Gift Card Program

Amherst Area Gift Card Program

Welcome and thank you for supporting local!

Experience the Amherst area and support local with the Amherst Area Gift Card. Get a taste of our local ingredients and global flavor, do a little retail therapy, or spend hours exploring our bookstores and museums. Anything is possible with the Amherst Area Gift Card.

These are perfect as gifts for local Amherst Area students, family and friends and make a great local investment. They are even reloadable.

The ideal gift for birthdays, anniversaries, and more! 

Already have a gift card, and want to check your balance?

Gift cards can be purchased or reloaded at:

If you would like to place a bulk order for your team or clients, please contact giftcards. Remember there is $1 charge per card and if you are purchasing them as gifts — because they make a great local investment — there is an additional $1 fee if you would like us to mail them directly. They will be mailed with a lovely sleeve and note.

Holiday Gift Card Match Flyer (1)

Holiday Gift Card Match

Beginning on Friday, December 3 (not before), the community will be able to purchase $25 gift cards (with an additional $1 processing fee) that will be doubled in value due to this generous match. There is a limit of two per person. The match is only available on $25 gift cards purchased. Thus, for your $26 purchase, you will receive a $50 gift card. The match will be sold exclusively at our Visitor Information Center at 35 S. Pleasant St. That will translate into a $12,000 reinvestment in our small business community. Office hours M – F, 10am to 5pm and Saturdays 10:30 to 2pm.

BONUS – The Amherst BID is hosting the return of the Red Ticket event and for every $25 gift card purchased while the match lasts, you will receive TWO red tickets toward the Red Ticket drawing and put you in the running for one of four cash prizes of $250 or one for $1,000, on Saturday, December 18 at 3pm at Kendrick Park. Find us on the Muddy Brook Farm sled!
