Downtown Sacramento Partnership Introduces “Downtown Dollars” E-Gift Card Program to Support Local Businesses and Spur Retail Recovery

(June 21, 2021)  Downtown Sacramento Partnership is excited to debut a new “Downtown Dollars” e-Gift Card program that is quick, easy-to-use, and offers a convenient way for the community to shop local and help to spur more retail recovery throughout downtown Sacramento. “Downtown Dollars” e-gift cards can be purchased in amounts as low as $25 and volume discounts are available. Currently, more than 25 businesses are participating in the new program with many more expected to join in the coming weeks.

“Downtown Dollars” can be used for dining, shopping, entertainment, professional services, and much more. Perfect as gift ideas for families and friends, employers welcoming back their staff, weddings, birthdays, graduations, corporate gifts, or special occasions (or every day shopping needs), “Downtown Dollars” lets recipients explore and spend in Downtown in their own way. “Downtown Dollars” are available for purchase now and never expire.

“After a grueling 18 months filled with a series of extraordinary challenges, we’re excited to launch a program that makes it easy for customers to support our amazingly resilient businesses,” said Michael Ault, Executive Director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. “Everyday purchasing decisions are powerful. This new program is a great way to make it easy to give the gift of Downtown and spend local.”

For those looking to contribute to the local downtown business community they love with a bigger impact, sponsorships and bulk e-Gift Card purchases are available. For more details about the new program powered Mastercard/Yiftee and/or to purchase “Downtown Dollars,” visit
