Shop Durham Card

With a Shop Durham card, you get exclusive freebies, deals, and discounts at hundreds of locally owned, independent Durham businesses — all year long.

So, what is Shop Durham?

Shop Durham is a card program that gets you rewards, discounts, and freebies at hundreds of locally owned businesses all over Durham. We’re pretty excited to have 230 and counting business participating like Durham Co-Op Market, Cocoa Cinnamon, Monuts, Durham Distillery, Joe Van Gogh, and more!

We know that for every $100 spent at a chain store, an average of $14 is reinvested in the community. For every $100 spent at a local store, an average of $45 is reinvested in the community.

That money maintains our schools, paves our roads, employs our friends and neighbors and makes Durham a wonderfully diverse and interesting place to live.

Shop Durham is a small, local grassroots operation with a big mission: To help keep Durham local.

In 2017, the Best of the Bull team launched Shop Durham with nothing more than a love for the great city of Durham and its local businesses.

The program was designed to reward you for shopping locally, but it’s so much more than that. When you use your Shop Durham card, you are stimulating our local economy by keeping your dollars in Durham- which creates jobs & embraces what makes Durham unique.

We also assist with fundraising efforts for Durham nonprofits like Duke Homestead, Scrap Exchange, Hope Animal Rescue, and many more.

With hundreds of participating businesses, including spots to eat or to grab coffee, photographers to dentists and everything in-between, the Shop Durham Card rewards you for discovering new local businesses and we bet you’ll find your new favorite place in there.
