    i'm just curious as to how many of you have received christmas bonuses from customers. also, how many of you send out cards or even small gifts? either to all customers, or to any for that matter. i have a few 'favorite' customers that i may send gift certificates to because they have been so good to me, not only about paying on time etc, but they give me great referals, and plenty of biz....i'd just like your thoughts. thanks :drinkup:
  2. We send cards and get cards from some.
    I do something when I get refferal at that time.

    I send out Christmas cards, but I have never recieved one back, or any bonus for that matter. But, this Christmas will be my third Christmas with most of my customers, so maybe things will be different this year. payup

    We send out cards and give small poinsettias to some of our customers. We get cards and bonuses back from alot of the same people.

    I send cards to all customers thanking them for their business through the year. I don't expect any bonuses so when I do get one, it is a nice surprise.
  8. So all of your customers celabrate X-Mas?

    I have a good percentage of Jewish, a very small % of Indian, and others whom do not.

    Holiday Cards, New Years Cards.

    Man I can't believe it is just October 3rd and I am reading about damn Christmas already. It aint Holloween yet, nor Thanks Giving.
