BEST TECH DEALS

RAVPower FileHub | $40 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If you travel with any regularity, this versatile little gadget may just be your new best friend. They call it the RAVPower FileHub, but that name doesn’t do it justice, because it’s really three gadgets in one:

  • Travel Router: Turn any ethernet jack you find into a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can still come in handy at certain hotels and conventions.
  • 5,200mAh USB Battery Pack: Keep your phone and tablet charged during a long day away from any power outlets.
  • File Hub: Transfer files and wirelessly stream content from an SD card, hard drive, or flash drive to all of your devices. Imagine loading a cheap SD card up with movies for a long trip, instead of, say, buying a more expensive iPad with extra local storage.

TP-Link Archer C500 Modem/Router Combo | $99 | Amazon | Discount shown at checkout
Graphic: Shep McAllister

We generally recommend buying a separate modem and router, so that you can upgrade one as necessary without upgrading the other. But if you live in a fairly small home and would rather just have one device, this TP-Link combo is cheaper than ever at $99 today. If you’re paying your ISP a modem rental fee, this will put a stop to that (just check their site to make sure it’s compatible), and also serve as your Wi-Fi access point.


Sierra Modern Home SMH-TABL Studio Smart Table | $190 | Woot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

This end table does it all. Not only does the base include a bluetooth 360 degree speaker, the top is a Qi charger, so you can place your compatible devices next to you on the couch and they will charge wirelessly. Plus, it has the trendy mid-century modern design. Grab it for $190 on Woot today, down from the usual $220.


Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD | $218 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Replacing a hard drive with an SSD is one of the most worthwhile upgrades you perform on a computer, and Samsung’s 860 EVO is one of the best drives out there. The 1TB model is currently marked down to an all-time low $218, so go ahead and treat yourself.


15% off PicasoLabs Leather Sleeves | Promo code KINJA015 | Amazon | Plus $8 for custom engraving
Photo: Picaso Lab

Your laptop is one of the most expensive things you own, and it deserves to be treated as such. Rather than throwing it roughshod into your bag, slip it into one of PicasoLabs’ beautiful, hand-stitched leather sleeves, now back on sale just for our readers, this weekend only.

Jesus Diaz raved about these and interviewed the creator on Gizmodo a few years ago, and now you can pick your own from Amazon for 15% off with promo code KINJA015, plus $8 if you want it engraved.

There are several options available, and prices will vary depending on the size of your laptop. They’re all designed specifically for various MacBook models, but compare measurements, and you could probably find one to fit your Windows Ultrabook as well. No matter which one you choose, you’ll save 15% at checkout with that promo code.


Samsung U3 32GB MicroSD Card | $12 | Amazon
Samsung U3 64GB MicroSD Card | $18 | Amazon
Sandisk Ultra 200GB Micro | $56 | Amazon
Samsung U3 128GB MicroSD Card | $35 | Amazon
Samsung 256GB MicroSD Card | $90 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: All of these deals are still available, and still excellent, but we’ll add a mention of this 200GB SanDisk (a capacity that Samsung doesn’t offer) for $56. It was cheaper on Prime Day, but otherwise, that’s a very good deal.

Advertisement

Samsung’s U3-rated microSD cards are some of the fastest and most popular options out there—I have the 128GB model in my own Nintendo Switch—and all four sizes are down to new all-time low prices today on Amazon. If you need extra space for your action cam, smartphone, tablet, Switch, or anything else, these are extremely good deals


Roav by Anker Bluetooth Receiver | $16 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVB288
Photo: Anker

You don’t need to buy a new car, or even a new stereo to get Bluetooth streaming and hands-free calls in your older vehicle. You just need $16, an AUX jack, and an extra USB port. Use promo code ROAVB288 to save on this Anker Roav Bluetooth receiver, which includes a built-in mic.


Aukey 2.5" SSD/HDD External Enclosure | $11 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYB09
Aukey 3.5" SSD/HDD External Enclosure | $17 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYB08
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you have any old hard drives or SSDs lying around, you can give them a second lease on life with an inexpensive enclosure, which turns them into always-useful external storage devices.

Advertisement

3.5" and 2.5" options from Aukey are both on sale today, the latter of which runs over USB-C and includes a C-to-C cable, making it ideal for use with modern laptops. Just make sure to note the promo codes.


Mokcao Speaker Base For Echo Dot | $20 | Amazon | Promo code 6IKR8BVE
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon’s Echo Dot is a great voice assistant, and a truly terrible speaker. But for just $20 (with promo code 6IKR8BVE), you can drop it into this speaker base, which replaces its puny 3W driver with a stereo pair of booming 10W drivers. Plus, the built-in 5,000mAh battery pack lets you move it all around your house, and even doubles as a smartphone charger.

Note, the black one doesn’t have a ton of Amazon reviews, but you can read some more impressions on the white model’s product page.


Aukey HDMI Switch | $11 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEY004
Photo: Amazon

The government should mandate that all TVs come with at least five HDMI ports. I see no downside to this. Until I become president though, this $11 HDMI switcher will have to do. It basically turns one port into two, switches between devices at the press of a button. Just use promo code AUKEY004 at checkout to get it for $11.


Once you’ve use a CyberPower swiveling surge protector, every other outlet solution will feel inferior. Since it lets you position your plugs on the side, rather than sticking straight out, you can push furniture right up against the outlet. It’s a small detail that makes a huge difference. It’s down to $11 today, and even includes two USB ports (on the front, sadly).


VPNs have been in the news, and whether you want to get around video geoblocks, circumvent proxy filters, or just keep prying eyes out of your browsing data while using sketchy public Wi-Fi, reader-favorite Private Internet Access has a deal to fit your needs.

Advertisement

Last month, they offered our readers $10 off two year memberships, but this time around, you get a few more choices, ranging from a quick taste of the service to an extended commitment with additional savings:

These deals are only for our readers, but we aren’t sure how long they’ll be available, so go ahead and sign up while you can.

BEST HOME DEALS

Rajlinen Gold Box | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

On a lazy summer Sunday, Amazon is helping you want to stay in bed even more with this sheet sale. Choose from regular cotton or Egyptian cotton, with a king set for as low as $27. If you’ve been eyeing a new set of sheets, this is the sale for you. Stock up and enjoying being in bed even more.

Note: some sizes and styles aren’t marked down, so there’s a bit of a scavenger hunt to find ones that’ll work.


Otterbox Cooler Sale | Best Buy
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Otterbox, the brand you know well for creating indestructible phone cases, has expanded to include YETI-competitive coolers, tumblers, and accessories. And today, you can get one of their insanely cool Venture coolers on sale. Choose from their 45-qt cooler for $150, or a more manageable 25-qt for $115.


Joseph Joseph Cut & Carve Cutting Board | $16 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Joseph Joseph’s Cut & Carve cutting board is double sided, dishwasher safe, and angled to collect juices. One side even has spikes to hold your meat in place while you carve. No, it’s not as pretty as a butcher block, but it’s a functional cutting board that you’ll find yourself using every night. Get the black one for $16 today, down from the usual $20.


SimpleTaste Electric Foam Milk Frother | $9 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Do you need to have frothed milk every time you make espresso at home? I would think so. And if you’re on the same page, this $9 handheld, battery-operated whisk will help make any boring cup of espresso into a café-worthy beverage.


Zeppoli Wine Glass 4-Piece Set | $11 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

<Bad stand up comedian voice> What’s the deal with wine glass stems? You’re just going to break them, and for what, so your wine can float a few inches above the table?

Advertisement

Stemless glasses are less prone to shattering, take up less space in your cabinets, and most importantly of all, are dishwasher safe. So pick up a 4-pack of them for just $11 today.


Chef’sChoice ProntoPro | $26 | Woot
Graphic: Erica Offutt

It might be counterintuitive, but the sharper the knife is, the safer it is to use (because a sharper knife requires less force). This Chef’s Choice sharpener uses 100% diamond wheels in three stages to manually sharpen both serrated and non-serrated knives. Usually around $40, today’s price is a steal


Car Headrest Tablet Mount | $8 | Amazon | Use code MOUNT888
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Keep your backseat passengers entertained with this car headrest tablet and phone mount. It snaps into the metal bars in the headrest and can hold most tablets and phones. Use code MOUNT888 to get it for just $8.


Dyson Cool Link Wi-Fi Air Purifier | $300 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I know, I know. $300 is a lot to spend on an air purifier. But come on, look at this thing. With no visible blades, you could put your arm straight through the Dyson Cool Link. It also has a true HEPA filtration system (those don’t come cheap, even from other manufacturers), and with built-in Wi-Fi, you can even control it and monitor your room’s air quality from your phone, even if you’re away from home.

Advertisement

$300 is an unprecedented price, and in fact, Amazon’s currently selling refurbs for $29 more than the cost of a new one.


Heating Pads | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Soothe aches and pains with today’s heating pad Gold Box. They have a couple of different sizes, including an XXL heating pad, XL, and one designed for your neck and shoulders. Head over to Amazon if you’re in the market, your muscles will thank you.


Aukey Night Light, $13 with code AUKEYL33

Aukey made an orb of light that you can take anywhere, and it’s only $13 today with promo code AUKEYL33. The light can sit on your table, hang from above, stick to any magnetic surface, and even float in the pool while putting out five hours of light at max brightness with its built-in battery. Oh, it’s also an RGB lamp, so you can change its color too.


Peak Design Travel Line | Kickstarter
GIF: YouTube

Peak Design, maker of our readers’ favorite camera bags, is diving headfirst into the travel market, and you can save on its entire new travel line by backing it on Kickstarter.

Advertisement

Consisting of a backpack, a tech cube, a toiletry cube, packing cubes, and specialty camera cubes, you can mix and match various parts of the line depending on your needs for any given trip.

The thing that really sets the system apart is the backpack’s flexibility. You can unzip it from the back, the front, the top, or even the side while it’s dangling on one shoulder. You can carry it like a backpack, like a suitcase, or slip it over your luggage handle. The optional cubes are designed to fit snugly inside the backpack without any wasted space, and a small outer compartment can hold some additional flat items like clothing and documents. You can also unzip an expansion zipper to increase the backpack’s capacity from 45L to 55L, and even remove the divider between the compartments to use it as one big-ass duffel bag. It really is a bag for all occasions.

We’ve been fans of Peak Design for awhile now, and one thing that stands out about their products, besides the fact that they’re universally excellent, is that they hardly ever go on sale. So while this Kickstarter isn’t expected to ship rewards until December, you stand to save over 20% by backing it early. Trust us, once the travel line comes out, you’ll be waiting a long time for another deal that good.


20% off Laundry Essentials | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

No matter your favorite flavor of Tide Pod, it’s probably discounted with today’s 20% off coupon on Amazon.

Advertisement

These require you to Subscribe & Save, but you can cancel your subscription at any time after the first order ships. There’s also a Gain Flings option included in the sale, but let’s be honest, that’s like a Newman-O to Tide’s Oreos.


simplehuman is the company that makes our readers’ favorite trash cans, the only paper towel holders that don’t suck, next level shower caddies, and a bunch of other beautiful and functional pieces for your home. The caveat is that their products are normally pretty expensive and very rarely do they put anything on sale.

Advertisement

But, today they’re discounting this touch-free soap dispenser, which, among other special features, has a no-drip valve, so you don’t have to deal the gross crusty soap thats gets stuck to most other pumps. It normally sells for $40, but is just $32 today, which yes, is still maybe a little pricey for a soap dispenser, but it’s worth it if you’re in the market for an upgrade.


Buying new sheets, comforters, duvets, pillows, and the all accessories for a new King-sized bed can get very expensive. Amazon’s helping out by discounting this Pinzon all-season down comforter to just $32 for Prime members. That’s a third of the price it normally is and cheaper than the twin comforter. So, if you’re in the market, I wouldn’t hesitate.


3-Pack OxyLED Stick-Anywhere Lights | $20 | Amazon | Promo code TBONOM9A
Photo: Amazon

OxyLED’s motion-sensing T-02 lights are perfect for lighting up dark closets and cabinets without running any wires, and you can get a three-pack with rechargeable batteries for $20 today with promo code TBONOM9A.


Eufy Lumos Smart Bulb | $13 | Amazon

We’ve seen several deals recently on Anker’s hub-free smart light bulbs, but today’s discount is the best single-bulb price we’ve seen.

Advertisement

This particular bulb can’t display the full RGB spectrum like a Philips Hue lamp, or even different temperatures of white, but you can control and dim it from your phone, or with an Alexa or Google Assistant device, no hub required. And at $13 each, you can afford to put them all around your home.


Refurb Dyson V6 Animal | $160 | eBay

The Dyson V6 cordless vacuum is ideal for cleaning rugs, hardwood floors, car seats, ceilings, shelves...pretty much anything really, and you can get a refurb of the Animal version on Dyson’s eBay outlet today for $160, about $120 less than buying it new. Compared to the standard V6, this model has 75% more brush head power to lift pet hair and other debris out of carpets and furniture.

Advertisement

I bought this thing last year ago because I bought a dark couch, and was horrified to find out how much pet hair it collected. It’s a good vacuum. A very good vacuum.

If only the best will do, the even more powerful Dyson V10 Motorhead is also on sale for an all-time low $449 brand new, or $50 less than usual. Dyson is famously no longer developing corded vacuums, because this one is so damn good.


OXO made a fur-lifting brush for your rugs and carpets, which doesn’t seem all that interesting until you realize that it’s self cleaning. Every time you slide the housing back over the brush, it pushes all of the collected hair into a receptacle for easy removal.

Advertisement

Today’s deal is only a couple bucks less than usual, but it is an all-time low price. Shedding season is in full bloom, so today’s deal is perfectly timed.


All-Clad Tri-Ply 3-Quart Saute Pan with Lid, Silver | $80 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

All-Clad pans are among the most popular pieces of cookware we’ve ever posted, and Amazon’s marked the 3-quart saute pan down to $80.

Advertisement

This pan feature a durable stainless steel cooking surface, an even and rapid-heating aluminum core, and a beautiful stainless exterior, all sandwiched together to create the ultimate pan. And, like all All-Clad items, it comes with a lifetime warranty. The 3-quart saute pan would be great for one-dish meals or even making fried chicken.


WeMo Mini Smart Plug | $25 | Amazon

Belkin’s WeMo Mini Smart Plug recently got native Apple HomeKit support in a firmware update, and Amazon’s marking the occasion with a $25 sale.

Advertisement

Despite its diminutive size, this includes all the same features as the full-sized WeMo Switch, including IFTTT support, Alexa compatibility, and an Away mode that will randomize your lights to deter ne’er-do-wells.


70-Count Cascade Platinum Plus Dishwasher Tabs | $14 | Amazon | After $5 off coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You need dishwasher tabs anyway, so you might as well get them on sale. Clip the $5 coupon and use Subscribe & Save to get 70 Cascade Platinum Plus+ tabs delivered from Amazon for just $14. Just remember to cancel the subscription if you don’t want to keep receiving them.


Tacklife Heat Gun | $19 | Amazon | Promo code DWYPWP7W

A heat gun probably isn’t something you’ll use every day, but it’s definitely worth having one in your toolbox; just look at a few of the ideas from Lifehacker below. This model is a bit more expensive than some others we’ve seen, but it has three temperature settings (including a 122 degree cool-down mode), and four attachments to help you channel the heat properly for different jobs.Get it for $19 with promo code DWYPWP7W.


Snack Sample Box | $10 | Amazon | Plus $10 credit towards a future snack purchase
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Back in stock!

If you missed it during its brief window of availability earlier this month, Amazon’s snack sample box up for order, and it’s basically free.

Advertisement

Spend $10 to get eight or more snack samples to munch on, and then use the included $10 credit to buy more of your favorites. The exact contents of the box will vary, but RXBARS cost about $2 each at the store, and it seems like you’ll get a nice mix of healthy options and indulgent junk food.


Tacklife Electric Arc Lighter | $10 | Amazon | Promo code GXQYBMVT

It’s 2018, and your lighter doesn’t need fuel anymore; it just has to charge over USB. This discounted arc lighter isn’t really pocket-friendly, but its long, flexible neck makes it ideal for lighting candles, camp fires and other awkwardly-placed flammable things. Just charge the built-in battery, and you’ll be good to go for up to 1,000 uses before you have to plug it in again.

Get it for $10 today with promo code GXQYBMVT, which is the best price we’ve ever seen on one of these.

BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

The Claw claims to be the world’s smallest multitool, and there’s really no reason to doubt it. Roughly the same length as a penny, the little piece of titanium can open bottles and paint cans, turn screws, wedge open key rings, remove staples, and most critically of all, open up boxes that you ordered from Kinja Deals.

Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Similar to the popular Sport-Brella, this pop-up cabana is meant to a provide shade without completely isolating you from the beach views. It sets up quickly, has mesh on all three sides for ventilation, and stakes into the ground to keep it from blowing away. Plus, it’s just $27 right now with the promo code CX6V8EPN.


Up to 50% off select styles | GREATS
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

You’ve probably seen an ad for GREATS on Facebook or Instagram, and I’m happy to report that they aren’t a scam. I own a pair of Royales and they’re my go-to sneaker for when I want to be comfortable but also want to look like I give a shit (which is how I feel most of the time). Right now, they’re having a Summer Sale, which means up to 50% off select styles for both men and women.


Extra 40% off sale styles | Madewell | Use code SHORETHING
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

It’s been a couple months since we’ve seen extra discounts from Madewell, and it’s come at a perfect time to spend all the money you should be saving for vacations. Use the code SHORETHING and get an extra 40% off every sale item they have, which is 375 choices. Boots, sweaters, scarves, and some off-season styles are all in there for the taking.

Update: Get your orders in this weekend before this sale ends!

Yes, it’s happening again. Nordstrom Rack has brought back their Clear the Rack sale and it’s full (and I mean FULL) of really incredible deals. Designer clothing, brands you’ve never heard of, everything in clearance an extra 25% off their already discounted prices.

And don’t forget, Nordstrom proper is still in the midst of its anniversary sale, if you don’t find everything you need at Rack.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, what are you even doing on Kinja Deals? The largest of the three annual sales Nordstrom runs, the Anniversary Sale discounts thousands of fall and winter styles way before they make it into brick and mortar Nordstrom stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it. The sale ends on August 5.

BEST MEDIA DEALS

Book Club Pick Kindle ebook sale | Amazon
Screenshot: Amazon

Sunday Kindle ebook sales are basically a Sunday Amazon tradition at this point, but this one is all book club titles like Pachinko and All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, just to name a few. Everything’s priced at just $2-$4, so this is a great chance to load up your digital library.


Humble Bundle: Cookbook ebooks | Humble
Screenshot: Humble

The newest Humble Bundle is specially made for your foodies out there. Take your pick between a bunch of ebook cookbooks, with some geared towards special diets, like Paleo and gluten-free, some focused on grilled cheese, one-dish recipes, and soups, and for the fans of fine dining, James Beard Best of the Best.

As usual, they’re split among three different price tiers, and you can get them all for as little as $15.


Preorder Fallout: The Vault Dweller’s Cookbook | $21 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’ve ever played a Fallout game, and thought the food looked really good, you should both seek professional help, and also preorder this Fallout Vault Dweller’s cookbook, on sale for an all-time low $21, with preorder price guarantee if it gets any cheaper.

Advertisement

Obviously, the Fallout-centric ingredients are substituted for things you could find at the supermarket; brahmin ribs become short ribs, for example. I’m not sure what they use for radroach meat though.


iTunes gift card discounts are noticeably less common than they used to be, so if you need more credit for apps, music, movies, iCloud storage, or anything else, buy a gift card or two from Best Buy for 15% off, in a variety of denominations.


Snow Crash [Kindle] | $2 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

1992's Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson is one of Cyberpunk’s defining texts, and an all-too-familiar send-up of modern capitalism. Download it straight to your Kindle for just $2 today.

From Amazon:

From the opening line of his breakthrough cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, Neal Stephenson plunges the reader into a not-too-distant future. It is a world where the Mafia controls pizza delivery, the United States exists as a patchwork of corporate-franchise city-states, and the Internet—incarnate as the Metaverse—looks something like last year’s hype would lead you to believe it should. Enter Hiro Protagonist—hacker, samurai swordsman, and pizza-delivery driver. When his best friend fries his brain on a new designer drug called Snow Crash and his beautiful, brainy ex-girlfriend asks for his help, what’s a guy with a name like that to do? He rushes to the rescue. A breakneck-paced 21st-century novel, Snow Crash interweaves everything from Sumerian myth to visions of a postmodern civilization on the brink of collapse. Faster than the speed of television and a whole lot more fun, Snow Crash is the portrayal of a future that is bizarre enough to be plausible.


3-Month Audible Subscription | $15 | Amazon | Prime Members only
Graphic: Amazon

Update: This sale was supposed to end with Prime Day, but it’s been extended through the end of the month. But it’s still only available for Prime members.

Advertisement

Love to read but don’t have the time to sit down and actually read a book? Sign up for Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible for 66% less than usual during their Prime Day promotion.

For a limited time, Prime members can get three months of the service for $5 each, down from the usual $15. That entitles you to a new book of your choice each month, and everything you buy is yours to keep, even if you cancel after the three month promotional period ends. The offer is available to new subscribers only.

BEST GAMING DEALS

Funko Plush Cuphead Collectible Figure | $13 | Amazon
Funko Plush Mugman Collectible Figure | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Cuphead’s art style is unmistakeable, and now you can bring that home with you with these really Funko adorable plushes. For just $13 each, put Cuphead and Mugman on your bed or desk or shelf and show of your affinity for hand-drawn video games and frustratingly weird boss battles.


Inflatable Pool Beer Pong Set with Cooler | $32 | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

Sharpen up your beer pong skills from the comfort of a pool with this floating beer pong table. It even has a cooler in the middle to store your beers, and it’s $5 off right now. Use the money you save to buy slightly higher quality beer, because we’re adults now.


These 3/4 sized Arcade1Up arcade cabinets were supposed to cost $399 each, and indeed, that’s what GameStop is charging for preorders. But ever since last night, Walmart’s only been asking for $299. We aren’t sure if it’s a mistake (in which case your order stands to possibly be canceled) or intentional, but if you’ve got the space and the love for old arcade games, these things look amazing.

Advertisement

Update: GameStop has lowered its price to $300 as well, so maybe Arcade1Up changed its mind on the MSRP. The good news is that your orders aren’t likely to be canceled!


1 Year Xbox Live Gold | $40 | Microsoft
3 Month Xbox Game Pass | $10 | Microsoft
Graphic: Shep McAllister

In case you missed it in the wake of Prime Day, Microsoft is currently running some of the best deals ever on Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, its Netflix for video games. Both deals expire at the end of the month.

Advertisement

The former is $20 off, down to $40, which is about as cheap as it ever gets these days. The latter is just $10 for a three month subscription, which is what you’d normally pay for a single month. Both subscriptions will auto-renew at the regular prices though, so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t wish to continue.


The days of $40 PlayStation Plus sales are mostly behind us, so if your membership is set to expire soon, you may want to pick up another year for $47, or over 20% below retail.

Xbox owners, there’s an even better deal available for you right now.


Humble Monthly | Humble
Graphic: Humble

Humble Monthly remains one of the best deals in gaming, and the latest month’s early access titles include The Escapists 2, A Hat in Time, and Conan Exiles. Plus, more unannounced games will unlock on August 3 for all subscribers. As always, Humble Monthly is only $12 per month (or $11 if you prepay for a full year), and every game you get is yours to keep forever, even if you cancel.


Nintendo Switch + Choice of Game | $329 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It would have been easy to miss during the Prime Day commotion, but Walmart put up a pretty enticing Nintendo Switch deal to combat Amazon, and it’s still available.

Advertisement

For $329, you’ll get a Switch console in either grey or neon, plus your choice of either Super Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Those are all stellar games, and you’d almost certainly be buying at least one of them with the Switch anyway, so you’re basically getting it for half off.
