3 FREE Custom Photo Cards August 31, 2010

photo cardThere’s nothing like getting a personalized greeting card in the mail. Someone took the time to pick out a card for you, sign it (maybe even write a note in there!), address it, stamp it, and mail it — so much more effort than a simple email! Here’s a way to make THREE FREE custom photo cards in under 5 minutes (plus about $2.97 shipping & tax). That’s less time and cost than it takes to zip to the grocery store!

Just hop on over to Shutterfly to upload your photo(s) and create your cards. Enter code SUMMERCARDS at checkout to score this deal. Their cards are normally about $2.99 each, so you’ll save about $9 with this code!

You can make one card and print three of it (the fastest way to go; you’ll need to save 3 versions of the card — just rename it — then add them to your shopping cart) or mix and match three different cards. Think about upcoming birthdays. Who do you have embarrassing photos of? Or perhaps thank you cards for upcoming holidays.  I love making “thinking of you” or blank cards to have custom photo note cards to use for any occasion!

One more thing! GRANDPARENTS DAY is September 12th! Make cards (go to “Everyday Occasions” and choose from their designs) for those deserving grandparents!

Expires: Hurry! This expires TOMORROW, September 1, 2010.

Thanks, “Cents”able Momma!

 

30 FREE 4×6″ photos from Snapfish June 2, 2010

How do I love this deal? Let me count the ways…

(1) 30 FREE 4×6″ photos, (2) from Snapfish, a reputable, reliable printer, (3) you don’t have to be a new member, (4) shipping for my 30 FREE 4×6″ photos was just $2.46, (5) my tax was 12cents, and (6) the photos will be shipped straight to my grandparents across the country in Virginia! For a grand total of $2.58 out the door (when I used code TRAVEL30PRINTS), that was one DARN GOOD deal!

Enough said.

Thanks, RetailMeNot!

I love giving baby gifts to those who are about to be first-time grandparents. They need fun books on hand too!
