Tips and FAQs

How do I Participate in the Inman Square Loyalty Program?

To support Inman Square’s vibrant local businesses during construction, the Community Development Department launched the Inman Square Loyalty Program. To participate:

  • Pick up an Inman Square Loyalty Card at a participating Inman Square business.
  • Make 6 (six) purchases at participating businesses each month and get your card stamped after each transaction.
  • Return your completed Loyalty Card (6 stamps) to drop boxes located throughout Inman Square.
  • Be entered to win a $50.00 gift certificate to an Inman Square business of your choice. Two winners will be chosen by raffle at the end of each month while construction is ongoing.
Participants are limited to submitting one completed Loyalty Card per month. 

Note: gift cards cannot be used for wine, liquor or tobacco purchases, per Massachusetts state law.

Participating businesses are indicated with a heart icon in the map below. Download a Loyalty Program Map (PDF) here.
