Sugar Land Rolls Out ‘Tis the Season for Sweet Cash Holiday Shopping Incentives

Tis the Season

‘Tis the Season for Sweet Cash launched November 11th for Sugar Land’s holiday shopping season, bringing back the popular program with a festive twist and simplified features to continue supporting local businesses and frontline workers who have been impacted by COVID-19.

The program will continue the #AllInForSLTX campaign, designed to leverage public and private dollars and drive at least $200,000 into Sugar Land’s economy. To date, the program has generated more than $160,000 in gift card purchases and distributed more than 2,600 gift cards.

The seasonal program features a “Buy One, Get One” offer, inviting shoppers to buy a gift card of at least $20 from any Sugar Land business. In return, they will receive a gift card – valued at the closest $20 increment equal to or less than the original purchase – from another local business. For example if a shopper buys a gift card for $35, they will receive a $20 gift card in return, but if they buy a gift card for $40, they will receive two $20 gift cards in return, as gift cards are given in $20 increments. As part of the updated program, Sugar Land will also donate 500 gift cards worth $10,000 to local frontline workers.

“The award-winning Sweet Cash Program has done an incredible job supporting Sugar Land businesses and frontline workers through the help of our residents and Houston-area shoppers,” said Mayor Joe R. Zimmerman about the initial launch of Sweet Cash. “People want to help any way they can, and this program is a simple, effective and safe way to do so. With the holidays approaching, ‘Tis the Season for Sweet Cash offers a fantastic opportunity for local shoppers to purchase gift cards for family, friends, teachers and more for the giving season while supporting their hometown businesses.”

To participate in ‘Tis the Season for Sweet Cash, shoppers can buy gift cards between $20 and $200 in value from any Sugar Land business through in-store purchases, drive-through or curbside pickup. They must then submit the gift card purchase receipt at Once submitted, shoppers will get a gift card from another Sugar Land business like Guru Burgers and Crepes, Aling’s Chinese Bistro or Keeper’s Japanese Restaurant and Bar in $20 increments equal to or less than the original purchase. The cards will be sent in the mail or may be picked up at Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd. North. The city of Sugar Land will also give 500 gift cards to local frontline workers at the conclusion of the program.
