Meh brings back $5/month free shipping membership

As mentioned in the main text of today’s deal at, Meh is bringing back their free shipping membership plan, let’s call it version 2.0. You pay $5 per month, and you can cancel it at any time.

Now shipping: Nokia 6.1 Android Smartphone (ZEISS Optics) w/free Photo Kit for $269

If you are a Nokia + Zeiss shipper (ha!), the brand new Nokia 6.1 factory-unlocked Android smartphone with Zeiss optics is now in-stock and shipping for $269 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a free “B&H Photo Video Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones” [mount, LED light, flexible tripod] automatically included by B&H.

This runs Android 8.0, with 3GB RAM [probably the minimum these days for Android], 32GB on-board, microSD storage, GSM, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C connector [but not USB 3.x features],

One of the things Nokia is promising with their Android phone line-up is speedy and steady OS and security updates ~ after all the phone is part of Android One. It is easier to promise this when your phone line-up consists of single-figures in individual models, we’ll see how it plays out in the next couple of years ~ after all, most phone manufacturers sound/sounded very optimistic in delivering updates at announcement time, but their post-release records are spotty and patchy [pun intended?]. But they have already delivered multiple updates for their first generation Android phones…

PS: the same price is offered at but without a free photo-video accessories kit…
