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:

Thanks for the posting! I’m half of Supportland with my husband, Michael. It looks like our launch is out a tiny ways as we’re still getting businesses through registration (about 300 pre-registered!). Thanks for your support and shopping local!
Thanks reaching and letting us that your launch is still pending. Very exciting about the 300 pre-registered! I was also curious about which businesses you have signed up, because off course I’d love to see all my local favorites on board. 🙂
Let me know when your launch happens and I’ll do a follow-up post.
