City Gift Card

Treat someone special and support
local business

You could be a business looking for ways to reward your staff. Or just a local stuck for gift ideas for friends and family. The City Gift Card is an ideal gift that allows cardholders to enjoy what Aldgate and surrounding neighbourhoods have to offer, while putting money back into the businesses that make the area so special.

What is it?

A prepaid gift card reserved for a select number of local businesses.

Where can card owners use it?

In bars, shops, barbers, hotels, gyms and so much more. And it’s not just reserved for businesses in Aldgate. We’ve created the card with neighbouring partners so card owners can spend in Cheapside, Fleet Street and the Eastern City Cluster too.

How do I buy?

It’s easy to order. Just choose an amount you want to spend, pick how many cards you’d like, and we’ll send them out to your address. You can also view a full list of places the card is accepted in.

Individual Orders

For orders over £2,000 in value, or use of corporate cards or invoice payments:

Together with our partners, we’ve created The City Gift Card to help businesses like yours thrive. There’s nothing for you to pay to feature – it’s all paid for by The BID and our partners.

It’s easy to sign up

The gift cards are a pre-loaded Mastercard, so there’s no extra hardware or software for you to install. You only need to sign our merchant participant letter and complete an online registration form.
