Seated, the app that rewards you for dining out, has partnered with Lyft, making it a little easier to choose dining out over dining in. This is the first ride-hailing/restaurant collaboration where participants are not only encouraged to eat out, but also are rewarded for doing so. Seated will award its users Lyft credits for simply making reservations and eating out at qualifying restaurants. Awards will range between $10 and $50 in Lyft credits, depending on the size of the party and dining time.

The partnership is in response to a report put out by Morgan Stanley that found that 43% of people who order food for delivery see it as a replacement to dining at restaurants. The problem with this is that third-party platforms could be taking as much as 20% to 40% of the delivery revenue.

Seated hopes that the partnership will encourage more diners to eat out and create more loyalty for customers at restaurants.

“This partnership simplifies the dining out experience by removing its biggest roadblock – just getting there,” Seated Co-Founder Brice Gumpel said, according to Engadget. “People can now use their Lyft credits to cover any future rides, including those to and from the new restaurants they try on Seated.”

Seated and Lyft will be giving away $1 million in rewards in cities where Seated is available: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

New Seated customers can also get $10 in Lyft credits by making their first reservation and using the promo code LYFTxSEATED. Seated is available for download on iOS and Android phones.
