Here’s the story of how I went to dinner the other night and got money back on my meal, thanks to the app Servy.
As most of you know, when I find something I like, I cannot shut up about it. When I found a new dinner delivery service, I told my entire office. Now I’m telling you about my latest obsession, Servy.
Download Servy and you’ll see a variety of participating restaurants in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and DC that will reimburse you for dining with them.
Find a restaurant you want to try, and check in to the restaurant when you arrive and you’ll receive a few instructions. For example, the instructions for the restaurant I tried, The Malt House, were to spend $20 in order to be eligible for a reimbursement.
Following dinner, I had a few hours to submit my itemized receipt. After submitting my receipt, I had to complete a survey on my experience in 48 hours. It was much simpler than any review I’ve ever written. I answered 5 or so questions about service. Then I gave a 1 to 5 star rating on service, food and beverage and atmosphere, with a short description. It took me maybe 3 minutes to put together a thoughtful response.
The next day, my evaluation was accepted and I received $12, with a payout when I hit $20. What a steal. Given I used to review any place I tried on Yelp, here I was getting paid for it.
After playing around with the app, I learned there are also opportunities to review delivery options in addition to dining in. I noticed a ton of restaurants I’ve already eaten at by my office, including Dig Inn and Hale & Hearty.
In order to use Servy you need to fill out an application through the app. Simply answer a few questions on why you are a great reviewer.

Disclosure: I will admit there is a financial incentive for me to refer you all. I will get $5 after your first review. Keep in mind you’ll be able to share this app with all your friends too and make extra cash!
