 Rewards Program

 Golden Corral offers the Golden Corral Rewards Program (the “Rewards Program“) to reward and thank our loyal restaurant customers.  The Rewards Program is available to enrolled members at participating Golden Corral restaurants in the United States.  Rewards accumulated under the Rewards Program are promotional and have no cash value.  There are no membership fees associated with the Rewards Program. 

 Eligibility:  You may enroll in the Rewards Program if you: (1) are a legal resident of the United States (for clarification, including but not limited to, Puerto Rico); (2) at least 18 years of age at the time you enroll; (3) have an active, valid e-mail address; and (4) are a human being.  No corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, or other legal entities can participate in the Rewards Program.

The Rewards Program is not targeted towards, nor intended for use by, anyone under the age of 18. 

 Enrollment/Rewards Account:  You can enroll in the Rewards Program and create a Rewards Program account (“Rewards Account”) in one of the following ways:

Click here to create a Rewards Account;

Visit the Golden Corral website located at www.GoldenCorral.com/Rewards; or

Through your Facebook account using the App.

Your Rewards Account is personal to you and may not be sold, transferred or assigned to, or shared with family, friends or others.  You may have only one (1) Rewards Account. 

As a part of the Rewards Program, Golden Corral will send you transactional, informational, and promotional messages and/or offers.  These communications may happen in the form of push notifications through the App, email, and/or any other ways you may have selected when you enrolled in the Rewards Program.  If your contact information changes, or if you wish to change your contact information or the method by which we send you messages, please log into your Rewards Account and update your contact information or preferences.

Rewards:  You will earn and receive Points (as defined below) toward Rewards (as defined below) as follows: 

Qualifying Purchases:  Subject to the these Terms and Conditions, and except as otherwise described below, you will earn and receive Points toward Rewards by making purchases of our food and non-alcoholic beverages either online and/or at participating Golden Corral restaurants (both Golden Corral company-operated restaurants and franchisee-operated restaurants) (“qualifying purchases”) and, thereafter, by your completing the Purchase Registration (defined below)  within 72 hours of your qualified purchase. You will not earn Points from a qualified purchase if you fail complete the Purchase Registration for the qualified purchase within such 72-hour period.  You will earn one Point per $1 of a qualified purchase. Change of $0.51 and higher from your qualified purchase will be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar when determining Points earned per qualified purchase, however, change of $0.50 or less from your qualified purchase as reflected on your receipt will not earn any Point (and nor will you earn any fraction or percentage of a Point in connection with any such $0.50 or less change amount). You will not earn Points towards an earned Reward for the purchase of a Golden Corral® gift card (whether purchased online, in a restaurant location or from a third-party retailer) (a “Gift Card”). To clarify, any purchase of a Gift Card is not a qualified purchase for purposes of the Rewards Program, but you will earn Points when redeeming a Gift Card as a form of payment towards a qualified purchase. Please note that single-use promotional bonus cards are not Gift Cards, and you will not earn Points when redeeming these cards (that is, any purchase from the use of a single-use promotional bonus card is not a qualified purchase for purposes of the Rewards Program. Points cannot be redeemed for or applied toward the purchase of any alcoholic beverage or Gift Cards. Points are earned on qualified purchases after all discounts have been applied (such as, by way of example and not limitation, senior discounts) and before taxes and gratuities. For clarification, a qualified purchase under the Rewards Program does not include any charges or amounts paid for any alcoholic beverage, sales taxes and server tips/gratuities.

Purchase Registration:  To receive Points for a qualified purchase, use a QR code scanner at the register to scan your Rewards ID in the App, or, within 72 hours of such purchase, either scan the bar code on the receipt from your purchase with the built in scanner in the App or enter the code on your receipt into the App (a “Purchase Registration”),. Receipts are verified through the point of sale system. If the verification is unsuccessful, you will receive an error message and/or notification. If this verification is successful, the Points to which you are entitled will be applied to your Rewards Account. You can track the Points and Rewards you have already earned and that you may earn in the future by logging into your Rewards Account History.

Social Media Sharing & Referral Bonuses:  You can also receive extra Points for every Facebook friend you refer who joins our Rewards Program and starts earning Points. Your extra Points will not be awarded until the referred member enrolls in the Rewards Program using your invite code and earns their first Point.  

You can also share your Golden Corral® experience on your personal Facebook page through the App. You have the option to make your comment public, but please note that by making your comment public, you are deemed to provided us with consent to use your comment on the Golden Corral website, Facebook page, and/or other social media outlets freely and without any payment to you.

Rewards:  By accumulating 100 Points in your Rewards Account, you will earn $10 off your next purchase (a “Reward“), which you may redeem at participating Golden Corral® restaurants (both Golden Corral company-operated restaurants and franchisee-operated restaurants). Once you earn a Reward, you may start accumulating Points towards another Reward. You may bank Rewards (“Banked Rewards”) to redeem multiple Banked Rewards at a later date. Banked Rewards are not required to be redeemed at one time, and can be redeemed in any amount from $1 to $100. Any Banked Rewards not redeemed will remain Banked in your Rewards Account. A Reward may only be combined with Banked Rewards and may not be combined with any other offer or coupon. Rewards may not be redeemed for the purchase of any alcoholic beverage or Gift Cards. Points and Rewards are valid for only 365 days from the most recent activity on your Rewards Account (“activity” means either you have completed a Purchase Registration pertaining to a qualified purchase to add Points to your Rewards Account or you have redeemed a Reward from your Rewards Account). For clarification, if there is no activity on your Rewards Account for more than 365 consecutive days, all Points and/or Rewards in your Rewards Account will at such time expire.  In addition, if you request in writing (electronic or otherwise) that we delete your Personal Information (as defined in our Privacy Policy) which we use to contact or identify you, then all of your Points and Rewards, if any, under your Rewards Account will immediately expire, and you will not be able to redeem any Points or Rewards upon our deletion of your Personal Information.

Additional Points and Rewards: Additional opportunities to earn Points or Rewards through participation in member surveys, feedback or participating in certain games offered by Golden Corral may become available nationally or locally.

Additional Rewards Program Terms:  Golden Corral reserves the right to terminate your Rewards Account and/or your participation in the Rewards Program if we determine in our sole discretion that you have violated these Terms and Conditions, you have more than one (1) Rewards Account, or that the use of your Rewards Account is unauthorized, deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful. Golden Corral may, in its sole discretion, suspend, cancel, or combine Rewards Accounts that appear to be duplicative, and may refuse to allow you to re-enroll in the Rewards Program.  Golden Corral also reserves the right to “unregister” and make ineligible for the Rewards Program any Rewards Account (and thereby all Points and/or Rewards thereunder are deemed expired) that has been inactive for 24 months. A Rewards Account is “inactive” if for a 24 month period no Points have been earned or no Points and/or Rewards in such account have been redeemed.   

Golden Corral has the right at any time, with or without giving you prior notice, to:

  • End, cancel  or suspend the Rewards Program and/or any specific Reward;
