4 kinds of discounts + where to enter a promo code

Using a coupon to get a discount is easy. In fact, there are really only two methods for taking advantage of an offer: instant discounts, or promo codes.

  1. Sales or Instant discounts occur when you click on a promotional link or banner advertising a sale, and it immediately applies the savings to the prices on their site. An example of this might be a link saying, “save up to 50% on photo books this week!” In this case, just clicking over to their site will offer you the discounted price.
  2. Saved / Special Offers: If you are an existing customer, you may have earned rewards from previous purchases, or qualify for special coupons. At checkout you can click, “See saved offers” (next to the ‘Promos / Gift Certificates’ field) to see what coupons or freebies you can get!
  3. Payment method – At checkout you will be offered an incentive like a free item or discount on your order if you use a specific payment method like Visa Checkout or Masterpass. I got a free iPhone case this way! 
  4. Promotional codes – Every week Shutterfly has at least 3 or more promo codes out there, so always look for them before placing any order! Before finalizing your order, you’ll be able to review it, and there will be an area to enter a code like this:

enter shutterfly promo code After entering a code under, “promos / gift certificates,” you’ll get a message detailing the validity and terms of the code below the “checkout” button. If you click the “promos” links next to the various logos, you’ll see what promotions they offer if you use their payment method.

4 ways to get free shipping at Shutterfly.com:

Depending on your specific order, free delivery might be your best savings. Here’s are several potential ways to have your order ship free:

  1. Orders over $29 ship free – The good news is that every month their current free shipping code renews. The only catch is that you have to spend a minimum amount to get free delivery, usually $29 or $39 to qualify.
  2. Free shipping with no minimum – Finding a code for free delivery with no minimum is rare. I assume this is because most orders are for 4×6 prints. Shipping these small, $3 orders free would probably cause them to lose money every time!
  3. Free delivery upgrades – There’s also usually a Shutterfly promo code that can give you expedited shipping for the price of economy. If you can’t afford to wait around for standard or economy speed delivery, consider this code. If you do decide to use it, you must select “expedited shipping” at checkout before entering the promotional code, or it won’t apply.
  4. Free Rush Shipping on certain items – Also look for certain seasonal promotions that ship specific products for free. This usually includes personalized photo cards of some sort, like tine-sensitive announcements or first birthday invitations

The best coupons combine a discount + free delivery

Certain on-site sales and coupons are stackable with their free shipping code. You’ll have to spend a minimum amount (usually $29+, so it won’t work for most orders for prints) but it’s worth trying entering the free shipping code on top of another coupon to see if it works. An example of this is a recent on-site sale for 50% off photo books. The discount was applied automatically, and then at checkout I was able to add their (ongoing) coupon code “SHIP39” for free delivery on $39 minimum orders. That’s a great deal!

Shutterfly Free offers: photo books, prints, calendars, etc.

Just about every week Shutterfly offers a free item. These are great, but you have to pay for shipping. Not a big deal when you are getting a free photo book or calendar worth $25, but significant when you have to pay $4 to ship “free” address labels or a free luggage tag.

Although the smaller “free” items may not be worth it after paying shipping fees, consider adding them to an existing order, (less shipping cost) to make it a better deal. shutterfly masterpass promo You can also get freebies at checkout from credit card companies when you select their payment method. Just click “view promos” next to their logo to see their latest offers!
