With the magic of the holidays comes a certain feeling of nervousness. Do you remember anxious moments as a child wondering whether you were on Santa’s “naughty or nice” list? Did you worry that by the time you got to December, there was very little you could do to change the outcome?
The good news is, now that you’re grown, you can make that choice for yourself. And, as a card-carrying adult, you can choose to engage with the holidays any way you wish. (No more being forced to attend your younger sibling’s elementary school play!)
So whether you decide to show the spirit of the season online or by heading to the Dallas Arts District to marvel at our holiday LED-lights display, Reliant is there for you.
Are you naughty or nice?
Turns out it’s not just the big guy at the North Pole who knows these things. Through December we’ve brought back our Naughty or Nice* campaign.
Feeling naughty? Choose this Reliant Secure Advantage® 12 plan and receive a $200 Reliant Visa® prepaid card. Feeling nice? Choose this Reliant Secure Advantage® 12 plan and you’ll receive a $100 Reliant Visa® prepaid card and have a $100 donation made to the Salvation Army. We promise not to tell which one you choose!
Earlier this year, Reliant presented the Salvation Army with a check for $50,600, made possible in part through Reliant customers picking the “nice” option during last year’s holiday season.
Holiday yarns worth spinning
Speaking of the Salvation Army, another way we support this organization is through Knit the Season. Upon visiting our holiday microsite, you’re greeted by familiar faces sitting in rocking chairs with their knitting needles: Dallas Cowboy Jason Witten, pro footballer J.J. Watt, and pro basketballer Patrick Beverley. These three virtual athletes have set aside their gear to encourage everyone to create the ugliest holiday sweater online.
For every sweater virtually knitted and shared on social media, Reliant will donate $1 to the Salvation Army – up to $10,000 – and also add the hashtag #ReliantHoliday to each social post to help spread the holiday cheer.
Reliant Lights Your Holidays
If you haven’t had time to think about the holidays yet, a quick way to get into the spirit of the season is to head to AT&T Performing Arts Center in the Dallas Arts District. There you’ll see a dazzling display of more than half a million lights, illuminating a festive scene available for viewing every night until January 2016.
Although that’s a lot of lights to turn on all at once, there’s no need to worry: Every light used in our display is a LED bulb that consumes around 90 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. This technology has improved significantly over the years as its popularity has grown. As a result, LEDs now emit the same warm glow as incandescent lights and have become less expensive. Couple these benefits with their energy savings, and it’s easy to see why LEDs are better than traditional bulbs.
So although we can’t promise relief from holiday music overload or too much turkey, we’ve made it easy to get in the spirit of the season however you wish. To find out what else we’re up to through the end of the year, we encourage you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
