Being a Dining Rewards merchant is rewarding

RACQ is Queensland’s largest club with over 1,600,000 members with over 50% of Queensland homes having an RACQ member. Here is your opportunity to benefit from the strength of our membership base. We have a track record of helping our key suppliers improve their businesses. 

Not just another loyalty program... 

Our point of difference is unlike other marketing initiatives where payment is upfront without certainty of sale, the costs of the ‘dining reward’ are only applicable once the customer has transacted. Plus you get free detailed reporting so you can make better marketing decisions.

How it works

The Dining Rewards program is a simple, automated process with no additional hardware, software or staff training required. You have the flexibility to adjust discounts seasonally or on quiet trading days.

Benefits to RACQ members

RACQ’s Dining Rewards program allows members with Visa cards to register and earn ‘cash-back’ at selected partner restaurants. By registering as a Dining Rewards member and dining at selected partner restaurants, members will receive 10% credited to them on their upcoming Visa statement.

Benefits to Merchant partners

  1. RACQ will market the program and restaurants to its members.
  2. Dining Rewards members visit your restaurant or cafe and pay for their meal at the normal price with no vouchers or discount cards. The RACQ member does nothing and you do nothing.
  3. Administration costs plus customer discount is deducted via direct debit.
  4. You have a loyal repeat customer.
