I am not a fan of group buying deals (though I subscribe to at least 6 of their sites, haha!), but I love discount promos and I want to know what companies are offering to advertise their products. I have purchased quite a few in the past years — gadgets, fine-dining GCs, overnight out-of-town trips and other novelty products I just found too cute to pass up. So far the best deal I have ever purchased was the one offered by Ensogo for a 40-page photobook valued at P6000 which I got for only P1299!
The voucher was for a 40-page, 15″ x 11″ Large Landscape Imagewrap Photobook. I grabbed it immediately because I was excited to publish the family portrait photos that our good friend Arlene Briones took of us last March (visit her site to see samples of our photoshoot at ARLENE BRIONES). Seeing the quality of printed pictures showcased in Photobook Philippines’ gallery, I was confident that our photos would look gorgeous.
Using the dowloadable Photobook software to layout the images was a breeze! I managed to finish the design for all 40 pages in half a night and sent the file online through their website in just a matter of minutes. All I needed to do was to wait for the finished product. And when it did, I was beyond impressed with both the finished product and the service that Photobook offered!
Here are a few reasons why I believe this was one of the best deals I’ve ever purchased:
• The voucher promised a delivery timetable of 7-11 days after receipt of payment, and I got mine after only 5 days!
• The bookwas well protected as it was covered in shrink wrap and was placed in a thick box with foam padding on all sides to ensure that the book was safe and damage-free.
• The photo printing was amazing! The materials used were indeed of very high-quality, the paper used was acid-free and really thick and sturdy (I upgraded the paper from 170gsm to 216gsm and I chose Premium Silk so that the photos would really pop!), and the assembly and binding was neatly done.
• I thought that with the promo price I’d only be getting a softcover, so seeing that the finished product had a hardcover was like a bonus for me!
Over-all we were happy to have our very own M Book. I wouldn’t mind purchasing a few more vouchers if another deal comes up from the same company (Photobook Philippines was awarded best photobook of the year) as I have a few more photo albums that I believe are “book-worthy”. If you wish to look at other photobooks that they’ve created, visit their website at PHOTOBOOK PHILIPPINES.
I am sure there are other HOT DEALS out there that are as good or maybe even better than this. If you’ve recently purchased a voucher from any of the group buying sites that are out there that you believe was a really great deal, share it with me! I’d love to hear from you 🙂
