On the VRography front (okay, VR cameras), the new condition Samsung 360 Gear VR camera is on sale for $190 with free shipping and free returns at Groupon Goods. The sale ends 2/24/17. This ships in two business days. Groupon is trying to improve their shipping speeds, which is a must in the era of Prime and Doordash and Google Express 🙂
Groupon has a new doorbuster type of an offer, Pay $5, Get a $10 electronic Target Gift Card. You can also buy it as a gift for other people.
The page there says only those invited by email can get it. I checked my Groupon emails and I wasn’t invited but I can add to cart and go to the “Place Order” page, so maybe they opened up the offer to everyone. I don’t need a Tarjay gift card at the moment, and being a poor blogger, I can’t buy it just so I can test the offer 🙁
So, to cut a long story short, this may be YMMV.
Among the latest Groupon $5 Sales is a promotion on Custom Photo Books from Photobook America. There are five options of 40-page custom photo books. Shipping is additional. The prices and sizes are summarized a lot better than words can do in this annotated screenshot:
If you are not familiar with these type of offers, be sure to read the terms and conditions and restrictions. You can buy up to three for you, and two more as gifts for others. But when you redeem these (to get the actual printed books) you can only place one order at a time (using these vouchers, in other words one voucher per order).
For brand new Groupon customers ONLY, coupon code THORN50 gets you 50% off Local Deals at Groupon Local. Of photography interest, Local is where most of the custom photo print offers reside (photo books, canvas prints, wood prints, metal, photo gifts, etc). Navigate the categories or search for them. Limit one use per new customer for one unit. Maximum discount with the coupon is $35. Offer ends 10/23/16.
If you are a brand new Groupon customer, you can use coupon code PIGSKIN to get 50% off one Groupon Local Deal.

It’s time for another Groupon coupon! Coupon code SALE3 gets you 10% off on Goods (eg electronics, camera accessories, etc) and 20% off Local Deals (that’s where most of the custom photo books and canvas prints and such live) at the Groupon website. Some items are not eligible for the coupon discount. Limit one discounted unit per transaction, and the coupon can be used three times. Maximum discount is $50 per transaction. Offer ends 8/5/16 PM.
For example, here’s a search for Canvas Prints. When looking at the print offers, make sure you pay attention to the shipping fees. Some offers come with free shipping, others do not. Of those that charge for shipping, some specify the exact shipping charge, others say “shipping starts at”, so be sure pay attention to all that.
Some pictures beg to be printed and some of those would work great as canvas prints. Which brings us to a CanvasOnSale Groupon promotion that includes five different sizes, including a one 16×20 inch print for $15 or a 2-pack for $31 (they list them as 20×16). For this Groupon shipping is additional and it starts at $10 and increases based on size and weight of the shipment. They do not specify how much it costs for each particular option.
UPDATE 8/2/16: the prices increased to $50 for two and $30 for one. Free shipping remains.
It’s canvas time at Groupon Goods, where Canvas On Demand is offering 16×20-inch customer canvas prints with free shipping regardless of which option you select. It goes for $25 for one 16×20 inch print or $40 for two. You have to select the quantity from the above page, not using the shopping cart in order to get the 2-pack discount. You can still buy multiple 2-packs, up to four per person plus an additional one as a gift. Check the terms/conditions/restrictions if you are not familiar with the offer.
This post is for brand new Groupon customers only! Existing customers are not eligible for these two promotions.

The maximum discount is $20 for Goods and $50 for everything else. Limit one unit/use per customer during this offer. Some items may be excluded as usual. Works on desktop or mobile Groupon sites.

Coupon code SALE3 entered at the Groupon website gets you 10% off Groupon Goods and 20% off Local Offers. Local offers is where many of the photo print (and photo book and metal and canvas such) offers reside.

+ ONE 5×7 inch TableTop Canvas for $5 plus $5 flat shipping
NOTE: to get the volume discount, you must select the Two or Three options. Not buy three one-unit. Annotated screenshot below:
Even though the jump from two to three is higher than the jump from one to two, on average, the two-unit option is $19 per canvas, while the three-option is $18.33 per canvas. So if you are buying for volume, the 3-unit is the lowest per-canvas price.
Limit four sets per person plus one more as gift, the usual Groupon limit of five. Check the terms, conditions and restrictions over there if you are not familiar with these type of offers.
This particular coupon expired but Groupon has frequent coupons. Groupon rhymes with coupon after all 🙂

This promotion expired ahead of time. Groupon coupons are rather frustrating. Sometimes they expire early sometimes they get extended multiple days in a row. Grrr…. All apologies but it’s beyond my control…
If you are a fan of Sony Stamina AA single-use batteries, Groupon Goods is offering 72pks of Sony Stamina Plus AA or AAA single-use batteries for $16 per pack. That’s 4.5 batteries per dollar.

This sold out very quickly…

+ limit 2 per Groupon customer
+ NOTE: this is only a good deal if you are planning to use all the promotional credit. If you can’t spend it within the next 90 days, you may be better off getting NewEgg Premier directly from NewEgg ($50 for 1-Year but NO Promotional Credit; extra month for new customers).
Groupon time, especially if you have gift certificates or store credit! Good until the end of day today (2/10/16) coupon code EXTRA15 gets you 15% off Groupon Goods products, which are typically physical products (not services/vacations/etc). This includes Electronics (over 17,000 items) which includes Camera and Photo items (770+ items). Of those 300+ are in accessories of all kinds, and 300+ are in security cameras. There are around 45 digital cameras in two categories (DSLR, P&S). You can see all those subcategories on the left hand side of their website.
The coupon restrictions: you can use the coupon on three separate purchases. On each purchase, you can use the discount on one unit of an item (eg one item X, one item X, one item Z). There is no minimum purchase amount. The maximum savings from this promotion is $50 per deal. Typically you can get free shipping with orders of $34.99 or higher (for items sold and shipped by Groupon itself).
If your interests intersect at Android and Compact Superzooms, you can get the certified refurbished Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, model ECG200, with a 21x optical zoom lens and a six month Samsung warranty for $215 with free shipping and free returns from Groupon Goods.
The Nikon Coolpix S9900 is offered manufacturer refurbished with a 90 day Nikon USA warranty for $230 with free shipping at Groupon Goods. Before I give you the spoiler, take a closer look at that listing. Spoiler in the next paragraph, stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled 🙂
The spoiler is… the picture is of a Sony superzoom camera, but everything in the listing is about the Nikon S9900 which may perhaps explain why they only sold one, even though it’s a good price, when you consider the new condition is $300 at Amazon and Best Buy upon eBay et al. The Groupon listing for the new condition Coolpix S9900 has the correct picture.
This daily deal expired…
UPDATE: some of the offers remain at $5, others expired. Some of them were created specifically for this promotion while others were $5 anyway and they got tagged along…
