For the past 8 years, the Trade-A-Thon has been the biggest Local Gift Certificate Swap. A one-night, online, event where you can access hundreds of local gift certificates by simply swapping gift certificates from your business!

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 exactly is it…

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

 

» You will have an account(s) 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.

 

…WITHOUT SPENDING ANY OF YOUR HARD EARNED CASH!

» By participating in the Trade-A-Thon you are instantly gaining FREE marketing for your business.

 

» Not only will you be seen by other Local Business Owners, but by their employees as well!

 

» This means NEW customers for your business and NEW eyes seeing you!

Do not miss out on gaining exposure for your business, supporting local and having access to items you would normally have to purchase for cash!
