There is something so very rewarding about being given a card when it is your birthday. The saying holds true, it's the little thought that counts. I love just knowing that I'm being thought of on my special day as I'm sure others feel too. Over the weekend I went to Walmart to stock up on Hallmark Value Cards to send friends and family for their birthdays for the entire year. At the low prices of $0.47 and $0.97 per Hallmark Value Card I can easily afford to stock up on all that I need. With the Hallmark Card Rewards Program it's almost like getting cards for free. I get rewarded for every 5 Hallmark cards that I buy at Walmart.
The Hallmark Value Card selection is impressive, there were approximately over 350 cards to choose from at my Walmart. The birthday cards were what I was after and I found the perfect card for each person on my list. Before I had left home I'd grabbed my calendar and then jotted down all the birthdays that I could to my shopping list. I brought a pen along just to be sure I could check off the names as I found the cards I wanted.
Keeping a list in your purse is definitely a good idea so that you are prepared for gifting. As I find the things I wish to gift I write the items by each name to keep track. When I buy my cards for the year I can immediately check those off as I drop them into my cart. My list keeps me from getting confused and also helps me not miss anyone.
The bright and colorful Hallmark cards are so pretty and the variety is amazing. I wished I'd written down more people to buy birthday cards for because I seriously could have bought tons more. I actually did grab a few extras from the $0.47 section to keep around just in case. A card in the mail to wish a happy birthday is sure to brighten the recipient's day. All of the cards I picked up on this trip are pictured below, they are so beautiful.
I found a cute cake card for my youngest niece because she loves pink and all things girly, a dog card for my sister the animal lover, an ice cream card for a sweet sister-in-law, a cool robot card for my youngest son, an artistic looking cake card for my mother-in-law, a funny gorilla card for a brother-in-law and so many more. I'm just so impressed with what you can buy from Hallmark and for such low prices. We are really excited to send these out to all the special people in our lives!
When I got home I just signed into my Hallmark Rewards account online, entered the codes from my cards (up to 20 allowed every month) and then I have to wait for about 30 days to redeem my Hallmark Card Rewards. I can redeem my rewards for some really nice things such as a Starbucks egift card or a credit coupon for Shari's Berries. It's so simple. After entering all the codes for my rewards and hitting the 20 count limit I then jotted down the extra cards for the next month so that I could claim those for my next month's rewards. I plan to go back to Walmart for about 25 more Hallmark Value Cards for other life events in the very near future!
