Cyber Monday is here!

Yes, Cyber Monday is officially here, although, it’s really just one giant Friday to Monday Black Cyber weekend! Let’s take a look at some of the retailers participating:

+ B&H Photo Cyber Monday with all kinds of offers, scroll-down in an ever-scroll format or filter by categories and brands

+ Adorama Cyber Monday in a cool blue website color-scheme, broken down by various categories and such

+ Amazon Cyber Monday, it’s like the regular Gold Box but Cyber-Monday’ed. Use the usual filters on the left-hand side to narrow things down to product categories of interest, eg Camera and Photo
+ PRO-TIP: when you are in the Cyber Monday Gold Box, the Amazon search box up at the top of their page is pre-filtered to search for the Cyber Monday deals specifically (you can adjust it as you please though to search sitewide, or within specific product categories)

+ NewEGG Cyber Monday – back in our time kids, the NewEgg website would always crash at the Black Friday reveals. Nowadays, both the web servers and the customers have grown up 😉

+ 1-Year prepaid Netflix-style CreativeLIVE subscription for $99 after coupon code CYBERSAVE
+ or $20 off class orders of $40+ with coupon CYBER20

+ sales and coupons at 6 Dollar Shirts, I bought many times from them before, and they have stood the test of time, considering/despite the $6+ price 🙂

+ Woot sale-a-brates with a “best of woot” sale and cyber week deals

+ Best Buy sale-a-brates with a “Cyber Monday is Here” theme 🙂

Black Friday officially dawns at Amazon, NewEgg, Etc

Black Friday is here and in the pacific time zone, and pretty soon in Hawai’iii too, so more websites are officially and formally “dressing up” their websites in Black Friday gear!

More specifically, the NewEgg website is now a Black Friday crash test for your browser and phone and tablet and laptop. Yes, it’s that bad 🙂 Save any open files before going there 🙂

Amazon too has updated their Black Friday page, which looks pretty much like a special edition of their usual Gold Box 🙂 Another browser crashing test! Speaking of which, there’s another drop of 230+ Kindle ebooks on offer. Because reading is FUN-da-MENTAL!

Already in Black Friday mode are the websites of B&H Photo and Adorama and
Monoprice and KEH Camera and many and more…

On a blog-related note, I have temporarily increased the number of posts that show on the home page from 30 to 50, so you can see all the recently-posted deals on a single page, so you don’t have to navigate 2nd and 3rd pages. It may slow down access a bit but probably not ~ unless for some strange reason this blog goes viral with the web or the forums or the search engines (unlikely LOL).

And one last thing, which I should have mentioned at the start of Black Friday week (yes, I’ve become very rusty), we have a FREE Full-Text RSS Feed with Feedburner if you want to keep up with the offers using your favorite RSS readers and such. If we had Patreon, this would have been a great Patreon reward tier, but back in our time, we didn’t have such things on the internets, we just had text-based browsers and dial-up 🙂

Amazon launches Black Friday sales too

Amazon too has pushed out their Black Friday offers using their usual Gold Box format. The sale includes 270+ Kindle eBooks including the 4th book in Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive. He writes book at a crazy 20fps speed 😉

Speaking of Amazon, which is usually reserved in allowing outside payment options, they are now accepting Venmo, part of the PayPal family!

Costco and Groupon launch their Black Fridays

If you are a Costco member (I am not, so I do not have full visibility), they too have launched their online Black Friday specials. It pains me to say, no free food sampling stations on their website – unless only members can see them 😉

For post-economy sake, we include this here, we have the launch of the Groupon Black Friday sales. Yes, Groupon managed to survive while other more grounded retailers haven’t 🙂 [OOOPS, we’re not supposed to make snarky comments on Thanksgiving Day according to Miss Manners]

Black Friday at NEWEGG!

It’s Black Friday time at the NewEGG website as well with a variety of tech products and discounts. You can use the various filters on their website to narrow it down to the products and brands of interest. Way too many to list here individually 🙂

Adorama adds more to their Black Friday sale

Adorama has added more offers to their Black Friday is ON sale. Too many to list here individually, but you can use the various categories and sub-categories and such to filter them through by your area(s) of interest…

Black Friday arrives at Monoprice

The party is already in progress at the Monoprice Black Friday sale that features a number of their home-made monitors (Zero-G and Dark Matter lines), Monolith audio, cables, charging gear, and the usual assortment of the techie gear they specialize in.

As part of the promotions, coupon code WM20 gets you 20% off Wall Mounts – there’s a soccer world cup in progress after all.

Separately they have a promotion that gets you December coupons if you make qualifying purchase over preset amounts.

B&H launches Black Friday pricing on Cameras and Lenses

The party has began! B&H Photo has launched Black Friday pricing on various cameras and lenses from most of the major manufacturers including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonica, Zeiss Zeiss Baby, Shiguma, Tammy “Tamron” Wynette, Voigtlander, Rokinon, etc… No Leica however 🙂

Too many to list here individually, more on these later on as I start digesting things and getting into Black Friday mode 🙂

PS: as with all previous years, B&H goes early/earlier with their Black Friday, because every week they are closed on the Sabbath, which is Friday PM to Saturday PM. So plan your purchases accordingly!

We join this in progress, Adorama is currently running a 48 Hour Flash Sale featuring products from all the major product categories they carry including photography, computers, gaming, lighting and studio gear, drones and binos, A/V and music, and such. Too many items to list here individually…

UPDATE: things are fairly quiet camera/photo-wise at this current iteration of the Adorama daily deals (until Thursday at 10am ET) so I’m appending them to this post instead of creating a brand new one:

Adorama has launched their pre-Labor-Day Labor Day sale with a total of 1546 options available as part of this sale. The items you see are sorted by “Popular Results”, but you can filter them by many different ways using the options and filters at the aforelinked page…

15% off with Monoprice coupon (near site-wide)

For a limited time, the Monoprice website is having a Back to School sale with 15% off thanks to coupon code (wait for it) APLUS (that’s the grade 1% of the students get? mayhaps not a smart coupon code?). The usual terms, conditions, restrictions and exclusions apply.

Elsewhere in sales, the REI Outlet is having a “handpicked gear sale” running until 8/15/22 or earlier if sold out.

Earn $10 Amazon Credit with Prime Activities

If you are planning to make an Amazon Prime purchase by Wednesday 7/13/22 at 11:59pm pacific time, AND you are a Prime member (paying or free trial), you can easily earn a $10 Amazon store credit thanks to this StampCard promotion.

The four things you have to do to earn the $10 store credit are:

  • make a Prime-eligible purchase
  • stream a Prime video
  • listen to a song with Prime Music
  • borrow an ebook on Prime Reading

The only thing that costs money is the money you pay to make the Prime-eligible purcahse. The other three items are Prime Benefits. They are basically adding them to the Stampcard to encourage more Prime members to try out the other Prime benefits.

The aforelinked page has a progress bar showing you which ones of the steps you have completed.

PS: if you are not a Prime member, first start a 30-day free trial and then take the steps to earn the $10 store credit…

Prime Dayz are Coming – start a FREE Trial

The big dayz are almost upon us! Prime Dayz officially start on Tuesday July 12 in 2022 at 12:01am pacific time and run for 48 hours until Wednesday July 13 at 11:59pm pacific time!

If you are already a Prime member, you can participate in all the offers.

If you are not a Prime member, you can still participate in the offers by starting a FREE 30-DAY TRIAL and be eligible for all the offers and Prime benefits during your free trial.

If you previously had a 30-day free trial, the Amazon AI computer system will decide if you are eligible for another one for your account. It will tell you so.

Alternately if you don’t want to prepay for a 1-year subscription, and you are not eligible for a 30-day free trial, you can start a month-to-month subscription and keep it only for as long as you need it, eg one month so you can participate in the Prime Deals or to watch the new half-a-billion Lord of the Rings TV show…

UPDATE: if you are a student at an eligible institution, you can get a FREE 6-month Prime Student trial, and then you can optionally stay one for a 50% off a prepaid 1-year Prime membership ($69 per year). You are also eligible for three Prime Student benefits, Showtime $1/month for a year, Amazon Music Unlimited for $1/month, and 6-months of free Linked In Premium…

B&H OPTIC 2022 Special Offers

To sale-a-brate the OPTIC 2022 trade-show, B&H Photo is also running in parallel OPTIC 2022 special offers with the usual assortment of camera and photo and electronics and such.

Too many to list here individually, but if time permits, I may highlight some of them offers later on…

Monoprice’s The Big Overstock sale

If you are a fan of the Monoprice website and house-branded products, they are having at the moment The Big Overstock sale featuring all kinds of cables for all occasions, along with various tech and audio and home/hobby products… So many cables, so little time!

More on this later on, on a time-permitting basis…

New NewEGG page: Lowest Price in 30 Days

If you are a fan of NewEgg or looking for deals in general (with a technology focus), NewEgg has recently launched (or I just now found out about it LOL) a new page of offerings, Lowest Price in 30 Days. As the name suggests, these are products that currently have their lowest price in the last 30 days according to the NewEgg computers/humans/hybrids…

NOTE: as usual, when shopping at open websites like NewEgg, eBay, Amazon and the like, where multiple marketplace sellers are allowed to sell the same product, make sure you check who the actual seller of a product is, and for products where the manufacturer warranty matters, make sure they are an authorized dealer…

Wedn (ends 10pm CT): Woot-OFF!

It’s been a while since I saw one of these, if you miss the retro-glamo(ur) excitement of a Woot-OFF, we have good news for you, running now until 10pm central time on 3/30/22 there is a Woot Sellout/Clearance Woot-OFF. Only this sub-Woot is having a Woot-OFF.

The other sub-Woots have their usual daily deals, including scratch and dent Samsung Galaxy smartphones ($100 to $950) under “Electronics” and a refurbished 17-inch 12GB RAM HP laptop for $439…

Amazon Pickup Orders: $10 off coupon w/$20+ orders

If you live in an area that has Amazon pickup points (self-service lockers, counters, etc), for the promotional period from 3/2/22 to 4/27/22, coupon code PICKUP10OFF gets you $10 off an order of $20+. The offer is good for products sold and shipped by Amazon itself. Fulfilled by Amazon and 3rd-party sellers are NOT eligible for this promotion.

Digital products are obviously not eligible, since you don’t pick them up at self-service lockers 🙂

The offer may be targeted (I have no way to knowing, it just showed it to me on an promotional banner while I was on their website). The offer has a limited number of redemptions. YMMV as always…

If you haven’t tried the self-service lockers, fear not, they work real well. I tried them inside 711s, Staples and Whole Foods without issue through the years…

Staples coupon: $20 off a $50+ order

The Staples website is offering until 12/23/21 coupon code HOLIDAYGIFTS20 that gets you $20 off an order of $50+. Terms, conditions, restrictions, etc apply as usual…

20% off One Outlet Item for REI Members

If you are an REI member (you only pay for membership once, not an annual subscription), until 12/15/21, coupon code OUTLETWARM gets you 20% off one REI Outlet item. Terms, conditions and details over there…

Cyber Monday offers launch at B&H and Adorama

Cyber Monday is here and the CM offers have launched at B&H Photo and also at Adorama

As time goes by, I will be digesting these and posting select offers (as per usual). In the meantime, if you are suffering from Deal Information Overload (DIO, no, not Ronny James), Adorama has your back, they have posted their Top 100 Cyber Monday deals

25% off on Rentals lasting 5+ days

Coupon code CYBERMONDAY2021 gets you 25% off RENTAL orders from Borrow Lenses that run for AT LEAST five days. Rental orders of $149+ get free standard shipping. You can use the coupon code for multiple orders during this promotion.

You must place the rental orders by 11/30/21 at 11:59pm pacific time. The actual rental orders can be scheduled for as late as January 31 in 2022. Yes, we have to prepare to be writing 2022 instead of 2021 🙂

BL offers no-cost cancellations up to a day before the rental ships.

25% off Purchases of Used Gear at BL

If you like to purchase USED gear, coupon code BLACKFRIDAY2021 gets you 25% off purchases there at Borrow Lenses. As you can expect, most of these are used gear that was previously used in rentals. Coupon works until 12/8/21 at 11:59pm pacific or while supplies last…

Speaking of used camera gear, if you missed our earlier post, KEH Camera is offering 10% off and 365-day warranties on many (but not all) items they offer. Check the aforelinked post for all the details…

Adorama launches Top 100 Black Friday Deals

If you are drowning in Black Friday information overload, Adorama has your back. They have just now published their Top 100 deals for Black Friday 2021, so you can peruse without the risk of drowning in a sea within a sea of deals 🙂

NewEgg launches their Black Fwidae too

NewEgg is in the game too, they have launched their Black Friday specials as well. As usual you can filter them by various product categories and sub-categories on their website… Time-permitting I will digest these later on…

Black Friday arrives at Best Buy as well

Black Friday has also arrived at the Best Buy website which includes a dedicated “Apple Shopping Event”… Bubbles with the various product categories are shown, and yes, there is one for Cameras and such

Black Friday at KEH Camera: 10% off many items! {also 365-day warranty instead of 180-day}

Black Friday has arrived at KEH Camera with a 10% off coupon code BF21A that covers many items sold on their website EXCEPT:

+ EXCLUDED items below:
+ NEW condition
+ USED Like New
+ USED Like New Minus
+ Leica-branded products
+ EXCLUDED items above

OR you can easily test their coupon in their shopping cart and see whether it works or not…

The offer expires on Cyber Monday 11/29/21 at 11:59pm ET…

Another benefit of KEH Camera during the holiday shopping season: typical 180-day warranty is automagically upgraded to a 365-day warranty on items purchased until 12/31/21. There’s no action/coupon needed for this, it happens automagically based on the purchase date…

The warranty extension offer is only for items that were previously eligible for the 180-day warranty. For example products in the “AS IS” condition are not eligible for any warranty…

When you consider the price of a warranty for used items, and combined with the 10% off coupon, this can get you a good deal.

B&H and Adorama launch Black Fridays

And so it begins! Both Adorama and B&H Photo have launched their Black Friday pages and deals…

More details as I start digesting them…

Hide your e-wallets, the deals are e-coming!

The eBay website is offering a Black Friday coupon, 20% off on select product categories using coupon code PINBF2021 in their shopping cart. Maximum discount $50 using this coupon.

Better yet, the coupon can be used up to FIVE times per eBAY account until 12/10/21

You can see all eligible categories and such at the offer’s Terms and Conditions

B&H and Adorama launch Early Black Friday offerings

We are about ten days away from Black Friday and as it is often the case, the early Black Friday deals parade is upon us!

Both Adorama and B&H Photo have launched their early specials.

As of the time of writing there are 673 offers at Adorama. B&H Photo does not have an offer counter… Regardless, they are too many to list here individually…

Singles Day is here at Aliexpress [UPDATED]

UPDATE: among the Thursday NewEGG dailies there’s $25 off the Ryzen 7-5800X, $10 XBox Gold Live, WD, 256GB Team flash drive, chargers, microSDXC, RAM, and lots more!

If you like books but you are not fond of Amazon, the Barnes & Noble website is offering $20 off with purchases of $60+ using coupon code SAVE20 until 11/15/21 at 3am ET. Exclusions apply… Meanwhile for 11/11 only, at B&N B&M cafes, Veterans and Active Military can get a free tall coffee or tea drink. The offer says “while supplies last” which I’m not sure what it means in this case…

AliExpress teases official offers for Singles Day

The Western-facing persona of Aliexpress is teasing their singles day offers for 11/11. These will go live at 12:01am pacific time on 11/11.

But if you are familiar with shopping from the Chinese version of Aliexpress, China is 13 hours ahead of New York time (Eastern time), so their festivities will begin earlier.

As with all big shopping holidays (eg Black Friday), the sales expand temporally in both directions, so basically November is a Singles Black Friday Cyber Monday month 😉

eBay Bucks Changes: 1% Base Tier goes away

If you are participating in the eBay Bucks rewards program, eBay is making changes to the program starting April 1st in 2021. More specifically, you will no longer earn the base 1% on qualifying purchases. The program however is not shutting down. It will continue by offering “Bonus Bucks” promotions. One silver lining of the changes, rewards earned on April 1 in 2021 (and later) will be valid for 12 months…

More details at the updated eBay Help pages

Amazon Outlet Sale has 75 C&P items

Not to be confused with Amazon Warehouse Deals which sells used items, Amazon has an Outlet store which sells new condition overstock items. As of the time of writing they have nearly 9000 items. You can use the left-hand side categories over there to filter them by areas of interest.

They have 75 items under the Camera & Photo Outlet of the C&P (= Camera & Photo) accessory kind. No cameras, no lenses. Except for a couple of generic kids cameras that is.

Of related interest is the Electronics Outlet with over 830 items as of the time of writing…

These are not daily deals. They are on-going overstock outlet offerings which have their own schedule (or mayhaps determined by the Amazon AI Price Bots, who knows…)

Deal History: List of all 100+ Tuesday Woot-Off deals (for Reference Only)

Now this paragraph is of historic interest. The Tuesday Woot-OFF is OVER. But during the Woot-off on Tuesday there were some technical difficulties. To counter that, for a few hours, Woot launched all the Woot-OFF deals at once. This is a list of 100+ items. If you were always curious to see what items are offered in a Woot-OFF but didn’t want to sit through it throughout the day, this list is a pretty good indicator of what they offer. This was the “Clearance/Sellout” sub-Woot Woot-Off…

Yes, this is the launch of our new “Deal History Channel” 🙂 We’re also planning a “Deal Shark Week” and a “Mega Deal Twilight Zone Marathon” 😉

Woot-OFF Tuesday 8am to 10pm Central

A Woot teaser reveals that on Tuesday 1/19/21 between 8am and 10pm central time there will be another incarnation of the Woot-OFF at the Woot website. The teaser does not indicate which sub-Woots will participate ~ it will be revealed when it goes live on Tuesday at 8am central time…

UPDATE: among the Tuesday Best Buy daily deals is the recurring Joby GorillaPod Creator Kit offered for $50…
