It seems as if recently brands have been turning to text messaging to grow their email databases, and quick service restaurant Baskin-Robbins is joining in on the fun too. Baskin Robbins now has in-store signage instructions customers to join their Birthday Club by texting “BDAY” and their email address to Baskin Robbins’ SMS short code 31310.
You can see this in-store signage in the image below.
When customers text “BDAY” and their email address to the short code 31310, they receive a text message response asking the customer to confirm their opt-in by responding “YES”. When the customer responds “YES”, they receive a text message confirmation that they’ve successfully joined Baskin-Robbins Birthday Club.
