St Albans Gift Card
We were delighted to announce the launch of a St Albans Gift Card on 12th November 2018. The launch of the specific BID-area card helps to lock in money for local businesses. Our programme uses the existing Mastercard network making it very straightforward to set up and easy to run. It also means that both nationals and independents can be involved.
The card can be spent anywhere so it’s not just for objects: it could be used for coffees or cocktails, dinner or dinner jackets, solicitors or slippers… whatever you sell, you should be able to accept the card: and the more people that accept the card, the more popular the card will be, locking more and more income into bricks and mortar stores in our City.
The Gift Card makes a great present for teenagers, work colleagues, friends and loved ones. Also, as a fantastic wedding gift or corporate reward and it’s simply perfect for anyone who is hard to buy for.
For more information please visit the website.

How St Albans Gift Card Works
Discover the best of St Albans with one handy gift card that takes the decision out of gifting, but keeps options open for the recipient and the local economy growing for its community.
The St Albans Gift Card caters for coffee lovers and vintage fashionistas, culture seekers and music fans and anyone else you can think of! The St Albans Gift Card is a Mastercard-based card that works in the same way as store gift cards but can be used across the whole City Centre in local and national businesses across a range of sectors. This St Albans BID initiative is a great gift for any occasion and can also be used as an employee incentive or Christmas/Leaving/Retirement present. It’s easy to use and ensures your money is spent locally.
Simply choose your card amount. Buy your St Albans Gift Card from the dedicated website at www.stalbansgiftcard.co.uk. Give it to friends, family members or colleagues or even keep it for yourself! Recipients can then spend the card at over 80 businesses in the city centre of St Albans.
The range of businesses that have signed up to the scheme includes independents as well as nationals, with fashion, food, drink, beauty, and gifts all covered, making it the most flexible, and locally sustainable present around!
