Pics taking up too much space on your phone? Want some easy gifts for the grandparents?
Here’s how I get the best prices on prints and photo gifts.
And keep in mind, the deals will only increase and sweeten the closer we get to the holidays (especially Christmas)!
1. Shutterfly is the best for ongoing deals — like free photo books and prints.
Shutterfly is known for being super generous with its freebies.
TIP: Look for free Shutterfly photo book codes whenever you buy a new camera from any retailer. They might show up on your receipt or in the packaging!
2. York Photo always has something for free — like prints and photo mugs.
They periodically run some other legit deals. Right now they have FREE ceramic photo mugs when you pay shipping, which starts at $5.99.
TIP: You can often find deals on Groupon with York!
3. Buy 100 prints at Snapfish for basically free.
Snapfish routinely offers free prints or free photobooks when you pay for shipping.
Right now you can get 100 4×6 prints for basically free — $1 plus shipping!
TIP: Download Honey and they’ll automatically apply the best promo codes to your order!
4. If you’re a Prime member, Amazon will print AND ship some of your prints for free!
In the past, they’ve offered 50 prints shipped free for Prime members! You can grab that deal one time whenever it’s offered.
And there’s no excuse for you to keep photos on your phone, since Amazon also offers free photo storage — 5GB for all customers and an additional 5GB for Prime members.
5. Grab some cheap (or free) photo collages at Walgreens!
Walgreens runs online photo deals weekly, and you can pick up most orders at your local store to avoid any shipping costs.
Some of their recent offers have been 11×14 canvas prints for $10, and totally free 8×10 collage prints.
Their discount and freebie deals never last more than a few days, so don’t wait if you want some cheap photo gifts.
6. CVS has some great deals — like $0.99 photo magnets.
If you live close to a CVS, it’s worth noting that they also offer free 8×10 prints with in-store pickup several times a year.
They also run some pretty great photo gift deals if you watch their promo codes. I just saw them offer photo magnets for $0.99 with free store pickup.
7. Pay attention to Costco around Thanksgiving for photo prints as low as $0.10!
Have a Costco membership? They frequently lower the cost of their prints to $0.10 per 4×6 photo.
If you’re looking for photo cards, Costco usually offers price cuts (at least $10 off) during Thanksgiving weekend.

8. Parabo Press and Chatbooks are great for all your Insta memories!
Parabo specializes in printing Instagram pics, and they’ll give you your first 25 free!
Chatbooks will give you a $10 Instagram photo book shipped free!
9. Decorate your walls with a FREE canvas from Canvas People.
Canvas People routinely offers serious discounts, including an 11×16 or 4×4 for free!
You will have to pay shipping, but you’re still getting at least a 65% savings!
