Discount cards offer more than $2,000 in savings
It’s that time of year again. Time to support your local Humboldt/Dakota City businesses by purchasing an I Love Humboldt/Dakota City Chamber Discount Card. The Chamber will be returning to the card format this year.
The cards feature specials from more than 35 local participating businesses. The cards sell for $20 each and feature more than $2,000 worth of discounts from the participating merchants.
“One hundred percent of the proceeds go back into Humboldt/Dakota City Chamber-supported events,” Chamber Vice President Amy Nostrom reports.
Those events include the annual 4th of July parade and fireworks celebration, the Holiday Lighted Parade that will be coming up on Nov. 17, the annual Downtown Sounds events, Youth Halloween Party, Golden Egg Hunt and other Chamber-sponsored activities and events.
“Businesses who purchase 10 or more cards for employees or customers will receive a special $5 discount off each card. Those cards will be $15 each,” Nostrom said.
Specials on the cards are good from Nov. 1, 2012 to Nov. 30, 2013.
There are many ways to obtain a card. Chamber board members will be calling the community the weeks of Oct. 29 and Nov. 5. They will be selling and delivering cards on those nights.
People may also contact Chamber Director Susan Rutz at 332-1481, or Amy Nostrom at Bank Iowa at 332-1451.
Chamber representatives will also be set up at Fareway and Hy-Vee from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, to sell the discount cards.
Buying a discount card is an excellent way to show you love the Humboldt/Dakota City community, and to show support for the local business.
