Launches Preferred Dining+Bar Card


Unlike punch cards and one time use restaurant coupons, the card can be used every day through June 30, 2012 to save 15 percent on meals or 50 percent on one alcoholic beverage. Sixteen of Bend’s best restaurants are participating along with local, Flash Savings merchants who are offering incredible daily discounts by simply flashing the card.

The real value of The Preferred Dining+Bar Card is that there is no minimum spend. Simply present your card with your bill and your savings will be deducted. You can use your card multiple times per day for meals, and once per day, per restaurant for an alcoholic beverage.

There is no charge to the restaurants to participate. “The goal is to drive new business to the participating local restaurants, help customers save money every time they go out to eat and build the brand.” said Lara Wettig, Director of Sales & Marketing. “We’ve essentially created a “frequent diner” program and the restaurants responded enthusiastically,” she continued.

With a cost of just $25, the Preferred Dining+Bar Card easily pays for itself while dining at some the best restaurants in Central Oregon. Participating restaurants include: 5 Fusion & Sushi Bar, Alpenglow, Amalia’s, Awbrey Glen, boken, GoodLife Brewing, Kanpai, Kayo’s, La Rosa, Level 2, Pisano’s Pizza, Pho Viet & Café, Pine Tavern, Scanlon’s, Tart, Tetherow Grill.

The following illustrates what a cardholder can save in just one month:

Lunch for two, three times ($20 x 3, 15% savings) = $9 savings
Dinner for four, three times ($60 x 3, 15% savings) = $27 savings
Alcoholic drinks, three times ($24, 50% savings) = $12 savings
Dry cleaning at Cathy’s Cleaners (spend $30, save $10) = $10 savings

Total savings: $58 in just one month!

The cards are perfect for people who dine out at Bend area restaurants on a regular basis or for those who would like to go out more often. For employers, the cards are a perfect way to thank employees and save on entertaining out of town clients or friends who travel to Bend.

The card will be sold locally at Visit Bend, Central Oregon Visitors Association, Bend Chamber, Cuppa Yo, Newport Market and other select locations. They can also be ordered online at and shipped for free.

Started last year, serves up the real-time daily specials from participating local restaurants. Answering the question of “where do we go to eat?” For the restaurateur, provides an affordable and time-saving solution to integrated social media marketing.
