Wedn: 1-Year Microsoft 365 Family w/$50 Amazon GC for $100 [auto-renewal, up to 6 people]

If you want to check out the Microsoft 365 Family subscription at virtually half price, for Wednesday 12/2/20 in the pacific time zone, as their headliner Gold Box deal du jour is a 1-year prepaid auto-renewing family-style (up to six people/accounts participating) Microsoft 365 Family Subscription for $100 with a bonus of a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Limit two per customer.

The Microsoft 365 offer [interesting that they are now leveraging their brand name in the subscription] includes the usual Office apps (Excel, Word, etc) and 1TB of OneDrive per person. This is good for PCs, Macs, Android and iPhones/iPads/etc. So it works on a mix-and-match basis.

PRO TIP: if you have a personality that is split six ways, you can have six different Microsoft accounts that have 1TB OneDrive each, making it 6TB OneDrive total 🙂

NOTE: this is an auto-renewing subscription. IF you don’t cancel it, it will auto-renew automatically at the future-renewal-rate. The $50 Amazon Gift Card offer is only for the initial 12-month period. You won’t be getting a $50 Amazon GC every year 🙂

Elsewhere at Amazon they have:

+ Nikon Instant Savings promotion with 30 options, a mix of cameras and lenses of the DSLR and mirrorNYET kind

+ Sony Cameras Instant Savings promotion with seven options, a mix of APS-C and 35mmFF mirrornyets…

+ 6-month Audible Plus subscription for $5 per month; then it auto-renews at $8/month
+ this is a limited Netflix-style subscription, a departure from the usual ownership-style Audible subscription which costs more
+ this includes ONLY a subset of the audiobooks available on Audible
+ the “Premium Plus” subscription with a $15/month standard price includes the above “Plus” plus you get one free (to digitally own) audiobook per month [you can bank freebies to a certain extent if you don’t need any audiobook one particular month; but they do have limitations/expirations]

+ UPDATE: another promotion, spend $20+ on 300 select qualifying products and save $5
+ Amazon herself must needs be the seller of each eligible product
+ all items must be placed in the same shopping cart

Cyber Monday Camera and Photo Lightning Deals: GoPro Hero7, Neewer, And The Usual

As of the time of writing there are over 130 items in the Camera and Photo Lightning Deals of the Amazon Gold Box. Still no cameras and lenses but there is an older name brand action camera offered most likely by a 3rd party seller:

+ starts 12pm ET: GoPro HERO7 White – E-Commerce Packaging
+ note however that there are six different options on the same listing, and sometimes the Gold Box points to the “root item” instead of the item that will be on sale
+ sometimes more than one of the options is on sale, sometimes all of them, occasionally they get cancelled or rescheduled

+ the rest of the offers is the usual party of lightning kits of all kinds, tripods, camera bags, budget action cams, and such with the usual suspects, Neewer, Akaso, E-Mart, GVM, Geekfoto, etc

Cyber Monday at the Amazon Gold: NixPlay, Anker, Build Your Own PC, Etc

Cyber Monday has arrived at the Amazon Gold Box. No cameras or lenses, but some potentially interesting items. As usual, offers end at 11:59pm pacific time, or earlier for anything that sells out:

Sunday C&P Lightning Deals: Neewer and GVM party once again

In the Sunday Camera & Photo Lightning Deals it’s once again a Neewer and GVM party with lighting kits of all kinds, along with an Akaso action camera… Sadly no cameras/lenses 🙁

UPDATE: here’s a potentially good deal, Hulu is offering a 12-month $2 per month subscription. After the first 12 months, it increases to the standard monthly fee ($6/mo) unless cancelled… These days streaming has gotten cable-like fragmented with so many streaming services splitting between them the various movies and TV shows…
