Support border businesses and get more bang for your buck with Play Money Rewards vouchers

Whoever said there's no such thing as a free lunch was probably right, but we think we've found the next best thing. Destination Gold Coast has just launched its Play Money Rewards vouchers, which are designed to stimulate the local economy while giving you a little more bang for your buck – or a free lunch, so to speak. What's the deal, you ask? Boy, we're glad you did! All you have to do is head to the Destination Gold Coast website, select your desired retailer or restaurant, and you can purchase a $100 Play Money Reward voucher for only $50! The only hard part is trying to decide where to spend your free money. Lucky for you, we're here to help ...


It’s no secret that border businesses have been hit hard this year, but the good news is that you can help just by eating, drinking and shopping! From top-notch nosheries to pamper parlours that will have you feeling like your best self, you’ll find plenty of ways to support local (and treat yourself in the process) at The Strand at Coolangatta. If, like us, you’re fond of eating and drinking (hello, friend), The Strand is your culinary oyster. Early birds can make the most of their morning at the beach before settling in for a serve of fat, fluffy stacks at Pancake Diner or a bite and a brew of the caffeinated kind at Griffith Street Larder. Those who fancy a long lunch with a view will appreciate Little Cooly for pizza and pasta, and BiN72 for cocktails and tapas, or if a casual bite and a beer is more your vibe, Beach Burrito, Top Noodle and The Cooly Hotel have you covered. Reckon you could drop $100 on just dessert? Take the challenge at Baskin Robbins and slurp your way through its delectable menu of shakes, ice-cream and sweet treats.

If a little ‘you time’ is on the cards, Endota Spa offers some seriously dreamy spa treatments, massages and beauty treatments, while Tophair and The Strand Barbers are here to tame your mane. Those who are keen to get cracking on their Christmas shopping can find the perfect gift for the whole family with an incredible array of retailers to choose from, including exquisite handmade jewellery from Salt Water Silver, dreamy linen wares from Salt Living and beach essentials from Beach N Beyond. Boutiques Olive and Vern and Sabah Lifestyle Coolangatta can kit you out for the silly season, Concrete Lines boasts the best range of skating gear on the coast, and Sandy Crab Toy Store has more toys than Santa! Birch Carroll & Coyle is also on the list of participating stores, so you can wild out and upsize that popcorn. Vouchers are limited, so if you’re keen to get your mitts on one, you’d better hop to it!

Still looking for more? If you spend $25 or more at The Strand at Coolangatta, you can redeem your free ticket to a No Time to Die James Bond exclusive viewing, or a Paint, Sip & Style session. Jump over here for the details or skip over here to view the full list of participating retailers.
