Members only: $100 Gift Card with REI VISA card

Members only: if you are an REI member, and check your emails or look towards the bottom of the REI.com website, they have a promotion that gets you a $100 REI Gift Card if you apply and get approved for the REI Visa credit card and then make any purchase within 60 days of card approval. Even an energy bar would qualify for this requirement.

The credit card gets you 5% back in REI purchases. You are still eligible for the 10% annual member refund for items purchased at regular (non-sale) prices.

After you satisfy the requirements and receive the $100 REI gift card, you can use it to make purchases at REI. They have some outdoorsy camera gear (GoPros, JVC Adixxion, Sony action cams and their assorted accessories, various camera bags (Lowepro, Pelican, etc), etc). Or use it for any other purchases at REI.

NOTE: this offer is only available to REI members. Everyone can become a member, but you have to pay a one-time $20 membership fee to join the outdoorsy hippie collective :) The membership fee is not annual. You only pay it once per lifetime. Reincarnations not included!

Reminder: Camera & Photo Lightning Deals on Friday

Yet another week flew so fast. Friday is coming soon, and other things equal, there will be a new round of Camera and Photo Lightning Deals. If you don't see them there, you can also check at the unified Gold Box and the Back to School lightning deals. Last week we had a new twist, all Camera and Photo lightning deals went live at the same time and were published later in the day instead of 3am ET. We will monitor the situation and post a brand new separate blog-post after they go live.

Chase Freedom adding/updating Purchase Protection and Extended Warranty as of Nov-2013

Per an email sent to Chase Freedom credit card holders, Chase will be adding/updating Purchase Protection and Extended Warranty to its credit cards starting November 1st in 2013. Please note there might be different type of Chase Freedom credit cards and benefit levels, so make sure you have received an email or other type of communication from Chase that your specific credit card is eligible for these new/updated benefits.

The Purchase Protection offers protection of up to 120 days from purchase time from damage, theft, involuntary or accidental parting. There is a limit of $500 per claim and a $50,000 account maximum. Extended Warranty adds an extra year of warranty for items that come with an original warranty of three years or less. So if you buy a lens with a 5-year manufacturer warranty, it would not qualify for this. There is a limit of $10,000 per claim and a $50,000 account maximum. Also offered is Return Protection (within 90 days of purchase) and Price Protection (within 90 days of purchase).

As usual, there are plenty of restrictions and conditions and caveats and limits and exclusions with these type of offers. Chase has a webpage where you can read or download the PDF file. I wish they expanded on "Items that mysteriously disappear" :)

Pay no interest for 12 months with Amazon Store Card with eligible purchase of $599 or more

Amazon has their own Store Card, issued by GE Capital Retail Bank. This is a different card from the Amazon.com VISA credit card issued by Chase Manhattan. They currently have a promotion on select cameras priced at $599 or more, you pay no interest for 12 months if you pay them in full within those 12 months. If the full amount is not paid within those 12 months, interest is charged from the purchase date. So you must plan ahead to make sure that you will be able to pay in full within those 12 months. Minimum monthly payments required. Offer is subject to credit approval. Check all the details before jumping on! If you have any questions, contact Amazon Customer Service about this promotion - do not make assumptions! Use credit wisely!

The easiest way to find out if a camera is eligible, is to look at the "Special Offers and Product Promotions" section, two sections below the camera product picture at the camera product page. For example, if you locate the "Special Offers" section for the Sony RX1, you will notice this text:

"Twelve-Month Financing: For a limited time, purchase $599 or more using the Amazon.com Store Card and pay no interest for 12 months on your entire order if paid in full in 12 months. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional balance is not paid in full within 12 months. Minimum monthly payments required. Subject to credit approval. 1-Click and phone orders do not apply. See complete details and restrictions"

Meta: Internet Sales Tax is Coming (Symbolic Vote passes with 75 votes in Senate)

An internet sales tax is coming! It is no longer a question of if but a question of when. A symbolic non-binding vote in the Senate (a shot across the bow of sorts) passed with 75%+ of the votes (75-24). It got the vast majority of the Democratic votes, and a 3-to-2 majority of the Republican votes.

This margin is big enough it can survive not only filibusters but also a presidential veto. If members in the House of Representatives were to vote with the same party affiliation percentages as they did in the Senate, it would also get a veto-proof majority of the vote there.

Please note this was only a symbolic non-binding vote, but actual legislation is pending and being worked on that would make this a reality. Other things equal.

Here is the actual vote by Senator and here is the amendment that was voted upon and here is the pending bill that could/would make an internet sales tax a reality.

(OLDER POST) Will there be Amazon Camera & Photo Lightning Deals on Friday?

Yes, there are Amazon Camera and Photo page this Friday. See them at the aforelinked page or check the top of the blog for more details...

The previous previous two weeks there were no Camera and Photo Lightning Deals at Amazon. Last week, they did launch some but by the time we noticed them, they almost expired so we didn't post them. So we have no idea whether to expect any this Friday. We obviously can't stay up all night hitting refresh every 30 minutes, but you don't have to wait for us to spot them - you can check the Amazon Camera and Photo page. If/when the lightning deals are launched, you will see them there... We will of course try to check in as early as possible, but we are not robots. We has to ZzzZZZZz at some point!
