As part of the Stoneham Chamber’s commitment to support the local economy and our members, we are launching a gift certificate program to encourage residents to shop local for the holidays and beyond. There is no cost for Chamber members to participate and many businesses will benefit from having this program in place.
SIMPLE AND COST-EFFECTIVE
There is no paperwork, simply email a picture or mail the redeemed certificate to the Chamber. We reimburse you 100% of the face value within two weeks of receipt of your redeemed certificate information.
HOW IT WORKS
- Stoneham Chamber Gift Certificate is purchased from the Chamber office or online at stonehamchamber.org/gift-certificates
- Recipient redeems gift certificate using entire amount (no change should be given) to purchase goods or services, choosing from one of the participating businesses that will be provided with the gift certificate, as well as listed on the Chamber website.
- Participating business signs gift certificate acknowledging redemption
- Participating business turns in the gift certificate to the Chamber office (via email, mail or in person) and, within two (2) weeks of receiving redeemed certificates, the Chamber will issue a reimbursement check for one hundred percent (100%) of the face value of each redeemed Gift Certificate.
- The Chamber advertises the program and your business on the Chamber website, emails, publications and print and social media promotions. Your business name is promoted on every certificate. A special icon is used in the Chamber’s online directory for all participants, and you are provided a special “Stoneham Chamber Gift Certificates Accepted Here” decal to display at your business.
- Gift certificates expose your business to new customers who may not have been familiar with you.
- Gift certificates encourage consumers to spend more at your business. Many times gift certificates are viewed as “free money” and because no change will be given, more will be spent when redeemed.
