Why the new program?

We listened our customers and ditched the traditional plastic card, beefed up the rewards and put earning and redeeming rewards back in the hands of our customers.

Can I still use my Frequent Flyer card?

The Frequent Flyer card will no longer double as a loyalty card after October 1st but it will continue to be used as a Gift Card.

Are there still Seasonal Upgrade and Random Rewards at the register? 

No. These rewards will be retired after October 1st.

Can I sign up and use Thanx without a smartphone? 

Yes. You can sign up on the web by going to The web version of the app works just like the phone app. Just sign in at to view and use your account via the web.

Why does Thanx need my credit card? 

The credit/debit card used to register with Thanx is how we securely connect rewards to you. Neither Thanx nor Flying Star see or store your credit card information. When you register your card with the Thanx app, your card number is encrypted with bank-level security and sent directly from your phone to the card network (Visa, MasterCard, etc.). They enroll your card with Thanx and send us a notification when you use it to make a purchase at a Flying Star location. Thanx will not and cannot charge your card.

Does Thanx share my personal information? 

No. Thanx does NOT share your personal information with anyone, including the merchants you shop with.

Can I use multiple credit cards to earn rewards?

Yes! Any card you have registered to your Thanx account will earn rewards at participating merchants. You can add as many cards as you would like and any transactions made with any linked card will accrue rewards progress. Simply go to “Registered Cards” in the Thanx app menu to add more cards.

How can I use Cash? 

If you would like to use cash for a transaction, no problem! Simply send a picture of your receipt to The app includes a button to take and send the picture!

Do Gift Card purchases count towards my account? 

Yes. Purchases of Gift Cards with cash or a registered credit/debit card count towards rewards progress.

Can I use my Thanx account at both Flying Star and Satellite? 

Yes. Your Thanx account can be used at Flying Star Cafe and Satellite Coffee locations, however rewards are earned separately at each brand. Rewards cannot be accrued or redeemed at UNM Satellite campus locations.
