What Exactly Is It & How Does It Work?

For the past 7 years, the Trade-A-Thon has been the biggest Local Gift Certificate Exchange.  A 1-night event where you can access hundreds of local products and services by exchanging your own products and services (in Gift Certificate form).

The idea behind it was for our local businesses to purchase items for their business, for themselves, to reward their employees, or as gifts during the holiday season.

What you can expect this year…

» An online event where you (and your employees) can spend the amount you contribute (in Gift Certificates) at other locally-owned businesses around the Okanagan.


» You (and your employees) will have an account created, and the credit deposited, that you can then use to shop on the online Gift Certificate portal.


» All Gift Certificates are created through the Trade-A-Thon portal electronically. And, they are completely trackable so you know who the new faces are that are interested in your business.

Why would you want to take part?

» Exposure to NEW Customers.


» The Opportunity to Reward Yourself With Gift Certificates From Shops YOU Love.


» The Opportunity to Reward Your Employees With Gift Certificates They Can Spend In Shops THEY Love.


» The Opportunity to Reward Your Business with Marketing Services.

What You Can Expect…

Limited Edition Offers

that you will be able to shop like this!

New customers

excited to meet you and your business!

Here is how you can take part in the event!


1. Create An Offer (Gift Certificate)

Decide on the quantity & denomination of Gift Certificates you would like to offer.

(example: 20 Gift Certificates at $25 each = $500)

You can control whether you would like to offer a GENERAL Gift Certificate that can be used on any of your products or services.

OR offer a Gift Certificate that can be used towards something SPECIFIC.

**Once an offer has been submitted, we will purchase that amount from you, create an account in your name, and credit it with the same value of your submission! (Example: If you submit $500 in Gift Certificates, your account will be credited $500 to spend!)


2. Get Your Employees Involved

Do you have employees you want to reward for sticking with you?

Allow us to create their very own accounts that they can spend from on the night of the event!

As a BONUS, we will put $25 credit in each employee’s account to get them started and you can let us know if you’d like to transfer more of your credit into their accounts as a “holiday bonus”.


3. Save The Date

You (and your employees) will have one day to purchase special local products and services that you love, with your own contribution!
