GoPRO HERO6 with $50 Gift Card for $450

Another one of the eBay Black Friday Ad specials [see 2017 BF Ads Digest] has gone live at the eBay Deals, it is the new condition GoPRO HERO 6 with a $50 eBay Gift Card (does not specify whether this is digital or plastic by mail) and a 16GB microSD card offered for $450 with free shipping by the 6ave eBay Store. Limit three per customer.

There is no mention of warranty on the listing, so assume there is none to be on the safe side. This is the same seller that is apparently offering the $1500 Panasonic GH5.

UPDATE: speaking of eBay and Black Friday, another one of their doorbusters is live, the new condition Google Home offered for $79 with free shipping by Yapper Wireless, with up to three units per customer at the sale price. The listing says it comes with a 1-year warranty.

UPDATE #2: another eBay doorbuster, new condition Apple AirPods for $150 with free S&H.

Sony a7R II Body with One Serious Freebie (choices LR6, 4TB HDD, Creative Cloud, Tascam Mic) for $2398

The Sony a7r II was going for $2900 when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts two weeks ago, but the combination of the impending release of the a7r III and the various Instant Savings offers have dropped its price down to $2400 and that’s not all, you also get free items with purchase!

At B&H Photo, you have a choice of serious freebies: either a 4TB WD MyPassport External HDD or a free 1-Year Photographer Creative Cloud subscription.

At Adorama you have a choice of freebies as well, either Lightroom 6 software or Tascam DR-10S Mic or the customary bundle of photo accessories.

Amazon is stingy on the freebies (none) but if you pay for it with a Prime VISA you will get 5% as a statement credit (that’s $120).

Sony a6500 with 16-50mm and Sigma 30/1.4 DC DN for $1469

The Sony a6500 dropped to $1200 body only or $1300 with the 16-50mm as part of this week’s Instant Savings madness.

BUT IF you want to buy the Sony a6500 with 16-50mm kit and a prime lens too, more specifically the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN (E-mount of course), you get them together as a bundle for $1469 at BuyDIG.com. Just add to cart and proceed to checkout. No coupons, no rebates.

The Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN lens on its own goes for $339 with freebies at Adorama or with 4% rewards at B&H Photo.

So with the BuyDIG bundle, you are adding the 30/1.4 lens for $170 more, half off its on-its-own price.

Sony a7S II body with Rokinon 35mm f2.8 FE for $2500

The Sony a7S II body only is now down to $2400 BUT if you also want to buy a prime lens, more specifically the Rokinon 35mm f2.8 FE (IO35AF-E) autofocus lens, you can get them together as a bundle for $2500 with free shipping at BuyDIG.com. No coupon needed, just add to cart and checkout.

New Offer for Nikon D750 kits: FREE MB-D16 Battery Grip, $80 Hiker Backpack and 128GB Samsung EVO microSD

Last night when I posted the Nikon D750 Free Battery Grip promotions, Amazon’s humans, hybrids, and bots were asleep and did not have their own offers running.

But as of this recheck, Amazon created its own bundle, it’s a nice one, you get a FREE $80 AmazonBasics Hiker Camera and Laptop Backpack (link is for reference only; you don’t add it to shopping cart separately), and a 128GB Samsung EVO Select microSD (with matching SD adapter included), along of course with the Nikon MB-D16 Multi Battery Power Pack/Grip for D750.

So the bundles are, the Nikon D750 body only with the MB-D16 battery grip, AB Hiker Backpack and 128GB Samsung EVO microSD for $1500 or the Nikon D750 with 24-120 with the same three freebies for $2000.

All items will be included in the shopping cart automatically and priced accordingly. Amazon finally figured out how to do consumer-friendly bundles 🙂

If you pay with an Amazon Chase Prime VISA credit card, or the Amazon house store credit card, you get 5% back as a statement credit, which is a pretty nice amount considering the price of the cameras, $75 for the body only or $100 for the “with 24-120”.

If you are not a Prime member, but you have the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, you get 3% back as a statement credit, still a solid $45 or $60. Or if you have a Discover credit card, they are running 5% caskback promotions for Q4 of 2017. Note however that the maximum is $1500 per credit card for the quarter (October 1st until December 31st).

I suppose that’s one of the benefits of Amazon having its own brands of products like AmazonBasics, they can bundle them up as they please.

Let’s start from the beginning…

At B&H Photo you buy the bundle that consists of the Canon 5D Mark IV body only, the PIXMA PRO 100 printer, and the 50pk Canon SG-201 photo paper for $3629 with free shipping. After you receive the order, make sure all is well, and submit the mail-in rebate, a few weeks later, you will receive a $350 prepaid AMEX gift card by mail. This will make it $3279 after rebate. That’s $20 less than the camera without the printer.

A similar offer is available for the with the 24-70mm and also with the 24-105mm.

At B&H Photo they are bundling the Canon G5 X with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer and 50pk Canon SG-201 printer. You pay $999 at checkout, receive the order, submit the mail-in rebate, and if all is well, a few weeks later you receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card by mail, making it a $650 after $350 MIR.

So you pay $79 less, and you get a free printer and photo paper. As long as you are willing to do the mail-in rebate song and dance.

Canon G9X with Pixma PRO 100 printer and paper and 2% rewards for $399 + S&H (after $350 MIR)

Price checking is under way now for the final installment in our November 2017 Camera Price Charts series. We are now price-checking Serious Fixed Lens Cameras with RAW!

The Canon G9X compact with RAW goes for $399 in new condition at authorized Canon dealers. But if you also want to get the Pixma PRO 100 printer and don’t object to mail-in rebates and prepaid AMEX gift cards…

… then to B&H Photo we go where you can get either the black or brown color scheme of the G9X along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer and the 50pk Canon SG-201 printer for $399 plus shipping (around $10) after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card). You also get 2% promotional rewards (I believe that’s on the pre-rebate amount, so it’s 2% on either $750 or $400).

Canon D-Rebel T5i with 18-55 and Pixma PRO 100 and SG-201 paper for $600 after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC)

The Canon D-Rebel T5i remains one of a very few cameras with a cray-cray price-scheme. The body only goes for $650, while the kit with the 18-55mm lens goes for $600, in new condition, at authorized, reputable, MAP-blessed dealers. It’s not just now, it was also the case in the July APS-C Price Charts. So you are paying Canon a premium NOT to take their 18-55 lens? 🙂

Joking aside, the Canon D-Rebel T5 with 18-55 goes for $600 and if you are not afraid of mail-in rebates and prepaid AMEX gift cards, that’s the after rebate price you will pay if you buy the Adorama Printer Bundle of the D-Rebel T5i with 18-55 and Pixma PRO 100 and 50pk SG-201 13×19″ photo paper. You pay $950 at checkout, receive items, submit mail-in rebate, and a few weeks later you receive a $350 prepaid AMEX gift card, making it a $600 after MIR offer.

The Canon 7D II with the 18-135mm kit goes for $1850 at authorized dealers. If you are not afraid of mail-in rebates and prepaid AMEX gift cards, Adorama is offering the 7D II with 18-135mm and Pixma PRO 100 and Paper bundle for $1850 after a $350 mail-in rebate
(MIR; prepaid AMEX gift card). So the MIR makes the printer and the photo paper (the usual sidekick, 50pk SG-201 13×19 inch semi-gloss) FREE after rebate.

This too surfaced while price-checking for our in-progress November 2017 Price Chart Series.

The Canon G9 X compact with RAW (previous generation model – see Fixed Lens Camera Price Chart for a refresher on Canon’s G models) goes for $400 in new condition at authorized dealers, while the G9 X II goes for $450.

If you prefer the G9 X (first generation), AND you want the Canon PIXMA PRO 100 printer, AND you don’t object to doing mailing rebates and spending AMEX gift cards AND you still want to end up paying $400 out of pocket, then …

On the other hand, if you prefer the G9 X II with the PIXMA PRO 100 and paper promotion, you end up paying around $30 more [than the price of the G9X II alone] after rebate. In either black or brown, the G9 X II bundle is $479 after a $350 prepaid AMEX GC rebate.

PS: I have a feeling I could have written this post with fewer words but an attempt to optimize it typically results in 2-3 additional paragraphs 🙂
