Students can shop, win big, and support their community businesses with Downtown Kingston! Student Shopping Passport! Read more about our promotion/coupon opportunities available below!

 How does it work:

  • Downtown Kingston! Student Shopping Passport is starting September 1st to help encourage Kingston's post-secondary students to support and spend downtown!

  • Any student who is shopping downtown can pick up a passport at participating businesses or and start collecting stickers earned through purchases of $10 or more. 

  • With big prizes to be won and fun to be had, students will submit their sticker-filled passports to participating businesses. 

    • A full passport with 5 collectible stickers will be entered into weekly draws for $100 gift card prizes from September 1st to October 17th. That’s 7 weeks of $100 prizes only to be spent at participating businesses!

    • Every completed passport will be entered into our Grand Prize Draw for $500 in downtown gift cards to be drawn on October 18th.  

    • Students who don’t collect all 5 stickers can still submit their passports and join the fun with our bonus draw for a special prize!

How can I help?

We're looking for volunteers to act as Checkpoint Stores for the duration of the program to help streamline the refill and collection process. It's super easy, all you have to do is:

  • Keep a healthy stock of passports and stickers at your business so your neighbours can pop by for a refill 

  • Act as a drop off location for participating businesses to hand off their submitted passports and keep them safe until we can stop by
