Thursday Lightning Deals: Feiyu, Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 40 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.

Great Off-Topic Deal: Snack Sample Box (Prime only)

This is an “off topic” deal but it’s a very good deal if you …eat food 🙂 The offer is for Prime members only. Amazon launched a brand new Snack Sample Box with a minimum of ten different items (the one I got had 11). You pay $9.99 for this box with free shipping (not 2-day, it is standard/slower free shipping).

After your box ships, Amazon sends you an email informing you that a $9.99 credit has been added to your account automatically. You can use this credit to buy any of the 140+ eligible food/snacks in any combination and in multiple orders. You can tell the credit is in your account when you see it deducted at the top right corner of the Checkout page. You don’t have to enter any coupons. You can filter using the left sidebar (eg non-GMO, GF, Kosher, Vegan, Organic, etc).

PS: if you like the way this promotion is structured, they have many other Sample Boxes as well. If some eligible products belong to multiple sample boxes, credits from all eligible sample boxes will be applied to your order.

YMMV: 8% back in eBay Bucks [no minimum amount]

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Friday 3am eastern (8/18/17), you earn 8% eBay Bucks on your purchases This particular promotion has no minimum purchase price, so even a $1 item will get you bonus bucks.

First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period. The email title announcing this promotion is not as clear as previous ones, but it has “eBay Bucks” in it, so look for that if you are skimming or filtering eBay emails.

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Category posts.
