If you are a fan of AC Delco single-use AA alkaline batteries, their 100-pack of “AC Delco Super” are on sale for the very specific price of $15.07 at Amazon by Amazon itself, with a limit of one set per customer. These are also available through “Subscribe and Save” (SaS) for $14.32 or less.

But you can get 5-15% off on the then-current prices depending on how many SaS items you have that month.
If you need more, the AmaznoBasics 100-pack goes for the very specific price of $15.79.

Also part of the NAB 2017 sale-a-brations, Adorama has launched a diverse but video-centric NAB sale featuring Rokinon Cine lenses, a variety of lightning and studio equipment, various video-friendly cameras and camcorders, tripods, computers and more. Lots of products are offered, too many to list here individually.
In parallel, there is a freebie promotion on select LaCIE Thunderbolt Storage Arrays, you get a FREE Pelican case and a FREE Apple adapter. Eight options are available and prices range from $2999 all the way up to $9999.
UPDATE: they have also launched a 48-Hour Sale featuring a pot-pouri of camera and photo gear (a total of 33 options).
To celebrate the NAB 2017 trade show [see Trade Show Calendar], Adorama is offering 10% off on select Lexar products (eight options, card readers and Professional xQD and Compactflash cards) with coupon code NAB102017 which expires 4/29/17.
On the waterproof cameras front, the lime-green Fuji XP90 is offered in certified refurbished condition for $105 with free shipping by a 3rd-party seller with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so you get free 2-day shipping as a member.
NOTE #1: the seller’s name is “Prime Deal” but it has nothing to do with Amazon. I do not know why Amazon allows 3rd-party sellers to use names that can confuse the casual shopper into thinking this is Amazon.
NOTE #2: “certified refurbished” at Amazon is a term Amazon defines products that have a 90-day minimum warranty but they can be refurbished by anyone, manufacturer, 3rd-party, seller, unicorns, etc. They have created a portal dedicated to certified refurbished products over there.
As of a 4/17/17 AM recheck, the price jumped up up up and away, but the prices of these things changes all the time…
