B&H Financing Offer: 0% interest on $1849+ for 24 months

If you are planning a big camera(s) or lens(es) purchase or any other purchases (in a single receipt) at B&H, B&H Photo is having a limited time special financing offer. For purchases of $1849 or more, you get 24 months of 0% interest.

You MUST pay the full amount before/by the end of the 24 months. If the amount is not fully paid, you will be charged interest from the purchase date. So do this only if you are certain you can pay it off on time. Minimum monthly payments are required. Another option gives you 24 equal monthly payments, so by the end you’ll have paid the full amount automagically.

There are plenty of FAQS over there that answer questions about the offer. It is not stackable with the PayBoo (B&H refund your sales tax) BUT you can split the payment of order between the two offers with 12-month (or shorter) financing. The amount paid with PayBoo will get the PayBoo benefit (sales tax refund) and the amount paid with the B&H financing promotion will get the financing 0% promotion. Orders with longer than 12-month financing cannot be split-paid.

As usual, use credit wisely and judiciously!

A Scattered Round-Up of Daily Deals (of sorts)

We now have a scattered round-up of various daily deals and expiring-soons πŸ™‚

We start with the Adorama daily deal (changes Sunday 10am ET) where you can get the new condition Flashpoint M1 Mini Mobile Phone Flash (A1 Mini) for $15 with free US shipping…

Then at DiscountMAGS we go where the weekend sale theme (ends Monday night actually) is $5 per magazines per year. No camera/photo magazine but there are a few [not a lot like usual] “six degrees of separation” plus a little bit of an A/V theme under “Tech” (Stereophile and Sound-n-Vision [no, not the David Bowie box set])…

Good until August 1st, there’s an automatic in-cart sitewide 20% off discount with free US shipping at the RX Bar online shop. You see the regular price, then add the item(s) of interest to the shopping cart, and the 20% off discount appears there in the shopping cart. Note that some items have “natural flavors”. Note also that they recently expanded their product line-up and some of their new “nut butter packs” look like the RXbars on the flattened screen, so be sure you are buying the RXbars and not the nut-butter-packs [if that’s what you want]… I’ve eaten hundreds of Rxbars and look at where I am [this reads more like an anti-endorsement LOL]. My favorites in no particular order Maple Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate, and Coconut Chocolate… If you are new to this, try the Variety Packs… I haven’t tried any of their “breakfasty” stuff, so I can’t tell you anything about them [let’s not forget that cereal was invented as an anti-viagra way back; are you sure you want to be eating that? LOL {and that’s before we consider GMO, empty refined blood-sugar-spiking carbs, not-really-natural natural flavors, food colorings, food glueware, and other yucky things]

Is this turning into a Foodie Blog? Probably not πŸ™‚ Is it getting more random and out of control? Probably yes πŸ™‚

Then at the Saturday Woot daily deals we go where the headliner is a MacBook/MacMini sale ($520 to $1400), and there’s refurbished iMacs ($350 to $650), Birkenstocks for the corporate hippies, and more πŸ˜‰

Blog PSA: Feedburner Email Subscriptions Going Away!

We have a blog PSA alert! Google is changing Feedburner, the webservice we (and a lot of the internet) is using to create and manage the RSS of this blog.

Google is changing Feedburner, and in doing so, all non-core features are going away. One of the features that is going away is the RSS by email service.

If you are subscribed to this blog with Feedburner by email, through Feedburner, by mid-August, this service will NO LONGER WORK. The exact cut-off time is not known, and may float a little bit…

I will NOT be transferring the email subscriber list to any other service.

If you wish to have RSS via email, you must needs take action on your own. I am a few years behind on the latest RSS-related web services, so I have no clue which service(s) to recommend. If you use any and would like to recommend them, please leave them in the comments below…

For the last few years this blog has been running as a hobby ~ or mayhaps I’m just too stubborn to shut it down πŸ˜‰ Transitioning to one of the professional email services (they have monthly fees) is out of the question. I do not dare calculate costs (web hosting fees, etc) VS revenue (affiliate advertising income), because I’m afraid I may discover that it’s actually losing money ~ and that’s before you factor in the hours spent on this every year πŸ™‚

PS: this affects A LOT of websites, not just this blog. If you are subscribed to RSS by email for other websites, check if they have any alternatives or take action on your own…

PS2: if you are subscribed to regular Feedburner RSS through an RSS reader or RSS-like app, this should continue as usual. But as with any major web-related service transition (Google changing the Feedburner backend and infrastructure), there might be some unexpected temporary bumps on the road. The famous known unknowns πŸ˜‰
