Montrose Bucks Program

Montrose Bucks CardWhat is the Montrose Bucks program all about?

Montrose Bucks are a local tradition coordinated by the Office of Business and Tourism to provide extra incentives for the community to shop locally and support local merchants. Bucks can be given as gifts, rewards, and incentives by individuals and businesses alike - year-round. 

We’re excited to roll out big improvements to the locally-loved Montrose Bucks program!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • It’s year-round! Although we’ll still be doing the holiday ’Bucks’ promotion, this is a gift card program to support local shops, restaurants, and businesses year-round.
  • No more paper bucks! The new Montrose Bucks gift cards are the same size, shape, and weight as a standard debit/credit card, and function as any other gift card.
  • No more expiration dates! Funds do not expire with the new program.
  • New Design! The graphic above depicts the card design. 

Special Montrose BUCKS  Holiday Promotion

The Montrose Bucks Promotion is BACK! Beginning on Small Business Saturday, November 27, we have a Montrose Bucks gift for you. For every $50 worth of Montrose Bucks purchased, get an additional $10. There is a purchase limit of $400 per household (which adds up to $480 in Montrose Bucks)! Grab your bucks and head out to your favorite local businesses and show your support for all that they do.

Purchase your Montrose Bucks, while supplies last, at the Montrose Visitor Center, Monday - Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Please note: The special holiday Montrose Bucks promotion is for in-person, cash sales only. To help us prevent fraud, purchasers must present a photo ID at the time of purchase.
