Spot on saving money

By BRIAN SMITH

People are always into saving money. A new program gives them a way to gain rewards simply by shopping their favorite stores.

Through the SpotOn program, a number of Weatherford businesses are helping customers save money and the great thing is, one card works for all the businesses. Brandon Hutchens with Hutch’s Pie and Sandwich Shop on College Park Drive, one of the first in the city to start the program, says response has been great since the program started about a month ago.

“We have signed up about 120 people,” Hutchens said. “It’s been good.”

After signing up for the program, which is free, cardholders are asked to scan their card to receive a point for each purchase. Cards are given as are items which fit on your key ring. Every time a person comes into a participating business, they can gain special discounts.

By visiting spoton.com, the app can be downloaded to your phone so no cards are needed. Once at the website, click on the for customers link and provide a phone number so the link can be texted right to the phone

Right now, the points are not transferable between businesses, meaning the points you earn at one business have to be used at that business. One card, however, can be used at all the businesses.

At Hutch’s, discounts such as 20 percent off a purchase, free pies, cups of soup or a sandwich can be achieved. You can redeem your discount immediately or let them add up.

Other restaurants, such as Nizza Pizza, Cowboys Ranch Café, Bakers’ Ribs, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and Sunny Street Café, are using the program. Non restaurants taking part include Merle Norman, AIM Mail Center, Something Special and Scentimentals Boutique and a host of others. A full list of participating businesses can be downloaded to any SmartPhone.
