BEST TECH DEALS

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Deep Radiance Wireless Mobile Bluetooth Speaker | $140 | Amazon
Refurb Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Portable Bluetooth Speaker | $45 | Daily Steals | Promo code KINJABOOM
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Need to fill a large backyard or house party with terrific sounding music? Ultimate Ears’ MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker is the extra large, waterproof version of the best Bluetooth speaker on the market, and Amazon’s marked the ”Deep Radiance” model down to $140 today, which is over $100 less than usual, and one of the best prices we’ve seen.

If you don’t need your speaker to be quite that loud, the UE WONDERBOOM is an adorable little speaker that punches above its weight in both sound quality and features, packing in IPX7 water resistance, 360 degree sound, and even multi-room audio with other UE speakers (including the aforementioned MEGABOOM. Get a refurb for just $45 today with promo code KINJABOOM.


Anker SoundBuds Slim | $19 | Amazon | Promo code WE5B8NAH

Anker’s SoundBuds Slims are our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, and you can grab a pair for just $19 with promo code WE5B8NAH, or $7 less than usual.

Advertisement

The SoundBuds Slim are, as you might have gleaned from the name, far smaller than the original SoundBuds. Heck, they look like a small set of wired earbuds; you might never guess there were batteries and Bluetooth radios in there. Despite the size, these buds are still rated for seven hours of battery life, and recharge fully in just 90 minutes.


Yi Discovery Action Cam | $45 | Amazon | Promo code YIDISCOV
Photo: Amazon

The original reader-favorite Yi action cam has spawned an entire product line, and the new entry level model just got its biggest discount yet.

Advertisement

The Yi Discovery lacks the electronic image stabilization of the more expensive Yi Lite, and can only take 8 MP stills compared to 16 MP, but they both shoot 4K/20 and 1080/60 footage, and at just $45 with promo code YIDISCOV, the Discovery is worth checking out if you just need a rugged camera that can handle the basics.


Apple Watch Series 1 38mm | $149 | Walmart
Apple Watch Series 1 42mm | $179 | Walmart
Photo: Gizmodo

It’s not one of the high-end models with GPS or LTE, but $149 for a 38mm Apple Watch Series 1 (or $179 for the 42mm) is one of the best deals we’ve ever seen on Apple’s increasingly popular wearable.

Advertisement

Somewhat confusingly, the Series 1 is not quite the same as the original Apple Watch, as it has a second generation chip for faster performance. It’ll also be getting WatchOS 5 in the fall, which includes fitness improvements, customizable Siri shortcuts, and most importantly of all, walkie-talkie mode.


MSI GeForce GTX 1070 TI | $480 | Walmart | Extra $20 off with this rebate
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This MSI GeForce GTX 1070 TI graphics card was selling for over $800 earlier this year thanks to a widespread crypto-mining shortage, but now you can get it for a much more reasonable $480, and even fill out this rebate to get an extra $20 off. That’s actually cheaper than the going rate for the non-TI version right now, despite being about 15% faster.


Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD | $238 | 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 $238, so go ahead and treat yourself.

Anker Powerline+ Lightning Cable 6ft Gray | $10 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER985. Also works on red.
Anker Powerline+ Lightning Cable 3ft Gray | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER985. Also works on red.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

These Anker PowerLine+ Lightning cables (3' | 6') are wrapped in nylon, are rated for 6,000 bends, and come with an 18 month warranty, all of which are improvements over Apple’s own Lightning cable, and that’s not even accounting for how much nicer they feel to use.

Advertisement

Oh yeah, and at $8 or $10 each, they cost about as much as what you’d pay at the Apple Store for an inferior product. Get them for $10 each with promo code ANKER985 in either gray or red.


BeatsX Wireless Headphones | $90 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

While AirPods offer the most seamless headphone experience for iPhone owners, BeatsX are probably a close second, and you can get a pair for an all-time low $90 today on Amazon.

From Gizmodo:

“The Beats X are the third product from Beats (and the fourth from all of Apple) to use the new W1 Bluetooth chipset. This Apple-designed chipset should allow for better battery life. It also makes pairing with an Apple device a total snap—as long as your iPhone runs iOS 10.1 or higher. All I had to do to pair was turn the Beats X and bring them near my phone. A ‘Connect’ button instantly popped up and I was off—music ready to be heard wirelessly.”


Audio Technica Solid Bass Over-Ear Bluetooth Headphones | $165 | Daily Steals | Promo code KJAUDIO
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Audio Technica’s ATH-M50s have long been our readers’ favorite over-ear headphones, but it’s 2018, so you’d be forgiven for only considering wireless cans at this point. Luckily, their ATH-WS99BT are on sale for an all-time low $160 today with promo code KJAUDIO, complete with massive 53mm drivers, and the ability to use them in wired mode if the battery dies.


5K Retina iMac | $1450 | Amazon
Photo: Gizmodo

It’s not the newest model, but if you’ve seen the drool-worthy 5K screen on an iMac at the Apple Store, and wanted one for yourself, today’s Gold Box deal on Amazon is worth a look.

Advertisement

This 2015 model includes a 2TB Fusion drive (which combines a smaller SSD with a larger spinning hard drive), AMD Radeon R9 graphics, a quad-core i5 processor, and of course, that stunning 5K display, all for $1,450. It’s not an apples-to-apples comparison, but the nearest equivalent model from the current lineup would cost you $2,000 at the Apple Store.


Anker Nebula Mars II Portable Projector | $440 | Amazon | Promo code NEWMARS2
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s Nebula Capsule mini projector gets all the hype, but if its standard definition resolution and 100 lumen brightness won’t cut it for your portable cinema needs, the brand new Nebula Mars II just launched with a $100 discount.

Advertisement

The Mars II puts out a 720p picture of up to 150", is three times as bright as the Capsule at 300 lumens, and can run for four hours on a charge, meaning you could watch a double feature outdoors without having to plug it in. It’ll normally sell for $540, but since it just launched, you can save $100 today with promo code NEWMARS2.


Hisense 55" 4K Smart TV | $320 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You’d expect a $320 TV to be stripped of basically all features, but this 55" set from Hisense actually has smart apps, HDR support (though not Dolby Vision, sorry), and yes, even 4K resolution. It’s obviously not the best TV you can buy, but it’s a hell of a bargain if you’re in the market.


Anker PowerDrive 2 | $8 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s PowerDrive 2 can output 12W on both ports simultaneously, and its USB ports even light up so you can find them in the dark. Even if you have a car charger you’re happy with already, I like keeping a spare in my luggage for rental cars.


Anker SoundSync Bluetooth Transmitter/Receiver | $33 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER222
Graphic: Shep McAllister

External Bluetooth transmitters and receivers with 3.5mm jacks have been around for years, but this model from Anker raises the bar with support for optical (SPDIF) audio.

Advertisement

The little box can both receive and transmit Bluetooth signals, and includes SPDIF in and out ports to connect it to your TV or high-end audio equipment. Plus, it can even pair to two pairs of headphones simultaneously when transmitting, which would allow two people to, say, listen to the same TV over headphones to avoid waking up someone in the next room. It even includes an optical audio cable, which doesn’t normally come cheap. Just be sure to use promo code ANKER222 at checkout to get it for $33.


Humble’s newest bundle eschews games in favor of cyber security software. As usual, the contents are split among three different tiers, but the $15 top tier has some really great stuff, including a year of Dashlane Premium password management software and a year of Private Internet Access, our readers’ favorite VPN. Both of those are only valid for new users, but either one on its own would be a stellar discount.

Advertisement

You can also try PIA for a month for just $1 through this bundle, and if you’re ready to commit, get three years of the service for $90 with our exclusive discount. They don’t offer that price to the general public.

BEST HOME DEALS

Roav by Anker SmartCharge Spectrum | $20 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Just when you thought you had car chargers pegged, Anker went out and made the smartest one you’ve ever seen.

Advertisement

Similar to the Nonda Zus, the Roav by Anker SmartCharge Spectrum connects to your phone over Bluetooth while you drive. When you turn the car off and the Bluetooth connection breaks, the Roav app will mark down your parking location on a map, so you can find your way back.

Perhaps more usefully, every time you start your car, the SmartCharge will also log the health of your car battery, so you can track its charge over time from your phone, and get a replacement ready before you get stranded in your own driveway.

Those features alone (along with Quick Charge 3.0 charging) would make this worth $20, but it does have one last trick up its sleeve: A customizable accent light. The LED ring around the USB ports can display 16,000 different colors, and you can choose your favorite from the app to make it perfectly match (or stand out from) your car’s own dashboard lighting. Pretty nifty.

Today’s price is about $4 less than usual, no promo code required.


Pyrex Glass 16 Piece Storage Set | $26 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Our readers’ favorite food storage containers are selling for $26 today on Amazon, within a few cents of the best price ever. They’re glass so they’re less likely to stain or hold odors, and they last forever. But don’t take my word for it - here’s what you like about them:

Easy to clean, great size selection, very sturdy. - thethinwhiteduke

Far and away the best as they will never stain or crack and the lids are replaceable and inexpensive. Tons of different sizes and shapes. I’ve replaced almost all of my old plastic crap except for a few even smaller ones that go in the kids lunch boxes. - Dar

I have what I believe to be the oldest version of this product, purchased ~23 years ago at Costco. The sets (I bought 2) included two sizes of rectangular containers, small bowls, and two sizes of small round, all with blue lids. The have held up perfectly with only the replacement of two lids on the larger bowls. Glass is the perfect storage material but don’t microwave with the lids snapped on tight DAMHIKT. Excellent product and worth many times what I paid. - Bodger


Beautural Portable Fabric Shaver and Lint Remover | $13 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you have any clothes, furniture, or sheets that have a bad case of pilling, this electric fabric shaver is the cure. It features adjustable shaving height and two different speeds, so you can use it on pretty much any piece of fabric that needs it.

Advertisement

$13's not an all-time low, but it’s the best price we’ve seen since April. I bought it myself to revive my all-too-new sofa which my cat decided to turn into a scratching post.


15% off YETI sale | ebay | Use code PLAYFUL15, max $50
Graphic: Erica Offutt

That’s right, a YETI sale. It happens so infrequently it’s hard to believe. But today, you can save 15% off (max $50) select YETI products from ebay when you enter promo code PLAYFUL15 at checkout. The sale includes the insanely popular YETI tumblers, some soft and hard coolers, accessories, and more. I expect some of the coolers to sell out, so if you’re the market, don’t hesitate.


15% off $25+ Orders | eBay | Promo code PLAYFUL15. Full seller list here.
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s not a true sitewide sale like we’ve seen in the past, but eBay’s currently running a 15% promo code for a variety of sellers, most notably Dyson.

Advertisement

For a limited time, Dyson’s eBay outlet is taking an extra 15% off any $25 order (maximum $50 discount) with promo code PLAYFUL15, including vacuums, fans, and even hair dryers. They sell a lot of new stuff on eBay, but the best deals are on the refurbs. Either way, they’re sold directly by Dyson; this isn’t a sketchy third party situation.

My favorite pick here would be the cordless Dyson V7 Animal (refurbished) for $200. If you want a corded upright, the Dyson Cinetic doesn’t require a filter, and is a great option at $179. Just don’t forget the code!


If you primarily use your blender to make smoothies for yourself, you don’t need to make a giant pitcher dirty, you need a Nutribullet. This 900W model blends your drink inside an individual cup (it comes with two, plus lids and handles), meaning you’ll have a much easier job cleaning up afterwards.

Today’s $60 deal is an all-time low by over $10, but it’s only available today.


American Metalcraft Metal Taco Holder | $6 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

This $6 taco holder seems nice, and it solves a real problem, but even if you have no intention of buying it, take a few minutes out of your day and go read the reviews. As our deal researcher, Corey, put it, “reviews on that make me feel like it can cure cancer.”

Advertisement

These normally sell for $8 or more, so don’t miss your chance to take a bite out of this deal.


Queen Comforter Duvet Insert White | $24 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

You can definitely say Amazon’s second best-selling down alternative comforter is well-vetted. It has earned a very impressive 4.5-star rating with over 6,000 reviews. The queen size is the best deal at $24, which matches its all-time low, and the king comforter is at a good price too, just $33. So if you’re in the market for some new bedding, today is a great day to buy.


You never know when you could use a folding table. At just $45 today, this 6-foot commercial Lifetime table is matching the best price we’ve ever seen and the lowest we’ve seen in more than three months. So you can host that backyard barbecue, use it for tailgating, spread out your tools, sit more people for a game night, and then fold it up for storage when you’re not using it. Today’s price might not last long, so grab this while it’s on sale.



Silhouette Portrait 2 Starter Bundle | $140 | Amazon

Similar to a Cricut machine, this Silhouette Portrait 2 precisely cuts fabric, paper, foam, vinyl, and more so you don’t have to pick up the scissors. You choose or create your own patterns on your PC or Mac, then plug the Silhouette into your USB port to make them real, just like a printer. This starter pack comes with 50 pre-made designs, 24 sketch pens, and two cutting mats. Today’s price is a good $60 less than usual, so go ahead, open up that Etsy shop.


10% off Stone & Beam Sale | Amazon

Treat yourself to an oversized leather chair from this Stone & Beam sale on Amazon. They have a couple styles and colors to pick from, and they’re all 10% off with free shipping. This one even reclines.

If leather isn’t your thing, they’re also including some fabric chairs, ottomans, and this linen-colored couch in the sale too.

AmazonBasics Hardshell Spinner 20" Carry-On | $30 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Amazon makes its own luggage now, and you can grab their 20" hardshell spinner for just $30 today, an all-time low. It’s sized to fit in pretty much any overhead bin, and includes a three year limited warranty, which is awfully generous at this price.


Chemical Guys Foam Gun Wash Kit | $58 | Amazon | Clip the 10% coupon
Photo: Amazon

Between the pollen and the bugs, the last few months have probably been tough on your car’s exterior. But you can give it some TLC with this Chemical Guys foam wash kit, which includes a foam gun that you attach to your hose, soaps, wash mitts, and a microfiber drying towel.

The listed $64 price tag is pretty good for this kit, historically, but the 10% coupon on the page brings it all the way down to $58.


Meterk Voltage Tester | $5 | Amazon | Promo code ROGUUZUV
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Let me tell you from experience as a kid; getting shocked by an electrical outlet is not pleasant. So if you’re ever planning on doing any electrical work around your house, you’ll want this affordable voltage tester. Just place the tip near wire or outlet, and it’ll light up if it detects current running through it. Get it for $5 right now with promo code ROGUUZUV.


Kobra Wi-Fi OBD2 Scanner | $11 | Amazon | Promo code PP94JP7K + 20% On-Page Coupon
Kobra Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner | $7 | Amazon | Promo code Z6KXA33D + 20% On-Page Coupon
Kobra Corded OBD2 Scanner | $12 | Amazon | Promo code 7934LGIX + 15% On-Page Coupon

The computer in your car is a treasure trove of information about gas mileage, engine performance, maintenance issues, and more, but without an OBD2 scanner, most can only communicate with you through the primitive language of dashboard warning lights.

Advertisement

Luckily, three such scanners from Kobra are on sale right now, including some wireless ones that sync to your phone and work with third party apps to track and record anything and everything about your car.

The Bluetooth model ($7 with code Z6KXA33D and a 20% on-page coupon) will only work with Android, but the Wi-Fi one ($11 with code PP94JP7K and a 20% on-page coupon) supports iOS as well. There’s also an old-fashioned code checker on sale ($12 with code 7934LGIX and a 15% on-page coupon), if that’s all you’re really interested in.

BEST LIFESTYLE DEALS

If you need anything for the outdoors, Backcountry has it on sale. Right now, they’re taking up to 25% off a ton of gear from Marmot. Outerwear, layering pieces, tents, bags, and more are discounted, so maybe it’s time to think about planning your next camping trip. There are a lot of deals to sort through, so if you have any suggestions, drop them in the comments!

What better way to enjoy the better weather than up to 40% off at the Under Armour Outlet? Pick up workout shirts, shorts, leggings, and more while the brand marks down summer workout gear to get you outside for a fun, a jog, or even just a brisk walk to the coffee shop.


Crest 3D White Strips 20 Treatments + Two 1-Hour Express Treatments | $29 | Amazon | Clip the $5 coupon and use code 10CRESTJUNE
Graphic: Shep McAllister

It’s too late to brighten your smile for Valentine’s Day photos, but it’s never a bad time to whiten your teeth, and Amazon’s running one of the best Crest 3D Whitestrips we’ve ever seen. Clip the $5 coupon on the product page, then use promo code 10CRESTJUNE at checkout to save an extra $10, bringing the 22-piece set down to $29.


Sonicare 2 Plaque Control | $20 | Target | Promo code CLEAN10
Graphic: Erica Offutt

If you want to take better care of your teeth, buying a Philips Sonicare 2 Series toothbrush for $20 would be a great start. This brush is specially designed to remove plaque, brushing away up to 6 times more than a regular manual toothbrush.

It’s just $20 today after entering promo code CLEAN10, which is just about the lowest we’ve seen this product and very affordable for the Sonicare brand. Your teeth and your dentist will thank you.


Six Night Vietnam Vacation with Air | $999+ | Gate 1 Travel | Promo code TZWEV
Photo: Jonathan Kalifat (Unsplash)

The conventional wisdom for traveling to Vietnam is that it’s expensive to get there, but cheap once you arrive. But what if it was cheap to fly there too?

Note: If the link isn’t working, try pausing your ad blocker.

Gate 1 Travel is currently offering six-night tours of the country, including roundtrip and inter-city airfare, starting at just $999 per person with promo code TZWEV. That includes your hotels, breakfasts, and even a tour guide too.

Prices vary by departure airport and date, but promo code TZWEV will take $200 off per person, no matter what options you choose.


20-Pack Oh My Clean Thick Melamine Sponges | $8 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon
Photo: Amazon

You know those “Magic Erasers” that can wipe stains off seemingly any surface? They’re really just melamine sponges with a marketing budget, and you can get 20 off-brand equivalents for just $8 on Amazon (after clipping the $1 coupon), an all-time low. I used these after moving into a new apartment last year, and they made quick work of all of the scuffs I made on the walls.

Advertisement

We’ve seen packs with more sponges for about the same price, but they usually ship from China, whereas these have Prime shipping, and are even eligible for Subscribe & Save. They’re also twice as thick as most of the inexpensive competitors on Amazon, so they should last longer and be easier to use.


Zappos Rewards Sale | Zappos
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having a very rare sale, marking down thousands of shoe, boots, and apparel for the summer season. Heels, boots, sneakers, swimsuits, workout gear, all kinds of styles from brands like Clarks, Adidas, Nike, SOREL, Converse, Dr. Martens, and more. Stock up for the season while you can, because they only run sales this big once or twice per year.

Plus, if you join their free rewards program, you’ll get free two day shipping on all orders through 2018. You can’t beat that.


Privé Revaux Sunglasses | $22 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAPRV
Graphic: Jillian Lucas

Privé Revaux turned the sunglass industry on its head last year with a wide variety of attractive frames for just $30 each, but you can get them for even less today with 25% promo code KINJAPRV.

Advertisement

Everything they sell on Amazon is eligible, so be sure to look beyond the main page. The Men’s and Women’s sections have a lot more styles, and some frames, like the new Madelaine Collection (featuring Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsche) are only available from the New Arrivals dropdown menu. The unisex Commando aviators are Privé’s most popular though, so feel free to start with those.

Privé now sells a couple of blue light-blocking computer glasses as well that you could grab with this sale. They aren’t sunglasses, and they obviously aren’t prescription, but they could be just what you need if suffer from eyestrain at work.

BEST MEDIA DEALS

Target REDcard | Sign up before 6/23 to receive a $25 off $100 Target coupon

If you ever shop at Target, you should have a Target REDCard. It comes in both credit and debit forms, and both save you 5% on almost everything Target sells. But if you want a little added incentive to sign up, if you get the card between now and 6/23, Target will send you a $25 off $100 coupon in the mail. It has a few restrictions, but with everything Target sells, you should have no trouble using it.

You sing along to with Troy and Abed in the morning when you preorder this Community box set on Blu-ray, just $54.


DIRECTV Now | $10 per Month For Three Months | Promo code YESNOW3. Fox not available in all markets
Sling TV World Cup Package | $10 | French and Portuguese Commentary
Graphic: DIRECTV Now

If you want to stream all of the FIFA World Cup games at home (or at your desk) without a real cable subscription, DirecTV Now looks to be your cheapest option at the moment, if they include Fox in your area.

Advertisement

The service’s base package includes Fox Sports 1 and Fox, which together will broadcast every World Cup match, though Fox is only available in certain markets (use this tool to find out if you’re covered). It normally costs $35 per month, but you can get your first three months for just $10 each with promo code YESNOW3. That’ll auto-renew at the regular price after the promotional period, but you can cancel any time, including after your first month, meaning you’d only pay $10 out of pocket for full World Cup access.

If Fox isn’t available in your area, Sling TV has another $10 option with every match that doesn’t rely on Fox, though commentary will be in French and Portuguese. Pretty much every country has more exciting soccer announcers than ours, even if you don’t understand the language, so maybe this is a plus! But if you’re primarily watching on mute at your desk at work, it doesn’t really matter.

BEST GAMING DEALS

Bioshock: The Collection [PC] | $15 | Humble

Whether you’ve played all the Bioshock games, or somehow missed out during the last console generation, the remastered Bioshock Collection is a fantastic deal at an all-time low $15 on PC. That gets you three excellent games, plus all of their DLC, including the essential Minerva’s Den.


DropMix | $45 | Amazon

Update: Now down to $45!

DropMix is an NFC-enabled card game that basically turns you into a remix artist, and it’s down to $50 on Amazon right now, a match for the best price we’ve seen.

Advertisement

Developed by Harmonix, of Rock Band fame, DropMix seems perhaps a little too ambitious—most people don’t have great rhythm, after all—but the game is executed shockingly well. There are multiple game modes, the base set includes 60 song cards from popular artists (though you can purchase expansions, naturally), and it’s beginner-friendly enough for anyone to play.


Wolfenstein II is a very good and depressingly relevant game, and it’s a no-brainer for $20 if you don’t already own it on PS4. This was one of Black Friday’s top sellers at $25, and this is the first time we’ve seen it cheaper.


Super Mario Level Up | $10 | Amazon
Monopoly Gamer | $14 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If Gloomhaven seems like a little much, or if you’re just a Nintendo fan, a couple of Mario-themed board games are on sale for some of the best prices ever right now, so you won’t need to spend too many of your gold coins.

Super Mario Level Up features a 3D game board reminiscent of the ending staircaes of Mario Bros. levels, while Monopoly Gamer is...Monopoly.


Power Wheels Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Erica Offutt

You’ll likely make your kids’ whole year when you buy them one of these discounted power wheels from Amazon. They start at just $60 and go all the way up to $300 for this fancy Batmobile-like car. Just note, this sale will only last through the end of the day or until the products sell out, so don’t wait for these discounts to drive off.


Gloomhaven | $133 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Update: Walmart also has it in stock for $140, if Amazon sells out.

Try not to freak out, but this post is about a $133 board game. That sounds like a lot of money. It is a lot of money. But Gloomhaven is Board Game Geek’s #1 board game ever, and is “astoundingly good” according to Ars Technica. The problem is that it’s hardly ever in stock at major retailers, and eBay resellers typically charge upwards of $200.

Advertisement

While it lasts though, Amazon will let you order the game for $133, with immediate Prime shipping. We posted this several weeks ago at $136 with a 2-5 week backorder, and it was a hit. If you love board games, this should be on your bucket list.


New Nintendo 2DS XL Black & Turquoise | $130 | Walmart
New Nintendo 2DS XL White & Orange | $130 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’re going to buy a console from the 3DS family in the age of the Nintendo Switch, the New 2DS XL is probably the one you should get. It normally costs $150 (half the price of a Switch), but Walmart’s marked that down to a $130 today (both black/turquoise and white/orange), which leaves you with an extra $20 to spend on SNES Virtual Console titles, or Super Smash Bros., because who wants to wait for December?


Preorder Minecraft [Switch] | $24 | Amazon | Prime members only

Minecraft has been available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for awhile, but if you prefer physical copies, or just want to save a few bucks, Prime members can preorder and save $6 today. The physical version releases this Thursday, so this discount will only be available until then.

The Switch version can play online cross-platform, and includes a bunch of Super Mario-themed skins and goodies as well.


Preorder Mario Tennis Aces | $48 | Amazon Prime | Discount shown at checkout.
Screenshot: Amazon

Did you get a chance to play the Mario Tennis Aces online demo earlier this month? I really enjoyed it, and not to brag, but I won two tournaments. If you enjoyed it enough to buy the full game when it comes out this Friday, you can preorder on Amazon right now to save $12 with Prime.

Note: Discount shown at checkout.


Preorder Super Smash Bros. Ultimate GameCube Controller | $30 | Amazon
Preorder Nintendo Switch GameCube Controller Adapter | $20 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It’s not technically a deal, but if you want to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a GameCube controller, as nature intended, you’ll want to preorder the controller and/or the official adapter now. Given Nintendo’s penchant for sold out hardware, you probably don’t want to wait.

Advertisement

Note: If you have the original adapter for the Wii U, or any old GameCube controller, those will work too.


Sony’s PS4 Pro E3 discounts went live a few days ago, and Microsoft has finally followed suit with $50 discounts on a variety of consoles, including the first “official” discount ever on the Xbox One X (though we have seen other savings opportunities on it before). But at least with these deals, you could have the console in your possession as soon as today, if you pick up in store.
