Default Photobox 70% off an A4 Classic Photobook with 100 pages - AGAIN!

This time it's for Mother's Day. Pony up before the 18th, have up to 3 months to sort the book, cost 24.14 plus 3.99 postage & packaging. (Anyone know any combinable codes to clobber that last bit?!)


Here's the spiel:
70% off discount!
Gather your best memories in a fabulous 100-page A4 Classic Photobook worth 80.49 for only 24.14 with this offer. Buy your credit now and create and order your Photobook when you’re ready.

How does it work? Buy now & order later
Buy your Photo Book credit before 11:59pm Friday 18th March.
Your credit will be automatically added to your account and will be valid for 3 months.
Create your A4 Classic Photobook with 100 pages to get 70% off the total price.
The credit will be automatically deducted from your basket when you order – you just pay 3.99 postage & packaging.


CAVEAT! "Offer is exclusively available to PhotoBox newsletter recipients" so for once it pays to be already signed up... Sorry folks!

Cobblers. You're absolutely right - the small print reads
"Offer is exclusively available to PhotoBox newsletter recipients"


Which gives the Albelli offer much more scope - see http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/....php?t=3107418
(albelli website have given out a code to get a free photobook worth 15.95 all you have to do is pay postage of 3.99)

If you want the bigger book, you could always sign up for newsletters & see if you get sent the offer? Or sign up & ping them an email, asking?

Sorry, all! Didn't read the small print.

fingers crossed they are still sending these out. Last email i got from them was for 2 for 1 on photobooks,20% off wall decor and 20% off photo gifts and that was a Mother's day email offer.

Looking for a decent photobook with a good amount of pages and this sounds ideal.

Hi All, I recieved this e-mail in my inbox too. Looks fab. From previous posts re.this from 'Cheship' I think the link to the webpage was put up and then people were able to get the offer from that. Sorry, I'm not making much sense - I'll PM Cheship - and ask how to put the link in so it's not a personal one. I initially used the link that was sent to Cheship's e-mail and I've used several links that have been posted by Cheship since.
Photobox are amazing photobooks and this is an absolutely fantastic offer - just very gutted that it's not the canvas offer included.

Although it says "Only available to Newsletter recipients" in the T&Cs I suspect that's just how you recieve the link. But in case you want to sign up to the newsletter to be sure here is a link to that page where you fill in your details. Phototbox Newsletter.

So if you sign up for the newsletter before adding the offer to your basket, you have met the T&Cs. IMHO.

DON'T DO IT!!!! Possibly the worst ever online experience you will ever have.

If you want to waste a few days of your life and get pretty mediocre results then this is perfect for you...

Also, make sure ALL your images have an sRGB Colour Profile and that you have autocorrect turned off in your options.

This is the only way you MIGHT get consistent results with these jokers.
