    I figured it out! It was because I was using multiple different emails BUT a tip for everyone.  If you then delete all these items from your cart leaving an empty cart, Then order them from your portfolio they will ALL be free even from different emails!!!! I don't know why that works but it did for me!!!!!

    a) trying to add a second one of the free item - for example, if you have one free pen in your cart, if you add another, then the first one will be regular price and the second one will be free

    or

    B) you clicked on a different link to order the other item for free, during which promotion the previous item wasn't free (like if you have one email with free postcards and one email with a free pen but postcards cost $4.80, and you clicked the free pen email your postcards will now be $4.80) also if you're playing around with your vistaprint like trying to find a coupon code or whatever, clicking those links that get you 25% off or whatnot makes everything in your cart regular price, but 25% off.. get it?

     

    Not everything has to have your logo or photo on it! My free pens and free tshirts are vistaprint 'designs' but we edited them as much as we could and they look like things we would have designed anyway



     


    I love that Tule!!! I bought a white one it is such a great deal and a good length.... it is a little stiff that was the only thing I found but it would be great for chair bows or something.... I might keep my eyes peeled for our colour now......

    The cutest thing I found that many of you may like is the little blue plastic suitcase container on wheels with a pullout handle.

    It comes with 6 mini markers and is 1.50$. I am going to take the markers out and use it for my first aid or sewing case! So far I bought just one for us but may put one together for bridesmaids...These containers come in blue or pink.

     

    The M&Ms in containers were only 69 cents each. Our colors are red and turquoise so I only got these two colors. I thought this would be a nice treat that won't melt as much as other chocolates. I also got the mentos. I saw the sesame snaps that were 2 for 1$. Nice snack if your blood sugar is low. Snacky foods aren't always easy to get at all inclusives without going to restaurant or having a meal.The red tulle ribbon is an amazing deal! 1$ This is a raspberry red, more our color but they have brick red, light blue. I bought a few others.

     

    I also stocked up on nice sea shells as it looks like they are gettting rid of them...maybe because summer is almost over;(

     

    The only other things I am planning on adding are the key holders and lanyards and booklet/program.dollarama.jpg

      Tori...I didn't try that (emptying out the cart)...did that allow you to get more than 10 items free in one order?

        I also like the little suitcases with the stuff in them, I could do some up for the kids since there's only like.. two kids going.. and write like "Isabella's Stationary Set" label since I'm sure I'll give her a notepad or journal or whatever in her bag too.. not that there's going to be any shortage of things for kids to do on the cruise ship!

        Ok, next dollarama trip:

        - check for more Advil's

        - Poly to Go

        - Little stationary set suitcases

              I love the little suitcase stationary, I wish I lived closer to the city so I could pick some up. My mom is going to the city next weekend, hopefully they will have them in Winnupeg at the dollarama!!!! Thanks for sharing I love it!!! I went Vista crazy yesterday... got postcards, brochures, posters, mug, t-shirts, return labels, pen, banner, and tote. I keep finding more reasons to order more stuff!!!! I even got stuff for my son's birthday party!!!!!

               

              Has anyone found any good deals on tums or rolaids??? I want to get the rolls and have been having a hard time finding some... not too sure where to look when I do go to the city.

                  Hey!

                  They are called Pashmina group, and they are in a a bit of a skuzzy section of 7th ave ( on the c-train line) so if you are driving down, you will need to park a block or two off and walk to them.. .. infact the sign to their store is spraypainted hahaha.. but the prices are good and i like them :) 

                   

                  their address is: 

                   

                  129 7 Ave SW

                  Calgary, AB T2P 0W5
                  (403) 233-8079

                   

                  i have attached below pictures of the grey one i got for my mom, and the blue ones i got for my bridesmaids..  they have solid ones without the paisley design also... and the "pashmina" label is just a fabric sticker. and they peel off.. they are not sewn to the fabric.. 

                   

                  the lighting on these is bad, so i apologise for the poor picture quality, but it gives you an idea anyway :)

                      You guys really should try pioneer group, I paid less then $105 for 2 dozen pashmina's and that included the fancy shipping costs in a big heavy box. Do you want me to dig them up and take a picture? lol
