~$10 cool accessory?

I'm buying the JOBY Pro Sling Strap at B&H which sells for $39. I wanted to reach the $49 for the free shipping. Is there anything around $10 which might not be necessary but cool to have...?

For about $800 more you can get a K-3!

Maybe a memory card or some cleaning supplies can end up being useful?

How about a lens pen? I always have one of these in all my cam bags for cleaning lenses and cams:
Lenspen LensPen Professional (Black) NLP-1CPB B&H Photo Video

A rocket blower is a must have cleaning tool too, though this is only 9.75
Giottos Rocket Blaster Dust-Removal Tool (Large, Black) AA1900

or a lens case, lens hood, circular polarizer, filter holder, neutral density filter, a how to book?

Ditto on the LensPen and Rocket Blower. Can't imagine a camera bag without them.

I have to say, the rocket blower is really good to have around. It's too bad it's just under $10. Maybe a few rolls of film?

If you want that strap for Christmas, be aware the free shipping could be UPS "Sure Post", which means it comes finally thru the post office. My free shipping took almost two weeks to arrive. I will always add the extra for UPS Ground or Priority in the future.

Rocket blower is great, as is a soft brush for lenses.

Other useful items are things like lens cases, spare lens caps etc.

But, I like the idea of a few rolls of film, you can never really have enough film.

Batteries? Not cool but always practical.

My wife would like to argue this point with you because she wants her refrigerator back.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the suggestions. I already have a blower as well as lens-cleaning pen (I bought it all as a cleaning kit from amazon a couple months ago). I also have batteries (3 in total).

The other day I was at a family member's house and I had shot some pictures and they wanted to see it in their tv but I needed to pass them to a usb drive to connect to the tv but their computer didnt have a card reader so I couldnt do it. So I decided to buy a portable card reader for such situation. It was $12.
