Community Gift Card Program Supports Local Business

UPDATE (11/27/23): Our latest Buy-One, Get-One promotion has sold out! You can still purchase gift cards without receiving a bonus card and local Concord businesses can still sign up for free to be a participating business. 


Starting on November 20th, the City of Concord and the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce are thrilled to relaunch the “Shop Concord” campaign to support your business. The program, which was developed to help small businesses that have experienced economic uncertainty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, allows a company to increase sales while also keeping our dollars local. This is the 7th relaunch since the inception of this program in November of 2020.

How it Works

Thanks to contributions from the City of Concord, for a limited time, customers who purchase the Shop Concord Card will receive a free $50 Shop Concord card with every $100 purchase, a free $25 Shop Concord Card with every $50 purchase, and a free $10 Shop Concord Card with every $20 purchase, encouraging more customers to Shop Concord and generate even more sales for your business.

Program Details for Businesses

The Shop Concord cards are managed through Yiftee, an online gift card and promotion platform that allows community eGift cards to be purchased on a centralized Yiftee page and redeemed at any participating Concord business. The Shop Concord program is designed to keep dollars local while benefiting both local businesses and residents through the promotional deal described above. Participating in the Shop Concord program is a great way for businesses to gear up for the holiday weekend and gain exposure to new customers.

The best part is there is no cost for your business to participate in the program, and setup is easy. Customers’ gift cards are managed through Yiftee’s portal, not by individual businesses. Any business that accepts MasterCard can participate, with no changes to your POS and no special devices. You can even highlight your promotions on the Concord Yiftee page, a one-stop shop for customers to access all Concord deals. So why should you sign up?

  • It’s FREE for businesses
  • Setup is easy
  • It can increase sales and traffic to your store
  • It’s a great way to promote holiday deals
