The holidays are around the corner and this year at the City of Gulf Breeze, we want to encourage everyone in our community to keep their holiday shopping local!! Our #Savethebreeze Gift Card makes the perfect gift or stocking stuffer and is also a way to show support for our local businesses! Consumers can purchase the Card as a gift for a friend, colleague or family member and companies can send it to employees as a special holiday gift. The important thing is the dollars stay local and benefit our shops and restaurants in our community.
How it works:
People will purchase the Cards online and email, text or print them for use in your shops and restaurants. To accept the Cards, you need to be able to process a key-entry (like a phone order) Mastercard, and your are paid through your credit card bank in your normal settlement, with your normal Mastercard CNP processing fee. The Cards only work at participating merchants, i.e. those who opt-in.
How to Join:
There is no cost to you to participate in the program. To opt-in, you simply run a a 10 cent charge (or whatever is your minimum) on a prepaid Mastercard that Yiftee, our technology partner, will send you by email (the “Activation Card”). This is your authorization to participate and your are agreeing to Yiftee’s Merchant Agreement found here: Yiftee’s Merchant Agreement
This program is available to all businesses located in the 32561 and 32563 zip codes.
Please complete the below online form if your are interested in being able to accept these Cards and the additional business they bring to your store during the holidays.
The ongoing pandemic, Hurricane Sally and the closure of the 3 mile bridge, caused by rogue barges has put unprecedented pressure on Gulf Breeze businesses. Typically, the City’s commercial districts enjoy 55,000 passing cars a day, recently reduced to several thousand. This decline in traffic translates to a drastic reduction in sales in a time of year that is typically fruitful.
Help #savethebreeze by supporting our businesses and shopping local!
