The Best of NewburyportSM VIP Program is a local loyalty program that rewards VIP Card members with discounts EACH TIME they dine and shop at participating Greater Newburyport restaurants and retailers. The goal of the program is to remind everyone to "shop local" and support our small businesses owners. Purchase one VIP Card for $25 or two for $40 and $10 of your purchase gets donated to a local nonprofit partner of your choice. Newburyport.com partners with 23 local nonprofit organizations and donates 40% of VIP Card revenues to these organizations.
The VIP Card Program gives members a choice of purchasing a Digital VIP Card in the Newburyport App or a Physical VIP Card. There is no swiping or scanning. Digital VIP Card users simply TAP the card image to show a valid VIP Card. Physical VIP Card users just show their card when making purchases.
The Newburyport App enables digital VIP Card display and it also provides users with a convenient directory to view discounts. The businesses can be sorted into four categories: Eat, Shop, Stay and Experience and there is also a search field. If App uses answer yes to the location questions when downloading the App, it will help remind them to use their Digital VIP Card at businesses that are near. Physical VIP Card users can view discounts and print the discounts list on the VIP Card Discounts page of Newburyport.com.
Digital VIP Cards are valid one year from purchase date and physical VIP Cards expire at the end of each calendar year. Choose the Physical VIP Card and receive the 2021 card. All 2020 and prior year VIP Cards are expired. VIP Cards can be purchased online, through the Newburyport App, at the Custom House Gift Shop or The Newburyport Art Association.

The Greater Newburyport/Bura Alliance is a non-profit organization working to connect residents of the local coastal community of Newburyport across the Atlantic to a rural community in Eastern Kenya—Bura. The alliance is committed to fostering friendships, cross-cultural understanding, education, and leadership development between the two communities. While an entire ocean may separate Newburyport and Kenya, the GNBA manages to make a huge impact in the lives of those living in Bura from afar.
Newburyport's Snow Angels Program is a snow removal service created to help senior citizens and those with physical disabilities. If you are looking for ways to give back in our local community please sign up to shovel! Currently the program is in strong need of volunteers as they have more requests than they do Snow Angles.

Moving is already a challenging task, so make your big day go as smoothly as possible and compare moving companies before selecting one. While cost is always an important factor, sometimes the "best deal" ends up with a u-haul pulling up on moving day, three hours late, with a rag tag crew handling your goods. Instead, follow these simple moving tips to make sure you get the services you should not only expect, but deserve.
