I have to admit, I’m a Yelper. Wherever I am, whether in my own city or traveling, I check Yelp for the top rated restaurants near me. It helps me narrow down my options, steer clear of any low-rated restaurants, and find awesome foodie spots in the city.
To help out my fellow Yelpers, I always “Check In” to a restaurant, cafe, or bar I visit with a photo of the space to give others an idea of what the place looks like. I recently discovered that for some restaurants, once you “Check In”, you get a coupon. Oftentimes, these check in coupons will be for $10 off your purchase, or a buy one, get one 50% off deal. This helps the restaurant boost their information on Yelp, and helps you get a great deal. Simply take a photo of the restaurant, your food, or the bar while you’re there in the Yelp app.
Yelp has also recently added a Cash Back feature. When searching restaurants, cafes, and bars near you, just filter for Cash Back options. Link your credit card and receive 7-10% Cash Back at any of those restaurants. It is that easy. The Cash Back stockpiles throughout the month, and then a credit is issued to the linked credit card.
Sometimes I check the Yelp app to help me decide where to dine. However, sometimes I just go back to my favorites. I was pleasantly surprised when I got a notice that I received cash back by dining at a restaurant I didn’t even realize had a Cash Back deal. Score!
There’s many reasons to use Yelp. You can check reviews, browse prices and menu items, or just salivate over the delicious foodie photos. However, the best reasons to check out Yelp during your next trip or in your home city include saving money. Use Check In Offers and Yelp Cash Back to be thrifty while dining out.
