A benefit for all Citibank Credit and Visa Debit cardholders, just for being a customer.
The offer is available to use with a wide range of restaurants Australia-wide. To find out more about participating restaurants, visit www.citibankdining.com.au and search by state or by specific occasion such as breakfast, brunch, casual dining or making an impression. Look for the Citibank Dining icon within participating restaurants, and be sure to ask restaurant staff for your bottle of complimentary wine, courtesy of Citibank, when placing your order.
Every time you dine at over 300 partner restaurants across Australia, you get the choice of one bottle of award winning wine, either red or white wine, for free!
Simply choose a partner restaurant and then tell the waiter that you’re a Citibank cardholder when you order and pay for the meal on your card.
When you tell the waiter you’re a Citibank cardholder, the waiter will present you with which wines you can choose from – you’ll have the choice of one red or one white wine and can choose which colour you prefer to match with your meal.
You can either click on the ‘Restaurants’ tab at the top of this page for the full listing, or download the latest version of the Citibank AU Mobile app (for iPhone and Android). The app allows you to search for nearby restaurants, using Location Services, and also to search by cuisine and suburb.
There is a minimum order of one main meal per person at partner restaurants. For partner restaurants that have sharing menus or Yum Cha, a $50 minimum spend is required.
