50% OFF MyPublisher gift cards – awesome custom photo books on the cheap! May 8, 2010

Oooh! I am SO excited to share this deal with you because it is seriously amazing and it will save you BIG $$ on custom photo books from MyPublisher. First, let me tell you I was floored the first time my friend Christine (the guru of photo books) showed me a book she made using MyPublisher. It was simply gorgeous. Rather than scrapping her family’s vacations and events (or letting those photos just sit forever on her computer), she makes photo books. I’m now an addict!

So, what’s the big deal about THIS deal? When you use code MOMGIFT through tomorrow (5/9/10), you’ll save 50% OFF MyPublisher gift certificates. So, spend $25 and get $50, spend $50 and get $100, and so forth. What makes this a REALLY big deal is that there are always buy-one-get-one-FREE codes floating around (such as PHOTO241 — expiration date unknown; found by just Googling for “mypublisher code”) so that you can always get 2 copies of your MyPublisher book for the price of one.

Not familiar with MyPublisher? Well, my hard-cover photobooks usually end up being about $40 each, then I use a BOGO code, so they’re $20 each. If I use this deal, they’ll come out to costing about $10 each. WOW! And, who says you have to buy the gift certificates for someone else? Be a smart cookie and buy them for YOURSELF!

Here’s a tip… I often make MyPublisher photo books after we’ve visited family, then use a BOGO code to print two copies. You should have heard the delight in my grandparents’ voices on the phone when they received their copy of the book from our visit!

Expires: Gift certificate deal expires tomorrow, 5/9/10. BOGO code’s expiration is unknown.


100 FREE 4×6″ prints from Snapfish January 24, 2010

100 FREE 4×6″ prints from Snapfish! Chances are, you have some photos hanging around on your computer or camera that you’d like to get printed, but why work your home printer to death? Use this deal from Snapfish to get 100 FREE prints with ANY purchase.

The only catch is that this deal is for mail-delivery only (not in-store pick-up), so you’ll have to pay shipping, but that’s less than $5 for the 100 prints. U.S. customers only.  Offer may not be used in conjunction with any other offer.

As for the other item to purchase? There are oodles to choose from! The least expensive option would be to order a single 4×6″ print, so your photo order totals 101 prints, but surely you can be more creative than that. Remember, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re thinking about a photo gift, now is the time to get it ordered!

Use code PRINTSNEW for your 100 FREE 4×6″ prints at check-out!
