Awkward Payment Options and No Prices.

They accept Apple Pay and presumably other mobile payment, but you can’t pay with multiple gift cards or combine a gift card with Apple Pay. I don’t want to give out my card numbers. Apple Pay is infinitely more secure. I’ve read of people having their cards used across the country after giving them to Sonic’s app. They need to let you combine multiple gift cards so you can zero out the balance in their app and also let you combine gift cards with mobile payment for better security and convenience. That way you only have to enter the cards once in Apple Pay and then you can use them anywhere far more securely. It should be the standard payment option. Taco Bell and Panera do payments right in thei app. Sonic is backwards so you can’t use up a gift card without swiping it at a kiosk or giving your card number out and risking a data breach. Please fix the problems and allow us to combine at least two gift cards plus any mobile payments for the full balance without needing to deal with the kiosks or give up our card numbers. It’s just common sense to let folks use Apple Pay and multiple gift cards to pay with the app. Why would you make it harder for people to pay? Also when are you going to communicate with stores so the prices show up before checking out? Sonic is the only app I know that doesn’t show prices in their app menu and cart as you add items.

It’s ok but needs improvement

My husband and I both have this app on our phones. My husband struggles every time because his app never has the featured items listed. We’ve both struggled with the order not being ready when we get there even though we picked the ASAP option. We still have to wait after we check in for it to be made. Not sure they know what ASAP means. Occasionally we arrive to pick up our preordered items and they don’t even HAVE the order but we’ve been charged for them. Also, our local store charges you for add on items you ordered but are out of. This happens a lot. I do like the convenience of being able to hand my kids the phone and they pick out what they want and put it in the “bag.” I like the “thought” of our meal being ordered already and being made while I’m on the way to pick it up…..just not really seeing this feature utilized. I would also like to be able to order from my phone app and my husband go pick it up except if I have my phone at home it says out of range to be able to check into a stall #. This is most inconvenient. This is why my husband got the app on his phone. But like I said, he struggles more with his because it never has the new featured items listed. Needs improvement, but thanks for trying.

It’s okay.

Honestly I order through the sonic app every time because it’s so easy. HOWEVER I go to sonic very often with friends and we all want to order at the same time but we can’t. The app won’t let multiple orders go through which I just don’t get because there are multiple people in the car. So ordering through the app is a hassle that way because we all do it. It makes for such a long wait time. Another thing is that we should be able to put multiple cards on the app or be able to have multiple payment options which would once again make life with friends so much easier. On my last note we should be able to tip on the app. I hardly have cash anymore and I want to tip these hard working people but I can’t. Most of my sonic trips are spontaneous so I don’t plan ahead to have cash. Plus sonic pays these poor people like dirt. They run the kitchen and car hop and make half minimum wage !? Are you joking? And most people don’t tip them. A year ago I didn’t even know I was supposed to tip these people because I didn’t see sonic as a restaurant but now knowing how much they pay people is ridiculous. PAY THEM MORE. And one last thing. I get sonic a lot and there are no perks with that. With how much I spend I would love a rewards system. Not just a “deal” like a you spend this much you get this much in return type of thing. Like a loyalty program to earn points or something. Would love that. The app is okay but once again there are issues that I would love to be addressed.
