The Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce is asking all residents with old Chamber Bucks to please stop in and have a new check reissued. For a number of years, a certificate was used as Chamber Bucks then the Chamber moved to using paper checks. Chamber Bucks have an expiration date of one year, but we have been seeing some old ones being used.
These Chamber Bucks were given with the intention of someone spending them. In some cases, there are checks and certificates from many years ago that are still circulating and expired. The Chamber is allowing a one-time offer to get any old Chamber Bucks reissued to the new format.
Any checks that are older than one year and not reissued will be null and void after August 1. All new Chamber Bucks checks will have a 2-year expiration date to allow residents plenty of opportunity to spend them at local merchants. The Chamber also encourages local merchants and banks to check the dates on all Chamber Bucks and not accept any expired ones. There is no easier way to keep money in Fairfield! Chamber Bucks can only be used at local Chamber Member businesses. They make perfect gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, giveaways or incentive programs. Anyone can buy them! Many employers purchase in bulk to hand them out to employees for occasions throughout the year.
Residents can stop in the Chamber office at 204 West Broadway any weekday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and get a new check issued with a 2-year expiration date. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Chamber at 641-472-2111 or by emailing [email protected]
