If you are planning to place a $34.99+ Groupon order, they have a sale ending tonight on Fujifilm Instax Mini Film Pack. The 20-exposure (one twin-pack) set goes for $12, the 60-expose set goes for $36, and the 100-exposure set goes for $58. Free returns.
If your order total is $49.99+, then for the next 14 days after purchase you can get free shipping on Groupon purchases, even if they are under $34.99.
There is a new development in the world of Free Shipping at Groupon Goods. In addition to their existing on-going offer to get free shipping with a $34.99+ order, they are introducing a new limited time free shipping promotion as follows:
IF you make a purchase of $49.99+ in a single transaction, for the next 14 calendar days, you will get FREE shipping on all your purchases, without the need for a minimum purchase amount. Items have to be sold and shipped by Groupon itself, not 3rd-party sellers.
Think of it a 14-day Prime-like membership, except you get the slowest Super-Saver No-Rush shipping, instead of 2-day shipping 🙂
The fineprint of the offer, cut and paste from their website:
“For a limited time, when you spend $49.99 or more on eligible Goods deals in one purchase, you’ll get free standard shipping ($3.99) on that order and on all eligible orders for the next 14 days with no minimum purchase requirement. No limits on number of uses. Eligible orders are for deals sold by Groupon Goods, Inc. that are not large, oversized, or delivered by a special or white glove carrier. Orders from third party sellers that sell on the Groupon Marketplace do not qualify. U.S. only.”
It is nice to see retailers try new things. Shipping is definitely one thing that is holding back some people from making Groupon purchases, so this offer may …unlock temporary impulse buys 🙂
Costco does not carry the vast majority of the digital cameras out there, but they are able to get some good deals from time time, some of which are available in-store only, others online, and some at both places. If you are Costco-curious and need some extra motivation to start a new membership, there is a Costco membership promotion at Groupon Goods.
This offer is only good for new members. You cannot use it to renew an existing subscription. If you previously had a membership that expired before 4/1/17, then you use this promotion. If your membership expired after 4/1/17, then you cannot use this offer. That’s per the terms over there.
The offer is this: you pay $60 for a 1-Year Costco Gold Star Membership. This is the standard price for the Gold Star membership [see Costco membership page]. What makes this Groupon offer a good deal are the six bonus items you receive:
- $20 Costco Cash Card – this is $20 to spend at Costco and the main reason to get this offer
- $25 off an order of $250+ at the Costco website – great if you are planning a big order or an expensive item, eg something that has the same prices everywhere
- $75 to spend at Costco Travel (only if you are planning to book one of their eligible travel offers)
- and a trio of utilitarian products: FREE Pizza, FREE VitaRain flavored water, and FREE Paper Towels
As to the mechanics of redeeming this offer, look for the “Frequently asked questions” link towards the middle of the Groupon offer page. You have to activate your offer at a Costco store. Your $20 Cash Card will be mailed to you 4-6 weeks after you activate your membership. The coupons will be mailed to you within 4 weeks of redeeming the offer online. You have a choice of pizza toppings (cheese, pepperoni or both). I haven’t done this offer, so I’m only going by the what the FAQ page says.
If you want to scout their online selection of digital cameras, this is their main Cameras and Photo page.
This is a heads up! If you are a paying T-Mobile customer, the T-Mobile Tuesdays for August 1st in 2017 will have a 50%5 off promotion for Groupon Local. Of camera and photo interest is that a number of custom photo prints, including metal and books, are listed under Groupon Local. This is the first time this promotion was offered as far as I can recall, so I don’t know if everything under Groupon Local is included or it will be restricted. There is a maximum discount of $10 using the coupon.
All you have to do to get these is to be a T-Mobile customer, and logon to the Tuesdays website or app (there’s a special Tuesdays app, not the main T-Mobile app) using your phone number and password.
If you are part of the Samsung ecosystem, the new condition Samsung Gear 360 VR Camera is on sale $110 with free shipping at Groupon Goods until 7/18/17… Speaking of Groupon, they are currently running a Black Friday Bonanza sale. Because they already used up their Gunsmoke and Love Boat themes? 😉
If you are planning to place a $34.99+ order (to get free shipping), they have $7 Lens-Shaped Coffee Cups.
Speaking of Price Club / Costco (for those not old enough to remember 1993, they merged in 1993), they are among the retailers that are participating in Google Express, along with Fry’s, Tarjay, Staples, etc. For first time Google Express customers, Groupon has a Pay $15, Get $40 to spend thru Google Express promotion. That is a pretty good discount, especially if you can keep your order close to the minimum.
Limit one for you and another one as a gift. The offer is for new Google Express users. I haven’t made a Google Express purchase yet, but I believe tipping for the delivery is expected?
This promotion is good for new users of Google Express only, not existing customers. Groupon has a new groupon where you Pay $15, and Get $40 to Spend through Google Express. Google Express is a local delivery service that lets you buy various products from local B&M retailers. Of camera and photo interest, Fry’s, Costco, Target, Staples and more are participating in the program.
This offer is good where Google Express is operating locally. Not every item offered by a retailer may be available for purchase through Google Express. You can check using the Google Express website and your zipcode.
You can buy one Groupon of this for you, and another one as a gift for another person.
UPDATE: of Costco interest, this Kirkland tea with near-cult following is actually available as one 100-pack for $14 thru Google Express, while the Costco website only offers two 100-packs for $30.89.
The Groupon website has launched a new 2-day coupon, coupon code SALE3 gets you 10% off on Groupon Goods (physical products such as camera gear and electronics) and 20% off on Local Deals (which includes most of the photo print offers such as custom canvas prints, photo books, photo gifts, metal prints, etc). The coupon expires Saturday night.
The usual terms apply. The coupon discounts one unit per offer/deal. You can use the coupon on three different Goods, and three different Local Deals (also good on Getaways but I don’t think there’s anything photo-related there). The maximum discount is $50 per deal. Other restrictions may apply.
In addition to getting you 20% off Local Deals (this is where custom photo print offers reside), coupon code SALE3 also gets you 10% off on Groupon Goods where most of the camera and photo and electronics and other physical goods reside. You can use the coupon on three different offers, buying one unit in each offer, with a maximum discount of $50 per offer. You can use the sub-categories to navigate (cameras are under “Electronics” or use the search box over there).
NOTE that like Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Walmart, Sears, NewEgg, Jet, Groupon also allows third-party sellers to offer products on its site. When buying items where manufacturer warranty or buying a USA-market-model is important, check the Groupon listing to see who’s selling it. It is not shown as clearly as Amazon or NewEgg or eBay (and these three could do some work to improve upon it), so you have to read the blob of text in the main body of the description.
Coupon ends 4/13/17.
If you are looking for some custom photo print offers (gallery-wrapped canvas, custom photo books, metal or wood or other photo gifts such as blankets or phone cases or coffee cups), coupon code SALE3 gets you 20% off on up to three separate Local Deals at Groupon. Maximum discount is $50 per item. Limit one unit of each offer. Coupon ends 4/13/17.
You can locate them by navigating the sub-categories or use their Search Box to search for things like “canvas” or “custom photo book” or “custom photo” (for a wider search net) or “metal print” or search for any service you may interested in, eg “printerpix” or “shutterfly” and such. I tried all the search words in this paragraph and they return multiple results.
As usual with coupons, some restrictions apply, for example, some brands may not allow their products to be couponized.
From the “Make Your Own Deal” department, Groupon has a new coupon, coupon code BEST3 gets you 20% off Local Deals (custom photo print offers reside there), 10% off Goods (camera-related gear and electronics and other physical goods reside here) and 10% off Gateways (I don’t think they have photographic-vacations, but I haven’t re-checked recently). The same coupon works on all the above categories. Maximum discount is $50 per deal. Limit one unit per deal. The coupon can be used on up to three different Local deals, up to three different Goods, and up to three Gateways. Getaway cars not included 😉 Offer ends 3/24/17 PM.
A lot of the photo print offers (custom photo books, canvas prints, calendars, metal, etc) reside at Groupon Local and until Wednesday night, coupon 20NOW gets you 20% off a purchase. One unit per offer can be discounted by the offer. You can use this coupon on three different offer. Maximum coupon discount is $50 per offer. Some exclusions apply. Search for things of interest (eg prints, canvas, photo books, etc) to find them or use their categories.
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.

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.

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.
