We want this program to be a success for you and other Oceana County businesses!  You can help by promoting that there are 1,200 gift cards available for purchase (that's $42k for Oceana County businesses)!!!.  Here are a few ideas:


  • Post and share on your social media and sites, including community and school pages.  Sample posts:

    • Our local businesses regularly support events, fundraisers, schools, and residents – now you can support them AND get $10!  Buy gift cards June 13 -25 at!

    • Local gift cards make great Father’s Day, graduation, wedding, and other gifts.  Buy $25 cards at June 13 -25 and get an additional $10 on each card!

    • SHOP LOCAL – SUPPORT OCEANA – SCORE $10 with the Gift Card Gift Back program June 13 -25!


  • Print the attached poster and post in public places - hand them out in your place of business for others to share.


  • Post the message “ $10 Gift Card Gift Back June 13 - 25” on your outdoor signs and display.


  • Create an accompanying promotion at your business.


  • Whatever other creative ways you think of!


REDEEMING GIFT CERTIFICATES - when customers redeem their gift cards, they must provide you with an electronic or printed copy that will look like the one I inserted below.  Each card has a unique code.  Be sure to track when that code gets redeemed in case someone tries to use it twice.  I will provide you with a list of who purchased from you once sales are complete however, customers will likely try to use their card before you get the final list.  


If you would like to use our easy to use app to redeem the gift cards I am including the instructions for you below (super easy)!  You only need wi-fi to use!


1. DOWNLOAD GiftUp APP on a wi-fi enabled device 

2. Enter email & pin (you set up your pin through an email you'll receive from me later today)

3. SCAN BARCODE or enter gift card code (you can use the sample card below to try out the app!)

4. REDEEEM full or partial amount - cardholder balance will be visible



Thank you for helping others to in support of our local businesses & good luck with your gift card sales.
