HTC RE camera for $100 with coupon

ORIGINAL POST: The Uncarrier is selling cameras too. For a limited time only, coupon code HALFOFF gets you the HTC RE camera [corrected link] (PEZ dispenser action camera) for $100 instead of its regular price. An exhaustive list of compatible devices is shown below the product description over there. The Uncarrier being T-Mobile. Personal delivery by John Legere NOT included 🙂

CAUTION: magenta overload at the aforelinked page – calibrate your monitors to prevent magenta burn-in 😉

ENDED: UPDATE: For Saturday 9/19/15, you can get it for $100 with a free HTC RE bar as one of the Best Buy Daily Deals

Pre-order new $50 7-inch Amazon tablet (buy 5, get 1 FREE with coupon), $100 4K Fire TV, and more [all come with microSD slots]

If you are part of the Amazon ecosystem, they just announced a bunch of new products which you can find nicely organized on their home page. Of bang for the buck interest, their new 7-inch 8GB Fire Tablet with Special Offers goes for $50. But you can get it for less. If you buy six of them, and enter coupon code FIRE6PACK in the shopping cart, you only pay for five of them ($250 instead of $300 – comes out to $42.67 per tablet). Beer is not the only thing sold in six packs 😉

UPDATE/NOTE: the $50 tablet only has a 90 day warranty. You can buy additional extended warranty for $10 (one year) or slightly $more$ for additional years.

Of photography interest, the new Fire TV with Alexa now supports 4K and has 2GB RAM, 8GB on-board and takes microSD cards (up to 128GB). [also available in a gamer’s bundle with controller for $140].

The other of photography potentially interesting item is their largest screen tablet yet, a 10-inch Fire HD (16GB on-board, microSD slot (up to 128GB), 1280 x 800, Special Offers) for $230.

Yes, a big victory for microSD fans today. All Amazon’s new tablets (7-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, Kids Edition) and their new 4K Fire TV take microSD cards (up to 128GB). Now if they could only convince stubborn Google 🙂

Prime members in Los Angeles & Orange County areas: $20 off a $50+ Prime Now order

Prime members in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas have a new Prime benefit going live, the Prime Now service. To celebrate the launch, Amazon offers coupon code LATRYNOW to get $20 off an order of $50+. This can be particularly good if you are buying items that have the same prices at all authorized dealers. The coupon is good for physical items sold and shipped by Amazon itself. I am not in a Prime Now area yet, so I can’t test it and tell you more about it. Details and terms and conditions at the Amazon Prime Now page.

PS: that page also mentions coupon code TRYITNOW that’s also $20 off a $50+ order. I don’t know if you can use them both, on separate orders, or stack them. I can’t test this, so this is DIY YMMV.

PS2: Prime Now is purchasing regular Amazon items. It should not be confused with AmazonFresh (fresh foods and groceries) or Prime Pantry (someone’s twisted idea of a virtual Costco).

25% off at AdoramaPix with coupon

Coupon code APX25 gets you 25% off any order placed at AdoramaPix.com [corrected]. The coupon is good until 9/15/15. Free shipping on orders of $39 or more.
