The popular Dining and Entertainment Program is back in Victoria, which means the return of huge discounts on nights out. 

From today onwards, you can get 25% back when you spend $40 or more at restaurants, cinemas, galleries, and many other places.

The helpful cashback scheme was a big favourite following COVID-19, and extending it again feels like a good idea. It’s part of the state government’s wider $200 million campaign to help out small businesses, and for the first time the program is available on any day of the week.

You can save money on restaurants, cafes, pubs, live music shows or art performances, as well as entry into museums, art galleries and amusement parks across the state.

If you fancy taking advantage of the program, simply pay in full for your eligible purchase of choice, and make sure you receive proof of purchase from the business before leaving.

Afterwards, submit this proof of purchase and your full contact information on the Victorian Dining and Entertainment Program claim website here. The 25% rebate will then be credited to your bank account of choice within five business days of your claim being approved.

It should be noted that you can save money on multiple trips so you don’t have to quickly grab your $25 discount on one night out. The program is also available to absolutely anyone with a valid Australia bank account, not just Victorian residents.

The Victorian Dining and Entertainment Program runs from Monday, September 19th until Friday, December 16th, or until the full eligible funds have been claimed. And with the AFL Grand Final coming this Saturday, the 25% discount couldn’t have come at a better time.
