seems like a desperate attempt to bring some customers in Blue. I have no idea what kind of value represents 30 bluebiz credits. Can someone give us a rough idea.

UK members, 30 credits = 30 GBP

​​​​​I imagine for NL members 30 credits = 30 EUR

On the other hand a scheme like this can also be a positive thing against food waste. The menu has plenty of dishes that feature ingredients with a very limited shelve life. I'm sure that they will have to toss plenty of produce daily, as they need to keep fresh stock for any order at any time.

Having a certain number of pax come in to whom the chef can basically serve whatever is left over has advantages for both: Lower price for the customer, and if executed properly, almost zero costs for the restaurant.

And actually those menu's normally are €30 so they throw in an appetizer and 2 drinks - and still pay €30 but you don't get to choose what they serve you....

Not bad for the restaurant I think

They way I read it, it's 30 blue-biz credits for 2 persons, but of course I could be wrong.

I don't think they're being that generous!

The headline says "Surprise yourself or your colleague", and the next line then refers to "You and your colleagues" - so the only logical explanation is that it is 30 per person!

30 BC=30€
but, with the last earning scheme, you have to spend 1000€ to get 30BC (3%)

35 blue credits is the correct amount for you.

The 30 above was for a UK member, so it’s 30GBP.

Similarly, my offer was 70 blue credits (and my currency is worth about half a euro).

"You'll need at least 45 minutes to consume the menu".

If it takes that long, it must be a laminated menu.

Are you saying you'll consume a paper version in less time?
