The City of Hayward has introduced a new electronic e-gift card program to support local businesses, and help residents get more for their shopping, dining, and gift-giving dollar.

Just in time for the holiday season, the new Together for Hayward e-gift cards can be purchased online here in any denomination and used at local participating businesses.  As an incentive, purchasers of a $40 e-gift card will receive a second e-gift card worth $10; purchasers of a $75 card will get an additional $20 card; and purchasers of a $100-plus card will receive an extra $30 bonus card, while City funding of the bonus-card incentive promotion lasts.

The Together for Hayward e-Gift Card Program features a growing list of over 50 local retailers, restaurants, services and entertainment—truly something for everyone.  The cards also are ideal for business bulk purchasing, and as employee rewards and incentives, customer appreciation rewards, and as holiday and welcome gifts.

The program is administered by the Hayward Economic Development Division through  To learn more, visit the Together for Hayward e-Gift Card Program page here on the City of Hayward.
