Something new in Phoenix is PhxBux. It’s not a currency replacement, but a coupon system (I think). If you ask for a PhxBux as change instead of U.S. Currency, you get one of the tokens which can be redeemed for a $1 discount at participating shops. The idea is to support local businesses. Three local coffee shops (among other businesses) accept the PhxBux tokens. They are Cartel Coffee Lab, Fair Trade Cafe, Conspire, and Copper Star Coffee. Do you have an opinion about PhxBux?
