Last month, Google expanded Google Photo Books to Canada for Google Photos users, a service which previously was limited to the USA.
Great news right? Not quite, because shipping fees to Canada are $14.99 CAD per book, which stings, especially when a starting 7-inch square softcover book is priced at $17.99 CAD.
But wait! Google Photos has launched a promotion for Canadians, offering free shipping to Canada, if your order is over $59 CAD, until December 15th. The details of this promo are showing up in the Assistant tab within Google Photos, as seen below:
The fine print reads:
Offer expires on 15 Dec 2017, 23:59:59 Pacific Standard Time. Offer is valid for free international priority delivery on qualifying orders of Google Photos photo books worth CA$59 or more (before taxes and delivery) dispatched to Canada only. Taxes apply. Offer is not eligible for upgraded delivery options and cannot be combined with other promotions. Offer is subject to change or cancellation without notification.
There are lots of other photo services out there to help make your photo books, but the value proposition of Google Photos is the service automatically creates albums for you based on people or events, to help you get started in about a minute, says the company. It utilizes AI to pick from your best images, removing duplicates and low quality images.
Prices are as follows:
- $17.99 CAD – 20-page 7-inch square softcover book; extra pages $0.79/each
- $27.99 CAD – 20-page 9-inch square hardcover book; extra pages $0.99/each
