Boxes of chocolates aren't just for your sweetheart on Valentine's Day. EBillme is also confessing its adoration for its customers by offering a tantalizing treat.
Until Feb. 14, 2008, every shopper who uses eBillme (www.ebillme.com) to check out at certain retail Web sites will receive a free 8 oz. box of Harry London assorted gourmet dark chocolate truffles.
These delectable delights are made exclusively for eBillme merchants and customers. And you don't have to keep it for yourself. Shoppers will receive a special order form via e-mail, in which they can write a personal note to their Valentine.
Each box, including the personal note, will be shipped by 1-800-Flowers.com Inc. to anywhere in the continental United States. So, if a box of confections ends up on your doorstep, just make sure your fingers aren't sticky - your keyboard is on a sugar-free diet.
