About Chamber Bucks
Chamber Bucks is a program designed to enhance the Chamber’s Buy Local program. Our goal is to create a means by which an individual or business could purchase a gift certificate that the receiver can redeem at any Chamber Member’s business.
To get the program started, the Chamber will offer a 10% discount on the first $10,000.00 sold. This discount is funded by the Chamber- the redeeming business still gets the full face value of the check.
You can purchase Chamber Bucks at the Norwalk Chamber office and give them as gift certificates that support businesses in your local community.
If you have received Norwalk Chamber Bucks, you can use them like a personal check at any Norwalk Chamber Member’s business.
Here is how the program works: A Norwalk business, for example, comes into the Chamber office and purchases five $10 Chamber Bucks checks to give to their employees in appreciation. The receiving employee can take those Chamber Bucks to any Norwalk Area Chamber Member business and redeem them for goods or services.
Your business accepts Chamber Bucks as payment, and processes the Chamber Bucks just like a check. There is no need to bring the check to the Chamber for redemption, just deposit them in the bank as if they were a personal check!
As a Chamber Member you have the exclusive right to accept Chamber Bucks as payment for your goods or services. All we ask is that you accept Chamber Bucks at your business and develop ways you can encourage people to redeem them at your location!
Please, if you have any questions regarding this program, or ideas to make Chamber Bucks and/or our Buy Local program better, we would love to hear from you.
