Giottos YTL8384 Carbon Fiber Tripod for $200 w/free S&H

Massdrop is a membership-style shopping website because some of their offers are below MAP. So you have to create a free account to participate in most activities, including buying. This is also a “group buy” style shopping website, so everything ships after the promotion ends. Shipping is typically slow and there’s no option for expedited shipping. If you find Prime 2-day shipping takes too long, then this mayhaps it is not for you 🙂 It’s a different model, so read up on it if you are not familiar with this approach.

Over there, running for the next two days and a few hours (as of writing time), you can get the new condition Giottos YTL8384 Carbon Fiber Tripod for $200 with free USA shipping and handling. These will ship at the end of February. All sales are final! The orders will be shipped by the vendor and come with a 2-year limited warranty.

Vanguard Sale: Many Camera Bags, Tripods, Monopods, Etc

Vanguard is having a big Winter sale at Adorama featuring dozens of products on sale. First up in the sale page over there, they have 26 camera bags, followed by 15 tripods, and four monopods, along with some spotting scopes and binoculars. The sale concludes with even more tripods on sale.

Some of the tripods and binoculars have mail-in rebate promotions on them which are clearly marked over there. At the very bottom of the page there is a mail-in rebate promotion that gets you free spiked feet with the purchase of select Vanguard tripods.

Manfrotto Tripod Sale (19 options)

Still Good: Mini Tripod for $2 after $17 clip-on coupon

UPDATE Saturday at 10pm ET: this is still good…

This may not last long, so YMMV. A $17.10 off green clip-on coupon drops the price of this new condition Outdoor Mash Mini Tripod (with adjustments) from $18.79 to $1.69. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $25+ order. Not sure if the coupon amount counts towards the $25+ minimum or not. The shopping cart will be more than happy to tell you. This is not an ADD-ON item as of the time of writing. Certainly can’t go wrong for under $2.

This is sold and shipped by Amazon itself. Amazon itself must be the seller for the clip-on coupon to work. Sales tax may be collected on the full amount, not the after-coupon price!

NOTE #2: I just purchased one to test the deal. As of 5:30pm ET, this went through without any problems! You may be able to buy more than one at the sale price. After I purchased one, the product page now shows the option to clip the $17 off green clip-on coupon once again.

NOTE #3: if you are a Prime member and select slow shipping, you may be offered a $1 digital credit. It won’t necessarily ship slowly though. If you have other Amazon orders in progress, or place ones in the next few days, this may be automatically attached to them, but you’ll still get the $1 promotional credit.

This is a brand new product launch, and these type of coupons are not uncommon to generate buzz for the new product at Amazon. Certainly beats buying radio ads and Facebook ads for something like this 🙂

If you are not familiar with Amazon green clip-on coupons, this is part of the product page to look out for. Click on the little box (at the Amazon page) to activate the coupon in your Amazon account. Annotated screenshot below:
