    • They can only be used on goods and services at Yankton businesses.


    • They cannot be deposited into bank accounts or cashed.


    • Customers need to use at least 75% of the Chamber Dollar check amount for change to be given.


    • Chamber Dollars expire after 90 days. In order to keep funds circulating with this program and the account that backs these checks balanced, Chamber Dollars need to be used in a timely manner. If you have expired Chamber Dollars, contact the Yankton Chamber office to see if there are any options for re-issuing the checks.


    • Businesses: Treat Chamber Dollar checks as you would any other check, by endorsing the back, putting it on a deposit slip as "Yankton Chamber Dollar", and submitting to your financial institution. All local banks are aware of this program.
