Not to be confused with Discover card’s Diner’s Club International, International Diner’s Club (IDC) is local and is not a credit card. A co-worker asked me if I had used IDC and I had never even heard of it! He loves it for his family of 5 and has used it for years to rack up savings while eating out and I am wasting no time in signing up!
The basic concept is that you pay a $40 membership fee, get mailed a card or cards that you have to take with you when you dine and get two for one dining (of equal or lesser value of course). All restaurants are valid for dinner, most for lunch and some for breakfast.
With close to 50 restaurants participating in Roanoke, Salem, Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Radford and Moneta and multiple visits available per restaurant, $40 seems like a nominal fee for half off dining. The return policy is 15 days for a full refund (could be a little longer in my opinion, but not too shabby). The big disclaimer is that the list can change as restaurants decide to participate or go out of business, so call to check if one restaurant sis a deal breaker for you before signing up. Check back here tomorrow for a full list of restaurants by city.
Contact number is 800.849.4432 and find IDC online at http://www.idc241dining.com/index.htm
