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.
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!
Go to the App store for your specific device and search “tectrade mobile”.
Then, sign in with your email and the password you created for yourself.
(If you can’t find your login information, be sure to check your junk mail folder!)
When your Gift Certificates sell on Trade-A-Thon day, you will get a notification with the purchaser’s information and what they purchased.
If your Gift Certificates don’t sell on Trade-A-Thon day, we will keep them in inventory, and sell them throughout the year so that you still have your initial contribution to shop with!
If you don’t spend your total contribution (ex. $500), your account will remain open until all the funds have been used.
Normally, the Trade-A-Thon offers are kept hidden until the night of the event, however, we will open up a few teasers so you can do some pre-shopping if you wish!
On the day of the event (Thursday, December 3rd) the platform will go LIVE and you will shop on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Nope! This is a gift certificate system. We will not be mailing out physical gift cards and let’s face it, it’s a lot more environmentally friendly!
However, if you would like to gift an E-certificate to someone, you can do this at check-out, and they will receive an email with your special surprise.
Please see the description and details within the gift certificate for each specific vendor as restrictions may vary.
We are able to sell the quantity submitted by each vendor and no more. Send us an email if this is something that you would like in the future and we will try to get more!
Check your junk folder and save us to your contacts so you don’t have to worry about missing any other emails.
Some gift certificates may have an expiry stated. If not, it is valid until you have used it.
