Amazon Camera Deals July 2011

I have found a lot of good camera deals on Amazon for the month, and since the camera posts seem to get the most looks, I thought I should make sure to share them here.

I'm a Canon girl, so this one has me the most excited.  There is a whole pile of Tamron lenses with mail-in rebates up to $150 right now.  Unlike some previous deals, this is just a matter of buying the lens you want and getting a rebate.  You don't have to buy the camera, or two lenses, or anything else special.  If there's one you've been drooling over, now is the time to buy.

Some of my favorites:

Because I'm all about equal opportunity, there are also some great Nikon deals right now.  Some are good for the point and shoots, and there are also some price breaks on the SLR and Nikkor lenses.  Here's the link to the Nikon store and list of bargains.

My highlights:
  • The Nikon Coolpix P7000, regularly $499, marked down to $374, and then take an extra $50 off instantly when you check out. 
  • Choose from several different Coolpix S80 cameras with an instant $50 off, bringing some of them down to $169 (the pink one below, for example).  That's a GREAT price.  Add in this cool little waterproof kit for free.

  • First, if you buy one of several qualifying Nikon DSLR camera, you will get up to $250 off an extra lens.  See the link here for all the details, but it includes the D90, D3000, D3100, D5100, and D7000.  The other freebies and discounts snowball, so hold on and read through it all.  Here's my best buy scenario.
Buy the Nikon 3100, marked down to $641.80.  Add in the Nikkor 55-200 mm zoom lens, which is already marked down to $149.99.  Use coupon code HET4HUMZ to save $100 instantly at checkout.  With that lens, you'll also get $9.95 off a Tiffen filter (details HERE) making the one below free.  So, you've gone from around $860 down to about $700 that quickly.

I know this is complicated, but you can also get $100 off a Coolpix when you buy an SLR.  If you're in need of a really good point and shoot camera, you can also get the P7000 shown above for an EXTRA $100 off with coupon code COOLPIX3.  Remember above, this one is already marked down.

Here we go!  I just added all 4 items to my cart, and came up with this:
Items (4):$1,175.74
Shipping & Handling:$0.00
Promotion Applied:-$9.95
Promotion Applied:

Total Before Tax:$1,065.79 

There's no tax where I live, and there's free shipping. It's only letting me add one coupon code, but I think if you call Amazon, they'll take the extra $100 for the Coolpix, which would get it under $1000 for all of that.

Here are the rest of the coupon codes for the all the lenses.
  • $250 off Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S ED VR II Nikkor Telephoto Zoom Lens. Enter code 8ZYPZGEX at checkout.
  • $200 off Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR Nikkor Zoom Lens. Enter code G9SZSJ8F at checkout.
  • $100 off Nikon 85mm f/3.5G AF-S DX ED VR Micro Nikkor Lens. Enter code J39Q4J5J at checkout.
  • $100 off Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens. Enter code 2TMTQOJ8 at checkout.
  • $100 off Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens. Enter code WS3A4ZGW at checkout.
  • $100 off Nikon 55-200mm f4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens. Enter code HET4HUMZ at checkout. 
You can do any combination of camera and lens, so this can change.  If you prefer the D5100, it will come with a free kit.  You could then get the lens and lens discount and the free filter.  See details on the free kit here.

See what you can do!  It looks like a great opportunity.
