Gift Certificates purchased elsewhere.

My local Chamber of Commerce sells Chamber Bucks. These are gift certificates that are good at many of the area businesses. When I get one redeemed in the store, I enter it into my POS payment as Gift Certificate. Then I bring them to the chamber office and they cut me a check for all of them. So, my question is, how do I enter that check into quickbooks? Does it need to be entered into my POS?

It is kind of the reverse of how Gift certificates are usually. When I sell on it is entered as a sale, and when it is redeemed it is entered as a payment. But this is reversed, so not sure what to do.

Thanks!

I would go to the Make a Sale screen, choose to sell a gift certificate, and then pay it with the check. I know the check may be for many certificates, but you will just sell one big sale, and pay with that check. This will make the money go to the appropriate balance account.
