Being Resourceful

A Savvy Shopper's Guide to Bargains, Deals, & Freebies

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.

$1.99 & FREE shipping for custom photo notepad May 25, 2010

Father’s Day is coming up, and I’m all about resourceful, useful gifts! ArtsCow is making its foray into custom stationery goods, so here’s your chance to create a custom photo notepad (3.75×3.75″) for just $1.99 and FREE shipping!

This would look really cool on Dad’s desk at the office (or on my desk at home!), and would be a great way for him to remember his loved ones while checking off his to-do list. Hop on over to ArtsCow (click here) and use code MEMO199 at checkout. The photo to the left is just an example — the design options are only limited by your imagination!

Another great use for this deal? End-of-year teacher gifts!

Expires: 5/31/2010 and please note that due to anticipated levels of sale, the offer price will be limited to the first 100 memo pads per day due to production restrictions.

This sweet deal for 3 FREE 5×7″ folded greeting cards from Shutterfly expires TODAY, so get a move on it! I’ve used this deal in the past and LOVED the results — completely personalized photo cards perfect for any occasion. I tend to use Shutterfly’s custom photo cards for “thinking of you” notes that I love to send, especially to my grandparents who turn 95 this year. What better way to send a photo AND a greeting at the same time?

To get your 3 FREE folded custom photo cards from Shutterfly, first go to Shutterfly and log in. (If you’re one of the remaining handful of people who don’t yet have a Shutterfly account, you can get 50 FREE 4×6″ prints by creating an account!) Scroll to the bottom of the page, and in the last horizontal box, click “Enter Special Offer Code” — it is the last link in that box. Enter code 3FREECARDS. Create your cards, then choose to apply the code to your order at checkout.

Note that you’ll still need to pay shipping, but that’s a whopping 99cents on the cards that are valued at $5.97!
