512GB WD MyPassport SSD (USB-C, USB-A) for $140

Speaking of storage, the new condition 512GB WD MyPassport Portable SSD is on sale for $140 with free shipping by Amazon itself with up to three per customer at the sale price. The shipping estimate is 1-3 weeks, a sign that it is starting to run out. This works with USB-C version 3.1 (and Gen 2 ready). And of course it is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 full size (Type A, not Taipei).

Alpine Labs Spark Camera Remote for $59

Another crowdfunding success story, the Alpine Labs Spark Camera Remote is currently on sale for $59 at Stacksocial. If you join their email list as a first time customer, you get a 10% off coupon. There are four different cable option bundles. You can check the camera compatibility to see which cable works with which cameras.

GetOlympus Outlet store listings improvements

The main listings index of the Olympus USA Outlet store has finally seen some improvements. You can now see from the index of available items which ones are out of stock and you can add-to-cart directly. A step in the right direction, but more work must needs be done!

GoPro HERO5 Session for $199

The new condition GoPro HERO5 Session is now down to $199 at a number of sellers including MooseJaw (earn $20 in Moosejaw rewards) and Adorama and Amazon itself (max three per customer) and Abt (eBay)… Already, B&H Photo has sold out…

Speaking of action cameras, there are a couple of active sales on YI action cameras at the moment..

YI 4K+ Sports and Action Camera for $238 [limit 2]

Separately and independently from the YI Lite action camera being a lightning deal, the official YI Amazon store has also put on sale (not a lightning deal) the new condition YI 4K+ Sports and Action Camera with 4K/60fps Resolution, EIS, Live Stream, Voice Control and 12MP Raw Image for $238 with free shipping. Limit up to two per customer. This being an “old fashioned sale”, I do not know if/when it ends…

Adorama 48 Hour and Lighting/Studio Sales

Adorama is currently running two sale promotions. First up is a 48 Hour Sale featuring a mix of products, and then there is a Lighting Week sale featuring lighting/studio type of products. Digest/breakdown of these later today on a time-permitting basis. If only I was Watson/Siri/GA/Bixby/Cortana/HAL…

Massdrop Vast 35-Inch Curved Gaming Monitor for $600 w/FS

If you are a fan of curved computer monitors, the shopping club/website that is Massdrop is offering the new condition Massdrop Vast 35-Inch Curved Gaming Monitor for $600 with free shipping to US addresses. This is a 3440 x 1440p, with FreeSync, 2ms response, 1800R curvature, 100% sRGB, VA panel, static contrast ratio of 2,500 to 1, etc. This is made by AU Optronics in collaboration with Massdrop, thus they put their name on the product.

A total of 1500 units are available as part of this sale, with just over 1000 of them sold as of the time of writing. They come with a one year warranty on the panel, and two year warranty on the electronics inside.

Unlike Amazon, there is no such thing as Prime shipping for Massdrop. The more unique and custom a product, the longer it takes. This one is estimated to ship in mid July 2018. I repeat, this ships mid-July 2018, so if you don’t want to wait, do not buy this!

NEW: $6/mo Prime membership for qualifying Medicaid recipients

Overshadowed by the LOL-worthy and Black Mirror-esque news of Alexa laughing at customers (it’s not you, it’s Alexa, or the ghost inside the Echo 😉 was another new expansion of the Prime pool by Amazon. They are launching a Prime discounted membership option for qualifying Medicaid recipients for $6 per month. This is similar (or an expansion) of their existing $6/mo EBT membership. Just like “Amazon Student”, a customer can be on this discounted program for up to four years.

The list of Prime benefits is getting longer and longer, and Amazon is also making noise about getting into the health care business. Certainly this Medicaid development is a step in the right direction.

What next? Prime NOW will deliver a doctor to your front door when you want/need one?
