The Giveaway Spree Continues: Zoom Album Review and Giveaway!

This is a really cool product from Zoom Album, and I was lucky enough to be sent my very own sample to try out and review for you guys. These little photo books are not only adorable and handy to carry around to hold your favorite pics, but the company also offers a great opportunity for moms (or anyone for that matter) to make some money introducing others to Zoom Album as a Photo Coach.

Here is what the web site has to say about their product:
ZoomAlbums are small, portable photo albums with a professional look that customers can make at home. In just a few minutes, any user can create a handmade gift or keepsake using the familiar technologies found in most households today: a PC, digital camera, camera phone or scanner, and a color Inkjet printer.
Now, my printer died and we haven't replaced it yet, so Zoom Album agreed to make me my book for me so I could see what the finished product looks like. All I had to do was upload 12 cute pictures of my kids to Picasa and the folks over at Zoom Album sent me my own little keepsake book. I loved it, and my kids especially loved it because they had a little kid-sized book filled with pictures of them. Yes, my kids love looking at themselves, I don't know where they get it from.

Each kit includes enough materials for three Zoom Albums. You can choose from a photo cover or a solid color cover for your 3"X 3" hardbound books. The glossy self adhesive photo sheets included allow you to print all 12 photos out on one sheet and the kit comes with really easy directions to show you how to assemble your books. All you need are your digital pictures and the kit and you can create your own little pocket sized masterpieces.

I love this idea, and I am a VERY un-crafty person, so you know it's good if I want to try it. I am so bad about printing my photos, but with this innovative idea, I will definitely do it. It's a great idea for gifts for the grandparents, aunts and uncles, or even as stocking stuffers! I am always looking for inexpensive, unique gifts so this product is perfect. Plus, I have the opportunity to make some money while doing it!

Zoom Album's Photo Coach program is a neat way to use your interest in the product to generate a little extra income from the comfort of your own home. Here is how it works:

Simply show your finished ZoomAlbum photobook to someone - a family member, friend, colleague, or even the lady behind you at the grocery store. Explain what’s in a ZoomAlbum Kit and how to make a photobook. Then show them how to order online using your Coach ID. They will get a 15% discount, and when their order is processed, you will receive 30% in sales commission within 30 days. It’s really that easy!
Just go to the Zoom Album web site, and click on "Become a Photo Book Coach" to purchase your Coach Kit and get started. It's fun and easy, so why not?

So now for the fun part. I am going to give one lucky reader a free Zoom Album kit of their very own for free!! Just leave me a comment telling me what kind of pictures you will fill your photo books with, or ideas you have for how to use them. Next week I will draw a random winner and they will receive their kit to try for themselves! Can't get any better than that!

So leave me a comment, get creative with your answers (for my amusement only; it won't help you win or anything) and cross your fingers that you are the big winner.

Oh yeah, and tweet or mention this giveaway on your blog for extra chances to win!!

Also, if you would like to go ahead and order one of these babies for yourself right away, go to their site and enter discount code WISE0903 at checkout and you will receive a 10% discount on top of the 20% discount already being offered at their site on all the photo book kits!!!

Tomorrow we have our last giveaway of the week, for, so come back and check it out (but make sure there are no kids in the room when you do, OK? Yeah thanks.) Man, am I generous or what?
