How to Refer


Tell a restaurant owner/manager that they should join GiftAMeal and give them your email address to say you referred them.


The restaurant joins GiftAMeal and tells us your email when signing up to say you referred them.


We email you a $50 gift card to the restaurant and we make a $50 donation to your local food bank in your name.

Refer your favorite restaurant now!
Not sure what to show the owner?


How do I contact an owner/manager?

You can talk to an owner/manager next time you are at their restaurant, send them an email, fill out a contact form on their website, message them through social media, or however you’d like!

What should I tell the restaurant owner?

We recommend saying something like: GiftAMeal is a great way to promote your business while giving back to the community, and it is super easy for restaurants and customers to do. Feel free to share your personal experience using GiftAMeal too!

Can multiple people refer the same restaurant?

Yes, but restaurant owners may only use one referral per location. So don’t wait! Refer your favorite restaurant today!

Why do I need to give them my email address?

So we can reach you to give you your reward!

What if the restaurant owner forgets my email?

We recommend emailing them the referral so that they remember. We can only give the reward if they tell us your email so it is trackable from our end. If the restaurant owner does not give us your contact information, we will not be able to give out the reward.

What if the restaurant doesn’t offer gift cards?

Then you will receive a $50 VISA gift card instead that you can spend anywhere!
