#ad: I get rewarded just for making someone smile, do YOU? #HallmarkCardRewards

#ad: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Hallmark and Latina Bloggers Connect.

Hallmark Card Rewards

I get rewarded just for making those I know and love smile! Just for letting them know I was thinking of them! Something I do even when it's not a particularly special occasion. I love to celebrate everyday moments and victories with friends and families, not just the major milestones! I learned the hard way last year that everyday moments are 'the special moments'! And I love the look on a friend or family member's face when I surprise them with a 'real card'. The smile on my niece or my nephew butterfly faces when I send them a card in the mail just because they got an A on a 'hard test' or won an award for team sports is priceless!

I actually get rewarded TWICE (but please don't tell them that!). The first is for the happiness that my card gives them, and the second is via Hallmark Rewards! Yes that's right, you get rewarded for buying cards! NICE, verdad? (verdad? = right?) :-) So if I go in and buy cards for co-workers, friends and family and I purchase at or about 50 individual cards (this is for individual cards, not boxed sets) I get one reward for every 5 cards I buy; so if I nab 50 cards, I'll end up with 10 rewards that I can use for either Lands End, Applebee's, Omaha Steaks and Cherry Moon Farms! Pretty sweet deal!

Get the lowdown on Hallmark Card Rewards:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Get rewarded everywhere you buy Hallmark Cards at more than 30,000 grocery stores, drug stores, and supermarkets across the U.S. for selecting individual cards and NOT for boxed greetings!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Earn 1 reward for every 5 Hallmark Cards Purchased. Rewards include gift cards, discounts, dollars off, and more from rewards partners including: Starbucks, Nike, Applebee's, Land's End, Omaha Steaks and many others!

Hallmark has been a Holiday Tradition for my family as my mom would buy a new holiday ornament at various Hallmark locations during her travels in and out of the city, it's a ritual we still do to this day! We like to get collectible ornaments especially and each year we run over to get the next ornament in several series we are collecting for our tree! Our tree decorations are NOT complete until we add this year's newest store ornament!

One of our favorite types of ornaments to collect are the carousel horses, Hallmark always gets great ones and a new one each year, I have this one, it's one of my favorites:

BUTTERFLIES: what is your favorite gift to buy at Hallmark or do you just focus on cards? (Either Way, be sure to get rewarded for your purchases!) 

If anyone saves up enough rewards, I LOVE Applebees riblets by the way! So if you save up enough you treat to dinner OK? Wink! WInk! :-)

Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Tenth Giveaway sponsored by:

Christmas in August? I had a chance to celebrate Christmas in August with Hallmark when I attended the BlogHer 2010 Conference in New York City. On a warm, humid evening, Hallmark transformed a beautiful party space into a Christmas Wonderland!

There were themed rooms, a very 'Hunky' santa, Christmas themed Cocktails, and a variety of Hallmark Ornaments, Recordable Storybooks and not just a goodie bag, but a full on goodie box so chock full of goodies, that instead of leaving the party with them, they were mailed to us later!

I am a long time card carrying 'Gold Crown' member Hallmark Fan. I love to give and receive Hallmark Cards and my biggest weakness, their ornaments. We get a new ornament each year. My Christmas tree really could be used in their advertising as a display tree.

My Inner Child

The ornaments all have memories and all bring out my inner child. But I will have to admit that I did have a favorite in my goodie box, it's Hoops&yoyo™! They always make me smile and I was very happy to find a Hoops&yoyo™ ornament in my box, they were given a very prime 'front and center' spot on my tree this year!

When you press the button in the center you can hear one of several silly messages from hoops&yoyo! Dimensions: 3 1/2" H. Price: $16.95 - If you want to purchase it, you can just press on the image above and it will take you straight there! Everyone just HAS to press it and hear what the little pranksters have to say!

Your A Cute One Mr. Grinch

Green Eggs and Ham™
I remember my mom would read me Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss when I was a little girl and have to admit I was also very much delighted to find this ornament in my goodie box! This ornament is by By Julie Forsyth. Dimensions: 3 1/4" W. Price: $14.95 The image is also clickable directly to hallmark if you'd like to purchase one for that special little someone who enjoys Dr. Seuss!

First in a Series

I have quite a bit of ornaments that are a series, and each year I always look forward to finding out what is being released in a series I'm collecting. Start a new ornament tradition with this first-in-the-series stained glass window ornament. Each ornament in this new series will feature a stained glass window with a unique design. Attaches to light string for optional light effect.

Glad Tidings - 1st in the Windows of Faith series

Glad Tidings is the 1st in the Windows of Faith series, and I already know I will be collecting the series! Years ago I taught the Special Education students in my church and I attended a conference and during the breakout session there was an expo hall with vendors and I bought a set of Stained Glass Ornaments that I absolutely treasure. They have to be placed very strategically however to truly catch the light. When I saw this ornament from Hallmark, that simply plugs into one of the lights on the tree and then illuminates from within, it was absolutely, positively LOVE at first sight. And since I also love watching the annual mass from Rome each year, this series is sure to become one of my favorites!

On ornament: Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy. Luke 2:10 By Tom Best. 4 1/2" H. Price $12.95. The image is clickable if you'd like to add this ornament to your collection!

Hallmark Recordable Storybooks

There were tons of goodies in the box, including Hallmark Recordable Storybooks!  These books are wonderful because they allow a special child in your life to hear your voice reading the story. Bringing the story to life for them in a much more meaningful way. If mom or dad often work late and miss bed time, your children can still hear YOUR voice! Do grandma and grandpa or a favorite aunt or uncle live in another city? Send them the book so they can record their voice reading the story, and then the grandchild or niece/nephew can still hear the voice of the Grandparent, Aunt or Uncle they love!

DISCOUNT ALERT: Haven't ordered your holiday cards yet? Hallmark even offers you the option of them mailing them out for you! In addition, I have a discount code for you! Use the code Blogher30 for 30% off your holiday cards on, isn't that cool? HURRY! This offer expires 12/31/10.
