PS2: if you missed yesterday’s burst of posts, many of them are already on Page #2. Or you can check them by date, eg the August 11 posts. You can find ready-made links to the first five pages under the HOME button on the leftmost side of the main menu.

Canon Pixma Printer Savings and/or more savings with Camera purchase (with Mail-In Rebates (prepaid AMEX Gift Card))

One of the B&H Photo headliner deals for the Photo Shop World 2015 is a Canon Pixma Printer savings promotion. You must needs enter coupon code PSWBH15 for these promotions to activate and use this B&H link that activates the promotion.

There are two ways to go about this. One is to buy the printers on their own straight up. They have a $250 mail-in rebate offer, bringing the printers down to $50 after MIR for the Pixma-100, $250 after MIR for the Pixma-10 and $450 after MIR for the Pixma-1.

The other option is to buy one of the printers along with one of the camera kits listed on the promotional page. This qualifies for an additional $350 mail-in rebate (on the combined purchase of a printer and camera). Some items may also come with promotional rewards or other freebies which are independent of this promotion.

The mail-in rebates are in the form of a prepaid American Express Gift Card (not a cashable check). The coupons expire 8/16/15. Here’s the B&H banner summarizing this offer:

canon_pixma_bh_photoshop_world_2015_mail_in_rebates

PS: in case you are not familiar with these, you either get the $250 MIR if you buy a printer on its own or a $350 MIR if you buy a printer together with a digital camera. The table in the PDF rebate form (can be found on all the eligible product pages at B&H) makes it clear. The additional discounts above are from the B&H coupon and special promotion.

Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD with 4% rewards for $1200 after $100 MIR (C/N/A)

Rule #4975.34.AV30iiv (0.453 revision) of the Brand Fairness Doctrine requires that every time we mention a Tokina special, we have to match it with a Tamron offer, if nothing else, because those two names are too similarly confusing, at least to newcomers to the world of photography 😉 With that unnecessary introduction out of the way, the Tamron SP 24-70mm f2.8 DI VC USD Lens is offered for $1200 after a $100 mail-in rebate (MIR) plus 4% promotional rewards (= $50~) by B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Sony Minolta Alpha mounts.

Panasonic CM1P with two Cotta Extras for $1000

Adorama is bundling two free extras (Cotta Hard Jacket and Cotta Lens Cover) with the Panasonic CM1P camera phone for $1000 with free shipping. The phone part is carrier unlocked. It has a Leica-branded lens, Snapdragon 801, RAW capture, 1-inch sensor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD (up to 128GB), Android 4.4, etc.

PS: if the bands work, T-Mobile has a limited time offer that gets you 4 lines with 10GB of full speed data per line, (with data rollover for 12 months), for $120 total per month (plus taxes and other fees of course). You could use the CM1 as of the four lines and not worry about it eating up your cellular data. Also, if you don’t need more than two lines, you can turn one of the phones into a virtual mobile hotspot (you pay the same price whether you get 3 or 4 lines).

Lensbaby Special Edition Spark 50mm f2 for $60 (C/N)

The Lensbaby Special Edition Spark 50mm f2 Selective Focus Lens is currently on sale for $60 with free shipping and 4% promotional rewards at Adorama, available in the Canon and Nikon SLR mounts. Offer ends 8/31/15.

Free shipping at Target (no minimum purchase)

Good until 8/15/15, the Target website is offering free shipping to the 48 contiguous states and APO/FPO. No coupon needed. Some oversized items may not be eligible. While they don’t have the inventory of a dedicated camera shop, you may find useful things, eg accessories that you can’t get with free shipping elsewhere. (As usual, you get 5% back if you pay with their own REDcards).

A couple of places to fish for deals: their Camera & Photo page and their Clearance page.

Speaking of Target, this eBay offer is Pay $185, Get $200 Target Gift Card with free shipping (physical gift card), from Gift Card Mall’s eBay store. (since it’s a physical card it probably won’t get to you in time for the aformentioned Target free shipping promotion).

Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 DX-II with 4% rewards for $400 (N)

The lens party continues at B&H, this time for Nikon DSLR photographers, the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 DX II ATX lens is on sale for $400 with free expedited shipping and 4% promotional rewards ( = $16~). The Canon and Sony Minolta Dyxum A-mount also go for $400 but don’t get the 4% promotional rewards.

Sigma Lens and Flash Specials (62 options; additional discount with coupon)

B&H Photo has a big sale on 62 Sigma Lens options. Additionally, coupon code PSWBH15 entered at checkout can further discount the lenses by up to $50 off more (I can’t test the coupon on 62 lenses and live to tell, so that’s DIY on any lenses you might be interested in). This is part of their PhotoshopWorld sale festivities. Coupons expire 8/16/15.

Participating are lenses for DSLRs and mirrorless systems, along with a few flash units. Lens prices range from $209 to $1509 before the coupon is entered. A number of participating items also earn 4% promotional rewards (but not everything listed there).

Zeiss 50mm f1.4 T* with 4% rewards for $525 (C/N)

Zeiss 85mm f1.4 T* with 4% rewards for $983 (C/N)

Rumors of Zeiss hiring Vanilla Ice for a new “Zeiss Zeiss Baby” TV commercial are completely unfounded, but founded in your wallet is a new sale on the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 Planar T* manual focus lens for Canon and Nikon DSLRs for $983 with free shipping and 4% promotional rewards (= almost $40) at B&H Photo.

Pentax DSLR Lens Specials (36 options)
