In 2018, Midcoast Federal Credit Union successfully launched 321 Local Rewards, a credit card loyalty program whereby Perks VISA cardholders receive triple rewards points for making purchases from locally owned participating businesses. The program received strong initial interest from the business community, with over 144 businesses with 181 locations joining in its first year. “We were thrilled with the level of community support, but we knew that in order for the program to continue to grow, we would need a different format for our members to easily search and learn about their regional business options.” shares Lori Saucier, SVP Marketing/IT, “That’s how www.midcoastbuylocal.me was conceived!”
The site also has a bit of its own colorful vernacular with a blog section, giving an insider’s perspective on life in Mid Coast Maine. From the best swimming holes to lobster rolls to charitable organizations doing great things in their communities, we celebrate the region that we call home.
