How to get started:
Create an Account
With a Tour Ontario’s Blue Coast account, you can explore and collect points throughout Sarnia-Lambton. Points can be redeemed for Tourism Sarnia-Lambton dollars (accepted at 300 local businesses).
When you click on the Explore button you will find a map of Sarnia-Lambton, which has pins indicating the location of places of interest where you can collect points. Clicking on each pin on the map gives you more information about that location, a local tip, and the number of points you can collect there. It will also let you know if the location is a rewards collection point and what the location has to offer.
Many locations are assigned a point value, which can be collected when you are within the GPS range of a location and have a connection to the internet. Pushing the “Collect Points” button while physically visiting a location will add the location’s points to your point total. To keep earning points, explore more locations. You can track your point total on Your Account page.
Once you collect enough points, those points can be redeemed for Tourism Sarnia Lambton Gift Certificates at the Tourism Sarnia-Lambton Tourism Building (1455 Venetian Blvd., Point Edward).
Hitting the “Redeem Rewards” button while physically at a Rewards location will bring up a keypad for the place owner to enter a code to deduct points from your point total in exchange for your reward.
