Bonus Buy: Buy $25 Downtown Dollars, get $10 for free

January 12, 2021

The Downtown Dayton Partnership is offering a special bonus buy deal for those who purchase Downtown Dollars, the new, e-gift card program designed to keep local dollars with our downtown businesses. For every $25 Downtown Dollars purchased, an extra $10 of Downtown Dollars will be delivered in a separate e-gift card to the buyer.

Downtown Dollars is one e-gift card that is redeemable at more than 60 participating businesses in downtown Dayton, including restaurants, pubs, retailers and services. A full list of the businesses and a link to purchase Downtown Dollars is available at

“Every time someone buys and uses Downtown Dollars, that’s money that directly impacts the bottom lines of our small businesses,” Sandra K. Gudorf, president of the Downtown Dayton Partnership, said. “We created this simple, e-gift card to connect more than 60 independent, local businesses in a network where customers can purchase a variety of food, drinks, shopping and more with one card.”

The bonus Downtown Dollars will be delivered to the purchaser in separate $10 gift vouchers from their $25 purchase. The $25 Downtown Dollars e-gift card purchased by the customer does not expire, but the $10 bonus card(s) will expire if not used before Feb. 28, 2021. This promotion is capped at a maximum of $100 in Bonus Buy Dollars per customer.

The $10 bonus buys are limited, and are only available until Jan. 31, 2021, or while Bonus Buy funds last – so be sure to grab your Downtown Dollars now before this special offer is gone!

Downtown Dollars gives access to the best shopping, dining and entertainment in Downtown Dayton with one card, conveniently stored on a phone or other mobile device.
