Beach Bucks

Beach Bucks….Same as Cash?

Several years ago, the Beach Chamber in cooperation with the Farmers & Merchants Bank formed “Beach Bucks”.  The purpose of Beach Bucks was to encourage shopping in Beach and Golva.  Over the years, Beach Bucks have continued to encourage shopping locally throughout Golden Valley County.

Beach Bucks are considered cash…
because valid “bucks” are guaranteed by the Chamber.  "Any Golden Valley County business can accept Beach Bucks in exchange for services, merchandise or purchases."

Beach Bucks are a check. Businesses accept Beach Bucks as they would any other check and the presenter endorses the back.  After a purchase, businesses have the choice of giving store credit for the remainder of the check total or if two thirds or more of the check total is used to give back the change.
Beach Bucks can be used at local banks.  They cannot be cashed.  However, they can be deposited in checking, savings or other types of bank accounts.

Beach Bucks are time-dated.
To keep the bank account current and stable, Beach Bucks are invalid after 60 days.  Businesses are asked to watch dates closely.

How does one get Beach Bucks?
Simply contact the Chamber office to purchase Beach Bucks in the dollar amount needed.  Two authorizing signatures are required on Beach Bucks checks, therefore planning ahead is strongly suggested.

Beach Bucks make great gift ideas!
