GoodSearch was established in 2005 followed by GoodShop in 2007 and GoodDining in 2011. GoodDining offers another innovative way to earn money for N.A.M.E.D. without making a personal donation. With GoodDining you can earn up to 6% on your total bill (- food, drinks, tax, and tip included) at participating restaurants.
Is it safe and secure for you to give your credit card information? Yes. GoodDining receives your credit or debit card in a secure format and your card information is stored in a secure, encrypted environment that meets payment card security standards.
When you pay with your registered credit or debit card at participating restaurants, the system automatically recognizes your choice to have a percentage of your payment deducted from your bill (- a percentag agreed upon by dining establishments in this program) to be donated to the charity of your choice. No need to be bothered with telling or presenting your waiter/waitress or cashier with a membership card, discount card, or mentioning the program. It is that simple and discreet!
What determines the percentage you earn for N.A.M.E.D.? You earn 2.5% of the total amount you pay on your registered credit or debit card when your total payments at particpating GoodDining establishments during a membership year is less than $750 OR 5% if your total GoodDining purchases are $750 or more. An additional 1% can be earned for N.A.M.E.D. by completing a GoodDining Review that will be e-mailed to you (or a link to where it can be completed) in approximately 3-5 days after your dining transaction.
One final note, you are not only able to search for participating restaurants in your area or where you are visiting, but you can also access restaurant addresses and other information about the restaurants, such as ratings and pricing.
