B&H Photo Boldly Goes: new PayBoo store credit card pays you back the USA State Sales Tax

Sales Tax is a wallet-biter for internet shoppers in the USA these days. B&H Photo has a new option if you want to pay sales-tax without taking the hit in your wallet. And of course very legally doing so.

They have just launched the B&H PayBoo store credit card. You make online or in-store or by-phone purchases and pay the amount plus any appropriate sales tax. At the same time, the credit card rewards your account with the sales-tax amount, so the net balance of your credit card is without the sales tax amount.

For example, let’s say you purchased Hypothetical 50mm f0.005 IS Macro Tilt-Shift for $100. Sales tax in your state is $7. The credit card charges you $107, so you have paid your sales tax. At the same time, the B&H PayBoo store credit card credits $7 to your account. So the balance you have to pay is $100.

You have to apply and get accepted to the credit card (instant decisions available). It is managed by the Synchrony Bank.

NOTE that this benefit is only available to customers who reside in USA states where:
+ there is sales tax
+ B&H is required by law to collect it at purchase
+ there are no state laws prohibiting this practice

NOTE also that if you change the delivery address (eg different state), the credit amount and whether you get the credit may be impacted as different states have different percentages and laws and some-do and some-don’t collect sales tax.

There is no benefit/reward for international purchases. You will not get back customs or other fees. This benefit is only for US state-tax where eligible/possible.

This is a “house” credit card, it can only be used for B&H purchases at B&H, be it online or in-store or by phone or using the B&H apps or by raven.

NOTE also that you must make the FULL payment using this credit card. If it’s a partial payment with any other payment method, you will not receive the benefits.

STRATEGERY
Overall, this sounds like a promising idea, assuming you plan your purchases wisely and check what your purchasing/finance APRs are in case you are planning to make payments over time ~ especially if there are no special 0% financing offers available at the time of purchase.

This however creates complications if you frequently use or receive B&H Gift Card and/or B&H Rewards, so that’s something to consider. Some states may not collect sales-tax on digital downloads/services (eg CreativeCloud, software purchases, cloud subscriptions), so in those cases, you may be able to pay for them using your B&H gift cards.

Or you can re-gift the B&H gift cards or sell/trade them on the gift card market (plenty of sites and options these days for gift cards)…

Tuesday: HP Tango and Sprocket for $180 (Two Printer Bundle)

Printer action that is a bit of a surprise in the Amazon USA Gold Box, for the price of $180 you get an HP 2-Printer bundle:

Digital picture frames are the dessert of the day at the Amazon USA Gold Box, where Gold Box favorites “NixPlay” are available for $104~ to $146~ for the 10-inch and 13-inch sizes respectively. It is a group listing, so filter through individual reviews. The total score of the 3300+ customer reviews is for all four options in the listing. Amazon really needs to fix their multi-option listings. These work best when an item differs based on color and other cosmetic non-essential factors. When you have different actual products, you need to separate them!

Get 5% Cash (check in the mail) or 10% Trade Bonus (store credit) when you Sell Your Own Gear to KEH Camera w/coupon

This is a sell your own gear promotion, not a buy new/more gear! To celebrate Earth Day, KEH Camera is encouraging us all to sell them back any camera gear we have no use or interest in anymore. The encouragement comes in the form of a coupon: coupon code SYG4A gets you a bonus on the quoted amount depending on you decide to take your payment:

+ if you take cash (a check in the mail), you get a 5% bonus

+ if you select a trade-in bonus (think of it as KEH store credit), you get a 10% bonus.

In other words, let’s say through the years, you have given up on tilt-shift lenses, and you decide to sell your Fictitious 5mm f0.5 lens. Let’s say the initial KEH quote, based on your description and included accessories, is $1000. Using the coupon code, you will get $1050 if you select cash (check in the mail) OR you will get $1100 in KEH store credit to spend on future KEH purchases. Because that Fictitious 7mm f0.7 MACRO OIS DG AF-Z Typ-M you’ve had your eye on for the last seven years costs more than $1100 for sure ^_^

The promotion expires Sunday 4.28.19 at 11:59pm eastern time

PS: I do not know if you can use this coupon more than once during this promotion, so if you have multiple items to sell, mayhaps wait until you can include them all in your sell.

PS2: if you are having a hard time deciding whether to go for cash or KEH store credit, look at your previous KEH purchases (how often do you buy, what gear, what price ranges, etc). Also look at what camera gear you are planning to buy in the next few months and then look at the KEH inventory to see whether the gear you may want to buy are actually available and at what prices and compare to prices from other sellers [considering included or not included warranties in the price].

PS3: note that KEH includes a 180-day warranty on camera gear in USED conditions “BGN” (bargain) and better (Excellent, Like New, etc). However gear in “UG” (Ugly) and “AS IS” and gear that are inoperable do not get a warranty [for obvious reasons]. Check their warranty page for all the details..

This trio of B&H Photo offers is running for the next three days, running until Sunday at 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out). NOTE however that B&H is closed for the Passover Holiday, so any orders placed after Thursday 4/19 at 6pm ET, they will ship after Sunday April 28…

+ JILL-E DESIGNS JACK Hudson Leather Camera Bag for $50

Thursday: 8TB Seagate for $100, 10.5″ iPAD PROs for $550+, Etc

Among the other daily deals, Woot Landia features a new condition 8TB Seagate Backup Plus external USB hard drive for $100 with a 90-day Woot warranty, and a $230 refurbished HP i5 Windoze laptop…

The headliner of the Best Buy dailies is a 10.5-inch iPAD PRO sale starting at $550 for 64GB, $600 (Rose Gold) to $620 for 256GB, and $700 to $720 for 512GB… There’s also open-box options (YMMV) starting at $478… There’s so many iPads nowadays I need to look up the line-up in Wikipedia, I can no longer remember them :)… Given the storage/usability jump from 64GB to 256GB and the lack of microSD, the +$100 Apple tax to jump from 64GB to 256GB is not unreasonable. Unlike the old days where +$100 got you from 16GB to 32GB or 32GB to 64GB 🙂 That’s what happens when sales start stagnating 🙂

Meanwhile in Europe…
Unless it gets extended again, today is the last day at the Amazon Germany Spring Sale Gold Box and this set does not have a dedicated camera sale, but there are some photo-related items:

+ various styles and sizes of old-fashioned (not digital) picture frames, from 11 to 24 euro

+ Samsung Frame TVs from 800 to 1130 euro – in studios and exhibits and such they could be used to digitally showcase photography and video work?
+ the 700 euro is not a “Frame” TV

+ there’s Lenovo and Samsung laptops and tablets on sale

+ networking gear, Fire 7 tablets, Echo gear,

There’s no mention of warranty in the listing. It will ship in mid-May 2019 from Massdrop. The offer runs for the next seven days [from posting date here].

Plan Ahead: Adorama order cut-off for Passover is Friday at 12:30pm ET

We previously mentioned the B&H Photo Passover shopping schedule. Now we have the shopping schedule for the Adorama website. It is a bit different, so pay attention to the cut-off dates below:

Orders placed by Friday 4/19/19 at 12:30pm eastern will be processed on the day they are submitted (unless they hit a snag during the verification process or the products are not in-stock and things of that nature). Ideally, don’t wait until 12:29pm ET to place your order 🙂

Orders placed after that will be processed when Adorama returns from the Passover holiday on Monday April 29 in 2019.

Online ordering and phone sales and customer service are available on some of those days. Check their website for the detailed schedule…
