It is know that I love a good Hallmark deal. They are the unsung heroes of clearance deals, in my humble, and now they’re bringing us some Free Card realness for next three months.
You read this right. Every Friday, from now until September 27th, you can score a Free Just Because card, valued at $2.99. With categories as varied as Congratulations, Sympathy, New Baby, Birthday, and Romance, you can stock up on all your card giving activities for the coming year. Birthdays? Check! Valentine’s Day? Check! You could even slap a picture of the family inside of some of these General cards and bam, Christmas card!
How do you score this deal? Very simple.
On Friday, go to your local Hallmark store.
Find the Just Because cards. Mine were in the front of the store, on their own display.
Pick the card you like.
Ignore all the other clearance they’re tempting you with because Target Summer Toy Clearance is coming up and you have to be smart with those dollars. That tip might be specific to me.
Why you gotta be 75% off, Horse Stick? Stop tempting me!
Pay $.21 for the card you liked.
Yes, it’s true. There is a little bit of a charge, because sales tax. So your $2.99 is free, but you’ll have to pay your state appropriate sales tax. For me it was 21 cents. But before you start yelling at me, “it’s not free then!”, let’s do the math. There are 13 Fridays before this deal expires. If I buy a card every week for the entire sale promotion at $.21 a card, that gives me a total of $2.73 spent. Which is less than the cost of one card! So you could look at it as, Buy 1, Get 12 Free.
Are you doing this sweet deal? What are some ways you are using your cards? Do you stan Hallmark like I do? Let me know down below!
