Presents Passport to Christmas!
What is the Passport to Christmas?
It is a campaign put on by the Blackfalds & District Chamber of Commerce to encourage shopping locally at Chamber Member businesses.
How Does it Work?
Sign up! Make sure you have something to stamp passports – a small self-inking stamp is the best way to go. Ideally would be something that identifies your business.
Before the promotion starts, a Chamber rep will bring by a poster, a drop box and passports for your customers.
During the promotion, customers collect one stamp from your business for every $10 spent.
Once they have collected 24 stamps to complete the passport, they can put the completed passport in your drop box and enter to win.
How Does it Work? (con’t)
Maximum amount of Passports per transaction is 4 which amounts to $980 in spending.
Passport winners can only spend the $500 in Blackfalds Bucks at businesses who participated in the passport.
For 2020 there will be 6 prizes of $500 – so an additional $3000 that must be spent at participating businesses.
Also for 2020 we would like to distribute another $1000.00 as a reward to those businesses who make referrals to participate.
Why Should Your Business Particpate?
Your business name will be printed on 12,000 passports that will be in circulation in the community.
In 2018 we had 10,000 passports in circulation, 1958 of them completed and entered into the draw representing $470,000 in local spending.
If you want to be able to accept the Blackfalds Bucks from the lucky winners, you have to participate in the promotion.
What Does It Cost?
For businesses holding a 2020 Blackfalds & District Chamber of Commerce membership, cost is $100.00.
No membership? No problem. If you would like to be a member of the Blackfalds Chamber of Commerce please call 403.506.6735 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
