I am super excited about the debut of the new
local rewards card, and hope the Mercury was correct in announcing the
official launch today
. Since I already try to shop mostly local, I’m really looking forward to trying it out.
The basic gist is that you earn reward points by shopping local, and local shops will offer ways to “spend” the points you earned by shopping locally with freebies! Sounds ingenious to me.
Even if you’re not from p-town, you should be excited, because they have plans to support buying local across the nation. Who knows maybe the idea will globalize local, wouldn’t that be ironic?!
Here’s a quick video that explains how the program will help you save money while supporting local businesses:
