I showed it to my husband and he went off on a tangent about how google keeps your emails even if you delete them from your account and he doesn't know if shutterfly is the same way.
I know I can contact their customer service, but I thought I would start here first
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Ditto what SK said....they always run specials/promos/coupons so don't pay full price. I know one of them was running 60% for Cyber Monday so I am sure you will be able to find a code.
As for security, I am not quite sure. I know you can use their site to store your photos but I don't know what happens if you close/delete your account. Guess I never really had much concern about the security of my vanilla-type pics. Maybe if I was taking racy stuff -
I use Google and I also use Shutterfly. In fact I just ordered three photo coffee mugs from them as Christmas presents.
I store all my pictures on a portable hard drive. I have a photobucket account for pics I want to post to a message board, but those are random pictures, not pictures of my children.
I'm just wondering if I download a couple of pics of my children to make Christmas cards and then delete them will Shutterfly still have them stored somewhere. I don't need the storage, I wast just thinking about making cards. I also noticed they have a case for a Galaxy S4. That might be cool, too. But I also have to convince the husband to give me the money. So it probably wouldn't happen anyway, but I thought I would ask.

I don't know if the pics remain in perpetuity or not; realistically, in this internet age I think everything's indelibly inked somewhere if the right eyes are looking. However, I've both taken some outstanding photos and have some pretty darn photogenic family members, and thus far they haven't turned up in the public photostream....(knocking on wood!)
