Vicinity for Cardholders

Vicinity believes that customers want the benefit of being recognized and rewarded for shopping at their favourite neighbourhood stores, but are tired of carrying (and losing) countless cards. Vicinity provides a better, easier way to get rewarded for shopping local.

Reaping the rewards of being part of the Vicinity program is simple:

  1. Pick up a FREE Vicinity rewards card at any participating business
  2. Register with your phone number
  3. Instantly start earning rewards in your neighbourhood and all over town. (The same card works everywhere, so you’ll never need to dig around in your wallet again.)

Want to check your points?
Easy, just register your card and check your balance online or download our app (from Apple or Android) and check it on your mobile device.

Want to earn even more points?
Connect your card to Facebook and opt-in to our sharing features to earn bonus points.
