What are Chamber Checks?
Chamber Checks are essentially a membership wide gift card, redeemable at any of the participating businesses listed below. Chamber checks make excellent gifts for Birthdays, Christmas, Employee gifts and bonuses or any other occasion where a gift is appropriate.
I am a business that accepts Chamber Checks. How do I receive them?
Chamber Checks should be treated just like a regular check would be accepted as payment. During the transaction, select 'check' enter the amount of the check to go towards the total amount. Then simply endorse and include the Chamber Check with your daily deposit.
What do I do with the remaining balance on a Chamber Check?
Ex. A customer with a $15 purchase pays with a $20 Chamber Check. Two options: 1.) Accept the $20 check, and pay the customer their $5 change in cash. Endorse and include check in deposit. 2.) Inform customer that they will need to spend the entire Chamber Check at your business.
DO NOT cross out the check amount and write remaining balance. This will void the check.
DO NOT give the check back to the customer. You will need to deposit the check to receive payment.

Like all great things, Chamber checks do expire. The expiration dates is always one year after the purchase date of the Chamber Check.
