H allmark Card Rewards – Get 1 Reward for Every 5 Cards You Buy!
It seems as though our methods of communicating with friends and family near and far has changed. After all, in our digital and hurry it up world, it’s so easy to send an email or Facebook message to friends and family to let them know we are thinking about them. However, in the end, nothing takes the place of a card specially handpicked for friends and family.
Not only does a hand picked card make them feel special, but it this digital world it shows you went the extra mile. It makes the recipient feel happy, cared for, and appreciated.
Last week, I received a card in the mail from a good friend of mine with a very kind handwritten message inside. Honestly, besides my birthday it was the first time I can remember in a long time that I have gotten a card in the mail. It is an understatement to say that it truly made my day.
Not only did this card make me feel special, but it presented me with a challenge. I asked myself, “when was the last time I sent a card to a friend, just to let them know I was thinking of them or a birthday card other than a facebook wish?” If I’m being honest, I’ve gotten in a bad habit of sending a quick and generic Facebook “Happy Birthday” message. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when that is appropriate, but for those close to me a handwritten card says so much more.
And so I made a pledge. This holiday season, I want to take the time to let those near and far know we are thinking of them. And I want to do this in a way that is more sincere than sending a quick email or Facebook message. Now, this doesn’t need to be a pricey endeavor. Even though we are always looking for ways to stretch our dollar around here at Time 2 $ave, we have found that sending a card to someone we love is still in our budget.
It seems as though Hallmark has now made it even easier to send our love to friends and family wherever they may be with their Hallmark Card Rewards program. In fact, I found out that you can get rewarded for the Hallmark Cards you buy at more than 30,000 grocery and drug stores and supercenters across the U.S. When you buy 5 Hallmark cards, you can earn 1 reward. Thanks to program partners such as Land’s End, Omaha Steaks, Applebee’s, Starbucks, and Nike, these rewards vary in nature, and can include gift cards, discounts, dollar off coupons, and more. So while you are making someone else’s day brighter, you are also getting a little perk for yourself. To make this reward earning a little easier, you can download the Hallmark Card Rewards mobile app (which is available for Android and iPhone), so you can scan the barcode on your Hallmark cards and start earning.
You can take advantage of Hallmark’s fantastic reward program, by registering here. As an added bonus, one of the first 1,000 new members to register will win $500! Below are examples of the kind of rewards available. This is by far the most generous rewards program I’ve seen.
