cards.largeYou’ve been waiting for the Local Rewards cards to appear, and they’re finally here! About fifty free cards are waiting for you to claim them at local businesses across our city! Participation in the Local Rewards Scavenger Hunt is simple!

  • Go to to see where the free cards are located.
  • Go to the checkout counter and ask for one of the free cards.
  • First Come, first served! There are only 5 free cards at each location, so you may have to visit more than one location to find a free card.
  • Don’t want to hunt around? Prefer to purchase your card? No problem! Each location also has extra cards they are selling for the limited time, reduced price of $15. There are a limited number of free cards available, so get them quickly!
  • We request that only one free card be claimed per person. Honor system. (And maybe big brother…? Nah.)
  • We’ll post hints about where you might still find free cards on Twitter and Facebook throughout the week.

Introducing Local Rewards!

Coming soon! We're gearing up to launch the Local Rewards program here in Renton!

Coming soon!

We’re gearing up to launch the Local Rewards program here in Renton. We’ll be rolling out this program with a contest and giving away FREE Local Rewards cards at participating members’ businesses.

What Is Local Rewards?

Local Rewards is a way for local businesses to say “thanks for choosing local!” by offering discounts, freebies, and extras to cardholders on everything from your daily coffee to a new roof for your house. These rewards can save you a few cents on a car wash or a few hundred dollars on car repairs. And, the best news is – the cards are valid for one full year!

New deals will be added all the time. More businesses are joining our community of small businesses every week. Let your favorite local business know about Local Rewards. Maybe they’ll offer a reward too!

Local Rewards is a YOUR OPPORTUNITY, as citizens of Renton, to “put your money where your house is” and participate in the RelyLocal campaign. As we launch the Local Rewards program, we’ll be selling the cards at a reduced rate of only $15.00. (That is less than $0.04 per day for access to major savings while supporting the local community!) We do anticipate this price to increase soon, so don’t wait, buy early – buy often! They also make fantastic gift cards!

How Can I Get Local Rewards?

You will be able to purchase local rewards cards for $15 from non-profits and resellers around Renton. A hefty portion of the proceeds goes to support local charities.

Stay tuned for details about our LOCAL REWARDS SCAVENGER HUNT CONTEST where we will be giving away many free Local Rewards cards!

If you haven’t already, create a personal account on our RelyLocal site. You’re going to need it! We will announce the official launch of Local Rewards on Facebook, Twitter, this blog, Google + and on our mailing list. Please connect with us on one or more of these platforms so you don’t miss this special opportunity!
