YI M1 with 12-40 and 42.5/.18 for $349 [m43]

The YI 42.5mm f1.8 macro lens for $100 offer expired, but there is a new discount on the YI M1 two lens kit (with 12-40, 42.5mm f1.8) dropping from $379 to $350 in the black or silver color schemes. This is not a lightning deal. If you don’t need it immediately, since YI is a frequent participant in the Gold Box Lightning Deals, it may show up there at some point(s) during this Holiday shopping season. This is only speculation, I have no way of knowing either way ahead of time.

PS: but that’s not all, there are many Micro Four Thirds sales and more when Olympus unveils their Outlet store specials. As of the time of writing all the refurbished products are gone. Maybe they are saving them for Cyber Monday?

YI M1 w/12-40mm for $299 or add 45mm f1.8 for $379 total [M43]

YI is taking Prime Day seriously with actual discounts, unlike many of the MAP-obsessed more famous iLC camera manufacturers. Their YI M1 with 12-40mm Micro Four Thirds camera is now on sale for $299 instead of its regular price of $350 in the silver or black color schemes by YI with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so they are Prime eligible.

Their two other kits are also discounted (two lens kit, or with 42.5mm f1.8 instead of 12-40). The best bang for the buck is the YI M1 with 12-40mm and 45mm f1.8 for $379, so essentially $80 more gets you the 45mm f1.8 lens added to your bundle.

YI 4K+ Action Camera and YI Gimbal 3-Axis Stabilizer and YI Floating Grip for $440 after coupon

GoPRO is no longer the only game in town when it comes to action cameras.

The offers are stackable.

Here are the steps:
* start at the YI 4K+ Action Camera product page; page down until you…
* … locate the offer that says “Receive 1 Floating Grip free” (you will receive one FREE YI Floating Grip (randomly chosen color)
* hit the yellow “Add Both to Cart”
* if you don’t want the Gimbal, that’s it, proceed to checkout
* if you also want the Gimbal at 50% off, add the YI Gimbal 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer to the shopping cart and enter coupon code YIGIMBAL
* the coupon cuts the price of the Gimbal from $200 to $100
* your total is $340 (Action Cam) + $100 (Gimbal after coupon) = $440

The top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page looks like this when all is well and this offer is stacked:
