And among the Amazon USA Gold Box deals of the day [not a lighting deal] there’s this 10″ Selfie Ring Light with 50″ Extendable Tripod Stand & Flexible Phone Holder offered for around $36.50 with free US shipping. The brand is, I think [or it’s the store name] “UBeesize”. Not that it really matters 🙂 Regardless, as of the time of writing it averages 4.3 out of 5 based on over 10,000 customer ratings and it has 400+ answered questions, and it has the coveted “Amazon Choice” algorithmically-produced (I think) black tag…

Speaking of e-readers, among the Sunday Kindle Daily Deals there’s Asimov’s “Foundation” and “Ready Player One” [“Two” is coming because everything eventually gets a sequel] for $3 each…

UPDATE: in other deal du jour action, at the Best Buy offers you can haz the 512GB Sandisk Extreme microSDXC (A2, U3, V30, UHS-I, Z5, Y65, N-I-34, RR44, etc) for $120 with the usual Shutterfly freebie/coupon…

Among the Woot dailies they have the Essential 360 camera (with its matching case) going for $140 [under “Electronics”] {the Essential was a flash-in-the-pan Android phone}, while at “Computers” they have 12.5″ Mobile Pixels portable monitors for $200… I am a big fan of ChromeBooks [despite Google’s data-creepiness] but the offer under “Clearance” for $150 is a BAD ONE!. It’s an old refurbished 11.6″ Samsung Chromebook with 2GB RAM, no touchscreen, 16GB on-board storage, old Exynos 5250 processor, ports on the back instead of the sides, no more OS updates [platform expired already in 2018]. This was my first Chromebook purchased *GASP* eight years ago, but despite the emotional attachment (?!?!?!?!) it’s a big NO for 2020 [there are so many newer options out there!].

UPDATE #2: the current Adorama daily deal (changes Thursday 10am ET) is the Green Extreme CB12 Compact Battery Pack for Sony Flashes offered for $20 with free US shipping….

But those USB 2.0 drives may be handy considering the low price if you are giving them to people for free, eg with their pictures on them 🙂

Other storage action:

+ 12TB WD EasyStore external USB 3.0 for $190 at the Best Buy dailies

+ 256GB TeamGroup microSD for $26 at NewEgg dailies

+ this is a longer-running sale, not a daily deal; up to six 100-packs per customer
+ just so it’s clear, this is (what the western world) calls Black Tea. The Red is part of the Taylors of Harrogate branding; although it just coincides in this case with (what Chinese call) Red Tea [hong]. The term Black tea in chinese tea is reserved for Dark Teas (Heicha, Puerh, etc)

10% Back on select Sony Cameras and Lenses when paying with the B&H PayBoo card

The B&H PayBoo card is B&H’s online store credit card that has a special benefit. If you online-shop from a state that charges sales tax on online purchases, and you pay for the B&H purchase with the PayBoo store card, you get an instant discount/credit on the PayBoo card that is equal of the sales tax you would have paid. In other words, B&H pays the sales tax for you. You can check whether your state is eligible by clicking on the “Check Savings” links over there. It opens up, asks for your zipcode and tells you the percentage. Obviously if you live in a state without a sales tax, you won’t get anything discounted. The card is from Symphony Bank. It is only a store card that can be used at B&H, not a general-use VISA/Mastercard/etc…

And now to the actual deal running until August 25 in 2020. In addition to the aforementioned sales-tax credit, you will get an additional 10% back on your card with the purchase of select Sony Cameras and Lenses that you see listed over there. They include A-series full-frames, a-series APS-C cameras, f2.8 PRO zooms, bright primes and various other lenses and bundles…

To keep the example simple, I am using round numbers and a fictional state. Let’s say you live in the great state of Denial, famous for its beautiful reflective lakes and its wholesome gentle and thrifty people, so they charge a 1% sales tax. You want to buy a Sony a6400 kit that costs $998. And you pay for your purchase in whole with the B&H PayBoo card.

You will be charged $998 [the camera price] plus 1% sales tax [$9.98] but the PayBoo card will automatically credit your account for $9.98, making your out of pocket $998. And because you are buying a camera participating in this Sony promotion, you will get a separate 10% credit [10% of $998 = $99.8] on your PayBoo B&H card…

I hope this example is actually not making things more confusing 🙂
