Introduction: Hello Readers,  let me introduce myself. My name is Crystal Stewart and I was blessed and feel honored to be a guest writer on The Recipe Hunter. I want to thank The Recipe Hunter for letting me share my experiences, traditions and a recipe or two. I have 2 websites. My site links are CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)
My Experiences With Omaha Steaks:
Let’s start with my experiences with Omaha Steaks. My Family and I tried some food from Omaha Steaks and we were not only pleasantly surprised but impressed how good the food was. We liked Omaha Steaks food so much we continued to get their food every-now- and-then since it was so good. There sales representatives are helpful and understanding and the shipping department is good too. We usually get our food either 1 day early or just right on time. Of course everything depends on what the weather is
A Little About Omaha Steaks:
A few years ago, my family and I decided to try a food place and see what it is like. As it turns out the food from Omaha Steaks was very good. Don’t let the name fool you because they have a lot more food other than different kinds of steaks. In fact, Omaha Steaks has everything from chocolates to steak. Also they have Pet Treats, wine and gift baskets too. Their packages our good and they have some packages that you can buy and a certain amount will go to charity. Another thing that Omaha Steaks has and that I really like is that you can sign up for their rewards program. When you sign up for their rewards program, you can earn points every time you buy from them and there are other ways to earn points too. You see the points you earn is for free food. I am a member and I can’t tell you how much money I saved with my points. I just love it.
How A Tradition Was Started:
I was Christmas shopping for my sisters and a few years ago and was at a loss what to get them. So I went to mom to get some ideas from her and see what she had to say. It was then we remembered that we had ordered from Omaha Steaks different times at our house and their food was absolutely delicious. It was then I decided to get each of my sisters a Omaha Steaks package and start my own Sisterly tradition.
Results:
After my sisters received their food from Omaha Steaks, I got told that it was the best present I could have got them. They wanted it every year. My first tradition that I started as a sister and it was a success. Now I not only buy Omaha Steaks for Christmas but sometimes for their anniversaries. They just love that. Omaha Steaks customer service is excellent.
