Frequently Asked Questions
So how exactly do I collect and redeem rewards points?
To collect or redeem points, present your Local Card or app scan code to the staff when you pay in-store. The staff will scan your code to give or redeem points.
Can I shop at one business and redeem rewards at another business right away?
Yes, you can. That’s the beauty of our system. You can earn Local Points when you get a haircut and then spend the points like cash when you buy a coffee.
How much is 1 rewards point worth?
We like to keep it simple. 1 Local Point equals 1 dollar in value at all participating businesses. For example, 1.05 Local Points equates to $1.05.
How do the rewards points work?
When Local Points rewards are given by the business, we transfer the dollar equivalent into our bank account. When you redeem the points at any business in the network, we transfer the dollar equivalent to the redeeming business. In this way the money stays within the network of participating businesses.
How do I link my Local Card to the app?
If you received a Local Card, first register the card. The user name and password you create during registration will work in the app. If you'd like to attach a Local Card to the app account you've already created, email us and we'll get it sorted out. We're working on an app feature to make this easier.
What do you do with my personal information?
The only personal information we collect from you is your email address. We use it to password protect and backup your points, and to send you occasional emails with program updates and bonus Local Point offers. If there is a support issue, we may have to collect a bit more info to resolve the matter – with your permission of course! We will not use this additional information for any other purpose.
Is there a fee to join the program?
No, it's free.
Is The Local Frequency team from Winnipeg?
We’re Winnipeggers and we love our city. Supporting local business is something we care about personally and we want to make a difference.
