A new 3-day lens gear rental coupon is now up and running at Borrow Lenses! Their emails do a great job of explaining the offer visually, so here’s a screenshot of it, a more efficient way of describing it than me writing a seven paragraph bloviation 🙂
If you are near a participating Samy’s Camera brick and mortar store, they have a new Labor Day weekend promotion. You can pick up a rental during the weekend, return by Tuesday 9/5/17 at 11am local time and pay for ONLY ONE DAY. Details and more questions on their Twitter:
Borrow Lenses is back with another camera gear RENTAL coupon, it’s a Spend More, to Save More type of a promotion, The more you spend, the bigger the discount percentage, with discounts ranging from 10% to 25% as outlined in the annotated screenshot of their promotion below (much easier to explain like this than me writing a five paragraph post about it):
BorrowLenses is back with another coupon, this coupon gets you 17% off the rental of camera gear, with the relevant details in the screenshot below:
And now to our monthly medium format post 🙂 If you are near a Samy’s Camera store, they are running rental specials on Phase One systems. Details in their tweet, also embedded below:
BorrowLenses is back with another coupon promotion for gear rentals. This is a “the more you rent, the more you save” type of a promotion, with the discount ranging from 10% to 25% depending on the total rental amount. The Borrow Lenses email describing the promotion is very well-done, self-explanatory, I need not say anything else. I wish all retailers were half as clear and concise in describing their offers 🙂
If you need a camera gear rental yesterday, Borrow Lenses has launched a limited time flash sale as outlined in the annotated screenshot below:
BorrowLenses are celebrating their 10 years (time sure does fly, they’ve been around for ten years!) and to celebrate, they have a new coupon promotion that gets you 10% to 30% off gear rentals. The coupon percentage increases as the rental order price increases. Also, if your rental period includes Memorial Day (May 29), you will get that day for FREE automatically (their computer system will adjust it automatically).
Everything is explained in this annotated screenshot from their email. If I tried to explain it all with words, it would take ten paragraphs instead of three 🙂
Good until 5/8/17, BorrowLenses is offering 50% off on their three membership plans with the coupon code shown below in the self-explanatory screenshot below:
Annual memberships existed for a long time, with Costco, Sam’s Club, Price Club and others offering them through the years, but the emergence of Amazon Prime made memberships sexy again, with more retailers joining the party including NewEgg, Adorama, Walmart (pre-Jet), and even services like ShopRunner (you may be eligible for a free membership for this through your AMEX credit card). So depending on how much and how you often you rent from BL, this offer maybe beneficial. Of course the free shipping will likely have the Prime-effect, where you will be more likely to borrow things because of the free shipping. That new tilt-shift lens looks tempting 🙂
To celebrate Earth Day, Borrow Lenses has a new coupon, 20% off rentals of camera gear with the following deadlines as shown in the screenshot below that explains it better and faster than I could with words ~ because one I go past a single sentence, then posts get longer and longer and longer as I add more and more text as disambiguations or parallels or other tidbits or attempts at joking or other meta commentary 🙂
