I am not posting times in this practice post for expediency reasons.

Keep in mind, as always with the Gold Box other products may also be offered unannounced, and some items may get added/deleted. The distinction of the unannounced is that Amazon doesn’t want millions of people sitting and waiting for a high-demand item and then getting furious because only X units were available. These are what we call in the business “known unknowns” πŸ˜‰

UPDATE: under “Computers” of the Woot daily deals you can ride the P(o)NY [it seems I never tire of this joke attempt] with 256GB PNY Elite X microSDXC cards for $33 and 512GB PRO Elite for $75. Strangely they come with a 90-day Woot warranty…

And some action at the Best Buy dailies for Tuesday as well:

+ 2TB WD EasyStore external HDD for $60

+ 64GB Sandisk Nintento Switch microSD for $19

+ Bag the BAG! Case Logic Viso Slim camera backpack for $90

Sunday: Best Buy’s Nikon Z50 2-Lens Kit matched with different accessories elsewhere

The headliner of the Sunday 11/1/20 Best Buy daily deals is a Nikon Z50 two lens kit with a freebie for $1100. The two lenses are the Z 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 DX VR and the Z 50-250mm f4.5-6.3 DX VR. Thankfully Nikon gave them slightly different focal lengths from their parallel DSLR models.

The freebie is the Sunpak 12″ Bi-Color Tabletop Vlogging Kit which has a Best Buy valued price of $50 and includes a 12″ USB-powered bi-color ring-light, a flexible smartphone mount, a mini ball head (up to 4.5 lbs, aka ~2 kilos) and a bluetooth remote for iOS/Android…

BUT the $1100 price is also available at other authorized Nikon retailers with a different set of freebies…

At Adorama’s listings the freebies include a 32GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDHC, Slinger shoulder bag, a filter kit for each lens (46mm and 62mm), card wallet, cleaning kit, and a Corel software kit in your choice of PC or Mac that includes seven titles…

Optionally, you can click on the “Special Offer” bundle and add the Nikon FTZ mount adapter (Nikon F lenses to Z bodies ~ obviously) for +$47…

At B&H Photo’s listings the freebies are a 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC, a RJ shoulder bag, a 62mm UV filter (with a limited 10 year warranty) and a Zeiss-branded lens care kit…

Fascinating how the two top camera makers managed to have four different iLC camera systems each πŸ™‚
