Indio’s Rewards program offers 5% cash back on purchases and first 125 receive bonus of $20

INDIO – In an innovative move, this city has launched a new “Shop Local” rewards program, Open Rewards, an exciting initiative designed to encourage the community to support local businesses by offering a 5% cashback on purchases made within the city. The app, available for free on both Apple and Android platforms, aims to strengthen the community’s economic resilience and foster a sense of local pride.

It is the first city in the Coachella Valley to offer the program. Late last year, the cities of Lancaster and Antioch started it in their respective cities.

Residents can now enjoy the convenience of earning cash rewards simply by shopping at local Indio establishments. Once the Open Rewards app is downloaded, residents can register their account and easily navigate the comprehensive directory of eligible businesses in the city. Open Rewards allows customers to earn rewards on every purchase from businesses in the program. The first 125 people to sign up for the program will receive an exclusive bonus of $20 in free rewards, adding an extra incentive to participate.

To redeem rewards, users need only to upload their purchase receipts directly through the app. The process is quick, straightforward, and ensures that residents can effortlessly enjoy the benefits of supporting local businesses.

“The City of Indio is committed to the success of our business community for both new and longstanding businesses and I am thrilled to see Indio spotlight the importance of shopping local,” said Mayor Lupe Ramos Amith. “I encourage all of our residents to download this app today, take advantage of the fantastic rewards and play an active role in supporting the local businesses that take center stage in the City of Indio.”

This “Shop Local” program is fully funded by the City of Indio, and there is no cost for businesses to join. No action is required from businesses to give or redeem rewards, it’s all done through the app. Indio businesses may receive free promotional materials, including flyers, tent cards, social media images and other promotional materials by emailing [email protected].
