Free Print Shipping on PhotoWorks through April 9

OK...true confession...I have very uncharitable opinions about in-store photo kiosks. For some reason I just don't get along with them - and have never been able to download photos from my new camera's high-memory photo card onto any store machine (Wal-Mart, Target, etc.). Add to the technical difficulty frustration the fact that it is almost impossible to execute and 'upload photo/order prints' session in store - which requires me to stand at the kiosk for up to half an hour - while shopping with a two-year-old...well...let's just say that I avoid the experience whenever possible.

Which is why I get excited when a photo company online offers free print shipping. I don't even care, to tell you the truth, if they charge $0.15/4x6 print as opposed to an in-store kiosk's $0.14/4x6 print, if you get my drift.

Is me ordering 20 prints online, shipped free, instead of getting frustrated and burned out trying to navigate an in-store kiosk - paying $0.20 more, in essence, a 'splurge' that's worthwhile? Ohhhhh, yea. With PhotoWorks, you save at least $1.79 on shipping (see 'normal' shipping rates below). is shipping prints free through April 9. Enter the code SPRINGPRINT at checkout to receive the free shipping. Minimum order is $1.00 (at least seven 4x6 prints, for reference). The code AGIEMPPHOTO09 is rumored to get a 40% discount sitewide, though we haven't confirmed this, and don't know if it is stackable with SPRINGPRINT. Let us know in a comment if you try stacking the codes - and whether it worked!
