Once you select and purchase your gift certificates, you will receive a confirmation email. This email has your order number and also serves as the gift certificate that you will bring into the store you purchased them from.
In order to provide the most benefit to businesses, we ask that you wait to use the gift certificates at least 7 days after you purchase them. This will allow us time to send the money from your purchase to the business. We want to avoid businesses having to honour the gift certificate without having been paid first. Otherwise, we might be causing another cash flow issue if they are used too soon.
When you are ready to use the gift certificate, print the email confirmation or pull it up on your smart phone and head down to the business and redeem the certificate for goods and/or services. The gift certificates have no cash value and no expiry date.
Each business will keep track of your balance, but be sure to write down your balance as well. Thank you for supporting your local, independent businesses!
