Aug 16-22: Photo Paper specials at Staples (HP, Epson, Kodak)

The free after Easy Rebate photo paper specials ain’t walking through the deal door any time soon, but for the week of August 16-22 in 2015, Staples is planning to have three different photo paper specials, per their Weekly Ad for that week posted on their website. The first two offers are in-store only, while the last is good in-store and online:

+ 60pk 4×6 inch Staples brand glossy photo paper for $4
+ Buy One Get One on all available Kodak photo papers
+ 50% off HP 4×6 or 4×5 inch photo paper

Interfit Fluorescent Ring Light (19″) with FREE 4-Section Stand for $100

The Interfit Fluorescent Ring Light (19″) currently has a special promotion, with it you will automatically receive for free a 4-section air-cushioned stand (7.5). No coupon/rebate, this will be included automatically by B&H Photo. The price is $100 with free standard shipping.

TIP: with “automatically included for free” type of offers, you can tell whether the offer is still running or not by whether you see it mentioned on the product page. If you don’t see it mentioned, it means the offer expired. Here’s an annotated screenshot crop of what to look for:


Not to get existential, but it is harder to find what is not there, than find what is there 🙂

YMMV Targeted AMEX Offers: Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Google Play, Sam’s Club, etc

American Express has a number of new targeted offers. To see if you are eligible, you have to login to your account(s) and check the Offers section. Their computers decide on how and when to offer these, probably a combination of all the data they have hoarded on the accounts 🙂 You have to first add the offer to your account, and then make the purchase. AMEX is pretty good at this, you usually get an email confirmation shortly after an eligible transaction goes through. Needless to say, you have to pay with the AMEX credit card that the offer is on. If you have multiple cards on the same account, make sure you pay with the one that has the offer activated! Some of the floating offers:

+ Spend $5+ at Amazon, Get $5 statement credit
+ Spend $5+ at Google Play, Get $5 statement credit
+ Spend $20+ at Sam’s Club, Get $20 statement credit
+ Spend $79+ at Walmart, Get $15 statement credit
+ Spend $250+ at Best Buy, Get $25 statement credit
+ Spend $250+ at Unique Photo, Get $50 statement credit

Some may be good online only, others in-store only, some both. Check the details of each particular offer. Some may be one time use during the promotional period, others may have multiple uses.
