I used them without issue. There are some threads around Vista Print billing you for unexpected charges. Here is an example

I've used them twice so far and was very pleased with the products I got. Received them with no problems and a very timely matter.

I've used them more than a few times for business cards, postcards, and a few other items and never had a problem. I'd say over 10 orders total at least.

I did, and I didn't like what I experienced... ;) NEVER again...

And I WASN'T even trying to get any FREE stuff, either when it happened...

I've used vista print with no problems. They do try to up-sell you, which I find really obnoxious, but after a few "nos" they stopped. I'm happy with the products I got from them.

Use them all the time. Just received an order last week and I am going to place another tonight.

You do have to go through several screens selecting no thank you but the price and service is always very good.

My wife uses them all the time for free stuff. The try to slip in a bunch of add-ons during the checkout process, and inattentive folks might inadvertently accrue additional charges... but thus far she's gotten a whole lot of stuff essentially for free.
