Loyalty Rewards for Shopping Local
Buy Local programs are more effective when they are supported by rewards for the residents.
Bernal Bucks is an active Clearbon pilot in a San Francisco neighborhood, based on a bank card issued by a local credit union.
“The cards can be used anywhere that debit cards are accepted, but when they’re spent at participating Bernal Heights merchants, consumers get 5% back on their purchases, to use on future shopping trips or donate to a good cause.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Business owners and shoppers are trying something new. Bernal Heights now has its own debit card and it is believed to be the first of its kind in the country.” KGO-ABC7News
