Amazon Books $5 off / $15+ coupon extended until Friday night

Amazon often extends the book coupons during the holidays and this one is no exception. It was supposed to expire on 12/14/17 at 11:59pm pacific, but now the Terms and Conditions have a Friday 12/15/17 at 11:59pm pacific time expiration date. It is the same coupon code, so I don’t think you will be able to use it twice.

The coupon is this: Coupon code BOOKGIFT17 gets you $5 off the purchase of $15 or more in Physical/Printed Books. Also eligible are photographic and other calendars, comic books, and sometimes even audiobooks on CD. You can add items of interest and coupon to the shopping cart and see what happens. The shopping cart is the ultimate decider of what’s eligible…

Strategically this is good for books that have the same prices everywhere, or rarely go on sale. Some places to look for ideas:

+ best seller lists

+ Photography Best Sellers

+ then drill down the sub-categories on the left-hand side, eg Black and White Photography or Digital Photography

+ those categories have sub-categories for further drilling down, eg Editing or Flash Photography

+ as usual, these rankings are only as good as the accuracy of the product categorization

Thanks to one of our readers for the alert for this one! The Best Buy website includes a FREE Sony battery grip with the purchase of the Sony a7r II body only at its standard price of $2400.

Imported Nikon D850 Body “drops” to $3400

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there is a “discount” on the limited availability premium of the Nikon D850. The camera’s official price is $3300 at authorized dealers, but it went over $3500 by importers who had it in-stock. Now the “limited availability premium” is shrinking, it’s “only” +$100, you can get it in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty (not Nikon USA) by eBay seller Deals All Year (New Jersey) for $3400 with free shipping.

Personally I would wait for the Nikon USA authorized dealers, but I am not the Master of the Universe (I am barely the master of my thoughts), I can’t decide for everybody else 🙂
