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 both the 2021 card as well as the 2022 card. All prior year VIP Cards are expired. Purchase a VIP Card online or directly through the Newburyport App.
