The HootClub Rewards program (“HootClub Rewards”), is our customer loyalty program that allows you to accrue points towards free or discounted menu items, coupons, and other special rewards and benefits. You can accrue points by downloading our app and creating an account, referring friends to download the app, dining at certain participating Hooters restaurants in the United States (“Participating Restaurants”), placing to-go or delivery orders from our websites or app, or engaging in other qualifying activities. You may not accrue points from any third party or catering orders. Not all Hooters franchisees qualify as Participating Restaurants. There is no cost to join HootClub Rewards. Participation is limited to U.S. residents over the age of eighteen (18), void where prohibited, and subject to these Terms.

When you participate in HootClub Rewards, you agree to be bound by and comply with our Terms, and any additional terms that may be made available to you. Do not participate in the HootClub Rewards, and cancel your HootClub Rewards account within the app, if you do not agree to any of these Rewards Terms.  

Accounts. After downloading our app, you will be prompted to create an account. You can sign up manually, or login through the Apple or Facebook log-in extension. Please note that Apple and Facebook have different Terms of Use and Privacy Policies that you should review before enrollment. 

By downloading our app and creating an account, you will be enrolled automatically in HootClub Rewards. If you do not wish to participate in HootClub Rewards, choose the “Explore as a Guest” option within our app. Do not create an account. 

To participate in HootClub Rewards, you must complete the HootClub Rewards account registration process and provide a valid email and phone number. Additional information may be required, such as birthdate and favorite store location. An individual may only have one HootClub Rewards account.

You must use your HootClub Rewards account in accordance with these Terms and all applicable law. If you violate any of these Terms, we may terminate your account, and prevent you from creating any subsequent account, because of conduct that we determine, in our discretion, violates these Terms, any applicable law, involves fraud or misuse of our services and HootClub Rewards, or is harmful to others. 

Earning Rewards. For every dollar spent at Hooters, you receive virtual points (“Points”), valued differently depending on user level, to put towards earning special discounts, appetizers, and other rewards (“Rewards”).

You can obtain Points on any purchase in-store, in-app and online, including merchandise purchased from a Participating Restaurant, food, and non-alcoholic drinks, excluding amounts paid for tax, tip, and delivery fees and service charges (“Qualifying Purchase”). No points are awarded on dollars spent on the purchase of gift cards, online merchandise, alcoholic beverages, or vape products. Points have no cash or property value. Purchases made prior to joining HootClub Rewards are not eligible to earn Points. 

To earn Points, you must scan your receipt of purchase barcode, found at the bottom of your receipt, or enter the number found with the barcode manually within the app. No receipts that are more than thirty (30) days old can be scanned or manually entered into the HootClub app. When you manually enter a barcode, your Points may take up to forty-eight (48) hours to appear in your account.

Occasionally, in our sole discretion, we may offer ways to receive Points or Rewards for non-purchase activities (“Qualifying Activities”).  Qualifying Activities may include birthdays, holidays or other events.

Changes to Program. Hooters reserves the right to change or modify HootClub at any time and in our discretion. If Hooters makes changes to these Terms, we will provide necessary notice in accordance with the law. 

Location Features. If you have enabled location-based features on your mobile device, or use our Wi-Fi services, you acknowledge that your mobile device’s location may be tracked and shared with others consistent with our Privacy Policy. Our app allows you to disable some location-based features or manage preferences related to them.  


From time to time, Hooters may offer promotions through either in-store dining options or HootClub Rewards that include additional discounts on food and merchandise, free food, or other rewards to HootClub Rewards members (a “Promotion”). HootClub Rewards membership eligibility requirements apply. Promotions offered through our services are only available at Participating Restaurants. 

Promotion Disclaimers. Promotions are subject to additional terms and conditions appended to the Promotion (“Promotion Disclaimer”). If there is any discrepancy between the Promotion Disclaimer and these Terms, the Promotion Disclaimer will govern. 

Promotion Expiration. Each Promotion is only valid for the period specified in the Promotion Disclaimer. Promotions end at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the expiration date unless indicated otherwise. Promotions are not automatically added to your order total. To redeem Promotions,
you must activate the Promotion within the app by pressing the ‘Redeem’ button and give the resulting code to the attending service professional prior to making payment. Each Promotion is one-time use per customer only and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or Promotion even if the purchase is less than the total promotional credit value. If your Promotion is for a percentage discount, Hooters reserves the right to cap the amount of the promotional credit. The Promotion is not valid on prior orders, prior purchases, or pre-orders items. Promotion is non-transferable and may not be shared, resold, auctioned, or traded.

Changes to Promotions. Hooters reserves the right to modify or discontinue any Promotion at any time.
