Camera Gear Rental Coupon: 10% to 25% off at BL

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 πŸ™‚

BorrowLenses: 10% to 30% off RENTALS coupon + FREE Memorial Day

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.

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).

50% off BorrowLenses memberships w/coupon

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 πŸ™‚
