Franklin Savings Bank announced today that its Buzz Points debit card rewards program has funneled over $123,000 back into the local community. Since the program was introduced in July 2015, $116,095 in points earned have been redeemed at local merchants enrolled in the program. The Buzz Points program allows FSB debit cardholders to donate their earned points to local charity as well. In 2015 and 2016, FSB was the top financial institution with the most points donated to local charities with $1,250 and $5,000, respectively, as part of a holiday season donation challenge.

“We have experienced remarkable growth with Buzz Points since we launched the program almost three years ago,” commented Ron Magoon, President & CEO. “The growth in our network of preferred local merchants and points redeemed to these businesses is truly amazing. Since we launched Buzz Points, the top three businesses with the most points redeemed towards rewards have been Smitty’s Cinema, Tilton House of Pizza and May Garden.”
