Think Bainbridge Bucks this Christmas

What are Bainbridge Bucks?

Bainbridge Bucks are one of the Chamber’s ways to promote shopping local in Bainbridge and Decatur County.  The “bucks” are purchased from the Chamber, dollar for dollar.  When they are purchased, we include a list of retailers that accept them.

How can I buy Bainbridge Bucks?

They can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, and are issued in $15, $20, $25 and $50 denominations.

Why should I accept Bainbridge Bucks?

Bainbridge Bucks are a great way to promote your business.  Only Chamber members can accept “bucks,” and we love to promote our members! Nearly $30,000 in “bucks” are purchased each year from the Chamber.  Included with each “buck” is a list of retailers that accept them.  Additionally, they are a great way to promote shopping local and keep money here in Bainbridge and Decatur County.

How do I deposit Bainbridge Bucks?

Bainbridge Bucks are just like a check, and should be deposited just as you normally deposit checks.

What if the customer owes more or less than the amount of “bucks” they have?

If the amount owed by the customer is more than what the “buck” is worth, the customer would pay cash or credit for the difference.  For example, if a customer buys something that is $30 and they give you $20 in Bainbridge Bucks, they would pay you the additional $10 either with cash or on their credit or debit card.

If the amount owed by the customer is less than the amount of “bucks” they have, you would give them their change in cash.  For example, if a customer makes a purchase for $15 and gives you $25 in Bainbridge Bucks, you would accept the “bucks” and give them their $10 change in cash.  *Do not return their “bucks” to them.  You will deposit them just like a check.

What do I have to do to start accepting Bainbridge Bucks?

Call the Chamber today at 229-246-4774 or email adrienne@bainbridgegachamber.com!  We will add you to our list that we give out and drop off a window cling to you.  It’s that easy!
