Burlington County Bucks Card

Where you can get them

Burlington Bucks gift cards are actually "cash'' cards that can be used at most participating businesses registered in the Directory on this website. They are used just like cash. Present Burlington Bucks toward your purchase. Merchant keeps the card. The amount on the card(s) is deducted from the purchase price. If the amount on the card(s) exceeds the purchase price, customer will receive the balance in change from the merchant. Burlington Bucks must be used toward a purchase.

There are no fees to the business for accepting Burlington Bucks. They do not swipe, do not carry a balance and they never expire. They must be redeemed at full value at time of purchase.

Burlington Bucks Gift Cards are available in $10 or $25 increments and can be used in Burlington County stores and retail establishments that are part of the County’s Shop Burlington County First initiative (Member Businesses).

Member Businesses, by agreement, must accept Burlington Bucks gift cards (see exceptions below.) Member Businesses then redeem Burlington Bucks for full value from their Local Partner or Office of Economic Development.

   Instructions for Local Partners and Member Businesses Regarding Burlington Bucks Gift Cards (and helpful information for SBCF customers):

How they can be used:

  • If a Local Partner (Business Association) "fronts" Burlington Bucks to a Member Business without payment in advance, it is done at the Local Partner's risk.
  • If Member Businesses limit the purchase amount in order for a customer to use Burlington Bucks, that amount (or percentage) MUST be clearly posted
    (Example: If a customer purchases a cup of coffee for $1 and presents a $25 Burlington Bucks gift card, the Member Business does NOT have to accept the Burlington Bucks IF CLEARLY POSTED. Suggested language: Minimum purchase $5 in order to use Burlington Bucks gift card OR Purchase price must be at least 20% the amount of the Burlington Bucks gift card amount ) 
  • Burlington Bucks can be used as change
    (Example: A customer makes a $5 purchase with $25 Burlington Bucks. Member Businesses can give a $10 gift card as part of the change IF AGREEABLE BY BOTH the customer and the business.)
  • Contact Local Partner, Burlington County Office of Economic Development at edcoordinator@bcbridges.org for purchase and redemption information
  • Local Partners and Member Businesses can use Burlington Bucks gift cards as an incentive (i.e. get a $10 gift card for a purchase of $50 or more OR $1 off any purchase when you use a Burlington Bucks gift card OR Please accept this $10 Burlington Bucks gift card for your loyal patronage)
