Hutch Bucks Being Phased Out 11 Feb 15

The Hutchinson Chamber would like to remind everyone Hutch Bucks are retiring, and the last day to use them as currency is Saturday, February 28, 2015.

Chamber President Mary Hodson says the retirement has come in phases throughout the past year, with several notifications to businesses and the general public.

Three reasons are cited for the retirement of Hutch Bucks. Years of declining use, and fewer businesses using them due to IRS regulation changes. Check processing programs at the point of sale have rejected Hutch Bucks when entering errors have been made. And finally, with the digital age, fewer businesses accept checks, and so, as Hutch Bucks were legally tendered checks, they too were not accepted under check acceptance policies.

Any questions regarding the Hutch Bucks program can be directed to the Chamber 320-587-5252.
