Called Chamber they said they only got order's with code's in 4000's thus far, so have to wait 7 days before using them. Good thing I called before heading DT.
I bought one for Wallys as well, thanks for mentioning them, peaked my interest. I agree about the odd tracking system

Any other good local spots on the list other then Wallys? Any recommendations at all?

I haven't tried their espresso beans, only their filter beans since I only Aeropress or make pourovers. Specifically, I tried their light roast Roasters Choice (currently an Ethiopian Guji) and their medium roast Peru. I really enjoyed both, but I do prefer bright lighter roasts. I've seen on the interwebz some people disappointed with how light and "sour" their beans were, but that's probably just people not accustomed to lighter roasts. Ethiopian beans are my fave and Agro's are just as good as other single origins I've bought that were more expensive (e.g. JJBean, Matchstick, 49 Parallel, Phil & Sebastian, etc.)

Thanks OP (and @kooltilltheen for mentioning Rain City Games), just picked up a game from them, paying about 23% less compared to my usual place. (Also saved me from buying extra in order to get free shipping, and waiting for shipment.)

For those looking for a game, here's the list of games that works out to around 20% off for me. There are probably more, but these are the ones that interested me. Hope you find something too and help a local business in the process. If you wanted to use the $50 in one go, buy at least $44.64. As mentioned by others in earlier posts, it really depends on which game and where you usually buy it from (whether it's another FLGS, or online). Under each game is the BGG link with more info about it (images, reviews, videos, etc.)

Arkham Horror: The Dunwinch Legacy (expansion, requires base game to play) $44.99
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/208 ... -expansion

Arkham Horror: The Card Game (base game) $54.99
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/205 ... r-card-gam
- This one is a little shy of 20% off, but paying $37 after tax is still a good price IMHO.

Chronicles of Crime $44.99
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/239 ... cles-crime

Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion $59.99
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/291 ... -jaws-lion

Undaunted: Normandy $54.99
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/268 ... d-normandy

I also thought about pairing up $20 and $25 games:
Exit: The Abandoned Cabin $19.99
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/203 ... oned-cabin
- Or any other in the series which has the same price

Kingdomino $24.99

After I bought the gift cert on Support Local BC, I got an email from Rain City Games in a few hours. You can reply to their email to use it online (and pick up in store).
Please respect the store's covid guidelines. The way they write it up is a fun read for gaming fans Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes
