A Recipient Visits Houston: An Inspiring Narrative 📓 

Once upon a time, a person named Jamie received an "Indie Houston Prepaid Gift Card" as a gift. Jamie had always wanted to visit Houston, and this was the perfect opportunity to enjoy the city while supporting its local businesses.

Upon arrival in Houston, the first place Jamie visited was Brazos Bookstore. As an avid reader, Jamie was delighted by the wide variety of books on offer, spending minutes and even hours browsing. They picked up a few novels by local authors, eager to immerse themselves in the city’s literary scene.

Next, Jamie visited Cactus Music, Houston's oldest independent music store. Being a music enthusiast, they spent time flipping through the extensive collection of vinyl records and CDs. They ended up purchasing a few records of local Houston bands, a perfect memento of their trip.

By this point, Jamie was hungry, and remembering their prepaid gift card, they searched for a local food spot. They decided to visit Phoenicia Specialty Foods. This family-owned market offered gourmet foods from around the world. Jamie relished the global flavors, sampling various cuisines and buying a selection of unique snacks to enjoy later.

The following day, Jamie began at The Chocolate Bar. This locally-owned shop was a paradise for any chocolate lover, and Jamie was no exception. They indulged in a variety of chocolates and candies, appreciating the sweet start to their day. Jamie decided to send a few of their favorite chocolates to a friend back home, wanting to share the delicious experience.

Later, Jamie decided to explore the city's unique art scene. They visited The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, a unique art space dedicated to promoting self-taught art. The center's unique approach to art left Jamie inspired and fascinated. They wrote a glowing review about the center online, recommending it to other people.

Over the next few days, Jamie continued exploring the city, visiting places like The Raven Grill for a taste of homely comfort food. They even made a stop at the quirky Hobbit Cafe, delighting in the Tolkien-themed surroundings and delicious food. After reading excellent reviews, Jamie decided to buy tickets to a play at The Alley Theatre, a world-renowned theatre company.

Finally, Jamie ended their trip by visiting Space Montrose, a boutique featuring Texas-based artists and artisans. They picked up some unique, handmade souvenirs to remember their trip by. Before leaving, they took a moment to contact the store's owner with questions about a particular artist.

Impressed by their response, Jamie decided to contact a friend, sharing the store's contact information so they too could enjoy the unique offerings of Space Montrose.

In the end, the "Indie Houston Prepaid Gift Card" made Jamie's visit to Houston a unique and local experience, allowing them to explore and appreciate the city in a whole new way. It was more than just a gift card; it was a passport to the heart of Houston.

Frequently Asked Questions 🙋

How do I check my balance?
For plastic cards, enter your Card Code into this form to see the balance available. For e-Gifts, open the email you received and click the "open gift" button.
Where can I use my card?
You can spend your card at any independent business in Houston.
Why is a business not familiar with the card?
Sometimes businesses or new cashiers may not be familiar with our program and think they can not accept the card. The Indie Houston Prepaid Gift Card is a prepaid Mastercard and even if they have never heard of the program the business should still be able to accept the card by charging it the same way they would any other Mastercard.
Can I use my card for food delivery apps?
Unfortunately, no. Food delivery apps like Doordash and Uber Eats are nationwide technology companies. Whenever you place an order through their service you pass money to them and they keep a large percentage of your order -- sometimes up to 35% or more -- and pay the rest to the local business. This ultimately hurts local businesses which is why we strongly encourage ordering with a local business directly.
How soon does my card work?
You can spend your card immediately.
Does the balance expire?
Gift funds never expire and are charged a monthly fee of 5% after 1 year of inactivity.
What if I lose my card?
Oh no! If you lose your plastic card we can issue you a new card to access your funds for $5. If you lose your e-Gift card we can re-issue you a replacement at no additional charge.
What do you mean by chains?
Our current parameters for a chain store are if a business has 10 or more locations. For example, if a store has locations in several states that is usually a good indicator that they are a chain.
