AmazonBasics camera bags discounted (limit 3 each for on-sale items)

I’m not sure exactly when the discounts happened, but I was just looking at the best selling camera cases at Amazon, and some of their house brand “AmazonBasics” are discounted. Their Sling Backpack goes for $25 each (limit 3), while their top-selling Backpack for SLR/DSLRs goes for $30 (limit 3) and averages 4.6 out of 5 based on over 2300 customer reviews. They come in frustration-free packaging, so no fighting shrink-wraps or other packaging annoyances. Meanwhile their large DSLR gadget bag goes for $21.50 each (limit 3), while their holster goes for $16 each (limit 30).

Speaking of Amazon, if you are planning to place an order of $25 or more ($35+ if you want free shipping as a non-Prime member), you can get this eForCity leather hand grip for $4.20 each (that’s the actual price!). This is part of the Add-On program, so the shopping cart won’t allow you to buy it unless your order total is $25 or more. Regardless of Prime membership status. You can buy as many of these as you like. They average 3.5 out of 5 with nearly 600 customer reviews, so there are trade-offs.
