NEWS FLASH – December 21, 2008
LAST MINUTE DEAL ON the VERY LAST, LAST MINUTE GIFT………and a BIG DISCOUNT as well!
By the time you get this newsletter almost anything you buy will not reach you before Christmas unless you want to pay for Next Day Air which we all know is expensive.
So, let’s talk about the BEST LAST MINUTE GIFT AVAILABLE…Our Gift Cards at 10% OFF the FACE VALUE! These are e-mailed to your recipient or you (you gotta’ love yourself as well!) almost immediately after you buy them from our web site. So even if you wait until the very last minute, which would be December 23rd for us, you can still get a gift to whomever you like.
Just select the amount of the gift card you want from our web site, in the NOTES SECTION in our checkout tell us what design you want, the greeting you want included, and the recipients’ name and e-mail address. Then just check out using a credit card or PayPal and we will take it from there. And as easy as that, you just finished all that last minute shopping for those hard-to-buy-for folks on your list.
And yes, WE HAVE A DEAL FOR YOU…..
Here’s my story about how all this came about: I went to our local Sam’s Club this weekend looking for the “perfect” gift for my lovely wife of 42 years. As you can imagine after 42 years, 3 kids, 4 dogs, and lots of Christmases there are very few choices left…and I KNEW a new toaster was out of the question. So, I found my self looking at gift cards, specifically a Visa or MasterCard Gift card. But wait! They wanted to CHARGE ME $6.00 “activation fee” on a $100 card!? That meant the card cost $106.00! Then the merchant pays 2% to 4% for the privilege of processing the card? What Greed!
So, after this experience I got to thinking, How can we at American Legacy “buck” this greedy trend? (yea, I’m an “old school” guy) The answer is to SELL YOU ANY OF OUR GIFT CARDS AT 10% DISCOUNT! Whatever gift card you buy we’ll send you one (or more) priced at 10% off the actual value of the card. Screw those greedy Visa and MasterCard folks!
Our gift cards come in denominations from $25 up to $1,000 and every one is currently priced at 10% off the face value! NO EXPIRATION DATE and no greedy service, maintenance, or activation charges. What more can you ask?
Here are pictures of the design choices:

THANK YOU for your overwhelming response to our $25 discount last week….
To say the response was more than expected would be this month’s biggest understatement. Folks, we were simply overwhelmed. But, every order got shipped the same day or the following day and our crew definitely gave 150% to get the job done. Thanks to all of our wonderful customers and all of our crew who worked through lunch, dinner, (breakfast?). As always, they put our customer’s best interest first. May all of you have a most wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
Where are the fishing pictures???
A very GOOD question! I think everyone is just really busy right now and e-mailing us fishing pictures has taken a back seat to making sure the little woman (or big guy) gets that perfect Christmas gift. I know in our household buying each grandchild a gift takes concentration and creativity, both of which my wife excels. Me, I’m still here at our store making sure every order gets out and every customer is completely satisfied. And “no”, I haven’t gotten through all my picture file either to figure out which pictures I would like on our Braggin Board.
Maybe after the holidays…………………
