The offers usually vary from bank to bank or card to card, so you should check ahead with your bank if the promotion is available and if any terms and conditions apply. Some examples of terms and conditions include:

  • Validity period. Some offers are only valid on specific days of the week, or at a specific time of the day. Some promotions might also exclude public holidays or eve of public holiday.
  • Reservations. Some restaurants impose limited seatings per day for the promotion, so you may be required to book your buffet in advance.
  • Limited menu. Certain offers may not include the full menu, so be sure to check beforehand.
