On Valentine's Day, over 30,000 Portlanders will get a big hug from the local economy when their Supportland points will magically be worth double. From midnight to midnight on 2/14/12, cardholders will be flocking to supportland.com where they can get rewards that may have previously been beyond their grasp.

Perhaps a Soak and Sauna Pass at Common Ground? Sewing Machine Service at Modern Domestic? Or maybe $50 towards a tattoo at Icon Tattoo? We have rewards to catch everyone's fancy (even an oil change at Everett Street Autoworks for the brass tacks folks among us). Last year 435 rewards were taken during the Valentine's Day Doubler (and we'd only been launched 4 months)—this year our network is over 30,000 strong. And while this seems like a cute fuzzy idea, we have a serious mission of keeping local Portland's portion of the approximately $15.7 billion that is spent nationally on Valentine's Day (2011, NRF).

From now until then, citizens will be racking up points shopping local and will start zeroing in on their favorite rewards. On Valentine's Day, stay tuned for special reward releases and updates through our Facebook and Twitter (#locallove) channels.

Need a crash course on how to use your Supportland card? We got you covered.
