Adorama has also launched their Black Friday specials on select Canon DSLRs and DSLR Lenses and Speedlites (flashes) and Fixed Lens Cameras. Free accessories and/or promotional rewards and/or mail-in rebates, and free shipping are included. Due to time constraints I cannot price check every item listed there, that is a DIY adventure for any item(s) you may be interested in.
Adorama has launched a wave of Nikon offers. A number of cameras includes extra accessories and/or promotional rewards and free shipping. They have separate pages for their DSLR offerings and Mirrorless offerings and P&S offerings. Due to time constraints I can’t price check every single item listed in all those pages, so that is a DIY adventure.
Memory card action! The 64GB Patriot Class 10 SDXC memory card, model PSF64GSDXC10, is currently on sale for $25 at Amazon by Amazon herself with a limit of five per shopping cart. This is not part of the lightning deals. It is either a random sale or a price-match. This is part of the Patriot LX series.
The Tamron 16-300mm f3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens goes for $580 after a $50 mail-in rebate at the moment. However, if you want a better value, Adorama has a bundle that includes the following bonus accessories automatically included by Adorama in your order: a 3 year New Leaf Spills and Drops warranty and a 67mm Filter Kit (UV/CPL/ND2), and holster case and cleaning kit and capleash that goes for $592 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
So for an extra $12 you get the warranty, filters, case, and other small accessories. You still have to do the mail-in rebate regardless. It is available for Alpha DSLRs and Nikon DSLRs and Canon DSLRs. Promotion ends 12/1/14.

As part of an online pre-Black-Friday sale (not related to the Early Access sale with promo codes we mentioned yesterday), Best Buy is offering the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition for $500 bundled with a $20 Best Buy Gift Card and free shipping… OTOH, for the same price, but without a gift card, Amazon has a Starter bundle with free 32GB Sandisk microSDHC and GoPro Headstrap Mount + Quick Clip ($12 on its own). So unless you need the 32GB Sandisk card, the Best Buy offer is a better value.
The Nikon Coolpix P530 superzoom goes for $300 in new condition (with free accessories at B&H and Beach at Amazon), but if you want to pay a lower out of the wallet price, you can get it factory refurbished for $230 with free shipping and 45-day returns at BuyDig.com.
