The Verge reports that the New York Attorney General believes retailer B&H has dodged over $7,000,000 in taxes in a lawsuit filed recently. It’s all to do with the “Instant Rebate” offers, which are common amongst online retailers these days. The suit claims that B&H has “cheated” the NY sales tax and that they “chose profits over principles”. The investigation and lawsuit come as a response to a whistleblower they say approached them in January 2016.
If you’re looking for a new speedlight, modifier, a transmitter, or even studio accessories – now’s the perfect time to visit B&H. There are plenty of items on a discount, especially Godox flashes, and some of these deals could save you over $100. If you order a few items… well, it adds up! I guess Black Friday came early at B&H, so check out the offer and see if there’s something for you.
The competition on motorised gimbals these days is pretty intense. They didn’t even really exist a few years ago, except for small devices like phones, action cameras, and drones, but now there are a number of companies producing some solid piece of gear. And these companies are generally pretty secretive about new releases, right up until they’re ready to announce them.
One of the biggest names in gimbals is Zhiyun, who was pretty much an instant hit since they introduced their first Zhiyun Crane back in 2016, and they’ve been going from strength to strength ever since. It turns out they had a new gimbal on the way, the Weebill-S, but B&H broke the secrecy and leaked it ahead of their own official announcement.
Ahead of the Amazon Prime Day sales, B&H is offering some big savings on select Sony, Nikon, Canon and Panasonic cameras and lenses, with instant discounts of up to $1,000. We’ve had a look through their current specials to find the best deals with the biggest savings for photographers and filmmakers.
B&H has sent out an email to customers who recently purchased Nikon EN-EL15b batteries. Nikon Rumors posted a screenshot of the email, which states that they received a “subpar” batch of batteries, and as they have no way to know which customers received which batteries, they’re sending out replacements to everybody, and advising that you safely discard the ones you have received.
A few months ago when it was announced that B&H (and other online retailers) had to start collecting sales tax for a whole bunch of states, a lot of people weren’t very happy. Of course, it’s not B&H’s fault, however, they decided to do something about it anyway.
Today they’ve just announced a new “B&H Payboo Card“. They’re calling it a “game-changing” credit card, and it’s their solution to sales tax by giving it back to you.
Update: If you’ve missed this deal at B&H, then Amazon currently has the 10TB Western Digital Elements for $159.99.
B&H currently has the Western Digital 10TB My Book Desktop USB 3.0 external hard drive on massive discount until the end of today. With $100 off, they’ve been reduced from $279.99 to $179.99. That’s only $10 over the regular price of an 8TB drive.
