Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism, Arvest Bank collaborate to offer specialty debit cards 

Arvest Bank now offers limited edition cards to display popular destinations across The Natural State.


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 7, 2016) - The Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and Arvest Bank worked in collaboration to create a limited-edition series of specialty debit cards that showcase some of the state’s most scenic and popular attractions.

The eight debit card designs feature images from every area of the state including Blanchard Springs Caverns, Buffalo National River, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Lake Chicot State Park, Lake Ouachita, Petit Jean State Park, The Ridges at Village Creek and Whitaker Point near Boxley. The cards will be available to new and current Arvest Bank customers at any bank location across Arkansas, as well as the communities the bank serves in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma from August 19, 2016, through June 30, 2017.

“This is an opportunity that gives our customers access to unique designs for their specialty cards, along with the ability to show their sense of pride in Arkansas and promote it every time a transaction is made,” said Jason Kincy, spokesman for Arvest Bank. “The eight card designs each differ in appearance, yet all display the inherent beauty of The Natural State.”

“We want to share all of the wonderful sites Arkansas offers, so it was an easy decision to partner with the largest bank in Arkansas, and to have the opportunity to promote our attractions outside the state as well,” said Kane Webb, executive director of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism.

Debit cards are free to customers who open a new account with Arvest or they may be purchased to replace an existing card for $7.50. See the limited-edition designs at www.Arvest.com/personal/bank/checking/debit-cards/specialty.
