Limited edition cards to display popular destinations across Oklahoma.

Arvest Bank and the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department collaborated to create a series of specialty debit cards that showcase some of the state’s most popular state park attractions. 

The six debit card designs feature images from throughout the state, including Beavers Bend, Boiling Springs, Lake Murray, Osage Hills, Robbers Cave and Roman Nose. The cards will be available to new and current Arvest Bank customers at any bank location across Oklahoma, as well as the communities the bank serves in Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri, on May 22.

“This opportunity gives our customers access to unique designs for their specialty cards, along with the ability to show their sense of pride in Oklahoma State Parks and promote it every time a transaction is made,” said Angela Spradlin, Southwest Oklahoma marketing manager for Arvest Bank. “These six cards showcase distinct places, but each one displays some of the inherent beauty to be found in the state of Oklahoma.”

“In celebrating 80 years of Oklahoma State Parks, we want to share all of the wonderful sites Oklahoma offers, so it was an easy decision to partner with Arvest Bank, and to have the opportunity to promote our parks outside the state as well,” said Kris Marek, director of Oklahoma State Parks.   

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 on our website.
