To the Trending eBay deals we go, where the Buydig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3400 two lens kit with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G VR and the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX (not VR) lenses, along with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty for $400 with free shipping.

The discount happens automatically AFTER you add an item to your shopping cart. There’s no coupon to enter. When the promotion is over you will no longer see the 10% off discount mentioned in their product listings…
The Nikon A900 (20mp 1/2.3″, 35X optical zoom) is down to $366~ with free shipping in either black or silver at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself. Be sure to read reviews if you are not familiar with this as it has its fair share of trade-offs and issues. It is powered by lions (okay, Li-Ion) not AA.
Nikon has cancelled their DL line of cameras. If you placed pre-orders with deposits and such, make sure you get a refund. Nikon has been self-sabotaging with both their “Angry Inch” mirrorless system and the DL line of cameras, and the Cylons came back for them. Might as well had stayed out of it and saved all the money they spent/wasted on half-hearted attempts at competing just so they can say “we have one too”. /rant 🙂

To the eBay Deals we boldly go, where the Buydig Ebay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $699 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. The usual limit of up to five units per customer applies.
This goes for $1000 in new condition at authorized Nikon dealers, which include a handful of free accessories, such as Adorama (Sunpak FlexPod Pro, 16GB Lexar SDHC, Slinger bag, memory card case, cleaning kit, Corel software bundle (Windows only)) and to a lesser extent B&H Photo (2% rewards, 16GB ExTreme SDHC, DSLR shoulder bag).
Nikon has many APS-C DSLRs out in the market, and if you are comfortable with manufacturer-refurbished, the options increase so much so that a spreadsheet may be necessary to sort them out. One of these options is a new condition two-lens kit based on the Nikon D5300 for $597. You get the black Nikon D5300 DSLR with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR lens (not the newer VR II as far as I can tell), along with the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX (not VR) lens. From here, you get additional freebies based on the retailer.
At Adorama you also receive a Lowepro Format 160 Camera Bag, 16GB Lexar SD card, a Bower 58mm UV filter, a Pro Optic 55mm Digital Essentials Filter kit, two lens cap tethers (one for each included lens), a cleaning kit, and the latest Corel software bundle that includes three photo-related titles: AfterShot 2 Pro, PaintShop Pro X9, VideoStudio 9, plus two more. Note that the Corel software is Windows only! Free expedited shipping.
At B&H Photo, you a 16GB Sandisk ExTrEmE SDHC card, a Ruggard Journey 34 Shoulder Bag (Steve Perry NOT included), 2% promotional rewards to be used in future purchases, and free expedited shipping.
A handful of recognizable sellers offer this kit for $600 through Amazon but no freebies. However, if you are a Prime member and pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Prime Store card, you get 5% cashback on your statement.
On the accessories front, Adorama is offering the Flashpoint Battery Grip for the D5300, D5200, D5100 DSLRs for $20 plus shipping (around $4 based on zipcode).
There are many Nikon APS-C DSLRs in the market, and one has various factors to triangulate between newness of model and features and price and condition. One “take pictures with” kit that triangulates down the middle is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D5500 with 18-55mm DX VR II offered for $499 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty from the buyDig ebay store. Limit up to five units per customer. Nearly 500 units got sold so far from this eBay listing.
In new condition, this kit goes for $700 at authorized dealers that bundle it with free accessories, eg Adorama.

This doorbuster busted…
And now a travel-zoom double-figures Cyber Monday doorbuster of sorts, Adorama is offering the black manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix S7000 (20X optical) for $89 with free shipping with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.
However, if you are comfortable with manufacturer refurbished DSLRs, the Buydig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D750 body only with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty for $1250 with free shipping with a limit of up to five per customer. Nearly 250 units got sold so far from this listing. This is among the buzzworthy Trending eBay Deals.
A parallel offer to the D5300 two-lens kit, the Nikon D3400 two lens kit is bundled with the Nikon 18-55 and 70-300 lenses, along with a bag and 16GB Sandisk SD card and 2% promotional reward (around $10 to be used in future purchases) at B&H Photo… This is yet another one of the glossy Black Friday ads we digested that is getting price-matched online (as it happens every year)…
Another one of the Black Friday Glossy Ads is getting price-matched online as well, the Nikon D5300 with the 18-55 and 70-300mm lenses is now available for $600 with free shipping at B&H Photo with 2% promotional rewards ($12~ to be used in future B&H purchases). Offer ends 11/26/16 at 11:59pm ET… This too is within their latest specials…
I am now continuing with the price-checking of the glossy-ad Black Friday Ads, and one more “glossy ad” has been “defeated” by the internets. The Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom (40x optical, four AA) is advertised for $260 in the BF ads, but Adorama is not only offering it for just under $260, it is also bundled with lots of free accessories: Corel software bundle, Bag, SD, AA charger/batteries, etc. The same price but without those freebies is available at B&H Photo and Amazon itself
As of 11/25/16 recheck, this sold out with nearly 2500 units sold from this eBay listing…
Plum cameras are all the rage at the eBay Deals, the Buydig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix L840 superzoom (38x optical, AA power) in the plum color scheme for $119 with free shipping with a limit of two units per customer. It comes with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. The other two colors (black, red) are sold out.
If you are looking for a Nikon APS-C DSLR with lenses in the D5xx and D3xxx lines, you may want to wait until the Black Friday Ads. As of the time of writing, they have not been price-matched by the internets, which likely means Nikon has not yet given the green light for these offers to go live.
Why wait? The various Black Friday ads have the Nikon D5500 with 18-55 and 70-300 going for $600 and the D3400 with 18-55 and 70-300 going for $500. These prices handily defeat the current (as of the time of writing) prices at Amazon, B&H and Adorama. So patience will likely get you the above prices or even better if the aforementioned online retailers bundle them with more free accessories when their versions go live.
Here’s a screenshot of the Best Buy D5300 BF ad:
Nikon is slowly trying to bring the price of their APS-C flagship closer to earth, it is more expensive than the entry-point 35mm full frame DSLRs of the three major systems [see 35mm FF Price Chart], and now they are bundling it with the official Nikon MB-D17 battery grip along with other assorted accessories at authorized dealer discretion…
At Adorama you additional get the Corel Software Bundle (including Aftershot PRO X2, PSP X8), a 32GB Sandisk SDHC, a 24/7 holster, and three small accessories (cleaning kit, memory card wallet, table-top mini tripod)… At B&H Photo, you additionally receive a 64GB Sandisk EXTreMe PRO SDXC, a Lowepro hatchback (not a car, a camera bag), and 2% promotional rewards ($36~ to be used in future purchases at B&H)…
On the other hand, if you want to optimize for a lower price, and you don’t want/need the battery grip or the other extra accessories, then to the eBay Deals we go, where the new condition imported grey-market Nikon D500 body only is offered for $1450 with free shipping by eBay seller Electronics Valley (99.7%, New Jersey) with a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Nikon USA). Limit five per customer.
The Nikon D810 body only is bundled with the official battery grip and other accessories at authorized dealers for $2500. However, if you don’t want/need the grip and the free accessories, and you want to optimize for a lower price, and you are comfortable with imported grey-market camera gear…
… among the latest eBay Deals, you can get the new condition imported grey-market with a 1-year seller warranty (not Nikon USA) Nikon D810 body only for $1999 with free shipping by eBay seller “Department_Store_NYC” (99.3%, New York) with a limit of five units per buyer.

Adorama’s approach to daily deals is more versatile than other retailers (from a consumer perspective who may have missed that particular day), some (but not all) of them last longer than 24 hours, for example Tiffen 52mm Digital Essentials Filter Kit continues for $20 with free shipping, and the Case Logic CPL-108 DSLR Camera and iPad/Netbook Backpack continues for $22 with free shipping.
