HAPPY STAR REWARDS™ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Happy Star Rewards™?
The Happy Star Rewards™ app is a loyalty program where we reward our fans for visiting Hardee’s® restaurants. It’s simple. The more times you check-in, the more rewards you'll win on The Wheel of Awesome™.
How do I get Happy Star Rewards™ on my phone?
It's easy. Just download it for free from the iTunes App Store or Android Marketplace.
How much does the Happy Star Rewards™ app cost?
Nada. It's totally free. Think of it as a big, premium, charbroiled hug.

Your location lets us confirm you’re in a restaurant when you check-in. You can still access the rest of the app, but when you hit "Check-In" you’ll always be prompted to give us your location.
