If the GoPro HERO4 Black is the action camera you want of the ever-increasing number of options out there, B&H Photo has a GoPro HERO4 Black bundle for $299 with free expedited shipping.

GoPROs have become a musician’s accessory these days as well with first-person and live footage being more and more common. So it is not a surprise that the GoPRO HERO5 Session is currently on sale for $250 with free shipping at Musician’s Friend. You can earn member rewards on the purchase if you are a member of their free Rewards program. Musician’s Friend has the same parent company as Guitar Center but their website operates separately.

GoPRO is no longer the only game in town when it comes to action cameras. YI technology (apparently action cameras hate long brand names mayhaps because there’s not a lot of space on the compact devices to write them on) is generating some buzz with their models, and at the moment, they have a combined purchase coupon and a freebie as well. The offers are stackable.
Here are the steps:
* start at the YI 4K+ Action Camera product page; page down until you…
* … locate the offer that says “Receive 1 Floating Grip free” (you will receive one FREE YI Floating Grip (randomly chosen color)
* hit the yellow “Add Both to Cart”
* if you don’t want the Gimbal, that’s it, proceed to checkout
* if you also want the Gimbal at 50% off, add the YI Gimbal 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer to the shopping cart and enter coupon code YIGIMBAL
* the coupon cuts the price of the Gimbal from $200 to $100
* your total is $340 (Action Cam) + $100 (Gimbal after coupon) = $440
The top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page looks like this when all is well and this offer is stacked:

This Tuesday lightning deal expired, but it is a semi-recurring item if you missed it…
One of the headliners of the Tuesday Lightning Deals of the Gold Box is live until 5:24pm ET (or earlier if sold out), it is the YI Gimbal 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer for Action Camera (Gimbal Only) offered for $159 with free shipping. The price before the sale was $199 last night. Camera NOT included.
Another new item is now in-stock and ready to ship, it is the GoPRO Karma quadcopter/drone available in two configurations. Drone-only goes for $800, while bundled with the GoPRO Hero5 BLACK goes for $1100. So there is a bundling discount, getting the Hero5 for $300 more, which defeats even the sale prices of the Hero5 at authorized dealers (it sometimes gets bundled with $60 store gift cards at $400).
UPDATE 3/31/17 the price dropped from $120 to $110; limit still five per customer.
In addition to the HERO4 Black we mentioned yesterday, also bubbling around in the eBay Deals, the official GoPRO eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished GoPRO HERO Session for $110 [WAS $120] with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from GoPRO. Limit five per buyer. Over 780 units sold from this listing per the eBay statistics over there.
Active-On, apply directly to the forehead! Ooops, wrong Active-ON 🙂 The new condition ActiveON CX 5MP Action Camera is currently on sale for $40 with free shipping for BJ Warehouse Club members. You can buy it online or in-store. This price is for paying BJ’s Warehouse members ($50 or $100 per year).
If you are not a member, you can buy it with a 15% surcharge using a free “One Day Pass” online or at their brick and mortar stores [see complete list of locations]. With the surcharge, this will jump to $46, putting very close to the Amazon price of $47.
If you purchase either the GoPRO HERO5 or the GoPRO Session 5 at their regular prices of $400 and $300 respectively, Adorama will automatically include for FREE the official GoPro 3-Way, 3-in-1 Mount for All GoPro Cameras. No coupon/rebate needed, just add to cart and proceed to checkout.

Another Black Friday 2016 offer is back on again, it’s the GoPro HERO5 Session bundled with a $45 Amazon plastic gift card, together going for $299 with free shipping.
The Yi action camera lightning deal sold out quickly, but here comes a sale (not a lightning deal) on a different one. The Veho Muvi K-Series K-2 NPNG kit, model VCC-006-K2NPNG, is on sale for $140 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. This is a superset of the standard kit that includes a rugged carrying case, and about half a dozen additional accessories.
On the other hand, if you don’t need the extra accessories, the standard kit goes for $135 with free shipping at Adorama (eg if you have Adorama gift certificates or promotional rewards waiting to get spent). If you want to do a detailed comparison of what’s included between the two kits, compare the “What’s In The Box” section on the right side of the Adorama product page between the standard kit and the more expensive kit.
This lightning deal sold out long before its 6-hour lightning deal window expired. Yi has its own mini hype train these days 🙂

If your order total there is $499+, your promotional gift card is $100.
Use coupon code MJCard16 to get the promotional gift card. Doing the time math, the promotion expires (if my time-math is correct) at 12/5/16 at 11:59pm ET. Here’s an annotated screenshot of their storewide promo gift card promotion:
The Black Friday offers were $60 store gift cards at Target and Amazon from what I recall.
