I’m excited to share with you my Customer Reward program for all my loyal customers. You will earn a “punch” for every $40 that you spend (before tax & shipping) and when you have collected 10 punches, you will receive a free item from any current catalog, up to a $40 value!  (shipped directly to you, includes FREE shipping!)

Here are all the details:
  • You’ll earn one punch for every $40 in Stampin’ Up! Product that you order (before tax and shipping), but you may not combine orders to get a punch. For example: If you order $79, you only get one punch and the leftover amount does not carry over. If you order $81, you get two punches.
