San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
Launched in June 2011, Bernal Heights’ Bernal Bucks Rewards Card has just recently turned one. The debit card program has been a success thus far, having encouraged residents to spend over $100,000 locally in the past year. According to Bernal Heights, San Francisco real estate specialist Jeff Salgado, the existence of the card and the program is just one of the many reasons why Bernal Heights is one of the city’s best neighborhoods to live in.
“Bernal Heights is a very close-knit neighborhood,” says Salgado. “Locals here have been promoting localism even before it was the in thing to do and the card is one of the manifestations of this community-oriented thinking. Using the card to make purchases in neighborhood stores gets shoppers a five percent rebate, which they can redeem at local businesses and/or donate to their local schools or community groups. It keeps the money in the community and the fact that residents here have launched something like this is one of the reasons why Bernal Heights is such a great place to live.”
Bernal Heights is located in the southern half of San Francisco, sandwiched between the Mission District and Portola. “It’s an eclectic community with easy access to Highways 101 and 280,” adds Salgado, who also specializes in nearby Noe Valley homes and is affiliated with the McGuire Real Estate luxury brokerage.
