Tuesday Lightning Deals: Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 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.

Olympus M43rds Trade IN Promotion with Bonus Up to $300 [in addition to actual value of your used traded-in camera gear]

Olympus is running a trade-in promotion at B&H Photo and other dealers that give you a Trade-IN Bonus towards the purchase of select Olympus M43rds cameras and lenses.

Eligible cameras to purchase with this promotion are the E-M1 II, E-M5 II, PEN-F, and E-PL8. Nine Olympus M43rd Prime lenses are also eligible.

You will ALSO receive the trade-in value of the cameras you turn in for the trade-in promotion.

So, for example, if you are buying the Olympus E-M1 II body only through this promotion. The camera’s current price is $2000. If you participate in the trade-in promotion, you get a $300 off trade in-bonus discount. So you pay $1700 for the camera.

You will also receive the trade-in value of the camera you turn it. For example, if you trade-in an old beat-up DSLR, you may get a $100. If you trade-in a recent pristine DSLR, you may get a $500 value. The numbers I’m using here are strictly for example purposes, not based on current market prices!

When you click on the “Start your Trade-In” links over at the trade-in promotional page, you will see a list of eligible camera and lenses for this promotion.

YMMV: 8% back in eBay Bucks on $25+ items [or 6% under $25]

Jump in the Bay of Fees 🙂 This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Thursday 3am eastern (9/7/17), you earn 8% eBay Bucks on your purchases of individual items priced at $25+, or 6% on items individually priced under $25. So you earn bonus bucks even if you buy a $1 eligible item!

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.

DOUBLE DIP ALERT: until Tuesday September 5 (2017) at 11am ET, there is also an eBay coupon promotion. During this time period, once you activate the eBay Bonus Bucks, you can get both the coupon discount and the Bonus Bucks!

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.
