LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering electronic gift cards for sale.
The electronic cards go on sale starting Friday and can be redeemed at any Michigan state park or state harbor, online or at the reservation call center.
The electronic cards will be available for purchase for any whole dollar amount after a $5 first-time minimum has been met, and the cards are reloadable.
The DNR in recent years has offered $25 gift certificates for sale online, and the sale of these paper certificates will be discontinued in 2014. State parks and harbors will honor the redemption of already-purchased paper gift certificates at their facilities.
