Why I Love Shutterfly

I’m not sure how it happened, but I’ve recently become the “go-to” girl in the family for making photo books. Perhaps it’s my love of detail and the endless personal touches one can add to a photo book (not to mention how much quicker I can make one as opposed to traditional scrapbooking methods), but I don’t really mind being “the one” to help get photo books made. I love putting them together (Maybe I that needs to be my next job? Getting paid to make people photo books?), and I’m happy to help anyone who asks.

I know there are tons of companies out there to choose from when it comes to printing photos and making photo gifts, but I always end up choosing Shutterfly. One of my favorite things about this company is the quality of their products, but they also sell me on their price point. In fact, I think I may have paid full price for 1 or 2 photo books out of the 6 I’ve made over the last few years. There is usually a code out there somewhere, whether it be in an email or on a blog, that will get you a something free or discounted.

I was able to get my “family” photo book (11×12…one of the larger sizes) for free all because I entered Coke Rewards codes (just had to pay shipping).


And I got 30% off of my girls’ “first year” books because I kept the offer code Shutterfly sent me in the mail when I ordered their birth announcements. IMG_1537So see? Shutterfly is a win-win for everyone. In fact, if you’re looking to get some high quality prints made this summer, they’re offering 100 FREE prints to all customers who enter the code ‘100FREEPRINTS’ by June 30th. When you sign up for a free Shutterfly account, you typically get 50 free prints for being a new customer, but everyone can use the ‘100FREEPRINTS’ code to benefit from this deal.

Offer expires 6/30/2015 (11:59 P.M. PT). Offer is good for 100 free 4×6 prints through shutterfly.com or our mobile-friendly site. Offer cannot be redeemed more than once per account and/or billing address. Taxes, shipping and handling will apply. Not valid on other sizes, other products, prepaid plans, prior purchases, orders placed for in-store pick up and purchases made on the Shutterfly apps. Cannot be redeemed for cash or combined with other offers or credits. Not valid for resale.
