We received an email from Bian Dang telling us they are doing a FREE lunch promotion today with LevelUp.  Both the truck and store will be giving out free lunches of up to $10 in value.  All you have to do is to sign up for a free account with LevelUp.

Click through for more details on the promotion and LevelUp, which sounds like a company with an interesting concept.  LevelUp did a free lunch promotion last week at the Schnitzel & Things store, and Oleg told me it was a great success.

The Bian Dang truck is scheduled to be on Vanderbilt Ave & 46th St, but check their twitter here to make sure.  The truck is expected to be open until 4pm (or until they run out of food).  The store is at Food Gallery 32 at11 West 32nd St (bet 5th & 6th Ave).

How LevelUp works is you register to get your own personal QR code. Use it to pay (and save) at hundreds of local businesses in town. Instant digital receipts show what you spent and how much you saved.

Each day they feature a new merchant for you to try out. You’ll get $5, $10, $20 in credit to spend on whatever you want there. To use it, just pay with LevelUp!  Didn’t use it all?  Use the rest next time.  Spent extra? Pay the rest with LevelUp.

The first time you pay with LevelUp at any merchant, you’ll immediately get credit applied to your purchase.  As you go back, you’ll unlock more credit to use on whatever you want at that merchant. Sounds like a good deal to us!
