Amazon teaser says DSLR two-lens kits under $500

In typical fashion, Amazon teased via press release some of their online doorbusters that will be offered by Black Friday. Of camera interest, the teaser says “Top selling DSLR with two-lenses for under $500”. They don’t say which, but we can theorize…

… if they follow the pattern of the brick and mortar circular ads, those repeatedly feature two sub-$500 two-lens DSLRs kits, the Nikon D3200 for $500 and the Canon D-Rebel T5 for $450. (in the ads, the D3200 two lens kit goes for $499.9x, which technically is under $500 – I round up prices for simplicity). So mayhaps these are the ones.

The press release also promises three “coveted” deals on “Thanksgiving at midnight” (nebulous when people say that – 11:59pm or 12:01am is much clearer!) and three more “coveted deals” on Black Friday. They will show up in their Black Friday page among many other places.

Black Friday Ad analysis updated with Target, Sears, Walmart

We updated the Black Friday Ad analysis mega-post at the main blog with a breakdown of the ads from Target, Sears and Walmart. The biggest discount perhaps is the Nikon Coolpix L330 compact-zoom (26x) offered for $100 at Target. They typically have one exclusive model number from Nikon they use as a doorbuster every year.

Short Term 1TB of Free Cloud Storage with computer purchase

If you are looking for short term cloud storage as additional-additional layers of backup of your photos, both Google and Microsoft are now offering rivaling 1TB cloud storage options for FREE when you purchase select Chromebooks and Windows 8 laptops -for a limited time. The catch however is that the storage is free for a limited time only, Google for two years and Microsoft OneDrive for one year. Microsoft started the 1TB thing and today Google “price matched” it by jumping from the usual 100MB for Chromebooks to 1TB. The Google deadline for purchases of eligible computers is 12/31/14. Terms and restrictions apply to these offers and I don’t know what happens if you are already in the middle of an offer or if you had previously redeemed a similar option… Ironically, perhaps we are getting close to the point where it might be cheaper to buy a new laptop to get the free 1TB Cloud storage than rent the Cloud storage outright 🙂

B&H Photo launches Deal of the Day (today 2TB Thunderbolt)
