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…
