What's In Your Wallet?
By the time you read this I will be en route to the best sourdough on the planet. 500 miles might seem like a long ways to go for this, but it's been 5 years since I've had a fresh, warm sourdough bowl filled with clam chowder from Boudin bakery in San Francisco, and tomorrow I get to go back. If you've been there, you get it. This will be my daughter's first trip to S.F. and I can't wait to stroll through Fisherman's Warf with her, explore Alcatraz, surprise her with Pier 39's sea lions, drive down Lombard Street, catch a cable car, perhaps even bike across the Golden Gate and into Sausalito. It's going to be a great 4 days, and you haven't even heard the best part yet... this trip is FREE. Yep, completely free.
We finally got the good sense to get a mileage credit card a few months back, and now I'm taking a 4 day vacation for 3 on their dime. I'm pretty sure we are their worst possible scenario customer too. We use the card for business expenses and literally pay it off every day. I'm not really sure how they are making any money on this deal, but as long as they keep paying for my vacations I'm not going to bring it to their attention.
I'm all over this kind of thing. Whether it's my Dutch Bros stamp card, $10 punch card at the Buckle, or that fuel rebate you get at Safeway, it's a good thing. Because if there's one thing I am good at, it's spending money. I'm generally pretty lazy when it comes to this sort of thing. I'm not into "clipping coupons" or doing any of those real money saving things, but I will take a "bonus" for buying the things I already do.
Which brings me to my next point. Did you know that Heritage Brand has a rewards program called Heritage Cash? You receive $5 in "Heritage Cash" for every $100 you spend. How much was your last tack purchase? It's a free program, and you can sign up at anytime. And while we won't be sending you on a killer vacation to San Fran with this rewards program, you can use this "Cash" towards anything we sell, which is a pretty good deal. You also automatically get $5 in Heritage Cash just for signing up, so it really is worth the trouble. I wouldn't waste your time.
And as a special bonus, we will be awarding $100 in Heritage Cash to two Heritage Cash account holders next Thursday (5/31). So get signed up for an account to be eligible, and I will announce the winners in next week's blog post.
Now I'm off to explain to my husband why I need 6 pairs of shoes for a 4 day vacation... Wish me luck!
Until next time ~ Jess
