      • Annamarie

    • Jamie

      I was actually at the Hallmark store today to get a gift… Good thing I decided to wait a couple more days to purchase anything! Thanks so much for the savings!!!!! :)

    • Angela P

      Says “sorry, you’ve already printed this coupon the alotted number of times”! I have NEVER printed it. I am so frustrated! No free chocolates & no free cards!

    • Kristen

      I am so excited to use this coupon :)

    • Beth

      I got TWO!! THANKS jenny!!

    • This is great! Thanks! I got two as well!

    • Bobbie

      Thanks Jenny. I got two. They let me use two together last Friday when I was in there??

    • Bobbie

      I did purchase two different things though.

    • Anybody else have the problem printing where the message is given to install the coupon printer..and I have…3 times??? I don’t understand it. I have Windows XP. thanks! I can print FoodLion and Harvey;s w/out problem, btw.

    • Oh I got the same message… Sometimes those Brick coupons just don’t want to work for me…
      It will say “Install Coupon printer”.

      Oh well.

      • If you’re running Firefox and it’s an IE link, it will tell you to install coupon printer over and over. go to the command line in the address bar and change the “wi&o” to “wg&o” (or vice versa, itcould also be “vi&o” – same thing- change the i to a g)


      • oh and if you’re running IE and trying to print a FF link, it will just say “please wait” and nothing will happen. Change the letters in the command line and it should work fine.

    • Thanks Jenny the 2nd link worked!!!!

    • Sarah

      yea! thanks Jenny! I have been wanting this coupon! It did let me print two- different numbers and everything.

    • pharmSCgirl

      Thanks! Will they let you just get something for $5 and only pay the tax?

      • rebecca meyers

        it say’s on thew coupon that you have to at least spend $5.00

    • Teri

      How do you know if the Hallmark store is a Hallmark Gold Crown Store? Also, is anyone familiar with any of these stores in the Greenville, Easley area?

      • Michelle

        All of the ones in Greenville are Barbara’s Hallmark and they have accepted these coupons before.

    • Not surprised that Hallmark has been offering so many deals lately. I had read an article a few months back about how the popularity of Hallmark Ornament collecting is declining. Can’t say if that is really true or not as I don’t know.

    • Mandy

      Thank you so much!

    • Amy

      publix takes these on their hallmark cards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jenni

      Got these two, plus the one from the magazine! I can’t wait to have a little “spree” at my local Hallmark store! Thanks!

    • Amanda

      I used one q from my Martha Stewart magazine and was able to get almost free wrapping paper and tissue paper for baby shower gifts, which is great since so many of my friends are pregnant this year. Three baby shower gifts down, one more to go and then two shower and wedding gifts for next year. I think I will try for free wedding wrapping paper or cards! I am excited I could print 4 of these, two from one computer and two from another computer in my house. Yay for free or almost free wrapping paper and cards!

    • Jenni

      Wow! Thank you so much! I buy myself a snowglobe for Christmas every year, and I always try to find one under $10.00. The coupon really helped!

    • Lynn

      Thanks so much! I was just looking for a Hallmark coupon because my kids want more Webkins for Xmas. Excellent timing.

      • julia

        i purchased two webkinz with my $5 off coupon. our hallmark had a deal for buy one get one 50% off. they still included the half off with my coupon! also, check out target. they have a box set of a full size webkinz and a medium sized matching friend for $9.99.

    • marcia

      Fyi…webkins are not hallmark products and therefore the coupon will not be valid…the item should have the hallmark gold crown symbol somewhere on the package

      • julia

        marcia, i used my coupon for webkinz and they allowed me to use it.

      • Stacey

        The coupons say $5.00 off your total purchase, doesn’t specify brands. Looks to me like you can use it on any item in a Hallmark Gold Crown store.

    • I stopped by today and pick up some small boxes of chocolate and something from the clearance section. Thanks!

    • jessica

      for all you moms who know of the silly band craze… they are 4.99 at these stores… i got a 24pk of silly bands and a $.99 card and all i paid was about 1.60 with tax… free silly bands??? yay!

    • Heather

      Wow. I went in tonight and got 4 rolls of wrapping paper for 2.00! That’s buy one roll at 4.99 and get one for .99! So, I got 4 rolls (she let me do 2 transactions) for $1.98 plus tax. I was thrilled.

    • I did the three steps…..pressed print. It gave a page w/only(YOUR COUPONS ARE READY) (INSTALL THE COUPON PRINTER) I did that then pressed print coupon and nothing happened…went back and the website said that I had already printed my coupon..therefore, I never got a coupon. I’m not buying a $5 or $6 magazine to get a coupon I could get on-line. I even read the troubleshooting and couldn’t get the coupon.
      Patti Had planned on Hallmark store near husband’s doctor office today to get the Christmas Holiday Snowman or Animals musical decoration I get every year. Actually I haven’t seen it advertised on TV so maybe there aren’t any this year. I’ll go to the after Christmas sale instead. Patti

    • amy

      New to online coupons-
      #1- Is it okay to print more than one coupon by using the back button?
      #2- Is it okay to print coupons from more than once computer if available?
      #3- When the coupon states “limit one coupon per customer” (as this one does), is it okay to print more than one to use?

      I want to learn correct coupon etiquette.

      Thank you.

      • Heather

        Yes, it is OK to print more than one coupon (98% of sites only allow a maximum of 2 anyway) by clicking the back button. Your second question is borderline etiquette. I am sure that most of us do it if it is something we really need or are going to donate somewhere. I would not make a practice of it (remember this is just my opinion). Limit one per customer is tricky too. I send the hubs in when it says things like that. Usually, if it is only 2, I don’t think it is wrong if you are following the rules of the coupon. If you were to print more than 2, then yes, that would probably be frowned upon in the “couponing world”. We don’t want these wonderful shopping opportunities taken away from us (some stores won’t accept printable coupons anymore because of frivolous and fraudulent coupon usage) so your concern is definitely welcome in this forum. I hope that we all follow the “rules” as well as you seem to want to. Welcome and happy bargain shopping!

      Just go this info…

      Dearest Family and Friends,

      I just came out of a Hallmark Gold Crown store and was amazed to see over 48 feet of Christmas cards and not ONE with Jesus’ birth or anything religious connected to the Christmas story. I inquired of the sales clerk if this was possible and she said, “We just removed our line of inspiration cards!” I put over a $100 worth of purchases on the counter and walked out.
      I went to Giant Foods nearby and they only had Hallmark with no cards on Jesus’ birth!

      I called Hallmark Gold Crown Store’s customer service and the supervisor told me I’d find it on line but not in the store.

      Seeing is believing! Go into a Hallmark store and look for yourself.

      I said to the head of customer service, perhaps you do not know the POWER of the internet but I am on a campaign to boycott Hallmark! You will regret your marketing strategy for this year!

      Hallmark stores give you a wonderful, cozy, Christmas feeling…but don’t be deceived. One way you can help is to pass this e-mail on to other folks in your address book! A second is to walk into a Hallmark Gold Crown Store and voice your opinion!

      Merry Christmas!

    • wow this was great for me, I printed 2 coupons, and had one already that was mailed to me. I showed the girl at the counter all of my coupons and asked her what I could use. She used all 3 coupons for 5 dollars off, then the mailer I got for 20% off, then I used my gold crown bucks. I got 5 cards with sound, 2 books, and an ornament. Total savings $31.41!!!

    • Emily

      they wouldn’t accept these at my store….they claim they are illegal?
