The City of Kirkland has announced that it is bringing back its community currency program, “Kirkland Ca$h,” for the holiday season. 

Kirkland Ca$h is a dollar-for-dollar certificate program aimed at promoting tourism and supporting the local economy by providing an incentive for visitors while assisting locally owned businesses, a release said.

The “Stay and Play” promotion runs now through Feb. 28. Guests who book a stay at participating hotels through designated links on the hotel websites will receive up to $100 in Kirkland Ca$h to spend at participating businesses, including restaurants, retail stores, and services. Hotel guests who do not book through the designated booking links will also have a chance to receive a $25 certificate by signing up for the City’s Events Guide newsletter. Hotel stays must take place by Feb. 28. Kirkland Ca$h certificates distributed as part of the “Stay and Play” promotion have an expiration date of June 30.

Upon check-in at the hotel, the Kirkland Ca$h certificate will be issued to the guest in digital form and print form, if desired. Consumers with Kirkland Ca$h need only to present the certificates to participating businesses as if they are cash at the time of purchase.
