Buy Gift Cards and Get Downtown Money!

Support your favourite downtown businesses by purchasing gift cards and get rewarded with Downtown Money!

With the businesses facing another challenging month, we’re bringing back our popular spend $50 and get $25 in Downtown Money promotion on Tuesday, April 7 starting at 11 am, while quantities last. Last time we sold out of Downtown Money in less than 5 hours, so this time we’re doubling the giveaway with $5,000 in downtown money available.

How it works:
• Go to
• Find your favourite shops, restaurants, pubs, and services
• Select the gift cards you would like to purchase and add them to your cart
• Select the $25 Downtown Money Special Promotion and add one for every $50 in gift cards you purchase (spent $150? Add 3 $25 Downtown Money!)
• Check out
• Receive your gift cards (or instructions from the business via email on next steps to activate it) and Downtown Money in the mail to use at a later date

The $25 Downtown Money matching promotion is on while quantities last. When all $5,000 in downtown money have been sold out with purchases of gift cards, the site will label the promotion as sold out. Shoppers are limited to eight $25 Downtown Money gift certificates each.

There are more than 80 places to shop on! Start shopping at 11 am on Tuesday, April 7 for your chance to get free Downtown Money.

Our first priority is to keep our community safe. We want to reward people who are staying at home but still want to support their favourite downtown businesses. This is a challenging time for everyone. If you’re able to, buying gift cards right now will mean a lot for local businesses as they struggle to stay ahead of their expenses.

In this challenging time, an unprecedented number of downtown businesses are offering takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery. We have created lists of businesses currently offering shopping and food with instructions on how to order:
