What they are:

Chamber Bucks are a valid bank check that spends just like cash and can be used at any Wetumpka Area Chamber member business. The program is designed to promote community members to "Shop Locally First."

 

Why Chamber Bucks?

Chamber Bucks make great gifts! Consumers can purchase Bucks for birthday gifts, wedding gifts, gifts for moms, dads, grads, college students, and for holiday gift-giving. The Bucks can be used to purchase merchandise, products, and services at nearly 250 businesses.

 

How Does the Program Work?

Chamber Bucks are like super gift certificates that are purchased at the Chamber office and spent at a Chamber Member business. After receiving a Chamber Buck check for payment of products or services, the Chamber Member processes it for deposit as they would any other check.

These are certificates that can be used the same as cash. They can only be purchased through the Chamber and redeemed at participating Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce businesses. They can only be used for goods and services. The certificates are good for 6 months from date of purchase. If you have any additional questions, please contact the chamber office at (334) 567-4811.

We are in the process of creating a brochure and a listing of Chamber member businesses that will accept chamber bucks!
