In its own right it’s interesting to look at the products at the exclusion page. Is it because they are hot? Is it because used supply is limited? Is it because new condition are hard to find? It’s a DIY Used Camera Murder Mystery 😉

If you are looking for some ideas on what to buy, they have a Top Picks page.

Adorama launches 48-hour Frenzy Flash Sale

One of them unintended benefits for the consumer/shopper of Amazon running “Prime Days” is that it encourages other retailers to have similar type of deals. Such is the case this very moment where Adorama has launched a 48-Hour FRENZY Flash sale that features some of their house brand products (Flashpoint lighting options) along with camera gear, storage, lighting, electronics, action cams, etc, etc, etc. Too many to list here individually.

As with the summer Prime Dayz, most of the offers are available to Prime members only. But you can start a free 30-day trial if you want to participate or you see something like you.

Note that some of the offers are using the new “Invite” system. Maybe I’m getting too old for this, but I find this type of offers (along with mail-in rebates) too exhausting for 2023 🙂
