Shop jcpenny With Their New Secret Santa Tags! #jcpSecretSanta

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 8:50 AM
Going shopping for the holidays can get pretty dare I say boring and repetitive. Drive, walk around, buy, walk more, drive home, blah blah blah. Well recently I was asked to participate in a fun new shopping experience jcpenny has created this season - Santa Tags.
So thanks to jcpenny and Mom Central I get to participate in the Secret Santa Tags Blog Tour. As part of the program, not only was I able to try out the new Secret Santa Tag for myself, but I was able to be a “Secret Santa” and pick out a gift from jcp.com for a fellow blogger also participating in the tour.
Next week I am reveal who my Secret Santa is but not just yet because it's still a secret! jcp.com made it really easy with a Best Gifts link directly on their site that will take you to gifts under $20, under $50, under $100 or over $100.

So what you do is grab this hand-dandy QR tag when you're shopping in store, purchase your gift and have it wrapped. Now this is the part where you will need a smart phone that had a QR code scanner - scan the QR code and enter your phone number in the space provided. Moments later you will get a phone call from the Secret Santa line and there you get to record a (short) message to the person you are gifting! The QR gets stuck to the gift and you send it away.
The gift receiver won't know who sent them the gift until they scan the barcode and hear the message! It's such a fun and creative way to give and receive!
The Santa Tag is so great and I love the personal touch it adds to each gift you send this year. Your gift recipients will be so delighted too, I just know it!
Still confused on how it "works" check out this video and you'll see how easy it really is.

And remember stay tuned because next week I'll reveal who had me as a Secret Santa, who I had as a Secret Santa and of course what I got from them. I hope I am getting this cute little red dress number I was eyeing!

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of jcpenney and received a jcpenney Secret Santa gift and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
