General Frequent Diner FAQ
You receive one Frequent Diner Club Point for every dollar you spend on your Food & Beverage when dining at any participating Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant. You will automatically receive $10 in Reward Dollars for every 150 points you earn.
There are three Status Levels that you can achieve as a member of the Frequent Diner Club
- Blue Members spend between $1-$999 in a calendar year, and earn 1 Point per Dollar spent
- Silver Members spend at least $1,000 in a calendar year, and earn 1.25 Points per Dollar spent
- Gold Members spend over $2,500 in a calendar year, and earn 1.5 Points per Dollar spent, and have other special privileges such as Priority Reservations at Lettuce Restaurants
Once you have reached Silver or Gold Status, you will keep that status through the current and following calendar years.
You can manage your account, make reservations, store Gift Cards, track points, and redeem Reward Dollars using the LettuceEats app.
The key to earning points is the Check-In page on the LettuceEats app.
Tap “Check In” at the bottom of the app screen, then tap the name of the restaurant where you are dining. The app will then generate a four-digit check in code which you should write at the bottom of your restaurant check in the box that reads “LettuceEats Mobile Code”
Present your Frequent Diner Club Rewards Card when paying the check, and ask your server to apply points to your account.
Frequent Diner Club Points may be earned on orders placed directly through our restaurant websites, Lettuce.com, or our LettuceEats app.
Frequent Diner Club points are not earned on orders placed with Caviar, Delivery Wow, DoorDash, Grubhub, Uber Eats, Postmates, Dwell Social, or any other third-party service.
Online carryout and delivery orders from Maggiano’s Little Italy or Wow Bao are not eligible to earn Frequent Diner Club points. If you would like to earn points for your carryout order at a Maggiano’s Little Italy or Wow Bao location, you must call the restaurant directly to place your order.
To use the Reward Dollars in your account, write the amount you wish to redeem in box labeled ‘Rewards to Redeem $’ (located just underneath the section that reads ‘LettuceEats Mobile Code’).
When using your Rewards Card, just let your server know the amount in Rewards Dollars you wish to apply to your bill.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You agree that any claim, controversy or dispute (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have at law or in equity against Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, Inc. (“Lettuce”), any related entity, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the “Lettuce Entities”) arising out of or relating in any way to Lettuce Frequent Diner Club Points, your participation in any Lettuce Frequent Diner Club Program, these Terms or the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (each, a “Lettuce FDP Dispute”) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in the following paragraph. Please read this paragraph carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how Lettuce FDP Disputes are resolved. You agree that whenever you have a Lettuce FDP Dispute, you will send a written notice to Lettuce (a “Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this paragraph will apply even to disputes that may have arisen before you accepted these Terms. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Lettuce Frequent Diner Club Legal Disputes, 5419 N. Sheridan Road, Suite 116, Chicago, Illinois 60640. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within such 10 business days, the Lettuce FDP Dispute (1) will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”) and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedure effective September 15, 2005 (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this paragraph; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in Chicago, Illinois; (4) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by these Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into; (5) the arbitrator shall apply Illinois law, without regard to its choice of law or conflict of law rules or principles that would result in applying the law of any other jurisdiction, consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable Lettuce Entity’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any Lettuce Entity; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any Lettuce Entity exceed $125 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of AAA) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Lettuce agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Lettuce will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees (but not attorney or other representation fees) in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor the affected Lettuce Entity shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company.
