Should I Accept Chamber Gift Certificates?

What Does My Customer Deed To Do?

The customer (redeemer) uses the paper money just as they would cash at a participating business. It spends just like real money. But there is no cash back. Most of our gift certificate holders are aware of this (and it’s stated on the certificates as well). This more often than not encourages the gift certificate holder to spend the entire amount or MORE! Either way, you are compensated for the total gift certificate.
