Since numerous questions on this topic have been posted to my Facebook fan page, I thought I’d repost my response here. (If you’re not a Facebook Fan – please “Like” the page! We have lots of discussions and fun over there, so join in!)
By the way a new Picaboo promo has been announced today:
For 3 days only, get a FREE large 8.5″ x 11″ copy of your book when you buy an extra large 11″ x 14″ Classic Custom book!
Coupon Code: BIGMAR
Deal Expires: 3/24/11
(Remember, even though this deal is three days only, it doesn’t mean you have to rush to make a new book – you can’t reorder that book you’ve already made – give a copy to Mom or Grandma!)
Don’t forget this is the last day 3/22 to make your FREE Picaboo photo book (for new users). Use the autofill tool for a quick and free book!
Q: Can I Buy More than One Picaboo Groupon?
A: (b/t/w although you can buy the Picaboo Groupon in any city, I recommend U.S. residents stick to U.S. city Groupons and Canadians, Canadian Groupons).
The details say you can only buy one. But to clarify, there were three different versions of the Picaboo Groupon: $25 for $100; $25 for $75 and $35 for $100.
Since they were considered three different deals, the Groupon moderator stated that you weren’t restricted to buy only one of them, but one of each is okay. As of late, the only one available now is the $35 for $100 one, so if you’re asking if you can buy more than one of the $35 for $100 Groupon, as it pops up across different cities, Groupon has asked on the honor system, that you only buy one.
One woman asked on the discussion board, if it was a limit of one per household. She asked if her husband could buy his own Picaboo Groupon. The moderator said if her husband had his own Groupon/Picaboo account, that yes he could.
Folks have been asking this question frequently, so I decided to post it as a note so that it’s here and accessible in future. Although I do my best to make sure information is updated and correct, I cannot guarantee another company’s policies, and those may change over time (as they always reserve the right to to do so) so please read the fine print and ask Groupon and Picaboo directly to confirm – I am only relaying what was stated by the moderators on the Picaboo Groupon discussion wall.
As for me, I have bought the original $25 for $100 deal (the first one that I believe appeared) and the $35 for $100 deal. So just one of each.
Remember that we’re only talking about Picaboo Groupons here – different companies have different terms and limitations. As you probably know Photobook America/Canada has no limit – buy as many as you like, but use only 1 per order. I have 4 myself
Typically, regardless of company you cannot combine Groupons with other offers/promo codes and you can only order either 1 book per order or multiple copies of the same book in a single order (not two different books for example). There are differences across companies whether all of the Groupon’s value must be used at once, or whether the remainder can be saved and used later. Please check on all these details before buying and when in doubt, email or chat with the company directly – I think you’ll get a more definitive answer than trying to post a question on the Groupon discussion board.
Hope that helps!
