Keep It Local Weekend is a two-day shopping event designed to encourage people to support Oklahoma’s unique locally-owned businesses! Anyone who visits a participating location on Friday, January 20th or Saturday, January 21st will be eligible to enter a drawing to win $1,000 in local gift cards. (That’s a lot of zeros!) Shoppers may enter the drawing at as many locations as they like. Winner announced the week of January 22-28.
No purchase necessary to enter or win…but it sure would be nice if you did!

The 5th Saturday of the month is Military Appreciation Day at Green Bambino
Thank you for your service! As a small token of our appreciation, save 15% off your purchase.
Every 5th Saturday of the month, members of the military and their families are rewarded at Green Bambino. Shop the 5th Saturday with your Green Bambino reusable shopping bag and your current military ID and you’ll get a 15% discount off anything you can fit in the shopping bag!
If you don’t have a Green Bambino reusable shopping bag, they are available for $3 each or free if you show a Keep It Local card or have a green rewards card (ask us for details about our loyalty rewards program).
You’ll earn rewards on your discounted purchase. You must have a current, non-expired military ID to get the discount. Discounts don’t combine, but we’ll give you the better of whatever discount, clearance or sale price is available. 5th Saturdays through the end of 2014:
Saturday, May 31
Saturday, August 30
Saturday, November 29 (just in time for holiday shopping!)
Driving in from outside Oklahoma City? Make a day of it! There are tons of great restaurants up and down Western Avenue near our store, and the Oklahoma City Zoo, Science Museum Oklahoma and more adventures aren’t far away!
We mentioned on Facebook recently that we are revamping our rewards program. It’s still fast, it’s still easy, but most importantly, it gets you more money back in your pocket.
It’s called the 6-box program, because you can see the card has 6 boxes. Each time you shop with us, we fill in a box with the date and your total purchase (before sales tax). Fill up six boxes over six purchases, then we’ll add up the grand total and give you 10% of that total back to spend as cash.
For instance: if, over six purchases, you spend $200, we’ll give you $20 to spend as cash. If you spend $500 over six purchases, we’ll give you $50 back. That’s twice as much back as our previous rewards program.
For those of you who do have existing rewards from our previous rewards program, don’t worry, you won’t lose them. Those rewards did have a 90-day expiration date, and that still applies. But our system will keep reminding us that you have those old rewards until their expiration date. Our new rewards have no expiration date.
Going forward, we’ll use the 6-box program. It’s a lot of fun – when you come into the store, grab your card and see how close you are to rewards. Do your shopping, and when you are ready to check out, hand the card to a Green Bambino staff member and we’ll take care of the rest. The card stays at the store so you don’t have to keep up with anything!
If you have any questions about our new rewards program, give us a call at 405-848-2330 or ask us next time you visit. We think you’ll really like earning more rewards with the new 6-box system!
The brand new Oklahoma City coloring book comes to us from the creators of the Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar. At just $10, this might be the perfect stocking stuffer for all the OKC lovers on your holiday shopping list!
Chesapeake brings holiday entertainment back to Oklahoma City
and helps give warmth to those in need.

Snow hill • Play area • Photos with Santa
Giveaways • Holiday lights drive-thru • Live music/entertainment
Special appearances by mascots from:
Oklahoma City Ballet • Oklahoma City RedHawks
Oklahoma City Barons • Oklahoma City University
Donate a gently used coat or winter accessory (e.g., hat, gloves, scarf) at one of five drop-off locations along Western Avenue and receive a discount shopping pass valid Thursday, December 6, through Saturday, December 8, for 20% off a one-time purchase at participating Western Avenue retailers (including Green Bambino).
This Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, Green Bambino will join vendors from around the metro at the Oh Baby expo on the main Chesapeake campus. At this event, Chesapeake employees and their families will hear expert speakers, visit various booths, and will participate in hands-on-activities to gain valuable information related to the health and well-being of their babies (even if they’re not expecting yet).
One reason we are so excited to participate is that we are a Chesapeake family too! Mr. Green Bambino himself, a.k.a., Graham from the IT department has worked at Chesapeake for 9 years and will join Morgan at the Oh Baby expo to help show parents how easy it is to incorporate green living into a busy family lifestyle.
Stop by the Green Bambino table to check out the goodies we’ll have on display and say hi to Graham and Morgan – the first 25 employees or guests to do so will receive a free One Size pocket diaper in Chesapeake blue! If you don’t snag a diaper, don’t worry, we’ve got more free samples to give out.
Green Bambino is just 13 blocks south of the main Chesapeake campus, so we hope you’ll stop in over lunch soon!
