Exclamation Amazon Prime Day TODAY ONLY

From noon today, until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday 17th July), if you are an Amazon Prime member, you will have exclusive access to flash sales deals on Amazon.

If you are not yet a Prime member, you can benefit this site by taking out a free 30-day trial membership of Amazon Prime. Go to this link for more information:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/tryprimefre...gitalphotog-21

Don't forget that you don't need to only buy photographic goods in Amazon to generate commission for the e-group; follow any of the links from our Amazon thread:

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=48205

..and no matter what you end up purchasing in that browsing session, there is a good chance a commission will be earned.

If you have any questions - I'm happy to answer them.

If anyone spots some major bargains - let us know here

Ian

Re: Amazon Prime Day TODAY ONLY

I'm not enlisted, but if an Epson V-850 comes up on a Prime 'deal' I will definitely buy through your link.

I'm also on the look out for a photo editing quality display, with purchase on the same basis.

I've been browsing Amazon, but (for me) it is so, so slow today. Wonder why...

Re: Amazon Prime Day TODAY ONLY

Has anyone actually found any true bargains, things like proper camera equipment, decent spec memory cards, external HDDs? not just Hello Kitty pencil cases and Amazon Alexa tat??

Re: Amazon Prime Day TODAY ONLY

Just to confirm, if we buy from that link you’ll get some commission? Sorely tempted by a couple of items there (no idea why, I’ve got plenty of Lexar 1000 and 2000 x cards)
Same with any link you post here even if we navigate off to something else on Amazon?

I wasn't aware of the forum connection with Amazon until a couple of days ago, but in December 2015 I got a 40-150 2.8 Pro + MC-1.4 Teleconverter for 907.58, and in October 2016 I got a Pen-F + 17mm 1.8 for 769.30.
These deals do crop up from time to time, and are usually snapped up pretty quickly.

Re: Amazon Prime Day TODAY ONLY

Actually Stewart I was asking about bargains to be found today / tomorrow as part of Prime Day. A few have been highlighted, thanks to Ian, among others.
Amazon is my go to place for tech purchases but I always try to check I’m not paying over the odds, as can often happen.
