What does my Companion get?

Everything you do, from their own stack of gift cards to the t-shirt. They'll even get their own member portal login.

What's the commitment?

It's a full 12 month commitment, BUT:
- you can transfer your membership at any time to someone else to takes over payments
- if we have a waitlist, we will find someone to take over your account for you (which basically means you can cancel) :)

How do the gift cards work?

After you become a member, you'll get invited to download the Tucson Foodie app where you can access all the gift cards. When you're at a restaurant, simply open the app on your phone, show your server the gift card and press the Redeem button (or let them press it for you) and boom!Watch a video of the in-app redemption process.

Do I get the gift cards every year I'm a member?

Yep! Your gift cards are re-activated for use again every year.
