Downtown Evanston Gift Card

Downtown Evanston Gift Card
Downtown Evanston stopped selling gift cards in November 2016. We apologize for the inconvenience but there are several businesses that offer gift certificates and cards! Actually, most all shops and restaurants do in downtown Evanston. 

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

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. Please use the link below to check your balance. 

Check here to check your gift card balance.
