In today’s daily deals, you can still preorder The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch OLED and matching case before the game comes out next month. Plus, there’s a big LEGO sale going on at Best Buy, which includes a handful of sets from the worlds of both Star Wars and Super Mario. These deals and more below.
Preorder the Nintendo Switch OLED The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Edition Right Now
It’s finally up for preorder. Amazon and Best Buy have opened up preorders for the Nintendo Switch OLED Tears of the Kingdom Edition for $359.99. There’s a queue right now to get it, but orders are going through. We don’t know how long this will last, but it’s certainly very popular. This Edition includes custom themed Joy-Cons, dock, and Switch case. Note that the actual game isn’t included.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch Carrying Case
If you’re getting the special edition The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch OLED, you’ll want the matching carrying case to go with it. This case costs $24.99, and it launches on May 12, 2023, the same day as Tears of the Kingdom itself. This case has the Hylian Crest as well as the strange, round icons we still don’t have an explanation for just yet. And even if you’re not getting the special edition Switch, this case will let you show off some of your Zelda love at a much lower price.
WD easystore 1TB External USB 3.0 Portable SSD
We could all use some extra storage, especially if it’s a good deal. And today, you can save $60 on the WD easystore 1TB external USB portable SSD. This is a great option for physical backup of your important documents and photos, and the 3.0 USB connection helps you move large folders at a high speed. It also has plug-and-play functionality for a fast setup. It also comes with a three-year warranty, so you can have reliable storage for years to come.
Get Just Dance 2023 for $19.99
Just Dance is still coming out yearly, and the 2023 edition is on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. All these years later, Just Dance is still a solid party game, especially at today’s sale price of $19.99. And for the 2023 game, Ubisoft is adding new songs and modes year round, which will give you a reason to keep breaking this game out. It’s worth noting, though, these physical editions only come with a case and download code — not an actual physical copy of the game.
LEGO Mario and Star Wars Sale
There’s a big LEGO sale going on at Best Buy today, and it includes a ton of sets in the Star Wars and Super Mario line. The Super Mario line is very kid-friendly, as it’s big, blocky, and easy to assemble and play with. You can grab the Luigi Starter Course on sale, which comes with LEGO figures of Luigi and Yoshi, along with classic Mario scenes like the flagpole. Then, you can expand it with the Goomba Shoe, Ice Mario Suit, Super Mario Bee powerup, and more. In the Star Wars realm, the fantastic Red Five Luke Skywalker helmet has a nice $14 discount. Plus, Boba Fett’s throne room and the Dark Trooper Attack sets are also on sale.

Preorder The Super Mario Bros. Movie
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is all the rage right now, as it’s on track to have one of the biggest opening weekends, well, ever. This animated production from Illumination and Nintendo successfully brings Mario, Luigi, Peach, and the rest of the gang to the big screen, and it’s absolutely packed with Nintendo references and nods. There are so many little easter eggs, you’ll probably want to pause the movie and examine it frame by frame. To do that, you’ll want to own the Super Mario Bros. Movie 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and Digital combo pack, which is up for preorder now.
Get Spirited Away on Blu-ray for 56% Off

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Is $34.98
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is an awesome return to the world of 2019’s Fire Emblem Three Houses. You get to revisit all three heads of the Garreg Mach houses: Dimitri, Claude, and Edelgard, but all with an entirely new spin on combat. Instead of traditional turn-based tactics gameplay, Three Hopes is a spin on the Dynasty Warriors series, with frantic combat where you’ll take out dozens of enemies at a time. The story is also a fun alternate take on Three Houses’ war, taking things in a totally new direction.
Get Like a Dragon: Ishin! For $20 Off
The Like a Dragon series (formerly known as the Yakuza series in the west) is still pumping out new games. Following up on hits like the Judgment spinoff series and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the series is taking a quick side trip in the form of Like a Dragon: Ishin! This game takes place decades before the rest of the series, and it shifts its focus from the yakuza to the samurai. It’s got the same dramatics and side stories you expect from the franchise, but it’s all dropped into an entirely new setting. This adventure is $39.99 today, which is the lowest price we’ve seen since its February launch.
Preorder The Last of Us: The Complete First Season for 20% Off

2nd Gen Apple AirPods Pro for $199.99
The 2nd gen Apple AirPods Pro truly wireless noise cancelling earbuds is back down to its lowest price again. Amazon currently has it for $199.99, a price drop of $50. The Apple AirPods Pro is one of the best sounding “truly wireless” earbuds you’ll find, especially at this price point. “Truly wireless” earbuds have no wires whatsoever, even to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, the AirPods Pro is the only AirPods earbuds with active noise cancelling technology.
Apple Watch Series 8 for $329
Amazon is offering the latest generation Apple Watch Series 8 (41mm, GPS) for only $329, a $70 price drop from its $399 MSRP. The Apple Series 8 carries over the best features of the Series 7 like the Always-On Retina OLED display, the dual-core CPU (now called the “S8” processor, even though functionally it’s the same as the S7 processor on the Series 7), the rugged IP6X dust resistant and swimproof (to 50mm) casing, and the wealth of health features like ECG, blood oxygen, and heart rate meters. Two features new to the Series 8 are a built-in temperature sensor (primarily geared towards women’s health) as well as the ability to detect when you’ve been subjected to a serious car crash.
2023 Apple Mac Mini M2 for $499
This is the lowest price we’ve seen so far for the latest Mac Mini equipped with the M2 processor. This is the same M2 processor you’ll find in the newest MacBook and MacBook Pros. If you don’t need the built-in display and keyboard of a portable laptop, then the Mac Mini might be the better choice for you. It has more connectivity options and, of course, it’s hundreds of dollars cheaper for the same performance specs.
Alienware m15 RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop $1199.99
This Alienware laptop features a 15″ 1080p display, your choice of Intel Core i7-12700H or AMD Ryzen 7 6800H CPU, GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, 16GB of DDR5-4800MHz RAM, and a 512GB SSD. Both the Intel Core i7-12700H and AMD Ryzen 7 6800H are excellent gaming and workstation CPUs. If brand loyalty didn’t matter, I’d personally go with the Intel model because the i7-12700H does perform better in games than the Ryzen 7 6800H. The RTX 3060 in this laptop is one of the faster variants out there thanks to its max TGP rating of 130W with dynamic boost. It’s more powerful than the previous generation’s RTX 2070 and will handle just about any game you can throw at it on the 1080p display. RTX 30 series GPUs also support DLSS 2.0 and ray tracing.
Hasbro Captain America Stealth Shield for $49.99
This Captain America Stealth Shield replica normally retails for $120.99, but today it’s nearly 60% off at Best Buy.

This 1:1 scale replica measures 24″ in diameter and features adjustable straps.
65″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1499.99
Woot is offering a brand new LG Evo C2 65″ 4K OLED TV with full manufacturer’s warranty for $1499.99. That’s cheaper than Amazon’s best price during Black Friday. The LG C2 is one of the best TVs on the market, especially for current gen console gaming. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K @ 120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There’s also variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. The LG C2 also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated tone mapping specific to your TV model. Woot is owned by Amazon.
Nintendo Switch OLED for $299.99
Factory Reconditioned with 1 Year Nintendo Warranty
Starting today, Woot is offering the Nintendo Switch OLED gaming console for $299.99, a welcome $50 price drop compared to its original $350 MSRP. This is a factory reconditioned unit with 1-year Nintendo warranty. That essentially means the refurbishing was done by Nintendo directly. Because the warranty is the same, there’s really no difference between this and a brand new unit other than the fact that you save $50. Woot! is a legit company that’s been around for years. It is currently owned and operated by Amazon, and that’s why you get free shipping if you sign in with your Amazon Prime account.
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ 2560×1600 QHD+ RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop for $1299.99
Walmart is offering an outstanding deal on the new Lenovo Legion 5 Pro laptop equipped with a Ryzen 7 6800H CPU and RTX 3070 Ti GPU. The AMD Ryzen 7 6800H is an excellent gaming and workstation chip. It’s a small improvement over the previous generation 5000 series processors and certainly won’t bottleneck your GPU. The RTX 3070 Ti is a powerful GPU that should be able to run pretty much any game on the native 2560×1600 resolution.
$50 Off PS5 God of War Bundle
Amazon is offering a PS5 Disc Edition console bundled with the God of War: Ragnarok game for only $509.99. That’s $50 off the $559.99 MSRP and only $10 more than buying the console without any game! This is the first ever discount we’ve ever seen for the PS5 console from Amazon. We’re not sure how long this deal will last, but we do know that this is a manufacturer’s discount and not a permanent price drop. If you’ve been waiting for a price drop before jumping on the bandwagon, this will be the best deal you’ll find for a while.
HP ENVY RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1229.99
Here’s a pretty nice deal on an excellent gaming PC for around $1200. This HP ENVY PC features a 12th gen Intel Core i9-12900 16-core Alder Lake CPU, GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD. The Intel Core i9-12900 is one of the best CPUs available… you’d need to get an Intel Raptor Lake or AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPU to get anything as good or better. The RTX 3070 is a very solid video card for this price level; it will easily get you 60fps+ at up to 1440p gaming.
Mario Day Deal: Buy a Nintendo Switch Console with Mario Red Controllers, Get Free Game of Your Choice
Mario Day is officially here! All the Switch video games might have gone on sale earlier, but the Switch console bundle exclusive to Mario Day just went live. Not only do you get the Nintendo Switch console with the rare Mario Red Joy-Con controllers, you also get to choose one game among these three: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, or Super Mario Bros U Deluxe. This is a more tempting deal than what we saw on Black Friday, which was a Switch with Neon controllers and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the same price.
