Company Summary

Local Punch serves as an electronic punch card for shopping locally, loyally. When a user purchases at a participating merchant using the app, they are credited $1 toward their account, and receive a $10 credit every tenth time they shop. The merchant essentially pays $2 for an acquired customer. So, advertisers only pay for customers coming through the door and customers have an expansive cash back program that rewards them for shopping locally.
