Nikon Coolpix P530 superzoom (imported model) for $230 [or refurbished authorized]

To the latest eBay Deals we geaux where we find the imported / gra market new condition Nikon Coolpix P530 superzoom offered for $230 with free shipping by eBay seller “bigvalueinc” (99.3%). Please note this does not come with a Nikon USA warranty because it was imported by the seller without their “blessings”. The seller offers their own one year warranty… The new condition price from authorized Nikon dealers is currently $350 (eg Amazonia)… Given the price difference, for some, this may be a reasonable risk. For others not so. We blog, you decide!

UPDATE: if you prefer the comfort of a blessed-by-Nikon USA model, you can get it for $230 with free shipping, in factory refurbished condition from BuyDig’s eBay store. So you can trade-off new/imported vs refurbished/authorized. Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert!

B&M: New York November 12 Big Adorama In-Store Sale

Amazon Prime members: FREE Unlimited Photo Storage [updated]

UPDATE (11/8/14): One of our readers pointed out in the comments that one of the Cloud Drive pages makes it sound like you only get unlimited photos only for photos taken with a Fire Phone or Fire Tablet. However, that looks like they messed up the wording – it looks like a failed attempt to market the Fire devices. Judging by multiple responses to Twitter questions by the official Cloud Drive Twitter account, it suggests that the offer is unlimited regardless of devices. For example, in the tweet below, one person asked them if 1.8TB (terabytes) was okay and they said yes as long as they are a Prime member…

One thing to note is that the offer is only for photos, not videos.

Another thing of note, if you are using uncommon file formats, their system may not recognize them as pictures and instead count them against the cloud quota. If so, contact their customer service and they should be able to fix it since they don’t have a restriction against RAW files philosophically.

ORIGINAL POST
If you are an Amazon Prime member, or if you are on the bubble as to whether to sign up or renew the membership, Amazon just revealed another Prime member benefit. Unlimited photo storage with Amazon Cloud Drive Photos.

They are multiple ways you can load up your Cloud Drive with photos: it has a Google Play Android app (Android 2.3.3 or later), an iTunes iOS app (iOS 7 or later), and Amazon Android-ish app store and Desktop PC apps (the pages for those try to automatically start a download so I’m not putting them here because that’s rude).

I haven’t read the full terms and conditions, so I don’t know how “unlimited” unlimited is. There are physical limits, although I guess there are also physical limits on how much and how fast one can upload as well 🙂

(ENDED) Pay $94, get $100 eBay Electronic Gift Card

As of a 11/4/14 at 2:08am ET recheck, this offer ended with over 7000 electronic gift cards sold… It’s a meta deal at the eBay Deals, for a limited time you can pay $94, and get a $100 eBay Gift Certificate emailed to you. This is not a plastic gift card by mail. Limit one per eBay account. It is sold by eBay seller “paypal_digital_gifts” (99.5%). Over 1500 of these got sold so far.

YMMV: $25 back after a $100+ Sony Store/Online purchase with AMEX

This may be a targeted offer for some American Express credit card holders. I have no way of knowing how many people may be seeing this. When you logon to your AMEX account, look for the tab that says “Amex Offers For You”. One of the offers there is $25 back in statement credit when you make a purchase of $100 or more at Sony brick and mortar stores or the online Sony store. You must claim the offer (by clicking “Save Offer”) and then making the purchase. The promotion ends by 2/3/15. One credit per customer during this promotional period… Obnoxiously annotated screenshot crop right below…
