Buy Local Spend Local is a regional program that connects Credit Union members to locally-owned businesses in the community, encouraging and rewarding members to not only BUY LOCAL, but to also SPEND LOCAL by using their Credit Union’s debit or credit card for purchases.

This unique program benefits local business owners, local Credit Unions and Credit Union members.

How Does it Work

Participating local businesses are listed by category, for free, on a customized, turnkey site. The credit union commits to reimbursing select, random transactions when members use their debit or credit card to patronize participating stores, restaurants, service providers, and other businesses.*
