Sony Memory Card sale: 32GB SD for $10, 64GB SD for $15 {shipping depends}

B&H Photo also has a Sony Memory Card sale featuring 16 different products, a mix of SD*, microSD*, SRM and profeessional video storage options. Of SD* interest, the 32GB cards start at $10, the 64GB (up to 70MB/sec) for $15, the 256GB (up to 70MB/sec) for $80. Free shipping with an order of $49+.

32GB Sony XQD G Series (QDG32A/J) for $65

Some discounting on the XQD memory card front, the 32GB Sony XQD Memory Card G Series 400MB/s (model QDG32A/J) is on sale for $65 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of five per customer. This significantly “defeats” (in GB/$) the 64GB and 128GB versions which go for $150+ and $300+ respectively.

120 Sony Ultra H. Duty Carbon Zinc AA batteries for $27

If you are a fan of single use Carbon Zinc AA batteries, Adorama has a couple of offers on Sony Ultra Heavy Duty packs. The 120 Sony Ultra Heavy Duty Carbon Zinc AA batteries goes for $27, while the 80 Sony Ultra Heavy Duty Carbon Zinc AA batteries goes for $20. The 120-pack wins the batteries per dollar.

PS: these are delivered as multiples of 40s. The 80 count is two 40-packs, while the 120 count is three 40-packs. In case you want to split orders with friends and co-workers, this can be handy versus “counting batteries”.

YMMV Amazon Chase VISA cardholders: Sony 70-200mm f2.8 (SAL70200G2) for $2400 with coupon

NOTE!!!: this is a YMMV promotion. I have no way of knowing how many people are eligible.

If you have an Amazon Chase VISA credit card and you are eligible for this promotion (detailed post explains the promotion ~ I don’t want to repeat the whole post) and logged on to your eligible Amazon account, there is a super hot deal [you will only see the offer if you are eligible] for the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 (SAL70200G2) [this is the lens page, everyone will see this].

The standard price for this lens is $3000. You add the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 (SAL70200G2) to your shopping cart, make sure your payment method is the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, and enter coupon code ARC20SPRING there. The price will drop by 20% in the right sidebar of the Amazon Checkout page, making it $2400 (rounded) with free shipping. This has to be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not 3rd-party sellers.

If it doesn’t, it means the promotion is not working, either because you are not eligible or you are using a different payment method or Amazon is not the actual seller or for other reason(s) that I am not aware of.

If all is well, it should look like this:

sony70200_chase_amzn

Again, please note this is a YMMV type of an offer, I have no way of testing this at a grand scale. I tested with an account with the Chase VISA card, one without it, and not being logged on to Amazon.

IF you tried this and it worked or didn’t please let us know in the comments!
