Like Rapid Rewards itself, Rapid Rewards Dining will work a little differently than the other airline dining programs. You will receive .25 Rapid Rewards credits for your first $25 dollars spent at participating restaurants and .25 credits for each $100 dollars thereafter. There is currently no “VIP” level allowing you to earn additional credits. You are either “active” or “inactive.”
I’ll probably continue to concentrate my dining spend in American’s program for now, but this is a nice new option for earning extra Rapid Rewards credits for doing something we all do, dine out.
