Prime Reading FREE to Read Latest Issues include Shutterbug

If you are a Prime member, one of the many Prime Benefits is the “Prime Reading” feature that allows you to read a number of items for FREE. This includes e-books (around 1000 options), along with some comic books and single magazine issues (typically the latest issue).

Among the latest Free to Read Magazines is the September 2017 issue of Shutterbug, along with the August 2017 issue of Consumer Reports and the August 2017 issue of WIRED.

You can read as many eligible items as you want with Prime Reading, however, you can only have ten items checked out at a time. So if you are interested in a lot of things, get a mix of things you will read quickly and things you’ll read slowly, so your ten spots won’t be taken over by slow-reading material. Of course you can still return and re-pick them at any time.

Once you borrow an item, you can keep it as long as you want. While you keep it, it will take one of your ten slots.

Doorbusters are excluded. Limit five per customer. I’m not sure if the weekly promo code is needed for this offer ~ the box with the offer does not mention the need for a Promo Code. This offer is only available at B&M Fry’s stores.

It has 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz resolution, 16:9, etc. Only two reviews at Staples but there are more at amazon.com. There are two models on that listing there, make sure you check the reviews for this mode. Here’s the filtered list of 43 of them. The top rated review there complains of washed out colors and design decisions. The second is a happy Ubuntu Gnome user (obligatory joke: the user is not a gnome).

AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras for $3 [limit 10 sets]

If you always run out of cleaning supplies, or you want to have a full set in every bag, car and location, Amazon has a sale on their AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras for the very specific price of $3.27. You can buy up to ten sets per customer.

Each set includes (the number below corresponds to the mouse-written red number in the picture):

  1. 50 sheets of lens cleaning tissue
  2. refillable spray bottle
  3. retractable two-sided cleaning pen with brush and pad
  4. lens brush (looks like a makeup brush)
  5. air blower
  6. three microfiber 6×7 inch cleaning cloths

This set averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 30 customer reviews.

This is however an ADD-ON ITEM, so you must needs place a $25+ order, otherwise the Amazon shopping cart will not let you buy it. You can get to $25+ with any combination of eligible products, a mix of Add-ON and not, or ADD-ON only, eg eight of these will get you to $25+.

For other low-priced Add-ON items to help you get over $25, check the $5 Gadget posts.

Another way to jump over $25 is to get the $28 AmazonBasics Flash. This is its regular price, not a sale price. It averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 88 customer reviews and it is currently the #1 seller in Shoe-Mounted Flashes.

PS: keep in mind, Amazon’s best selling lists are only as good as their categorization of products. The more products they add and the more 3rd-party sellers are allowed to create listings, the bigger the mess it becomes. This is one of the reasons I stopped doing the Best Seller Charts blogs since more and more cameras were missing and more miscategorized products were included.

50-Inch AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod with Bag for $13

The AmazonBasics Amazon house brand has quietly amassed over 120 camera and photo products, some of which randomly (?) go on a recurring sale, such as the new condition 50-Inch AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod with Bag on sale for $13~ with a limit of up to ten units per customer. Free 2-day shipping for Prime members, or with a $25+ order (eg two of these).

It is on the same listing as the 60-inch version. Together they average 4.4 out of 5 with over 7000 customer reviews. There is no way to get review average sub-scores for each model ~ short of counting and averaging them manually!

Saturday Lightning Deals: Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 30 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

Huawei Honor 8 Unlocked for $259

If you are curious about dual-lens smartphones, and you are also looking for an unlocked 4G LTE new condition smartphone, the 32GB Huawei Honor 8 Unlocked with USA warranty in the blue or white color schemes is on sale for $259 at Amazon by Amazon itself. It has 4GB RAM, 32GB on-board, microSD slot, etc.

Keep in mind, IFA 2017 is just around the corner in Berlin [see Trade Show Calendar] with more Fall 2017 smartphones revealed in the next few weeks (Note 8, LG V30, Pixel 2, iPhones, etc).

Olympus E-M5 II Body with 12-50mm EZ for $999 also eligible for Optional Combined Purchase Olympus Lens Discounts

The Olympus E-M5 II body only has a current promotion that includes the Olympus 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens for FREE, going for $999 with free shipping and $40~ in promotional rewards at Adorama in the Black color scheme or the Silver color scheme. But that’s not all!

When you expand the “Special Offer” section (look for the yellow tab towards the middle of the page over there), you will see a variety of OPTIONAL combined purchase discounts. If you buy this kit with the eligible items, you will get the eligible lenses (or other accessories) at a discount over their current prices.

Here’s a screenshot of that section of the page, annotated John Madden style, to give you some ideas:

ORLIT RoveLight RT 610 TTL Monolight for $599

Lighting action now at Adorama. They are offering the ORLIT RoveLight RT 610 TTL Monolight with On Board Power for $599 with free shipping in the Bowens Mount. The standard version (without a transmitter) gets a free ORLIT 5.5″ Reflector. The Canon version and Nikon version include transceivers fro their respective systems. They all go for $599, which explains why the ones with a transceiver don’t get a free reflector 🙂
