These have been lean times for those who became accustomed to bulking up their loyalty accounts with generous bonuses through the airline and hotels’ miles-for-dining programs, operated by Rewards Network (previously iDine).
This new promotion may not be as lucrative as those offered in years past, but it’s still worth a look.
The same basic promotion, dubbed the Get Ahead Bonus, is on offer across a range of programs. The offer:
After spending at least $75 at program restaurants by March 31 and reviewing each restaurant within 30 days of the qualifying dine, members will earn two bonus airline miles or three hotel points for every subsequent $1 spent through April 30. Registration is required.
Links to the promotion landing pages and registration forms are below.
- Alaska Mileage Plan
- American AAdvantage
- Delta SkyMiles
- United Mileage Plus
- US Airways Dividend Miles
Deal or No Deal
The bonus is modest, and the terms are overly complicated and cumbersome.
Still, if you eat out regularly and live in an area where there are restaurants that participate in Rewards Network, earning miles for meals is a no-brainer. And earning more miles is always better than the alternative.
