    I'm pretty sure I looked like a little kid at Christmas picking up my box :lol: I couldn't even wait to get it home. I was on my way out to lunch with my mom and opened it in her car! I'm very impressed with everything I got though. The quality seems great and I can't wait to use everything this year :)

    What kind of things do you all order from Vista Print? I just bought a $20 Vista Print Groupon worth $80. I've only bought business cards from them before....they are also my classroom website provider.

    What other things do teachers use VP for? I need some ideas so I can spend my $80. ;)

    Oh yes! :)

    I refuse to pay for anything but shipping though. I got an email today that my order has shipped...excited for it to get here! There's one more thing I'd like to order, but I haven't seen free postcards in quite a while :(

    I think I'm already addicted :lol:

    I used the business cards to make cards for things like homework passes, review game rewards, etc... I got two large magnets for my boards. I made a poster with my rules. I also got address labels for me and then a cute sticky note pad. I ordered two large stamps as well.

    I have a rubber stamp that says "This book belongs to Mrs. C.", personalized pens, business card magnets for parents, sticky notes, postcards called "smilegrams", notepads "From the Desk of Mrs. C.", address labels for pen pal letters, and I just ordered a "caution" magnet (small car size) for my chalkboard for work without names and a small poster for displaying book club progress. :D

    I did the Groupon too! I just ordered everything maybe two days ago. I did even spend $25 over the $80 because then I got free shipping. I thought it was a better deal than having to pay like $15 for shipping. I got a medium sized outdoor banner that has my "workshop rules", I made business cards with a stop sign that says something like stop what you're doing and make a better choice, I got 3 car magnets for my behavior system to put on the white board, a bag for all emergency supplies so a sub or I could grab it and go. I also got an outside yard sign for my own kids' birthdays. It's personalized. It was fun picking out stuff! I also made some stuff on there and then just used the picture for my blog pages. Oh...I also got a stamp with my home address since we didn't have one.


    When I open my box, I'm going to be so excited too. This is the first time I ordered where it wasn't "free" stuff. So I spend a total of $45 for quite a few things. I think I'll only get free stuff from now on, but the Groupon was fun to try.

    I'm pretty much convinced the $17 for $70 of products groupon in my area is a good deal! This will be my first order!

    Can I get free stuff still when using the groupon?

    I got a free stamp I know... Not sure if I got anything else free when I used the groupon.

    I didn't try the free stuff with mine because I wanted to not mess up my free shipping. I thought if I wanted something that was free, that I would just order separately. I think you'll see something where if you spend $25 more or something like that, you'll get free shipping. I'd rather pay more and get a product than pay for shipping, which might cost almost the same.

    Does the groupon work with the 50% off sale?

    I think it does. I don't think any of my items were the 50% off ones, but I did get items that were on sale, and it still gave me the sale price.

    I just placed an order! I did what a poster did above and just spent $25 over the voucher so I could get free shipping. It made sense because shipping was going to be $16.87. So why not get products instead for just a bit more? I have to say it was a blast making everything! I can't wait to get it all in the mail!!

    If you use the $17 for $70 groupon voucher, you can still get all the free stuff you want! Also, it gives you 30% off everything in addition to the voucher! So I got $153 worth of stuff for $42.87 (with groupon price, then the $25 over)! Not too shabby!

    To everyone who has ordered before---when you get the free shipping option, how long does it usually take to get to you? I know it says up to 14 days, but does it really take that long?

    Thanks for the push to check it out you guys! I'm a new fan of VP!

    It never takes as long as it says it is going to take for shipping.
