Another tripod sale came up while doing the Canon Lenses with Free Tripods post, the new condition Vanguard Alta Pro 264AB 100 Aluminum Tripod Kit is going for $155 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of ten units per customer.

While price-checking things for the Canon Lenses with Free Tripods post, another tripod sale came up, it is the new condition Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum Tripod going for $179 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of ten units per customer. This looks like a computer-generated price-match of 3rd-party sellers offering it at that price, so its existence may depend on the 3rd-party sellers continuing their sale (or if Amazon’s price-match mechanism has its own auto-timeout feature or who-knows how Amazon and it’s Data Bots decide things).
