Latest news and updates from June

deals and offers

This post isn’t PlanetJune-related but I do love a bargain and I’ve found some crafty deals you might like too, so I wanted to share them! If you’re waiting for a crochet post, I’ll have a brand new pattern collection to reveal, next week…

MOO card winners and discount codes

Thanks to everyone who entered my MOO giveaway! I wish you could all win – it was great to hear about your small businesses, crafty ventures and good ideas that could benefit from some MOO cards.

But there can only be 3 winners, and tells me they are Kati, Diana Mullins-Atkinson, and Katie. Congratulations to you all!

I’ll email you to notify you of this too, but I’ll be passing your names and email addresses along to Dan at MOO and he’ll contact you to arrange your prize – your choice of 50 Classic Business Cards or 100 MiniCards 🙂

Now, if you didn’t win, but thinking about what you’d do with your MOO cards has got you all excited, I have another offer for you! With my order, I received 5 discount codes each worth 15% off your first order at MOO, and I’d like to share them with people who can make use of them. Here’s what I have:

  • 3x 15% off your entire order
  • 1x 15% off any 1 product (the cheapest, if you order more than one item)
  • 1x 15% off 1 pack of MiniCards

As I don’t know how many people may want them, and people read my blog at different times of day, I think the fairest thing would be to give you a 24-hour window to let me know if you want a code.

  • If you haven’t ordered from MOO before and would like to now, please leave a comment below to let me know. (If you could also say if you’d be happy with any of the codes or you need one in particular, I’ll try to match the winners with their requests so the codes will do the most good!)
  • If there are more than 5 requests, 24 hours from now, I’ll randomly draw 5 to get the codes.
  • If there are less than 5 requests in 24 hours, I’ll keep this offer going until I’ve received 5 requests and given out all the codes!

UPDATE 27 Jan: All the codes have now been claimed! I’m glad they’ve found good homes. Chrisie, Aimee, Amanda W, milla1222, Karina – I’ll email your codes to you tomorrow. Hope you enjoy your discounted MOO orders 🙂

Try Zinio for free

Zinio - Be Well Read
I must confess I’m quite addicted to Zinio now – it’s made buying magazines so easy that I’ve bought digital subscriptions to crochet magazines, and also to some knitting titles (for clothing inspiration and techniques), and Ideas magazine (for some local South African crafty flavour). It also makes it really easy to pick up a one-off back issue of a magazine that has a pattern or article you want, which is very handy!

Anyway, I found an amazing offer to try $50 of Zinio managzines for free – you have to activate it by January 31st, so hurry and get on it if you’d like to take advantage of this deal too! There’s a wide selection of magazines to choose from and, although there aren’t any crochet mags included, there are two knitting titles and a nice selection of other crafty magazines, as well as food, home, lifestyle, computers, photography, music, sports, etc etc.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Click here and then click ‘Claim Coupon’ to get started.
  2. Once you get your code, copy and paste it somewhere safe (so you can log back in again later and choose more magazines).
  3. Login here to redeem your voucher.
  4. Don’t worry if nothing happens when you’ve selected your magazines – you’ll be emailed the links in a couple of days. I’ve tried it and it does work; it just takes a while!

Now, here’s how I made the deal even better for myself. You don’t have to order all 18 magazines at once, and you have 90 days to redeem them. So:

  1. Keep a note of your voucher code – you’ll need it to log back in later.
  2. Select single issues, not subscription, to get the latest issue and be able to choose 18 different magazines.
  3. Some magazines only have a 1-issue subscription available, but if you log back into the redemption page in a month (or whenever the next issue comes out), you’ll be able to get the next issue of the same magazine free too! A handy tip: you’ll receive whichever issue has its cover pictured on the page at the time you redeem your voucher.

I hope you enjoy these deals. Don’t forget to leave a comment requesting a MOO code, if you’d like one!

    Thanks again for the MOO discount! I just ordered business cards, stickers and return address labels, and I saved $15 with your generous code. 🙂

    • June said

      Yay for saving money! Don’t forget to show us a pic on ravelry when your cards arrive…

      • Chrisie said

        Will do! Should be about a month to arrive though. 🙂

    Just popping in to thank you for pointing me in the direction of Moo!!! I just completed my first order for business cards – actually in my case personal cards for the blog but business size.

    The ordering process is beautifully designed and the only problems were self inflicted!!! February 14th they are to arrive! Can not wait!

    Thank you again! They will be perfect for my needs.

  3. Chrisie said

    Thanks for the discount! Now I have to make some good graphics for my shop. 🙂

  4. Karina said

    Thank you so much for the discount June! My dad is really pleased too ;D

  5. Amanda W. said

    Thank you for both offers! I received the discount code. 🙂 So excited!

  6. Karina said

    Generous June, pointing us towards all these awesome things and then helping us obtain them 😉
    Since you put the MOO post up I’ve been playing with designs for my Dad, who has his own business and really likes the idea of getting a tonne of different card designs for the same price as the two designs he normally gets, so one of the 15% off the entire order or cheapest product would be brilliant.
    Now I just have to decide if he’d like the Lucky Bamboo or the Cacti or the Succulents for his new shop…. or maybe a dinosaur or two ;D

    I would love to win a MOO code! The 15% off on one product would be perfect, since I am planning to make postcards from some of my daughter’s photos.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Amanda W. said

    That’s awesome that you are giving away your discounts as well. Thank you! I would love the 15% off whole order but anything would be awesome! 🙂

  9. Sara said

    Do you have to have an e-reader to get the magazines, or can you get them on the computer, too?

    • June said

      Good point, Sara – I mentioned that in my original review, but not again today. There are Zinio apps for Mac and PC as well as Android and iDevices, so you can read on your computer – no tablet required 🙂

  10. Aimee said

    I would love a moo code! Any one of those would be awesome but I’d love the mini cards!

  11. Chrisie said

    I would Love a Moo code! I would prefer 15% off entire order as I plan to get cards and stickers, but any code would be awesome! Thanks for introducing me to a great site. 🙂

  12. Emily said

    OMG – Thank you so much for the Zinio offer! So exciting! Free knitty/crochet mags! Yay!
