Why did I receive a charge from Hallmark.com for $1?

Thank you for your inquiry about the recent authorization that appeared on your bank statement. 
As a result of how we securely handle future credit card transactions for our ecard subscribers, it was 
necessary for us to validate your payment information. To accomplish this, an authorization for $1 
and a reversal of that authorization were processed on the same day within a few minutes of each 
other. There will be no collection of this authorization. You will receive communication near the end 
of the term of your subscription to remind you of the upcoming automatic renewal. We apologize for 
any inconvenience that our processing has caused you.
