Supporting Local Traders

12 May 2021

As part of the Choose How U Move East Ren programme you can not only reward yourself or donate to many national charities already listed in the 'Redeem' or 'Donate' sections in the app, but did you know you can also use your BetterPoints to support local businesses and local charities too?

This page is dedicated to showcasing local traders in East Renfrewshire and how they're participating in the programme. Some of these local traders have supplied vouchers and / or discounts for their shops, or they may even have donated one of the fabulous prizes on offer in one of our prize draws.  Keep an eye on this page for new traders participating, details of offers and what's up for grabs between now and the end of October. You don't want to miss out! 

What's the catch?

There isn't one! All you need to do is take your phone with you whenever you walk, run, wheel or cycle to earn BetterPoints and once you have enough to exchange simply tap the 'Redeem' button in your app. You can then convert your points into vouchers or donate to charity.

You may also be one of the lucky prize winners and if so you'll be notified via an in-app message.To be entered into a prize draw you will need to earn BetterTickets.
