    I went to the site and didn't find anything wonderful there :(
    I, do remember thought, that several of you all received emails announcing their great sales. I've neve received any of them to-date and I have ordered from Vista Print.
    Any great sales?

    Wait a week or so; they'll email you something.

    No exaggeration, I receive two or three each week. Would you want me to email you what I have currently?

    How do you know that, Alice?? I've been waiting for years to get an email from them. :(

    JustMe, I'm sending you my email address to your box. Thank you!
    :)

    They must have lost your email address, or your spam filters must be blocking them.

    Like JustMe, I hear from them more often than I speak to my sisters.

    Be patient--you want the one where the headline is, "We're giving away the farm!" I sign on, create items, and save them in the online portfolio so that I can act quickly when a good email shows up.

    Ah! Okay, they apparently are no longer including the little link at the bottom of the emails so you can send that deal to a friend. And I can't just forward it to you since it's connected to my account. What they have designed is a refer-a-friend program. The program is designed for new customers, so it's possible you'll have to create a new account. Hmmm. Basically the program is set up so that if I refer a friend and they make a purchase, I'll receive $5 in free product and they receive great deals. Please know I'm not out to get free product...this is the only way I know to get you connected. :)

    At any rate, I have submitted your email address. If you don't hear from them very soon I'd just call. Their customer service is AMAZING and I'm confident they'd start sending you messages instantly. And constantly. Love it, though. :)

    If you go in and create something, but don't order it, you will get tons of emails almost right away!

    True, Lynn. Messages with this subject line: "Oops! Did you forget?" :)

    I get 3-4 emails a week offering me all sorts of things. I just did an order for my classroom of over $60 worth of stuff, all free, and only paid the shipping.

    I also agree about going in and create something and leaving it in your basket. I did that by mistake recently and got email very quickly with some nice offers to come back and finish what I started! :)

    FYI - you can fwd an email and a person can use it for their account and get the deals... I do that all the time.

    I forwarded one to my school email as a test and my Vista Print account information remained.

    They once had a link at the bottom of each promotion that allowed you to easily pass it along, but that has been removed.

    Where is your info still there? In the email? As soon as a different person clicks it and orders they have to sign themselves in.

    oh! I did start something and leave it in my "basket" - and yes, I did get a reminder! Now, I gotta look for that email (un, I deleted thinking that's all it was...just a reminder) to see what the offer is. :haha:
    Thanks so much, EVERYONE! You all are truly a big help! :hugs:

    Yes, a person would have to sign in, but the account number is still there very plainly. Not that I dont' trust Sandra, of course! Not a big deal, but it would be nice to be able to easily share with anyone and everyone and not worry about a thing. :)

    I used to get the emails every other day.....now nothing.... even if I create something and leave it in my cart....

    I do get the "oops" email but there is never any deals attached to it... I NEED to order stuff for school! Can anyone help get the emails again?

    I know this has been discussed in various other threads but I'm just looking for some new ideas. What do you all order from Vista Print? I always feel like I'm missing out on great deals and opportunity for great classroom things by not ordering but whenever I go there to create something, I draw a blank!

    I had created my teacher brochure there... then when i was about to checkout, i saw the price: $80 with shipping.. i decided to try to create my own through Microsoft Publisher. I turned to google to search for a cute template, and low and behold, the first link is from Vistaprint that says "25 free brochures" i clicked the link, which took me directly to the website, and since my brochure was still under my account, all i had to do was login.. go to check out.. and the $80 was at $0.. all i paid was $11 for shipping, which was supposed to be 14 days, and i received them in about 6. Try googling!!!!!!!!!!!!

    also, there are lots of links on this site for vistaprint ~ usually free business cards with free address labels, or free 100 standard postcards.

    I just ordered some business cards for my website and there were two coupons in the boxes they came in. They are both for 25% off (it says everything on our site). It says www.vistaprint.com/save5

    I used mine to make "Oops" cards--my students get two per grading period to use for an extra day on an assignment. I made two on each, so I could just cut them in half.

    I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but if you create something & save it the offers will come. Even if you're not sure what you want to do you can play around with a business card. I get about an offer a day from Vista. :)

    It's weird, I have had an account there for a long time (used to buy business cards for my parents business) and have never gotten an email from them even though I'm supposed to!

    If you teach the younger grades... I saw an idea on a blog.. They made stickers that said "I have something important to tell you!" That were given to kiddos that had important notes or papers in their folders so that their parents would be sure to find it... Just a thought!

    That is exactly what I was thinking. I started making one but they only have one sheet of 24. I would want 100 or so for the whole year.

    Yeah... Me too. I also created a postcard because the site listed that you get 100 free.... But when I go to order them it is showing up as $20.. Anyone know how I can get the free postcards that they are advertising?
