Here’s what you need to know about Chick-fil-A One:

What is it? 

The “tiered membership program” gives customers the chance to earn points with each purchase. And new this week, Chick-fil-A is adding online catering orders to the roster for point-earning, meaning orders placed online or via the Chick-fil-A app, including catered meals, will give you points to redeem at a later date.

Member perks

There are three membership tiers: the Chick-fil-A One, the Chick-fil-A One Silver and the Chick-fil-A One Red memberships.

All tiers offer free food rewards, bonus free food rewards and a birthday reward. The silver and red memberships both also offer gift rewards for friends and family, plus meal donations on your behalf. Red members get sneak peeks at insider content, including new menu items.

Each tier gives you increasing benefits. For every dollar earned, members receive 10 points, then 11 (Silver) or 12 (Red). 

You move up the tiers based on how much you spend (or how many points you earn). To become a silver member, for example, you’ll need to spend about $90 on Chick-fil-A in a year, earning you 1,000 points. 

Aiming for the elite red level? If you cough up $417 on Chick-fil-A each year, racking up 5,000 points, you’ll be eligible for the top tier.
