Downtown Evanston Gift Card

Downtown Evanston Gift Card
Downtown Evanston no longer sells gift cards for the downtown Evanston business district. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are in the process of setting up a new gift card program that will be more user-friendly for customers and businesses.

If you have received or purchased a Downtown Evanston gift card, please note there are no changes to the value of the gift card and/or where you can use it. We have only discontinued selling new gift cards, but the gift cards can still be used. 

However, as a reminder, although the gift cards do not expire, after one year of inactivity (from purchase date), $2.50 is deducted from the total each month. Below are two helpful links and please contact 847-866-6319 if you have any questions. 

Check here to check your gift card balance.

Below is an updated list of businesses that accept the Downtown Evanston gift card. Please use this list instead of the original list that you received with the gift card as some businesses no longer accept the cards or have closed.
