16×20″ Canvas Prints with Free Shipping: One $24 OR Two for $40 [updated]

UPDATE good until Monday 10/2/17 night, coupon SALE3 drops the price of these to $24 for a single or $40 for a 2-pack… The previous sale was $25 and $37 respectively…

The key to finding good canvas print offers on Groupon is to look for offers with free shipping of your printed canvas, otherwise, the sale price gets eaten up by the shipping fees. So with this, until Saturday night, we have both a sale AND free shipping!

Canvas On Demand, a regular canvaseer (new word?) on Groupon is offering 16×20-inch Custom Canvas Wraps for $24 if you buy one, or for $40 if you buy them as a 2-pack. You have to select the “Two” from the menu to get the discount, not two individual units. No coupon is needed, the price you see is the price you pay.

The terms state in multiple places that free shipping is included in the offer. You can redeem one Groupon voucher per redemption order placed at Canvas On Demand, but since you get free shipping, this is not an issue with this order (other print offers has mandatory shipping per order).

You can buy four vouchers (1-packs or 2-packs, your choice) and an additional voucher as a gift. Ships to US/AK/HI only. Check the full terms and conditions over there. Note that if you buy the discounted 2-packs, both prints must be ordered in the same order and ship to the same address (which is probably why they are able to offer a discount).

Offer expires Saturday night (9/30/17). This is the deadline to purchase the voucher, not to decide on what to print.

4TB Seagate Backup Plus Portable External HDD USB 3.0 for $101.49

Used Nikon D800 for $1080+, Refurbished for $1700

If you prefer the Nikon D800 body only over the Nikon D800E, Adorama has options for you too!

If you are comfortable with heavily used but still functioning DSLRs, KEH Camera is offering the Nikon D800 body only in “BGN” (Bargain) condition for $1079 plus shipping with a 180-day warranty.

The USED prices at Adorama start at $1200 in “Used – Very Good” condition and increase as the condition increases. Check the “What’s in The Box”s section of each individual listing to see what’s included and other details about that particular listing.

USED items sold by Adorama come with a 90-day Adorama warranty.

On the other hand, if you prefer manufacturer refurbished DSLRs with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty, Adorama is offering them in manufacturer refurbished condition for $1700 with free shipping.

Used Nikon D800E for $1400+, Refurbished for $2050

Nikon has a lot of 35mm full frame DSLRs these days, more so in their D8XX-series. Coming out in a few days/weeks is the D850 for $3300 [see Stock Status Tracker], coinciding with the anniversary festivities.

If you want a Nikon D8XX DSLR but want a much lower price, the Nikon D800E is available in USED Condition at Adorama for $1400 plus shipping in “Excellent Minus (E-)” condition with a 90-day warranty from Adorama. Better conditions go for more. These are used, not manufacturer refurbished.

But if you prefer them in officially blessed manufacturer refurbished condition with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty, Adorama is offering them for $2050.

Refurbished Nikon D5600 with 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 DX non-VR for $620

The prices are good enough value wise for the refurbished Nikon D3400 kits, however, some people may prefer a more recent and a more advanced APS-C Nikon DSLR as their entry-point into the system. But still want to get the two standard kit lenses, the 18-55 DX VR and the 70-300 DX non-VR.

If so, Adorama comes to the rescue, they are offering in manufacturer refurbished condition for $620 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.

At authorized dealers, in new condition, the D5600 two-lens kit goes for $900 with freebies, eg B&H Photo and Amazon itself (no freebies).

Refurbished Nikon D3400 w/18-55 DX VR for $360, w/18-55 DX VR & 70-300 DX non-VR for $425

If you are looking for a “Take Pictures With” entry-point into the Nikon DSLR system, Adorama has a couple of offers on manufacturer Nikon D3400 DSLR kits with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty as follows:

The manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3400 with 18-55 DX VR in the black color scheme goes for $360 with free shipping.

Or if you want to also get the 70-300mm DX non-VR lens, then you can get the D3400 two lens kit (18-55, 70-300) for $425 with free shipping in the Black Color Scheme or the Red Color Scheme. So $65 more adds the 70-300 DX non-VR lens to your purchase.

In new condition at authorized Nikon dealers, the D3400 with 18-55 kit goes for $500, and the two lens kit goes for $600 with extras, eg B&H Photo.

Refurbished Nikon Coolpix A900 for $265

The Nikon Coolpix A900 compact without RAW goes for $379+ in new condition at authorized dealers (eg Amazon by Amazon itself), but if you want to save some more, you can get it in manufacturer refurbished condition for $265 with free shipping and 90-day Nikon USA warranty at Adorama.

In-Stock Now: various Fuji X-E3 kits at normal prices

A number of Fuji X-E3 kits are now in-stock at their normal prices. As usual, situations can be kerfuflly on release day and supplies are often limited, so YMMV…

In-Stock Alert: Olympus E-M10 III Body for $650

The “smartphonization” of digital cameras (the addition of smartphone-like features, Wifi, touchscreens, NFC, companion apps, syncing, etc) has the added benefits to manufacturers of encouraging photographers to follow the upgrade cycles, similar to the smartphone upgrade cycles.

With that master of the obvious generalization out of the way, we have a new in-stock alert! The recently revealed [see New Cameras of 2017] Olympus E-M10 III body only is now in-stock and ready to ship for its starting price of $650 at Adorama in the black color scheme and the silver color scheme! Free expedited shipping is included!

If instead you prefer a previous generation model, getting reliable used (eg from places that test and stand behind their used products like KEH, B&H, Adorama) or manufacturer refurbished can save you money while lowering the risks of a eBay purchases from unreliable sellers.

Which brings us to the Olympus Outlet store currently offering the E-M10 II body only in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty, or with the 14-42mm EZ lens for $430.

Refurbished Nikon D7200 body for $710

The Nikon D7200 body only is no longer “the latest generation”. The Nikon D7500 is the latest APS-C model going for $1250 as body only [see Stock Status Tracker].

The Nikon D7200 body only, in new condition, at authorized dealers, it goes for $1000 with some free accessories, such as Adorama and various at Amazon.

If you are gonna get the previous generation, you might as well pay less by going the manufacturer refurbished route and that’s where Adorama comes in, offering the D7200 body only in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty for $710 with free shipping. That’s almost $300 less than new condition.

Optionally, under the yellow “Special Offer” section, you can add to the camera with a combined purchase discount promotion the 1-Year Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan for +$100, instead of its regular price of +$120.

Speaking of Adorama, here is the latest situation in their Nikon manufacturer refurbished gear:

+ recently added refurbished Nikon gear

+ all refurbished Nikon gear

A proper superzoom lens sale! The new condition Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens is on sale for $329 with free expedited shipping in the Canon and Nikon DSLR systems at B&H Photo. VC here meaning Vibration Correction which is Tamron-speak for image stabilization.

Used Vivitar 5.1MP Digital Camera with 1.8-Inch TFT for $6

If you need a basic camera to experiment upon, the badly reviewed Vivitar 5.1MP Digital Camera with 1.8-Inch TFT Panel has crashed down to $6 in “Used – Like New” condition in original packaging at Amazon Warehouse Deals. This is best suited for experimentation and DIY projects and such, not picture taking.

Free 2-day shipping for Prime members. It’s not an Add-On item ~ they really want to get rid of it 🙂

This was discovered while I was dumpster-diving in the Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin clearance.

Ten FREE 4×6″ photo prints at CVS on next T-Mobile Tuesday

If you are a T-Mobile customer, you are automatically eligible to get some “freebies” every Tuesday as part of their “T-Mobile Tuesdays” magenta overload program.

For Tuesday October 3 in 2017, one of the freebies are ten 4×6 inch photo prints at CVS. The offer is only good for store pickup, you have to be physically near a CVS stores, or have the orders print near someone else you know that can pick them up.

The offers are typically per line, not per account, so if you have more than one T-Mobile line on your account, you may be able to get multiple freebies. I think this is the first time they offer CVS photo print freebies, so I don’t think it is known how the mechanics of the offer work.

Free Philips Hue lightbulb with pre-orders of new Amazon Echo Plus device

Photography is light, any opportunity for free light is a good one 🙂 This sentence foreshadows a freebie of the lighting kind!

For a limited time, Amazon is offering a FREE Philips Hue light bulb when you pre-order their brand new Echo PLUS Alexa device. for $150. That’s the price with or without the Philips Hue at the moment. The Echo Plus is available in three color options.

When you add it to the shopping cart, it tells you there are two items in your order, but they show up as one entry, as a bundle of two items.

Also available for pre-order, but without a free Philips Hue are the Echo Spot for $130, and the new Echos for $100 to $120.

UPDATE: but that’s not all. Amazon has also revealed a brand new Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD and Alexa Voice Remote for just $70, undercutting most of the competition. But that’s not all. On the same listing, they have options with an OTA Antenna for $5 more, or with an Echo Dot in a “value meal” for $80 total.

Fuji X-E3 added to Stock Status Tracker

The Fuji X-E3 is estimated by Amazon to come out September 28, but you know how it is with estimates. So I have just added the X-E3 body only to the Stock Status Tracker. I will also keep an eye on the other two official kits, but the compromise made in order to add it to the Tracker without adding more overhead was to focus on the X-E3 body only.
