“You Stay, We Pay” Promotion Running Now Through June 30

KIRKLAND, Wash. – The City of Kirkland announces the launch of a new community currency program called “Kirkland Ca$h.” Kirkland Ca$h is a dollar-for-dollar certificate program aimed at promoting tourism and supporting the local economy by assisting locally owned businesses and providing an incentive for visitors to stay and play in Kirkland.

“The Kirkland Ca$h program provides needed stimulus to our hard-hit hospitality industry and small business economy,” said Mayor Penny Sweet.  “Throughout the pandemic, the Kirkland community has pulled together time and again to support each other, and the launch of Kirkland Ca$h is the latest example of economic innovation and resilience. It’s a win-win for Kirkland, businesses, and visitors.”

During the “You Stay, We Pay” promotion running now through June 30, 2022, guests who book a two-night stay at participating hotels will receive $100 in Kirkland Ca$h to spend as they like at participating businesses, including restaurants, retail stores, and services.  Hotel stays must take place between April 1and June 30, 2022. Kirkland Ca$h certificates that are distributed as part of the 2022 “You Stay, We Pay” promotion have an expiration date of August 31, 2022.

Visitors can book at the following Kirkland locations: The Heathman Hotel, The Woodmark Hotel, Courtyard by Marriott Seattle-Kirkland, and Motel 6. Guests must book a minimum two-night stay at any participating hotel directly through the links provided on the website to receive $100 in Kirkland Ca$h at no additional cost. Upon check-in at the hotel, the Kirkland Ca$h certificate will be issued to the guest in digital form and print form if desired. Consumers bearing Kirkland Ca$h need only to present the certificates to participating businesses as if they are cash at the time of purchase. The certificate code will be easily redeemed by the Kirkland business.

The list of participating businesses is ever-growing and includes restaurants, retail outlets, services, spas, salons, activities, attractions and more. The complete list will be updated regularly and can be found on the Kirkland Ca$h webpage.
