And once signed up, there are also some current strong bonuses for eating out frequently at participating restaurants.
Via Rapid Travel Chai, you need to log into your account to see what bonuses you’re being offered.
The American AAdvantage-branded version of the program has a live offer of 10,000 bonus miles after 10 dines of $40 or more by August 15, 2014.
There’s a United offer as well for 5000 miles after 10 dines of $40 or more by August 15 as well.
Be sure to read How to Earn Miles for Dining Out at Restaurants. It includes a list of all of the dining programs, and you can check with each once logged in to see what big bonuses may be offered to you.
You can always buy $40+ gift cards at your favorite restaurants if you need additional dines, and then use those gift cards to pay for future meals. And do so with your registered card, of course, attached to the relevant dining program.. hopefully one like Chase Sapphire Preferred which earns 2 points on all dining, or 3 points on the first Friday of each month.
