The City of Pleasanton is always looking for innovative ways to help our businesses thrive and now more than ever, our business community needs help to reactivate and recover from the effects of the pandemic. We recently launched a Savings Pass through a partnership with Visit Tri-Valley and Tri-Valley cities. To add to Pleasanton's business support and promotion efforts, we’re excited to introduce Gift Pleasanton, a citywide e-gift card program coming in June 2021!
Consumers can purchase Gift Pleasanton e-gift cards for gifts or to use for themselves, and companies can purchase as employee rewards, anniversary gifts, customer appreciation, survey incentives, contests and more – keeping spending local and benefiting our shops and restaurants in Pleasanton.
The e-gift cards will be available to purchase online at Pleasanton's Support Local website, www.inPleasanton.com
, beginning June 1, 2021. Once purchased, the customer will receive the e-gift card via email and can redeem on their mobile device or printed at any participating merchant. To accept the e-gift cards as payment, merchants are asked to sign up for the program. Participating businesses will then process a key-entry (like a phone order) Mastercard, and are paid through their credit card bank as a settlement, with a Mastercard CNP processing fee. The e-gift cards only work at participating merchants, so we encourage you to confirm your participation today.
There is no cost to participate in the program. Once we receive confirmation that you would like to be included in the program as a participating business, Yiftee, our technology partner, will send you an email (the “Activation Card”) to run a 10-cent charge (or your minimum charge) on a prepaid Mastercard. This is your authorization to participate and agreement to terms noted in the Yiftee Merchant Agreement.
We plan to launch Gift Pleasanton in June. Please confirm your participation as soon as possible in order to take the necessary steps to be up and running. Click the box below to sign up. We are offering introductory bonuses to encourage the community to purchase e-gift cards, i.e. buy a $25 gift card, get $10 bonus, and more. If you would like to be one of the first to sign up and have customers come use the e-gift card at your business, sign up today!
