I vacillate back and forth about my participation in the various dining programs. There are a few instances where a restaurant I’ve already dined at is a part of the program, so those are easy decisions. There’s also the “surprise dine”, where you go to a restaurant for dinner and get an e-mail a few days later telling you that you earned points. Those are always fun! And, there are promos like this one that make it incrementally more likely I’d visit a restaurant I don’t frequent often.
This offer is targeted, though I have no idea how broadly. And, it appears stackable with another US Airways offer I received recently:
In theory, the combination of these two offers should induce me to dine at restaurants in the program more frequently. And, that might be the case for the occasional business lunch. But, I usually let my stomach decide where to go when I’m dining out for pleasure.
All that being said, earning double miles plus 1,000 bonus miles per dine is a pretty lucrative offer for those inclined to participate.
