iDine Program -- Successor to Transmedia

Jim Zurer | Oct 27, 2000 01:48 PM

Has anyone else joined the new iDine Prime dining program? I am not sure how it works, but there is no need for a separate card; you link your existing credit cards to their program database. When you use a card at a participating restaurant, a credit of 20% off your total bill (including tax and tip) appears on your credit card statement.

The list of restaurants in the DC area is impressive--Galileo, DC Coast, TenPenh, Osteria Goldoni, Mama Ayesha's, for example. To my surprise, the Bistrot du Coin was not listed as a member, but after I ate there, a 20% credit showed up on my last credit card statement.

They do have a web site....

I would be interested in how quality restaurant in other cities are represented...a quick survey of New York showed Patroon, Bar Odeon, Spartina, and Cinque Terre.

It does cost $50 a year to join, but I have recouped more than that in a month.
