Holiday Cards for the Ambitious

Are you one of THOSE people? You know who you are. The ones who have their Christmas cards in the mail the day after Thanksgiving. The ones who remind the rest of us that indeed, whether we like it or not, the holiday season is upon us and we are already behind!!!

Well, even if you haven't even thought about it until now, here are some deals and sites to get you started on your merry card making.

GOOD FOR TODAY ONLY: Valley Daily Deals has teamed up with Milestone Memories to offer 60% off for a Holiday Memory Package (redeem by November 16, 2011). For $90, photographer Michelle will provide:

  • One hour Outdoor Family Photo Shoot (up to 6 members)
  • Digital Files on Disc for personal use & re-prints
  • 50 photocards with photo of choice
If you've already got your family photo (the only one where everyone is actually looking at the camera), and you just need to print them out:

COSTCO has a great photo center. Of course, you have to be a member. But you can't beat the price, and the instant gratification. You can design and order online, then pick up in a store near you. I also like Costco's photo cards because the envelopes are foil-lined and don't look cheap. Right now, Costco's coupon book offers $5 off 50 photo greeting cards through November 28th!

WALMART is another great option if you're on a budget. The photo cards start at $0.28. You also have the option of picking up in store, but right now, they are offering free shipping on all greeting cards to your home.

Strictly online photo services like Snapfish and are more expensive sometimes, but they are always having sales. Right now Snapfish is offering 25% off cards with a coupon code MERRY2010. They are also doing a daily deal, where they throw in free product. Today is a free flip book. Shutterfly has 20% off all holiday cards through November 17th and free shipping on orders over $30 with the code SHIP30.

Look for free shipping, which can make a big difference in what you end up spending on your cards, especially since you'll have to spring for postage on top of what you pay for the cards. is offering free shipping on all items and Christmas cards are 50% off. Right now Vistaprint is offering free shipping on orders of $19.99 or more. This expires 11/18/2010.
