The new condition Case Logic DCB-304 Compact System/Hybrid Camera Case is currently on sale for the very specific price of $6.94 with a limit of up to five units per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. It averages 4.4 out of 5 based on 5300+ customer reviews. Check those, product description, gallery and answered questions to get a good feel of what may or may not fit inside.
That $6.94 price looks very familiar, it is also the price for the new condition AmazonBasics Holster Camera Case, with a limit of three per customer. So Amazon is using AmazonBasics to price-match other sales on their website. This is inception level of Price Bots Gone Wild 🙂
Both items are ADD-ON items, so you must needs place a $25+ order, elsewise their shopping cart will NYET any attempts at checkout. Four of these are enough to get you to $25+, or you can use any combination of other eligible products.
For other ideas to get to $25+:
+ AmazonBasics Medium DSLR Gadget Bag (orangina) for $15
+ round-up of other ADD-ONsy items

This missed the window for yesterday’s Bag The Bags segment but it may not last long enough for the next edition, so here it is. It is the Case Logic DCB-304 compact case on sale for $11 at Target (free store pickup a possibility) and Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself where it averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 3700+ customer reviews and has 530+ questions answered. 530 questions for an $11 camera bag? I thought I was OCD 🙂
No one offers unconditional free shipping, but depending on the retailer and your location you may get free store pickup (eg Target), or the order total (Target $25+, B&H $49+, Amazon $35+) or membership status (Prime gets free 2-day).
A new week is here and Fry’s has a new round of promo code offers for email subscribers (free to join their email list) for the week of Sept 20-26 (2015). Some offers are good in-store, some online, some at both places. The default in our post is both places unless otherwise indicated. Of potential chimera and photon interest:
+ refurbished Panasonic ZS35 with card and case for $100 (in-store only; limit 1)
+ Case Logic Luminosity DSLR + tablet backpack (DSB-101-BLACK) for $50 (limit 1)
+ Manfrotto Compact Advanced Tripod (MKCOMPACTADV-B) for $60 (limit 1)
+ eMatic 720p Action Camera for $30 (in-store only; limit 1)

To average down the four figure prices of the all-new Zeiss Milvus lenses, we have the return of the “$5 Gadget”. For $3.19 with free shipping for all, you can get the black Case Logic TBC-302 camera case, sold and shipped by Amazon itself in frustration-free packaging (typically ships in sturdy cardboard box which you can re-use for other projects). You don’t have to be a Prime member to get free shipping on this one. Limit three per customer. Only this color scheme is on sale.
In yet another twist of the Amazon free shipping labyrinth, this is not eligible for Prime shipping benefits, even though it is sold and shipped by Amazon, and it ships for FREE. And it is not part of the Add-On program. Amazon needs to maintain a live flowchart to help us keep track of the various free shipping twists 🙂
Eagled-eyed readers may have noticed a familiarity with the case. Indeed, it looks very very similar to the previously mentioned AmazonBasics tiny case, which is now down to $1.80. This is part of the Add-On program, so you must place a $25+ order to buy it (regardless of Prime status). I don’t have the Case Logic version, but I have the AmazonBasics case, and it is very small (eg for small/thin P&S digital cameras; see earlier long post). At this rate, I will soon be launching the brand new “$5 Camera Case blog” 🙂
The new Fry’s has aligned their weekly ads with the retail store standard (Sunday AM to Saturday PM), so the Sunday email promo codes include the weekly offers. In this case, these are good until Saturday 9/12/15 PM or earlier if sold out. Of potential chimera and photon interest:
+ Case Logic KDB-101BK Konstrast Pro DSLR backpack for $60 (limit 1)
+ Canon MG-6220 AiO Photo printer for $65 (limit 1)
+ various storage options (flash drives, HDDs, SSDs, DVD-Rs, etc)
+ Vanguard ALTA PRO 263AB 100 Tripod for $130 (limit 1; in-store only)
+ 32GB Monster C10 UHS-1 SDXC for $9 (limit 2; in-store only)

A new week is here, and so are new weekly promo codes at Frys. You need the promo codes that are personally generated for each subscriber to their emailing list. The offers below expire late on Saturday 9/5/15 or earlier if the Force Awakens or if they sell out… Of potential camera and photo interest:
+ Case Logic SLRC-206 SLR Camera and Laptop Backpack for $45 (limit 1)
++ Amazon only partially price-matched this, it goes for $55 there
++ speaking of Case Logic, the Case Logic DCB-309 (different model) is on sale for $51 at Amazon
+ 61-inch Vanguard ESPOD CX 203AGH tripod for $50 (limit 1; in-store only)
+ various flash drives, microSDs, etc

The small Case Logic TBC-302 FFP compact camera case in black is currently on sale for $2.89 each, in new condition, with a limit of three per customer, by Amazon herself. This ships in frustration free packaging (that’s the FFP in the model name). As of the time of writing, this is not part of the Add-On program, so if you are a Prime member, you can get free 2-day shipping. If not, you have the usual free S&H with a $35+ qualifying order. It averages 4.3/5 based on 2600+ reviews over there. It could also be handy in storing flash drives, memory cards, batteries, and other small accessories.
Speaking of sales, if you are fond of the Android Google Play ecosystem, the Nexus Player by ASUS is on sale for $77 at Amazon by Amazon itself.
