(WSYR-TV) — “Blizzard Bucks” are coming back to Oswego with the coupon program going on sale Thursday, December 2.
The program incentivizes residents to shop locally during the holiday season. The buy one, get one program offers deals and discounts with the purchase of a $25 coupon, customers will receive $50 in “Blizzard Bucks” to spend at local stores and restaurants.
“Launching another round of our ‘Buy One Get One’ Blizzard Bucks promotional program ahead of the holiday shopping season will encourage residents to stay and shop local, providing a great boost to our local merchants and restaurants,” said Mayor Billy Barlow. “Our ‘Buy One Get One’ promotional program has been a big help to small businesses and the local economy throughout the pandemic so I’m excited to host another round as we head into the shopping season.”
