Flash! The new condition Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight flash is currently on sale for $280.50 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of ten units per customer. This is not a lightning deal.

The “Soft White” offer continues, a 16-pack of Philips LED light bulbs, 60W equivalent, are on sale for $32~ at Amazon by Amazon itself. This makes it around $2 per light bulb (I didn’t even need to use a calculator for the complex math!).
The “Daylight” offer expired:
Which brings us to a pretty good LED deal, a 16-pack of Philips LED Daylight light bulbs, 60W equivalent, are on sale for $24.56 at Amazon by Amazon itself.
