Pay With OpenTable Was A Real Pain + Couple Days Left for $20 Off

OpenTable App

Earlier in the week I wrote about a new option to pay for your dines through the OpenTable app.

The main reason I wrote about this new option was due to an offer (which is still available until April 20) where you could get $20 off your bill for making a reservation and then paying through the app.

Yesterday, Kim, Lucas and I went to a restaurant in NYC to give the app a try (and obviously save $20 on our meal) and boy was it a disaster! Continue reading Pay With OpenTable Was A Real Pain + Couple Days Left for $20 Off

$20 Off When Paying With OpenTable

OpenTable App(Don’t forget to vote in my poll: Is it wrong to take amenity kits when flying in coach?)

I love using OpenTable when dining out since it’s another easy way to get something back.

There are times when we’ve earned points with OpenTable, miles/ points from one of the many dining programs and (obviously) earned points for charging our meal. This method can be a nice way to triple-dip when it comes to miles & points earning…

OpenTable recently introduced a new way to pay through their app and yesterday I received a very nice offer to give it a try. Continue reading $20 Off When Paying With OpenTable

Do you think that there is a correlation between what you eat prior to a flight and getting sick while on the plane?

I wouldn’t think that this would matter much at all but Outside Magazine thinks differently.

Outside Magazine came up with an interesting article, A Frequent Flier’s Guide To Airport Eating. Continue reading Frequent Flier’s Guide To Airport Eating

Last week I shared some exciting news for Delta business flyers about Blue Smoke being added to a bunch of new European destinations departing from JFK airport.

Here is some info from Blue Smoke:  “Blue Smoke celebrates the evolving American South and honors its culinary traditions. Inspired by the many regions of the South, from the Carolina coast to the hills of central Texas, the food is soulful with a selection of smoked meats, fresh produce, and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. Classic and specialty cocktails, an extensive American craft beer list, American wines and whiskey served by a welcoming team complete the experience.

Along with the new destinations where Blue Smoke will be on offer, so will an expanded list of menu options. Continue reading Blue Smoke’s In-Flight Delta Menu & My Picks

Less than two weeks back I shared some exciting news if you’re a craft beer fan and also happen to fly with Delta. Check out my post Cheers! Delta Adds More In-Flight Craft Beer Options.

Delta has seemed to be ahead of the culinary game so to speak when it comes to U.S. airlines.

They ordered 222,000,000 snacks in 2013 and the awesome T4 opened at JFK offering Shake Shack and other impressive food options. Continue reading Blue Smoke Being Added To More Delta Flights

Top US Airports Ranked By Food

Last year I wrote about Eater’s Airport Dining Guides which are a great way to find out about the best food at many airports.

I use the guides just about every time we fly. They’ve saved us the time of wandering around in search of better food since we could just look it up in Eater’s guide.

You can also find out about the Best Airport Food in the World in a post from a couple of months back.

I came across another useful list of airport food from Thrillist. Continue reading Top US Airports Ranked By Food

United Dining 1,000 Bonus Miles

Another day, another dining program bonus offer…

A couple of days back I wrote about an offer from American Airlines’ AAdvantage Dining where I could earn 1,000 bonus miles for dining out in three new restaurants, spending $40 or more at each one.

Last night I received the exact same offer from United’s MileagePlus DiningContinue reading United Dining 1,000 Bonus Miles

Up To 5000 Club Carlson Bonus Points for Dining

I just came across an offer from the Club Carlson Business Rewards Visa Card where I can earn up to 5,000 bonus Gold Points for dining out at restaurants.

I received the offer in the mail a while back and must’ve not noticed it. When we returned from our trip to the Balkans, our mail had piled up from a couple of weeks away so I probably just overlooked it. Continue reading Up To 5000 Club Carlson Bonus Points for Dining

Register/ Update Your Cards With Airline & Hotel Dining Programs

A great way to earn easy miles and points is with the various airline & hotel dining programs. However, one major problem that I’ve mentioned in the past is the limited amount of restaurants that participate close to home.

Odds are you won’t earn tons of points through the dining programs but they are a good way to earn some extra miles/ points and a great way to extend your accounts expiration dates.

I just received an e-mail from United MileagePlus Dining which also applies to all of the other dining program accounts.

I’ve never been one to get excited about eating at an airport before a flight but in recent years, the dining options have been greatly improving. 

With the opening of Shake Shack and other impressive food options at Delta’s Terminal 4 at JFK last May, my thoughts about airport dining began to change.

While flying to Florida over Thanksgiving, we had a connection in Atlanta. We didn’t have much time between flights. Kim, Lucas and I were happy to see Chic-fil-A, practically next door to our gate. We’re not big on fast food but we happen to think that Chic-fil-A puts out possibly the best chicken sandwich, not a bad option for an airport! On the way back home, we ate at Chic-fil-A again and noticed that The Varsity, an icon in Atlanta was pretty much attached to Chic-fil-A. I can’t vouch for the food from The Varsity but I did see people consistently ordering from them.
