Wednesday Lightning Deals: Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are around 50 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

One name-brand item among this lot:

+ starts 7:30pm ET: Cyberlink PowerDirector 15 Ultimate (price before sale $61)

Monoprice OTG Card Reader Adapter for $3 w/free S&H

Doorbuster with free standard US shipping at Monoprice, they are offering the new condition Monoprice OTG Card Reader Adapter for $3 with free shipping. You can buy as many as you want. Even if you buy one unit, you still get free shipping. It averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 20 customer reviews. Of interest if the microUSB hardware and software of your smartphones and tablets support OTG.

This may also help lower the shipping fee of any other items you buy in the same shopping cart with it that don’t qualify with free shipping (not sure exactly how this works, YMMV).

6TB Seagate Backup Plus Hub Desktop External HDD for $140

All your data are belong to you, and backups are rather boring yet so important! Which brings us to the new condition 6TB Seagate Backup Plus Hub Desktop External USB 3.0 Hard Drive, model STEL6000100, on sale for $140 with free shipping at NewEgg and at Amazon by Amazon itself.

Speaking of computer-related matters, the 5-Device Norton Security Deluxe PC/Mac with a 1-year subscription to updates is on sale for $32 in either a digital download (limit two 5-packs per customer) or as a keycard delivered by mail (no limits). At the moment the 5-device option costs almost half as the 3-device option.

Miller 311 Solo Carbon Fiber Monopod for $130

Another benefit of a monopod is that you use it to cosplay Gandalf when you are out and about in nature with no judgmental people watching you 🙂 Which brings us to the Miller 311 Solo Carbon Fiber Monopod on sale for $130 with free expedited shipping.

Shopping News: PayPal now lets you set a Credit Card as Default Payment Method

After wasting the time of millions of online shoppers who had to frantically change the PayPal payment method to a credit card every single time they made a purchase so iffy eBay sellers wouldn’t raid their checking account directly, PayPal, now in trouble because there are LOTS and LOTS of other alternative payment methods, FINALLY allows you to set a default payment method to …the one you like, including a …credit card (*GASP*).

I’m sure they’ll make a full length documentary about the amazing scientific struggles PayPal had to go through for this mind-blowing technological breakthrough, twenty years in the making 🙂

This is a relatively recent change and PayPal has been sending email reminders of this change. Here’s a screenshot from them:

Fujifilm instax mini NYC Instant Film (10 exp) for $10

And now instant camera food 🙂 The first and second editions of the Fujifilm instax mini NYC Instant Film (ten exposures each) are on sale for $10 each at B&H Photo for a limited time. In other words, it’s $1 per exposure, which encourages the shooter to think before shooting 🙂

The “NYC edition” is NYC themed frames (check the gallery pictures over there to see them all). Free shipping with orders of $49+.

For ideas on what else to get to reach $49+, check the B&H Featured Sales and Back to School sale.

GoPro Remote 1.0 and Wrist Housing Bundle for $29 w/free S&H [official accessories]

If you are looking for official GoPRO accessories (instead of the hundreds of 3rd party ones), B&H Photo is offering the new condition GoPro Remote 1.0 and Wrist Housing Bundle for $29 with free shipping. This includes a Remote and various Mounting Straps.

Also on sale is the GoPro 3-Way for the very specific price of $55.20 with free shipping.

(ENDED) Cyberlink PowerDirector 15 Ultimate for $37

This daily deal expired, but fear not, Cyberlink is one of the recurring brands at the Gold Box, so it will likely return at some unpredictable point in time in the future…

The Cyberlink PowerDirector 15 Ultimate software, as a PC Disk, is a lightning deal for the very specific price of $37.02 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself until 1:30am ET on Thursday or earlier if sold out, as one of the lightning deals of the Amazon Gold Box.
