Community Partnerships & Support

Back in March, the Washington Tourism Alliance (WTA) launched the website in an effort to support the tourism and hospitality industry by encouraging residents and visitors to purchase gift cards to businesses throughout our state. In Spring, the WTA to added dozens of Seattle Southside businesses to the site. Now, the WTA is planning a robust marketing effort to reach more consumers than ever.

They are looking to add any businesses that offer online gift cards to this site. To check if you already have a listing, click here. If you are interested in creating a listing for your business, you can post your own by clicking here.

If you do not already offer online gift card purchases, you can learn how to do so here.
