The Yi action camera lightning deal sold out quickly, but here comes a sale (not a lightning deal) on a different one. The Veho Muvi K-Series K-2 NPNG kit, model VCC-006-K2NPNG, is on sale for $140 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. This is a superset of the standard kit that includes a rugged carrying case, and about half a dozen additional accessories.
On the other hand, if you don’t need the extra accessories, the standard kit goes for $135 with free shipping at Adorama (eg if you have Adorama gift certificates or promotional rewards waiting to get spent). If you want to do a detailed comparison of what’s included between the two kits, compare the “What’s In The Box” section on the right side of the Adorama product page between the standard kit and the more expensive kit.
To the Trending eBay Deals we go, where you can get the new condition 16GB Sandisk SDHC Class 4 memory card, model SDSDB-016G-B35, for $6.45 with free shipping. Over 1370 units have been sold so far. It ships from California by eBay seller “allizwell2k10” (99.9%).
Speaking of eBay and storage, the NewEgg eBay store is offering the new condition 4TB Seagate Backup Plus Portable External Hard Drive (with 200GB of Cloud Storage) for $105 with free shipping. Limit five per customer. Nearly 300 units have been sold so far.
Speaking of eBay, the current featured Daily Deal there is the new condition Surface PRO 3 (i7, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, model PU2-00017) offered for $830 with free shipping by eBay seller “Always.Deals” (98%, New Jersey). Over 175 units sold so far per the listing over there.
Might as well turn this post into an eBay round-up. eBay seller “DigJungle” (99.2%, undisclosed USA location) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Canon 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS STM lens for $149 with free shipping. There is no mention of warranty in the listing, so assume there is none!
The older non-stabilized Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 Di-II goes for $300 in new condition at authorized dealers, with some free accessories (eg Adorama). However, if you want to get the stabilized version, the new condition price is $649. However (oh no, breaking the golden rules of writing, two Howevers in a row!), if you are comfortable with used lenses…
Adorama is offering the stabilized version of the lens (“VC”) in “Used – Excellent Minus” condition in the Nikon mount for $269 plus shipping (under $10 for most zipcodes), and in “Used – Demo” condition in the Canon mount for $299 plus shipping (under $10 for most zipcodes).
Adorama offers a 90-day warranty of their own on used items they sell on their website.
As of a 2/14/17 re-check the price increased to $10…
