There’s a new, innovative way to support local in downtown Albany. Check out this new digital gift card program from the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District (BID), and find out how you can get bonus “Downtown Dollars” to spend between now and the end of April.
Give the Gift of Downtown
The Downtown Albany Gift Card program is a completely digital gift card that can be used at over 30 participating downtown Albany locations. You have the flexibility to choose where to shop or dine, and our local community receives a much-needed boost during a difficult time.
“Winters are notoriously slow for restaurants especially, and adding on to that the fact that we’re nearly a year into pandemic-related restrictions, local support is critical for the survival of these destinations,” Georgette Steffens, Downtown Albany BID Executive Director, said in a statement.
Don’t Miss Out on the Downtown Dollars!
From now through April 15, 2021, or until funds are expended, the Downtown Albany BID is offering up to an additional $50 in bonus Downtown Dollars with the purchase of a Downtown Albany Gift Card. A $25 – $49 purchase will receive $25 in bonus Downtown Dollars, and purchases of $50 or more receive $50 in bonus Downtown Dollars.
Bonus Downtown Dollars are limited to two per purchaser and will expire on April 30, so gift card holders are encouraged to spend the bonus funds early and support businesses. (Purchased gift card funds do not expire.)
