As big proponents of sending cards (and saving the ones we receive ourselves, for all of eternity), we’re pretty excited to see just how many beautifully designed, modern cards are being offered by our partner Hallmark these days. Because let’s be honest, we’re often the ones in the local drugstore days before Christmas, stocking up for all those last minute invitations and visitors. And we are picky. As you well know.
No, we didn’t design this but we want to hire whomever did.
So we’re especially delighted to learn about Hallmark’s rewards program which gives you goodies of your choice just for buying the cool things you’d buy anyway. And that’s our favorite kind of rewards program. But since this is the season of giving, there’s more.
Right now, visit the Hallmark Facebook page and play the Seal the Deal instant win game, and you’ll automatically win something. From nice coupons to grand prizes like a new iPad, a $2,500 shopping spree, or $5,000 towards a dream family vacation.
And if that weren’t nice enough, Hallmark is giving another special goodie just to one of our readers.
Special as in $500 special. Hello.
We’ve put it together just for you, and we think you’ll like it. It includes: A gorgeous Kate Spade New York Bright-Light Carah crossbody bag AND a $50 American Express gift card for you, and one for you to share with a friend. Because what is the holidays about, if not sharing?
So that’s two bags and two gift cards for one lucky Cool Mom Picks reader.
1. Play Seal the Deal on Hallmark’s Facebook page, where you’ll need to register for Hallmark Card Rewards (which you want to do anyway.)
2. Win something. Which you will. Every first-time player does.
3. Possibly win something even bigger. Possibly huge. You may even cry and write us a really nice note–on a Hallmark card of course–from your dream vacation, thanking us for telling you about this. Also, we really like European chocolate so if you go there, you can send us some. (Though that part isn’t required for entry.)
4. After you’ve played Seal the Deal and registered for Hallmark Card Rewards, you can enter to win the $500 gift pack that’s just for our own readers. It’s easy: Just email us at email@example.com and tell us the email address you used to register so that we can double-check with Hallmark. For one additional entry, send a second email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link or screen shot of your tweet or Facebook status sharing our post about the Hallmark Card Rewards program. (You can share as many times as you like, but you only get one additional entry.)
You’ll find out if you’re a winner around January 10, for a little post-holiday, holiday cheer for one of you.
Thanks to our sponsor Hallmark for making great cards, giving away great stuff, and doing nice things for our readers. Make sure to sign up for the Hallmark rewards program for all the cards you buy at more than 30,000 stores and head to the Hallmark Facebook page to play the Seal the Deal instant win game. Good luck!
