Office Depot pay nothing until January 2009 digital camera promotion

Perusing the digital camera section of this week's Office Depot circular ad, we find a special financing offer, pay nothing on purchases until January 2009. That's a year! For this promo, you have to use your Worklife Rewards Vis credit card (Office Depot branded Visa card), and buy at least $499. If you don't have the card, they'll be more than happy to take your application in-store.

To make this more enticing, they have a 15% discount on Sony and Canon digital cameras priced $199.99 or more, with some exceptions. Those two, Canon and Sony, the two market share leaders in the USA market. Their accountants are smart! Discount and finance promo ---> shopping spree!

The prices below are after the 15% discount - we are doing the math, so you don't have to:

  • Canon Digital Rebel XT (350D), with 18-55 EF-S lens, around $468, which is about the same price as Amazon.
  • Canon S5 IS, $340, another reasonable price.
  • Canon SD750, has a big screen, but no IS/OS, and slightly older model at $213.
  • Canon SD850 IS, has IS, but does not start at wide-angle. Price is $255. BARGAIN ALERT!. Drop everything and run! This goes for around $300 at Amazon!
  • Canon SD1000. This is the bread and butter, mass market, Elphie. The $170 price is also nice and neat!
  • Sony H7, their 15x optical super zoom, that received a lukewarm welcome by super zoom fans. Price? $297 or so.

    Also 15% off are all digital frames, except the ones that are on clearance or discountinued. If you prefer to use an HDTV as a glorified digital picture frame, you can buy a 32" Olevia for $700.

    Memory cards
    A 4gb Memory Stick from Sony itself goes for $55, a welcome price since the lower capacities are much more expensive per gigabyte. Compact flash users may be interested in the 2gb Ativa (ODP's house brand) for $25, while microSD users can get a 2gb version at the same price, from the same brand. Last but not least, a 4gb Sandisk SDHC card is avaialble at $35. This is the standard SD memory card, the Ultra and Extreme versions usually cost more since they are faster and such.

    And something while you are on the road: You can get a music maker (portable mp3 player) for just $35 and it takes microSD cards for expansion. We are talking about the 1gb Sandisk Clip, it also has a built-in USB port. But be warned, it has an internal li-ion battery. But instead of paying $80 for an Apple, you just pay $35 and you can use your microSD cards on it as well!
