Summer Savings Passport 2024

The Summer Savings Passport is back for 2024! Get yours today! Booklets are on sale for $10 and contain deals for 16 neighborhood businesses. You can buy them at the list of participating business below. 

Formerly the Shop Longfellow BOGO Passport, this passport contains deals from a variety of local businesses  – restaurants, retail shops, and more. The passport encourages patrons to support small businesses in the Greater Longfellow and Seward neighborhoods while saving money.  The Passport has a positive impact on the local economy, helps businesses expand and maintain their customer base, and promotes the business associations of the two neighborhoods. 

This year, we partnered with the Seward Civic & Commerce Association to expand the scope of neighborhood savings and participation. Thanks to the City of Minneapolis Business District Support Grant for making this passport possible. 

Stay tuned for information on pop-up events!

Started in 2022 as a punchcard, the BOGO passport is an annual project that was made possible in 2023 thanks to a BDS grant from the City of Minneapolis. Email for inquiries or information.
