Unmissable offers will be available to all citizens living in the Scottish capital from 1st December with the exciting launch of the ‘Resident Rewards’ scheme from Forever Edinburgh, the city’s main destination promotional channels.
‘Resident Rewards’ gets off to a festive start by giving people across Edinburgh the chance to dine out for less at one of the capital’s top restaurants, Superico on Hanover Street, throughout December. This is just the start of an amazing series of monthly offers, ranging from rewards for historic walking tours of the iconic Old Town to visiting the world’s largest Scotch whisky collection.
Forever Edinburgh is the official destination guide owned and run by City of Edinburgh Council. It has created ‘Resident Rewards’ as part of a wider winter campaign targeting domestic visitors funded by VisitScotland’s Destination and the sector marketing fund to help people living in EH postcodes make the most of the fantastic cultural, leisure and hospitality offerings across the city.
The new initiative has devised great monthly offers from local businesses, tailored for city residents to help them rediscover Edinburgh’s magic by exploring parts of their city, one of the world’s top destination, that they might never have seen before.
Details of Forever Edinburgh ‘Resident Rewards’ can be found on Edinburgh.org/residentrewards. Everyone can follow the social media hashtags #ForeverEdinburgh and #EHRewards to keep in touch. And residents can share their fun experiences of taking part in the scheme by posting photos and tagging where they have visited to show others what they can enjoy.
To get the scheme off the ground, Forever Edinburgh has teamed up with New Town restaurant Superico on 83 Hanover Street to offer brilliant opportunities to save money on delicious dining out this December. And offers lined up for 2022 include rewards to explore the city’s streets with Mercat Tours, Edinburgh’s award-winning story tellers, and a visit to the world-renowned Scotch Whisky Experience on Castlehill. More exclusive offers will be unveiled in the new year.
The offers in December at Superico are perfect for a festive night out with friends and family or colleagues, or a delicious South American-inspired lunch while exploring Edinburgh’s Christmas. They include £30 off the food bill when at least six people choose from Superico’s ‘Festive Fiesta’ lunch and dinner sharing menu, discounts on its a la carte menu, or a free glass of prosecco wine.
“We are delighted to launch Forever Edinburgh’s ‘Resident Rewards’ scheme to let all our citizens experience more of the city for less.
