Keep in mind that the item or items on your receipt has to be at least $25 in total and those items need to be purchased from members of the Clinton Chamber to be entered, but you can enter multiple times each week with different receipts. Each week, those receipts will be entered into a drawing to win $25 in Chamber gift certificates. We will give our prize away each Monday beginning Nov. 6th. To be entered to win each Monday, you must bring at least one receipt to the Chamber that previous week. All qualifying receipts will be eligible for our grand prize giveaway.
NEW THIS YEAR: WHOEVER BRINGS IN THE MOST RECEIPTS FROM MULTIPLE CHAMBER BUSINESSES WILL GET 10 EXTRA ENTRIES INTO THE GRAND PRIZE DRAWING!
