Good until Thursday 12/22/16, if you pay for your Woot order with Amazon (they have a “Pay with Amazon” option), you will receive 10% off your order, with a maximum discount of $30 (in other words, a $300 order). There’s no coupon code to enter – here’s their explanation.
Lighting action now, not lightning, a common typo around these parts 🙂 The Profoto B1 500 AirTTL battery-powered monolight is bundled with two free Profoto items, an off-camera flash speedring, and a 24-inch OCF beauty ring with deflector plate, all together going for $2095 with free shipping at Adorama.
The Fuji X-T2 body only may be the current center of attention of the X-System [check Stock Status Tracker for that], but that doesn’t mean the other Fuji cameras disappeared or stopped working 🙂 Which brings us to the new condition Fuji X-PRO 2 body-only, it is bundled with a $150 Adorama gift certificate, together going for $1550 with free shipping at Adorama.
This is a combo in-stock and pre-order alert for the Venus Optics 12mm f2.8 lens at B&H Photo going for $949 with free shipping.

If you like to gift gift-cards but prefer to gift physical tangible gift cards, there are still a number of options available at Amazon with free 1-day shipping for all (they do that often for gift cards since they are featherweight).
Prime members have more options on free 1-day shipping or next-day delivery. However, some of these gift cards also offer free 1-day for non-Prime members. Regardless, the best way to tell for sure is to add the items of interest to your shopping cart and see what shipping fees and options the shopping cart shows you. It is the ultimate decider after all 🙂

+ some gift cards have preset amounts or you can enter an amount in the “Other” box up to $2000, others only have preset amounts
+ these are the Christmas Delivery Cut-Off Dates but the Shopping Cart estimate is the most accurate for each particular order at each particular point in time
The above are Amazon’s own gift cards, but they now also offer gift cards for other retailers, some of which are eligible for free 1-day shipping. Check the full list here (includes Whole Foods, Netflix, Starbucks, various restaurants and clothing stores, Spotify, etc)
TIP: if you are not going to be around to physically receive the gift cards, you also have the option to send them to a local Amazon Locker facility (eg 711, Safeway, etc – availability varies by region and zipcode).

Last Day for FREE 2-Day Prime deliveries is Thursday (but there are options for Friday and Saturday too!)
Amazon’s many different shipping and delivery options are paying off for procrastinators this year, especially if you are a Prime member. They have a variety of last minute delivery options including:
- Thursday is the last day for 2-Day shipping
- Friday is the last day for 1-Day shipping (some Prime member $35+ orders are eligible for free 1-Day shipping)
- Saturday (Christmas Eve): Same-Day Delivery (some Prime member $35+ orders are eligible) as late as 9:30am Local Time (or earlier; varies regionally)
- Saturday (Christmas Eve) Two Hour PrimeNow deliveries for Prime members as late as 9:45pm local time (or earlier; varies regionally)
- Sunday (Christmas Day): online gifts only; no physical deliveries
NOTE however that the local delivery varies by region, those Saturday cut-off times may be earlier in your region. And that’s before you factor in weather conditions. Some items may not be possible to ship/deliver fast enough. The most accurate estimate is when you add items of interest in your shopping cart and proceed to the Checkout page (the last step before placing an order).
DELIVERY TIP: you can optionally send your orders to local Amazon Lockers if you don’t want to play delivery tug-of-war with the delivery drivers. UPS and FedEx offer some rerouting flexibility (and have more experienced drivers), but Amazon’s own delivery service offers no customization. Since you can’t tell whose gonna deliver before you place the order, if you don’t want to deal with green panicked Amazon delivery drivers not finding you or not delivering because no one was home, you can send the shipment to an Amazon Locker and prevent potential delivery uncertainty.
If you haven’t used this promotion before, Amazon is offering a $5 off discount on orders of $25+ if you install the official Amazon Browser Extension. This offer only works one time per the lifetime of an Amazon account (OTU = one time use). The page tells you whether you are eligible if you are logged on to your Amazon account. If you are not logged on, you will see the promotion information. I don’t even remember how many centuries ago I did this promotion, but their servers remember 🙂
Batteries are included with this offer, since the batteries are the offer 🙂 One hundred twenty (120) Sony single-use Carbon Zinc AA batteries on sale for $25 with free shipping at Adorama. These are delivered as three 40-packs, which make it easier to split or share orders with friends and neighbors. Offer ends by 1/7/17 or earlier if sold out.
If you prefer the previous generation, the new condition GoPro HERO4 Black is bundled with a $50 electronic B&H Gift Card, together for $329 with free shipping when you do the “add to cart” song and dance at B&H Photo… This one of their latest Featured sales…
