Stay & Save Program

Are you interested in servicing new ‘walk-in’ customers?

Do you enjoy engaging with visitors from outside of Nanaimo?

Do you provide an exceptional experience that would appeal to out-of-town travelers?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, we invite you to submit an offer to our Stay & Save Program. The program officially kicked off spring 2010 and to date approximately 20,000 unique visitors have been exposed to featured businesses.

How it works…

Every guest that checks into the Painted Turtle Guesthouse is invited to buy a $2.00 Souvenir Wristband, which in addition to providing an inexpensive keepsake, is their ‘proof of visitor’ status. Guests show their wristband to staff at participating Stay & Save partners as ‘proof of visitor’ status to receive the special offer related to your business.

How we promote the program…

We have promotional fliers and in-room booklets at the Painted Turtle Guesthouse encouraging guests to buy the wristband to Save while they Stay. At check-in we direct all visitors to check out the featured specials online. We have a dedicated Stay & Save feature under ‘Special Deals’ on our website (www.paintedturtle.ca/hot_deals.php) for current offerings. Offers are also used throughout our social media channels to drive new business to our partners, and to provide added value to visitors to Nanaimo & Vancouver Island.

To be approved as a Stay & Save program participant you must …

  1. Display a window sticker (refer sample photo) in a prominent location near an entrance door;

  2. Actively ensure all guests wearing the wristband are offered your incentive year-round;

  3. Ensure all YOUR staff is advised of the program and how to offer the discount/incentive to our guests;

  4. Provide an offer that is relevant to your core business, is not a complimentary value-added service you provide all patrons, would represent value to our guests, is available during all opening hours throughout the year. (Consideration may be given to seasonal or restricted hour offerings – please contact us directly to discuss options.)
