Snapfish: What It Is, Why I Like It, and Why You Need It

Friends, meet Snapfish.  Snapfish is the Librarything for your pictures.  You upload your pictures, share them with your friends, print them, print your friends’ pictures, order photo books (but only if you have a coupon!), and order anything else photo-related that your little heart desires.  Christmas cards, mugs, blankets — Snapfish does everything.

Four-by-six prints are 9 cents each, plus shipping and (for some unknown reason) sales tax. HOWEVER, Snapfish regularly gives coupons, enabling you to get your pictures cheaper than you can at Wal-Mart. And they’re delivered to your door.  (If you’re into instant gratification, this may not be your best option. But if your laziness, like mine, outweighs your need for instant gratification, this is a very nice bonus. Or if you like to do your shopping online at 11:00 p.m. like I do.)

Now, here’s what you will not find out from the Snapfish website:

When you’re using Snapfish, always check first for a coupon.  (If you’re unfamiliar with Retailmenot, you need to become best friends with it. It has coupon codes for most shopping websites.)  I always store up pictures until I find a particularly good deal.

Second, always go through Ebates for your Snapfish orders. You’ll get 8% cash back on Snapfish if you use Ebates. It’s grand.  And you don’t have to do anything — they’ll mail you a check. (I just got my first check, by the way, for $6.88. Not much, but that paid for a goodly portion of my flea market stuff last month! But I digress.)

If you get your pictures and there’s something wrong with them (and that’s only happened once for me), Snapfish will immediately give you a credit towards replacements.

So, now you know everything, and you may proceed to print all your pictures from the comfort of your computer chair.

(Disclaimer — Snapfish has no clue who I am.)

About Charity

I have an inexcusable number of cookbooks (and like to experiment with them), have worked in architectural antiques, and have been sewing most of my life. I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Apparel, Merchandising, & Design from Iowa State University. Doing household things (except for cleaning!) and hunting for antiques are my favorite pastimes.
