If you’re going to be in New York by the end of 2011, and have the British Airways Visa, don’t forget about a special promotion: $50 in dining credit each for up to two dinners — $100 in total credit value — at any Michelin-starred restaurant in New York City.
There’s no catch, you just need to spend at least $50 at each dinner and pay for the meal with your British Airways Visa. Your statement will then be credited $50. That’s for up to two dinners for $100 total. No embarassing coupons or special nights — it’s all done quietly on the back end — the restaurant has no idea you’re getting a deal.
If you’d like, you can make your reservation directly with the British Airways Visa’s dining consultants. They may have offers for special experiences in addition to the statement credit. Or, just book the reservation like you normally would through the restaurant or OpenTable.
