City Center Partnership Bonus Gift Card Program



The program will discontinue due to all funds being exhausted at this time.  We are so pleased with the community’s response. The incentive program leveraged an additional $25,000 in spending with our City Center businesses. Thank you to everyone for supporting our local businesses! 

The City Center Partnership is introducing a new 
Bonus Gift Card Program in an effort to provide additional relief efforts for City Center businesses. The City Center Partnership is committed to enhancing City Center businesses and livability assets as an important cultural and business hub within Mankato and North Mankato. Their mission to foster investments in the City Center has never been so important.  

One way to quickly support our City Center businesses is by purchasing gift cards. For a limited time, the purchase of at least $50 in food, merchandise and/or gift cards from a participating City Center business will earn you a FREE $20 gift card of your choice to a City Center business listed below. 

The goal for the Gift Card Bonus Program is to provide an incentive for the community to support the businesses that make our community special. Show your love for our local businesses! Supporting these businesses is equivalent to supporting friends, neighbors and loved ones. 

Funds are limited for this program and therefore Bonus Gift Cards are offered on a first come, first served basis until funds are exhausted.
