      Is anyone else having trouble with this website??  I can't get any of my photos to load and if they do, the site freezes up on me.

      • Beverly

        I think they are overwhelmed right now- I'm going to try again this afternoon :-)

      • firstlady

        I am having the same problem. I think I will try later.

    • Jewelsof1985

      Can't even get the site to load! Maybe I will try later… Thanks!!!

    • SarahJoy

      For me, so far, it's working, but running VERY slow.

    • Is it the 11×8.5″ Classic Landscape for 29.99 or the 8.5×11″ Classic Portrait for 19.99??

      • Beth

        I am wondering the same thing but no one is answering the question.

        • Jewelsof1985

          Jenny's original post says landscape.

          “2.  Create a 11? x 8.5? Landscape Hardcover book.”

    • Arquet

      I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

    • DJ3K

      extremely slow…im being very patient i want my free book lol

    • guest

      seems to freeze up once i started downloading my pics. :( i gave up…spent an hour trying to download just the first pic.

    • Love2Save

      glad i came to check and make sure its not just me. this blows lol i REALLY wanted it lol – i will try all day!

    • Val

      I thought my computer was having issues… guess not. I think there must be lots of people wanting a free book.

    • Leah

      I am guessing that is is so slow due to all the mommies getting their freebies, but so far it is working…just REALLLLLY SLOW… :)

    • Stephanie

      Yes, it's verrryyyyy slowwww!!!!!!

    • Tiffany

      anyone having issues getting book to load?? the clock sits forever….

    • Timothy Petty

      Ok…here goes…lol….just began uploading 17 HUGE photos for (hopeful) a free photography portfolio.  Wish me luck!

    • Ann

      I can't get past the size selection screen.

      I've been wanting to do this for a while now.  I'd like to start doing these for most of my pics since between the printing, the organizing, the filing in books,etc, nothign ever gets done!

    • Pinkiesstang

      Okay I was just wondering if I was the only person having so much trouble…I'd wait till later, but it may take all day! SSSSLLLLOOOOWWW

    • Jeanne

      Very very very very slow but working.

    • Brittany

      is this really free?

    • Jeanne

      I'm uploading pictures right now and its says 3 days of loading time for 33 pictures lol. Going to go to the pool with the kids and come back and see where it is.

    • Their server must be getting slammed because it is really slow! Also, it said I was already a user but I have never heard of this company. I wonder if they used to be called something else or are affiliated with another company.

    • Jennifer Bridger

      Server is overloaded

    • Jewelsof1985

      I still don't have one photo uploaded… anybody gotten that far??

    • DorkandShorty04

      How far has any one even gotten? I still havent tried to load any pictures yet

    • heh, I bet they get their server upgraded after today.

    • Lovnlife1972

      it told me it would take 3 hours to upload about 25 pictures…

    • Becky

      Been 2 hours and no pictures have uploaded.

    • McKittyKey

      Mine's been “uploading in progress” for almost an hour now, only 20 pictures.   I hope it works!

    • Jacki

      If you have a Flickr acount and use pictures from there they upload fast. Still a little slow moving from page to page but SOOOO much faster then just plain uploading. I acutally created my own Flickr account just for this because it was so much quicker.

    • Pamela

      I tried to do a live chat with them to see what the issue was and it said that it was unavailable due to there engineers trying to fix the problems they are having. it said to log off and try later. hopefully they will have the issue fixed later. hope this helps. I love pictures.

    • Pamela

      Live chat is currently unavailable. Due to extremely high site volumes
      we may not be able to take your chat right away. We are sincerely sorry
      for the inconvenience. If you are experiencing technical difficulties,
      our engineers are working to resolve the issues and we recommend trying
      back in a few hours.

    • Mommysauls

      Processing photo is where I am stuck at :(

    • DorkandShorty04

      this is insane lol

    • Timothy Petty

      Jacki's comment about using a Flickr account is working great!  So much faster!

      • DorkandShorty04

        for crying out loud really? but dont you have to load the pictures to flickr doesnt that take time too? *is pulling out her hair* lol

        • Jacki

          Flickr takes maybe 2 minutes. Its so much better then waiting hours for it to upload to Mixbook. I first tried to get them from my facebook and they wouldn't show. I was surprised when Flickr worked and it took me barely any time at all.

          • DorkandShorty04

            Flickr it is then!

            • DorkandShorty04

              were you able to get any of your picks off facebook and onto flickr thought cuz imma need to do that for a few pics that i want

          • Natashsholmes2006

            how do get get to the “flicker?”

    • C Seymore

      Deal has ended, code is expired. :(

      But if you were still in the middle of it:
      If you started a book before the deal maxed out on , we
      will honor our promotion and give you an extended coupon code. Please
      contact support@mixbook.com with the URL of your book to receive it.

    • Timothy Petty

      So much for 11:59 PST.

    • DorkandShorty04

      Theres no way!!

    • DorkandShorty04

      Ok well how do I find the url for the book that im doing?

    • Natashaholmes2006

      I have been trying for over 3 hours and I have not even added any photos just chose background…. where do you get the “flicker account?”

      • Jacki

        Yahoo.com Flickr is there version of an online photo album.

    • elaine

      Thanks for the flicker advice!  I have been waiting for hours, now suddenly I'm in and working on my book!!!!

    • Jacki

      Don't stress about the deal ending. just email them at email listed on a post below and tell them you started it but didn't finish. I got a reply in about 15 minutes with a code to extend the offer and the code is good until 7/2

    • Matt

      “The code from Slickdeals is valid all day. The number of coupon codes available was maxed out, but if you began a book before 10:30 am today (when the code was available on Slickdeals) and are experiencing difficulties with it, we are issuing out new extended codes for the same deal. You can get it by emailing us at support@mixbook.com with the URL of your book. All the best!”

      • Frances

        i had no url cuz didnt get to finish…..so that means no code?

    • Di

      I hope so, I just shot an email out and would love to try out a new company.

    • Jewelsof1985

      OMG!! I can not believe I am actually done with this thing! It said my order was received and I saved $40.98!!! Woo hoo……. man, do I need a break from this computer now.

    • DorkandShorty04

      has any one tried to use the code from above yet? Im almost done with my book finally but still havent gotten an email from mixbook about the code thing so yea?

    • Di

      I got a “thanks for contacting us” and “we will get to you” but that is the only email I have gotten.

      • DorkandShorty04

        same here and that was at least an hour ago Idk what to think any more

        • Jacki

          Just hold out. They are backed up. You will get an email with a code. And it will give you until 7/2 to use it.

          • DorkandShorty04

            Super excited now! lol just as you wrote that I got the email with the code. Also the reason I said I didnt get the email right away is cuz i really wasnt thinking about the site itself being backed up also reading someones comment about how they got an email in like 15 minutes so yea I wasnt trying to be rude.

            • Jacki

              Yea it was definatly worth it if you took the time to email them and such. Espcially since they gave the people who emailed them an extra 2 days to finish their books. I did mine all over again this morning and it took me 20 minutes compared to the 3 hours I spent trying to do it yesterday.

              Most sites don't expect to be so overloaded with people when they do these things I guess.

    • Guest

      I can't get the pics to upload . . . sooooooo slow.

    • aurora0081

      I spent 3.5 hours waiting for it to simply build my project thinking I had until midnight and time to wait. I have no url to give them because I never even got to start it! Very disappointed.

    • Rlhx2

      OMG!!! THIS THING IS SLOOOOOOW!!!  I dont know if i even want something for free if it takes all day to upload a few pics.

    • Di

      I just got a code that does not work, email tag FTW!

    • Bavarianchocs

      I just want to order a book that I already made weeks ago.  Can I do that?  Also, if the book is more than 20 pages, do you pay for each additional page or only shipping?

    • Plumaverde2010

      I just tried to get this going and was unable to. Apparently they either cannot handle traffic or do not want to give away too many photo books. I got this message:

      “We had a popular promotion this morning so our engineering wizards are currently making some site updates to support our new users. At this time the creation of new books is temporarily disabled to allow our users to finish and order their existing projects. We anticipate that our site will return to normal within 24 hours. Thank you for your patience and have a safe and wonderful weekend!”

      • I got that, too. I bet they'll make it right in the future!

    • Abfabsoapworks

      What is the new code, my virus scan won't let me go to fill out the form for the new code :((((

    • Tiffany

      i got the same message as Plumaverde2010   :(

    • blah! I got the same message!

    • Tnrdanes

      already out – this offer ended at 10:30am

    • Fcaj1994

      Spent the last 5 hours getting this site to load and now trying to upload pics…not sure it's worth it even if it is free…uuggghhhhh.

    • Shawnas50

      This site is not taking new books. Did anyone get to take advantage of this deal?

    • Di

    • Bamabobbie

      I read on another blog if you started your order by 10AM they would send you another code to use.  I couldn't even get to the site by then.

    • LC

      I tried to do just that.  But the site had been disabled until  24 hours from now.  I am so sorry that I missed that opportunity.  If the site advertised this until this evening, I feel like we should have the time extended because they did not make good on their offer.

    • Celtfan82

      I sent an Email and this is all that I received:

    • sophie

      I got max coupons used.  :( could not get my free book



    • Just4yall

      NEW books have been disabled for 24 hours but if you started it this morning and couldnt get it go to your profile and see if you have a book or books already in process. I had 3 cus I tried more than once to do it. If you have a book click on it and you can still so it without having to wait until tomorrow.

      • Just4yall

        If your logged in its under Create tap. Mine is going really fast now.



    • Boyce1983

      their site can't handle the traffic !  I tried to create an album and in 8 hrs, could only upload 9 out of 120 pics.  the pics are all small, less than 500 kb each.  what a disappointment !

    • Beth

      My pictures have been loading for 4 hours and only 2 have posted so far. Could it be frozen? Should I start all over again?

    • Wire Tightener

      they are asking people to return at a later time.  they can't handle the traffic.  I only wish they had told me before I signed up.  Otherwise I never would have.  disappointing.

    • Togologo2002

      I also created an account and got the message that they will discontinue new books for 24 hours.

    • Jacintafigures

      I just submitted my order and received a pop up that the code has reached it max limit of 1500

      • Jaimemarie

        Yep I got that too!  I spent 4 hours  on the darn thing!!

    • McKittyKey

      =( spent all afternoon waiting for my pictures to upload and when they finally did and got my book all laid out — so pretty, too! — they were no longer taking the coupon code! ~sigh~ Guess I'll have to save the $40 to buy my book!!

    • DorkandShorty04

      I received an email with another code and it worked just ordered mine a few minutes ago.

      • Kkeyes

        Would you share that new code?

      • Mikeandtammy2008

        what was the code?

    • Mikeandtammy2008

      What a load of crap! :(  I can't even order mine now.   I started this morning before even going to work, just spent 4 hours working on finishing it, and now I can't even get it.  They didn't say anything about a 1500 limit! :(

    • Angie

      If you select a size that you have to pay for it lets you go through the process.

      • Mikeandtammy2008

        is it free though?

    • Goldenamy77

      fake!! wasted my freaking time!

    • Greenk20032003

      wont except any new books.

    • ashley

      All you have to do is email them that you have been working on your book and they will email you a one time code to use and you get the book and shipping for free!  So calm down and just email them.  it will all work out!!!!

      • Love2Save

        i emailed and i started mine before 10:30 i was told to just keep trying

    • Just4yall

      I am starting to feel sorry for them. $30 books X 1500+

    • Robinbrooks36

      I worked on the photo book for many hours.  I entered the code FREEBK and it said the coupon had exceeded 1500.  It will not give me any discount.

      • Laura

        It did the same to me, and I emailed the support people and they sent me a new one-time use code to use.

    • Just4yall


      • Pjteaches

        I emailed them and have not received a code only that they will get back with me later.

    • Kim

      the website has shut down, so you can't even access to make a book.  do you know if they will allow you to use the code at a later time, since the website was not accessible?

    • Hicksmic1998

      Yep not taking any new books. Not going back to this website

    • Suzy

      Photobook coupon has reached it's limit.  Ugggg. After I spent a long time loading pictures and creating a wedding book for new SIL.  Oh well!

      • JR

        Same thing happened to me after loading all pics. and creating album. Bummer.

    • dang!!

      sad. spent the last 2 and a half hours on this and then it said code not working because it's been used too many times. this stinks.

    • K Morris1125

      Spent all day making this album and it says that the coupon has reached its limit. Really frustrating!

    • Mommysauls

      I have been on this site ALL day. I finally get it done and they are out or hit the limit. So I emailed them and they sent me a new code. Well I shouldn't complain but by this time i was so upset. The new code made it all free but one dollar.. Really one dollar , I dunno if I trust the site now… : /

      • Pjteaches

        I spent all day and night and my email didn't have a new code.  Very disappointed.  Took all day to upload picture and to just connect.

    • Queenofnashville

      spent 9 hrs on book, now i get nothing!

    • Vicki

      I just emailed Mixbook to let them know that the FREEBK code didn't work for me and they emailed me back that they weren't giving out any new codes unless you had a URL for your book that shows that you started your book before 10:30 a.m. today.  Unfortunately I didn't start mine before 10:30. So no new code for me to complete my book… 
      Their entire response is posted below:

      “Thank you for your message. As our free book promotion was extremely popular, the promotion did max out at 10:30 a.m. PST. Please know this promotion was intended for a small group of our affiliate websites. We did not expect for it to go viral and get re-posted by many sites such as SlickDeals and bloggers. Unfortunately, most of the re-posters did not include the deal's full terms which stated that this was a limited offer to the first 1,500 users. We are working to honor the deal for as many people as we can, but it is just not possible to give everyone free book.  At this time we are only able to issue new codes to users who have started a specific project and have a URL for that project as started before 10:30 a.m. We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience.

      Thank you for your understanding – please check back often for great deals and special promotions :) We love our customers and we hope you enjoy Mixbook too!

      Please let us know if we may be of any additional assistance.
      Best regards,Mixbook Team”

    • Timothy Petty

      Started mine this morning, but had half a day of very slow uploading before Jacki's suggestion of uploading to a Flickr account sped things up.  Still missed the cutoff, but after I emailed support@mixbook.com and got this email shortly:
      Thank you for writing to Mixbook. We appreciate your patience and your business!

      Please use the extended, one-time use code: ******* through 11:59 PST on 7/2.

      This code is good for one free 11×8.5 landscape book with 20 pages*.This

      you have any additional questions. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Emilie Tonn

      Thank you for following up Timothy… I had started a book last night, but after hours of working on it-went to bed.  Then tonight (after I put my baby down) I worked on it for another hour, only to have my book denied due to the 1,500 users that had already submitted one. I've contacted the company, and hope they can assist. : o (


    • DayGoxChixx

      I emailed Mixbook and they gave me a one time use code to get the free 20pages book & they also gave me a code for a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE book. Hopefully anyone who is unable to get their free book can use this to get a second one free. (: <3
      Promotion code 9JZYMX12 cannot be combined with other offers, discount codes or Groupons. Offer only valid on new customer's first purchase. At least two of the same books must be ordered to receive the second book free. This coupon code will expire in one week at 11:59 PST on 7/8/2011.  Please note that this code cannot be combined with any other offers and you must have a quantity of at least 2 books (of any size) for this discount to apply.

      • cecilia

        can u please tell me how to email them…i went to the help page but could not find an email address

        • Lylprettygirl

          If you go down the the bottom of the page, hopefully you'll see a bunch of links like About Us in columns. On the far right, there is a Contact Us link. click that.

          • cecilia

            awesome thank you! now it seems like i need to work all day tomorrow to make another book so i can get the deal!! ahhh my eyes are burning! lol

        • Timothy Petty
    • Suzy

      I got my emailed code and just finished a wedding book that will be a gift for my new sister in law.  This will make a nice wedding gift for her and her new hubby.  Along with dinner out at Sticks and Stones Steakhouse. =-)  Can't wait to see the book in person.

    • I never could get my project to load. After a few hours of the little thing just spinning around saying it was creating my project, it never did and I gave up. Oh, well. These deals seem to come along pretty often.

    • Jacki

      Spent a $1 for and extra page but saved 36.99 between the book and shipping.

      Now thats a DEAL!

      Because I emailed them I also got to do it this morning in 20 minutes as apposed to waiting hours to do it yesterday!

    • Jessica

      I started my Mixbook at 9:00 AM CST, but they are refusing to give me a new code.  How can we trust a company like this?

      • Timothy Petty

        Did you start it yesterday at 9am or today?  The were only honoring deals on projects that were started before 10:30 am on yesterday (6/30)

        • Jessica

          I started it at 9:00 AM CST on 6/30.  They did some checking and found my book, so they issued me a one time use code!

      • Dglasl

        Same here Jessica.  I just sent them another email telling them so and that I wanted it elevated.  At least they could have put something on their website to say that they were no longer accepting the promotion.  They did put a banner saying they were having a high demand.  If they could put that then they could have said we are at capacity for the FREEBK.  I feel it was a partial scam to suck us in, do the work and say sorry, you have to pay full price because we don't want to honor our promotion any longer.

        ***UPDATE***  I asked Mixbook to double check the time on my photobook and was sent an email that said that after further checking, I did qualify for a new code.  Got my new code yesterday and just placed my order.  I paid $1.00 for the extra page, so I got 21 pages!  Thanks, Mixbook for honoring the promotion!  ***UPDATE***

      BEWARE! I finally got my book ordered and they sent me a new code through email (ALL DAY THING) and they still charged my debit card 41.98!!! It was only supposed to be $1.00 !! I sent an email already and I looked for a phone number but did not find one.. VERY UPSET

      OK- Yesterday was a failure for me, after working for hours- I was snubbed at checkout like so many. Emailed them. Today I got one email saying “sorry…if you didn't checkout before 10:30am, you don't get it” and another one 2 minutes later saying here is the code for your free book, it must be completed by midnight on July 2nd. I don't think they were ready for all of this….we'll see how the book turns out!
