West Virginia State Park Gift Cards Have “Something Extra” for the Holiday Season

            SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – It’s that “Something Extra” time of year for purchasing West Virginia State Parks gift cards. Gift card purchases made online or by telephone order between Nov. 1 and Dec. 17, 2013, receive additional promotional discounts for the card recipient, or for the person who purchases the card.

            For every $100 card purchased, the “Something Extra” cards are mailed with the West Virginia State Park gift card. Together, the plastic gift card and the paper “Something Extra” cards have a value totaling approximately $155, depending on use dates and if redeemed. Unlike the gift card itself, which can be used any time for all purchases and services at all state parks, “Something Extra” cards have expiration dates. 

            The “Something Extra” promotion is only offered on gift card purchases made online from Nov. 1 through Dec. 17, 2013, or by telephone order to 304-558-2764, (ask for Carol). There is no shipping or handling fee. Cards are mailed via US Postal Service.

            “Gift cards convey to the recipient that a person knows you or your family interests,” said Sissie Summers of West Virginia State Parks. “The card becomes an experience when redeemed.”

            West Virginia State Park gift cards can be used on lodging, dining, gift shops or other activities that charge a fee. In addition, each gift card purchase of $100 made online or by telephone order before Dec. 17 will receive up to eight “extras” such as “two for one” offers and other discounts at West Virginia State Parks and Forests. To place an order, visit www.wvstateparks.com and click “Gift Card Purchase” or call 304-558-2764, ext. 51828 (Carol).
