My husband and I look forward to date night.  It is a great chance for us to dress up, enjoy each other’s company, and reconnect.  However, trying to get a table at our favorite restaurant can be stressful, so we found a creative and simple way to avoid reservation anxiety by using an online reservation website called OpenTable.  We even downloaded the app so we could make reservations on the go.

OpenTable provides two different ways to search for availabilities. You can either search by specific restaurant to see what is available, or you can search by day and time to see which restaurants have openings. It is so easy!  Even better, each time we make and honor a reservation we earn points.

For most restaurants, you’ll earn 100 points when you make an online reservation. But there are some restaurants where you can earn 1,000 points with your reservation and you can search specifically for these. Once you’ve collected at least 2,000 points, you can redeem them for OpenTable Dining Cheques in the following amounts:

  • 2,000 points = $20
  • 5,000 points = $50
  • 10,000 points = $100

It only takes two 1,000 point restaurants to get a $20.00 voucher! Because there is a 1,000 point restaurant where I frequently meet my friends for lunch, we have been able to earn points quickly. My husband also makes online reservations on OpenTable when we travel, since it helps us see what is available in the area.
