Estherville Bucks

As we enter into the new year it's important to remind everyone about how Estherville Bucks work. From the retailer/service side each Estherville Buck given to you is a cash backed check. We make the Bucks in small increments to encourage spending them fully but if you receive an Estherville Buck that is greater than the amount of purchase you need to give cash back. You can deposit the Estherville Buck like any other check that you receive. Pease let us know if you have any questions about Estherville Bucks. Thousands of dollars worth were sold during the Holiday season so we anticipate some spending this winter!
