    Well, I've made reservations at one of my favorite DC restaurants thru savored.com, which promises 30% off my bill for making the reservation through them.

    I can only imagine that my reservation is electonically coded somehow to capture this.

    Reservations thru savored.com do not permit the use of further promotions, e.g. coupons, which I understand. But what happens if I pay by my AA-linked CC? or with a gift card previously purchased at the restaurant? Does something get flagged that these contstitute the use of "promotions".?

    I'd appreciate reports from the experienced.

    I would think you should get the iDine miles also if the CC you used was registered with a particular iDine program.

    I use opentable.com to book my reservations and use an iDine registered CC, I always get the miles & my open table points.

    As I discuss above, I used an RN-affiliated (aadvantage miles earning) credit card to pay for a meal which I had reserved on Savored.com, paying $10 for a 30% discount.
    At the end of the meal, the server brought me 2 bills - one "pre" 30% discount, which I was not expected to pay (but I suppose they wanted me to know the pre-discount amount for gratuity purposes), the other with the discount.
    I had been concerned that my credit card would either be rejected for being RN-affiliated or that the miles would not accrue.
    (1) the card was accepted without incident
    (2) miles have posted to my account.
    Hooray!
