Head over here and get:

Free Business Cards (250)
Free Photo Wall Calendars
Free Invitations (10)
Free Tote Bag
Free Photo Flip Book
Free Sticky Notes
Free Rubber Stamps
Free Pen Free
Return Address Labels (140)
Free Postcards (100)
Free Mouse Pad

My Plan:

(1) of every freebie above
(1) additional Photo Wall Calendar $16.74
(1) additional 250 Business Cards $3.99
Total Due: $20.73 (plus tax for some states)

Since you would have to pay something for shipping for all the freebies my thinking is throw in something else that I need and something that can be a Christmas present.  I’m paying about $8 more than I would be for just shipping but getting a good stuff and a deal for those extra $8.  Really I’m getting at least 5 things that can be presents or stocking stuffers if I turn them into photo gifts.

    • Rebekah

      How long is this promotion Jenny? Thanks!

      • momof4

        Are all the free things listed under the tab that says free products? If so, most of the items are no longer offered. It there is another way to find the free totes, photo calander,etc please let me know. I've searched everywhere on their web site.

        • kelleyroo

          Click on the green “Everything for $0” banner at the top of this entry to get to the free items Jenny is referring to.

    • Hartofstonecrafts

      I would also love to know how long it runs, I just bought a few of the free items (I don't have my computer to use actual photos for stuff) but I am extremely happy with the shipping cost for what i did get, hopefully this pormotion lasts for another three days! (we can hope)

    • Pauladeshazo

      If it's free why do they need your credit card or paypal information?

      • littlemama

        You have to pay shipping

    • Drews_Mom

      I just got sooo much cool stuff. This is awsome Jenny…Thank You! Total before discount was 141.20…paid 22.87 (including shipping!)

    • Mary

      This was an awesome deal. All 6 of my items are Christmas presents. I paid less than $20 and saved over $70. Also, I think just for today (the 5th) there's an extra 25% off.

    • Dee2464

      Thanks Jenny, can't wait to get off work and Christmas shop. Connie

    • Glenda Thompson

      I tried going to the website…but I keep gettingan error page….Is anyone else having this problem ???

      • Aburke1214

        Yes, Me too!

      • Aburke1214

        I just clicked on the VistaPrint ad to the right and it worked! =) HTH!!!

        • practice_peace@charter.net

          ….but it only lists some of the free items, not all of them.

      • Phillips4658

        Me too! :(

      • Jen

        Yes, the site is going very slow right now. It's probably overloaded. I'm going to keep trying!

    • cs

      the more you buy from vistaprint, the more frequently they offer you free things…i get emails about once a week, sometimes more, offering me tons of free items.

    • Couponlover10

      Excellent! Vista Print has always had awesome deals and does a great job!

    • phillipsforjesus

      Is there a promo code for free shipping over $20?

    • coupon crazy

      I looked for all the freebie under the free products tab, but there were only a few left. I there another way to find them?

    • Name

      How do you get the free shipping with an order over 20

      • Carmen

        your order has to be more than $25 to get the free standard shipping. I guess it changed. I ordered 2000 business cards to get the free shipping. If I have to pay $30, I would rather get product for my money!

        • Carmen

          by the time I got to the check out, EVERYTHING that WAS free…was NOT free anymore! Guess it took me too long to customize all my 'free' stuff! Suppose I need to pick up my pace a little!??!! LOL

          • Meghan

            If you click back through Jenny's link and then go to your cart, it should update everything to the sale prices. At least, that has been my experience in the past :)

            • Ann

              I had to call them last time they had this deal. Customer service is very nice and helpful. IF you click on one wrong thing, it changes the prices.

        • Becca

          I just came back to SS and clicked the link again it saved everything in my cart and the free shipping then showed up for my $21.00 order.
          thx jenny

    • obsessed w/ coupons

      Vista Print's site is awful. I tried to order freebies, but shipping wasn't free. Then I tried to go back and those items weren't free any more. Sad!

    • guest

      NO free shipping here either…my order is $27 but shipping is $13! that's stout!

    • Melanieplynch

      Having trouble! I tried setting up the business cards, but when I got to the end, they were $3.99 instead of being FREE. Where did I go wrong? Can someone who has done this successfully tell us exactly how you did it?

      • Melanieplynch

        I think I just figured out that there are only certain designs that are FREE. Pay close attention because if you click on a link to see more designs, you're probably moving out of the FREE zone.

      • Amyzcakes

        There are no free cards any more. (I got free ones over the summer.) They are $3.99 but still well worth it.

    • tori729

      Every time Jenny posts a Vistaprint deal on here I can't get to the site. :(

    • Brooke

      No free shipping is showing for me. I ordered almost $100 worth after free stuff. They just lost my business. I will NOT pay $30 for shipping

      • Melanieplynch

        Have you ordered from them before? I was wondering if the Free Shipping thing was only for new customers.

    • A Troller

      Thank You so much for the awesome deal update! I am having so much fun making this. For those of you who can't get to it you have to go through Jenny's post. Also if you are using a MAC I have friends who say they can't get to it either. Not sure how to solve that…unless you try going through firefox.

      • Rachel

        it works fine on my mac…

      • Kate

        It works fine on my Mac too.

    • Heather

      I have not been able to get the free shipping, and my total is 23.46?? Help

    • Praise Jesus first

      not totally free with shipping

    • Rmhill1978

      It's charging me for everything, ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    • Christine

      Doesn't vista print have a 5/25 coupon on coupons.com? Can it be used with this deal to get another 5 dollars of free product since we have to spend 20 anyway?

    • Yumi

      Looks like free shipping is only for new customers… bummer.

    • TIPSTER316

      It's working- click on Jenny's link, and it will say what's free/what's not. I just saved $83…all free stuff, and decided to make some cute keychains(not free)…which qualified me for free shipping. Awesome X mas gifts!

      • Tracy

        Did you get free shipping b/c you're a new customer? Or because you spent a minimum amount? If it was the spending- how much did you have to spend to qualify for free shipping? Thanks!

        • Amyzcakes

          Free shippig for $20 orders also.

          • Amyzcakes

            Correction. It is for new customers only.

    • michele

      Thank you soooo much for this! I ordered 4 Christmas gifts, my girls birthday invitations and my Christmas cards. Also gots lots of free stuff all for under $25! I really appreciate you sharing this – it saved me so much money!

    • Kate

      That was amazing! I got so many Christmas gifts. I also got my Christmas cards to get the free shipping!!!!

    • LenaD

      When does this deal expire?

    • Jaimeprice2010

      I am trying to the get the free business cards and my cart keeps saying $3.99. What am I doing wrong?

    • michele

      this was awesome! again, thank you for this site that you run. what a blessing!! i just purchased $159.22 worth of merchandise for $24.00. (i got all the free items, and then purchased something i wanted for $20 to get the free shipping…rather than pay $25 for the shipping on the free items) I loaded up on personalized and picture gifts for aunts, uncles, grandparents. this takes a good bit of time to load pics and apply to calendars, photos books…however, it's worth the time to save the money and get virtually free gifts to hand out at the holidays.

    • Rmhill1978

      Finally got it to work half way, Got $125.03 woth of stuff for $22.72!!! Thanks Jenny

      Still was charged $3.99 for the business cards & I had to make my product value over $20 to get free shipping, so I rather have product then throwing it in to shipping so I got extra labels!!!

    • Bamabobbie

      When I entered my info to ck out with over $20. purchase plus free thing it was still charging me for shipping???? Don't understand.

    • SSheila

      Is the shipping only free if you are a new customer?

      • Christine

        You should get free shipping if you spend over $20.00

    • Christine

      Thank You! Got $176.95 worth of items for only $27.98 That is worth sitting in front of the computer!

    • Holly

      Wow, that was a job!! It took nearly all day, but i got $138 worth of stuff for $25. I did have to call at the end because free shipping link was broken. But the friendly cs rep processed the order and refunded the shipping. Now I have so many Christmas presents done! and its only Oct 5!!! TY JENNY!!!!

    • Kristen

      Awesome deal. just made super cute xmas presents! spent 22.73. Saved 130 something and got free shipping!

    • Bstanton

      Awesome deal! Got tons of stuff for my small business, Christmas gifts, and enough gift tags and stationary to qualify for free shipping! $178.63 for $20! Best deal I've done here, thanks Jenny.

    • Emily

      Plus 5.0% at Ebates!

    • Patterson2

      Wonder how long these deals are good for?

    • Fishstick

      Anyone know when the deal expires?

    • Amanda

      VISTA PRINT IS A WONDERFUL SITE, thanks Jenny!!! For those of you having problems, you may be new to vista print. I am familar with the site and I already had an account…so what I had to do for EACH item that was free….

      1- click on the link jenny posted

      2-create the item

      3-place it in my cart

      4- logout

      Then I had to repeat the steps above for each item. I have learned that to get the items free you have to be directed to the free items from the original link (i.e. like the one jenny posted). So, no, the prices of the items aren't going up…you just need to go back to the original link. I placed an order for every freebie plus over 20 dollars in other stuff and my shipping was only 7 bucks. I am thinking the free shipping was only for new customers, but went ahead and emailed customer service to see :) hope this helps!

    • Nikpik27

      disappointed. unable to load photos as I had to scan them through my HP photosmart 3 in 1 and vista is not compatible with photosmart. don't know how to transfer them to another format if that is even possible…..

    • I love VistaPrint! I have ordered my Christmas cards and return address labels from them for years, and have now started taking advantage of all their free deals. It is amazing what they are willing to give away! My daughter loves the free stamps. Instead of getting a return address stamp, I have picked the ones with the shapes and then put her name on it. Nothing makes a 4 year old's day like being able to stamp their own name over and over again!

    • couponingisnotfortheweak

      Thanks Jenny! Mom and M-n-L Christmas…done. Awesome!

    • Mandi

      I noticed that the items I had in my cart earlier today now had a price attached to them and when I called CS he politely stated that there is a limit of 10 free items. :-( I wish I had known that before I spent 2 hours downloading photos… Still a great deal though! I got over $120 worth for $20!!

    • Ashleigh

      I just finished ordering (it's 10.45pm) and I spent $22 and got $98 worth of free stuff including free shipping. This deal is still working and is a great way to get some cute stocking stuffers :-) Thanks Jenny!

    • Nancybgood14

      I keep trying to do the order but. Then when i see i make mistake i try to cancel it. but it seem to save everything. also tried CS tab but do not see a phone number and now i am tiered if deal is still later this week i will try again.
      Thank you jenny. This was interesting.

    • kristi

      Got lots of freebies and ordered an extra calendar and set of contact cards for me(got the freebies for hubby). Spent about $22 saved $98. Love it!

    • Barb P

      What great deals! THANK YOU Jenny for sharing this with us.

    • Teej

      Anyone having trouble opening the site? I've been trying ALL morning. Get a message saying cannot connect, site may be unavailable or busy try again in a few. :(

    • Rerbige

      has anyone had a sketchy charge show up on their card after ordering from Vistaprint. I have. It was charged at exactly the same time as the VistaPrint – here is the text of it:

      VISA Check POS Debit $0.00

      Anybody else run into this? Should I be concerned?

      • kristin

        I just noticed the same thing on my account. I plan on checking into that.

      • kristin

        I just called my bank and asked about it and they said that it was suspicious and canceled my card right away. You may want to check into that.

      • Mandi

        Sounds bad to me too. I ALWAYS use Paypal on orders like these just for that reason…

      • Rynna


        The exact same thing happened to me today after placing an order with VistaPrint today. I googled “RBS the Netherlanga us” and found several people reporting similar stories. Apparently running the $0.00 charge is a way for scam artists to see whether your account is active. I simply called the number on the back of my debit card and reported it stolen.

    • Tworedsox

      thanks for the tip, i ordered everything above plus some postcards for our business. several items will be great christmas gifts!

    • Caity

      Thanks so much Jenny! I plan to use the postcards for Christmas cards. Hopefully we'll take a picture tomorrow morning and get them ordered before the deal runs up! :-)

    • Heather

      yay! $128 worth for $21 shipped! Thanks, Jenny!

    • Jwtdrjr

      Thank you….Spent $22 and saved 145! Here we come Christmas!

    • Nicolle Johnson

      im having trouble getting free shipping, even though i have 21.24 in chart. help please?

    • Gagirl09

      thank you spent 18 saved 100 thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Steph

      Thanks for the info Jenny! I'm new to your site, but loving it (and the great savings) already! I just ordered from VistaPrints and got $187.82 for $20.20 and qualified for the free shipping. I also noticed at the end it asked if you wanted a free magazine subscription and that if you decline it gave me a link to a rebate form for a $20 rebate!! That means this order should be completely free (well, $0.20)… Anyone else see the rebate or have done a rebate like this one?

    • Cblakefl

      This still works but I did need to log out between each item and I couldn't figure out how to go thru ebates. Only worked thru this link. Was a great deal for Christmas, thanks.

    • Arie

      I got my VistaPrint order and I thought I'd comment with a review of the products I ordered, in case anyone was interested in the information. By the time I had a chance to do it, you could only get 10 free things, so I didn't get everything.

      I ordered from the free stuff:
      Photo flip book – The free one is the 4×6 one that is normally $9.99. I was very disappointed in this. It was okay quality, but it has white flecks all throughout that are clearly part of the printing process and not flaws in my photos. This is especially noticeable on the front cover which has a thick black border that is not part of my image. The front is also very scratched up and has marks where something was rubbed across the entire surface repeatedly. This happened before it was packaged, because I actually paid extra for the protective cover, that didn't protect it from anything (the damage was done before the cover was put on it).

      Small tote bag – Normally $12.99. I chose one of the preset designs and added some of my own text. This was very good quality. Seems to be nice and sturdy. The printing is clean and crisp (only did custom text). I wouldn't say it's worth $13, though. I can go to pretty much anywhere and buy a similar or better tote for much less. The markup isn't worth the custom text to me.

      Mousepad – Normally $7.99 + $2.99 for the thicker pad + $4.99 “collage upload fee” to upload your photos. If you use the same photos on all items you create, you don't need to pay again to upload them. This was very, very disappointing. The mousepad was nice and thick, but the printing quality was very poor. I understand that printing on a textured mousepad will result in both half-tones and a “broken” sort of dotted image, but I ordered a nearly identical mousepad from seehere with the same picture and Seehere's was *beautiful*. I would never spend actual money on this product, especially with all those add-on mark-ups.

      Pen – Normally $4.99. I used one of their images and added custom text. The pen is okay writing quality (not Bic quality, more like Papermate, little bit of drag, but writes smoothly enough). The customized part is pretty, with clean, clear printing, but the pen is *extremely* cheap plastic. The sliver part at the top is also very cheap plastic. It's an okay pen, but I would never pay $5 for one of these cheap plastic pens. Any office store offer much better quality custom pens for a much lower price.

      Sticky note – Normally $4.99. They're sticky notes. Not as sticky as the name brand, but they work just as well as any generic. I got one of their designs with custom text. Printing is clear and crisp. That said… I don't think 1 pad of sticky notes is worth $5. I would not actually pay for these. Again, the personalization isn't worth the markup to me.

      Rubber stamp – Normally $12.99. I got black with our names and address. I can't review this because they included the housing, but not the actual address plate. They come in separate pieces and you have to assemble it yourself. The housing has a sticky pad you're supposed to attach the address plate to, then you're supposed to stamp on the included blank label and insert the label into the top of the housing.

      Flat invitation – Normally $7.99 for 10 + $2.99 for color backside + $4.99 collage upload fee. I paid for the color back, everything else was included. These came out very nicely. Good paper stock, good quality printing. However $8 for 10 “flat invitations” is VERY pricey when you consider the postcards are $24.99 ($34.98 w/color back) for 100 and pretty much the same exact thing. I'd suggest getting postcards instead.

      Postcard – Normally $24.99 for 100 ($34.98 with color back) + $4.99 collage upload fee. I got a blank back. These came out very well, too. Good printing quality. These are definitely worth the normal price.

      Return address labels – Normally $7.99 for 140 + $4.99 collage upload fee. I used one of their designs and just put my name and address on them. I actually got 216 even though I ordered 140. They just put several sheets of 18 address labels each in there. The printing is nice and crisp, but I could have made the exact same labels at home for less. I'd say this isn't worth doing at all, since you can buy blank labels and print anything you want on them at home for much less total cost per label.

      Business cards – Normally $19.99 (sometimes $14.99) for 250 if you don't want the vista print info on them. The printing quality on these cards is again very good, clean and crisp. The price seems to be comparable to any other business card printing service. If you don't mind the very discrete vistaprint promo on the back, you can always get these free. There is no logo, only subtle text reading “Business Cards are FREE at http://www.vistaprint.com!” on the back. I think these are definitely worth it at either price, but especially for free, if you don't mind the promo on the back.

      I also ordered some other things to get my order total up to $25 for the free shipping. Since shipping would have been around $20, it was worth it to add some extras for basically $5 more…
      100 envelopes – I got these for the postcards since I'm using them as holiday cards. They are envelopes and there are 100 of them. Normal quality, nothing special about them.

      25 small magnets – $12.99 for 25 business card-sized magnets + $4.99 collage upload fee. I used a black and white photo of my daughter that I cropped in my own photo editing software to the proper dimensions. I found vista print's software difficult to use to crop to the proper size without loosing important parts of the image (due to how it would resize the image when enlarging to cover the entire printable surface). The printing quality on this was excellent. Very clean and crisp. Since I got a black & white image, I don't know how it would be in color. The price for these does seem reasonable for the quality, though I find the “upload fees” a ridiculous add-on fee on the non-free items. I bought these to include in holiday cards for immediately family and close friends. I bought the business card sized magnets instead of the larger photo magnets because I could get 25 nice sized magnets instead of 10 of the larger ones for the same price.

      In conclusion, most of the products were poor or very poor quality and/or not remotely worth actually paying Vista Print's prices for them. For free they will do nicely for treasure drawer gifts. The exceptions being the cards (business, flat invitation & postcards) and the magnets, which were very good quality. I would not, however, order flat invitations for $8 for 10 when you can order 100 postcards for $25 and they are the same thing.
