The holidays are a perfect time to let loved ones know just how much you care about them and wish them well, and greeting cards are often a perfect way of expressing the emotions we feel. However, this Thanksgiving, if you're hoping to save a little money on the cards you find on store shelves, there is another option for you—and it comes in the form of a free eCard.

When looking for free eCards this holiday season, be sure to check out these seven sites:

123 Greetings:

Choose from hundreds of options, including general Thanksgiving wishes, family specific greetings, sweet thoughts for friends, and even romantic wishes to a significant other (perfect if they're joining you for dinner and you want them to remember they love you before they see you practically inhale an entire turkey).

American Greetings:

If all you plan to do is send eCards for Thanksgiving, you're in luck and can send some free ones through the major card maker. Sign up for a free 7-day membership on their site to send dozens of options, including cards featuring songs like "Let's Get Physical."

Cross Cards:

Find both religious and non-religious options at this website, which will allow you to send cards by simply choosing a design, inputting your name and email address, adding recipients, writing up a nice message, and then hitting "Send." Options include simple greetings of "Happy Thanksgiving," as well as ones with Psalms, Proverbs and blessings.

Doozy Cards:

Simply choose a card and create a message—then hit send. Options include cute cards featuring "Thanksgiving Pooches" (perfect for the dog lover in your life), as well as a parody on "The Sound of Music" featuring, what else, turkeys!

Got Free Cards:

If physical cards are more your thing, look no further than this site, which will allow you to pick designs that you can then download and print—still for free!


All you need to do to be able to send beautiful customized greetings from this site is to sign up for a free account. Once you've done that, you're free to send as many greetings as you like, and can even choose options featuring your own photos.


You've seen these posted on social media, and you can send them to everyone you wish for Thanksgiving without having to spend a dime. These sarcastic expressions will truly be worth the grin they'll put on people's faces, including messages which say, "I'm getting a head start on celebrating Thanksgiving by preemptively fighting with my family," and " This year I'm thankful for any family member who doesn't ask why I'm still single."
