Hardcover: used National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary for $12.50 w/free S&H
UPDATE: the new condition price jumped to $27…
As far as I can tell the undying Amazon book coupon GIFTBOOK finally expired, but it doesn’t hurt to type it in just in case 🙂 Regardless, the October 2015 hardcover of National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary is on sale for $21.75 with the usual free shipping terms (Prime or $25+ in books or $49+ in general; of items shipped by Amazon).
It is currently the best seller among Photojournalism Books.
On the other hand, if you are comfortable with used photography books (a bigger risk than text-only books since pristine photography is the raison d^etre of a photography books) you can get it for $12.50 with free slow shipping by eBay seller “BookOutlet2” (99.4%, New Jersey zipcode).
If you are a fan of Toshiba storage, trending at the Trending eBay Deals, eBay seller “RefurbForLess” (98.7%, California) is offering new condition 64GB Toshiba U362 USB 3.0 Retractable Flash Drive for $13.50 with free shipping.

If you are collecting printers, or need a low budget model (assuming you can also get good prices on the inks) or if you simply need a printer to take advantage of trade-in promotions, there are a couple of sub-$20 shipped offers for the white Canon MG-2520 printer at the eBay Deals. Both of the models mentioned below come WITHOUT an ink cartridge. You can’t print with them unless you buy/use your own inks.
NewEgg’s eBay store is offering them in seller-refurbished condition for $13 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer. I am not sure how they do this, since the printers are not exactly lightweight like a greeting card 🙂 There is no mention of warranty in the NewEgg listing.
The listing by eBay seller “Always.Deals” (98.4%, New Jersey) on the other hand, lists this as an “Open Box” with a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Canon USA), going for $17~ with free shipping with a limit of up to 50 per customer. This is non-returnable.
TL;DR for the high-speed readers. The above offers DO NOT INCLUDE INK! You can’t print with these unless you buy or use your own inks. There are no inks in the box.
A doorbuster in the Trending eBay Deals, eBay seller “PhotoVideo4Less” (99.9%, ships from New York) is offering the new condition 8GB Sandisk Ultra 8GB Class 10 SDHC memory card for $3.49 with free shipping, with a limit of up to 50 units per customer.

Limit up to three cards per customer.
The previously mentioned Lowepro Genera 10 jumped from $0.99 to $3.49 as of the time of writing, but fear not, the eBay Deals have more doorbusters, the Best Buy eBay store is offering the new condition Lowepro Ridge 30 Camera Bag (Arctic Blue) for $2 with free shipping (or free store pickup) with a limit of up to five bags per customer.

A doorbuster in the eBay trending deals, the new official Ritz Camera eBay store is offering the Lowepro Geneva 10 Camera Bag for $3.49
$0.99 with free shipping (ships from New Jersey). You can buy as many as you want. Over 2700 units sold so far.
PS: yes, you are reading right, it is $0.99 with free shipping! This is a small bag – that’s a small orange camera that’s shown in the pictures.
PS2: this is a very consumer-friendly way for a retailer to advertise themselves – give people freebies instead of wasting money on annoying ads 🙂
PS3: while we are on the topic of bags, this one not camera-related, the Samsonite Classic Three Gusset Lg Toploader Briefcase goes for $24 at Amazon by Amazon itself, with a limit of up to three per customer, with the usual free shipping terms.

Limit five gift cards per buyer.
This specific offer ended but it returns on a recurring basis…
The used Fuji X-T2 eBay Auction ended on Wednesday at 8:30pm with a price of $1476 + $10 flat shipping with a total of 32 bids. A trio of bids came in at the last 30 seconds of the auction, increasing the price from $1400 to $1476… Previous updates after the jump for historical reference…

To the Trending eBay Deals we return where the official Google eBay store is offering the new condition second generation Google Chromecast (non-4K) for $25 with free shipping and a 3-month free trial to HBO Now. Limit five units per customer, but the HBO trials are not stackable on the same account or same device. The HBO Now trials are good for new subscribers on new devices only.
The second generation model came out in 2015, see fund-raising Wikipedia to untangle the various Chromecast versions. You can now send (okay, “cast” or whatever word du jour Google is using these days) a lot of things using it, so many ways to digitally flick your photography and videography to the nearest (bigger) screen.
Speaking of HBO, if you are part of the Amazon Prime/Instant-Video ecosystem, you can now sign-up for an HBO subscription through Amazon Instant Video. It comes with a 30-day free trial.

As of Tuesday at 1:12am ET, it is at $1414 with 12 bids… The used options with a 3-year warranty by Cardinal Photo got scooped up, while the Olympus E-M1 II remains not in-stock (the best way to describe it).
This limited time offer expired…

On the other hand, if you prefer a model with the blessings of Nikon USA, you can get it in manufacturer-refurbished with 90-day Nikon USA for $270 with free shipping by Adorama.
I just updated the Stock Status Tracker. On the Fuji X-T2 body, an eBay Auction is currently in progress with a current price of $1250 and 6 bids but the auction ends on Tuesday at 12:42pm eastern, which is an eternity for auctions. This is described as “New Other” with the original box not included. This is by an individual eBay seller with 100% feedback.
On the other hand, if you are comfortable with used storage, you can get this in used condition for $279 plus shipping (under $15 for most zipcodes) at Adorama.
Speaking of storage, the NewEgg eBay store is offering the new condition 3TB TOSHIBA Canvio Basics Portable Hard Drive (USB 3.0 Model HDTB330XK3CA Black) for $100 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer.

Back to the eBay Deals where batteries are included! The official Best Buy eBay store is offering new condition 24-packs of Rayovac AA single use batteries for $5.89 with free shipping or free store pickup. Limit up to thirty 24-packs per customer. This averages to around 4 batteries per $1.
There are many other battery promotions in progress, including the 1c Duracell Rewards offer at Office Max/Depot, a 60pk of Rayovacs for $10 at Home Depot stores and 72pks of Sony Stamina at Woot, and such.
All the batteries above are single-use, but on the rechargeable front, the newer precharged 8-pack of AA AmazonBasics continues to go for $16.89. Meanwhile the previous generation (from the looks of it) 12pk of AAA rechargeables goes for $13.
And now a flash drive doorbuster at the eBay Deals, eBay seller “Refurb for Less” (98.8%, California) is offering the new condition [PRO TIP: choose your eBay names carefully!] 32GB Toshiba USB 3.0 Flash Drive (model PFU032U-1BRG) for $11 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer.
This is a retractable flash drive, not a detachable. The one picture there is confusing, you may think it’s a tiny thing like the Sandisk Ultra Fit, but it’s not. Look at the pictures further down the description at Amazon to get a better feel of its size and shape and usage.
The Nikon D750 body only goes for $1800 at authorized dealers who include various free accessories (eg Adorama) but if you are comfortable with higher-risk imported items…

Over 400 units got sold from this listing so far per the eBay data over there. Note that Lytro is out of the consumer camera business!
Another eBay Bucks promotion was rolled out earlier today by eBay. As usual with these, they are YMMV because I don’t know if they sent this to everyone or a subset of the eBay users. This current iteration is 8% eBay Bucks with no minimum purchase required. The standard eBay Bucks percentage is 2%. As usual, you have to manually activate the offer (press a button in the email or eBay message/app), and you are good to go. The offer ends on Wednesday at 11:59pm Pacific time. The usual restrictions apply.
A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.
