On a recent visit to Decatur's Ale Yeah, I got to try out the new LevelUp payment system. It's a new way to pay with your iPhone (or Android), and I have to say - it was pretty simple. It links directly to your credit or debit card.
The cool part? You can get discounts by using LevelUp. Seriously, businesses give you a credit just for using LevelUp, plus you can earn rewards for frequent spending. At Ale Yeah, they explained to us that it also benefits small businesses because the fees are lower than those for processing a credit card.
Need an excuse to try it? Through Saturday you can get a free $10 credit to use at 19 different food trucks at Atlanta Food Truck Park on Howell Mill.
Tons of Atlanta businesses are now accepting LevelUp as a form of payment. Check out the full list (and the perks for each business) on their website, and then click on over and become a member.
