Fry’s Black Friday Ads reveal B&M Doorbuster Canon DSLR two-lens kit for $299

Black Friday has revealed almost all of their Black Friday offers at their Weekly Ads page. The only thing missing are the early AM Thanksgiving offers that will be revealed by email to their newsletter subscribers. Their stores are closed on Thanksgiving, so the Thursday offers will be online-only. I integrated the existing offers into our everlong 2017 Black Friday Ads Digest

And that’s the key, the vast majority of both in-store and online offers require the use of personalized promo code that each customer receives in their emails every time Fry’s runs a promotion. So if you are interested in most of these offers, make sure you sign up for their emailing list.

Their big doorbuster is reversed for Black Friday at their B&M stores, an unspecified Canon DSLR two lens kit with the 18-55 and 75-300 lenses. This is the teaser from the middle of this ad page:

SPOILERS below if you want to guess on your own, or if you want to surprised in store. It is most likely the Canon D-Rebel T6 with 18-55 and 75-300 which is an official Black Friday deal for $450 at various B&M dealers that have already posted their ad. It matches the $450 price, along with the 1080p and Wifi and 18-megapixels and NFC.

And the fact that there is no other Canon DSLR that would go this low 🙂

As you can see from the ad, this will be offered on Black Friday only, at their brick and mortar stores only, with one per customer. You need to have your personal promo code from the Fry’s email newsletter of that day.

If you are interested in this, I highly suggest finding members of your local football team and asking them to be your offensive and defensive line while attempting to get this deal in-store 🙂

(SOLD OUT) Used Canon 7D II Body for $949 + S&H

As of a 11/16/17 AM recheck, this sold out at the $399 price. Supplies of used cameras are limited so they run out differently than new condition prices. Also prices are more volatile since they depend on more factors…

The new condition Canon 7D II body only goes for $1500 in new condition at authorized dealers, or for an extra $20 you can do the Pixma PRO 100 mail-in rebate bundle at B&H Photo. But if you want to pay triple figures and you are comfortable with used…

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? 🙂

Tamron 12-28mm f4 PRO APS-C for $199 [Canon]

It looks like Amazon has price-matched the B&H offer. As of the time of writing, you can get the new condition Tamron 12-28mm f4 PRO APS-C lens in the Canon mount for $199 with free shipping, sold and shipped by Amazon itself. Maximum three lenses per customer.

It is currently in “temporarily out of stock” status, so shipping date is up in the air, but you can lock the $199 price if you like it.

Imported Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The new condition Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens bundled with some free accessories goes for $1100 at authorized dealers such as Adorama. But if you want to save a lot and you are comfortable with imported grey-market, then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition imported grey-market for $690 with free shipping in the Canon mount or the Nikon mount.

Limit five per mount per customer. Between them they sold over 800 units.

Warranty-wise, if you are buying in Canada, you get a 6-year Tamron Canada warranty. If you are buying elsewhere, you get the 1-year Tamron International warranty. So it’s a lot shorter than the Tamron USA warranty. That’s one of the reasons why the price is lower. They are a Canadian seller but the eBay listing says they ship from various locations in the USA.
