Cleveland, Tn., Deli Swearing Off Credit Cards On Feb. 27

Friday, February 22, 2013

A Cleveland, Tn., family restaurant is swearing off credit cards on Feb. 27.

Jennifer Majeske of Deli-Boys, 2538 Keith St., said the tech-friendly establishment is the first in the area to allow customers to pay with their smart phone device using the Level-Up system.

She said, "Level-Up allows our customers to pay with a phone app that saves time and money. For every $50 our customers spend they earn $5 in credit. Its like a Reward Card without the card and our way of thanking our loyal customers.

We are able to provide this reward by saving cost of expensive credit fees and use it to reward our customers instead."

She added, "Deli-Boys is always on the lookout on how to be on the cutting edge. We may be a small local family-owned restaurant, but we a have a big love for our technology. From our digital menu boards, USB and outlet charging at the tables, sound system, LED TVs and now offering streamline payments from smartphones we want to stand out from the competition.

"On Feb. 27, Deli-Boys will only be accepting payment by Level-Up and cash. We are ditching the traditional swipe of the credit card for the day. We will have normal business hours from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. During this time we will be offering Level-Up incentives for first time users, free samples from our menu items, giveaways and more."
