    Default Please help- card question

    Please advise me on what the most cost efficient way to order cards would be...

    I am not super picky about designs or styles but I do like the Shutterfly templates. I will need to order around 100 cards. I have a $50 tiny prints offer, and $25 at Shutterfly plus free shipping. I have one from Kelloggís and also one from maybe carters?? Iím assuming they canít be stacked but not sure. I donít want to spend a long time making a card and then go to order it and none of the offers work or that it would end up being ridiculously expensive. I would like to keep costs as low as I can. Iím kicking myself for not buying anything on Black Friday like last year. Last year we had a nice photo and went with the Groupon staples deal and was fine with that. This year we donít have a photo and I am resigning to using several from through the year.

    Any advice? Iím just a little overwhelmed by this process right now and any ideas from you savvy shoppers would help! Thanks!!

    Costco has some fine designs. Theyíre photo cards are bigger than most Shutterfly ones and on nicer paper than the cheap Shutterfly ones. $15 for 50 then $5 more per 25 increments.
    Their nicer cards (on card stock) are $34.50 for 50 (I donít know how much extras cost).
    So, if it doesnít have to be Shutterfly and you have Costco, Buy there.

    Shutterfly has been a pia lately not letting codes stack. It wouldn't even let me use a Groupon (which should be treated like a form of payment) with free shipping, and the shipping is outrageous! I got cards from Paper Culture this year (stacked a Groupon with a 50% off promotion.) Not sure that's your cheapest option though and I only needed 2 dozen.

    Costco prices are great. For the fancy type, Costco is $70 for 100. That includes envelopes with return address on them. Plus they have double sided cards, and on the back you can have photos or writing (or combo) on the back of many designs. The regular photo cards are very inexpensive. They are big and have high quality paper for the price.

    Darn, no Costco. But that does sound like a good deal! Thanks!

    I was tempted to revert to how things used to be before fancy photo cards. a 4x6 inside of a regular card- which you can buy boxes of cheap still.

    It looks like you can still get the Staples deal. 100 cards are $25.

    And it looks like they have designs with multiple photos, so you can still use several images.

    Zazzle Groupon is still available, they have a lot of great options for multiple photos.

    For the Shutterfly part of it - the TinyPrints $50 can only be used on TP cards - I got 20 cards with it. You should be able to use the free shipping code that you have from Kelloggs though with the 50 - OR you can save that to use with shutterfly, get $10 more in cards, and use TPSHIP for free tiny prints shipping.
    You could probably get 25 Shutterfly cards with your $25 code.
    Here are freebies you can use with your $25 and free shipping
    KOHLSLABELS free address labels - expires tonight!
    PRINTS (50 prints)
    5FVE43GJW83 (gives 50 prints)
    card4u - one free card

    even if you don't use shutterfly for your cards, you should take advantage of the free shipping code to get the freebies above and you could also use your $25 code towards anything at Shutterfly - doesn't have to be cards.

    (and yes, I'm crazy)

    Anyone have a Shutterfly Free Ship or $25 off code they're not going to use? (sorry to hijack!)
