Samsung Chromebook PRO + $50 Gift Card for $500

Thanks to the gift card promotion, Amazon is effectively price-matching their Black Friday prices by offering the new condition Intel-powered Samsung Chromebook PRO (model XE510C24-K01US) for $500 with a FREE $50 Amazon Gift Card (physical gift card). Add both to the shopping cart and proceed to checkout. The price of the gift card will be automatically deducted while this offer is running.

The PLUS model (ARM powered) is currently sold out but also participating in the offer.

The 3:2 aspect ratio of these make them a great candidate for photography viewing and reading e-books with pictures and diagrams and graphics, and digital magazines and online articles.

These two Samsung are compatible with the full size (real pencil/pen size) Samsung STAEDTLER Noris Digital Pencil which goes for $22.50 with free shipping at the moment at B&H Photo. This works with a variety of other Samsung Note phones, tablets and laptops. For some older Notes, you may have to manually remove the original S-Pen from its slot before this pencil can work. For newer models like the PLUS and PRO, the Norris Pencil works regardless of where the S-Pen is.

That’s not all. A few other Chromebooks are also participating in the $50 Gift Card promotion including the ASUS Flip C302, along with models from Acer, Dell and HP. Both the laptop and gift card must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself.

Sony a7r II Body with Free Sony Battery Grip for $2400

Thanks to one of our readers for the alert for this one! The Best Buy website includes a FREE Sony battery grip with the purchase of the Sony a7r II body only at its standard price of $2400. If you are not familiar with the Best Buy website, there is a tiny “Includes Free: 2 items” link on their page, and also a blue banner that says “Free Battery Grip”.

If you don’t want/need the battery grip, for the same price, B&H Photo is offering either a free 4TB external HDD or a 12-month Photographer Creative Cloud, plus the official Sony Soft Carrying Case.

Imported Nikon D850 Body “drops” to $3400

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there is a “discount” on the limited availability premium of the Nikon D850. The camera’s official price is $3300 at authorized dealers, but it went over $3500 by importers who had it in-stock. Now the “limited availability premium” is shrinking, it’s “only” +$100, you can get it in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty (not Nikon USA) by eBay seller Deals All Year (New Jersey) for $3400 with free shipping.

Personally I would wait for the Nikon USA authorized dealers, but I am not the Master of the Universe (I am barely the master of my thoughts), I can’t decide for everybody else 🙂

Due to time constraints (dentist appointment) I cannot do an “Into the Gold Box” right now…

Used Fuji X100F Silver for $1051

Also while updating the Stock Status Tracker we found a lower used price of the silver Fuji X100F at Amazon Warehouse Deals in “Used – Good” condition, sold and shipped by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself, and with a description and pictures of the available used unit:

Fuji X100F Black drops to $1274

While updating the Stock Status Tracker, I noticed an interesting development! The black Fuji X100F is down to $1274 at Amazon by Amazon actual with up to three per customer. The usual Fuji X100F is $1299. The amount of the discount is obviously not big, but an X100F discount is a rare thing from non-importers!

A sign of the shape of things to come or some random price change by the Amazon AI Price Bots?

Woot-OFF at Sellout/Holiday

It’s the Green Monday After Party, today is Green Tuesday and it is celebrated with a Woot-OFF at Sellout/Holiday. Only this and Wine are on Woot-OFF. The other sub-Woots have regular sales, including a Centon USB stick sale at Woot Computer. These run in 24 hour blocks. Their start and end time is 1am Eastern.

Refurb Dell Latitude E6430 Laptops under $200

Another day, another offer from Dell Refurbished. This is an old fashioned sale, not a coupon, the Dell Latitude E6430 Laptops are on sale starting at $179 plus free ground shipping for US addresses. Prices are below $200 during this sale. Coupons cannot be used on this offer which expires 1/2/2018 at 11:59pm central.

Amazon Printed Books: $5 off a $15+ purchase

Amazon is back with a printed books coupon! Coupon code BOOKGIFT17 gets you $5 off the purchase of $15 or more in Physical/Printed Books. The coupon expires on Thursday 12/14/17 at 11:59pm pacific, so you have plenty of time to decide. These are the Terms and Conditions. Books must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not 3rd-party sellers, not “fulfilled by Amazon”.

Other non-digital formats may also be eligible, eg comic books or audiobooks on CD. The only way to be sure is to add the items of interest to the shopping cart, and enter the coupon and see what happens.

Strategically this is good for books that have the same prices everywhere, or rarely go on sale. Some places to look for ideas:

+ best seller lists

+ Photography Best Sellers

+ then drill down the sub-categories on the left-hand side, eg Black and White Photography or Digital Photography

+ those categories have sub-categories for further drilling down, eg Editing or Flash Photography

+ as usual, these rankings are only as good as the accuracy of the product categorization

In-Stock Oddities: USED New Sony a7r III body for $3200 (updated)

UPDATE 12/12/17 at 10:20am ET
Stranger in a stranger land. Now the same seller has a USED listing through Amazon which says it is brand new. Here’s a screenshot…

This is bizarre, I’d say wait for the more well-known retailers to have it in-stock 🙂

ORIGINAL POST
I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there are some promising news, the camera is shown as in-stock for its starting price of $3200 by seller “Cardinal Photo” through Amazon. This ships directly from Cardinal Photo, and it is not eligible for Prime shipping.

The shipping estimates will vary depending on how near/far you are to the shipping routes as they intersect with Cardinal’s location.

Rakuten Green Monday is 20% off site-wide

Rakuten too is celebrating Green Monday with coupon code GREEN20 that gets you 20% off almost everything at the Rakuten website during Green Monday. As usual, some products and brands are excluded from the coupon discount for various reasons.

Canon SL2 with 18-55 and 75-300 and 50/1.8 for $779 at Costco [non-members for $819]

The Canon SL2 with the 18-55 lens goes for $600 in new condition at authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo) but if you also want the Canon 50mm f1.8 STM and 75-300 f4-5.6 III non-USM lenses, you can get them all together as a bundle with a Canon bag, 32GB SD card for $780 at Costco. Non-members can buy it with a 5% surcharge (= $819).

This depends on whether you want all three lenses. The Canon 50mm f1.8 lens goes for $125 on its own, so is the 75-300mm non-USM and the bag/SD worth an extra $55 for you? Or an extra $94 if you are not a Costco member. Sales tax is extra as usual. I do not mention or calculate sales tax in the deal posts since it varies based on many factors.

Speaking of Costco, a number of gift cards for national and regional restaurants are available with nice discounts of around 20% and they are available to purchase for non-members as well. Many of these are delivered as multiple $20 or $25 gift cards, making it easier to split the order with friends and family or use them as gifts. Speaking of gifts, some of the toy drive folks often need gifts for older kids, and they say gift cards are one good option ~ in case you need ideas or reasons to buy these 🙂

Panasonic ZS100 with $80 Gift Card and $22 Rewards and Panasonic Travel Bundle (Charger, Battery) for $548

Another freebie has been added to this. The new condition Panasonic ZS100 superzoom (1″ sensor, 10x optical zoom) is offered in a bundle at Adorama for $548 with free shipping with these freebies:

+ $80 Adorama gift certificate
+ $22 Adorama promotional rewards
+ Panasonic DMW-BLG10 Li-Ion Battery & Charger Travel Bundle (which as the name suggests includes a charger and a battery)

The sale is good for the black or the silver color scheme.

A number of Panasonic gear continues to be offered with either free gift cards or free lenses, find those in our earlier Panasonic posts.

Imported Nikon D850 Body w/1-YR Seller W for $3775

If you really don’t want to wait for the Nikon D850 to come in-stock from authorized Nikon USA dealers for $3300 [check the Stock Status Tracker for that], and you are willing to pay a limited availability premium, and get a 1-year seller warranty (instead of a Nikon USA warranty), then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Deals All Year” is offering the new condition Nikon D850 body only for $3775 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller, not Nikon USA. Limit one per buyer.

They sold 54 of these, so temptation won over 54 people so far. Personally I wouldn’t buy it, but I’m not the master of the universe, other people have different preferences and priorities 🙂
