The action continues with a manufacturer refurbished lens with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty, it is the Nikon 55-300mm f4.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX VR offered for $230 [WAS $199] with free shipping at Adorama as a limited time flash sale… Price updated on blog 2/23/17 late PM…
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. Limit up to five bundles per customer.
The weekend festivities bring back the 10% off in-cart discount at the official Nikon USA refurbished store. Over 80 products are available including DSLR, Lenses, fixed lens cameras and accessories. 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…
If you are a bit of an adventurous shopper, and your world view is wide and slightly curved, there is currently the certified refurbished 29-inch Ultra Wide Curved Samsung S29E790C WFHD LED-backlit Monitor is offered for $310 with free shipping by Woot with the order fulfilled by Amazon. It only has three customer reviews, one is happy, one is happy but the first one was a dead-on-arrival, and the third got the wrong power cord. So there is some risk here. If you are risk averse and start fuming at the thought of having to return/exchange something, you may want to skip it.
The monitor has 2560 x 1080 resolution (21:9), Picture in Picture, HDMI, DisplayPort, VESA, etc. Gallery picture #6 shows the connections on the back but it’s a small picture. Zooming in, it looks like there are three, maybe the two are the HDMI (I’m only guessing).
If you are interested in off-lease refurbished computers, Dell Refurbished (formerly Dell Financial Services)i is offering 40% off select computer items (excludes Clearance items and 7010 Desktops) with free ground shipping when you use coupon code PRESIDENT2017 until Monday 2/20/2017 at 11:59pm central time. You can buy as many eligible items as you like. Dell Refurbished offers a 100-day warranty on most of these (check individual listings as usual to be sure).
If you are comfortable with manufacturer-refurbished DSLRs with a 1-year warranty, for just $49 more than the new condition Canon 80D body only, you can get the manufacturer refurbished Canon 80D with the 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM for $1149~ from the official Canon USA online store with a 1-year warranty.
Another option, if you also want one of the Canon Pixma PRO printers, is to look for or wait for DSLR + Pixma bundles that qualify for the American Express prepaid gift card mail-in rebates.

If you are collecting printers, or need a low budget model (assuming you can also get good prices on the inks) or if you simply need a printer to take advantage of trade-in promotions, there are a couple of sub-$20 shipped offers for the white Canon MG-2520 printer at the eBay Deals. Both of the models mentioned below come WITHOUT an ink cartridge. You can’t print with them unless you buy/use your own inks.
NewEgg’s eBay store is offering them in seller-refurbished condition for $13 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer. I am not sure how they do this, since the printers are not exactly lightweight like a greeting card 🙂 There is no mention of warranty in the NewEgg listing.
The listing by eBay seller “Always.Deals” (98.4%, New Jersey) on the other hand, lists this as an “Open Box” with a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Canon USA), going for $17~ with free shipping with a limit of up to 50 per customer. This is non-returnable.
TL;DR for the high-speed readers. The above offers DO NOT INCLUDE INK! You can’t print with these unless you buy or use your own inks. There are no inks in the box.

More eBay Deals, now it is imported grey-market time, the “Deals All Year” eBay store is offering the new condition imported grey-market Nikon 18-140mm f3.5-5.6G ED VR DX for $250 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer. Limit one year warranty by the seller, not Nikon USA.
On the other hand, if you prefer a model with the blessings of Nikon USA, you can get it in manufacturer-refurbished with 90-day Nikon USA for $270 with free shipping by Adorama.
Among the top shelf of the eBay Deals, the official GoPRO eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished GoPro HERO4 Black Edition Camera with a 1-year warranty for $299 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer. Over 2000 units got sold so far.
Speaking of the GoPro official eBay store, they are also offering the manufacturer refurbished GoPro HERO4 Silver Edition Camera with a 1-year warranty for $219 with free shipping.
And now some mirrorless action at the Canon USA webstore, you can get the manufacturer refurbished with 1-year warranty Canon M3 with EF-M 18-55 IS STM along with a FREE refurbished EF lenses to EOS-M cameras mount adapter, all together for $350 in the black color scheme.
UPDATE: if you don’t need the 18-55 lens, the refurbished M3 body only also gets the free mount adapter, for $300 with a 1-year warranty.
PS: the free mount adapter promotion expires 12/31/16 or earlier if they run out.
One may need to set aside half a day (exaggeration alert) to navigate the clumsy and plodding Canon USA outlet website but if you plod through like a fullback in spring practice, you may find some good offers. For example, if you are interested in the latest D-Rebel T6S with the 18-135mm IS STM lens (instead of the 18-55), you can get that in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty for $750.
On the other hand, if you prefer a two-lens kit, you can get it with the 18-135 IS STM and 55-250 IS STM with a 1-year warranty on everything for $830. So $80 more gets you the 55-250mm lens.
Price drop! The refurbished Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM with a one year Canon USA warranty was going for $400 at the Canon USA Outlet but as of the time of writing, this dropped to $350. Other than this being an older DSLR in terms of “smartphone features”, this is a pretty good “take pictures with” starter kit, given the price and the 1-year warranty.
UPDATE: the D-Rebel T5i two-lens kit (18-55 IS STM and 55-250 IS II) also dropped in price, from $450 to $400 as of the time of writing.
This particular sale ended, but this refurbished critter is frequently discounted across the interwebs…

Pentax does not have a monopoly on pancakes, Canon photographers can now have pancakes and have enough money left for some maple syrup too 🙂 The manufacturer refurbished Canon 40mm f2.8 STM EF with a 1-year warranty is offered for $100 at the official Canon USA store.
