Nikon Official Camera Strap for Nikon D850 for $9 + S&H

Today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker finds the used Sony a7r III kits to have sold out at B&H Photo. Kudos to B&H for selling them are normal used prices instead of hiking the prices above the starting price.

Rakuten Coupon: $10 off $50+ (ends Tue PM)

Good until Tuesday at 11:59pm pacific time, the Rakuten website is offering $10 off purchases of $50+ with coupon code GET10 entered over there. Some exclusions and restrictions apply as usual. You can find those in the fineprint at the bottom of the aforelinked page.

Strategically this is good for items that have the same prices everywhere, or rarely go on sale. A number of 3rd-party camera deals also sell on Rakuten, so you are not limited to what they have on their own. Note also that Rakuten has both authorized and unauthorized 3rd-party sellers offering camera gear on their website, so be sure to research an unfamiliar seller before buying!

15% off purchases of $50+ with eBay coupon (includes Beach, Dell, and many more)

Coupons and rewards are one of eBay’s current favorite ways to offer temptations to potential buyers. And now we have another eBay coupon promotion. Coupon code PMEMDAY gets you 15% off purchase of items priced $50+ from a long list of eligible eBay sellers including Anker, aSavings (Focus Camera alternate name), Beach Camera (parent company of BuyDig), Daily Steals, Cuisinart (shiny kitchen appliances are a good test for difficult shooting/lightning situations?), Dell, eBags, Guess Outlet, Overstock, Reebok, Northwest Outdoors, Tech Rabbit, Timex, VM Innovations, Wilson Leather, and many more!

When you use the left sidebar over there to drill further down in the various categories, there are 450+ camera and photo items, but there are various others in other sub-categories and six degrees of separation and such.

This coupon offer expires on Friday May 25 in 2018 at 11:59pm pacific time.

You can combine this offer with the eBay Bonus Bucks promotion if you are eligible for that one and while they run in parallel until Tuesday night…

Imported Sony a7R III body w/1-YR Seller W for $2770

The new condition a7R III body only goes for $3200 at authorized Sony USA dealers which offer some freebies, eg $64 promotional rewards at B&H Photo or you can get various free accessories and software at Adorama

But if you are comfortable with imported/grey-market that come with a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Sony USA), then to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Department Store NYC” is offering it in imported grey-market condition for $2700 with free shipping and a 1-year seller warranty from Dept Store NYC (not Sony). Up to three per customer at the sale price.

IF you are eligible for the limited time eBay Bucks bonus promotion, you can get $100 eBay Bucks on the purchase. The promotion has limits, so you don’t get unlimited 8%.

Monday: 25% off orders of $300+ at Monoprice

For Monday in the pacific time zone, coupon code 25MON gets you 25% off eligible items with a total of $300+ at the Monoprice website. Exclusions and restrictions apply but you can test the coupon and get a S&H estimate (free shipping is a luxury at Monoprice) without creating an account or logging in.

$5 off purchase of two books at B&N online

Good until Wednesday at 11:59pm pacific, coupon code BOOKISH gets you $5 off the purchase of TWO printed books at the Barnes & Noble website. Exclusions apply to the coupon as usual. Some product types (ebooks, LEGOs, Nooks, gift cards, etc) are excluded from general purpose couponization.

YMMV eBay 8% to 10% eBay Bucks Rewards on $50+

Good until Tuesday 5/22/18 at 11:59pm pacific… This is YMMV as usual! The offer is being sent out via email and eBay messages, it is a new 8% eBay Bucks promotion, or 10% if you shop with the official eBay apps. This offer has a minimum purchase of $50+ to earn the bonus. Otherwise you earn the standard eBay bucks percentage. You must manually activate it before you earn the extra eBay Bucks. This has no minimum purchase amount. I do not know if every eBay Bucks member gets these offers or the eBay computers do their “targeting thing” (eg nudge people who haven’t shopped in a while to shop, and so forth).

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 here, including the free Google Home Mini w/$150+ orders promotion running until 5/29/18.

As usual, there are limits to how much you can earn. You can earn $100 maximum for an individual transaction, and a maximum of $500 from multiple purchases made during this promotional period.

Meh brings back $5/month free shipping membership

As mentioned in the main text of today’s deal at Meh.com, Meh is bringing back their free shipping membership plan, let’s call it version 2.0. You pay $5 per month, and you can cancel it at any time. For any month you are a paying member, you get free shipping at Meh and its other sister shopping sites (Morningsave, Casemates, Checkout.org and any others they may come up with in the future).

Now shipping: Nokia 6.1 Android Smartphone (ZEISS Optics) w/free Photo Kit for $269

If you are a Nokia + Zeiss shipper (ha!), the brand new Nokia 6.1 factory-unlocked Android smartphone with Zeiss optics is now in-stock and shipping for $269 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a free “B&H Photo Video Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones” [mount, LED light, flexible tripod] automatically included by B&H.

This runs Android 8.0, with 3GB RAM [probably the minimum these days for Android], 32GB on-board, microSD storage, GSM, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C connector [but not USB 3.x features],

One of the things Nokia is promising with their Android phone line-up is speedy and steady OS and security updates ~ after all the phone is part of Android One. It is easier to promise this when your phone line-up consists of single-figures in individual models, we’ll see how it plays out in the next couple of years ~ after all, most phone manufacturers sound/sounded very optimistic in delivering updates at announcement time, but their post-release records are spotty and patchy [pun intended?]. But they have already delivered multiple updates for their first generation Android phones…

PS: the same price is offered at amazon.com but without a free photo-video accessories kit…
