To participate, each member must get a Redner’s Rewards / 1% Save-A-Tape card. By using your card each time you purchase merchandise at Redners, your receipt will be designated as a 1% Save-A-Tape customer receipt. Please place all receipts in the bin located in the Welcome Center to be tallied. For questions, please contact missions.
