Buy Christmas Cards in Bulk
The more greeting cards you buy, the cheaper per-card price you'll pay. Right now, Vistaprint is taking 60% off holiday greeting cards and wall calendars via a coupon code. While that cuts already affordable prices even lower, you can save more just by ordering extra cards.
A 10-pack of Christmas cards can cost you 43 cents per card, but order 20 of the same design and the price drops to 41 cents each. This might not seem like much, but those couple of cents add up quickly. You can also order higher amounts — ordering 75 cards drops the price to 34 cents apiece.
Prefer to get your greeting cards from a slightly more local source? Walgreens is also taking 60% off all cards and premium stationery for a limited time.
