If anyone is still on the hunt for a good Father’s Day gift, consider the creation of a personalised photo mug for your dad/hubby/partner/gramps. I was comparing prices from a few places and I found that both Walmart and Blacks have the best pricing for a basic personalised 11oz photo mug. You can get one for less than $10 at both of these stores, and both also offer free collection from your nearest location!

- Click here to order a mug @ Walmart Photocentre
Free Collection or Pay Shipping?
If you order online via Walmart and want to have your mug shipped, shipping would cost an extra $9.97 so that’s not really worth it. :)
You can get free shipping to your local Blacks store or also to select Telus locations, if you order online @ Blacks.ca. If you don’t live near a Blacks store or Telus location and cannot take advantage of the free collection service, then you might want to pay extra for shipping. Again shipping will cost an extra $9.99 too, so it doesn’t make sense for this option. Free collect at store is the way to go, with this deal!
Let’s have a little price comparison and see what we can see elsewhere, in terms of the cost for similar items.
- Over on Snapfish.ca, basic photo mugs start at $13.99 and shipping from Snapfish is an extra $4.99 on that.
- At Vistaprint.ca, personalised mugs start at $14 but there’s a coupon code (FIRSTORDER) for 20% off your first order, then shipping is extra on top of that too (E.g. $7.99 to ON).
- You could buy from London Drugs Photolab, where the cost would be $17.99 with free collect-at-store in this case.
- Over at Photobox.ca, personalised mugs start at $9.99 too, but shipping is an extra $3.95 on those.
- From Shoppers Photo, personalised photo mugs start at $14.99.
As you can see, the $9.99 with free collection from either Blacks or Walmart is a great price for this item. And could make an idea Father’s Day pressie.
(Blacks coupon expires 10th June 2015, Walmart deal is ongoing AFAIK)
