Whether you are an avid foodie or a casual shopper, sampling a new restaurant is always a fun way to add some variety to holiday or year-end festivities. Not many people get to enjoy this indulgence though, the most frequently-cited reason being cost. Let’s face it: a lot of times, the restaurants with the best reviews or the most interesting dishes don’t come cheap.
If you have your own credit card, though, the good news is that you can use it to get highly exclusive discounts whenever you dine out. The next time you treat your family or friends to a lovely Christmas or New Year dinner, check and see which establishments are covered by your card’s benefits and privileges.
