Awesome Coupon! $5.00 off $5.00 purchase at Hallmark

I was so excited when I got this coupon last year. I had a couple of them and found some great deals. The coupons are found in select magazines.
Right now it has been found in the December issue of:
  •  Family Circle
  •  Oprah
  • Martha Stewart Living
  • Real Simple
  • Southern Living
  • and the November/December issue of Midwest Living.
The coupon is simple for $5.00 off of any $5.00 or higher purchase at Hallmark. Pair this with a sale and you can get even more bang for your coupon. You can always get some wrapping paper, greeting cards, or stock up on tissue paper as well. I’m guessing you can find some stocking stuffers in the $5 range without too much trouble.
Thank you Hallmark for bringing this awesome coupon back this year!

Needless to say, I am stocked up for the holidays!
