Stuff Your Stockings With BAM Brands ‘Beauty!’


Stuff Your Stockings With BAM Brands ‘Beauty!’


We are on the one-week countdown to Christmas Eve everybody, and one of the biggest stories out there right now is that the ‘gift card’ is back with a vengeance this year! Yes, there are iPhones, iPods, iPots and iPans – whatever all that digital technology is, but it is the gift card that can not only buy those things, but also provide your loved ones with the coolest and most exciting products and services on the market – the products and services that come from BAM Brands! Let me explain…


Holiday shoppers want to give the ‘best’ gift, but like most of us who are trying like heck to figure out what our family members want, it is the ‘trusty’ shelves of gift cards that we all flock to when we hit the store. And, no, this is NOT a ‘cold’ gift. It is truly the only gift to give so that your loved ones can end up with the item they most want to have that you never would have even thought of buying!


Seeing as that the National Retail Federation’s Holiday Consumer Intentions and Actions survey (whew…long name), said that “holiday shoppers are expected to spend $27.8 billion on gift cards this year,” it’s time we sit and chat about the ‘best of the best.’


Approximately 80% of all holiday shoppers are headed out to purchase gift cards, and they will be spending even more on the gift cards this time around. Whereas gift cards come in the form of $20.00 and up, most shoppers (and, yes, even with the economic pain), are choosing gift cards in the $40-60 range. And their reasoning for gift cards, believe it or not, is NOT convenience. It is actually love: They want a way where their family members can choose exactly what they want, because it’s far more thoughtful than just grabbing something off the shelf.


HOWEVER…consumers should always know that gift cards are only as good as the companies that issue them. From sales tax implications to expiration dates, gift cards need to be the ‘best’ in order for them to be a great gift for the ones you love! Companies even have a way to score gift cards (of course, in this digital world that scores literally everything, that’s not a big surprise.) Scores can range from zero-to-100 on retailers throughout the U.S., but I am here to tell you to stop worrying about those numbers because listed below are the only gift cards to stuff into those stockings. These are the cards that give all of your family members the chance to accumulate the unique and innovative products that the companies of BAM Brands provide.


Let’s start with the American Express Gift Card (AXP). It’s American Express, guys. “You Don’t Leave Home Without It” because, well…you don’t want to. This is one card that knows what they’re doing. Now think about getting that AXP gift card for your best friend or your next door neighbor who is dying to get a spray tan that will have them looking like a beach-going ‘babe’ instead of a prom date for a vampire. With the AXP, they can set up a date at Spray La Vie. They can use that card to get the best products and ultimate services that Spray La Vie provides. Why? Because it is THE card that works just like your debit card or cash.


Yes, American Express still charges a $3.95 purchase fee for the ‘privilege,’ but that fee makes sure that no more fees are given to the xist fitness 2shopper. These e-cards now have no expiration dates or monthly fees, and the receiver of your gift knows that they can replace lost, stolen or damaged cards for free. From $25 to $3,000 on one card, this is the cash that will allow them to enjoy the benefits and beauty that Spray La Vie – just ONE of the BAM Brands franchises – has to offer.


Now…your child, Mom, even YOU want to walk into your local TAN Company and purchase the tanning products they have. You want to sit in that calm atmosphere and receive a touch-up that can not be rivaled by any other tanning salon. Therefore, if you want something even prettier than the AXP, a Visa gift card can allow your friends and family to head to The TAN Company website and find locales and search a huge list of products that can not be beat. Another card that works just like cash that can allow The TAN Company to be a part of your Christmas holiday cheer!


Here, I want to mention ‘The Gap’ gift card. Why is that? ‘The Gap’ isn’t a BAM Brands franchise. Not at all. I mention it because your family member will need that card in order to head out and buy brand new clothes that they’ve always wanted. BECAUSE of the fact that they found Xist Fitness – a gym that is beyond incredible that the entire nation is talking about. They joined Xist Fitness (which IS a BAM brand, by the way), and they have been losing pounds and getting healthy. Therefore, they HAVE to have that ‘Gap’ gift card in order to purchase brand new clothes to fit their awesome new forms! Oh, yeah, you should also think about adding a Banana Republic gift card to the stocking, too. After all, they’ve been working out at Xist Fitness and deserve a whole new wardrobe!


Now we come to the best gift card of all time, and it is most definitely given by one of the most incredible BAM Brands companies out there. I speak of MassageLuxe/FaceLuXe. I am speaking about a company that offers stress-free, tension-free surroundings that will have your loved one enjoying absolute heaven on earth when the Christmas mania winds down. And if you buy right NOW, you can receive a Gift Certificate for a 15-minute HydroLuXe Massage session!


The ‘LuXe’ gift cards are available in a variety of amounts from $75 to $200 dollars, and are literally the one stocking suffer that will Massage Luxe 2-Faceluxe-spa-franchisehave you loved ones screaming with delight! They even come in a sleek gift card box for an extra $6.00 so that there’s no wrapping required at all! They simply open the box and learn that they’ve won a gift card to Paradise!


So in the end, each and every one of these gift cards is the perfect way to say ‘I Love You.’ Your family can head straight to the Web or straight to the storefront and lose themselves in the BAM Brands promise: Complete and Utter Christmas Cheer!
