SessionM and GoLocal24 Team Up for mPOINTS Rewards

Rewards

mPOINTS can be redeemed for gift cards or they can be donated to great causes

mPOINTS is GoLocal’s new loyalty program designed to reward users for reading, sharing and engaging.

All users need to do is go to the mobile version of GoLocal to start collecting your point. mPOINTS have been developed by SessionM – a GoLocal24 partner.

With their mPOINTS users can:

  • Users can donate them to worthy causes like Doctors Without Borders, ALS, Girls Who Code or dozens of others
  • They can use them to win great prizes from sweepstakes, like the newest technology
  • Or the users can cash them in for Starbucks gift cards or any number of great gift cards

The more they read and share articles and videos on social media then the more points they receive.

For users they earn mPOINTS just for completing activities like reading an article or sharing with friends. They can even earn mPOINTS for engaging with advertising and sponsors.

Then the GoLocal user can redeem those mPOINTS for awesome rewards. Rewards include gift cards, charitable donations and free merchandise.

The mPOINT program is running across all three GoLocal sites: GoLocalPDX, GoLocalProv, and GoLocalWorcester

The NAACP Providence Branch awarded GoLocalProv’s News Reporter and Editor Kate Nagle the Ida B. Wells Award for her contributions in coverage of important stories facing Rhode Island’s minority community. The award was presented at the 101st Annual Dinner of the NAACP on Friday, October 24.

Previously this year, GoLocalProv won:

The Metcalf Award for Diversity in the Media that has been given yearly to honor outstanding journalism — and was awarded in 2014 to GoLocalProv.com for its coverage of the Davey Lopes swimming pool closure and the lack of recreational opportunities provided to Providence children.

The Fund for Community Progress honored community leader GoLocalProv in April. The digital media company was recognized for creating vital local news information that is free to the public. “Access to local news that is responsibly researched and investigated is critical to a democratic and participatory society,” said Sally Turner, Executive Director for the Fund. “We are especially proud to recognize a home-grown Rhode Island media company.”
