There are a lot of great things about living in Australia’s national capital and now you can ‘free cash’ to the list.
The local government is offering vouchers of up to $40 a day under a new scheme to boost the local economy.
ChooseCBR will run until December 21 with $500,000 worth of discount vouchers available.
A similar scheme is underway in NSW.
As part of its plan to stimulate the economy after the impact of the COVID pandemic, the NSW government launched the Dine and Discover scheme, which sees every adult in the state will receive a $100 voucher to encourage people to support the hospitality, entertainment and tourism industries.
The 60,000 people living in Sydney’s CBD with the postcode 2000 will be the first to receive their $100 vouchers.
This is the first stage of the scheme before it is expected that it expands into the entire state in January.
The Dine and Discover scheme – which was originally announced as the Out and About scheme – will split the $100 incentive into four $25 vouchers that will be able to be used at COVID-Safe businesses.
