Wow great to meet a fellow Mainer on here! Another option is portland pie but be careful - they only pay out on 2-3 days of the week! Eek! Let me know if you wanna do a meetup sometime. I used to run a series of PWM Meetups.

For Reference, the new AA Dining OpenTable reservation bonus of 150 miles for making and showing up to a reservation does NOT get loyalty points, just 150 bonus award miles. Had an April 17 dine that posted already.

Thanks for letting us know. Maybe I'd have tried it for the LPs. 150 miles is no where near enough to entice me to deal with a third party booking site.

In general, my dining posting times seem much improved over the last few months. I usually have an immediate confirmation email when my card is swiped, and the points have all posted 2-3 days later without issue or intervention. Big improvement from last year.

How does it work? You make an OpenTable reservation at a AAD restaurant, show up, dine, and the 150 miles automagically post? No need to register or somehow link your OpenTable account to your AA or AAD accounts?

You make the OpenTable reservation while on the AA dine website or app- it shows up with some restaurants. Then go to restaurant, pay with a credit card that is registered on AA dine, and yep Automagically posted.

Place was a typical Chicago Dime-A-Dozen pizzeria, went for lunch, made the OT reservation 15 minutes before we went, in the middle of the day.

Sadly, this OpenTable 'bonus benefit' is in no way any sort of substitution for the hundreds of restaurants, within 50 miles of my home, lost with ChowNow. *criesinhisredpepperflakes*

I do not see any link to OpenTable/reservations on the site. Can you be a little more specific as to how to find it? Thanks.

Log into your dining account. Click on the specific restaurant so that it opens as a full page. If it is part of the Open Table scheme, then the OT reservation link will pop up. You can book from there and you will then receive a confirmation email directly from OpenTable. Not all restaurants participate in the OT scheme. In San Francisco, it seems to be many, but definitely not all.

Missing Rewards Frustration

I would estimate about 70% of the time, my miles are posted automatically as soon as my credit card is processed at the restaurant, and I get an email confirmation. But the other 30%, the miles don't post. Not the same day, not two days later, not five days later. Never! I have to scan my receipt and beg AADining for miles. Sometimes they say it's too soon, other times, it takes multiple requests and mucho patience. If the system is automated, it's not clear why if doesn't work about 30% of the time. Dining Rewards doesn't seem to be investing in correcting this long-standing issue, even if it means losing customers!
