eBay hearts coupon promotions these days and a new one is running until June 9 at 11:59pm pacific time. Coupon code PJUNESAVINGS10 gets you 10% off select products priced $25+ individually from 37 different eBay sellers, including Ritz Cameras, VM Innovations, 47th Street Photo, Red Tag Camera and more. You can find details on the promotion and eligible sellers at the Promotional page over there.

6pk of 100 Watt Equivalent LED A21 Light Bulbs for $18 (Daylight) or $19 (Soft White)

If you are looking for 100 Watt Equivalent A21 LED light bulbs, and don’t need to receive them yesterday, Amazon has a pre-order sale on their upcoming 6-packs in the Daylight Color (5000 Kelvin; 1400 lumens) for $18.26, and in the Soft White Color (2700 Kelvin, 1300 lumens) for $19.24. They are rated 15,000 hours per light bulb.

The 2-packs are shipping but the 6-packs are currently in pre-order status. Amazon’s pricing is so crazy that the 2-packs cost more (!) than the 6-packs, eg a 2-pack of 100W Daylight goes for $22.49, but a 6-pack goes for $18.26. You also get to keep the sturdy cardboard container the 6-pack comes in ~ see gallery picture #3 over there.

A “Clear” light bulb option (2700 Kelvin, 1000 lumens) is available in the listing, but it’s neither available at 100W, nor it is on sale on par with the other two options.

Nikon 50mm f1.8G with Extras for $177

The Nikon 50mm f/1.8G lens is bundled with some free extras for $177 with free shipping at Adorama. There are even two different freebie bundles, but one is a subset of the other, so this bigger bundle is a better offer: you get a 58mm Pro-Optic Digital Essentials Filter Kit, a lens-cap tether, a cleaning kit, and a Corel software kit (including Aftershot PRO 2, Paintshop Pro X9, and VideoStudio 9).

If you don’t want/need the extra accessories, you can get it for the same price with 4% promotional rewards at B&H Photo or 5% back as a statement credit for Prime members paying with Store Card or Chase VISA at Amazon itself

New 10.5-inch iPad PRO starts at $650, while Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 bundle gets discounted

Today’s 2.5 hour Apple Keynote at the 2017 World Wide Developer’s Conference ended but you can watch/rewatch it (and even watch it along with my live-trolling live-tweeting). One of the new things it brought us was a new 10.5 inch iPad PRO with faster everything, Pencil compatibility, iOS 11, dedicated tablet features, proper File Manager app, more multi-tasking, etc. Prices start at $650 for the new 10.5″ model.

But if you are of the Android persuasion, they have a discount to counter, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (with the S-Pen included as standard) is bundled the Samsung Keyboard Cover, all together for $562 by Amazon itself.

B&N coupon: 10% off $40+ OR 15% off $60+

Another coupon is live at the Barnes and Noble website, get 10% to 15% Off one Item With Code THANKSDAD by the end of day on 6/7/17. Orders over $60 get 15% off, while orders over $40 get 10% off. Strategically this is good for items that have the same prices everywhere or rarely go on sale. Free shipping with $25+ orders or if you are a paying member ($25/year).

The Clearance section is another place to look for deals. You can drill down the sub-categories or go directly to the Photography Clearance section.

Refurbished Nikon D7200 Body w/90-day warranty for $650

The new Nikon D7500 APS-C DSLR is now in-stock and shipping for $1250 as a body-only, but if you prefer to pay half of that and get a previous generation model, then to the eBay Deals we go…

… where the Buydig eBay store (99%, New Jersey) is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $650 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. Limit five units per customer.

Strategically, this is not an unreasonable strategy. Once a model is no longer “the latest model”, going for a manufacturer refurbished ~ as long as it has a solid discount over the new-condition ~ is a good way to make the most of your $$$. As long as you are comfortable with refurbished and such.
