  • Wish we had more offers like that for existing users.

    • Same 🙁

    • I agree. Then I would actually use the dining programs more

    • I was just thinking that. The AA one doesn’t seem to offer very many existing user bonuses.
      I did get an offer for 250 miles under the United one after I hadn’t used the account for quite sometime. It was 250 for any eligible dine with no minimum requirement.

      • Yes. But, does the airline offer the bonus or does the company that runs all these dining programs offer it. Usually, it seems like it’s the dining program company, like the introductory offers, or got one from United for an 500 points each purchase with no minimum for up to 3 uses, where the points showed up on the dining program before posting on my Mileageplus account Sometimes there are offers that seem to be from the airline program themselves, like the AA offer for making transactions from the dining program, shopping program ect, if you hadn’t made transactions with them since a date certain (about a year earlier).

    • Yea they don’t do much for existing customers.

    • I was thinking the same exact thing…

  • Shoot. Looks like I am already a member.

  • I like that they have the AA dinning, but most of the restaurants are not that good. They usually are poor low end restaurants that no one would usually go to.

    Wish they had better offers. Or even do it with some fast food chains. McDonalds anyone?

  • Great but hope they could expand the residency requirement!

  • I already have my Chase Sapphire Reserve set up for SkyMiles dining. Do I need to register a different credit card to take advantage of the AA dining program?

  • I enjoy using the rewards dining network to find interesting restaurants in the places I travel

    There are a few that aren’t so good, but others that are great and I never would have found them without the rewards program.

    There are several Fast food chains that participate, but it’s regional. I know in NJ it’s Burger King and near San Diego it’s Wendy’s.

    I agree that I wish there were more bonuses for existing users.

    • I need some places near me like that where I can complete a transaction by buying a cup of coffee, for those infrequent ‘no minimum’ offers.

  • lorem ipsum says:

    Until September 30, Chase Freedom earns 5x on restaurants. Stack!

  • There used to be great bonuses for existing users. Plus, elite members used to get 10 miles per dollar spent, as opposed to 5 per dollar now.

  • To get offered 1500 AA miles for only spending $25 on dining is an incredible offer. The 500 miles after offers are easy to achieve also.

  • Earning miles through dining needs to come to Canada!!

  • Perfect timing, just coached my daughter-in-law over the weekend on adding to her mileage earnings through this avenue.

  • The good old marketing term “up to.”

  • These are absolutely great ways to keep miles active and gain additional miles eating at restaurants you eat at anyway. I have found a few I really like and eat at frequently.

  • yeah these are only good for a one time shot for new subscribers.

  • They should reward existing users rather than looking for new users all the time

  • It’ll be super great if the dining program expands to international locations.

  • Wish they gave kudos to existing members. I joined quite a while ago. I haven’t been able to take advantage of it though – the only restaurants listed are downtown, where parking is a problem, about 40 miles away from where I live. Someday I’ll use it though.

  • This seems like a great thing to earn extra rewards – the problem is that there are not any restaurants on “the list” where I live. Is the program going to make an effort to expand the restaurant list in the coming months??

    • Highly unlikely you’ll see any significant expansion; maybe one new restaurant?

    • JOSEPH HONEK says:

      There is a way to suggest restaurants to be added to the program
      But it is up the the owner of the restaurant to join the program.

      HOWEVER it is my understanding that the program manager (Rewards Network)
      does take a real “BITE” out the the merchants credit card settlement as a fee.

  • I agree that I wish they had more promotions for existing members. Dining program is great way to keep miles active. Wish I had been using it years ago

  • Not a bad promo. I took advantage of the last one they had and got bonuses for my husband and myself. Then when United did the same promo I participated in the dining for them too. It would be nice to have promos for existing but well, I’ll never hold my breath for that. Most companies want more customers, etc and therefore only have promos for new users. At least I get miles for dining. Mile programs have come a long way from flights only.

  • Would be more useful if more restaurants outside the US participated. Is there any way to earn a few thousand AA miles relatively quickly right now?
