640 SE Lincoln Ave | St. Cloud, MN 56304

The Value Connection is a way for you to buy certificates for St. Cloud area businesses at a discount!   With Value Connection certificates you’ll save typically from 20% to 50% off the retail value of that certificate.  Certificates can be ordered online and mailed to you. (We cover the cost of mailing.)  Need them sooner?  Just stop by one of our St. Cloud locations:  Townsquare Media at 640 Lincoln Ave SE in St. Cloud. Cash Wise Foods at 113 South Waite Ave in Waite Park. Or at Miller Auto/Marine Plaza at the main desk.


The Value Connection also offers amazing deals on tickets.  “Ticket” deals can be purchased at Townsquare Media on Lincoln Avenue St. Cloud (and in some cases also at Cash Wise in Waite Park and Miller Auto/Marine). The available locations for a ticket deal will be noted in the description area of the deal’s information page.  (“Ticket” deals can be mailed to you, however for tickets a small certified mail/shipping fee may apply).


A recent addition to The Value Connection is a number of deals that are noted as “Instant Voucher”.  After purchased, an “Instant Voucher” will show up available to redeem under your account in the “Instant Voucher” tab. Once you’re at the business, you’ll redeem via your phone.  Then present the redeemed “Instant Voucher” screen to the business.


Finally, The Value Connection offers great savings on “National” (merchandise) deals through our partnership with Seize the Deal. For these merchandise deals the product itself is shipped to you and any shipping charges will be noted under the subject line of the item on the right on the deal’s information page.

Here are answers to some of our common questions:


How do I purchase?

You can purchase certificate and ticket deals online at, by calling 320-258-7283, and “over-the-counter” at Townsquare Media, at Cash Wise in Waite Park, or at the Miller Auto Marine Plaza.  National (merchandise) deals from Seize the Deal are ordered online only and then shipped to you. 

What type of payments do you accept?

At Miller Auto/Marine Plaza Desk and at Cash Wise office, we accept debit and credit cards for payment.  At our Townsquare Media location (home location) we take cash, check, debit, or credit cards.  Orders online are paid via debit or credit card.

I'm concerned about giving my credit card on the internet?

We use a secure server and encryption software to keep your credit card information secure. If you have concerns you also have the option to place your order over the phone at 320-258-7283 or over-the-counter at one of our desks.

If I choose to have my certificates mailed, how long will it take?

We generally process all orders within a business day from when you order.  It depends on your mail but generally two to five business days from date of purchase. If you do not receive them within 10 business days please contact us. If you need your certificates earlier than that, please consider picking up your certificates at our Townsquare Media location on Lincoln Avenue, St. Cloud.

What is your return policy?

All sales on are final. We do not make refunds on orders after payment for your certificates is made. 

What if I have a certificate for a business, and then it closes?

Once we have confirmed that the business is closed and will not reopen, we allow up to six months for you to bring their certificates back to our Townsquare Media location and we’ll exchange them for credit on your Value Connection account toward other deals we have in our inventory.

What are the “Featured Deals of the Week"?

Each week we offer a variety of certificates on sale.  These “Featured Deals of the Week” are discounted further from our regular Value Connection price.  Featured Deals of the week prices run from Monday at noon until Friday at noon.  In rare cases, quantities are limited so shop early in the week to help insure that you don’t miss out.

What are the "Weekend Specials"?

Each weekend, we showcase (and discount) Value Connection certificates that are part of a theme: could be a holiday theme, category theme, seasonal favorites, or special interests. Sale prices run from Friday at Noon until Monday at noon.

What are "Limited Time Specials"?

“Limited Time Specials” are certificates that are on sale or available for just a limited time.  They can change back to a higher price or run out of quantity without notice. A “Limited Time Special” is generally noted as such in the name or description of the deal.

How long do I have to use my certificates?

There are no expiration dates on our Value Connection certificates.  (However certificates for an event or season at a business would need to be used within time of event or season noted on the certificate).

I’ve ordered online, when can I pick up my order?

Online orders are processed at our Townsquare Media location and can be picked up during our business hours as soon as 15-minutes from when you order.
When you make a purchase online for pickup we ask that you pick up your certificates within thirty days. 

How long has the Value Connection been around?

We’ve been around as the Value Connection saving people money since the early 1990s!  We currently have over 400 businesses participating.  Prior to being called the Value Connection, this savings program was around many years before that known as “The Auction.”  It’s a “win” “win” program.  Value Connection customers win by saving money.  Businesses win by building credit to advertise with Townsquare Media by trading their product or service instead of spending cash. 

How do I get my business on The Value Connection?

There is a “Partner With Us” Link at the bottom of our home page on the left side.  Or, call Townsquare Media at 251-4422 and ask for Steve Lahr.  You can also contact us by email at and we will get in touch with you.

If you have any more questions regarding the Value Connection, you can call 320-258-7283. We are here to assist you Monday through Friday 8am to 6pm; Saturday 9am to 1pm (Central Time). Outside those time periods you can leave a message for us to get back to you.  You can also email us at  (Emails are checked Monday through Friday)
