SHIP BOTTOM – The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce members have been serving the Long Beach Island region since the summer of 1914.

Over that time there has been many challenges that the businesses have worked to overcome. In response to concerns on rising prices this year, the regional chamber has worked with stakeholders to introduce a free, mobile-exclusive savings passport to for residents and visitors.

This pass shows the importance that small business has in the community with the hopes to introduce their offerings customers and encourage visitors to stay longer. This pass is similar to a free coupon book with the major difference being that it is delivered via text and email to passholders phones as part of the popular Eat, Drink & Buy LBI region campaign.

  Whether the passholder is no tech, low tech, or high tech; all that is needed to redeem any offers is simply present the pass on their phone. With the successes of the Holiday Savings Pass and ChowderTrail, consumers interested will register for free and receive a link that can be saved to the home screen of their phone. 


Participating businesses will be updated on the pass offering coupons, giveaways or discount to passholders. There will also be options highlighting free attractions, military discounts and off-season savings.

The pass is set to launch May 1, updates and registrations for the pass will be available on the Eat Drink & Buy LBI Region Page on
