Another tripod sale came up while doing the Canon Lenses with Free Tripods post, the new condition Vanguard Alta Pro 264AB 100 Aluminum Tripod Kit is going for $155 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of ten units per customer. This too looks like a computer-generated price-match of 3rd-party sellers.
PS: if you haven’t seen this yet, the Wall Street Journal has an article on the High Speed Price Wars that happen behind the scenes on Amazon product pages as various sellers compete with each other and the world on pricing. [MUST READ!]
A theme is emerging for Sunday, it’s The Day of the Tripods, with yet another sale, the Induro GIT204 Grand Series 2 Stealth Carbon Fiber Tripod (4 Sections) is on sale for a limited time for $289~ with free shipping at Adorama, as one of their many April Fools-Day/Weekend Sales.
While price-checking things for the Canon Lenses with Free Tripods post, another tripod sale came up, it is the new condition Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod going for $179 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of ten units per customer. This looks like a computer-generated price-match of 3rd-party sellers offering it at that price, so its existence may depend on the 3rd-party sellers continuing their sale (or if Amazon’s price-match mechanism has its own auto-timeout feature or who-knows how Amazon and it’s Data Bots decide things).
If you are a boldly-going tripod early adopter, a new line of FotoPro brand tripods are available for pre-order at Adorama. Fourteen different options are available, with prices ranging from $60 to $299. Actually, 13 tripods and one quick-extend monopod with legs.
As of a 4/2/17 at 10:20pm ET recheck, this is sold out and cannot be ordered…
It’s unofficial Tripod Day today!

It is currently restricted to Prime members. The shipping estimate is “1 to 2 months”, so don’t get it if you need it yesterday. The “1 to 2 months” is also sometimes (but not always) an indicator that the offer is getting close to ending.
As of a 4/2/17 re-check, this is sold out from Amazon itself and cannot be ordered even…

If you are a fan of the AmazonBasics brand, the new condition 67-inch AmazonBasics is on sale for $12 by Amazon itself. Limit up to ten units per customer. It averages 4.6 out of 5 based on 580+ customer reviews and has 75+ questions answered. You can’t blame the internet for not being thorough on a $12 monopod 🙂 Free 2-day shipping for Prime members. The new-old-usual of $35+ gets free super-saver shipping for non-Prime members. This is not a lightning deal.
If you are a fan of Carbon Zinc single-use batteries, the 20-pack of Sony heavy duty carbon zinc single-use AA batteries (model SUM3NLB20A) are on sale for $4.99 per 20-pack at Amazon by Amazon itself. You can buy as many 20-packs as you like within reason (the limit is 27 20-packs per customer).
These are however an ADD-ON item, so your order total must be $25+ of products that sold and shipped by Amazon or fulfilled by Amazon. You can get to $25+ with any combination of products, eg five 20-packs. If you are close to $25 and need ideas to get over the hump, check the Elsewhere at Amazon section in the daily lightning deal round-ups. Once you clear the $25 limit, the usual free shipping terms apply, free 2-day for Prime or with a $35+ order for non-Prime (or $25+ in books).
On the other hand if you need AAA batteries, their 20-pack of AAAs (single-use, Carbon Zinc too) is going for $5.38 but it is not an Add-ON item, so if you are a Prime member, you can buy one 20-pack and still get free 2-day shipping. The shipping estimate for these is 1-2 months.
