Skip has teamed up with CafeSmart in an exciting move! 

We’re pulling together the forces of good coffee, goodwill and good-old community spirit to help those experiencing homelessness. 

You might not know that 42% of people experiencing homelessness are under 25. 

CafeSmart and it’s generous band of cafes are supporting amazing organisations like Youth Futures to help these young people. 

“With the support from CafeSmart, we are able to provide young people with care packs which include a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, a brush, deodorant, underpants and socks. You would be amazed with the transformation and confidence that can occur immediately once a young person has had access to a good meal, a warm shower and a safe place to sleep for the night." – Youth Futures.

If you had the power to never wait again, would you use it? Most people would say, “of course!”, some may say, “nah, waiting isn’t that bad” but we just think, “why wouldn’t you?” So, we’ll ask you a different question; if you could skip the wait every time you order food and coffee from Australia’s best cafes, would you? Of course you would. 

Skip is more than an app that lets you quit queueing for coffee and food. I mean it's pretty great that you can pre-order and pay to save you heaps of time in your busy day, but there's so much more to it.

Cardless, cashless, queueless. It's time to embrace the digital wallet and leave your receipt jammed wallet at home. Skip lets you pay securely online so you can forget about having cash or your wallet next time the need for coffee and food strikes. If your food and coffee is a tax deduction, or you just enjoy keeping track of your expenditure, you'll love Skip’s weekly invoice outlining your expenses.

Skip is also a brilliant way to discover your nearest waitless coffee when you’re exploring new cities or suburbs. If you’ve wandered off the edge of your coffee map, just jump into Skip, tap SEE NEARBY VENUES  and it’ll show you a list of your nearest venues and how far away they are. How good is that? Just tap on the venue for its address and other helpful information such as their brand of coffee or varieties milk, opening hours and venue amenities such as parking, wheelchair access, pet-friendly, pram friendly, etc.

Are you the type of person that gets a rush when the barista tells you they have a loyalty program? Uh huh! Well you can forget about treating that stamped coffee card like a magical ticket to destination caffeination. Skip has built-in loyalty so you never need to keep track of it. And even if you put your phone through the wash, your Skip loyalty will be waiting for you when you log into the app on your new phone.

You'll notice when you've reached your loyalty goal on your regular order with the appearance of a red heart and the word 'Free'. To redeem just order your coffee as usual and it will automatically be redeemed. Magic!

(By the way Kinship & Co in Melbourne’s CBD gives you a free coffee every 5th order and Scout's Honour in Sydney every 7th.)
