Zeiss Lens Sale (68 options) [C/N/E/X/M]

[DEAD?] Canon SL2 Body for $314, with 18-55 STM for $384 [ends 5:30pm ET] {Prime Deal}

UPDATE 9am eastern: it looks like this deal is over. It either sold out or ended. It didn’t have a ticking clock or percentage-claimed like most lightning deals do. It was one of those semi-daily type of deals that usually appear during the holidays and on special events like Prime Day. I will monitor the situation and post an update if it returns…

ORIGINAL POST
A Salt Lake Rebel? That’s what the Canon SL-series stands for? Anyway good until 5:30pm ET on Tuesday (or earlier if sold out) you can get the new condition Canon SL2 body only for $314 in the black color scheme, and in either the black or the white color scheme you can get the new condition Canon SL2 with 18-55 EF-S STM lens for $384…

These was an unannounced deal, as it is often the case when the Gold Box has name-brand and high-value type of products. Otherwise everyone will be sitting on their PC waiting and it will all be gone within 60 seconds ๐Ÿ™‚

These too are part of the Prime Day deals. If you are not a Prime member and you must have it, you can always start a free 30-day Prime Trial and leave a note/alert in your calendar to cancel before the expiration. Although what Amazon is counting on is that you are gonna get hooked on the free 2-day delivery and the music and video streaming services and the ebook reading services and the million (seemingly) other Prime Benefits

NOTE that the SL2 is now the “previous generation” model. The Canon SL3 is the latest model which goes for $550 body only or $650 with the 18-55 lens. Almost twice the price.

For a limited time, Adorama is offering the Canon D-Rebel T6 two lens kit with Pixma PRO 100 bundle for $299 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card). That’s quite the bundle if you don’t object dealing with the mail-in rebate and the prepaid AMEX gift card. You get:

+ Canon D-Rebel T6 with 18-55 IS II and 75-300/4.5-6 III lenses
+ Pixma PRO 100 printer, and its trusty sidekick, the 50pk of 13×19″ photo paper.

Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 and $105 Kohls Cash for $400 [or buy filler item for $15 more Kohls Cash]

This offer is primarily of interest to fans of the KOHLS department stores, or anyone who does not object to shopping there to spend the rewards. For this offer, you must be part of the KOHLS rewards program or be willing to join it. It is free to join.

The offer is this. For every $50 you purchase, you earn $15 in Kohls rewards. Despite the name “Kohl’s Cash” this is not real cash, but virtual money you can spend sort of like cash at Kohls stores. Thus if you are a regular shopper there, it’s a good deal.

Which brings us to the Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 which sells for $399.99. As it is, it earns $105 in Kohls rewards. But if you add any filler item priced $0.01+, your total goes to $400+, thus you earn an additional $15 in Kohls rewards. Kohls sells a gazillion of things, including many small trinkets, so it shouldn’t be hard to find some little thing to add.

So for Kohls Rewards members, this is sort of like paying $280 for this DSLR kit ~ again, assuming you have no problem spending the Kohls rewards on things you want/need. Between rewards and coupons and special promotions, you can get some really good deals at Kohls – if you have the time/energy/interest to chase these things ~ the chances of which increase if you are reading this sentence!

PRO TIP: you can rinse and repeat this type of a promotion with any other camera of interest that is carried by Kohls. Kohls is no B&H, so selection is pretty limited, eg popular instant cameras, basic P&S, etc…
