Gateway Discount Card Provides Savings Near Airport

May 10, 2010

Eat, sleep, play, and do business in the Gateway To Milwaukee – the area

surrounding the Airport. Now value-conscious consumers can find great deals with The Gateway Discount Card from businesses that accept it.


The Gateway Discount Card program provides opportunities for smart shoppers to save at their favorite and new restaurants, hotels, and other businesses that surround the Gateway. Businesses are providing special offers for products and services (or sometimes free give-aways) so that consumers can enjoy their preferred hangouts and try new places.


Executive Director Tom Rave stated, “The Gateway Discount Card is a win-win for consumers and businesses. The area surrounding General Mitchell International Airport has a lot to offer. The discounts attract families to businesses that are ready to prove they have what it takes to keep people coming back time and again.”


FREE cards can be obtained by going to and then clicking on “The Gateway Discount Card”. The card can be used at all participating Gateway members’ locations and is valid through December 31, 2010.


The lists of participating businesses and their available discounts can also be found on the website, and the discounts will be updated weekly. Businesses who want to participate can do so by joining The Gateway To Milwaukee, which can also be done by logging onto and then clicking “Become a Member”.



In 2005, the Airport Gateway Business Association (AGBA) was created to provide leadership in planning, promoting, and developing the vitality of The Gateway To Milwaukee – the area around the Airport. In 2006, the City of Milwaukee approved the Airport Gateway Business Improvement District #40 (AGBID) that is managed by AGBA.


Together, AGBA and AGBID operate and market The Gateway To Milwaukee to create a welcoming environment for consumers and travelers, further community relations, retain and attract businesses, support local and regional business development efforts, grow property values and liaise among other Gateway To Milwaukee stakeholders including the State, the City and the County of Milwaukee, Milwaukee 7, Visit Milwaukee, The Port of Milwaukee and, of course, General Mitchell International Airport.


The AGBID is funded by commercial property owners in the District and its Board of Directors is approved by the Mayor of the City of Milwaukee. Assessed funds are used for physical enhancements of the area, community and networking events, safety patrols, marketing activities, streetlight banners, advertising and communications with AGBA members and the community.
