Amazon may be issuing refunds on price drops within 7 days of delivery date

Through the years Amazon had taken various approaches to dealing with internal price-matching. It looks like these days Amazon's approach is to price-match their own price if it drops within seven days after your order is delivered. So, for example, you bought Nikon XYZ-40D on Monday 1/1 for $400. It gets delivered to you on Friday 1/5. On Wednesday 1/10 you notice the price is down to $350 at their website. You can then contact their customer support and ask for a refund of the difference.

NOTE: this only applies to items sold and shipped by Amazon itself (not marketplace or 3rd-party, or used or individual sellers).

This came to light via Reddit and Business Insider and Lifehacker and CNet Howto.

(ENDED) 1SaleADay SellOff begins (YMMV)

This limited time offer ended... To celebrate Black Friday, deal of the day website 1Saleaday (now 1sale.com) has launched a SELL-OFF. A new product is offered for sale every 30 minutes, at X:00 and X:30 every hour. Unlike the Woot-OFFs, this one changes every 30 minutes, whether it sold out or not. Cameras are among the items they regularly feature, but I have no way of knowing if/when they will have camera related gear during the sell-off, so this is a YMMV adventure.

Adorama Street Fair Specials for online shoppers as well

In addition to the previously mentioned Adorama specials, they have a lot more online Street Fair specials to celebrate the actual Adorama Street Fair in New York. The online specials are good for the whole week. There are too many items to list and we obviously can't price check them all so that part is DIY.

Coupon Code: 61082. Discount applies to any camera. Excludes clearance. Each item purchased can only be discounted by one coupon, applied by cashier in order received and prior to tax. Expires 6/15/13. This is a brick and mortar in-store only coupon!

10% off select electronics at Amazon when you pay with Citibank card (must use coupon code, may be targeted)

This is an intermediate level deal, so please pay attention to the details and terms and conditions. This may be a targeted promotion by Citibank. Check your emails for an email from Citibank informing you of this promotion. The email includes a unique one-time-use coupon code that will get you the 10% off discount.

Between June 1 and 9 in 2013, you can get a 10% off discount on the current prices of select consumer electronics (161 items) when you pay with a Citibank credit card. A total of ten Camera & Photo items are eligible, three Tamrac phtoo backpacks, five BlackRapids, and two Sony HDR-CX-series camcorders.

TIP: do not use Thank You Points to buy items at Amazon. The exchange rate is not favorable for you (it is worse than 1:1). You can get electronic Amazon Gift Cards at a 1:1 exchange rate when you call the Thank You program and ask to redeem your points for an electronic Amazon Gift Card (Amazon gift cards go in and out of the Thank You program every couple of years - or so it seems).

May 5-11: Pay $45, get $50 in Amazon plastic gift cards (B&M)

The circular ad for the brick and mortar shopping week of May 5 to 11 (2013) for Office Max brick and mortar stores is out and on the front page, it reveals an offer that gets you a $5 discount when you purchase two $25 Amazon plastic gift cards. No coupons. That's like getting a 10% discount on a $50 Amazon purchase. Considering that Amazon gift cards are almost as good as cash in terms of value, these often sell out quickly, especially if you live in an area with a lot of online shoppers or crafty Craiglisters. This is at Office Max B&M stores, not their website. This is an offer that is recurring every few months, I was expecting a catch, but actually both times I jumped on this offer in the past, there were no problems (except for finding the gift cards in-stock).

YMMV: Amazon email offer, 10% off order of $100+

Amazon is sending out targeted promotions by email. Check your inbox. It offers a 10% off discount on a single shopping cart order containing physical product(s) with a total of $100 or more, sold and shipped by Amazon itself. It expires 12/16/12. The coupon code is unique per email. I don't know how general the offer is or whether it is Prime-related or not. You will know the coupon works if the discount appears at the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page after you enter it there.

(ENDED) NewEgg Black Friday specials: refurb Fuji W3 3D for $160

This limited time promotion expired... It looks like some of the NewEgg specials have gone live! This is the long page that has the digital cameras - page-down towards the bottom, the "Digital Cameras, Camcorders & Accessories" section...

You can different views of them on the Newegg home page or the Black Friday specials page... Please note: some of the items are sold and shipped by NewEgg itself, others are sold by NewEgg Marketplace sellers (third-party sellers; not NewEgg itself). If you are not familiar with a particular Marketplace seller, be sure to research them to your satisfaction! Also be sure to research their authorized dealer status. Due to the sheer volume of things happening, we simply can't do that at the moment... The most competitively priced camera of the lot (excluding unknown/unvetted marketplace sellers) appears to be the refurbished Fuji W3 3D camera for $160 with free shipping sold by NewEgg itself... I have only gone through the digital cameras section, so I don't know how good the deals might be in the computers and consumer electronics categories. But the camera section is very disappointing. Most of the interesting cameras are offered by unknown/unvetted marketplace sellers and in strange kits.

The strangest of which perhaps is this one, the Canon 5D Mark III with the 75-300mm f4-5.6 lens. A lens that some people think should not even be included with the entry-level D-Rebels.

This is not just camera & photo. You can find more details about this promotion and you can search for participating retailers by zipcode and/or business name at the American Express website. If you haven't participated in this promotion before, be sure to read through the details! Do not assume! This promotion has its own quirks, restrictions, rules, terms and conditions.

Pentax Q has big price drop in Hong Kong

The price of the Pentax Q has taken a big drop in Hong Kong writes RiceHigh. The Pentax Q is a camera that was essentially targeted for the more advanced tech markets in Asia (Japan, Hong Kong, etc), so it will be interesting to see whether the prices also drop dramatically in other markets where the Q is not as popular (polite way of saying it) [more unpopular (keeping it real way of saying it].

In the US market, Amazon prices are floating in the $5XX to $600 territory... For a refresher on the camera, check its list of completed reviews.

$10 credit for select Kindle e-Textbooks (includes Photoshop/imaging ebooks)

Amazon is running a limited time promotion that gives you a $10 credit towards the purchase of select Kindle e-Textbooks. This promotion is only good for electronic textbooks, not for paper textbooks. This is good only for select e-textbooks, not for every ebook. Be sure to pay attention to the details of this promotion as it is an intermediate level deal, it is not a simple add-to-cart-and-you-are-done!

1. Enter the promo code to your Amazon account - see complete details. You must redeem this by the end of day January 9, 2012.

2. Only e-textbooks that show this on their individual pages qualify:


3. If you are looking for some ideas, check the Top Selling Kindle e-Textbooks, among them you will find these photography-related eligible e-books: Photoshop CS4: Missing Manual ($6) and The Photoshop Darkroom: Creative Digital Post-Processing for under $3.50. For programmer geeks, there's the Pro Android ($5), and for business geeks, there's the The Six Sigma Black Belt Handbook ($6+)... There are more photography-related e-textbooks in the Top 100, including Joe McNally, David duChemin, Syl Arena, and Scott Kelby...

4. This is a $10 credit, not a $10 off discount, so you can use it on one or more qualifying e-textbooks. The price of the individual e-textbooks does not have to be over $10.

5. You cannot test it before buying, but right after you buy (on your computer), you can view the order receipt to make sure the promotional credit was factored in. If it doesn't work, you can painlessly cancel the order and get a refund at the Manage Your Kindle page. Simply locate the offending e-book, click on "Actions" on the far right side, and select "Return for Refund". Your payment method will be refunded and the ebook will disappear from your collection. A very painless refund process (I requested refunds this way a couple of times before and it is very easy)
