Shop Local Open Rewards Program
Goochland County residents and visitors can now save money while supporting small businesses with the new Open Rewards program. Launched as a partnership between Goochland County Economic Development, Goochland County Economic Development Authority, and technology company BluDot, this customer rewards program encourages customers to earn cash back rewards while spending at local businesses.
Thanks to the Goochland County Economic Development Authority, there is NO COST for Goochland's business. The Goochland County Economic Development Authority invested $5,000 to pilot the Open Rewards program.
Customers will earn and redeem rewards through an app by scanning receipts from purchases made at local businesses. Consumers can earn 5% back in rewards (paid by EDA funds) for each local transaction. They then can then redeem their rewards through purchases at other local businesses. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN AS SUPPLIES LAST PROGRAM AND IF YOU DO NOT REDEEM BEFORE THE $5,000 RUNS OUT, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO THE REWARDS IN YOUR ACCOUNT. The success and sustainability of this program will help determine whether or not the program gets re-funded when funds run out.
