Ricoh Theta M15 360 Degree Spherical Camera for $98

This camera is not eligible for the 20% Prime Credit Card Statement credit promotion but it looks like a 3rd-party seller has “tricked” Amazon’s own price bots to price-match them, dropping the blue color scheme of the Ricoh Theta M15 360 Degree Spherical Panorama Camera to the very specific price of $98.24 with up to three units per customer at this price.

The other three colors range from $100 to $110 but they are sold by 3rd party seller “Kanga Supply” with the orders fulfilled by Amazon. Kanga also offers the blue for $98, which is what likely triggered Amazon’s own price to drop for that particular color.
