Pentax K50 w/18-55 & 50-200 & Flash & Eyefi for $400

Pentax makes a rare appearance in the featured eBay Deals. The seller is BuyDig (of House Beach Camera) offering in new condition, in either the olive or blue color schemes a Pentax K-50 bundle that consists of the K50, 18-55 WR and 50-200 WR lenses, an external Pentax flash and a 4GB Eyefi SD card. Limit five per buyer.

The eBay Bucks offer ended: TIP: if you are a member of eBay Bucks and you received the 4X Extra Bucks offer and you manually OPTED IN to the offer, and you buy this before 3am ET on Thursday 8/6/15, you can earn $32 in eBay Bucks rewards on this purchase (8% of $400).

Gift Card Update: iTunes and Google Play continue {eBay’s own sold out}

This sold out as of 7pm ET recheck with 5001 gift cards sold through this offer… Back to Les eBay Dealseaux where they have another electronic eBay Gift Card promotion, of interest to frequent eBay shoppers, Buy $100 eBay Gift Card, receive $5 Free eBay Gift Card (both delivered by email) with a limit of one per customer.

The seller is PayPal Digital Gifts, so it’s as close to a safe purchase as it gets on eBay. US only. This is effectively a 4.76% discount on everything you buy using the combined $105 amount. A slightly smaller discount than the previous “pay $95, get $100” offer – sneaky accountants 🙂 Strategically this might be good to use on items that sell for the same price everywhere.

While we are on the topic of eBay and gift cards, they have a couple of other offers:

Under the iOS-Android fairness doctrine, we are obligated to also mention a Google Play Gift Card offer, good until Saturday night (8/8/15), you receive 500 Plenti rewards points if you buy a $25 Google Play Gift Card at Rite Aid stores (limit 2). 500 Plenti points translate to a $5 future purchase at RiteAid stores (or other participating retailers), making it a rare 20% off (effective) discount on Google Play gift cards which can be used on all digital content (apps, books, music, video) but not hardware or subscriptions. You have to be a member of the Plenti program, which is free to join, and puppet-mastered (fancy way of saying administered) by American Express.
