Thank You Points: 20% off on select Reward Redemptions (GoPro, a couple of Coolpix)

Good until 8/31/15, if you have enough Citibank Thank You Rewards points, they are having a 20% off redemption sale on select items available through their rewards program. The offer slideshow shows the Nikon Coolpix S7000 and S33 waterproof, the GoPro Hero + Handler, etc. I don’t know if the list of rewards differs depending on which credit cards you have linked to your Thank You account so there might be a bit of YMMV. No coupon needed, the points needed to redeem are adjusted automatically by them.

Strategically this may be a good deal if the discounted redemption price in points is lower than the actual price at major retailers, and if it is better compared to other redemptions (eg gift cards for various retailers).

Refurbished Fuji S9200 superzoom (50x) for $130 or S8600 (35x) for $85 [updated]

Fuji alone has close to a million S-series superzooms, and that’s before you factor in the options from all the other manufacturers. One of the S-Superzoom models is the S9200 (50x optical) and said camera is offered in certified refurbished condition (90 day warranty, all accessories) for $130 with free Prime shipping by Dealfisher fulfilled by Amazon.

Refurbished Nikon S9900 compact-zoom for $230

The Nikon Coolpix S9900 is offered manufacturer refurbished with a 90 day Nikon USA warranty for $230 with free shipping at Groupon Goods. Before I give you the spoiler, take a closer look at that listing. Spoiler in the next paragraph, stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled 🙂

The spoiler is… the picture is of a Sony superzoom camera, but everything in the listing is about the Nikon S9900 which may perhaps explain why they only sold one, even though it’s a good price, when you consider the new condition is $300 at Amazon and Best Buy upon eBay et al. The Groupon listing for the new condition Coolpix S9900 has the correct picture.

Imported (grey market) Nikon D4S body only for $4000

More eBay action, this time of the imported grey-market variety, without a Nikon USA warranty but with a seller one year warranty. eBay seller Get It Digital (99.7%) is offering the new condition grey-market imported Nikon D4S body only for $4000 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer. It does not come with a Nikon USA warranty instead the seller provides a one year warranty (parallel in features to the manufacturer warranty), with the “Item Specifics” on the eBay listing saying: “Trained Professionals at Authorized Repair Center”.

If you are not comfortable with imported grey-market items, you can get it manufacturer refurbished with a 90 day Nikon USA warranty for $5000 at Adorama.

The new condition price, at authorized Nikon dealers is $6000 with some offering free accessories, such as B&H Photo (32GB Extreme, extra battery, shutter release, shoulder bag) and Adorama (2% rewards and extra accessories or free Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount mic) or Amazon (64GB Lexar, camera bag).
