No. My Red Lobster Rewards is extra special, so you need to sign up through the app to get in on the point-earning action.
DO I GET ANY PERKS FOR SIGNING UP?
Yes, you’ll automatically get 75 bonus points as a welcome gift, so you will be just 50 points away from your first delicious Reward.

HOW DO I GET POINTS FOR MY PURCHASES?
It’s all about your receipt. Touch the “Scan my Receipt” button in the app, and your phone will switch to the camera view. Then, hold your phone over the QR code at the bottom of the receipt. This will scan the code for your purchase and the points will be added to your account right away.
When you earn a reward, it takes about 24 hours to appear in your account. Please note that you can’t scan the same receipt more than once, you can only scan 2 receipts within 24 hours, and you can’t scan receipts more than 90 days old.
I CAN’T SCAN THE QR CODE ON MY RECEIPT. CAN I STILL GET POINTS FOR MY MEAL?
