Do you like to go out to eat?

Do you like to save money?

Who doesn’t, right?  I’ve made it no secret here on the Twin Cities Restaurant Blog that I love a good deal.  Simply check out all the links in the left sidebar under Coupons & Other Deals.

I’ve got a new one to tell you about today….. iDine.com

iDine is a free rewards program where you can earn up to 15% back by dining at any of our 10,000 restaurants and bars nationwide. Enroll with your credit/debit card and then all you have to do is eat, earn and enjoy! Every time you visit a participating location, pay for your meal with the debit or credit card you registered with, complete a quick survey about your experience (emailed to you after your visit) and your savings are tracked and released to you as an American Express Reward Card.

The percentage you can earn is based on your level of activity in the program over the course of the year (by anniversary date):

Level One: Earn 5% back when your annual dining amount at participating locations is under $250

Level Two: Bump up to 10% back when your annual dining amount at participating locations is between $250 to $749

Level Three: You’re a professional diner and therefore earn 15% back when your annual dining amount at participating locations is $750 or more

iDine branded American Express Reward Cards are mailed out each time you’ve earned at least $20 or more and can be used anywhere American Express is accepted.

There are many restaurants in the Twin Cities that work with iDine so that you can get money back when you eat out.  Some of my favorites include:

I could seriously go on and on, there are so many local restaurants!! Sounds cool, right?
