About Winery Rewards
What Is Winery Rewards?
Winery Rewards is a discount card that works with all of our participating merchants. This is the only discount/loyalty card you'll ever need. Winery Rewards is the best option when you are looking for stuff to do, places to eat, or a fun way to save money when you are shopping around.
How Does Winery Rewards Work?
Each card that is purchased is good for 1 year from the time the card is activated and is pre-loaded with tons of buy 1 get 1 frees from all your favorite local merchants. Once you receive your card and activate it, you go to the "My Card" tab to view all the pre-loaded discounts. These are what we call MAC Deals and are good for a year. With each local merchant there will be ongoing extra monthly specials and promotions that you will be able to load to your card each month.

To redeem your discounts you can simply bring your card into each participating merchant for them to scan your card and redeem the coupon. There is no need to ever cut a coupon again and best of all you will never have to remember a coupon a again.
What Do I Get With My Membership?
Being a part of the Winery Rewards™ Membership program entitles each card-holder to gain access to our vast list of local merchants. Due to the mass volume of our membership each participating merchant has joined our program to offer our members the best discounts on their products and services around. Once the card is activated your card will automatically be pre-loaded with hundreds of deeply discounted offers from all participating merchants, these discounts are what we call MAC deals.

On top of these pre-loaded discounts, each participating merchant is provided merchant software that allows them to update their discounts/specials on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. These updates are than pushed out to our membership database on a weekly basis through email. Our members simply go to myareacard.com and load additional deals and specials from their favorite local merchants directly to their card.
Is There A Limit To How Many Deals I Can Use?
As long as you have a valid membership you can use your card as many times as you want. Most deals can only be used once, but new deals are being added to the card all of the time.
