The best way to use your Golden Buckeye Card is to ask. Some, but not all, participating merchants display the Golden Buckeye logo. Look for it on their door, in their window, or at the checkout. Many businesses, however, do not advertise that they participate in the program. Even if you don’t see a logo posted, ask if they participate. Anytime and anywhere you spend money, ask if they accept the card or offer another discount for which you may qualify. If they say "no," encourage them to sign up and tell them that you'll be a regular customer when they do!
Due to the large number of participating businesses throughout Ohio, we do not maintain a complete online or printed list of businesses. However, we do highlight recently added or updated businesses to give you ideas of the types of businesses that may accept the card or offer other types of benefits in your community. You can also follow the Golden Buckeye Program page on Facebook for business suggestions, shopping tips, consumer alerts, and more.
Other card perks
