If you live in Chicago, it’s impossible not to turn on social media and see someone commenting on the beautiful weather one day, then crying about the snow the next day. Nonetheless, no matter what the weather is outside or how deep the snow is, Chicagoans keep it moving and fun things like dining out or shopping don’t stop (we simply wear layers and put on a pair of warm and fashionable boots).
This week spring officially arrives and we have truly earned this season. I recently learned of a cool way to celebrate the return of spring and sunshine…SPRING Rewards. This is a new rewards program that safely works through your own debit or credit card and removes the fuss of keeping up with coupons. There are restaurants, bars, and boutiques all around town that are offering special rewards for those who sign up (no fee to join). Once you make the purchase with the debit or credit card linked to your SPRING account, the card will automatically receive the reward credit.
An example of a participating store and its offer is Universal Sole, a running specialty store that sells running shoes and accessories. They are offering a $20 cash back reward for every $250 you spend with them. With the weather changing you will find more Chicagoans jogging on the lake and signing up for 5K races and runs, so a discount on running gear is always a plus.
You can check out the complete list of participating locations here. There will also be 50+ pop-up events at SPRING locations on Thursday, March 20, which is the first day of spring.
Thanks to Chicago Blogger Network for inspiring today’s discussion.
