Our offers are also based on availability and are subject to change at any time without notice. For you who have signed up for a membership in the App, you may also sign up for our subscriptions and pre-order your products and pick them up in any coffee shop (see more about these parts below).

2.3 If you are a student, you will receive access to selected student offers and discounts if you can show a valid student ID via the App.

2.4 You can take advantage of these offers by making payment with your debit or credit card in the App or by first activating the offer in the App and then paying with your digital Coffee Card or scanning the barcode for your membership in one of our coffee shops.
