Pie Dough Club & DOUGH Card Q&A
Pie Dough Club and DOUGH Cards
We now have a new DOUGH card that is designed as gift and loyalty reward cards combined into one! Use either one (Pie Dough Club card or DOUGH Card) as a gift card only and/or register the card and instantly become a member of the Pie Dough Club. After registering you can now load and reload your account with pre-paid credit (also known as stored/added value) and choose to pay at the register using this added/stored value or from your rewards earned. Easy as PIE!
What is the loyalty rewards program and how do I join?
The Pie Dough Club is designed to reward loyal guests of the Grand Traverse Pie Company. It is a special program that gives registered members immediate benefits and lots of exciting perks.
There are three easy ways to pick from to join:
- Visit a participating GT Pie location and tell your Customer Service person that you would like to join the Pie Dough Club. A card will be activated and given to you; all you need to do then is REGISTER your new card on our website.
- Register online without a card and receive a virtual card number that can be exchanged for a physical card at any GT Pie Shop you would like. Your information and account balance will transfer. Otherwise, you can use your phone number each time you come in and remain cardless.
- Download our GT Pie Mobile app for your Apple or Android phone and then check in using your app each time you come into our shop. Your account will be on our register and you can pay by using your rewards or with stored value funds.
What do I get and how do I earn rewards?
Once you join the Pie Dough Club and register the card online at gtpie.com, you’re able to earn points that convert to Pie Dough Bucks that can be spent in our shop as well as other perks. They are:
- A FREE slice of fruit pie when you register your card. Expires one year after the reward is issued and is for a one time use.
- $10 Pie Dough Bucks Reward for every 150 points earned. You will earn one point for every dollar you spend (excluding tax and tip). When you reach 150 points they will be converted to $10 in Pie Dough Bucks which will automatically be loaded on your Pie Dough Club account. Bucks are good for purchases of food, beverages, and retail items. Expires one year after the reward is issued.
- A FREE slice of pie a la mode or a FREE 6” fruit pie for your birthday. Expires one year after the reward is issued.
Is there anything that I don’t earn points for?
Yes, you will not earn points for gift card purchases, online purchases, taxes, gratuity, or purchases made with Rewards.
How can I join the Pie Dough Club Rewards program using the mobile app?
I currently have a physical Pie Dough Club/DOUGH card that has rewards and added/stored value and have already registered the card.
Since you already registered the card, this means you have created a username and password so all you have to do is download the app for your Apple device or for your Android device. Enter your username and password which was initially used to create your account then click on Sign In; you will then be able to use the App to check in at the shop and pay using your phone.
How do I join the Pie Dough Club using the mobile app? I currently do not have a club membership.
Download the app for your Apple device or for your Android device here. Once you have downloaded the app, register your information on the app. Then you are ready to check in, show the customer service person your 3 digit check in code, and use this feature to pay with your rewards or added/stored value available on your account.
I am a Pie Dough Club member and someone has given me a new DOUGH card gift card, can I combine this gift card with my Pie Dough Club account?
Yes, you can combine these gifts onto your DOUGH/Pie Dough Club account.
- Login to your account
- See Summary of Accounts, click on the “+” sign next to your account number
- “Add a Card” will pop up, enter new card number. An unregistered or registered card may be added to your account.
- If additional new card is unregistered enter card number and reg codes, for a registered card enter username and password. Click on Submit.
- Now the card has been attached to your account, you can view this account info as a sub account within your existing master account.
- Now click on the tab of the newly added card and click “Merge card”. It will ask for confirmation.
- Once merged the balances will include those from both accounts. Either card can be used to call up the combined account.
- If you want us to help combine your cards call 231-929-7841 x3.
Why do I have to register my card?
Card registration is needed to redeem any reward. Registering also allows you to manage your account and track activity, such as points balance and rewards earned. It also allows us to replace your card in the event it is lost or stolen.
Email will be used to alert you of rewards or perks available. Please make sure to add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your contact list or check your “promotions” folder to ensure you will receive notifications about your rewards.
Also, cards must be registered to load value using the app or the website. You do not need to be registered to add value at the shop. If your card is lost or stolen you card must be registered for us to replace the card with the value that was on it at the time you notify us of its loss.
What should I do if my Pie Dough Club/DOUGH Card is lost or stolen?
If your Pie Dough Club/DOUGH Card is registered, your Pie Dough Club membership and any remaining balance on the DOUGH Card will be protected from the time you notify us of its loss. To report your Pie Dough Club/DOUGH Card lost or stolen, Contact Us via our website or call us at 231-9297841 x3 and leave a message, we will get back to you during the same day or next business day. We’ll freeze your remaining balance at that time, transfer it to a new Pie Dough Club/DOUGH Card and mail you the card replacement if you want a physical card. We cannot replace unregistered Pie Dough Club/DOUGH Cards
Who can join?
How do I use my Pie Dough Bucks?

Yes, you can combine up to five cards. See the FAQ question explaining how to do this on our website or Contact Us so we can help combine those cards.
Can I let someone else use my points?
Only the registered rewards program member may use the card to redeem points for rewards. However, you can bring someone else along to a participating GT Pie location. If you have enough points for a reward and you pay the check you may treat someone using your points.
Can I combine my points with another person’s points?
No, points from multiple member accounts may not be combined.
Can I share a membership with my spouse or other family member?
Pie Dough Club is intended for individual personal use only, however we realize family members might share a card.

The one registered member is the only one eligible for registration or birthday rewards too.
Does my account ever expire?
Active accounts will never expire. However Pie Dough Club accounts with no activity for 18 months will be deactivated and all points & rewards credits will be forfeited. Any stored value amounts will remain on the account.
Can I earn points when I purchase a gift card?
No, points are earned for food, beverage, and retail item purchases only (excluding tax and tip).
