#1: call of duty: black ops cold war

Another year, another Call of Duty game. War truly does never change. This year’s installment, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, is currently $10 off at Walmart. That means you can grab PS5/Series X versions for $60 and PS4/Xbox One editions for $50. Here’s a bit of a PSA if you’re not sure which version to grab. You’ll be able to upgrade the PS4 version to the PS5 one, though it will cost you a fee and you’ll always need the disc in the console to access it (sorry, trade-in gang). You won’t be ale to upgrade the Xbox One version if you’re thinking of getting a Series X later. Got it? With that out of the way, the PlayStation 5 version takes advantage of the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers to give each gun different feedback when firing. If nothing else, it’s a good way to test how that controller could change shooters this generation.

Hey toolheads—no, I’m not talking about fans of the band Tool (though I imagine there’s some overlap), I’m talking to the people who love power tools and can’t get enough of ‘em—Home Depot’s got a throuple of Milwaukee bundles on sale! Save $140 on the M12 12-volt lithium-ion cordless combo kit that squeezes a drill/driver, impact driver, Hackzall, rotary tool, three batteries, a tool bag, and a charger all into one box. Up your DIY game to 20,000 OPM with an M12 multi-tool kit for $99, impact driver, battery, and charger included. And last but not least, strip 50% off a ratchet and screwdriver combo kit, complete with a battery and charger.

Part of the M12 family of tools, all three of these sets are compatible with one another’s batteries and accessories and highly reviewed to boot. Of the trio, you’ll get the deepest savings from the 12-volt cordless combo tool kit, which normally runs $339, and includes most of the things you’d need to get started on your next DIY project. Wield a Hackzall that can cut through lumber, then sand down the edges with the enclosed rotary tool. Power through even the toughest screw with a power drill and driver. And if that doesn’t do the trick, the impact driver probably will. Unbound by oppressive cables, pull the trigger on your next cordless power tool purchase while supplies last.

There’s no way being shot in the face with an infrared thermometer will ever be comfortable. I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art a month or two ago and immediately when you walk in they take your temperate like this. In fact, there have been several establishments I’ve been in that are doing this. If you’re in looking for a way to find out if someone is running a fever without touching them this is for you. Save $16 on this Non-Contact Infrared Forehead Thermometer.

Get an accurate read in me seconds that easy to read. This is pretty helpful both for efficiency and if you have a fussy baby or child whose window to sit still is small. And it being no contact is pretty ideal right now. The trigger is comfy to hold and simple to use. This thermometer is FDA authorized and CE certified. You just need to grab two AA batteries (which are not included) to get it fired up.

If you’ve read a few of our pieces on MorningSave before and you like what you’ve seen they offer a $5 monthly fee to get free shipping on all of your orders no matter how many. Otherwise, it’s a flat rate of $8.

#9: Nintendo switch bundle

When you buy a Nintendo Switch, there’s some secret costs involved if you want to get the most out of the console. You’ll want a microSD card to expands its small storage. Maybe you’ll pick up an extra pair of joy-cons for multiplayer. There’s the Pro Controller too, for the hardcore crowd. But above anything else, there’s one thing you can’t live without: a carrying case. If you’re planning on taking it on the go, it’s non-negotiable unless you’re just dying to scratch the screen. Walmart has a handy Switch bundle up, which includes a neon blue carrying case. It also comes with 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online, so you can play games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe online. Of all the Switch bundles we’ve seen lately, this is one of the more practical options out there.

If you’re on the hunt for good stocking stuffers or just great smelling seasonal beauty items it’s your lucky day. Sweet & Shimmer’s Holiday Collection was just added to Ulta and nothing is more than $5. And the items that are $5, well Ulta is running a deal where if you pick 5 you get them for only $10.

Sparkly bobby pins, Christmas manicure sets, and shimmery body mists are just a few of the offerings in that $5 section. But the real winners are in the new festive scents. Peppermint, gumdrop, and sugar cookie are coming at you in lip balm, hand lotion, and sanitizer form. Given 2020 these are all the things we’re are burning through. There are a few other things like bath fizzer and bubble bath but those you can’t really use on the go. And of course, they’ve got scented wipes if you want to round out a set of one specific smell. The best thing is everything I mentioned is just $1.
