RPBA Rebate Program Unveils My Weakness

Every year for the past several years, the RPBA (formerly DevCorp North), along with the Special Service Areas (SSAs) that they administer, run a “Live Love Shop Rogers Park” campaign. It’s a fantastic opportunity – benefitting both consumers and the stores that exist within the SSA districts. The offer, stated on placards that you can find throughout the community, is simple: “Collect $100 or more in receipts from at least 3 different stores within the Special Service Areas from November 22 through December 31, 2013 and receive a $25 rebate. Collect $150 or more and receive a $50 rebate.” For those of you who are organized and can keep your receipts together, it is a marvelous deal. Congratulations, as you will be warmly rewarded for supporting local businesses. The problem is that this deal is not good for disorganized souls like me who, despite our best efforts, are simply not adept at keeping track of receipts.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
