Black Friday Woot-OFF has began!

The promised Black Friday Woot-OFF has began at the Clearance/Sellout sub-Woot. The official run time of this BF Woot-off is 8am to 10pm central time. The usual terms apply, items change/rotate and you pay a flat shipping fee for everything you buy during the calendar day. If you are a Prime member, and login with your Prime Amazon account, you get free shipping on most things.

The only things that don’t get free shipping are items that are shipped outside the Woot/Amazon ecosystem, such as Shirts and Gourment. But even so, some of the Shirts/Gourmet items may have free shipping on their own on occasion.

Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 and $105 Kohls Cash for $400 [or buy filler item for $15 more Kohls Cash]

This offer is primarily of interest to fans of the KOHLS department stores, or anyone who does not object to shopping there to spend the rewards. For this offer, you must be part of the KOHLS rewards program or be willing to join it. It is free to join.

The offer is this. For every $50 you purchase, you earn $15 in Kohls rewards. Despite the name “Kohl’s Cash” this is not real cash, but virtual money you can spend sort of like cash at Kohls stores. Thus if you are a regular shopper there, it’s a good deal.

Which brings us to the Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 which sells for $399.99. As it is, it earns $105 in Kohls rewards. But if you add any filler item priced $0.01+, your total goes to $400+, thus you earn an additional $15 in Kohls rewards. Kohls sells a gazillion of things, including many small trinkets, so it shouldn’t be hard to find some little thing to add.

So for Kohls Rewards members, this is sort of like paying $280 for this DSLR kit ~ again, assuming you have no problem spending the Kohls rewards on things you want/need. Between rewards and coupons and special promotions, you can get some really good deals at Kohls – if you have the time/energy/interest to chase these things ~ the chances of which increase if you are reading this sentence!

PRO TIP: you can rinse and repeat this type of a promotion with any other camera of interest that is carried by Kohls. Kohls is no B&H, so selection is pretty limited, eg popular instant cameras, basic P&S, etc…

Sigma Lenses Instant Savings [119 options]

If you are a fan of Sigma lenses, a total of 119 options are participating in the latest Sigma Lenses Instant Savings promotion that is part of the ever-growing B&H Black Friday sale for 2018.

Some of the lenses earn promotional rewards that can be used in future purchases at B&H…

NOTE that this is 119 options, not 119 different/unique lenses. For example if fictitious lens 5mm f0.005 is available in ten different mounts, it will appear as ten options under the above listings…

PS: and before you say 5mm f0.005 cannot be done, check the camera store at the Reptilian Mothership above the Equator 😉
