Diners Club Restaurant Savings Program.. what happened?!
Does anyone know what happened to the restaurant savings club from Diner's Club? It was great - it offered a % savings (usually 8-20%) off of your total bill if you went to a restaurant in the program. It was great, it was a pretty vast list of restaurants and they took the $ off on your monthly statement, so no embarassing cupons were needed. Anyway, I just went onto the Diner's Club website and it looks like this program was discontinued as of 7/12. I never received any notification of this... I'm really annoyed, this program was the only reason I put up with their $75 annual fee! Even more annoying is that I hosted a big party on Saturday night at one of the participating restaurants and I chose this particular restaurant to get an extra 20% off the pretty big bill. Since the dinner was after the program closed... I guess I will not get the discount.
Does anyone know what happened here? Why was the program closed? Will it be replaced with something else?
