What are H-Bucks?
H-Bucks are gift certificates, purchased through the Chamber, that can be spent at participating Chamber member’s businesses. H-Bucks look like checks, but spend like cash. They are designed to be purchased with the intent of keeping dollars in Reno County. The “H” in H-Bucks stands for Hometown. Hometown spending helps us all!
How do I purchase H-Bucks?
H-Bucks can be purchased at the Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce, 117 North Walnut, in person, or by phone at 620-662-3391. You may purchase H-Bucks with cash or credit card. H-Bucks come in $10 and $25 increments. There is no processing fee to purchase H-Bucks. You pay only for the amount listed on the H-Buck certificate. If you have a large quantity of H-Bucks to purchase, be sure to call ahead so we can have them ready for you when you come to pick them up!.
Who can use H-Bucks?
Anyone can purchase and use H-Bucks, however, only Chamber members may accept them in their place of business. Purchasing H-Bucks as a holiday bonus for your employees or a gift for your family is the perfect way to ensure that hard-earned local dollars are spent within the local community.
How can I benefit from H-Bucks?
As a CHAMBER MEMBER, H-Bucks can only be spent at your business. Providing a Chamber sponsored certificate program is not a new concept. In 2011, the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce sold $200,000+ of their Smokey Hill Silver certificates. That’s over $200,000 guaranteed to stay in the local economy and be spent at Chamber businesses!
How do H-Bucks benefit the community?
H-Bucks benefit the community by keeping dollars local in Hutchinson and Reno County. Keeping money in our local economy encourages businesses to expand and develop, helps to fund local government budgets, creates local jobs, reduces our carbon footprint, and fosters community pride. We all win!
How do I accept H-Bucks at my Business?
H-Bucks look like a check, but should be accepted like cash at your business. They may be deposited directly into your bank account as if they were a check written to you! If you have further questions about accepting H-Bucks, please contact Lori Webb at the Chamber, 620-662-3391 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
