Apple Macbook Pro, iMac, Macbook, and more: B&H Photo
These products are rarely on sale so might as well save a few $100 while you can

Canon T6i - $699 w/lens + bag + 32GB Sandisk Extreme card
Great camera, $250 off, and free stuff make this a win

Nikon D5300 - $599 + 2 lenses
This is over $500 off!

Sony Alpha A6300 - $999 + $100 gift card
Not the greatest deal as far as savings go but the best yet on this amazing camera

DJI Phantom 3 Standard - $449 + Extra Battery
The standard for drones offering great quality for the price and the much needed extra battery. If you are ready to go all out, pick up the Phantom 4 4K with a bunch of extras for $999

GoPro Hero - $89
This may be a base level GoPro but for under $100 you score a great camera that can take a beating

Nikon D3400 - $499 w/2 lenses
This base level DSLR with 2 lenses is a great way to get a quality system on a budget

Amazon Echo Dot - $39
OK...not camera related. But I have this hooked up to my stereo and it's AWESOME!

Panasonic G7 w/kit lens $499 + $50 Gift Card
This is a camera I personally own. Simply put, it takes great pictures and offers unrivaled video performance for the price with tons of awesome features such as WIFI.

Sony A6000 w/lens - $549
Great quality still images and 1080p video make this a great mirrorless camera for those who may want something a little smaller than a traditional DSLR

Sandisk UltraFit USB 3.0 64GB Flash Drive - $12.99
Great deal on a solid, fast, and small flash drive. Also available in 128GB for only $22.99

Sandisk Extreme Portable SSD 480GB - $129
If you plan on working off of external storage, this is the drive to get. Fast as hell, SSD, built like a tank with shock resistance, and plenty of storage for an awesome sale price.

Blue Snowball USB Microphone - $39
Whether upgrading your built in computer mic for better video calling or looking to make better sounding videos for youtube, the Snowball offers much better quality for a low price. Upgrade to the Blue Yeti for even better quality in addition to Headphone/line outputs which is great for singers and musicians to record their songs for $89.

Google Chromecast and Chromecast Audio $25
This is probably one of my favorite devices ever invented. If you don't own at least 1 of these, you absolutely should. At $25, there is no reason to not. You also should have a chromecast audio hooked up to every entertainment center or speaker system you have!
