Are You Earning Miles When You Dine Out?

I am and you should too!

There is a company called Rewards Network that will reward you with airline miles (or hotel points too) simply by eating out. What’s the catch? There really isn’t one.

All you have to do is register your credit and debit card(s) with Rewards Network and anytime you use that card at a participating restaurant, you’ll earn up to 5 miles per dollar spent. It’s pretty simple:

iDine Basics

Some cities may only have a handful of restaurants that participate, and other cities may not have any at all.

Which airlines participate (links below are to the various dining programs)?

You can also earn points with other programs as well, including IHG Rewards Club points, Hilton HHonors points, etc.

When you first join, you will only earn 3 miles/points per dollar. Once you’ve dined 12 times (read that as 12 transactions hint hint hint…) you’ll make VIP status and earn 5 miles/points per dollar.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up and earn miles for travel by doing what you already were doing!
