Photoworks Free Photo Gift on Tuesday

by on November 30, 2009 3:22 pm

Update @ 11 pm CT: It started and I’ve got an updated post here!

Starting on Tuesday, December 1 the first 20,000 who register at AmericanGreetings.com will get a free photo clutch book, 25 holiday cards, or an 11×8 calendar from Photoworks (includes free shipping). If you don’t want one of those three photo gifts, you also have the option to get a $25 credit.

I don’t know exactly what time this starts, but if you’re awake I’d start checking at midnight. You will be able to register with your email address and then get a coupon code to use for your purchase. Thanks goes to Common Sense with Money for the details on this time-sensitive offer!

Here’s the value of the freebies they are offering, so you can choose which one you want and plan ahead a little. You may even want to upload a few photos to Photoworks today and start designing because tomorrow I’m sure their site will be running slower than usual. I’m not sure how long you’ll have to redeem the coupon code, but it would be nice to place your order this week if you’re planning on using this photo gift as a Christmas gift.

Free Photo Clutch
$16.95 value
20 page 4×4 photo book

Free 25 Holiday Cards
$24.75 value
25 single-sided photo paper cards

11×8 Horizontal Photo Calendar
$19.95 value
need 20+ photos to design it

Remember you don’t have to order your free photo gift tomorrow, but you do need to be one of the first 20,000 to ask for the coupon code!

okay, so how am I suppose to get the code ? Will they send it to you or do you have to ask for it ?

Do you know if this has to be a new account or not?

Heather November 30, 2009 at 4:05 pm

You'll have to register for the coupon code starting Tuesday, I think they'll email you the code. I don't think this is a "new account" promotion – just limited to first 20,000. I'll update everyone early tomorrow morning!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

Thank you Heather for explaining more. I love the freebie photo things. Thanks so much !!

Any idea what time zone "midnight" is?

Reply

Rachael November 30, 2009 at 4:54 pm

I am also confused about the "register" part of the promotion. Is this only available to people registering with Photoworks for the first time or does it include those of us who already have an account/are registered with them? If you find out any insight into this situation, please pass the info on! Thank you and great job letting us all know about this wonderful deal!

Heather November 30, 2009 at 4:57 pm

You can register starting tomorrow – it's probably a simple form to fill out with your name and email address. I don't think this promotion is limited to new accounts only. We'll all find out more details as soon as they post it. I'll be posting an update around 5 am CT if there is anything to update everyone about!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

You have to pay for the sign up, so technically it's not 100% free (unless they plan on waiving the fee starting tomorrow). The minimum plan is 1 month for 4.99.

Reply

Cassie November 30, 2009 at 5:31 pm

I did a ''test'' registration to see if what Ralna said has any hold to it… she's right, mostly. you have to pay to sign up, and it is a minimum of 1 month, but for $2.99… so if it's free tomorrow sure, but if not i guess not ๐Ÿ™‚

Reply

Heather November 30, 2009 at 5:34 pm

Thanks, I'll wait to get more details tomorrow. I don't know what type of "registration" will be required. They might set-up a special form to enter, and not require you to pay any membership fee. We'll find out and I'll update as soon as I know what's required!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

scratch that, when i went to the common sense with money page, it says you have to click on the photoworks link on the american greetings site and enter ur email address there. i am already registered on that site, so i know that that one is free. so maybe it will be completely free ๐Ÿ™‚

…I started uploading my photos Sunday night and put the book together. I had to register an email address to save the book, but it did not cost a thing. I figure, I know how it works, so I can register a second email address this evening if I have to. I am going to start trying 11pm EST even though I am CST…

Reply

Ralna November 30, 2009 at 6:19 pm

Thanks Heather! Would be great if it was totally free, then I could have my sister's Christmas gift covered too ๐Ÿ™‚ The photoworks site has A LOT of great deals going on even if it's not free. The 20% off and free shipping for the next 4 days is wonderful.

Mel November 30, 2009 at 9:34 pm

I ordered the free photobook they promoted during the Bonnie Hunt show last week and received an email today saying it was "delayed." Not very hopeful on getting that one or this one. Why would they add more promos when they can't even get out previous ones they advertised? ๐Ÿ™

Ralna November 30, 2009 at 10:50 pm

Cassie-I don't know where you're looking, but this is exactly what it says on AmericanGreetings.com when I go to register:"Select the plan that fits your budget:1 month $4.99 Compared tothe monthly: 1 year $19.99 Save 66% 2 years $25.99"I have no reason to give false information. I already had enough difficulty with the last photoworks promotional offer (as it seems others did as well) & just want to make sure everyone gets as much info as possible.Isn't this site about HELPING others?

The registration for this "freebie" has not started, so I'm not going to try and guess if it really is free or requires a paid registration of some kind.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

If your registering for photoworks it should be free, you only have to pay when you register for american greetings.

I just clicked one button and got a coupon code! I didn't even enter my email address? It just worked for me @ midnight! I'm saving my code to use later. It expires December 31st.

Dawn November 30, 2009 at 11:06 pm

its 12:01 am and i just tried this. you do have to pay….1mo membership $2.99, or 1yr $15.99, or 2yr $24.99. To me not worth it unless you will use website to purchase other things. May be way to work around it there is a 7day trial period…..but not sure if that will allow you to get codes for photo website…THANKS AS ALWAYS though for your wonderful freebies!!!

Looks like the code is the same. I got the code on one computer and then went to get one on another computer and it's the same code. You are also able to go back a page and click a different gift and get another code for it.

I went to americangreetings.com. On the right hand side, there was a place to click to get free gift. CLick and it give you the code. It's good until Dec. 31. Didn't even ask for my email address. Just said to print out for records.

You don't have to pay…just click the link on the AG website. It's on the right hand side about halfway down.

I just got my code! It worked as soon as the clock hit midnight. I refreshed the site and the graphic popped right up. It never even asked for an email address, just requested that I pick one of four gifts. I picked the $25 coupon so I can pick whatever works best for me.Code is good until December 31st and you can only get the code while it lasts. Good today (Dec 1st) only! It's running smoothly so far so hurry!

Shannon November 30, 2009 at 11:09 pm

I didn't have to pay anything. I'm not sure where people are getting confused?

Ralna November 30, 2009 at 11:12 pm

I was confused because I didn't know there would be a seperate link on the site. The link didn't appear until midnight ๐Ÿ™‚ It is totally free and no sign up, takes you straight to the photoworks site. Glad I started my project already, order went through fine!

Hi I just got done with this freebie and it is all free I did not have to sign up for anything but photoworks, there is an ad on the right hand side and you click on it then it ask you what item you want free, it then gives you a code for the free item. Its nice and free!

Shelly November 30, 2009 at 11:20 pm

I do not see anything showing a free gift or freebie. Is it supposed to be on the home page for the site?

how did you all get it to work? I had already made my book and at 12:01am I used the link and went to the AG site but I don't see anywhere to get a free gift??? What am I supposed to do? Can someone please explain it to me I must be missing something cause I can't find a place to "register" at all and I don't see any link to a free gift.

i just wanted to say thank you, heather. i saw this post in the evening and went to work making a calendar. the baby woke up to eat at about 11:30 so i was able to get the coupon code and place my order without any problems. i'm really excited. thanks for sharing this!

For the anonymous commenter who's having trouble finding the link… You might want to switch browsers. It didn't show up in my Firefox browser, but when I switched to Internet Explorer, it was fine. The link is on the main American Greetings page, right side, halfway down.

Kellie December 1, 2009 at 12:30 am

Thanks for the tip on switching browsers. I did that & it worked. For some reason it wouldn't come up with Firefox. Thanks for the freebie & tip!

Pamela December 8, 2009 at 8:18 am

I have to say I'm very disappointed with photoworks. I couldn't get my card done until 6 days later and they had run out of photo cards? I think they should've given out only 40,000 coupons instead of the first 40,000 that used their coupons…I won't use them again. The only reason I paid for these is b/c it took time to pin my husband down to pic out the cards and pic.

Diana December 9, 2009 at 12:10 am

Thanks so much for the tip! Who gets free stuff like this anymore. I just got my free photobook of my artwork, and it turned out really nice. It's like a coffee table portfolio. I did have a little trouble. I had loaded a bunch of photos and then all of a sudden I couldn't get back into my account. So, I went to bed and the next day was able to finish. Now that I have it, I wished I had filled every page! Turned out great. I love your site! I also got our Xmas cards from See Hear, too. Such a deal!Dianahttp://dianaartblog.blogspot.com/

Vdragon December 9, 2009 at 10:21 am

I have to say I'm disapointed. I guess I waited too long. I managed to get the code, but when I tried to order the book today using the $25 off code it says 'This promotion has reached its maximum limit. Please view Current Coupon Codes for other ways to save on your order.' Also the price of the photobook went up. That was a lot of time wasted on a book I will not be ordering. I would not consider using Photoworks again. I have not had luck with any of their offers. This was one of the most difficult photobook websites to use. (and I've used many)

I started my calendar project on the 1st after successfully registering. Just finished up, having spent hours getting it right. I tried the code and it said that it's reached it's maximum limit. This is very disappointing, as the calendar was going to be a special giff.

Anonymous December 9, 2009 at 4:20 pm

For all the people who are complaining because they tried to use the code recently & it didn't work, you should have kept up with the posts on the site. It was mentioned time and time again as an f.y.i that everyone should use their codes asap because of how they were distributed. It did not take a genius to figure out how the codes were working, so if you didn't create your project in time, you can't be mad at the site. It was a FREE offer afterall! I LOVED mine, they did a great job on it.

Copied down my coupon code the day you posted this. Created calendar day, coupon code said it had reached its maximum uses. What?!?!

Reply

The Keel Gang December 13, 2009 at 9:55 am

I do not agree it was easy to understand the coupon code had to be used right away. When I registered for the coupon code it seemed to be an individual coupon code & even said you had until January 31st to use it. Very misleading. Not everyone can see things the same way. I never saw any direct links or posts that would have told me I had to use it ASAP. Oh well. Better luck next time.
