• Shop Local and Win!

  • This holiday season, we recognize that it's more important than ever to continue supporting our local businesses. Instead of turning to online shopping, we encourage you to keep money in our community and our businesses thriving by shopping local. Our Holiday Gift Guide has great ideas for everyone on your list!

    We have two ways you can win big for supporting local this holiday season: send in your receipts from local holiday shopping for a chance to get reimbursed for your purchase, and snap a selfie while you're out shopping to win weekly giveaways! Details on both opportunities are below. The best part? Both contests allow unlimited entries, meaning the more you support local, the better chance you have to win!

  • Shop on Us! Local Holiday Receipt Campaign

  • Get cash back for doing your holiday shopping locally! Shop at any local Santa Maria Valley business this holiday season (or Santa Maria Chamber Member business) and submit your receipts for your chance to be reimbursed up to $200! We'll be giving away a total of up to $2,000 to up to 20 lucky winners!

    • $50 minimum spend at local businesses required to qualify for entry. (Can be a $50 cumulative total from multiple businesses, in which case please send all receipts at one time.)
    • All receipts must be received by December 21st. Receipts must be dated between November 28th – December 21st and from businesses in the Santa Maria Valley.
    • Winners will be drawn the week of December 21st on Facebook live and winners will be notified via phone, email or text.

  • 3 easy ways to enter:

    1. Text a photo of your receipt to us. Text CHAMBER to 33222. Then, text us your receipt photos with your full name.
    2. Send your receipts via email to register@santamaria.com. Include your full name and phone number so we can notify you if you win.
    3. Send your receipts via mail to: Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce, 614 S. Broadway, Santa Maria, CA 93454. Include your full name and phone number so we can notify you if you win.

    The more businesses you support by shopping local, the more chances you have to win! Questions? Contact Molly Schiff, Marketing & Communications Manager, at molly@santamaria.com.
