Your WVEA membership card is also your Access Card - the key to discounts on hotels, golf courses, ski resorts, travel, restaurants, entertainment and recreation packages through the Internet-based ACCESS card program. This benefit is free and available only to WVEA members.
Restaurants, retailers, merchants, golf courses and other providers will feature their special offers directly to WVEA members in the “ACCESS-Member Benefits” section of the WVEA Website. It is WVEA’s goal that these exciting savings opportunities will help members stretch their budget, while allowing them to enjoy a wide variety of leisure and recreational activities.

Below are answers to some commonly asked questions about the WVEA Membership/ACCESS card.
What is this plastic card?
The card is your WVEA Membership Card. It now doubles as your ACCESS Savings Card. You can present the card at participating businesses to receive discounts on everything from haircuts to oil changes to greens fees, cruises, rental cars, hotels and more.
Is this some kind of credit card?
No, it’s not a credit card or a bankcard. It’s your WVEA Membership Card. The number on the front is your WVEA member ID number and it serves as your ACCESS number.
What is the ACCESS program?
It’s a free members-only benefit, available only online here at www.wvea.org. ACCESS allows you to search by zip code or city name for locations around the world. You’ll find savings on hotels, theme parks, golf courses, national chains, meals, haircuts, car care and more. Some discounts require a coupon that you print out from the site, or reservations. Otherwise, just present your card to receive your discount at participating businesses.
How do I register a username and password?

Who do I contact for more information or if I have problems?
Call the customer service number on the back of your WVEA ACCESS card or e-mail us at email@example.com.
My community doesn’t have many participating businesses. What can I do?
Refer local businesses to the program! You can either call the customer service number on the back of your card or fill out the merchant referral form in the ACCESS section of the site. The ACCESS staff will contact the business and invite them to participate. WVEA members like you need to refer local businesses. Because of those referrals, more business can be added to the number of participating businesses in West Virginia.
