Branson Brings Back 'Gas Buster' Cards
Branson Brings Back "Gas Buster" Cards
Responding to the ever-increasing price of a gallon of gas, the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB is once again offering visitors a Gas Buster discount card. Good at dozens of live shows, area attractions, lodging properties, retail shops and restaurants, the card is worth a total of $50 off purchases. Folks signing up for the 2008 Gas Buster discount card will also have a chance to win a Grand Prize Getaway to Branson!
"By offering the Gas Buster discount card, we are letting families know that we value their business. And Branson's entertainment families are willing to work together to defray the cost of a vacation, so that folks can afford to do all the things they would like to do here," according to Righteous Brother's Bill Medley, appearing at Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theatre. "I hope this will help bring more people here. Families looking for shows, theme parks, golf, lakes recreation, along with shopping, dining and world-class entertainment will find it all in Branson."
Between May 1 and Oct. 31, 2008, the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB will give a Gas Buster discount card to anyone who presents a valid drivers' license and a minimum of $40 in gas receipts incurred within 48 hours of their arrival at one of the Chamber's two Welcome Centers, located at the intersections of U.S. Highway 65 and Missouri Highway 248, and at Hwy. 65 and Missouri Highway 160 in Branson. Gas Buster card holders are automatically entered to win the grand prize 4-day/3-night vacation for four to Branson, which will be awarded on October 31, 2008.
Branson star and famous Russian comedian Yakov Smirnoff notes, "Most visitors to Branson drive their personal vehicle. With gas prices rising, who ya gonna call? Gas Busters! Branson's "Gas Buster" card allows families to get more for their fuel dollar than just the gas needed to get to and from Branson."
Gas Buster discount cards and the list of participating sponsors will only be issued from the two Chamber/CVB Welcome Centers. Business hours are 8am to 5pm, Mondays through Saturdays, and 10am to 4pm on Sundays. The Gas Buster promotion runs from May 1 through Oct. 31, 2008.
