According to the sneak peek weekly ad posted on the Staples website, for the shopping week of June 5-11 in 2016 (Sunday AM until Saturday PM), they will have a 50% off sale on HP, Epson and Canon photo papers. The sale price is off the list price most likely, so YMMV as to how good it might be compared to the rest of the market. Particularly of interest if you have Staples Rewards or Store Credit or Gift Cards you want to spend. I don’t know if the sale will be online as well as the Weekly Ad covers their stores mostly.
As of 6/3/16 recheck, this eBay listing ended with 283 units sold…

Just updated the Stock Status Tracking page. If you are looking for the Canon 1D X Mark II body only CFAST KIT (with CFAST card and card reader), it is now in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $6000 at Amazon by Amazon itself… On the Pentax K-1 front, one 3rd-party seller is offering it with a limited available premium, for $2000 instead of $1800, Portable Guy on Amazon…
We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and we have good news for Nikon and Canon shooters, both Nikon D500 and both Nikon D5 and both Canon 1D X II kits are currently in-stock at their starting flagship prices… Meanwhile the Pentax K-1 remains in back-order/pre-order status, for example the B&H Photo estimate is July 2016. Well, we K-waited for 10+ years, what’s a few more weeks [sea salt on the open wound!]…
Good news for people who like good in-stock news. We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and we have two in-stock alerts!
The Canon 1D X II CFAST Kit is now in-stock for $6000 at B&H Photo, the same price as the body only without the CFAST Kit (card and reader).
The Pentax K-1 body only continues to not be in-stock.
I just updated the Stock Status tracking page and as of this update, these cameras are in-stock at their standard prices at at least one major retailer: Nikon D500 w/16-50, Nikon D5 (both), Canon 1D X II Body Only (CFast bundle). The CFast bundle currently goes for the same price as the standard 1D X II body-only.

They offer the Canon M3 with the 18-55mm lens and EF-EOS M lens mount adapter for $599 with free expedited shipping. But you are not done yet. Expand the yellow “Special Offer” segment.

Just press the blue “Add to Bundle” button and then below it the green “Add Bundle to Cart” and proceed as usual.
Annotated screenshot crop below if you are not familiar with the layout of their website:
NOTE!!!: this is a YMMV promotion. I have no way of knowing how many people are eligible.
If you have an Amazon Chase VISA credit card and you are eligible for this promotion (detailed post explains the promotion ~ I don’t want to repeat the whole post) and logged on to your eligible Amazon account, there is a super hot deal [you will only see the offer if you are eligible] for the Canon 80D with 18-135mm kit [this is the camera’s page, everyone will see this].
The standard Amazon price is $1600. You add the Canon 80D with 18-135mm kit to the shopping cart, make sure your payment method is the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, and enter coupon code ARC20SPRING there. The price will drop by 20% in the right sidebar of the Amazon Checkout page, making it $1279~ with free shipping. This has to be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not 3rd-party sellers.
If it doesn’t, it means the promotion is not working, either because you are not eligible or you are using a different payment method or Amazon is not the actual seller or for other reason(s) that I am not aware of.
If all is well, it should look like this:
Again, please note this is a YMMV type of an offer, I have no way of testing this at a grand scale. I tested with an account with the Chase VISA card, one without it, and not being logged on to Amazon.
IF you tried this and it worked or didn’t please let us know in the comments!
YMMV Amazon Chase VISA cardholders: Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 for $400 OR T5 w/18-55 for $320 [or both for $720]
NOTE!!!: this is a YMMV promotion!
If you have an Amazon Chase VISA credit card and you are eligible for this promotion (detailed post explains the promotion), there is a super hot deal [you will only see the offer if you are eligible] that will get you the:
To get that:
+ must be eligible for the promotion
+ you have to pay with the Amazon Chase VISA credit card
+ then enter coupon code ARC20SPRING in the shopping cart (20% off the current price)
+ camera must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself (not 3rd-party sellers)
If all is well, you will see this at the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page. In this example below, both D-Rebel T5 and T6 kits are in the shopping cart. You can buy either one or both or any other combination of eligible items apparently:
To the Chaos and Disorder that is the eBay Deals we return, where eBay seller “Electronics Valley” (99.6%, ships from New Jersey) is offering new condition imported grey-market Canon 80D body only with a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Canon USA) for $900 with free shipping with a limit of five units per customer.
So you are trading off $300 for the Canon USA warranty. It’s a numbers and risk tolerance type of a decision. Also a sleep better at night type of a decision 🙂 The new condition from authorized dealers goes for $1200 with free accessories.
