    Do you send them out? Got mine all ready to go. This year along with my Xmas card I am including a $50 gift card that expires March 31 2017. Curious to see what extra work this will bring in. 2016 xmas.jpg

    The cards did okay. Not great. I had them made by my printer.

    Did you send postcards out throughout the year? Or was this the first postcard + gift card your client base received?

    I like idea. Send for Christmas I'm assuming to give you a little extra boost through the January, February, March slower season

    I do send out reminder cards to every customer every six months. I noticed that some of my repeats were trying to use the gift cards after the expiration date. Being in the northeast I was trying to drum up more work during the winter months.

    You should create two expiration dates... and reduce the value after the first expiration... That way, you don't have to honor the total value of your cards after the expiration date... That is if you did honor the cards after the expiration date...

    I saw someone else on this fourm made up gift cards out of plastic and looked just like a real gift card. Magnetic strip on back and everything. I am thinking of trying that . Give people a $25. Gift cards and they won't trash the card as quickly.
