BuyCoastal Rewards for Shoppers

BuyCoastal is a Customer Loyalty Program for local businesses here on the Coastside.

We’ve designed BuyCoastal so that all you need is your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone. When you make a qualifying purchase at a local business or restaurant, just start up iCoastside, do a couple clicks, and scan the merchant’s Points Card with your SmartPhone camera. The system keeps track of your points, and it even lets you know when you have enough points to redeem for discounts or other rewards

Our local merchants would like to see you more, especially during weekdays. And they’re willing to give you some enticing incentives to make it worth your while. And wouldn’t it be convenient to do more of your shopping & dining closer to home?

How does it work?

BuyCoastal is a feature within the iCoastside mobile app. If you don’t have it, just go to your App Store, type “icoastside” in the search bar, and install the app. On the iPad, be sure to select “iPhone apps” when you search.

Now that you have iCoastside, it’s pretty simple:

  1. Click on the iCoastside app.
  2. Click on BuyCoastal.
  3. Do the one-time Registration for the BuyCoastal program.
  4. Click the name of the merchant or “Demo BuyCoastal”
  5. Click on “Earn Points”
  6. Aim your camera at the QR code (or any QR code):
  7. Once you hear the ‘beep’, the points are yours. Easy.


When you Earn Points, the merchant receives an email with your name and your email address, and the number of points awarded. Also, when you Earn or Redeem points, your location is used to verify the transaction and to prevent abuse. This information is not shared with any third parties. Please review the BuyCoastal customer terms of service.
