How does it work?

Locally owned retailers will be participating in a two-week campaign (November 27 - December 12) to encourage shopping small this holiday season. Starting on Shop Small Saturday, shoppers can pick up a ‘Holiday Hoopla Scratch Off’ where they will receive either a discount, prize from a participating business, or a bit of Dubuque trivia – it all depends on their luck of the draw. Once the card has been used at the location it was received, participants can turn it in for a chance to win a $100 gift card, available for each of the participating businesses.

Get a Scratch Off & Holiday Guide

Shoppers can pick up a new scratch off card and Dubuque Holiday Guide from all participating businesses between November 27 and December 12. This holiday guide will list each of the Holiday Hoopla retailers as well as things to explore this holiday season.

Scratch off the Card

Shoppers will reveal one of three possibilities on their card - a discount redeemable at that retailer, a prize from that retailer, or a fun fact about Dubuque County. Discounts and prizes must be redeemed at the time of scratch-off to be valid.

Turn in the Card

Shoppers can turn in their used cards (including fun fact cards) by filling out their information and turning them in for a chance to win a $100 gift card from that retailer. Drawings will be done by Travel Dubuque and take place during the week of December 13, 2021.
