You must be invited by PayPal to participate. Check your PayPal connected email accounts and/or the offers/messages section or the splash ads at the PayPal website or apps.

Uber and GrubHub are the easiest to make a payment quickly because you can use them at any time. The other three are subscriptions which means you have to make sure the payment happens within the transaction window and before the 30,000 rewards are used up…

FREE (with DRM): “The Camera Does the Rest: How Polaroid Changed Photography” ebook

We have an ebook freebie that is of direct camera-and-photo interest, and for a limited time, the University of Chicago (UoC) is offering it for FREE.

The UoC freebie ebook for this month is “The Camera Does the Rest: How Polaroid Changed Photography” by Peter Buse (320 pages). UoC offers one free ebook each month but every time it is with Adobe’s nasty DRM stuff.

IF you are curious about the ebook without committing to Adobe’s DRM, you can “Look Inside” at amazon.com (they only have a Kindle preview, no preview of the hardcover).

PS: typically Kindle previews are a number of pages (or a percentage of the ebook) starting from the front cover, while hardcover previews jump all over the book and you can get a better feel for it ~ depending on the book of course…

Nikon D5600 Options abound (NC Two Lens Kit for $600, Refurb Body for $400, Etc)

The Nikon D3500 two lens kit goes for $400 as part of the Cyber FriMonday festivities, but if you want a more advanced DSLR as a jumping point into the Nikon system, the new condition (NC) Nikon D5600 two lens kit (18-55, 70-300) is currently going for $600 at various authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo and Amazon)…
