CVS: 4 Free Photo Books!

on 12.21.2010 at 5:03pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Here is a head’s up for a coupon that probably won’t last the day but will get you up to 4 free photo books the week of 12/26 at CVS! This will be great for all your holiday photos!!

Coupons.com is offering a Buy One Get One Free 8×10 Kodak Photo book printable.

Combine it with next week’s BOGO sale at CVS and you get two free 10 page 8×10 books with each coupon (don’t forget to print two coupons by hitting the back button!).

Also grab the $1 off Tone Body Wash coupon for another freebie starting next week at CVS!

    • Fjroman4

      umm. i am not sure how to do this… i know that on coupons.com they have a $5.00 off hp photo books any size… you can get a free book if you get it at walmart…

    • Susan

      Yay! Thank you!

    • savysaver

      Awesome! I have never made one of these…should be a new adventure.

    • Ldavenport

      Love it!!! My parents love photo books of their grandchildren!! Can't wait!

    • Me

      These books are so cheap. I wouldn't feel right giving them as a gift. You'd really be better off looking for a free/cheap deal at one of the online photo processing sites.

      • Doitmyselfmom

        Do you mean that they are poor quality? In what way?

    • Kt

      Does this mean you pay no money for any of the 4 books? These 2 BOGO coupons are confusing to me, never used 2 before. Thanks :)

      • Mandy

        Exactly! Maybe tax? It rings up like this:

        Book #1 = $9.99 (for example)
        Book #2 = $0.00 (CVS Sale B1G1)
        Book #3 = $9.99
        Book #4 = $0.00 (CVS B1G1)
        Total = $19.98
        Now for the coupons…store sale deals are completely separate from what the manufacturer offers. They each stand alone.
        Minus (2) B1G1 coupons – you actually purchased 4 books even though they rang up free, per CVS deal. So, $19.98 – $19.98 (cost of 2 books that manuf will pay = free!)
        I hope that helps :)

    • Jen

      It says one coupon per customer, so I guess you'd have to do them in separate visits unless you could get them to overlook it lol

    • Megan

      Can someone explain how this will work: using a BOGO coupon and a BOGO CVS deal? I don't want to go in looking like an idiot ;)

      • Jade

        I would also like to know how this works!!

      • When your books are rung up, one will ring at regular price and the other will ring up 0.00. Present your coupon and the cashier will subtract the regular price, leaving 0.00. You will probably have to pay tax on both.

      • I am guesing on price here: Let's say beach book is $10

        1st Book- $10
        2nd Book- $0 (B1G1 free)
        = $10 + tax (NC has 7% tax) so $10.07 due
        -$10 coupon (Use the B1G1 free coupon (max value of 19.99)
        =.07 OOP

    • they may not be top quality but I'm so excited since we're celebrating Christmas away from our “big family” this year and this way can make short books of our daughter opening their gifts and celebrating to send to them as “thank you cards” :)

    • Croxy1286

      So you buy 2 and get 4 free? Can they be 6 different photo book creations?

      • Annaforcoupons

        Well actually you only have to pay tax on 4 and you get all 4 free… if you want to get 6 then you would have to pay for the other two….. Pretty much CVS gives you 2 and then when they take off your coupons you get the other two free as well from Kodak.

    • Livserge331

      Yay! I can have my Xmas 2011 presents done the day after Xmas 2010! In the past I have always made photobooks of whatever pictures I have from the year, and given that to my husband's two sisters, his mom, and his grandparents (4 books). I'll just take a ton of pictures on Christmas to fill the book! :D Thanks Jenny!

    • ShopperSteph

      I have never made one of these. Do you have to make it in the store or can you upload the pictures at home and go to the store to pick it up? All my photos are on the computer. Thanks!!

      • Angel_in_Charleston

        I have always done them in the store. Don't know if you can do them online or not.

    • Melissa

      I don't understand how you use a bogo coupon on an already BOGO deal? Will CVS honor this?

      • Angel_in_Charleston

        Yes! When you couple a BOGO coupon with a BOGO sale at CVS you get both for free. The store is giving you one, and the manufacturer (Kodak) is giving you the other. The first item scans full price, and the second free. Then they enter the coupon and deduct the cost of the first item, making both free. Sweet deal!

    • lovethecoupons

      Do you have to make the book in store, or can you make it online? I have never used Kodak before.

      • in store only

        • lovethecoupons

          Thanks! :)

    • CHI

      I did this deal a couple months ago. The books are basically 10 prints glued together to the hardcovers. You make the prints on the kodak machine (chose from templates, arrange different protos into a page etc etc) and the photo tech puts them together.
      I made some for my sister's baby shower and she loved them.
      Nothing fancy, but it's free.

    • Analisa

      I have a few quick questions I hope someone could answer for me…
      Can I make the books from my home computer or do I need to use the Kodak booth in the store?
      Can these be different books or do all have to be the same?

    • jessica

      i cant find it any ideas??

      • $avin’some$

        once you are on coupons.com click the category “photography” on the left. that should help you find it easier.

      • under photography.

      • Nita Royal

        It didn't show up under my zipcode, but it worked when I used 81147. Then look under “photography”.

    • Melissa

      The coupon must be gone. I can't find it anymore.

      • If you use SwagBucks, print the coupon from their coupon section. It is also powered by Coupons.com. Plus, for every coupon you print and use you earn 10 SwagBucks.

      • couponmama

        I just got two…at coupons.com go to the photography category.

      • couponmama

        I just got two…go to coupons.com & look under photography category- they’re there.

      • Nichols_again

        It's under photography…it's still there

    • Butterhead16

      I know this was already mentioned here in the comments but I was wondering if anyone has ever done these at home online to pick up there? I printed from two computers so 8 free photo books and if I go & create one instore I will probably have a hard time getting out the door with 8 all at once. I certainly don't want to go & create it four different times! I won't be able to find a babysitter that many times and will have to take my 3 rugrats in with me. Can you imagine? Has anyone done this online? Please help me out, Thanks sooooooo much!

    • Mamaraley

      This coupon is not printing for me…any suggestions?? It says it sent it to printer and they are printing but they aren't….the other coupon printed fine…ugg! Technology….

      • Sharon

        Same thing with me. Said it was sent to my printer but did not print!!

    • Kathy

      I think the coupons are gone, was there a minute ago but wouldn't print. Now I can't find it.

    • scmom

      I can't find it. Is it still there?

    • Mari

      must have been pulled…didn't print for me either..and I 'saw' it on the page…

    • Lovelivelaugh716

      Deal of the day! Today you can get the books bogo also!!! So go order them online and pick them up =) Awesome last minute pictures! Esp since my seehere.com ones didnt come out as nice as I would have liked! Make sure it is the 8×10 one sided! =) the code is BOGOEXPRESSBOOK

    • Lucy

      The deal is a $3 MM if you received the “$3 off In-Store Photo Book” coupon from the red kiosk coupon printer last week.

    • Sherry Tangkit

      I don't see it now.

      This one has to be done in the store on the Kodak machine. It's really easy.

    • Brenda Dixon

      I don't see it. What zip code do you use?

    • Sheryll01

      I could not find a coupon for Kodak, only HP.

    • rosewood4

      i am pretty sure it is gone i have tried several zips and I can't find it.

      • Brandy

        I was just able to print two of them. I hope I can still print two tonight from my home computer too!

        • THEHERBIE17


    • LB514

      Great! I just printed one of these coupons yesterday. Too bad I didn't print 2, since it's gone now, but I can still get 2 free books. Yay!

    • Salipatrick

      I didn't find that coupon, help!

    • scrapbookwildcat

      Can I do the books online and send to the store or do I have to create the book in the store at the kiosk? I saw that someone else asked this, but I haven't seen that the question was answered. Thanks.

    • Eib333

      If you want to spend any extra time on this, I tried googleing Kodak Kiosk coupons, this is their “holiday offer.” (http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=2300987&pq-locale=en_US ) this is the address that I got a print from :)
      Hope you find one!!
      Merry Christmas-May the Lord Jesus shine brightly in your life.

    • Stephanie
    • Sheila

      type in kiosk holiday offer-kodak in search bar they have the coupon there.

    • Nicoland77

      I just typed kiosk holiday offer-kodak and cant find the coupon…HELP!

    • Nicoland77

      Yea!!! I found it:) Went to “kiosk holiday offer” in yahoo search.Got to the site typed in “BOGO coupon” in the search bar.Its right there under holiday offer.

      • Theherbie17

        thankyou! I found it!!

      • rosewood4

        thank you thank you thank you, I thought that i had missed it since I could not get it on coupons dot com

      • 2busymom

        Thank you nicoland77, i followed your instructions and was able to find it. I thought i had missed it, this will be the first photo books I make yippeee

    • Amanda

      For anyone who missed the coupons.com here is another link at the kodak website:http://www.kodak.com/eknec/Pag…how this works…never left a link before. If you can’t click on link just copy and paste this should take you right to the coupon. Merry Christmas <3

    • Pfph5

      Thank you so much. I'm going to make “My First Christmas” for my granddaughter!

    • So I have a coupon I got from the CVS coupon kiosk that is for $3 off In-Store Photo book (6×8) or larger. So Could I use that with the Kodak B1G1 coupon and the CVS B1G1 special??

    • Brownebaby

      I think there are no more prints for those links either. let us know if anyone finds another. thanks

      • Papaandnaya

        just printed 2 They are not gone

    • krystal moon

      I hope the deal worked out prefect for everyone else. For me it was really more of a headache and I only made two books. So hopefully anyone that did more than 2 got lucky and had a better experience than I did.

    • Amy

      Has anyone used this in the Summerville, SC area? I tried tonight and checked with the cashier to make sure before I started…they had no idea and said they had to call the help dsk to make sure it wasn't a fake coupon. I waited at least 30 minutes before I finally told them just to give me the coupon back and I would come back tomorrow. I should be able to get 2 books free without buying any books, right?

    • Merg49

      Yesterday I ordered 2 but the mgr said I would have to pay for 1 so I called corp & they said all I had to pay was the tax. I picked it up today & told the mgr what corp. said. She acted like it was a favor to do,but she gave it to me. I paid $1.08 for 2 books. I might go to another CVS tomorrow.

    • erica

      I made two at the CVS Kodak kiosk this morning, with a crying toddler in tow and the clerk would not let me use my coupon for my free photo book offer. I bought it anyway because I had worked so hard on them. I tried calling Kodak when I got in my car to find out what the problem was, but that was a bad idea. I was transferred to 3 different places and no one knew what I was talking about. I finally gave up on that idea and called CVS back to get their corporate office number and they told me to come in and they would give me a refund for the book I had to pay for. I guess they don't want anyone with a complaint against there store getting to corporate. So, if your store won't take the coupon, just ask for their corporate office number.

      • Kaseyshadow

        I tried two different stores in the LExington SC area. The 1st one's 8×10 printer was broken and the second one let me make the 1st book and when I went to make a second book with different pictures it replaced the 1st book with the new pictures then the computer “lost” service. Thought that was a great way for CVS to not have to honor the q's. I was wondering do I have to buy 2 of the same book or can I make 2 different books?

        • CVS PHOTO

          What CVS in Lex did you try? Did you visit Sunset?

    • Junk1111

      Can you make the photo books online and pick them up in the store?

      • CarrieG608

        Yes you can….

    • Mamakabam4

      I made 2 kodak books online last night and picked them up with my BOGO coupon and got them both free, just had to pay tax. This was at the CVS in Irmo, SC on Lake Murray. They had to get the manager to do it because the guy could not figure it out but they did not give me any issues.

      • Ashpeg83

        was your coupon from coupons.com or kodak? i am wondering how it’ll work withthe kodak coupon because it says kiosk right?

    • Walkerrh

      The manager at the CVS I went to did not want to take the coupon and it did not scan. He did not try to do anything to get the coupon to work either. He said nothing is for free and that CVS has to make some money to pay him for puting the books together. I paid for the one book anyway. What steps can I do next time to make sure that it is free other than going to another store. I had already been to two other stores–one out of paper and one the machine was broke. I guess that was their way of not having to deal with the coupons either.

    • CarrieG608

      I also made the two photo books online last night and went to pick them up today. They were not able to get the coupon to work in the register but after about 10 minutes of discussion between myself and the manager, they entered it manually. Next time I will take the email that you have posted under the “CVS Almost Official Coupon Policy” with me so that they understand that if CVS has an item for BOGO and I have a manufacturer coupon that is also BOGO, I will get both items for free without any problems. I am in Jacksonville, FL.

    • Lee

      After reading some of the comments here, I consider myself lucky that it actually worked out. The photo guy did have to speak to the manager for a few minutes, but that was it. He put it through without a problem. I got two photo books for 12 cents. It took me about 40 minutes because I had to scan old photos (one at a time) that I was using. I will make sure to scan them at home next time. I am in west palm beach, FL.

    • christie

      CVS would not let me use the q; they said the bogo photo books were cvs books and the q was for kodak. I was not happy after 45 minutes of work

      • Travelingstacey

        I had the same issue! Except I made 4 photo books! I still haven't paid for mine. Is there any way to still get the deal or just accept that they're not going to take my coupons?

    • Amy Q.

      Well the other day I tried this out, and I only did two books to be on the safe side (besides, it did take me awhile to put together) and when I got to the register, the q scanned and it told the cashier to input the amount, but then it said it wouldn't do because of a limit (or something?). I ended up having to pay for it, but I think I'm going to go back today and try to get my money back with the unofficial policy. I also have more of these coupons, but I dont think I'll be using them because of the confusion. I think its such a problem bc of the higher dollar item.

      • Amy Q.

        just went and got back. I got my money back but not without first being made feel like a scam artist, cheap skate and a fool. I might be calling corporate about this one. Does anyone know where I can get the corporate info I need?

        • Nysummer2010

          you can call 1-800-SHOP-CVS…and option”3″ …then “customer service”. That's what I will try to do tomorrow morning.

    • Johnandangela

      I will NEVER SET FOOT into the CVS that I have been shopping again! My husband went to get the books for me and the manager wouldn't use the coupon. I printed out the email that Jenny has posted and took it with me to try to get the books and the manager told me I couldn't get ANYTHING free! I called the customer care line from the parking lot, and the agent on the phone called the store. The manager again refused to override the coupon, stating that the agent would have to call her district manager, who is conveniently not available today or tomorrow! When the manager won't even listen to corporate, it tells me I don't want to shop there anymore. My next closest CVS doesn't offer the book printing services. Customer care did offer me a $15.00 reimbursement if I wanted to pay for the book, but I'll be darned if that CVS ever gets another penny out of me! My only option for shopping CVS is very inconvenient, so I don't know if I will even be doing CVS deals again!

      • Amy

        My store wouldn't let me use the coupons either nor would they override anything. Waste of time.

      • After something like that, I think I'd file a complaint with CVS Corporate. It is up to CVS to make sure that their employees (especially managers) follow company policy. Here is the address:

        Corporate Headquarters
        One CVS Drive
        Woonsocket, RI 02895

    • Melanie_patrick

      I also tried to use the coupon and my CVS wouldn't let me do it. They said they had already called the corporate office and they wouldn't allow it :(

      • Johnandangela

        The problem with that excuse is that the customer service agent I was talking to said they all got an email this morning explaining how to override the coupon in this very case!

    • jenid

      I live in Murfreesboro TN and our CVS was wonderful…I called the mgr. ahead of time and cleared everything with him. I told him the coupon was from kodak and he looked it up on his phone through this site. It had a map that showed our CVS on it as a kiosk location and it said the coupon was valid. He said that it was ok for me to do it online and send it in so I didn't have to spend hours at the kiosk with my kids in tow. My husband went to pay for the books today b/c they are out of the paper to print them (which he told me ahead of time and told me they were ordering it..I didn't care). My books cost 1.99 b/c our sales tax is around 10%. Sorry it didn't work in other places. The BOGO free online is extended to January 3 so I'm doing my other 2 books since I had two coupons. Maybe this will help others.

    • CVS Photo Sup

      Just a heads up– you cannot use a coupon when picking up an online order in store. In order to use a BOGO coupon for an online order, you have to have an online coupon code. The price is set once you send the order over to the local store.

    • Mamakabam4

      I did mine online and they took it with no problem :)

    • Robinotr

      If anyone tried to do this deal and was turned down, call corporate. The representative I spoke to was very nice, called my store (they really tried to take the coupon but system would not let them), told them how to accept them and I can go in tomorrow and get the $32 refunded as I had printed 4 books.
