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.

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!
