Having fun isn’t expensive — as long as you know Deal Dada

The prospect of grabbing a drink with a buddy to blow some steam, or a romantic weekend date with your bae shouldn’t make you go ‘chup bae’! After being stuck at home for close to two years with nothing but bland home-cooked meals or cheap plastic-wrapped takeaways for company, your palette has PTSD — give it the break it deserves.

Deal Dada’s Tip: Download the Dineout app — its a god’s gift if you eat out at a restaurant even once a year. If you are in the mood for some good ole socialising, get yourself a Dineout Passport membership. Unlike Amazon Prime Video & Netflix, this is one membership you don’t want to share or cut corners on. An annual city pack for Delhi NCR, Bengaluru & Mumbai is Rs. 1599, and for cities like Hyderabad & Kolkata is Rs. 1039 only (limited period offer)!

Also, if you have an HDFC Diner’s Credit Card — register it on Dineout NOW. If you don’t, fret not, RBI has now allowed HDFC Bank to issue new credit cards, so run to your local HDFC Bank Branch and get an HDFC Credit Card. With this beauty, you’ll get an additional 10–15% off at Dineout-pay enabled restaurants across India.

Remember, noobs land offers, pros combine offers, legends compound offers, i.e. combine 3–4 offers to land a jackpot. For instance, in each of our examples we’ll combine Dineout Passport with Dineout Pay’s SuperSaver & HDFC Bank’s offer to squeeze every bit of savings.
