Black Friday at KEH Camera: 10% off many items! {also 365-day warranty instead of 180-day}

Black Friday has arrived at KEH Camera with a 10% off coupon code BF21A that covers many items sold on their website EXCEPT:

+ EXCLUDED items below:
+ NEW condition
+ USED Like New
+ USED Like New Minus
+ Leica-branded products
+ EXCLUDED items above

OR you can easily test their coupon in their shopping cart and see whether it works or not…

The offer expires on Cyber Monday 11/29/21 at 11:59pm ET…

Another benefit of KEH Camera during the holiday shopping season: typical 180-day warranty is automagically upgraded to a 365-day warranty on items purchased until 12/31/21. There’s no action/coupon needed for this, it happens automagically based on the purchase date…

The warranty extension offer is only for items that were previously eligible for the 180-day warranty. For example products in the “AS IS” condition are not eligible for any warranty…

When you consider the price of a warranty for used items, and combined with the 10% off coupon, this can get you a good deal.
