20% off UGLY and AS-IS gear with KEH Camera coupon [ends Thur PM]

If you are not a perfectionist and don’t object to used camera gear in “UGLY” condition and/or if you are fine with limitations and imperfections for gear in “AS IS” condition, KEH Camera is back with a new coupon promotion! Using coupon code GAR10A you get 20% off in camera gear in “AS IS” and “UGLY” conditions. Leica products are excluded.

Note that these two conditions do NOT get a 180-day warranty. Check the individual listings for the limitations and potential issues for products in this condition. As usual, you can test the coupon in their shopping cart without the need of logging-in or creating an account.

The promotion ends on Thursday 10/31/19 at 11:59pm ET and it is indeed a scary proposition for …perfectionists πŸ™‚

UPDATE: I haven’t tested every single item, but of the ones I have tested, the limit is two per customer per item at the sale price…

UPDATE #2: there’s also a tech sale at the Amazon Germany Gold Box, lots of great prices on Logitech mice and keyboards since they are typically more expensive in Europe than the US. Note that the most of the keyboards are using the QWERTZ formation, not the “normal” QWERTY. Thankfully the mice don’t have any QWERTZ vs QWERTY confusion πŸ™‚

Depending on your viewport/screen, the free items may not be very visible. Look for the tiny text that says “Includes Free”. Also included is a 3-month prepaid Mint Mobile SIM card that’s why you may see “2 items ($160.00 value)” instead of just the $100 B&H e-gift card.

Prices for the Pixel 4 start at $799 (64GB) and jump to $899 for the 128GB option.

Prices for the Pixel 4 XL start at $899 (64GB) and jump to $999 for the 128GB option.

Sale ends on Wednesday at 3am ET or earlier if sold out.

The sale price is good for the black or the silver color scheme. Not sure if the limit three is per color or total.

Of course there are many and more options in the world of M43rds these days, especially if you factor in used and refurbished and grey-market options in the mix ~ that’s a fun headache to have πŸ™‚

If you pay with an Amazon store card or the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, you will get a 5% statement credit (depending on whatever promotion your card is on).

If you don’t have either of those cards, pay attention to the Amazon product page and the promotional mini-banners up top. They usually run either 0% financing promotions (usually for the store card) or $XX off for the Chase VISA card. I’m currently seeing a $60 off promotion on the Chase VISA card but the amount may vary depending on the time of the day you check, and who knows what other factors the Amazon AI Price Bots use to decide what to offer to who(m) and when…

DiscountMags Bundle Promo: 3 Magazines for $12 total per year

You can individually select for each magazine whether it’s a renewal or a new subscription but the duration of the subscription (1 or 2 or 3 years) is determined for all magazines in the bundle ~ because the price is for the bundle, not the individual magazines.

For gift purchases, simply place a separate order if you don’t find any other option or way to do so during the checkout process…

Wedn: Sony Cybershot W800 P&S camera (5x optical) for $50

Among the Hump Day Woot Electronics deals of the day is a sale on the new condition Sony Cybershot W800 P&S digital camera (20mp 1/2.3″ CCD, 5x optical zoom (26-130mm eq), Lion, 2.7″ LSD, microSD and MS Duo, etc) in the black color scheme going for $50 with free shipping for Prime members [you have to connect your Woot-Prime accounts ~ a one-time action] or $6 flat for the calendar day for non-members. The camera comes with a 90-day Woot warranty and you can buy up to ten per customer.

That’s $10 per optical zoom unit for those buying The Costco Way πŸ˜‰

The aforementioned sale includes various other assorted electronics including the new condition Force1 U45WF Wi-Fi Camera Drone for $70, a Phantom 2 controller for $40, a couple of Rokus, a couple of gaming accessories, and more. The reason there are multiple items in a daily deal is because sometimes Woot groups together a “Plus” sale and offers it as a daily deal. I don’t know if the Plus sale will continue after the daily deal expires or it will disband or the items will join other sales and such…

If you missed yesterday’s $80 Chromebook, fear not! Woot Computers comes to the rescue with another one, this one is actually $79, it is the refurbished Dell Chromebook 11-3120 Notebook with the Intel N2840 2.16GHz Dual-Core processor, 4GB DDR3 [important these days], 16GB eMMC of on-board storage, 802.11ac, Bluetooth, etc. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. Limit up to ten per customer. Of interest if there’s rough usage for the laptop as it is a MIL-STD model.

IMPORTANT: now that Chromebooks have been around for quite a few years, a new twist/risk is raising it’s semi-ugly head. Google does not offer automated OS updates for platforms that are over 6.5 years old. Note that the clock starts ticking on the platform, not the individual laptop. So the clock for this device began ticking when the first Intel N2840 Chromebook came out. This particular model will get auto-updates until June 2020. Details at 11 or more conveniently at the Google Support page for ChromeOS devices πŸ™‚

UPDATE: while we are on the topic of daily deals, one of the Amazon Gold Box deals of the day is yet another Anker sale featuring various charging products: powerbanks, cables, car and wall and wireless chargers…
