Restaurant booking platform TheFork has announced its new rewards program, allowing users to accrue points every time they eat out. 

Under the loyalty plan, ‘Yums’, users are rewarded with 50 points or ‘Yums’ when they book through TheFork website, and 150 ‘Yums’ for every booking through the app. 

TheFork was previously known as Dimmi.

Users who accrue 1,000 points score $20 to spend at a TheFork restaurant, while those who save 2,000 points score $50. 

That means that once users book seven outings through the app, they’ll score $20, or 13 bookings to score the $50 bonus. 

Those who sign up also score a $20 bonus. 

The loyalty plan is part of TheFork’s new partnership with 16 other countries’ platforms, meaning diners can book through the app while travelling internationally.

“The launch of our new look app and website is our latest update in an effort to inspire Australian diners to continue to support the restaurant industry. We want people getting out of the house and experiencing the diversity of the wonderful restaurants we have in this country, as well as the global dining scene,” said country manager Gary Burrows.

Dimmi founder Stevan Premutico, who has since left the company, is also busy innovating with app me&u. 

The app has a goal of cutting out the need to flag staff to order, to pay and then to split bills by instead ordering and paying through the app.
