Top Deals on Photo Christmas Cards

If you have ever staged a sibling and doggie Christmas Card photo shoot, you fully grasp the expression, “Blood, Sweat and Tears.”  We spent last Sunday morning staging our Christmas card photo.  I’m proud to say that no one was injured, and we are still married. (Shout out to our next door neighbor for pretending to not hear all the yelling.)

As I was frantically uploading the photos and making our Christmas card on Shutterfly around 11:30PM Monday night, trying to finish up and redeem the 50% off Cyber Monday deal before midnight, I stopped.  $55 plus tax & shipping for 40 Christmas cards?  And these were not the fancy, sugarplum fairy-coated, heavy cardstock cards; these were standard 5×7 matte finish cards.

I started searching around for the best deals for photo Christmas cards, eventually ending up on Groupon. Here’s what I found for 5×7 photo cards, standard cardstock, square trim, blank envelopes. Hint: avoid the traditional photo places (Walgreens, Shutterfly and Target Photo!)

  • Shutterfly
    • 40 cards regular price- $107 | With promo code- $68.44
      • Promo code GIVEGIFTS, 40% off & free ship, expires 11/30 but Shutterfly always has similar offers
  • Snapfish 
    • 40 cards regular price- $111.00 | With promo code- $42.29
    • With current 70% off and free shipping code (NOEL70, ends 12/3)

THEN I started searching on Groupon…

  • Collage
    • Their Groupon deal is 40 cards for $8.99; regular price- $87.60
    • This is the deal I went with. At checkout the total only came to $5.99, so I actually have a $3 credit to the site?  I brought 40 Christmas photo cards this year for $5.99!  I feel like George Bailey at the end of It’s A Wonderful Life, shouting through the streets, “Merry Christmas, Bedford Falls!”  Except I’m more like, “I brought 40 Christmas photo cards this year for $5.99!!!”

There are lots of photo cards deals out there right now.  Let us know what you have found!
