iDine, which offers substantial miles for eating at selected restaurants with a litany of airline programs, has been running a sleuth of promotions recently. One of the better ones is that they’ll give you a 25% bonus on all of your mileage earning for 2004 if you dine 4 times at participating restaurants between November 1 and December 31, 2003. You have to register for the promotion and create a ‘dining profile’ if you haven’t already.
Personally I keep several credit cards signed up with different iDine accounts so that I can choose which airline program I’m earning miles with at any given time, as well as take advantage of different promotions. Thanks to my friend Samir for the pointer.
Gary Steiger lists a litany of other iDine promotions on his Free Frequent Flyer Miles webpage under ‘Other Programs I Like’.
Here’s an explanation of the (free) iDine program.
