Minted.com: *HOT* 25 Personalized Holiday Postcards Only $2 Shipped (Regularly $43!) Expired

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Wowzers! This Minted.com holiday card deal that I posted previously is even sweeter than I thought! You can actually score a total of 25 personalized high quality holiday postcards for ONLY $2 shipped, which makes each one just $0.08! This is a steal considering a set of 25 normally retails for $43 (+ shipping!).

To score this incredible deal, follow these directions exactly:

* First, head on over here to sign up for a new Minted account and you will score $25 off your first order of $50 or more (applied automatically at the final stage of checkout) AFTER you enter your credit card info.

* Now click on the “Holiday” tab at the top left and choose Holiday Postcards. Select the Postcard design you like, then choose 25 for $43 and select “Personalize”. After you are finished designing and adding photos etc., add to your cart.


* Go back to the “Holiday” tab and select photo cards. Hover over any card and you should see a green button pop-up that states “quick look”. Click on it, then scroll down and you should see “Order Sample +$9″. Click on it, then add to cart.

* You are now ready to start the checkout process. Just click the cart button at the top to start checking out. You will need to enter your billing and shipping info, then at the bottom you should see a spot to enter a promotion code. Enter code HOL25SHIP to score $25 off your holiday card order, plus FREE shipping (note that this code expires at 11:59 PM PST on 11/12/2012)! And this code can be stacked with the $25 you snag for signing up, making for a total of $50 off your order!

* So your total comes to $43 for 25 personalized postcards and $9 for the order sample, bringing the cost to $52. And then you deduct the $50 discount you’ll score from the new member sign-up credit AND the promo code, which makes for a final cost of $2 + FREE shipping! How sweet is that?! :D

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need to apply the $25 holiday cards promo code HOL25SHIP when you view the cart. You will then need to enter your credit card info (before you will see the additional $25 discount) AND then on the final checkout page you will see both discounts.

(Thanks for the direction, Jackie and for the heads up on the coupon code, Queen Bee Coupons!)

    Now says off $100 order.

  • Crystal says:

    I was just trying to do this … couldn’t get it to take my $25 sign up credit although it did show up in my account. Chatted with customer service online and was told that it will not work if the amount falls below $50 after the first code (total was $52, took off 25 with the HOL25SHIP code so now order was only $27). I know that others have had this go through so I am not sure if they caught on and changed the rules? Has this happened to anyone else? So annoyed – I saw this first thing this morning but couldn’t make a decision on the card and waited. Now it looks like it isn’t going to quite as good of deal :(

  • Heather says:

    I am currently on live chat with them and they say they just changed it because they are having “customer abuse”. So much for cute thank you post cards that I made. I told them to cancel my order because there is no way that I can pay $27 for those things!

    • Heather says:

      Also, I just tried to live chat and cancel my cards because they changed to the new thing AS I WAS MAKING them I guess. Here is a portion of my live chat.

      The criteria literally just changed 10 minutes ago we are updating it now we have experienced some customer abuse
      Ok, well if that is the case, I would like to cancel my order. I can not afford to pay $27 for some postcards this season.
      There will be a $15 precessing fee for the cancellation
      How can that be? I placed the order based on the criteria that it told me and it changed to something new while I was doing my order. I did not know that and I don’t find it appropriate to charge me a cancellation fee. I would not have done my order if I had known it wasn’t going to come out as how it had told me it would in my friend referral

      and on the site it says if you cancel prior to proofs etc, then you will not be charged.

      If you decide to cancel your order before our designers have created your proof, we are happy to refund your purchase
      I will go ahead and waive the fee

      Needless to say, I don’t think I want to take a chance with their site for anything again!

  • Christiena says:

    It says $25 off $100. So sad! :(

  • Shelly says:

    It also says $25 off $100 for me too. :(

  • Crystal says:

    This is really a bummer – I don’t consider it “customer abuse” to stack two codes. I loved the postcards I made but there is no way I will pay that much for cards (let alone postcards!). That’s ok – there are plenty of other companies out there that are offering great deals so I will just look elsewhere.

  • steph says:

    This was the message I received…
    Unfortunately we have experienced significant abuse of our refer-a-friend program this weekend, which has necessitated a temporary increase in the order threshold for refer-a-friend credits to $100. It is likely we will return the minimum to $50 on Tuesday, after the expiration of our current promotion. We welcome you to continue using your credit(s) now on orders over $100, or to wait and use your credits at a later date. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. I apologize for the inconvenience.

  • Brittany F. says:

    Had the same problem, here is what they told me.
    Add products valued at $100 or more to your cart after promos
    Credits will automatically be applied to your next purchase and cannot be saved for later
    Referral credits may be used in combination with one additional promotional code

    we just updated the policy today
    I am sorry for the inconvenience due to some blog site abuse

  • Rachel says:

    Thank goodness I placed my order before noon when they changed the fine print! Stinks, too, because I found some really great square cards that were only $55 for my sis-in-law to order…. would’ve only been $5 with free shipping! UGH!

  • Mandy says:

    I would love it if someone could use my link, too. Thanks so much!

  • Amber says:

    This isn’t working anymore. I just got done speaking with a chat representative and he said they have temporarily increased the refer-a-friend credits to $100 until Tuesday. :-( So now the total is $27 for everything only using the promo code and no discount.

  • Patti says:

    does anyone know if they’re still honoring the orders that were placed already?

  • Anonymous says:

    Seriously, customer abuse?? They put out the codes, people “play their game” and use the codes and then they term it “customer abuse” Wow! I’m glad I didn’t get around to trying this until now.

  • Cat says:

    I actually got mine to go through earlier, but now after reading the comments, I’m worried they won’t honor the orders. Customer abuse? They created the codes and the expiration dates. How is it customer abuse when people are just smart enough to combine the active codes? The stuff on this site is WAY over priced and I honestly would never have even made an order with them. You can find cards on other sites way less expensive for the same bulk. I hope they do the right thing though and honor the orders, it’s the right thing to do.

  • Ruby says:

    It’s “customer abuse” to use *their* codes and order *their* products?? That’s hilarious!! And to try to charge a $15 cancellation fee?? I guess they don’t have too much respect for their customers. I love cardstore.com!

  • Amy says:

    Very upset by this. I spent over an hour making my cards to come and find out that the deal is no longer valid!!

  • Seriously people? says:

    Hate to play the devils advocate here but COME ON you guys & gals.

    #1 Minted DOES NOT owe you anything. It says right on their website they can cancel or change an offer at anytime.

    #2 I learned my lesson the hard way, when you see these deals, jump on them asap. Don’t delay because this can happen (and does often).

    #3 Have you not thought of the people who got to this deal before you? Thousands of people have redeemed this offer meaning Minted has to basically print the postcards for free…that’s a lot of cash out of their pocket.

    #4 Now I can’t speak for Minted but it’s easy to assume they aren’t couponers and are unfamiliar with how we work. We combine discounts to get the best deal and when something is posted on a couponing blog or website there are literally thousands of people that jump on it all at the same time. Companies expect a couple people to combine offers but thousands? Pretty sure they aren’t expecting that and felt a little blindsided when it happened.

    Sorry ladies and gentlemen but in all honesty you sound so unappreciative. You are making me embarrassed to be associated with couponing in general. Now lets all move on and seek out the next holiday card deal ’cause you all know there is one waiting for us just around the bend!!

    • CopperKitten86 says:

      Well said!

      While I agree that Minted’s wording was a little harsh, but I understand they probably saw it as abuse due to the sheer numbers of people ordering. That being said, they should have seen this as potentially happening. Also, their PR also should have been aware of the potential of blog websites jumping on this deal. Considering the sheer numbers of people couponing, the rediculous TV shows about it out there, and the amount of great blogs like Collin’s…for most companies it’s a “no brainer.”

      Also, couponing and “steals” are a staple of consumerist culture now. Our economy coupled with the “thrill of the hunt” mentality most shoppers take on, including myself, creates massive sales for companies. Retailers (most anyway) look at it like this: several thousand sales far outways a few hundred at retail cost. Also, the cost to print cards, considering the number of sites offering free deals this year, has to be extremely inexpensive. Unfortunately, I think Minted may in fact have lost potential paying customers due to their wording. They could have written up something like this: “Due to the sheer numbers of customers cashing in on this deal, we regrettably have to change the stipulations of our deal to meet demand.” This makes more sense, because not only are you catering to the customer, you are saving your business potential money lost.

      When a business “gives a little” they naturally get more traffic, and more PR via word of mouth, this blog being a case in point. Loyal customers become the backbone of money earned in retail and the sales hopefully gain your more customers.

      In any case, more greeting card deals will come, and I am sure there will be more free offers or “just pay shipping!” offers soon too. :-) Be prepared for them and do not hesitate!

      Also, who has taken advantage of 6pm’s $15 Veteran’s Day Sale?!?! Hurray for work shoes here! :)

    • LIZ says:

      Exactly my thoughts! I loved the deal I hope I actually get, but I knew when I got it that it was not how they meant for it to go. So like you said often times they will take a deal down. If you want it act fast and if you snooze you loose in this game!

    • Anonymous says:

      I do agree that they can cancel a deal as they see fit and I’m not at all bummed that I didn’t get to do the deal. I do have a problem with their reason being given as “customer abuse”. It sounds like the customer has done something wrong and I don’t think that using their codes that they put out is wrong. I do think it is wrong to suddenly change the terms on someone and then charge them when they change their mind. Not very nice customer service. Remember the ecomom deal last year? Now they have great customer service!

    it would be awesome if 4 people could use my code :) FAST!! thank you
