BBB CONNECT is our new loyalty and referral app available in iTunes and Google Play, enabling consumers to access our database of Accredited Businesses from anywhere at anytime. With the app, users can search Accredited Businesses, save their favourite businesses, and even earn points for checking in and referring participating Accredited Businesses. Points can be redeemed for gift cards and rewards to some of your favorite local brands.
