NewEgg launches Thursday Live Stream with Deals

Online shopping got a bit stale in terms of innovation before the explosion of mobile, and now, the much tighter integration of digital and “real world” is bringing more crazy things, like Amazon’s Treasure Truck.

NewEgg doesn’t have Amazon-type of real world infrastructure, but they have YouTube technology! Every Thursday at 1pm ET, they are starting a NewEgg NOW Live Stream talking about various tech products and services, and while that stream is running, below it, a variety of tech deals are offered.

They require a promo code, which means they’ll want an email address in order to use the coupon codes. Currently they have a couple of Surfaces, a couple of MSI laptops and more. This is the first time I’ve seen this, so I don’t know what to expect from it. Only time will tell!

You can also watch their live stream on YouTube, embedded below:

Sony RX100 V with $50 GC for $1000 (or $800 open-box)

The Sony RX100 V rawsumer goes for $1000 at authorized dealers, which are allowed to be bundle it with things. B&H Photo is bundling it with a $50 B&H Photo e-gift card.

If you prefer an accessor-a-palooza instead, Beach Camera thru Amazon offers a boatload of free accessories (including useful things like 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC and extra charger/batteries), and so does Cameta thru Amazon.

But if you prefer a lower out of pocket price, and you are comfortable with open-box, then to the eBay Deals we go, where the official Best Buy eBay store is offering it in open box condition for $80 with free shipping. Limit three per customer.

3TB Seagate Backup Plus USB 3.0 External HDD for $73 after coupon

If 3TB is your favorite storage option, the BuyDig Rakuten store is offering the 3TB Seagate Backup Plus USB 3.0 External Hard Drive for $73 with free shipping after you enter promo code BYD9 at checkout. The price before the coupon is $83. Coupon expires 10/23/17 PM or earlier if sold out.

Speaking of Rakuten, the Dell Rakuten store (yes, Dell opened a Rakuten store) is offering the Dell UltraSharp 24 Wireless Connect Monitor for $230 with free shipping after promo code DELL30 entered in the shopping cart. Coupon ends 10/22/2017.

Moto X4 with Prime Lockscreen Offers for $330

If you don’t want to pay Samsung and Apple and iGoogle nearly four figures for their latest flagships, but still want to get a solid smartphone, the fourth generation of the Moto X is rolling out for $400. But if you are a Prime member and don’t object to seeing Lockscreen Offers and Ads, Amazon is offering this model for $70 less, you can get the Lenovorola Moto X4 for $330 in either color scheme. Limit one per color per customer. It will come out October 26 (2017).

This is an all-carrier phone, it works with all four major US carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon), which will likely (other things equal) help with its resale value as long as most phones sold are not all-carrier phones.

Of photography interest, it has dual rear cameras and microSD slot and IP68 water resistant. With 3GB RAM and Snapdragon 630 and 32GB on-board and 5.2″ 1080p screen.

B&N coupon: 10% off $35+ OR 15% off $60+

If you like to buy books at the Barnes and Noble website, they have a new promotion running until 10/20/17 at 11:59PM, coupon code GOBIG gets you a discount depending on your order total:

+ 10% off orders of $35+
+ 15% off orders of $60+
+ the usual coupon exclusions apply

Independently of the coupon, a redistribution of the old Apple Price Fixing e-Book Settlement is in progress, so if you find small store credits in your e-book seller accounts, this is probably it.

Strategically this is good for books and such that have the same price everywhere, whether they are big photography books or camera guides, or instructional guides. Publishers love having price control, so coupons like this are a good way to get a discount on books that are price fixed.

The Clearance section is another place to look for deals. You can drill down the sub-categories or go directly to the Photography Clearance section. There’s also this 30% – 75% off Clearance page.

Thursday: 15% back in Rakuten Rewards

At the Rakuten website, good until Thursday 11:59pm pacific time, you can get 15% back in Rakuten Rewards Points over there. You have to be member of their Rewards program in order to get the rewards points. You pay the price you see on the screen. This is not a checkout discount. You can them spend the Rakuten Points in future purchases at the Rakuten website.

Promotion details at the bottom of Promotional page. It’s funny how companies use tiny fineprint on Terms and Conditions on the web, where there is INFINITE scrolling space 🙂

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.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Category posts here…

Pay $45, Get $50 Google Play Gift Card

Google and Amazon have a complicated relationship. They are the definition of frenemies on so many levels. Case in point, Amazon is offering a $50 Google Play Gift Card for $45 with free shipping. This is a plastic gift card delivered by mail. Prime members get free 2-day shipping or if it is available in your region, it also qualifies for free 1-day delivery. This is a 10% straight up discount.

Another option this week: 20% back in Plenti Points at Rite Aid
But IF you are a participating in the Plenti rewards program, this shopping week you can get 500 Plenti points back on a $25 Google Play gift card at Rite Aid brick and mortar stores. So you getting 20% back in points, but you pay full price at checkout.

You can’t use Plenti points to buy gift cards, so you can’t roll over the same balance for more gift card promotions. You can spend the Plenti points in future purchases at Rite Aid and other participating locations (eg Exxon-Mobil gas stations, Macy’s, etc). Limit two per customer for this week which expires Saturday 10/21/17.

PRO TIP: Google Play gift cards are a great way to get roundabout discounts on monthly subscriptions that never get discounted. Nowadays you can pay for subscriptions on Google Play using your Google Gift Card Balance, you don’t have to pay using a credit card. So you can load up your Google account with gift cards, and pay for your Netflix and HBO Now and Google Music / YouTube Red and everything else that offers subscriptions through Google Play! You can even pay for the darned “CBS All Access” subscription if you want to watch the new Star Trek: Discovery.

Fuji X-T20 kits drop $100 (Body for $799, Etc)

As part of the new Fuji Instant Savings, the Fuji X-T20 camera is down by $100, with the Body Only going for $799, the X-T2 with 16-50 going for $899, and the X-T2 with 18-55mm going for $1100.

Adorama has a super bundle but it remains at $1199 and includes the Fuji X-T20 with 16-50 and 50-230 and Fuji hand grip and Lowepro 140 and 16GB Sandisk Extreme and ProOptic filter kit, Corel software bundle, Lowepro lens case, and a few more lens-a-ccessories.

Used Fuji X100F drops to $1137 in either color

Despite the new Fuji Instant Savings, the Fuji X100F holds steady at $1300 in new condition at authorized dealers. If you are comfortable with USED condition though, the price has dropped to $1137~ in both colors, by Amazon Warehouse deals itself. Other 3rd-party sellers there have it for less but if you are not familiar with them, it’s a higher risk!

As of the time of writing, both the Used X100F black and the Used X100F silver go for $1137.

As usual, do pay attention to who the actual seller is. The price alone should not be the sole determining factor!
