Glad you figured it out, Sue. If you have any other questions, feel free to email. (I've had several do so, and I don't mind helping my competition...G)

I'm coming up with 4 bids per day by just bidding on restaurants.com restaurant gift certificates in my town. Usually, I can just bid $1.00, and I know I won't win because they always go higher. And if I do have to go higher, I can always use the certificates.

Ginny, I bid on something on ebay this morning and I didn't get an instant win box. It was the first time I have bid on anything this week. In fact, I was going to email you to see how you were getting the chances. Now I know.

Thanks for taking the time to list all of them, Nancy.

Are these magazines also for the most part the ones that have the sweepstakes entry in them?

I thought it would be a good thing to have a post that summarizes which magazines and which issues of those magazines have the free coupons. And for those who have multiple magazines, did you notice that there are at least two different ads? One has a little boy (and shows the Christmas Growth Chart ornament); the other one has a little ballerina accompanied by the Jewelry Box Ballet ornament. A third one has a little girl peeking out from behind some curtains on a stage, and the ornament is the A Link to Yesterday ornament from the Family Tree collection.

Here's the ornaments and the issue information I have:
Better Homes and Gardens (December issue)
Child
Essence
Family Circle (December 17 issue)
Family Fun
Good Housekeeping (December issue)
Ladies Home Journal (December issue)
Martha Stewart Living
Parenting
Parents
People
Redbook (December issue)
Rosie (must be December because it's not November)
Woman's Day (December 17 issue)

I don't have the December issue of Rosie handy, and these are the only magzines on this list that I have subscriptions to. The rest of them I'd have to check at the doctor's office or at the library and I don't know when I'll be at either one in the near future.

Stores were sent videos (at random, I think)and the 3pc box of chocolates specifically for this promotion. My sponsor store got Alice In Wonderland.

The ebay Match and Win began on November 11. I've been getting my 5 ebay chances per day, but there was one day I bid 3 times and the instant win box didn't pop up; so I quit for the day. This morning it didn't pop up either for my one bid. I'm wondering whether it's not offered when you rebid on the same item the second time after being outbid???? Anyone know????

I'm going to need a folder pretty soon to keep track of all the paper entries from Hallmark stores and the print outs from ebay for the last week!

Interesting bunch of videos here! When I asked for the video, she said they had them behind the counter and would give it to me when I checked out with the other stuff I was buying. Then she just slipped it in, without telling me if I had a choice or not.

I had to fill out a form with my name, address & phone number for it. She started to staple the whole folder to the form, but then I showed her where it said all they were to get was the coupon, so I could use the other thing for the ebay thing that hasn't started yet.

I was happy to see it wasn't Gulliver's Travels with Ted Danson, we got that at the KOCC convention years ago. What I got as my video was Alice in Wonderland, a much better choice.

I wonder if Hallmark sent stores a box of videos for this promotion, or if they just used overstock that they already had.

We too won a video. We had a meeting at the allmark store and I asked about it. I didn't have my coupon with me. They said it was "Gulliver's Travels." I thought it was a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. THose are really good. I am picking it up tonight. OUr store is having a special party tonight for the invitation holders so I don't have to go tomorrow.

I don't know about what other magazines there in, but I just found one of those "Hallmark Sweepstakes" card in next week's issue of TV Guide. I opened it up and found out that I had won a Hallmark video too! I'm so happy, I plan to redeem it tommorrow at the "Open House" event.

Sue, I only bought 2 magazines, Dec.Good Housekeeping and Nov.18 People, I THINK it was in the Good Housekeeping! I always go thru magazines and rip those annoying cardboard ads out and then I noticed the Hallmark one! So, guess they're not ALL annoying!!

Yes. I got one in a magazine that arrived in the mail last week. I'll be bringing the video coupon with me this weekend to Open House, to see if they know about it.

I wonder if the video will be OUR choice, or THEIR choice. I hope it's our choice.

I bought 2 magazines that had the coupon and one also had a little brochure called "play the hallmark keepsake sweepstakes". It has a numbered game piece to check while watching shows on the Hallmark channel. And the "instant win" tab revealed I won a Hallmark video! anyone else get one?

Thanks for the heads up on the free ornament! I got my Better Homes and Gardens magazine to day and immediately looked for the coupon! Is this a special one not shown in the Dream book? I looked but did not see it..wondered if it was added later? Can we use this along with getting the VIP bag? Seems like it should be OK, as the VIP card doesn't say cannot be used with any other promotion.

I found the December issue of Redbook in Barnes and Noble Bookstore, so if you try a major book store retailer, you might have more luck. The ad for Hallmark and the coupon insert is located on page 24 of December Redbook. It is a bright red cover with a picture of Shania. Good Luck to all!

I couldn't find the coupon in the NOVEMBER issue ROSIE, Parenting, or REDBOOK.

I didn't see in DECEMBER issues out at the store yet. Do you know what page it is on?

If you bring up the Hallmark sight, just put - free coupons - in the search area, the post for the ornament will show up and you will see a picture of the ornament with a list of the magazines where they can be found.

Hey everyone, I went on a search for this coupon in one of the magazines listed at our Barnes & Noble Bookstore here, and found the coupon in the December issue of Redbook! I even had my hubby helping me search through a big stack of magazines. We left Barnes & Noble right then to purhase an ornament for $7.99 so I could get my Family Tree "free" ornament. It is really nice, and was glad that it was not offered before like last year!

I received mine today as well. If they are going to entice me by sending me a free ornament, I would have to know what it looks like first. Thanks for the heads up JeepGirl!

Wow! That is a good price ($13.98) for a subscription with a free gift subscription too AND the ornament. I have been a subscriber for years and just got my renewal and it is $26 (with a free gift subscription too but no ornament)!

Yes, I said a free Hallmark ornament. My sister called me this morning and told me about a card that was in her Reader's Digest, to get a free Hallmark ornament. I went to the website she gave me. It is true, but its when you give a gift subscription you get the free ornament. Does anyone know which ornament it is?
