Monthly Meal Coupon

Hi Emre,

We are providing our customers with Monthly Meal Coupon. Once purchased the customer can have 3 meals a day and is valid for 30 days only.

i am trying to configure the Coupon method in order to do this.

Firstly i want to manage the customer name and other information in the Coupon Entity.

Secondly would it be possible when the coupon is scanned the particular gift item will be automatically added based on the time. We provide set dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So if its morning 6 - 12 then breakfast item should be automatically selected as a gift item.

Please help.

Thanks

evail

Nice idea, I already read that. Seems like a case SambaPOS can handle but additional implementation might needed for easier date handling. I'll test that as soon as I finish my current tasks.

Hello, I've ever tried to make this about drinks.

Maybe you have already done this but, If you print coupons, in custom field as redeemed, instead of "yes" or "no" value, you can set "3 remaining" "2 remaining" "1 remaining" and "fully used"

Amuary, that would be a good work around.

Since the customer is buying for 1 month in advance, we would assume he will come everyday 3 times, but what if he misses breakfast, or lunch?

Oh sorry, I didn't understand your intention. I thought that was a coupon with only 3 meals credits. Actually your customer buy a coupons for 3 free meals everyday for one month. maybe a way to do this, it s to set three custom fields value on coupons like breakfast redeemed, lunch redeemed... With " yes" or "no" value for each. and update a reset about this value every day (after end work period action/rules for exemple). Like this customer can only take one breakfast, one lunch... and even if he missed a meal a day, the next morning all redeemed custom field   are reset to"no" value.

And maybe about time product you can add a custom field "time" on coupon entity. when you add a coupon, time ticket value is update and then you add constraint about this time. Like if custom field "time" value is less 12, add product breakfast on ticket as gift ...  maybe... Because I've never tried setting like this

We can create three time triggers (like happy hour) to update "Active Service Type" setting and when we open a ticket it can read "Active Service Type" setting to update the Ticket State. Ticket's Service state can have three values. Breakfast, Lunch and dinner. So when we create gifting rules we can check tickets Service state. For example while adding an order we can create a rule to check "If ticket's service state is Breakfast and Product group is Breakfast"
