Olympus M43rds Combined Purchase discounts: one camera (OMDs, E-P5, E-PL7), up to 4 lenses (choice of 15) in same transaction [max savings $800]

Olympus is currently running a Micro Four Thirds combined purchase promotion. Purchase one camera (eligible options are the OM-Ds (E-M1, E-M5, E-M10), the E-P5, the E-PL7) and up to four lenses from a choice of 15 lenses. Each lens added to the cart has a discount of either $100 or $200 attached to it. You can add up to four lenses for a maximum savings of $800 per shopping cart! Eligible lenses are high and low, from the 12-40/2.8 to the 14-42/3.5-5.6 II R. It’s a mix of zooms and primes, including one pancake. I didn’t find a promotion-wide expiration date, but the prices of the individual products are good until 11/1/14, so we can perhaps assume that’s the expiration date of this promotion.

In a separate promotion, you can get the VF-4 viewfinder for $100 if you purchase it together with the E-P5 body only. This VF4 promotion ends 10/25/14.

In yet another promotion, Olympus offers free 2-day shipping with orders of $50 or more. This shipping promotion ends 10/23/14.

Tigerdirect: $27 off a $270+ with personalized coupon

Tigerdirect is celebrating its 27 year anniversary, and to celebrate that, they have a $27 off a purchase of $270 or more promotion. This promotion is a two step. First you request the coupon to be sent to your email address. Then you wait a few seconds and check your email. Your email from Tigerdirect will include a personalized link that includes a long-ass unique coupon code. You click on that link, and the discount is automatically activated. Then, as the activation page explains: “you place an order online over $270 (not including sales tax and shipping) and $27 will automatically be deducted from your order total in your shopping cart.”… It looks like more retailers are dabbling more in “personalized” (unique) coupon codes instead of general purpose coupons…

AmazonBasics camera bags discounted (limit 3 each for on-sale items)

I’m not sure exactly when the discounts happened, but I was just looking at the best selling camera cases at Amazon, and some of their house brand “AmazonBasics” are discounted. Their Sling Backpack goes for $25 each (limit 3), while their top-selling Backpack for SLR/DSLRs goes for $30 (limit 3) and averages 4.6 out of 5 based on over 2300 customer reviews. They come in frustration-free packaging, so no fighting shrink-wraps or other packaging annoyances. Meanwhile their large DSLR gadget bag goes for $21.50 each (limit 3), while their holster goes for $16 each (limit 30).

Speaking of Amazon, if you are planning to place an order of $25 or more ($35+ if you want free shipping as a non-Prime member), you can get this eForCity leather hand grip for $4.20 each (that’s the actual price!). This is part of the Add-On program, so the shopping cart won’t allow you to buy it unless your order total is $25 or more. Regardless of Prime membership status. You can buy as many of these as you like. They average 3.5 out of 5 with nearly 600 customer reviews, so there are trade-offs.
