Any good websites with a collection of programs that can be loaded onto this, so you don't have to program it yourself?

  https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/   Once you select your OS, you can decide what available apps to install.  I use one with motioneye OS  but that requires adding a camera module at a few times this price.

Were you perhaps thinking of Arduino script instead of this??

I live too far away

The Pi Zero W (wireless built in) was $10, so this is half off.
The original Pi Zero (no wireless) was $5.

Don't forget to bring an empty ink cartridge with you. Microcenter will give you $3 coupon for empty ink cartridge, making this $2 + tax.

  I use one attached to my 3D printer to control it remotely using "Astroprint ".  Another similar program is "Octoprint "  I also use one with a camera module to take time lapse images using Motioneye OS

  Roger that!
I have 2 Pi Zero's - they are so small I have lost them more than once while I try to figure out what to do with them! :-D
I have a buddy in Colorado that picked up a couple of them a while ago I should see if he can grab me a couple more at that price before he comes to AZ to visit!

  A popular project is to turn it into a retro gaming machine. It can emulate systems through the 16 bit era perfectly.

  They only take specific brands of ink cartridges.

  we used a couple to convert old flat panel monitors into picture frames for grandma and great grandma. Powered by the USB from the monitor, velcro to back of monitor. One of my kids wrote some scripts to keep them updated from a folder all the kids can access remotely to add pictures. Makes for happy grandmas.

I also thought of doing that but ran into a problem as my "old" monitors don't have neither an HDMI or a USB.

Does anyone have a link that shows information on what brand carts are accepted for this $3 credit?

I went to pick up a couple today.  I purposefully brought my wife to buy a second one.  They said it is one per household not per person.  I guess that's fair, but I was disappointed.
