Shop Til You Drop Downtown
On First Fridays from October to December, you can spend $50 at Historic Downtown Perry’s stores and boutqiues and earn a $10 Downtown Dollars gift card!
To receive the $10 Downtown Dollars gift card, you must provide the itemized receipt totally at least $50, not including taxes or gift card purchases from downtown stores or boutiques. The purchase must be made on the first Friday of the month and the receipt must show the date. This program will run beginning October 6 and run until funds are depleted.
What is an itemized receipt?
It shows what you ordered, and what your total was before tax and tip. It is the same receipt you would use if you were requesting reimbursement for travel expenses through your employer.
Only funds spent on food or alcohol are eligible for this program. Taxes, tips, or funds paid to purchase gift cards or gift certificates are not eligible expenses.
How do I submit my receipts?
Receipts can be submitted along with your contact information by completing the form here.
Can I share a receipt with someone else if we split the cost of the meal?
No, it isn’t possible for us to spend the time to track receipts shared by multiple people. We recommend that one person claim the receipt and share the $10 gift card.
Can I submit receipts for a store or boutique outside of Downtown Perry?
No, this is a program funded by the Perry Main Street Advisory Board. The receipt submission form will only allow you to submit receipts from among the stores from the Downtown District. If you notice a store from downtown is not in the approved list on the submission form, please email Alicia.Hartley@perry-ga.gov and we can research the issue.
Am I eligible for more than one $10 Gift Card?
Yes, for each $50 you spend at downtown stores or boutiques you will receive a $10 Downtown Dollars gift card. Receipts can only be submitted once.
What businesses accept the $10 Downtown Gift Card?
Not every business in Downtown Perry accepts the gift card. A list of stores that accept Downtown Dollars can be found here. If your downtown business would like to accept Downtown Dollars, please contact Alicia.Hartley@perry-ga.gov to get registered.
Is this a physical gift card?
No, the card is available electronically or, if you choose, you can print it on a piece of paper. You can show the card to the vendor on paper or your phone, and they key the number in manually in the CC terminal. You can only redeem this card at participating vendors. Participating businesses can be found here.
