Frequently Asked Questions
Q. May I bring guests on my Any 20 Plan?
A. No, the Any 20 Plan is a nontransferable meal for your use only.
Q. Will I be able to use the Any 20 plan at cash operations locations? Will point values be active there?
A. Yes, the Any 20 plan can be used at cash operations locations as in the past. Only one meal exchange may be used per meal deal or one meal swipe per transaction. You may use multiple swipes in a meal period, but only one per transaction. The point values are 2 for breakfast periods, 3 for lunches, 5 for dinners, and 3 for the new late night/snack (starts at 8 p.m., after dinner).
Example: A lunchtime purchase at The Quarry exceeds the exchange value. You can apply one meal swipe toward the cost of the item(s) but that you cannot use three swipes to buy the item(s) outright. You could buy the item(s) with a swipe and personal declining balance in one transaction then use another swipe for other items in another transaction.
