Onondaga County restaurant gift card voucher program sold out

Local News

LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Just hours after Onondaga County opened its gift card match program on Tuesday, the vouchers were sold out.

Here’s how it works: Customers buy a gift card from the participating restaurant of their choice for $25, $50, $75 or $100, but get double the value if they bring with them a voucher registered through Onondaga County’s website when they make the gift card purchase.

People have until May 10 to redeem those vouchers. Any that have not been claimed, will become available again.

The Onondaga County Executive has pledged $500,000 to go toward the program. Combining the $500,000 from customers with the county’s $500,000 match, $1,000,000 will be injected into the cash flow of local restaurants, a part of the economy still struggling from the effects of the pandemic.

County Executive Ryan McMahon says if this program goes well, the county will consider expanding it in the future.
