First Table and American Express

In a New Zealand first, American Express is fully integrated across the First Table platform enabling its Card Members to easily identify American Express accepting restaurants, and snap up an earlybird dining deal.


The integration is a significant win for First Table diners and its partner restaurants - American Express cardholders are invariably the most affluent, premium spending diners that restaurateurs love to serve. They earn more, spend more and are more loyal to brands that welcome their card of choice

Restaurants will benefit by attracting more American Express Card Members while cardholders will now find American Express friendly restaurants quicker than ever.
