Affinity Photo imaging software for $37.49 [Windows]

Adobe just had a record breaking quarter with over two billion dollars in revenue, but that’s not stopping them from raising prices for the Creative Cloud subscription (but not the Photographer Creative Cloud). If you have had enough of Adobe’s tactics and antics or you just want to check out alternative image processing software, the official Microsoft Store is offering the Windows version of “Affinity Photo” by Serif for $37.49. Their other software, “Affinity Designer” is also on sale for the same price. IF you have any Microsoft Store gift cards or Bing Rewards, don’t forget to use them! The sale runs for the next 13 days [as of the time of writing] per the product page.

Monoprice Clearance includes 77mm lens cap for $1.35

Monoprice is running a Spring Clearance Sale. The majority of the items under “Camera & Security” are security but if you need cables (of almost any kind) you will find many and more of them under the “Portable, Audio & Mobile” category. A number of cables and such are under $1. Of the camera and photo items, if you like 77mm center-pinch lens caps, they are on sale for $1.35 each and you can buy as many as you like.

Now the trick to getting a good out of these is to buy them together with something that is eligible for free standard US shipping. This will drop the overall shipping fee for the order or qualify you for faster regional-carrier delivery (if available in your area).

One such item is the new condition Monoprice 27-inch WQHD 2560x1440p computer monitor (TN-LED 144Hz Ultra Slim Aluminum with FreeSync Technology) going for $280 with free standard US shipping.

Canon Pixma MX492 AiO Printer for $20 w/FS [no ink] or $40 w/FS [with ink]

Groupon apparently began offering their own dedicated Daily Deals, and I just added this link to the “Daily Deals Links” in the Siderbar of this blog for your convenience (and to remind me to check daily)!

Among today’s Groupon daily deals is the new condition Canon Pixma MX492 AiO printer offered for $40 with free shipping and free returns. I don’t have my Groupon password memorized so I can’t check if coupon code SALE3 works on it. If it works, the price drops by 10%, making it $36, just above the $34.99 cut-off point for free shipping. This is part of the not-as-slow shipping (calling it faster would create allusions of Prime-like delivery), it ships in two business days instead of the default 7-10 business days. Ships, not delivered, in two business days after ordering! Key distinction here!

That’s if you want the printer as it comes in the retail box. If you already have inks for it or plan to buy them separately, you can get this printer without inks (no inks at all) for $20 with free shipping from discounter And free returns.

Speaking of $20 shipped printers, still good is the new condition Canon PIXMA MG2522 All-in-One Inkjet Printer at Walmart by Walmart itself
