Get FREE FOOD Credit at Washington DC Restaurants

Follow these steps to get the LevelUp app setup and load free food credits.

Step 1. On your phone or computer navigate to

On this page there are different restaurants where you can click through and sign up for your free credit. So, go ahead and click through on each of the links. This pulls up a LevelUp landing page where you enter your email address. 

Step 2. Click through and create a LevelUp account

It is extremely important at this point that you use whatever email address you just put for signing up for all those bonuses as your account email. After you have created your account, it is time to link your credit card. So, if you have a card that gets bonus points for dining, it will work for this.

Step 3. Download the apps for each individual restaurant to your phone

When you open each app, you are going to sign in NOT signup, since you’ve already created your LevelUp account. Use the same login information. If you’re traveling with a family or a group do this for every phone in the group. There is no reason why you couldn’t do this on everyone’s phone to take maximum advantage of this trip hack.
