Record Personalized Holiday Greetings With Vello {$50 Gift Card Giveaway}


I am excited to Introduce you to Vello, a fun new app that allows you to create personalized group video greetings to make celebrating your family and friends events personal and thoughtful but convenient at the same time. Vello was created by the same team who brought you CardSwap, the site where you can buy and sell gift cards to all major retailers, collect points and save money. (Keep reading for a chance to win a $50 gift card from them!)

With Vello you can record a 6-second video clip and then invite friends and family to record a clip and add into your greeting.  Vello stitches everything together and then sends it to the selected recipient. They will then get to see all of their friends and family in one happy video greeting, it doesn’t matter where they live or how far away they all are!

Vello is perfect for the holiday season as you can invite your family and friends to record a holiday greeting with you. A special way to feel closer to loved ones if they are in different cities.

I had a chance to try out the app and I love how easy it was to record my own greeting and to get started by following the simple steps. Just hold to record and you are ready to rock, you can even “rehearse” your video before you record the real video you are going to use.

Using Vello I created a holiday greeting for all of you. You can see the video below, including and additional greeting from CardSwap!

Something else that I really like about Vello is that you can also send an e-gift card along with the video, directly from the app. Wouldn’t that be perfect this holiday season?


Win it: One lucky Canadian reader will WIN a $50 credit from CardSwap! They can use it to purchase a gift card or cards to major retailers in the country for less!

Here is how to enter:

Just download the Vello app (it’s FREE to download HERE) and try it out. Create a personal greeting or add your greeting to my video above using video code 23PSZL

After you download the app and create a greeting just come back here and enter via Rafflecopter below, that’s all! Super easy right?

Good luck!
