How to be rich in the Realm
At both Beardsgaard Barbers and River Peak Apothecary (sibling shoppes right next door to each other), we love to reward you for doing the things you were doing anyway. Whether you shop us online from the far flung corners of the globe, or you pop by in person, the Realm has rewards waiting for you.
Rewards programs can be excellent fun, but they can also be trifle boring. Spend, get, redeem, blah blah blah. So we decided to gamify things a bit. As is tradition.
In our version, you go on Quests, earn Gold, and then receive Redemptions. Some quests even change periodically, so be sure to check back to see moar ways to earn. Read on for more details.
THE TRADING CARD GAME
Anumber of us at Beardsgaard Barbers and River Peak Apothecary grew up on a magical card game. Now that we're all grown up with the Adobe Creative Suite, we went and made our own, so you can collect all of our products, scents, even staff and shop dogs!
Collect trading cards and trade them in for a Realm of the Bearded T-Shirt. Gotta catch em all, eh? Read on for the rules.
Explore all the ways one can be rich in the realm by clicking the Earn Rewards tab, or by logging into your account, as illustrated right below. From gold on your birthday, to gold for telling a friend about this place o' preciousesss, to gold for buying the things you wanted to get anyway, there is no risk, and literally all of the rewards.
THE TRADING CARD GAME
You can get trading cards many different ways! Get World Items deck cards like Beard Oil, Scrub or Candle by buying those River Peak Apothecary products. So long as you're getting those cards, you will also get Lands & Realms deck cards like Dragonsea, Strongfell, or whatever scent you chose.
Everyone who works at either Beardsgaard or the Apothecary has trading cards too! If you interact with one of them, even if they were not the one who provided you with service, ask for their trading card and ye shall receive. There are even some heroic Gaardians who (as part of a fundraiser) became their own trading cards in the Alternate Realms deck.
Collect any 12 individual trading cards from any deck and trade them in for your choice of in-shoppe T-shirt at either shop. No duplicates accepted in a 12 pack, BUT! If you have duplicates, that's what trading with others is for, either with fellow shopper friends, or fellow clients waiting for haircuts at Beardsgaard.
HOW TO CASH IN YOUR CARDS
Bring your cards to the front desk where we will hole punch the corner of each card, and you can pick your shirt in shoppe!
Mail your cards to the following address with your choice of shirt size (S-3X) and color (grey, forest & teal).
