Make your own deal! Groupon is having a NewEgg Gift Card Promotion. You buy a NewEgg gift card, and receive 10% off that amount as a promotional NewEgg gift card. The options are $50 (get $5 bonus) or $100 (get $10 bonus) or $200 (get $20 bonus). This is a limited time offer.

2pk Lens-Shaped Coffee Mugs for $11.70 after coupon

Coupon code SALE3 drops 10% off the price of lens-shaped coffee mugs at Groupon Goods. The 2-pack goes for $13 before coupon, with the coupon dropping it to $11.70. The 1-packs go for $8, with the coupons dropping them to $7.20.

Free shipping with pre-coupon orders of $34.99 or higher, so you may want to combine these with something else at Groupon if you want to get free shipping. Or you can sign up for their 90-day Prime-like prepaid free shipping service for $15 and get free shipping without the $34.99+ prerequisite (on eligible items sold and shipped by Groupon itself, not 3rd-party sellers).

The coupon expires Tuesday night (10/31/17).

60pk Fujifilm Instax Mini Film Value Pack for $34

The 60 sheet Fujifilm Instax Mini Film Value Pack is currently on sale for $34.49 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three value packs per customer. This comes out to $11.50 per 20-pack.

This is perhaps a price-match of sorts to the Groupon coupon SALE3 that drops the price of the 60 sheet Value Pack from $38 to $34.20 with free shipping. The coupon terms are limit one unit per deal, so only one 60-pack goes for $34.20. The other four will be at $38 each. Free shipping because the order total is over $35 before the coupon.

20% off custom print offers w/Groupon coupon

Groupon has a new coupon, coupon code SALE3 gets you 20% off Local Deals, which include most of the custom photo print offers. You can use the coupon on up to three separate Local offers.

You can also use the same coupon on Groupon Goods with a 10% off discount and up to three different offers. This is where physical products reside, like cameras, photo accessories, etc.

The coupon expires Tuesday 10/31/17 night.

Groupon offers 90-day mini-Prime service for $15 one-time fee

Do you often find things you like at Groupon, but end up not getting them because your order total is under $35 and adding the $3.99 shipping fee ruins the deal?

Just in time for the upcoming Holiday Shopping Season, Groupon is offering a 90-Day Free Shipping Subscription for a $15 one-time fee.

It’s like a Mini Prime. This gets you free shipping on every eligible order for the next 90 days. Typically Groupon offers free shipping on orders of $35+. So if you think you are going to place four or more orders in the next 90 days that would otherwise charge you $4 shipping, then you come ahead.

The 90 day clock starts with purchase date. For example, if you purchase it today, it would run until January 12, 2018 [both October and December have 31 days].

Here’s an annotated screenshot of their summary of terms and conditions:

RESTRICTIONS: just like Prime, this offer only applies to items sold and shipped by Groupon Goods. Items sold by Marketplace sellers (3rd-party sellers, not Groupon itself) are NOT eligible for the offer. Not eligible are items that require special delivery or white glove and such.

In other words, items that would otherwise get the standard $3.99 flat shipping will be get free shipping while you are subscribed to this mini-Prime.

This will likely increase impulse buys, so if you are trying to avoid those, this is probably an enabler!

20% off Local Deals at Groupon (various custom photo print offers)

Good until Sunday night, coupon code SALE3 gets you 10% off Groupon Goods (physical products) and 20% off Local Deals. Of custom photo prints interest, most of the custom photo books, and metal and canvas prints and such reside under the Local Deals, so you can get 20% off. You can navigate the categories or use their search bar. For example, this is a search for Photo Prints. The usual terms/conditions/exclusions apply.

NOTE: a lot of the custom photo prints do not include include shipping when you redeem the prints at the printer’s website. Make sure you check the listings, do not assume they come with free shipping!

16×20″ Canvas Prints with Free Shipping: One $24 OR Two for $40 [updated]

UPDATE good until Monday 10/2/17 night, coupon SALE3 drops the price of these to $24 for a single or $40 for a 2-pack… The previous sale was $25 and $37 respectively…

The key to finding good canvas print offers on Groupon is to look for offers with free shipping of your printed canvas, otherwise, the sale price gets eaten up by the shipping fees. So with this, until Saturday night, we have both a sale AND free shipping!

Canvas On Demand, a regular canvaseer (new word?) on Groupon is offering 16×20-inch Custom Canvas Wraps for $24 if you buy one, or for $40 if you buy them as a 2-pack. You have to select the “Two” from the menu to get the discount, not two individual units. No coupon is needed, the price you see is the price you pay.

The terms state in multiple places that free shipping is included in the offer. You can redeem one Groupon voucher per redemption order placed at Canvas On Demand, but since you get free shipping, this is not an issue with this order (other print offers has mandatory shipping per order).

You can buy four vouchers (1-packs or 2-packs, your choice) and an additional voucher as a gift. Ships to US/AK/HI only. Check the full terms and conditions over there. Note that if you buy the discounted 2-packs, both prints must be ordered in the same order and ship to the same address (which is probably why they are able to offer a discount).

Offer expires Saturday night (9/30/17). This is the deadline to purchase the voucher, not to decide on what to print.

(ENDED) Goupon Coupon: 20% off Local (Prints, Photo Books), 10% off Goods (Cameras, Etc)

Thursday: Fuji Instax Mini Film Pack: 20pk for $12, 60pk for $36, 100pk for $58

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.

New Free Shipping Offer at Groupon: Make $50+ purchase, unlock Free Shipping for the next 14 Days (without minimum purchase requirement)

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 🙂

Pay $60 and Get 1-Year Costco Gold Star Membership AND $20 Costco Cash Card AND Freebies and $25/$250+ Online Coupon

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.

Heads Up (T-Mobile Tuesdays): 50% off Local (think photo prints/books)

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.

Samsung Gear 360 VR Camera for $110

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.

Pay $15, Get $40 to spend through Google Express (new users only)

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?

Pay $15, Get $40 to spend at Google Express [New Users Only!]

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.

Groupon coupon: 10% off Goods, 20% off Local (where photo print offers reside)

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.

10% off coupon at Groupon Goods

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.

20% off Groupon Local (where Custom Photo Print Offers reside)

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.

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 🙂

Pay $5, Get $10 Target eGift Card (YMMV maybe)

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.

40-Page Custom Photo Books for $5 to $20 + S&H

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:

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).
