The SteelSeries Apex 7 mechanical gaming keyboard is down to $139.99 on Amazon. This is a price match of the same deal going on at Best Buy.

This is the first price drop we've seen from Amazon, actually, which also makes this a new low. This deal only applies to the Red switches as the Brown and Blue versions of the keyboard are still selling at a regular price above $156.
