Triple points for Buying Local!
Midcoast FCU understands the value of a diverse and thriving local economy, which is why we will encourage our members to buy local with their PERKS Visa®. Cardholders will receive triple points (3x) when using their card at local participating merchants.
Double Points* for Gas, Groceries and Recurring Transactions!
PERKS Visa® cardholders will now receive double points (2x) for using their card to purchase gasoline and groceries. Cardholders that use their PERKS Visa® to pay recurring bills (i.e. utilities, insurance payments, online subscriptions) will also earn double points.
Single Points for everything else!
PERKS Visa® cardholders will continue to earn single points for every dollar spent using the card that doesn't qualify for double or triple points.
Points can be redeemed for merchandise, travel services, gift cards, and even cash! Visit https://www.scorecardrewards.com/ for more information.

Participation in the 321 Local Rewards Program will demonstrate that your business values a strong, vibrant local economy. Midcoast FCU will maintain and promote a directory of local businesses from which our members will earn triple points, when shopping with their PERKS Visa®. Other future opportunities include local business marketing and coupons at Midcoast FCU ATMs. Our vision is to build a searchable online local business directory, that the entire mid-coast Maine region will use as a resource.
There is no cost to a local business wishing to be a part of the 321 Local Rewards Program. Your business is required to accept Visa® credit cards as a form of payment. Standard card interchange rates will apply for qualifying transactions.
Participating businesses are not required to be members of the Credit Union (though highly encouraged!). An enrollment application is required, confirming that the business meets our definition of a local, independent business.
