Back in April 2014 I wrote about City Dining Cards – the concept, was a deck of cards, 52 that offered $10 off on $30 purchases at 50 restaurants plus two bonus cards for freebies. The cost to you was a mere $20. The cards were and are good through December 2015. They sold out, they are no more!
The Buffalo based company has just launched their City Dining App in Baltimore and Buffalo. The cost to you is nada, zero, zippo –FREE not just for the app, but you get restaurant discounts at 50 handpicked Baltimore restaurants FREE – Yes FREE if you have an iPhone. Android users, like me, will have to wait for our version. The discount applies to your FOOD, spend $20 on food get $5 off or spend $40 on food get $10 off. That is not all, once you have eaten at 12 of the locations in 12 months you get a $20 credit towards any one of the participating restaurants. As the app grows, you will be able to use it in multiple cities.
Listen to the PODCAST at Baltimore Internet Radio and the Dining Dish interview of Will Glass of City Dining App as he explains in greater detail how the program works. It is quite simple, simple for the user and simple for the staff at the restaurants to execute. If you keep your GPS off on your phone, you will need to turn it on to check out at the restaurant.
Show your iPhone to the server who will confirm the minimum was spent, when they bring the adjusted bill to the table, they will re-confirm the discount with a back up second validation so there are no accidental redemptions. Once that restaurant has redeemed the discount it will disappear for 90 days.
These discounts are not applicable with any other promotion or discount program being run by the restaurant. For example, they can’t be used during Restaurant Week, with a coupon, etc.
