Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Q: What is SHOP IN GWINNETT?

SHOP IN GWINNETT is a discount card program developed to connect the Consumers, Commerce and Charities in an effort to help grow and strengthen our community. Consumers that obtain and present this card are entitled to discounts at their favorite local participating merchants for a full year. Cardholders have access to a searchable site, enabling them to look for great discounts at participating merchants county-wide from retail and service establishments to entertainment and dining venues.

Q: Who benefits from the program?

There are three primary groups that benefit from this program. Commerce – or the Gwinnett Chamber members - benefit from the increased exposure that drives new customers to their door. Local Charities are given an opportunity to raise much-needed funds that funnel back in the form of ongoing assistance to our very own community and cardholding Consumers reap the reward of exclusive discounts and promotions.

Q: How does it work?

The Cards are distributed primarily through a partnership fundraising program specifically developed for working with local non-profits that will receive a portion of the proceeds from each card sold. Consumers can order their card through the participating non-profits of their choice, or online at ShopInGwinnett.com.

The cards cost $20 and are good for one year from the date of issue to maximize the cardholder’s value-added investment.
