This February, it pays to Shop Seward! Join the Seward Chamber of Commerce for our Shop Seward promotion.
Spend $200 throughout any participating Seward Chamber of Commerce businesses from February 11 to February 16, 2021, and you’ll receive four $25 (totaling $100) vouchers to participating businesses or non-profits of your choice.
All you need to do is submit $200 of receipts for non-essential, or discretionary, items, like a new piece of art or dinner downtown, and tell us where you’d like your four vouchers to be made out to.
You can submit as many receipts as necessary to reach the $200. Not in town President’s Day weekend? Make your purchases and submit your receipts online, we’ll mail your vouchers.

All receipts must be legible, itemized, and include the date of purchase, name of the business, and the full total. Shoppers can submit as many receipts as necessary to reach the $200 minimum. Taxes, delivery fees, tips, and shipping are not eligible for the purchase total.
To reach as many people as possible, each household may only enter the program and receive vouchers once. Vouchers will be issued on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds run out.
Submitted receipts MUST BE FROM a participating Seward Chamber of Commerce member business, who has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and enrolled in the Shop Seward program.
Non-discretionary, or essential, purchases are not eligible under this program, and include, but are not limited to fuel, utilities, vehicles, mortgage or rent, firewood, medical bills or prescriptions.
Discretionary, or non-essential, purchases are eligible for use in the program and include, but are not limited to clothing, vacation lodgings, tour bookings, furniture, tools, sporting goods, art, jewelry, massage, haircuts, restaurants, cafes, bars, museums, books, flowers, and collectibles.
After uploading receipts, you will choose where they would like your four $25 vouchers to be made out to. You can choose from any combination of participating businesses, including having all the vouchers be to the same business or spread across four individual businesses. After the receipts have been certified, the four $25 vouchers will be mailed directly to shoppers at the address provided. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
A note on Non-Profits and Marijuana Businesses:
Purchases made at The Tufted Puffin are eligible to count toward your initial $200, but due to regulations, we are unable to issue vouchers for marijuana-related businesses.
While donations made to non-profits are not eligible for the initial $200, you may select a participating non-profit and we will donate your $25 voucher directly to them.
The vouchers must be used by March 31, 2021. The vouchers are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash in part or full and are valid for a single transaction only.
