Surprise coupon discount (10% or 20% or 30% off) at Stacksocial (ends tonight)

Good until midnight tonight (it doesn’t say pacific or eastern) [and midnight is a temporally inaccurate term but that’s what it says] coupon code SURPRISE gets you either 10% off or 20% off or 30% off at Stacksocial. The discount is revealed after you enter the coupon. Due to time-constraints I can’t check their current inventory before midnight, so this is a DIY YMMV adventure. You can use the search box over there to look for keywords of interest (eg camera, wordpress, adobe, photography, etc).

eBay Mobile App coupon: $5 off a $20+ order

In an email to registered users earlier today, eBay has a new promotion trying to encourage shoppers to download and use its mobile app. To make it so, the app will have a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $20+. The coupon must be used within the app. The terms say “Only invited, registered eBay users who receive the Coupon in My eBay are eligible”. Their email has more details on how to use it. I haven’t done this, so I don’t know what happens next…


20% off Olympus Outlet (refurbished) with coupon

The official Olympus Outlet store is having a Valentine/President sale, coupon code PRESIDENT gets you 20% off the current prices over there. These refurbished items come with a 90-day Olympus warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee (excluding shipping). Free shipping with orders of $100+. Offer ends 2/16/16 at 11:59pm ET.

With the coupon factored in the price, among the refurbished E-M cameras you can get the E-M10 body for $288, E-M10 w/14-42 for $320, E-M5 body for $384, E-M5 w/12-50 for $576, and the E-M5 II body for $576. Some are available in both black and silver.

The items mentioned above are factory reconditioned (refurbished) and the prices are AFTER the 20% off coupon is factored in. I did most of the math in my head, so the chances of 20% off math-errors are elevated. The prices drop after you add the item to the shopping cart and then you enter the coupon PRESIDENT at the Apply Coupon field further down the page.
