Restaurant booking platform Quandoo is one of the few remaining in the Australian market that allows diners to earn points. Previously, Quandoo partnered with Qantas Frequent Flyer, offering members Qantas Points on restaurant bookings. However, this partnership ended in March 2023.

Frequent diners can instead collect Quandoo Loyalty Points, which are redeemable for cashback. While this points currency may not be as lucrative, it’s still an easy means of getting rewarded when dining out.

Here’s everything you need to know about Quandoo’s rewards program.

What are the benefits of Quandoo’s loyalty program?

The key benefit of Quandoo Loyalty Points is earning points from restaurant reservations. We dive into how to do this below, but the idea is simple: make a booking and earn a fixed amount of points.

While some other restaurant rewards programs allow you to redeem points for money off your next meal or gift cards, Quandoo rewards you with cashback paid directly into your bank account.

What are Quandoo Loyalty Points and how do I earn them?

Quandoo Loyalty Points is the currency of the platform’s rewards program. There are three main ways to earn points:

  1. Reserving a table via the Quandoo app = 200 points
  2. Reserving a table via the Quandoo website = 150 points
  3. Writing a restaurant review = 50 points

New members will also pocket 400 points when creating a Quandoo account.

The program’s points-earning structure is simple – and, for new account holders, you could earn your first cashback redemption quite quickly. With the 400-points sign-up offer, you’d just need to make three table reservations using the Quandoo app to achieve the minimum redemption.

Once you complete your reservation, your loyalty points can take up to 72 hours to appear in your account. After writing a restaurant review, your points will land in your account within 48 hours of the review being published, after it’s been approved by the Quandoo team.

Like all restaurant rewards programs, you need to actually turn up for your reservation in order to earn points – you can’t simply make a bunch of dummy bookings! The same rule applies when cancelling a reservation.

Any Quandoo Loyalty Points earned will expire after 180 days if you don’t make any new reservations via the website or app.

How do I redeem Quandoo Loyalty Points?

Once you’ve accumulated at least 1,000 Quandoo Loyalty Points, you can redeem them for a fixed cashback amount, as follows.

  • 1,000 points = $15 cashback
  • 5,000 points = $75 cashback
  • 10,000 points = $150 cashback

To redeem your Quandoo Loyalty Points, simply follow the steps below.

  1. Log into your account and complete the redemption form.
  2. Choose your cashback amount.
  3. Fill in the details of the bank account you’d like the cashback to be deposited to.
  4. Sit tight – your cashback will land in your account within 14 working days.

Maximising your rewards

Quandoo occasionally offers promo codes that can help you save on your booking or earn more points.

But if there are no current Quandoo promo codes, you can still maximise your rewards by using a credit card that earns frequent flyer points when you dine out.

If you’re chasing the luxury of Emirates’ immaculate First Class, you can top up your Qantas Points balance with the Qantas Premier Platinum credit card. You’ll earn one Qantas Point per dollar – and the points can certainly add up quickly from everyday expenses, like dinner and drinks. Or, the American Express Velocity Platinum will earn you 1.25 Velocity Points per $1 spent – handy if you’re hoping to venture to Jordan for less.

So if you find yourself at a restaurant that doesn’t do split billing – well, you know what to do.

How do I join Quandoo’s rewards program?

Quandoo Loyalty Points is free to join. To sign up, simply head to the Quandoo website. You can join using your Google, Apple or Facebook account, or with a valid email address.

Summing up

Quandoo Loyalty Points is a no-frills program that rewards members on dining reservations. Redemptions are in the form of a simple cashback to your nominated bank account. And with the option to make free reservations via the app or website, it’s a program worth signing up for if you dine out frequently.
