You’ll be able to submit outstanding receipts up to 11.59pm on Thursday 2 December 2021.
Melbourne Money will return on Monday 15 November.

The first round of Melbourne Money was hugely successful in activating our city and helping footfall bounce back.
Repeated lockdowns have impacted weekday trading in the city so we are encouraging city workers, residents and visitors to come and help bring the buzz back to the city during the week.
The rebate won’t be available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday dining. The offer will be on a first-in-first-served basis until funds are exhausted.
The rebate is available across the entire municipality including Southbank, Chinatown, Lygon Street, Docklands, North Melbourne and Kensington and at hospitality venues within sporting, arts and theatre precincts.
Midweek Melbourne Money will be served up from Monday 15 November. The scheme applies to all restaurants, cafes and bars where meals are served across the municipality, and will continue until funds are exhausted.
Melbourne Money is being offered through the $200 million Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund – a joint partnership with the Victorian Government.
*Note: Each customer / bank account is allowed a maximum rebate of $150. Once a customer / bank account reaches the maximum rebate of $150, further claims will not be accepted. Multiple claims can be made until you reach your maximum rebate of $150.
