Thanks to a brilliant merging of the minds at Hersheyâ€™s and The Styles Check Company, you can now broadcast your love of confections to any and everyone with whom you dare to share your wealth. Your landlord? Check. The phone company? Check. Your impossible-to-shop-for nephew whose birthday is just around the corner? Check! Forget online bill pay â€“ writing checks is back and better than ever! (And youâ€™ll be doubly excited to drop those babies in the mail when you see the matching address labels.)
One box of single checks contains four classic candy wrapper designs: Hersheyâ€™s Milk Chocolate (can you imagine the fun of paying for a single Hersheyâ€™s Milk Chocolate bar with a Hersheyâ€™s Milk Chocolate bar check?!), Mr. Goodbar, Krackel, and Reeseâ€™s Peanut Butter Cups, and sells for $15.95. First-time customers, however, pay only $9.95 and can get a second box for only $0.49 (and why wouldnâ€™t you?). And if you go for the whole sweet shebang â€“ 2 boxes of checks, 1 set of labels, and a Hersheyâ€™s leather checkbook cover â€“ you save $5.00 at checkout.
With the standard shipping and handling fees, you canâ€™t get out of there for less than $18.95, but your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed by the company, and Dana Michaels of 123 Any Street, Anytown, U.S.A. sure seemed satisfied, as her name was all over these goodies as well as the available matching Contact Cards.
Intrigued but not quite sold? The Styles Check Company also offers a line of Hersheyâ€™s Kisses checks and accessories (of which Dana Michaels is also a fan). I canâ€™t wait till I get through this box of â€œretro graphicâ€ Iâ€™m stuck with, so I can join the fun. (Only 176 more to go! Maybe theyâ€™ll expand to include my personal favorites â€“ Twizzlers and York Peppermint Patties â€“ by then.) Overnight shipping is available, too â€“ in case rent is due tomorrow.
