Miami-based, dining card specialist, Transmedia Network, says this morning its two year old makeover plan is now complete. This week, Transmedia’s national dining programs, recently rebranded under the name ‘iDine’, have all been united under the registered card format where, instead of using a separate charge card, consumers simply use their existing credit card to access benefits. Transmedia also this week launched the test of ‘iDine Choice’, which enables restaurateurs to create special incentives and promotions through the ‘iDine’ website on specific days of the week and times of the day. Consumers will have their choice of savings benefits in points or cash and may convert the points into either complimentary dining or frequent flyer miles. The website also allows for on-line reservations, national restaurant listings and access to reviews and maps. During the past two year the company acquired its largest competitor, ‘Dining a la Card’, and in the process acquired the registered card technology. On June 30, Transmedia completed the acquisition of its last remaining and most successful franchise, Potomac Dining in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, for approximately $5 million. Transmedia Network Inc., by selectively issuing and marketing the ‘Transmedia Card’ and the ‘Dining A La Card’ registered card, presently offers its over 3.0 million members a variety of savings programs at more than 7,000 restaurants throughout the United States.
