If you are a Dell Home shopper, and you are interested in the Yuneec Typhoon H RTF Drone with ST16, CG03+ and battery, in the new smaller box, you can purchase it for $740 with free shipping. Within twenty days of purchase, you will receive an email with a $150 promotional Dell gift card. The promotional amount must be spent at Dell Home within 90 days after it is sent to you. So in a way, you have to plan how to spend it if you are not a frequent Dell shopper. They have a variety of general purpose technology/computer accessories.

If you don’t see the promotion mentioned at the product page or in the shopping cart, it means the promotion expired. It should look like this:

Still Good: Zeiss Wedding Weeks Instant Savings

With the Passover closing at the end of the week, if you need Zeiss lenses to get to you in the near term, Adorama is continuing their Zeiss Wedding Weeks Instant Savings promotion with a variety of discounts on DSLR and mirrorless lenses. The lenses are sorted over there by the instant savings discount, ranging from $500 off to $150 off. The price you see is the price you pay, no coupons, no mail-in rebates…

Still Good: Photographer’s Guide ebooks by Alexander White on sale for $8 each: Fuji X100S, various Panasonic LX*, Sony RX1/RX10/RX100 models, Etc

Alexander S. White has written a lot of camera guides for various RAWsumers/serious-compacts and a number of his ebooks are currently on sale for $8 for the Kindle! You can find them all under his name.

How useful these type of ebooks can be to you depends on many factors. For example, if you purchased every single Sony RX100 camera since they started coming out, you may have no need for the RX100 Mark V book. On the other hand, if the Sony RX-something is your first ever Sony digital camera, a camera guide can be helpful in getting you familiarized with the world of Sony.

Among the camera guides that are going for $8 as of the time of writing:

+ Fuji X100S
+ Sony RX1R II
+ Sony RX10 IV, I
+ Sony RX100 V, IV, II, I
+ Nikon P900, P610, P600, P510, B700, etc
+ Panasonic LX10/LX15, LX100, LX5, ZS70/TZ90
+ Canon S95
+ some Leica D-Lux models

There are two ways to get a feel for these camera guides before buying them:

1. you can get read Kindle sample (typically the first few pages of the book)
2. if you go to the hardback/print version of the book, it may have “Look Inside” enabled. “Look Inside” often lets you jump all over the book, and that’s the best way to get a feel for it since you can read actual content, not just the beginning

PS: you can find out at any time how much no-rush shipping digital credits you have by doing to – it’s easy to remember, no rush credits. As far as I know, there’s no way to tell ahead of time whether an ebook is eligible or not for no-rush-credits.

AdoramaPIX order deadline is Thursday 9am ET

If you are planning an AdoramaPIX order and want it to arrive in the near term, the order deadline for processing before AdoramaPIX closes for the Passover holiday is Thursday 9am eastern.
