JCPenney Rocks! And So Do Their Secret Santa Tags!

It’s no secret that I love to shop!  Seriously…spending Eric’s hard earned money makes my heart go a-flutter…in a totally I’m not addicted to shopping kind of way…

So when I found out I was selected to participate in the JCPenney Secret Santa Blog Tour from Mom Central I may or may not have squealed with delight…

Why? Because not only will I be receiving a Secret Santa present, I got to buy a Secret Santa present for another blogger!! And no, I can’t tell you who yet, I don’t any surprises being ruined!

I was giddy with excitement as I was cruising the JCPenney web site finding the perfect gift. My Secret Santa was a little vague, asking for home decor such as frames, so I really had to scour the goods to try and find something kind of neutral yet stunning that she would like…and did I succeed? Oh yes I did! Just wait until I show you what I bought…

Not only did I get to pick out a gift for my Secret Santa, I also got to record a personalized message for her! How, you’re asking? JCP has a QR Santa Tag that you can stick right onto your gift!

What the heck does that even mean Holly? Is that what you’re saying right now? Yeah, I bet…okay, here’s the scoop…

See that bar code black thingy on the side? You download a QR reader onto your smartphone, scan it, and call the 800 number listed.  Follow the prompts to leave your personalized message, peel off the label, stick it on the gift, and voila! You have your own personalized message for the recipient! When you receive your present, all you have to do is scan the barcode with your smartphone and the message plays! How cool is that? Need more help? Watch the video for step by step instructions…

Don’t have a smartphone? No worries, there’s an 800 number below the code you can call to both record your message and listen…so everyone can do it!

I will admit I felt really silly doing it, but in a good, funny way…I would totally do it again…

So what are you waiting for? Go to JCP and make sure you get a tag with your purchase! It’s no extra cost…hop to it!!!

And stay tuned…within the next week I’ll be sharing what I got from my Secret Santa and what I picked out for mine! Squeal!!!!!!!!

Oh, how I love Christmas….sigh….
