Rewards Network – Why Work With Us?

For over 30 years, Rewards Network has helped restaurants increase their revenue, traffic, and customer engagement through our innovative financial and marketing services and premier dining rewards programs.

With our premier Merchant Cash Advance programs, Rewards Network provides cash to restaurants, bars, and clubs to help jumpstart necessary improvements and enhance their bottom line.

Our Marketing Services program advertises through millions of targeted emails, on-the-go access to restaurants via mobile apps, and a strong social media presence. Partner restaurants also receive actionable data — including what is driving both new and repeat business — and have immediate access to their guests’ reviews, allowing for effective, consistent customer engagement.

Rewards Network offers dining programs in partnership with major airline frequent flyer programs, several of the nation’s largest bank card issuers, numerous key players in the loyalty marketing industry, and dozens of national corporations.

Our over 6 million members include frequent flyers, corporate cardholders, and a pool of highly motivated diners who spend hundreds of millions of dollars annually at participating restaurants. Simply put, Rewards Network members dine more, spend more, and visit program restaurants more often than non-members.
