2014 COLLINGSWOOD CASH PROMOTION DETAILS BELOW
COLLINGSWOOD CASH BONUS SALE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22!
Collingswood to give away $45K to shoppers Nov 22 as part of yearly ‘free money’ promo
For the seventh year in a row, Collingswood will give away tens of thousands of dollars in Collingswood Cash to folks that enjoy shopping, dining and services in town.
On November 22 shoppers that purchase $50 in Collingswood Cash –the Borough’s equivalent to a mall gift card– will receive an additional $20 to spend anywhere in town. The Borough will sell $112,500 worth of Collingswood Cash and give away $45,000. Shoppers that buy a max of $400 during the promotion receive a bonus $160 to spend in town. The bonus money is limited and has traditionally sold out in roughly an hour. The yearly promotion greatly stimulates the local economy by incentivizing holiday shopping in Collingswood.
“There will be $157,500 in the hands of shoppers that can only be used in Collingswood,” said Collingswood Mayor James Maley. "It's a promotion that brings our businesses a lot of attention and directly impacts the shopping season here."
Over the past six years, more than half a million dollars worth of Collingswood Cash will have been sold to spend at local shops during the holidays. The decision to increase the amount is a result of the popularity of the promotion which brings lines at all three selling locations and sells out very quickly.
Bonus Cash sales start on November 22. Shoppers can come to Collingswood Borough Hall (678 Haddon Ave) or 1st Colonial Community Bank (1040 Haddon Ave) starting at 9 a.m. to purchase a maximum of $400 Collingswood Cash, netting a free $160 to spend, give as gifts, etc. (Note: Sun Bank is no longer a part of the Collingswood Cash program.) The promotion comes with a coupon book filled with additional offers from more than 20 Collingswood shops, restaurants and services, deepening the discounts and offering specials all over town. Bonus cash is first come, first served.
Shoppers commonly buy gifts and dinners, but have gotten cars repaired, taken vacations, gotten dental work done and even had animals taxidermied with the bonus cash. The promotion is funded by the Business Improvement District tax, a collective fund used to support the business districts.
The cash incentive is paired with the Borough’s yearly effort to put together a beautiful shopping streetscape in the business districts. Merchants extend shopping hours and carolers sing on Fridays and Saturdays, storefronts are hung with garland, the town is dressed in more than a quarter-million lights and parking is free in December. Collingswood even guarantees snow during the season, setting the winter mood with snow machines throughout the downtown.
The standard certificates last forever but the bonus cash expires on March 31, 2015. All businesses in town accept Collingswood cash. Bonus cash comes only with Collingswood Cash purchased in $50 denominations. Collingswood Cash is sold year round at face value. The promotion is limited to the season and quantity.
