Chamber Checks

With the holiday season approaching, a great way to keep your dollars local is with Chamber Checks!  Spendable at over 150 Chamber businesses, Chamber Checks make wonderful gifts and employee incentives.  These gift certificates are easy to use, just like checks.

Businesses, if you receive Chamber Checks, accept them like a normal check and deposit them with your daily deposits.  Please remember to educate your staff on how to accept Chamber Checks.  If you have questions, please call the Chamber Office for details.

Chamber Checks are spent exclusively with Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce merchants adding to the local economy.
