NSW’S $100 Dine and Discover Voucher Scheme Has Been Extended
It’s just been announced that the NSW Dine and Discover Vouchers scheme will be extended until the end of July 2021.
This means families can now use the $100 vouchers during the winter school holidays starting on June 28.
The scheme, which rolled out in March last year, aimed to drive traffic into local businesses to help with an economic bounce back after the pandemic.
But it was revealed that only 44% of the Dine and Discover vouchers had in fact been used.
Can You Still Apply For $100 NSW Dine And Discover Vouchers?
In short, yes you can. Head to the Service NSW app homepage and follow the prompts after clicking on the Dine and Discover icon (if you can’t see this make sure you’ve got the most up-to-date version of the app).
You’ll need to provide two forms of proof of identity - typically this will be your driver's licence or passport, and a Medicare card. Once you’ve completed the proof of identity section make sure your contact details are all up to date and submit the application. You’ll receive an email notifying you of the submission.
How do the Dine and Discover Vouchers Work?
Once approved, you’ll find the four Dine and Discover Vouchers located in your Service NSW app and a copy will be sent to your email. Now, there are a few rules when it comes to using your $100 vouchers.
The 2 x $25 Dine NSW vouchers are to be used at dining venues including restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, wineries and bars.
The 2 x $25 Discover NSW vouchers are to be used at entertainment venues including cinemas, art galleries, music venues and cultural institutions. You’ll be able to use the vouchers 7 days a week (including public holidays) at any participating businesses until June 31, 2021.
When it’s time to pay for your meal or tickets, simply take out your Service NSW app, click on the voucher section and pass your phone to the patron to scan. Alternatively, you can use the vouchers sent to your email.
You’ll only be able to use one of your vouchers at a time at the dining or entertainment venue. If your total bill is over $25 you’ll have to foot the rest with your own funds and alternatively if your bill totals less than the $25 voucher there’s no cashback - so spend wisely!
