Tucson Originals news for 2010 and holiday specials

Beginning in January 2010 (date to be announced) you will be able to sign up and receive the Tucson Originals Rewards card at any Tucson Original member restaurant.  It’s a simple process with great rewards – just fill out the form, receive your card and start eating!

You can immediately begin to receive a point for every dollar you spend at a Tucson Original restaurant. For every 150 points accrued, you will receive a gift certificate of $10, good for using at any Tucson Original restaurant for up to 50% of your dining bill (not including tax and gratuity  and not applicable towards catering or gift card purchases).

The points never expire and may be used anytime throughout the year.

  1. I have a Powercard Rewards Program card and was told to transfer to the Tudson Originals Rewards card. Explain how I do this please. Thanks

  2. I am thrilled to find there are local businesses standing up!! I have been trying to convince my in-laws to support local businesses rather than the corporations that are killing them. Rock on you all!
    Best wishes,
    MM
