Gift Card Giveback Program

Gift Card Giveback Program

Update 7/1/2020:

The Gift Card Giveback Program has closed for the second time.  Thank you for your support and for buying more gift cards!

Update 6/22/2020:

The Gift Card Giveback Program is Reopened!  You can once again receive a 25% match on love, Pittsburgh gift cards purchased through the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership's website, while funds last.  



There has been a lot in the news about the struggles of small businesses.  From businesses closing their doors, laying off employees, and funding running out for Emergency loans and the PPP program.  

Despite the hardships, there are many local Pittsburgh small businesses that are still operating.  Now, with the help of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, you can support them and get free money to spend with them!

Gift Card Giveback Program

We are proud to be a participant in the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership’s Gift Card Give Back initiative in support of small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

For every $25 you spend (up to a maximum of $100 per business) the PDP will add a bonus 25% to every Gift Card. That means for $100 – you get $125 to spend here at love, Pittsburgh!


Gift Card Bonus Values

Buy a gift card through the PDP Gift Card Giveback website to get free money to spend!  Here are the gift card options:

  • Buy a $25 gift card, get $6.25 bonus
  • Buy a $50 gift card, get $12.50 bonus
  • Buy a $75 gift card, get $18.75 bonus
  • Buy a $100 gift card, get $25 bonus

Please Note: Gift Cards must be purchased through the PDP Gift Card Give Back website to receive the 25% bonus.

When you'll get your gift card

It may take 7 business days to receive your electronic gift card.  The PDP will provide a list of the gift cards purchased to us.  We will issue electronic gift cards for the amount you purchased plus the bonus within 24 hours of receiving the order list.   

We will be working as fast as we can to make sure you have your gift card value in hand, and while you wait, you can start shopping at our online store!

Support Downtown and Strip District businesses

There are many other businesses within Downtown Pittsburgh and the Strip District who are participating.  Please consider supporting our other small business friends.

Program Funding

The Gift Card Give Back initiative is funded by $30,000 in start-up investments from the PDP and Strip District Neighbors (SDN). The 25% bonus is a limited time offer and will remain active until all funds are depleted.
