As teased last Friday, the Office Depot Duracell Rewards promotion is back, running for the week of Sunday 10/23/16 until the end of day on Saturday 10/29/16. The terms are the same as before, you can buy up to two 16-packs of Duracell AA or AAA single-use batteries, and get their purchase price (minus $0.01) back as Office Depot rewards. Sales tax is not refunded. You can find these through the Office Depot and Max Rewards and if you page-down to the bottom there, you can see the terms for this particular offer. The rewards will be sent separately from their monthly rewards, which is a good thing. The offer is good for in-store purchases or online purchases and orders by phone too. The limit is a two maximum per customer for the week, regardless of order method.
Monoprice is back with another coupon, this one is good for Sunday only, coupon WITCH gets you 15% off almost everything at the Monoprice website. The usual exclusions apply… Speaking of Monoprice, they too are jumping on the stainless steel cup BPA-Free bandwagon with these two single-figures 20oz and 30oz tumblers. These are not lens-shaped 🙂 These of interest if you have long sessions inside or outside and you don’t or can’t get new supplies of iced cold or hot hot beverages.

Among the latest Trending eBay Deals, the official Buydig eBay store is offering the new condition Canon PIXMA MX922 printer for $83 with free shipping. Limit 50 per customer, but don’t try to fit all fifty under the tree 😉 Buydig is Beach Camera and they are authorized Canon dealers. Over 2800 of these got sold from that particular listing per the data posted over there.
If you qualify for Adobe’s Student and Teacher discounts (they have guidelines and restrictions, sadly the basket weaving class that I’m teaching in my head does not qualify for this discount 😉 ), the Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements 15 bundle is on sale for $80 as a software box by mail or digital download (Mac or PC).
If you are planning a $200+ purchase at NewEgg, and if you pay with MasterPass (Mastercard’s version of an online payment service), and use coupon code MPGAMER16, you get $25 off an order of $200+. The offer ends by 10/31/16. Even though this is run by Mastercard, you can pay with any major credit card, not just Mastercards. More details at the promotional page.
If you are a fan of single-use batteries, the Duracell brand, and the Office Depot / Office Max Rewards program, we have good news for you! The 1c Duracell Rewards promotion returns for the week of October 23-29 in 2016 at their stores. The offer may also be available online but we’ll know that for certain on Sunday when their Rewards page is updated.
For brand new Groupon customers ONLY, coupon code THORN50 gets you 50% off Local Deals at Groupon Local.

This weekend’s magazine sale at Discount Mags has a slightly different set of featured magazines with a fall theme of sorts. None of the usual printed photo magazines are participating, but they offer a 1-year digital subscription (Zinio) of Shutterbug for $9 for new subscribers or renewals. Their weekend sales now feature a mix of print or digital or “print + digital”, so be sure to check the box of each magazine there. The sales are good until Monday night.
Adorama has another sale on refurbished camera gear with over 100 items participating. Nikon has about half of them, and Epson about a quarter of them. I will “digest” them later in the day, but I’m posting this alert so you don’t have to wait for me if you feel like deal-fishing.
PS: as of 3:48pm ET, a number of big websites and services (eg Twitter) are currently down because of major DDoS attacks. Of shopping interest, Stacksocial is down.

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.
The Sony RX100 III currently goes for $750 at authorized Sony dealers, but as one of the daily deals at the Best Buy website you can get it bundled with a $50 Best Buy gift card…

If you are a T-Mobile customer, you are eligible for the Tuesday T-Mobile Freebies and for this Tuesday (10/18/19) you can get ten 4×6 photo prints through the Printicular/Walgreens combination. Prints can only picked up at a Walgreens store. Check their website for more details.
O’Reilly is not the only online e-book store that offers DRM-free books. eBooks.com is also DRM-Free, and for October 2016, coupon code categorysalecp (that’s the coupon name) gets you 20% off on Art eBooks (along with Business, Law, Literary Criticism, and Performing Arts categories). Some photography ebooks are under Art, but I have no way of knowing exactly what percentage. This depends on how the ebooks are coded in their system. For example, a Canon 7D camera guide won’t be under Art, but something approaching photography from an art angle will likely be so. Their ebooks are available as EPUBs or PDFs, and can also be read online using a web browser
