How to Redeem Chamber Gift Certificates
Chamber gift certificates work just like checks. They come in denominations of $5, $10 and $25. You just deposit the check in your nightly deposit.

1.  The Pay To The Order Of: should be the name of the business redeeming the gift certificate (see example above).
2.  You, the business, will receive the full amount of the check ($5, $10 or $25).
3.  If someone is spending $35.43 and pays with a $25 gift certificate, they owe an additional $10.43. 
4.  If someone is spending $9.75 and pays with a $10 gift certificate, you will give them $0.25 in change. 

It's that easy...if you ever have any questions about taking gift certificates, give us a call at the chamber office, 815.844.5131 and we will be happy to help.
