Support Local and Save

The Benton REA Co-op Connections Card

Use Your Benton REA Co-op Connections Card to save at local businesses this holiday shopping season.

Gift wish lists are being made with haste and it’s getting a little colder outside. The holiday shopping season is right around the corner.

Speaking of around the corner, there are plenty of locally owned businesses in our neck of the woods that can provide unique gifts and experiences for your loved ones, and Benton REA᾽s Co-op Connections member benefit program can help you save while you keep dollars in the local economy.

This winter, power a small business comeback and visit the shops owned by our friends and neighbors. To find all the ways to save locally, visit or download the free Co-op Connections smartphone app in the Apple or Google app stores.

Use the app’s “Deals Near Me” option as you shop at local merchants or anytime you are out running errands. Keep in mind, with many participating dining options, you can fill up on grub while you fill your trunk with toys, clothes, home goods and more.

If you own a business and want to offer Benton REA members a Co-op Connections discount, call 509-786-8265 or email

As you are busy stockpiling gifts for family and friends, keep our small business community in mind this holiday season.
