    Ok Ladies, i've been seeing on here how a lot of you received free things from Vistaprints......whats the trick?  I get the emails and tried last night for pens, I was able to get 1 free personalized pen but then had to pay almost $5 for shipping!!  Please share ways of getting multiples I would probably want about 25 of each!

     

    Pens

    Door Hangers (I saw on here someone got them from Vistaprint but couldn't find them on the website)

    Anything!

     

     

    Thanks!!

    I have gotten a few free things from vistaprint, but each time I have to pay like $15-20 shipping costs, so really its not that free!

     

    And to get multiples, you have to make that many orders.  So you have to place one order, go back into your email and do it all again, 25 times and pay shipping costs 25 times.

      We've been ordering for a while (me and my Mom) so we have several pens, note books, note pads, tshirts, etc. Yes you do have to pay shipping (especially if you get your big Just Married banner or whatever it raises shipping costs) every time, but there's no way you're going to pay those prices for 'free' PERSONALIZED products - the personalization is the kicker, you try to go somewhere else and get one pen personalized with you and your grooms name/wedding date/thank you note etc

       

      You can only order up to 10 free things per order then things start costing money, so go for it, get a free pen, note pad, note book (two different things), keychain, sticky notes, tshirt, hat, then people use the free Rack Cards for stuff like the door hangers since they are a harder like card stock and long. They do have multiples of some stuff free, like if you order magnets they'll send you 25, not one, and they'll also send you 100 free postcards (great oot fillers, plus you can personalize with whereever you're staying, you can even design your own with a picture of the resort or whatever.. though the resort ppl might not like that lol), and they'll give you 50 free oversized postcards which are really big, I've seen creative ladies on here make their keycard holder tag out of this plus a bookmark, like there was two key card holder tags and a bookmark per postcard, and there's 50, so she would have ended up with 100 tag holder thingies and 50 bookmarks, just search vistaprint on here and you'll see lots of creative ideas. Also return address labels are usually free, free posters, banners, etc..

       

      But yes, shipping and handling + tax will getcha everytime. When they do advertise 'free shipping' its usually for orders like over $40 or whatever.. and my order total usually comes to 'free', so...

          To get good email deals, but best advice I can give is sign up with another email and let it sit. I have 18 new messages in my one email inbox because I have ordered something but not much with that address. They are all amazing deals.


          Happily married on June 11th 2011 to the best husband in the world!

              I think most people use the rack cards for door hangers. 

               

              I like the idea of opening another vistaprint account with a different email- i bet you get different emails sent to each email account!

                  ok great thanks again!  I use my FH email since he orders business cards so I went on there and just ordered Save the Date postcards for our AHR!  Just got 100 of them for free and paid $6.52 for shipping!! I don't think I could have found a better deal!
