Tuesday: Two 32GB Sandisk Ultra microSD cards for $7 [Prime] or $12

Amazon’s “Prime Day” [which is really “Prime Month” ~ sprawling like the Black Friday and Christmas holiday sales do] expands to Woot as well, where one of their Tuesday 7/9/19 deals of the day is the 2-pack of 32GB Sandisk Ultra microSD cards (UHS-I, C10, adapter) going for $12 per 2-pack…

BUT if you are a Prime member and your Woot account is connected to your Amazon Prime account (a one-time thing), then the price will automatically drop to $7 in the shopping cart. Not bad for $3.50 for a 32GB name-brand microSD card 🙂

The offer is limited one 2-pack per customer. Per the listing, the cards get a 90-day Woot warranty. Not sure why there’s no Sandisk warranty. Mayhaps it’s the price or Amazon sourced them from elsewhere in order to offer them at this low price?

Tuesday: Rokinon 24mm f2.8 Auto Focus (Sony E) for $269

If you are Starbucks Rewards member, Tuesday is Double Stars day, but of more on-topic interest, Adorama is running a snapshot / daily-deal with a 24 hour countdown on the new condition Rokinon 24mm f2.8 Auto Focus lens for the Sony E system for $269 with free US shipping. On the same listing you will also find options with free Mac or PC software BUT those are selling at the regular price of $349, not the sale price of $269.

The Creative LIVE website is running another limited time offer (LTO), you get 60% off most classes offered at Creative LIVE. The sale price is what you see on the website ~ there’s no coupon to enter. If you don’t see a 60% off discount, then it means the LTO expired…

KEH Sell Your Own Gear Bonus 5% to 10% with coupon

Do you have camera gear to sell without hassle and don’t want to deal with eBay and Classifieds and haggling with the local photographer groups?

If so, until July 14 in 2019, KEH Camera is offering you a 5% bonus on the transaction using promo code MW7A during the sell-your-gear checkout process. So for example if KEH pays $100 for a “Used – Like New” Fictitious 50mm f0.01 lens, using the coupon code will get you an extra $5, so $105 instead of $100.

But wait, there’s more! If the gear you are selling is in the KEH Most Wanted List, using coupon code MW7A as well, you will receive a 10% bonus instead of a 5% bonus. So if the aforementioned Fictitious 50mm f0.01 lens is a “KEH Most Wanted”, the coupon will get you a $10 bonus and a $110 total instead of $100 (no bonus) and $105 (5% bonus).

During the sell-your-gear checkout process KEH will prepare printing labels for you, so you can box your items and take them to the appropriate place (eg UPS stores) or have them pick them up ~ depending on how your local and regional delivery services are doing things…

A total of 500 items are currently in the “Most Wanted List” and you can filter them by brand or you can search for them using the search-box over there, or you can just page-down on the list like the good old days of text-based internet 🙂
