I know there are a bunch of threads about this but my search brought up nada. (Whats up with the search function on 2peas?) i love winkflah ($.06 / pic) but the shipping is pricey and goes up with the # of pics you order instead of leveling off. I need to place a gargantuan order so I'm hoping to keep the cost/ 4x6 at $.10 or lower. is this a fools errand?

CVS is great with a sale and the CVS bucks.

Walgreens often has prints for 10cents each with an order of 50 ore more.

I have always been happy with Shutterfly. I preorder 4x6 for 9 cents (may have even gotten 8cents one time). Then, when I have a big order, will get enough of the 5x7 photos (rarely 8x10) to reach 30 dollars for free shipping. the 4x6 do NOT count toward the 30 for free shipping if you do it that way, though...

I prefer snapfish. They have great deals pretty often. I made this suggestion on another post, but what I did was pick 3 pictures and order them from a few different sites and see which ones you like the best.

hmmm snapfish v. shutterfly???

i used to be avid walgreens customer for photo printing since they were the cheapest store in town but lately they've been messing up my prints (i.e. cropping when i didn't ask to therefore cutting some people out of the photos!!) BUT they do have great customer service and one hour photo is the same price as regular prints so i can get them right away and scrap

Costco is usally .13 a print but sometimes they have coupons. Also I've heard if you order over a certain amount the cost is supposed to go down to .09 a print... I think they also ship but I usually just go pick them up in an hour.

So that is 300 prints for $3.00. That's insane! How much is shipping?

Not very much, usually about 4 bucks.

You can find Snapfish's tiered shipping pricing policy here . I figured shipping for 300 prints to be about $14.59, so $17.59 total. That would make each print about $0.06 apiece!

Above poster is 100% correct--I just had that precise amount in shipping with the order I placed! Odd...it never seemed like that much in the past, my mind must be slipping, lol. Use Ebates with Snapfish!!

Ordered 300 from there yesterday and working on another order, but I agree... I don't remember my shipping being so high last time I ordered... still a great deal at around .06 each.

I have ordered regularly from Shutterfly and from York Photo (Thanks to Shimelle for a coupon.) I have loved the photos from both companys. I would set up an account with all three companys (including snapfish). That way you get emails when they are offering great deals. I also find that if you keep a couple items in your cart at all times that you occassionly get a coupon from things setting in your cart. 2peas sent out a code not too long ago to people who had things in their carts. Shutterfly also sent me a $5 off for having something in my cart...$5 usually covers the shipping. Plus with York they have a refer a friend where if you refer a friend you get $10 in credit and the new friend gets 60 free 4x6. so if anyone is intersted just peamail me your email and I will refer you so you can get the free 4x6's and it will help me out also.

My last order was $38 for 350 4x6 and 8 5x7 which is 10cents each with shipping included.

I also love shutterfly. I will also try Snapfish this week.


It was fate that I would enjoy paper crafts...my name is Sharmon (like the TP)!

I also buy the 4x6 preorders & always get free shipping over $30. I only order 4x6 photos, no enlargements.
