There’s a new parody video in town — and its name is “LUNCH.” An homage to LMFAO’s “Shots” music video, Josh Hyman and the other funny folks behind “LUNCH” give OpenTable reservations and our Dining Rewards program a nice little shout-out at around the 2:50 mark. Happy lunching, @MrJoshHyman!
I saw an @OpenTable tweet yesterday that said, “Opentable is a convenient way to reserve at restaurants but does anyone really care about their “Dining Points”?” I was glad to hear that this diner clearly loves our service, but I’m also disappointed that he’d not been taking full advantage of every benefit that comes with using OpenTable — especially our Dining Rewards Program.
Simply put, Dining Rewards Points are like frequent flyer miles for foodies. When you make a restaurant reservation through OpenTable (and honor it), Dining Rewards Points are automatically awarded to your OpenTable account. Standard reservations earn 100 Dining Rewards Points each, but you can earn 1,000 points at a time at select restaurants at select times (look for the “Earn Free Meals Faster/See 1,000 Point Restaurants” link under “Offers and Events” on your OpenTable webpage).
Diners are eligible for a Dining Cheque (good at any restaurant in the OpenTable network) as soon as they earn 2,000 Dining Rewards Points (good for a $20 Dining Cheque) or more. In the U.S., Dining Cheques are available in three denominations: $20, $50 (5,000 points), and $100 (10,000 points). Dining Rewards Points are easily redeemed right on OpenTable.
