Featured deals vary from Free Food to Heavily discounted deals that Hooked has negotiated on your behalf and are only redeemable one time only. Once you redeem a featured deal, it will no longer show up in the app.

What are Hooks?

Hooks are what we call our deals, which are short-term and created by local restaurants around you. The Hooks are displayed based upon your location, and available to use at that very moment. The Hooks you see in the app are exclusive to Hooked users, and may not be used if try to redeem without the app.

How do I redeem a Hook?

First, open the Hooked app and check out all of the deals happening around you. Once you’ve decided on which deal you want to redeem, just show up at the business and tap the “USE DEAL NOW” button before you pay. Make sure to show the cashier or server that you redeemed the deal and pay the business directly. For sit-down restaurants, we recommend notifying your servers that you are redeeming a Hooked deal at the beginning of your visit.
