About 35 dining, retail shops and attractions are included in the Stillwater Savings Pass.
The savings pass is an app where businesses can promote offers like free merchandise and discounts on experiences, food and goods.
Some of these establishments like Leonard Jewelry, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum and Balanced Coffee Co. are on the savings pass. Nicole Horn, the president and CEO of Visit Stillwater, said the organization helped develop this program with a company to attract more patrons to businesses and attractions in Stillwater.
“We provide the avenue for them to get the word out about their business in terms of the savings they offer,” Horn said.
Stillwater businesses sign up and choose what they can offer on the pass. Depending on the business, incentives can be discount prices on experiences or goods and free services. However, some conditions may apply.
Horn said this pass is a great way to get businesses names out to not only Stillwater residents but also, those who are visiting.
“We have gotten a lot of positive feedback from both people who have used it and people who have participated in it,” Horn said.
Signing up for the savings pass involves three steps:
Step one: People sign up for the program on their phones.
Step two: Then individuals receive his or her pass through a text and email. There is no app to download.
Step three: People can show the pass to staff members at the business participating on the pass to use available discounts.
While this pass has been running for a little over a year, one of the places people can sign up for the pass is at visitstillwater.org.
