I have always been an advocate for Chope since it allows you to not only make reservations on-the-go but also rack up plenty of Chope-Dollars which you can then use for dining vouchers or even KrisFlyer miles. There are no fees involved in using Chope so there is really zero reason for you not to - especially the last thing you want to experience is being turned away at a restaurant that you have already travelled down for.
A couple of days ago, a number of users have had their Chope-Dollars balance adjusted and Chope sent out an email a couple of days later to notify everyone about the changes (even though who were not affected like me). In that very same email, they mentioned that a brand new Loyalty Programme will be launching soon:
The good news is that we will soon be launching a new Loyalty Programme which will include a wide range of new perks including a faster way to earn Chope-Dollars.
A couple of years ago, Chope launched the ChopeVIP programme for their top-tier members and I was invited to join it (not because of this website but because I actually use it so much that I am actually one of their top members in reality) - that seriously accelerated the rate in which I accrued Chope-Dollars and it has helped pay for (or subsidise) plenty of meals that I have taken throughout the years. I am personally quite interested to see what Chope is launching and since they were reconciling Chope-Dollars for all members, I dare say that the qualification of 'elite tier' in the new programme would either require a certain Chope-Dollar balance or the fulfillment of a fixed number of reservations each year.
