If you are regular Dell Home shopper or do not mind making additional future purchases over there, they have a promotion on their 24-inch Dell UltraSharp U2415 Monitor. You pay $332.49 with free shipping but you also receive a $100 promotional eGift Card by email, 2-3 weeks after your order ships. The promotional eGift Card must be spent within 90 days (unless the expiration date is prohibited by law). This $100 promo credit appears magically in your shopping cart after you add the monitor there. The offer ends 2/8/16 at 7am central.
This is a WUXGA 1920 x 1200 monitor, with 99% sRGB coverage at a deltaE under 3, 178 x 178 degree viewing angle, and can work in a multi-monitor setup. It has two HDMI (MHL) ports, a DisplayPort and a mini-DisplayPort. Also USB ports (one upstream, five downstream (one is a charging port)).
Now if you have no interest in using the $100 promo credit, and you just want the monitor, it currently goes for $280 at Amazon by Amazon herself. The reviews there are for multiple models, so be sure to look at the filtered list of its own reviews. A total of 284, unfortunately their system does not average the filtered results. At Dell’s it averages 4.2/5 based on 14 customer reviews.
Here’s a screenshot of what you should be seeing in the Dell shopping cart while this promotion is running:

The promotional credit will be shown in the shopping cart and will be emailed to you later. This has to be used within 90 days, so if you are not a regular Dell shopper, you may want to plan how you are going to spend it before pulling the trigger.

Sony launched a new 2-week promotion good until Valentine’s Day (2/14/16) offering instant savings on some of their Lenses, and Flashes and interchangeable Lens Cameras, and Cybershots. You can find all participating items nicely organized at B&H Photo.
The action continues when you scroll further down the eBay Deals (it can take half a day to go through them all). If you are going to take a chance on an imported grey-market lens, a simple prime lens with a double figure price is about as low of a risk one can take. Which brings us to the imported grey-market new-condition Nikon 50mm f1.8D Lens offered for $99 with free shipping by eBay seller “Peach Photo” (99.8%), with a limit of 50 per customer. Perfect quantity limit if you are planning to have an Oprah moment at your office or living room, “Look under your chairs, you get a 50, you get a 50, and you get a 50, and you get a 50!”
Speaking of Nikon primes, also imported grey-market new-condition, it is the Nikon 50mm f1.8G with a UV filter and cleaning kit going for $174 with free shipping by eBay seller “6ave” (98.8%) with a limit of 50 per customer. It comes with a one-year warranty from Six Avenue, not from Nikon USA.
Since we are talking low priced Nikon imports, the grey market new condition Nikon SB-300 Flash is offered for $120 with free shipping with a limit of three per customer by eBay seller Peach Photo.
The Fujifilm Instax Share Smartphone Printer SP-1 is currently on sale for just under $135 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of two per customer. The shipping estimate is “February 4” as of the time of writing. It is in-stock from other lesser-known 3rd-party sellers over there, but I do not know if they are authorized dealers.
I also don’t know the authorized dealer status of the following seller, but it is one of the featured eBay Deals, it is the above printer bundled two 10pks of Instax Instant Film for $149 with free shipping by eBay seller “PhotoVideo4Less” (99.9%), with a limit of five kits per customer.
The new condition GoPro HERO4 SILVER action camera is currently on sale for $338 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo. You may have to add it to the shopping cart to see the price depending on your logged-on status.
Alternately it is also offered for $319 with free shipping by eBay Seller AllNewShop (99.4%) but there is no information about warranty status in the listing.
While we are on eBay, NewEgg’s eBay store is offering the new condition 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim USB 3.0 Portable External HDD for $70 with free shipping, in either silver or black, with a limit of five per customer.
Speaking of eBay, the first generation new condition Google Chromecast is on sale for $26 with free shipping, with a limit of 50 per customer from eBay seller “BlueProton” (99.3%). Over 5000 units got sold according to the stats over there.

NOTE: the items listed above assume a “limit 1” per item and the offer is good in-store and online. If something’s different I will write it next to the item. This makes it easier to read, because most items are “limit 1” and good in-store and online.
More eBay Deals action, we return to the Get It Digital eBay store with an imported grey-marked DSLR that was part of a Kit With Lens but was separated from the lens and sold separately. This time it is the new condition Canon 70D body only going for $650 with free shipping with a limit five per customer. There is no mention of warranty in the listing.
Another option, somewhere in-between, you can get it in open-box condition with a 1-year Canon USA warranty for $800 at Adorama.
Back to the eBay Deals we go, where NewEgg’s eBay store is offering the new condition 4TB SAMSUNG D3 Station USB 3.0 3.5″ Desktop External Hard Drive, model STSHX-D401TDB, for $100 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer. The pixels need their backups!
The Pentax 50mm f1.8 DA lens is currently going for $90 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself but it is in “temporarily out of stock” state, so the shipping date is uncertain… If you prefer something more deterministic, it goes for $91 with free S&H and it is in-stock as of the time of writing at B&H Photo and Adorama…
… Speaking of Adorama, they have nearly 50 Pentax Lenses on sale…
The Canon EF 40mm f2.8 STM lens is available in open-box condition for $119 with free expedited shipping from Adorama. This is described as “Open Box-Packaging may show some wear and tear. Includes all original accessories and full 1 year Canon USA warranty.”… This is one of 500+ Camera and Photo Specials at Adorama…
The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Quadcopter Drone currently goes for $800 in new condition (eg Amazon) but if you are a fan of manufacturer refurbished products, you can get it for $650 with free shipping by BuyDig’s eBay store. Limit five per customer.
Speaking of eBay, if you are photographing out and about in the cold and semi-howling wind, eBay seller “HomieGear” (99.3%) is offering new-without-tags One-Size-Fits-All Beanie Hats for $2 each with free shipping from Southern California. Three color schemes are available (grey, black, blue), with a limit of 50 per customer. But wait there’s more! They also have an automatic offer, “Buy 3 Get 1 half-off”. It happens automatically in the shopping cart for quantities that are multiples of 4. It’s a essentially $1 off if you buy four of them. This is expensive enough to qualify as a “Noisy Designer Fashion” item 😉
To the Trending eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “GetItDigital” (99.5%) is offering the imported grey-marked new-condition Canon 6D body only for $1000 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer.
Based on the eBay listing, this does not specify whether it comes with seller’s warranty. It definitely does not come with a Canon USA warranty. This camera was part of a Canon 6D with Lens kit, but they are selling the camera and the lens separately to “share” the kit discount with the customers
Yet another option (if you have no use/need for the extra accessories) is open-box condition of the Canon USA version with a 1-year Canon USA warranty going for $1270 at Adorama.
If you are a fan of open-box camera gear, the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM is available in Open Box condition for $450 with free shipping at Adorama. Per the description there, this is:
“Open Box-Packaging may show some wear and tear. Includes all original accessories and full 1 year Canon USA warranty.”
If you are interested in the Sony a7 II body only kit, there is a special offer at B&H Photo, you pay the standard authorized dealer price of $1700 and in addition to the camera kit, you also receive the official Sony soft carrying case kit (LCSELCB) and 10% promotional rewards ($170~) to be used in future purchases.
If you were about to pull the trigger on the Sony a7R II body only from an authorized dealer, B&H Photo is sweetening the pie a little bit by including a FREE $200 B&H Photo Gift Card with your order. Look for the tab with the “Free $200 Gift Card” sign on it at the B&H Photo Product Page.

All the new gear purchased during the 2015 holiday season deserve their own brand new bags. Or at least that’s the excuse one may need to use to convince the Spouse CFO to approve the purchase 😉 Regardless, B&H Photo is now offering the Lowepro Vertex 100 AW Backpack (for Digital Camera Equipment and most 14″ Laptop Computer (Black)) for $180 with free expedited shipping. This is a limited time offer but I do not know when it expires.
