I bring you the best deals I’ve found today on video games, hardware, electronics, and a bunch of random stuff too. Check them out here or like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter to get the latest deals.
There’s no typo here. You can actually score an RTX 2080 equipped Alienware desktop for $1399 following the instructions below. The other hardware is still solid – stock specs include an Intel Core i5-8400 6-core processor, 8GB of memory, and 1TB HDD. The only recommendation I’d make is to add in your own SSD. SSDs are much cheaper than they used to be and it doesn’t void your warranty.
If you’ve got deep pockets, you can upgrade to the RTX 2080 Ti instead. This is the only way you’ll be able to get a brand new, fully warrantied pre-built RTX 2080 Ti configuration for under $2K.
This is a 2018 update to the very popular 55″ TCL 55S405 4K Smart HDTV for $379.99. There’s no 55″ model yet but the 50″ model is priced competitively at $320. The TCL S400 series TVs are well rated because they offer solid image quality and the best smart experience (via Roku) at a dirt cheap price.
This sale actually encompasses several categories, but the one that we’re seriously interested in is video games. Every item in this list should be eligible. The 20% off discount will be shown at the last step right before checkout so make sure it’s applied before you place the order.
Some solid prices:
One of the most anticipated games for the PS4 is hitting store shelves on January 29. Preorder it from Amazon and you’ll get a $10 Amazon credit that you’ll be able to use on anything at Amazon.com (it doesn’t have to be gaming related). It’s very possible that Amazon will mark this game “out of stock” or remove the preorder perk the last few days before release so if you plan on getting this game, you might as well preorder it now. You won’t be charged until the game ships, you can cancel your preorder with no penalty, and you’ll automatically be adjusted for any price drops up to release.
Preorder it and also get the Dawn Till Dusk Keyblade DLC.
This is one of the best non-gaming laptop deals you’ll find at the moment. The AMD Ryzen 5 2500U quad-core is comparable to an 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor. Non-intensive gaming is still possible with this laptop because the Radeon Vega 8 onboard GPU blows most Intel onboard graphics out of the water.
The Acer Predator X34 is one of the best gaming monitors you can get right now. This gaming beast boasts a 34″ 3440×1440 1900R curved IPS panel display with super wide viewing angles and 99% sRGB coverage, 4ms response time (the best you can get for an IPS monitor), NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, and up to 120Hz refresh rate.
A discount on a UCS set is super rare (and this one is a hefty 15% off). This is part of the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series, which has been known to jack up in price after LEGO decides to discontinue the models. For example, the Star Destroyer goes for $2000+, the X-Wing for $600+, or the TIE Interceptor for $900+.
Not only is this collector’s edition discounted by 40% off, there’s an additional 5% off coupon you can clip the drops the price even more. This is a ridiculously good deal considering the standard edition still sells for $50. Valkyria Chronicles 4 was released just September of last year, and we loved it. This edition includes a Hafen Tank statue, 100-page artwork, and DLC.
The 500E model sells for $150 everywhere else, but Amazon has it for the lowest price I’ve seen. This is the highest end Plantronics RIG 500 series model with both 3.5mm and Dolby 7.1 digital output, 40mm drivers with bass tubes, over-ear noise isolating vented ear cups, adjustable headband, and detachable boom mic.
This is the lowest price I’ve seen for a pre-built gaming desktop equipped with a GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. The GTX 1070 Ti is right behind the GTX 1080 in performance but matches it in some games. The AMD Ryzen 2600 6-core processor also makes it a great workstation. To top it off, you’re getting a healthy amount of RAM and a massive 500GB solid state drive. A 1 year warranty is already included but you can extend it to 3 years for $58.
For a limited time take an extra $300 off the regular price. The RTX 2070 is slightly faster than the GeForce GTX 1080, and since it’s an RTX series it has support for newer technology like Ray Tracing and DLSS. You’re also getting one of the fastest processors for gaming, an overkill amount of memory, and both an SSD for speed and traditional hard drive for storage. Extend the warranty to 3 years for only $58.
This is currently the least expensive GTX 1060-equipped laptop I could find, especially one equipped with a 6-core Intel Core i7 processor. It also features a 15″ 1080p IPS panel display, 8GB of memory, a 1TB hard drive with 16GB of Optane memory, and a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB video card that should run any game on the 1080p display. The laptop weighs in at only 4.8lbs, which is respectable for a 15″ gaming rig, and boasts up to 10 hours of battery life.
You can now get the Playstation Classic for cheaper than the NES Classic. The system includes 20 pre-loaded games including Final Fantasy VII, Revelations: Persona, Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto, and much more. Some people may have turned their noses up to the original $100 price tag, but at 45% off who’s complaining. This is sold through antonline via Walmart. Antline is a legit vendor and is more known on ebay with 285,000 reviews.
This deal is even less expensive per month than buying the 12-month membership for $59.99. In addition to being able to play multiplayer games like Fortnite, PUBG, Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 4, Overwatch, and more, Xbox Live Gold gives you free games every month and weekly discounts on video games at the Xbox store. Once you buy the 3 month membership, the additional 3 months should automatically be added to your account.
This TV is $50 cheaper than on Black Friday. TCL really broke ground last year as the new king of value TVs. They offer high quality panels that are well rated by professional critics at the lowest prices around. This particular TV is a more recent 2018 model and has superb image quality. It’s also both HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR compatible. Walmart offers free shipping and the option to extend to a 3-year warranty for only $79.
Then new 2018 model Vizio D-series TVs are priced lower than what we saw on Black Friday. At its price point, the Vizio D-series TVs are one of the best rated panels around. Walmart offers free 2-day shipping on the 50″ and 55″ models, and extending the warranty to 3 years only costs an extra 10%.
Education isn’t cheap – and it’s usually very expensive – so don’t pass on this chance to get some accredited instruction for a really low price. Udemy courses run from $100-$200, but there’s always a hidden sale that drops the price substantially, usually $10-$15. $9.99 is the lowest price I ever see. Udemy is one of the largest online course sites in the world, and there are tons of courses on relevant topics like computer programming, game design and development, tutorials on Photoshop, Maya, Premiere, and more.
