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?

  1. This article has nothing to do with the restaurant program, but it does go into detail on how Diner's Club is being radically changed.
