Shutterfly 40% off Photo Books

I always seem to notice these deals last minute! I love making photo books and if you do, too, here is a great deal for 40% off from Shutterfly. Simply upload the pics, make your book and place the order before Wednesday night at 11:59 p.m. and you will get 40% off.


One idea from a friend of mine is to pre-make your photo books and save them. Then, when one of these sales come along (as they tend to do about every six weeks or so), you can simply order it then. For me, the hard part is making the book, which ironically, is very easy to make. Sometimes getting started is the worst! The books are easy to make- you just choose a style, upload the pics and the software loads the photos for you in order. If you wish to make the book fancier or more personalized, you certainly may; I’ve gone both ways- simple or fancier and honestly, I was always pleased with both.


To redeem, type the code “BOOK40″ at checkout. The code can be used once per account, per person.

Free Hardcover Photo Book

Here comes another great photo book deal, this time even better than the last one I posted! As a bonus, I am giving you THREE days to complete it this time, rather than one day like I did last time.


Go to Shutterfly’s website, create an 8×8 hardcover book, and when you pay enter the promo code: RXV4-CV37-9YZR-YUN31Z

This is a value of up to $29.99- great deal! You will have to pay shipping, but I recall it being less than $10. I plan on doing one to highlight my children’s photos that they recently took. It’s very easy to upload photos from your computer and Shutterfly does most of the work, arranging the pictures for you. If you choose to customize it or add text, that is more work, but still not too bad.
Be sure to order the right size and type- 8×8 hardcover, or you may not get the promotional pricing. Deadline is Wednesday, August 24th, so don’t delay too long!

Great Deal on Photo Books Buy 1 Get 2!

I love photo books! In the back of my mind, I have a dream of doing a beautiful scrapbook for each of my three children. Since that dream won’t be a reality for a while, in the mean time I am doing photo books! I have ordered them from Shutterfly and Snapfish and was happy with the results from both companies. Simply upload your photos from your computer, memory card or camera and the company arranges them into a beautiful photo book for you. 


When my eight month old was born, we made him one. We also did one for Christmas and fall, highlighting all of the fun events that took place during that time. My children absolutely love looking through the photo books! You can also add text to each page to narrate your photos, as well as a title on the front page. There are also many different backgrounds and themes to choose from. If you don’t like the order that the company puts your photos in, you can change it. You can also change the size of the photos, etc. I love how flexible they are; if you like the way the computer made it, you can’t order it as is, but if not, you can change what you’d like.


Right now, Snapfish is running a crazy deal- buy two photo books and get one free! They can all be the same photo book (in case you want multiple copies to give to friends or family) or they can be different photo books (in case you have three different events that you want to make separate photo books for). Shipping is extra, but reasonable.


To get this deal, go to Snapfish and when you checkout enter the code: MYSUMMERBKS
