If you need a handful of AAA rechargeable batteries, the 12pk of AmazonBasics 800 mAh batteries is currently on sale for $12 at Amazon by Amazon itself. That’s $1 per battery. You can buy as many as you like. This is an old fashioned sale, not a lightning deal, not an Add-On.

If you are close to $25, check the previous AmazonBasics posts.
The AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit hasn’t been discounted to doorbuster pricing again, but we have another AmazonBasics camera bag that is currently discounted. It is the new condition AmazonBasics Holster Camera Case going for the very specific price of $6.94, with up to three per customer at the sale price.
Check reviews (4.3 out of 5 on 880+) and answered questions (91 of them) and the product description and galleries to get a feel for what it can and what it cannot fit.
HOWEVER, this is currently an ADD-ON item. Anyone can buy it, unlike the orange DSLR gadget bag, this one can be purchased by all customers, not just Prime members. But because it is an ADD-ON item, you must have a $25+ order in your shopping cart. This applies to everyone, since the main reason of the ADD-ON program was to curb Prime members’ enthusiasm [HA!] ~ eg, buying a $1 trinket and getting FREE 2-day shipping coast to coast 🙂

Check the pictures and descriptions for measurements to get a feel for what you can fit in. Here’s a screenshot of one of the many gallery pictures over there. The 80-second video is a general AmazonBasics branding video, not for this bag in particular.

It’s the modest return of another “$5 Gadget” post…

The craziness of Amazon pricing! The AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras is now down to $2.23 per set. However, the limit is now three sets per customer. It was up to ten sets per customer when the price was hovering around $3.
This is still an ADD-ON item (you must needs place a $25+ order, elsewise the shopping cart won’t let you buy it – look for ideas to get to $25+ in the AmazonBasics posts.
You get six different cleaning accessories in each set, outlined here [the numbers in the picture below are indexed in the aforelinked post].
If you are looking for AAA rechargeable batteries, the 8-pack AmazonBasics AAA Rechargeable Batteries (made in Japan) are on sale for $10 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of 30 8-packs per customer.
If you prefer AA batteries, the AA 8-pack goes for $14 each.
If you are close to getting to $25+/$35+ for free shipping or need more accessories, here are some other AmazonBasics items on sale:
+ Cleaning Kit for $2.61 (price has minor fluctuations) – more details on this bundle
+ 50-Inch AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod with Bag for $13

How long can you go? The regular price of the AmazonBasics Electronic Flash for DSLR Cameras is $28, but it’s currently on sale (not a lightning deal) for $23.26, in new condition, with up to ten units per customer. Prime members get free 2-day shipping. Non-Prime members need a $25+ order for free shipping…
… which brings us to the AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras currently going for just under $3. Each set has six different products – see detailed post. One of this will get you over $25, and get you free shipping.
If you always run out of cleaning supplies, or you want to have a full set in every bag, car and location, Amazon has a sale on their AmazonBasics Cleaning Kit for DSLR Cameras for the very specific price of $3.27. You can buy up to ten sets per customer.
Each set includes (the number below corresponds to the mouse-written red number in the picture):
- 50 sheets of lens cleaning tissue
- refillable spray bottle
- retractable two-sided cleaning pen with brush and pad
- lens brush (looks like a makeup brush)
- air blower
- three microfiber 6×7 inch cleaning cloths
This set averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 30 customer reviews.
This is however an ADD-ON ITEM, so you must needs place a $25+ order, otherwise the Amazon shopping cart will not let you buy it. You can get to $25+ with any combination of eligible products, a mix of Add-ON and not, or ADD-ON only, eg eight of these will get you to $25+.
For other low-priced Add-ON items to help you get over $25, check the $5 Gadget posts.
Another way to jump over $25 is to get the $28 AmazonBasics Flash. This is its regular price, not a sale price. It averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 88 customer reviews and it is currently the #1 seller in Shoe-Mounted Flashes.
PS: keep in mind, Amazon’s best selling lists are only as good as their categorization of products. The more products they add and the more 3rd-party sellers are allowed to create listings, the bigger the mess it becomes. This is one of the reasons I stopped doing the Best Seller Charts blogs since more and more cameras were missing and more miscategorized products were included.
The AmazonBasics Amazon house brand has quietly amassed over 120 camera and photo products, some of which randomly (?) go on a recurring sale, such as the new condition 50-Inch AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod with Bag on sale for $13~ with a limit of up to ten units per customer. Free 2-day shipping for Prime members, or with a $25+ order (eg two of these).
It is on the same listing as the 60-inch version. Together they average 4.4 out of 5 with over 7000 customer reviews. There is no way to get review average sub-scores for each model ~ short of counting and averaging them manually!
This sale ended, but the 99c Dash Button deal is recurring every few weeks. It may return during the Prime Day festivities, I do not know but Amazon has ever-increasing focus on their own hardware devices and services these days…
Continue reading “(ENDED) Saturday: 99c Amazon Dash buttons include Rayovac and AmazonBasics and Ansmann batteries”
To the rechargeable batteries we go, where the 12-pack of AmazonBasics pre-charged AAA rechargeable batteries is on sale for $12 by Amazon itself. You can buy as many as you like. It is not a lightning deal. It is also available through “Subscribe and Save”.
If you don’t need that many, the 8-pack goes for $10. They ship in the typical frustration-free AmazonBasics cardboard boxes which are almost always repurposable and recyclable.
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.
Batteries are included in this item. In fact, it is batteries 🙂 The 100-pack of AmazonBasics single-use AA batteries is currently on sale for the very specific price of $16.52 at Amazon by Amazon actual with a limit of up to 27 100-packs per customer. This is not a lightning deal, so expiration time/date unknown. It comes out to six batteries per dollar, which is pretty good. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $35+ order.
Speaking of 100-packs from AmazonBasics, they have a 100-pack of 1.0mm Ballpoint pens for $4.06, half of the pens are blue, half are black. This is an Add-On item, so a $25+ order is a must. It comes out to almost 25 pens per dollar. Useful if pens keep disappearing at the studio or if you want to donate at a local school or non-profit. For more Amazon-y things, check the Elsewhere at Amazon section in the almost-daily lightning deal round-ups.
More new camera-related accessories from the AmazonBasics brand, the black and blue color schemes of the AmazonBasics Trekker Camera Backpack are on sale for $51 with free shipping. The orange option is not on sale, it remains at $60. They are so new they have 12 customer reviews with a 4 out of 5.
Low-priced items can only have small discounts (otherwise they’d be free) which brings us to the 62mm AmazonBasics UV Protection Lens Filter on sale for $4.52 instead of its regular price of $2 more. Limit ten per customer. This is not an ADD-ON item, so as a Prime member you can get this in 2~ days for free (or if it’s eligible you can select slow-shipping and get a $1 digital credit or any other promotion they may have ~ sometimes they don’t on small items).
If not a Prime member, it’s an appetizer if you are planning a larger order, or if you are close to $35+ and need another small thing t to you free shipping. This is not a lightning deal. The AmazonBasics product line continues to expand, they have over 900 products now.
This sale ended…
If you are a fan of the AmazonBasics brand, the new condition 67-inch AmazonBasics is on sale for $12 by Amazon itself. Limit up to ten units per customer. It averages 4.6 out of 5 based on 580+ customer reviews and has 75+ questions answered. You can’t blame the internet for not being thorough on a $12 monopod 🙂 Free 2-day shipping for Prime members. The new-old-usual of $35+ gets free super-saver shipping for non-Prime members. This is not a lightning deal.
