While many bases are using coupons, gift certificates, and “Force Support Squadron Bucks,” there is no Force Support standard gift card for use in all NAF activities or any AF-wide Force Support redemption program. In other words, there’s never been a standard gift card program – but that’s about to change!
AFSVA has been working on a Force Support gift card that will be available for use throughout all of our FSS operations. A standard card and program is important in that a gift card purchased at any Force Support NAF activity on any base can be used at any other base Force Support NAF activity around the world. The advantages of an FSS gift card are obvious—to the Force Support patron, it’s easy to redeem them as there are many activities where they can be used and they “work” just like a credit card. They’re easier to manage than coupons and FSS bucks, they’re convenient to maintain and easier to handle and are more durable than paper coupons. The real advantage and convenience is they can be used in FSS activities literally anywhere “around the world.”
Starting June 27th, Force Support gift cards will be available for purchase at numerous 5th Force Support Squadron facilities. Locations on Minot AFB who will sell and accept the new gift cards include: Rough Rider Lanes, Rough Rider Golf Course, Outdoor Recreation, Arts & Crafts, Auto Hobby, Youth Center, Child Development Center, Rockers Bar and Grill, Rough Riders, Jimmy Doolittle Center, and Vet Treatment Center.
The patron decides how much goes on the card, pays only that amount and is issued the gift card. Any amount can be loaded starting at $5. Gift cards are reloadable and balances can be checked anytime on-line at www.myfssgiftcard.com.
The overwhelming benefit of the new gift card is the convenience. It takes the worry out of what to give someone for a special occasion. The card can be used for everything and anything Force Support Squadrons offer, from enjoying a round of golf to lunch at one of the 5 FSS restaurants.
