Hallmark Cards are best! Review & Giveaway


Are you one that likes sending and receiving cards?
As long as I can remember, my mother has LOVED them!
She even has a box of them for all occasions!
I remember when I first went off to college, she made it a point to mail me cards all the time...
I think that is why I now love them!

We used to get cards for every occasion!
You name it, we would get a card...
She doesn't send as much as she used to, but the main events...
ALWAYS.

I am sure one reason for the lack of cards is due to postage...
When ever I am thinking of sending a card, it normally gets pushed to the side, since I am (9 times out of 10) without stamps...
That is just slack on my part, I know... but still.

That is why I love the direction that Hallmark is heading in!
Yes, you can now purchase Postage Paid Greeting Cards!
You see, Hallmark is made of people that are in the same situation as we all are...
Life gets busy, so they want to help ease some of the things we deal with.
If not having to swing by the post office can eliminate one thing off your to do list, Hallmark is helping us out!

With Mothers Day right around the corner, Hallmark has now announced the arrival of over 90 Mothers Day cards with the postage paid envelopes!
What makes it even better?
The postage bar code acts as a "forever stamp."
(Please tell me you know of these, as these are THE ONLY stamps I buy now...
They are sold at the current postage rate, but they are valid till forever...
Meaning, when postage rates increase, those stamps will STILL work!)
Anyways...

So, back to these cards...
You can purchase more than just Mothers Day cards though...
They have over 200 other cards that have the Postage Paid envelopes!
(Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You, Fathers Day... and so on)

Great thing about this...
You can get the Postage Paid Cards not only at Hallmark stores, but also at CVS, Wal-Mart and other places that Hallmark cards are sold!
The price range is from $2.69 to $3.99, so they are not totally ripping you off for convenience...
PLUS in my book!

I will tell you a secret...
I love the ones I received for review, but it did take getting used to the fact that the postage was already on it...
I saw our mail lady and forgot to put them out, because I was thinking I needed stamps...
Then, I looked and remembered that I had the postage paid ones!
Oops!

Here is a video clip from one of the Hallmark writers:
