Lake Forest is offering an amazing deal where you can purchase gift cards from the Shop & Dine program, and they will match the purchase value.
Basically, they are giving you free money!!
Baker Ranch Animal is participating as one of the Lake Forest businesses that can accept the cards for payment.
There are some limitations -
You can purchase up to $200 value gift card per person and they will match with the same value purchased.
The "free" cards must be used within 6 months from purchase, the original paid value does not expire.
You can use it as partial payment for services but the website link will show you your current balance.
You get a digital code sent by email (card number, CVC and Expiration) - which works like a Mastercard at any of the participating businesses (you don't receive an actual card)
We have had many clients that have used their gift card to pay for annual wellness plans, or a year's supply of parasite prevention like Nexgard and Heartgard. Also you could pay for your pet's annual wellness visit and vaccines with the card (basically saving you 50% !!!)
But where does the "free money" come from? - the federal government gave larger cities a pot of money to disperse to residents to encourage spending in their local community following the economic crash caused by Covid-19 shut down. Primarily the hardship was felt by the restaurant and hospitality industries, but many small businesses were affected negatively.
