The title of this thread is Please Share iDine Bonuses. It is a sticky. May I suggest that we confine our posts to this thread to new iDine bonuses, and put our questions and comments in other threads, perhaps new and more appropriately titled?

Thanks.

AA idine Rate your Dine bonus starts again Jan 1, 2008 for VIPs

During our VIP Rate Your Dine Bonus, VIP Dining members can earn 5 AAdvantageŽ bonus miles per dollar on every qualified dine* January 1 through March 31, 2008. That's 10 AAdvantageŽ miles per dollar spent on your entire bill - tax and tip included.

Earning your 5-mile-per-dollar VIP bonus is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Dine at participating restaurants when benefits are being offered January 1 - March 31, 2008.
2. Look for your Benefit Confirmation email after every qualified dine* and click on the link to take a brief survey about your dining experience. Or log in and go to the "My Rewards" page to take the survey online.
3. Complete the survey within 60 days of your qualified dine** - it only takes about 30 seconds to answer a few quick questions - and you'll earn 5 AAdvantageŽ bonus miles per dollar spent on the entire bill!

Just to clarify: The previous AA ratings bonus earned you 5 miles on top of your 10 miles per $ spent for elite members, for a total of 15 miles/$ spent. This ratings "bonus" is simply last year's elite bonus of 5 miles per dollar on top of the normal 5 miles/$ spent, but you are now required to provide a rating to get the second 5 miles/$. Either way, you are getting only 10 miles/$. The following info from their web page makes this clear:

An $87 dinner x 10 miles per dollar = 870 AAdvantageŽ miles. A $23 dollar lunch x 10 miles per dollar = 230 AAdvantageŽ miles. It's one of the richest rewards around!

Eh, sort of... Currently, there is a double mile promotion so VIP members get 10 miles per $... This expires at the end of the year...

The "normal" rate for VIP's is 5 miles per $

The 10-miles-per-dollar for VIP's is not any special promotion. It has been the standard earnings rate for VIP's for years. bob12403 had correctly pointed out that you now have to jump through the extra hoop of rating the restaurant in 2008 to get the historical 10-miles-per-dollar.

Well, what I am reading on their website says otherwise. It says that the VIP rate is 5 miles per dollar, but currently there is a promo:

Special AAdvantage DiningSM elite member bonus extended through 12/31/07.
"5+5=10 AAdvantage miles per dollar spent* (valid thru 12/31/07)"

Once this ends, it's back to 5 miles per dollar for VIPs, which appears to be the standard rate for VIPs with no bonuses. If you choose to rate your dine, from Jan 1 2008 to Mar 31 2008, you will get another 5 miles per dollar bonus. But the BASE RATE for VIPs is 5 miles per dollar, and will continue to be so in 2008, all promotions aside.

Rate your dine bonus for V.I.P.s now available for most airlines

The rate your dine bonus for V.I.P.s is now available for Delta, American, United, Alaska, and Northwest Airlines and U.S. Airways and Priority Club. Priority Club is double points. Continental and Midwest Airlines have not yet posted the bonus.

Links to the bonuses are on my website below in the Other Programs I Like > Dining section, but are easily accessed from the home page of each program.

This was the 3,000 bonus miles for new member sign up. Good from 11/1/07 - 12/31/07. I've been checking, waiting for miles to post, then went back and read the fine print. I didn't realize there was a minimum $25 charge. Has anyone received their miles (dstan?) ? I don't think any of the dines on my wife's new account were $25

Yes, Mrs. dstan received all 3x1000 of her bonus miles. All the charges were over $25, though (I missed that, too), as I made her pay for my dinner, too!

When did you get the 3x1000 bonus miles? Did they post with each dine? I did not receive the 1000 bonus miles for either of my $25+ transactions. I did get a 5 mile/$ bonus for the one restaurant that I did the survey for afterwards anyways.

Looks like it posted at the same time as the dines in all 3 cases, between 9 and 11 days after the dine. I'd send them an email.

Frequent Flyer Miles Dining Bonus

I hope I am posting this and it catches someone's eye.

I am an i-dine member and have my US Airways MasterCard and my One Pass Continental credit cards attached to this program.

My US Airways link has a bonus posting. If you are a VIP member you can double your earned miles for dining by reviewing the restaurants you dine in.

This program is good from Jan. 1-March 31.

With the possible exception of Continental, I-Dine has rolled out this extra step (masquerading as a bonus) for all programs.
