      Has anyone gotten a 16 x 20 gallery wrapped canvas from Cafepress or Canvas on Demand?

      • Regisgaskin

        I was wondering the thing….I hope someone can share their experience….I would love to order some of our last beach shoot….

      just FYI with the Picaboo deal–you cannot use the gift card with any other promotion! I tried to use the gift card in combo with the BOGO promotion on their calendars and photobooks, but you can't combine. PLUS you can only order one project at a time–I tried to make two different calendars (for both sides of the family) but could only put one in the cart at a time–and then had to pay shipping on each project I wanted to order–and shipping is in my opinion pretty high! They have very nice products, but even with the great deal on the giftcard, it seems to work out better on other sites–like shutterfly, etc!

      • I didn't try the BOGO code, but I used the Groupon with the 25% off holiday cards promotion a few days ago without any problems. I ordered 130 cards, used the 25% off code, and my total was $101.36, so I ended up getting 130 cards for $36.36! It is the best deal I've ever gotten on Christmas cards. The 25% off code ends today, though, so if you buy that Groupon today you won't be able to use it. However, I get emails from Picaboo all the time and they almost always have some sort of promotion going on.

          At least one Picaboo groupon has specified that it COULD be used with other deals (Pittsburg, I think). That is the one I bought, and deals have worked.

          All the ones I've seen after that have specifically stated that they canNOT be used with other deals, including the one today. So yeah, if someone is thinking of buying today, I'd assume it doesn't work with any promo codes. Then it's always worth a try!

      • branchofthevine

        I ordered just yesterday with an older Picaboo groupon I had, and was able to get the BOGO free, and use the gift card. The promo code is in one place, the gift card goes in another.

    • Couponcrazymom

      Is there a code to use for the AAA deal? When I used the link, it just went to AAA web site, no automatic discount…?

      • you have to order the groupon first and then you'll get a code in your email to use.

    • kpeele

      I was also planning to use the BOGO promotion with my Groupon and just tried to place the order (with a book I previously prepared) and was also told I couldn't use them both. There was actually a place for me to choose which one to use. Thanks for the heads up, Alissa! Now I know not to bother trying to get a new book ready to order today.

    • Coreen

      I love it when you do this post. I wish I could figure out how to find the national deals on a daily basis… anyone know? I can only seem to access the deals for my town.

    • Ndheaton

      What is a groupon? Please explain how I can get it on this deal> Thanks.

    • I disagree with most people here; since I started reading this blog post I couldn't stop until I was done, while it wasn't just what I had been trying to find, was still a great read though. I will instantaneously get your blog feed to keep in touch of future updates.
