Nine digicams in Office Max's sunday paper circular ad

While perusing the Office Max circular ad in the Sunday paper, we have noted nine digital cameras advertised, which is usually higher than the average number of cameras advertised in Sunday paper circulars. So let's see what they have!

There is one DSLR, the Nikon D40 with the 18-55 DX kit lens at $530. Not a competitive price to online retailers, but if you have a $500 Office Max gift card to burn...

The long zoom Canon S5 IS is offered at $380, again not a dramatic price. Not quite long zoom, but with a 5X lens is the Kodak Z855, which includes a free 1gb SD card and free tripod bonus, all for the price of $180. This is not a bad price!

Another affordable bundle from Kodak, which includes a free 1gb SD card but no tripod, at $110, is the Kodak M753. This is a good price given that you get the free memory card. So much so, that we will upgrade it to a BARGAIN ALERT!

More from Kodak, the 12 megapixel Kodak V1253 is offered at $200 as a special purchase. Special if you like to buy megapixels by the pound :-)

For the entry-level buyers out there, the Nikon Coolpix L14, with a free 1gb SD card is offered at $130. This is another price to take a look into because of the free card.

Without a freebie and at $180, we find the Sony Cybershot W80. This camera has fallen from the resistance point of $200, and it may be a good price for brick and mortar. I'm not sure on this one.

Another temptation, at $180 with a free 1gb SD card is the Canon SD 1000. Please keep in mind however that a brand new Canon SD1100 IS has just been announced, and it does include IS, while the SD1000 does not include IS.

Last but not least at $220 and with a free camera bag (I kid you not) is the Olympus FE-300, the flagship of the previous geneeration of FE- Oly cameras. Please note however that this onlytakes xD Memory cards!

And speaking of memory cards, we have the following specials: 4gb A-Data Turbo SDHC available at $20 as a special purchase. That's just $5 per gigabyte! Meanwhile a LEXAR Phone Memory 2GB Micro SD Card is offered at $30, while regular size Lexar cards start at $10. See store or website for more details on the Lexars.

One more thing: There is a special financing option:

NO PAYMENT, NO INTEREST FOR 90 DAYS ON ALL PURCHASES OF $199.99 AND MORE MADE ON YOUR OFFICEMAX CREDIT CARD


But wait, there's more! You can save 50% off on select clearance cameras! This is no joke. You can find some nice deals - if you are lucky and if the cameras they have on sale are of interest to you. Needless to say this is like a lottery ticket. But I have seen a couple of times some nice deals thru this type of a clearance sale. I will report back after I visit my local store.
