      Whats the code??

    • Angela

      Do you know which size book it will be? I just didn’t want to upload the wrong size.

      Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!

      • Jenny

        It’s the cluch

        • Lisa

          Wish you would post that on the front page. Just spent tons of time with my daughter doing a book and now find out it doesn’t qualify. Very frustrating to have to read the comments to find out. (Tipped off by another website that had the correct info.)

          • Nina

            you should be thankful she posted the promo at all. Thanks Jenny for all you do!

          • Zonya

            You could select the $25 certificate and apply it toward the book. Sorry for your frustration, but remember, Jenny does do an awful lot here!

            • katie in VA

              you are the best, jenny!

          • McKayla

            be thankful,you could do all the work yourself

    • This is awesome! Thanks Jenny

    • Myrissa

      Which cards will qualify!?! I don’t want to set up the wrong thing.

    • Brittany

      This is awesome but I don’t understand how it works. Do you log in and checkout with one of these items or is there a code you enter?

      • Jenny

        You go onto their website tomorrow and get the code if you are one of the first 20,000

        • Brittany

          Thank You! That makes sense:)

    • Do you know what time the offer is going to start? Right after midnight or first thing in the morning? Thanks so much!

    • Julie

      I dont see one labeled “Clutch”. Is it hard cover or soft cover? i see one in the soft cover group labeled “compact”… is that it?

      • amy

        on the home page it has “clutch $5” pictured on the front

      • Susan

        I typed “clutch” in the search box and one came up. I don’t know if this is it or not, but I would think so. I hope that helps. If anyone knows differently, please respond.

    • monica

      You get free shipping on your first order! Use code: MYFIRSTORDER at checkout

    • Tara

      Is there a certain Photo Card that you have to order?

    • Car

      I just did the “live chat” at the photo works website to see what time the promotion starts tomorrow and the guy said that it doesn’t exist, and it will not be happening tomorrow.

    • Jules

      What’s this mean?:
      Or you will have until 12/15 to use the coupon code you pick, just keep in mind holiday shipping if you wait to redeem it.

    • Beth

      According to “Freebies4Mom.com” you have to register on AmericanGreeting.com to get the coupon code. They are the ones offering to the first 20,000 to register on their website a coupon code for Photoworks. As I was checking on the site, in order to register on amerciangreetings.com, you have to purchase a subscription to their site. It does offer a 1 week free trial offer, so I’m not sure if you could register, get the free photoworks code, and then cancel the subscription or not. Just thought this might help to clear up the confusion about the code. Doesn’t look as if Photoworks is the one giving it out, just American Greetings.

    • Jamie

      The above website in Beth’s post said that “Remember you don’t have to order your free photo gift tomorrow, but you do need to be one of the first 20,000 to ask for the coupon code!”…… So I am not sure about this. I have some photo’s uploaded to the site ready to submit at mid-night.. but if you can just grab and code and submit it later tomorrow, I am going to do that…. I just hope its a legit freebie!! :)

    • Beth

      Well, I just ordered my photobook for FREE and it’s 12:07 am. Just go to the American Greetings website and click on the FREE photoworks button on the right hand side. They will ask you to choose the selecion that you would like for free and then give you a coupon code to enter when you check out. It’s so easy! Can’t believe I got another free item from them in one week. Yippy!

      • Thank you so much. I was lost until i saw your comment. Went straight to American Greetings website and there it was as big as day. Couldn’t miss it. FYI: it is 9:59 am (Florida) So there are still some available for those who did try at midnight! Merry Christmas.

    • Stephanie

      I got my code! I just went to americangreetings.com and clicked on the ad that announced the free gift. I printed off my code.

      Easy as that! Now, it does say “While Supplies Last”, so I better get my book together quickly. :)

    • Kelly

      I ordered my calendar and it was FREE!!!!!! Thanks Jenny! You are awesome!

    • Stacy

      I got mine! So easy! Thanks Jenny! You rock!

    • Sarah Epp

      Just got my book! Very very easy! Go to the website – american greetings, and then click on photoworks…choose what you want and then they give you the code!! AWESOME! I love free stuff!

    • Adrian

      Thank you so much!! I just placed my order with no problems and it said that my calender should be here within 10 days. Woo-Hoo!!

    • Hilda

      Jenny, thank you so much!!!
      I just noticed the offer and happened to be up late, so I got the chance to be one of the first 20,000.
      We saved 22.00 dollars on our Christmas cards this year!!! What a great deal!!
      Thank you again, for all you do!

    • Tricia

      I got mine! I didn’t have to purchase a subscription or anything, just register on Photoworks, which I had to do anyway to create my calendar. I called my daughter at college and she got one, too, only since she’s an artist, she uploaded her own artwork instead of pics. Can’t wait to see it!
      Thanks for the timely tip – I bet the deal is dead before breakfast!

    • Buffy

      I just ordered mine!! FREE, FREE, FREE!!! And it will be here in 5 – 7 days!!! Thank you Jenny!!!

    • Lisa

      I got the code, but when I applied it at checkout, it only gave me free shipping, not the photo book even though the coupon code says free clutch photo book and free shipping. Any advice???

      • britani

        I noticed that too but if you use the photocard code or the calendar code it works for the book. if you need the code I have it written down. plus I used different email account and got many books for free!! I just did it, so it is going on all day!!

    • Chamblee Mom

      Just placed my order. Thanks so much! I just ordered my photo cards. Just make sure you order it on photo paper.

    • amy

      Yeah! I bought the $5.00 clutch today because I was unsure of what was to happen and I thought it was a great deal..so I checked and there are free items so I will just do my christmas cards! Thank you!

    • Mindy

      Thanks Jenny! You are awesome as always!!! I got my code!!

    • Heather

      This is an AMAZING deal!!!

    • Is it done already? I can’t find an ad to click on that states free stuff. What does the add look like on americangreetings.com?

      • Ok, this is how I finally found the promo
        1) go to http://www.americangreetings.com
        2) clicked on the “talking e-card” picture on the upper right (a bunch of animals on the picutre)
        3) clicked on the “Today only! Free Gift” picture on the right hand side (if you get the “Warm up their holidays by sending this free ecard with a snowman picured on the it then either refresh the page or go back to americangreetings.com and click on the “talking e-card” button again and you will get the “Today only! Free gift” button to show up.)
        4) you recieve your code for the free stuff (My code started with a letter and then had 10 numbers to follow. I have already used it and sent my free calendar to my in-laws! I love my in-laws!)

    • Thanks a bunch for listing this offer. I just ordered my Christmas cards for FREE!! Love it!

    • cassie

      I am on the website and have received my code. When I completed my clutch book and went to check out only the shipping was removed with the code I received. Am I doing something worng? Please help.

      • It should all be free. Did you get a code that starts with a letter and is 10 numbers after that? It should work.

      • Lisa

        Same thing happened to me! I’m hoping customer service can straighten it out when they open at 9 a.m.

    • Zonya

      You have to use Internet Explorer to see the ad. Didn’t show up on Firefox.

      • MarySC

        No problems using FF for me! Got my code and my pictures are downloading.

    • Zonya

      Right now, you can order the Clutch book from photoworks for $5, so if you select the free book as your gift, you only get a $5 value rather than a $16 something value like it says. They do have a larger (5×7, I think) for 12 something. I got a $25 certificate, and plan to do two of those books, and then try to use the free shipping code mentioned above. Just a suggestion. Don’t blame me if it doesn’t work. :-)

      • Zonya

        I actually ended up doing one of the 8×8 books for 29.95, and using the $25 certificate. They only let you put in one coupon code per order, so I ended up having to pay $8.99 for shipping. Still for $14 I got a nice photo book like I wanted for my daughter’s baby pictures. Thanks Jenny.

    • Kathryn

      I got the clutch photo book and put in pictures from my daughters first birthday party! Thank you so much for letting us know about this awesome FREE deal!!!

    • Becky

      woohooo just got my book finished. I took pictures of my daughters graduation and put them in there. I will use this as a stocking stuffer for her.

    • Helen

      I got mine! 6:45 am….put together my daughter’s first concert to see Miley Cyrus. What a great FREE stocking stuffer!

    • Maria

      Just ordered a calendar. They are the 8×10 ones. Thanks for this!!!

    • Amy

      Jenny, YOU ROCK!

    • Is the code over? I can’t find it ;(

      • Jamie

        You have to scroll down to the bottom of the home page at photoworks.com and click on the americangreetings.com website which is in the very bottom right hand corner..

      • found it! thanks I just wentstaight to americangreetings.com and it was the first thing that popped up largely!

      • Joyelle

        Not over yet.. I just did it..so easy.

    • evie

      I received the code last night and when I went to checkout the code only took off the shipping, not the cards. I tried three different kind of cards and none of them worked. Has anyone else had the same problem???

      • Amy

        This special didn’t start until today. Go back to American Greetings and start over by clicking on Photoworks. You probably got a code for a special that was yesterdays.

    • Joyelle

      So excited!!! Just got my free embellished calendar ordered! I’m planning on giving it to my husband from our 3 kids. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE INFO!!! So easy to do, I already had it created last night so I just entered the code from americangeetings.com and it took less than 5 min to order…and saved over $25.00!!! LOVE Southern Savers!

    • Amy

      Just got a free $25 keychain for my mom for Christmas! Thanks so much for posting this deal!!

    • Michelle in Martinez

      i just checked for the heck of it, and americangreetings still has their freebies up…i got the $25 gift card! yea and thanks :)

    • Sarah Epp

      FYI – the codes are NOT unique!!! My sister received the same code that I did. Meaning – the promotion is NOT for the 1st 20,000 that request, its for the 1st 20,000 that use the code! SO HURRY!!

      • Jessica

        What code did you use? Mine was C3733859796. I chose the clutch, but at checkout, it only took off the shipping. So then I tried making a calandar, but my code was specifically for the clutch, so that didn’t work either! Grr!

        • Lisa

          That is the code I have for the clutch, but I am in the process of making it. I did the cards using a different email address and it all came off. Totally free.

        • Ashley

          Your code worked for me and the calendar!!!

    • Thank you, Jenny! I just made my photo clutch (it took me several tries!).
      I am so excited and can’t wait to see what it looks like. This will make a great gift!

    • Ashley

      It is now almost 1 pm and i am just remembering about this… spent hours yesterday getting my calendar ready and i forgot!!! but, i took the advice of another of using the code listed above as american greetings ad is over and no longer there and it worked!!! i just entered C3733859796 that someone gave and it came out free!!!

    • britani

      So i figured out that the card codes and the calendar codes work for the book. there are only four codes and it is one for each item (photcards, calendar, book, and giftcard) so if you wrote down the code then use it or use C3733852365. I used all of my email accounts and got multiple things for free. it is still going on even though it says on the american greetings website that you can no longer get a code. I just used it so i know it works! so get some more free books :)

      • Sarah Epp

        That’s because you are awesome!

    • Juliett

      Just used mine for the calendar C3733858476 for any of the 8×11 calendars. Quite labor intensive but totally free and FREE IS GOOD!! Thanks, Jenny! Also got a clutch earlier. Has anyone confirmed that it is the 1st 20,000 redeemed or 1st codes given out? I have Christmas with the other side of the family and was waiting to get pics from that before using my other codes but don’t want to miss out. Thanks again!

    • Kristi

      This was still working last night with any of the above codes! Thanks!
