And a lot of them now only give points for online orders, which is just a link to another website called Chownow.com that you order from. So no dining in or ordering direct. At least that's the case in my area.

I added a Citi card to AAdvantage Dining and then did an eligible dine. The next day I saw a Citi Merchant Offer for the same restaurant and added it. That caused my card to be unlinked from AA Dining, so I immediately relinked it.

Will that dine still earn miles?

Edited: Answer is yes. The unlink/relink the next day didn't interfere with this.

That hasn't been my experience:

AAdvantage Dining

Maybe I didnít do the search correctly, but I didnít see any threads for questions around AAdvantage Dining.

If there is Iím sure the mods will move this message to that thread.

In light of the new Loyalty Points scheme, decided to try AAdvantage Dining and noticed they had an offer to get 1000 bonus points if you had two restaurant visits within the first 30 days. However not seeing the bonus points, even though it has been 6 days since the second visit. Does it take longer? Anyone else have issues?

Yes, the special offers do take a few extra days. If you don't see them in your AADining account in a few days, I'd reach out to them by email. They have, in my experience, quite responsive customer service.

FYI you might need to complete a review to get the bonus. I did mine more than 10 days ago though and still waiting

For people who are new to these dining rewards, you get 3 miles per dollar until you have 11 "dines" (transactions) in a calendar year, and then starting with your 12th, you are "VIP" and you get 5.

For the drinkers out there, a nice trick to fast-track to VIP is to sit at the bar and not run a tab. Close out after every drink; every charge is a separate "dine".

Yeah, I see that mentioned sometimes as a requirements. But the ďvisitsĒ were via ChowNow - how do you complete a review as I didnít see anything on the website.

I haven't used ChowNow. If you can write a review for your dining, there will be a link to it in the Status column of this page.

For me, that column just shows a non hyperlinked paid date. Iíve emailed them so will see what they come back with. Thanks.

Will work really well until your credit card is shut down for multiple transactions at the same merchant in a short period of time.

That's never happened to me. Buying drinks at a bar one at a time is not uncommon at all (maybe less so at a restaurant bar, but there are lots of places, like nightclubs, where you can't run a tab and have to pay per drink).

Worst case, Citi sends you a text asking if it's really you, you text back "1" for yes, and you keep drinking.
