. It'll be redeemed towards your first purchase, regardless of when that takes place, so you do not need to worry about it disappearing on you before you get your first chance to visit.

However, if on your first visit you redeem $4 of the $5, a 30 day expiration begins on that remaining $1."
