Since it is sold by the DJI store, you get the manufacturer warranty. Limit five bundles per customer.

Refurbished Nikon 55-200mm DX VR II w/1yr seller warranty for $100

Back to the eBay Deals where the Cameta Camera eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon 55-200mm f4-5.6G DX VR II for $100 with free shipping. As usual with refurbished Nikon gear at Cameta, they come with a 1-year warranty from Cameta, not a 90-day warranty from Nikon.

YMMV eBay Bucks: 6% to 10% depending on purchase price

It looks like we may have a pattern here. The ebay coupon expired last night, and lo and behold, a new eBay Bucks promotion is running today. So they may be alternating? I’ll pay attention to see if this is an on-going pattern…

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Friday 3am eastern (6/23/17), you earn eBay Bucks on your purchases depending on the item purchase price. Items over $50 get 10% eBay Bucks, items between $25 to $50 get 8%, and items under $25 get 6%.

First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

One great way to take advantage of this promotion is the new condition factory unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Midnight Black) offered for $700 with free shipping by Samsung’s official eBay store. No contract, no obligation to any carrier, and you can use it on all four major US carriers (Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon) and their assorted sub-carriers (MetroPCS, Cricket, etc) and MVNOs (Page, Republic, TPO, etc). 10% of $700 = $70 in eBay Bucks to be spent in future eBay purchases!

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.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Archive posts.

Canon Pixma PRO 10 printer for $340 w/free S&H [without UPC on the box!]

Back to the eBay Deals with a de-UPC printer. That’s a printer whose UPC was removed from the box but it is otherwise unused/unopened. Most likely printers purchased using the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebates but not needed by their original owners and sold to others.

So if you don’t want to deal with the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebates and AMEX gift cards, you can get a new condition de-UPC’ed Canon Pixma PRO 10 printer for $340 with free shipping by eBay seller “Electronic City Inc” (99.3%, New York). Limit five per buyer.

This is a higher risk than buying new condition with UPC intact from authorized dealers, so it’s up to you to decide where you draw the line on risk and convenience (not having to deal with mail-in rebates (MIR) and/or gift cards). But if you prefer the lower risk approach, you can get it for $450 after a $250 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC) at B&H Photo.

Olympus TG-870 waterproof P&S for $250 w/free S&H

To the eBay Deals we go where the official Best Buy eBay store is offering the new condition Olympus TG-870 waterproof P&S camera for $250 with free shipping with a limit of up to three per customer. Its regular price is $280.

Speaking of eBay, continuing is the 8GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC card, model SDSDUN-008G-G46, for $7 with free shipping from Ritz Camera’s eBay store (98.9%, New Jersey).

UPDATE: speaking of eBay also, the official NewEgg eBay store is offering the new condition Playstation PS4 PlayStation VR – Standalone for $300 with free shipping when you do the “add to cart” song and dance.

Ends Tue PM: eBay Coupon: 20% off select items priced $25+ from 40 sellers

UPDATE: OOPS! This expires Tuesday night, not Monday 🙂

eBay is back with another coupon promotion and this new one is running until June 20 at 11:59pm pacific time. Coupon code PSUMMER20 gets you 20% off select products priced $25+ individually from 40 different eBay sellers, including Beach Camera, Ritz Cameras, eBags, Sky Mall, Samsonite, and more. You can find details on the promotion and eligible sellers at the Promotional page over there.

The maximum discount with the coupon is $50, meaning items priced over $250 will get a flat $50 off discount (20% of $250) instead of 20% off the total amount. You can use the categories on the left hand side over there to filter by categories.

PS: CORRECTED: the coupon expires June 20, not June 209 🙂

Imported Panasonic GH5 Body w/1-Year Seller Warranty for $1839

More developments since the previous time we updated the Stock Status Tracker, the new condition imported grey-market Panasonic GH5 body with a 1-year seller warranty is down from $1883 to $1839 by eBay seller “6ave” (99%, New Jersey).

6TB WD External HDD (USB 3.0) for $150

Storage and options are increasing in desktop external hard drives, and if you prefer the 6TB size, the new condition Western Digital MyBook Desktop External Hard Drive (USB 3, model WDBBGB0060HBK-NESN) is on sale for $150 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself and by Best Buy on eBay (limit three as well).

4TB Seagate Expansion Desktop External HDD USB 3.0 for $100

As I am preaching the importance of backups, I am realizing that I am behind on my backups too 🙂 Which brings us to an external desktop USB 3.0 hard drive sale, it is the new condition 4TB Seagate Expansion Desktop External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STEB4000100) on sale for $100 with free shipping by NewEgg on eBay (limit five per customer) and at Amazon by Amazon itself.

PS: if buying on eBay, don’t forget the 10% eBay Bucks promotion if you are eligible. It expires at 3am ET on Saturday.

YMMV: 10% eBay Bucks (no minimum purchase)

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Saturday 3am eastern (6/17/17), you earn 10% eBay Bucks on your purchases. This time around there is no minimum purchase price per item. Even $1 items earn the bonus. First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

One great way to take advantage of this promotion is the new condition factory unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Midnight Black) offered for $700 with free shipping by Samsung’s official eBay store.

8GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC for $7 with free S&H [and more eBay action]

To the eBay Deals we go where the Ritz Cameras eBay store is offering the new condition 8GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC card, model SDSDUN-008G-G46, for $7 with free shipping (from New Jersey). You can buy as many as you like. You get free shipping whether you buy one memory card or a trillion.

Speaking of eBay, if you want baseball caps to color match your shooting location, a variety of colors is offered for $6 with free shipping each. They ship from New Jersey. They have almost 30 different color schemes. They are the typical one size fits all. Details and size charts further down the product description.

Meanwhile the official Google eBay store is offering new condition Chromecast devices for $30 with free shipping, with a limit of up to five units per customer.

Factory Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ for $700 with USA warranty

The official Samsung eBay store (yes, almost everyone is on eBay these days), is offering the factory unlocked new condition Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Plus; the larger model), model SM-G955U, in the Midnight Black color scheme, with 64GB on-board storage, for $700 with free shipping and a Samsung USA warranty. Limit up to five per customer.

You own the phone and you can use it on any carrier, it is one of only a few smartphones that are what I call “uber carrier”, they work with all four major USA carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) and their various MVNOs. There are many benefits to getting an unlocked no-contract phone, but historically Samsung has not been giving their previous unlocked flagship phones OS updates as fast as they did the carrier-branded ones. There’s only one unlocked color at the moment.

On the other hand, if you want an “uber carrier” phone without breaking the bank, B&H Photo comes to the rescue! They offer the Motorola Moto G (4th Generation) for $160 in the 2GB RAM / 16 GB storage) option, or for $200 you can get a better value/performance combo with the 4GB / 64 GB storage. RAM being the more important factor as you have a lot more flexibility in terms of multi-tasking and using big apps.

YMMV: 8% eBay Bucks on $50+ items

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Sunday 3am eastern (6/11/17), you earn 8% eBat Bucks on items individually priced $50+. You have to manually activate the offer first from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate).

eBay hearts coupon promotions these days and a new one is running until June 9 at 11:59pm pacific time.

Refurbished Nikon D7200 Body w/90-day warranty for $650

The new Nikon D7500 APS-C DSLR is now in-stock and shipping for $1250 as a body-only, but if you prefer to pay half of that and get a previous generation model, then to the eBay Deals we go…

… where the Buydig eBay store (99%, New Jersey) is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $650 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. Limit five units per customer.

Strategically, this is not an unreasonable strategy. Once a model is no longer “the latest model”, going for a manufacturer refurbished ~ as long as it has a solid discount over the new-condition ~ is a good way to make the most of your $$$. As long as you are comfortable with refurbished and such.

Imported Canon 5D Mark IV Body Only w/1-YR Seller Warranty for $2800

The Canon 5D Mark IV body only goes for $3300 at authorized dealers which are allowed to offer a variety of free accessories, for example, various sellers at Amazon or B&H Photo (4TB HDD, 64GB SDXC), but if you are comfortable with imported grey-market DSLRs…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Electronics Valley” (99.7%, New Jersey) is offering an imported grey-market Canon 5D Mark IV body only with a 1-year seller warranty (not Canon USA) for $2800 with free shipping. Limit three units per buyer.

240GB SanDisk Extreme 500 USB 3.0 Portable SSD for $90

While at eBay Deals, the NewEgg eBay store is offering the new condition 240GB SanDisk Extreme 500 USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive for $90 with free shipping.

Pay $85, Get $100 Sears Gift Card (email delivery; limit 5 per customer)

Sears sells camera gear on its own, but also featured a number of 3rd-party sellers on its website as well, a group of well-known camera retailers that you also see on eBay and Amazon and NewEgg and Worst Buy. If interested in Sears purchases (of any kind, not just cameras), to the eBay Deals we go…

… where PayPal’s Digital Gifts is offering $100 Sears Gift Cards (delivered by email) for $85 with free delivery. Limit five per customer while this promotion is running. The math is easy, it is a 15% off discount on the gift card, thus, a 15% off discount on everything you buy using the discounted gift cards 🙂 This is a limited time offer!

The new condition Sony Alpha a7R II currently goes for $2700 at authorized Sony dealers, some of which are bundling it with free extras, for example, free Lightroom 6 at Adorama or free accessories bundle at Adorama (including Corel software)…

… but if you are comfortable with imported camera gear, to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Department_Store_NYC” (99.2%, New York) is offering the imported grey-market Sony a7r II body only with a 1-year seller warranty (not Sony USA warranty) for $2200 with free shipping. Limit three units per customer.

In-Stock now: Fuji X100F for $1300 [also, auction by “real person” in progress]

It is pure coincidence that I’m updating the Stock Status Tracker on Mondays, it’s supposed to get updated a lot more often, but time seems to fly faster and faster these days. Anyway, enough meta-talk, to the Fuji X100F-landia we go…

… where the Best Buy’s eBay store has the silver X100F in-stock for $1300. Limit three per buyer per the listing page.

On the black X100F front, Amazon itself has a May 18 in-stock estimate as of the time of writing. Keep in mind these estimates change over time…

If you are a Prime member and pay with either the Chase Amazon VISA credit card or the Prime Store credit card, you will receive 5% back as a statement credit, which is no small change, it is $65~ given the current price.

If you are not a Prime member, and you pay with the Chase Amazon VISA credit card you get 3% back as a statement credit, around $39. Citibank’s Forward credit card used to offer 5% on Amazon, but unless you are in a grandfathered card that wasn’t switched over, they no longer offer it (as far as I can tell).

USED OPTION
On the other hand, if you are a fan of buying used from eBay, an individual has a USED (eBay Auction) that ends on Tuesday at 10:30pm ET. As of the time of writing, the auction price is $1125 with 29 bids. Shipping is $12 from the state of MA.

(ENDED) Auction Watch: Fuji X100F ends 12:08pm ET today

This auction ended with someone scooping it up towards the end, 15 bids and a $1200 price… If you need some eBay auction entertainment/excitment, ending today at 12:08pm ET is a classic eBay auction by an individual seller on the Fuji X100F silver. As of 10:55am ET, there are 14 bids with a $1175 price. The individual eBay seller (100%, 65 ratings) is based in Los Angeles.

This used option sold out as well: There is a “Used – Like New” option for $1202 by Amazon Warehouse Deals with a detailed condition and half a dozen pictures of the actual item (click on one of the two thumbnails to see the gallery).

The new condition price of the X100F at authorized dealers is $1300. For more options, check the Stock Status Tracker where there is one retailer that has both colors for $1300. The listing says they ship from the USA, but the seller’s page says they are in Hong Kong. I haven’t tried to go through with a purchase to see what happens [poor blogger!]

YMMV 8% eBay Bucks on $50+ items (ends Sun PM)

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Sunday night (5/7/17 at 11:59pm pacific), you earn 8% on $50+ items purchased during this promotional period. Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

eBay could do a better job describing these promotions in the emails since they do not clearly outline the difference between a “$50+ item” and a “$50+ purchase”. The former is clear that it has to be reached with a single item. The latter is confusing since eBay now has a proper shopping cart and you can reach $50+ with 100 $0.50 widgets. I’m assuming this promotion is for the former (individual items priced $50+ individually).

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.

Imported Sony a6300 w/16-50 w/1yr seller warranty for $850

The new condition Sony a6300 with 16-50mm goes for $1000 at authorized Sony dealers (eg Adorama and Amazon), however if you are comfortable with imported cameras…

… to the eBay Deals where the 6ave eBay store (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the imported grey-market Sony a6300 with 16-50mm for $850 with free shipping. It comes with a 1-year warranty from the seller (6ave), not from Sony USA. Limit three per buyer.

eBay coupon: 20% off purchase of $25+ (max discount $50)

eBay has launched another limited time coupon, coupon code PERFECTSTART gets you 20% off on purchases of $25+. The maximum discount is $50, other words, if the price is over $250, you get a flat $50 discount instead of 20%. Coupon expires May 4th in 2017.

Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 and 75-300 and PIXMA PRO 100 printer and 50pk 13×19″ paper for $350 after $350 MIR (AMEX GC)

To the eBay Deals we go, where friends of mail-in rebates and prepaid American Express gift cards can get the new condition Canon D-Rebel T6 bundle with the 18-55 and 75-300 lenses, along with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer and 50pk 13×19″ sidekick photo paper for $350 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card). BuyDig is the seller, authorize Canon dealers.

Imported Fuji X-T2 body w/1yr seller warranty for $1280

The Fuji X-T2 body only goes for $1600 in new condition at authorized dealers [see Stock Status Tracker], but if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras that get a seller’s warranty (instead of a Fuji USA warranty), then off to the eBay Deals we go…

… where 6ave’s eBay store (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Fuji X-T2 body only for $1280 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller 6ave. Limit up to three units per customer.

Imported Nikon D7200 w/18-140 DX VR w/1yr seller warranty for $900

The Nikon D7200 is no longer the “latest model” in the D7X0 line, the D7500 was announced a few days and it is currently available for pre-order for $1250 as body only – check Stock Status Tracker.

In new condition, it currently goes for $1000 as body only or $1300 with the 18-104mm lens at various authorized dealers, such as Adorama or Amazon or B&H Photo.

However, one school of thought is that once a “newer model” is revealed, it may be a good idea to buy the previous models as refurbished or used or grey-market, to save money on the purchase of a non-latest-model, since you are not riding the Early Adopter Wave.

If you like this approach, one path is refurbished, the D7200 body only is available manufacturer-refurbished with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty at Adorama or $789 with a 90-da7 B&H warranty at B&H Photo.

Another path that will get you more bang for the buck (if you need/want the 18-140mm DX VR lens) is at the eBay Deals du jour where eBay seller 6ave (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the imported grey-market D7200 with the 18-140mm DX VR lens and a 1-year seller warranty (from 6ave, not Nikon USA) for $900 with free shipping. Limit five per customer.

For the speed-readers, the “1555” in the eBay listing title maybe easily misread as 1855 as in the 18-55 lens. This 1515 is the MPN of this kit, it comes with the 18-140mm lens 🙂 But for whatever reason, the eBay bots or humans picked a YouTube video for the D700 in the middle of the eBay listing instead of the D7200 🙂

PS: I am not sure how a one-paragraph post turned into this 🙂
