Gift Card Tips

The Iowa City Downtown Gift Card good at 165 plus merchants in Downtown Iowa City

Use it or Lose it!

Don’t stick the card in a drawer and forget it. Use it at least once every 12 months to avoid a $3.00 monthly fee that will reduce its value! Better yet, spend the whole thing now! We will not replace funds or cards that have not been used.


At restaurants, use cash or a credit card for tips. Use the Gift Card to pay for purchases only.

Know Your Card Balance

If your card is declined, it may mean the purchase is more than its balance. Getting balance information is posted on the back of your card. Call 1-800-755-0085 or visit Then run it again for an amount equal to or less than the balance.
