Supporting local business in Portland

I saw a great news story on MSNBC yesterday about an electronic local business loyalty card in Portland, OR called Supportland. It allows local businesses which subscribe to the service to track new customers, see what other businesses their customers patronize to allow crossover advertising, and offer rewards to frequent customers. The card is free to consumers who earn rewards through their loyal support of participating local businesses. An interesting initiative deserving of additional research.
