Internets Price-Match Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom (40x, AA) Black Friday Ad for under $260 with free accessories

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

(ENDED) Refurbished Nikon L840 superzoom (38x, AA) for $119

As of 11/25/16 recheck, this sold out with nearly 2500 units sold from this eBay listing…

Nikon APS-C D5xxx and D3xxx: Wait for Black Friday Offers to go live (or get matched/defeated)

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:
