Today’s daily deals for Saturday, July 29 include a pair of Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells, the Bose QuietComfort 45 noise-canceling wireless headphones, a 4-pack of Apple AirTags, 1TB Nintendo Switch compatible memory card, Alienware gaming PCs and laptops, and more.
D&D Monster Manual for $16.49
Every adventurer needs to know what’s out there. If you don’t want to get caught unawares by a Beholder, you should grab a monster manual. With info on more than 150 monsters from the Dungeons & Dragons universe it’s great for dungeon masters and players alike.
JBL Soundbar for $199
A really easy, straightforward way to improve your sound setup is to get a soundbar. I use a Vizio 5.1 soundbar, myself, but even without the subwoofer, you still get a lot more depth and breadth, letting you get even more enjoyment out of your music, games, movies, tv, and more.
iRobot Roomba s9+ for $599
If you find yourself overwhelmed with housework, getting a robot vacuum is a fantastic way to give yourself a bit of a break. I use a Shark myself (lovingly dubbed ‘Sharky’), and it’s been a great way to make sure the floor is clean enough to walk around barefoot without having to vacuum every day… dang cats.
WD_BLACK 4TB NVMe for $269.99
If you want blazing fast storage for a massive discount, you can grab a ridiculous 4TB NVMe drive from WD for a whopping 61% off, netting it for just $269, and if you want a cheaper option, you can get the Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe drive for just $49.99. Both of these beasts are at their lowest prices ever, so get on it if you wanna join the ‘get rid of load screens’ squad.
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells (Pair) for $349.99
If you’ve decided to bulk up this year, then here’s a deal that will help you reach your goal. Amazon has the Bowflex SelectTech 552 adjustable dumbbells for $349.99. That’s a 36% price drop compared to the original $529 MSRP and very close to the lowest price we’ve seen this year. Each Bowflex SelectTech 552 dumbbell is adjustable from 5 pounds all the way to 52.5 pounds with just a turn of a dial. It’s definitely more efficient than constantly swapping discs. In terms of space saving prowess, the Bowflex dumbbells are unmatched. All the plates are neatly contained and doesn’t take up much space. You’re basically housing two larger profile dumbbells instead of an entire rack of weights.
3 Free Months of Audible Premium Plus
Amazon Prime Day might be over, but this deal runs through July 31. Amazon is offering one of the best subscription deals we’re going to see for the entire month of July. Right now Amazon Prime members can get 3 free months of Audible Premium Plus membership. Only new subscribers are eligible. You’ll need to log into your Amazon Prime account to see this deal. If you’re not sure whether or not you’re eligible, simply click on the link; if you see the promo then you’re eligible and if you don’t then you’re not.
Insignia F20 32″ 720p TV for $79.99
Looking for a dirt cheap TV? You can’t get any cheaper than this. Amazon has the Insignia F20 32″ TV for a mere $79.99 or $24″ for $629.99. This is a great TV to fit in a small nook or maybe an RV if you can run it off a generator. It has smart Fire TV functionality as well.
4-Pack Apple AirTags for $84.99
Amazon is currently offering a four pack of Apple AirTags keyfinders for only $84.99. You’re essentially paying only $21.25 per keyfinder. That’s 15% off MSRP and better than Amazon Prime Day. The Apple Airtag is a small coin shaped device that you can put in your wallet or attach to your phones, keys, remote, or anything small enough to be easily misplaced. It works as a little WiFi keyfinder that helps you locate your lost objects by pinging the exact location to your iPhone. The AirTag uses Bluetooth 5.0 to pinpoint a general location of your lost item. However, if your iPhone model has a U1 chip with Ultra Wideband, there is a “Precision Finding” mode that can give you a numerical distance as well as a directional pointer when your lost item is in range. It’s a pretty awesome piece of tech that works a lot better than “it’s here somewhere”.
Lexar Play 1TB U3 A2 Micro SDXC Card for $69.99
Amazon is offering a Lexar Play 1TB U3 A2 Micro SDXC card for only $69.95. Its a little bit more than what we saw during Prime Day, but it’s still the best price currently for a 1TB card from a reputable manufacturer. At this price, it’s what some people would normally pay for a card half that size! The Lexar Play is compatible with virtually any device that accepts the Micro SDXC card standard. That includes the Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, ASUS ROG Ally, any recently released smartphone that supports expandable memory, GoPros, cameras and much more.
Bluetti 537Wh Solar Generator Power Station for $258
Walmart has this Bluetti power center with 537Wh capacity LFP cells and a 700W max power inverter for only $258. At only 48 cents per watt, that’s a solid deal for a power center equipped with LiFePO4 batteries, which are safer and have a longer lifespan than traditional lithium-ion NMC batteries. LFP batteries have less energy density so they’re usually heavier, but fortunately this power station weighs in at less than 17 pounds. It can charge via 200W AC or 200W PV (solar panels) or both.

While Amazon has the PS5 bundle for $599.99, alongside the DualSense controller for $79.99, we’re yet to see the incredibly popular faceplates there.

Best Switch SD Card Deals
There’s only one expansion slot in the Switch console so you want to make sure you get the biggest card you can afford. Below, we’ve found some of the best SD card deals right now so you can maximize your Switch’s storage space without breaking the bank.
Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC Card for $35.71
Amazon has the Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC card for only $35.71, making it one of the lowest prices currently for a Micro SDXC card of that size. It boasts a U3 A2 speed rating, which is faster than most Micro SDXC cards, including the official Nintendo Switch ones. It doesn’t make any difference for the Nintendo Switch itself, since it will throttle any Micro SDXC card down to U1 speeds. However, it will be useful if you ever want to swap it down the road to your smartphone, GoPro, camera, or any device that supports faster speeds.
Budget to Best: Micro SDXC Card Deals
If you’re not married to a particular brand, then there are plenty of lesser-known but still legitimate companies that offer some outstanding deals on memory cards. For example, TeamGroup is actually a well-known company, but people recognize them more for their T-Force branded lineup of RAM and SSDs.
Steam Deck Owners Can Use These Cards Too!
The Switch isn’t the only gaming system that accepts these cards. If you’re a Steam Deck or ROG Ally owner, you can also use this card, especially if you picked up the 64GB Deck storage option.

The Best Lenovo Black Friday in July Gaming Deals
Lenovo Legion Pro 5 Gen 8 16″ RTX 4070 Laptop for $1364.99
Use stackable codes “EXTRA5” and “BUYMORELENOVO” to get this price. The RTX 4070 mobile GPU performs roughly 20%-30% faster than the RTX 3070 that is replaces. That means its also a little bit faster than the RTX 3070 Ti. You’ll need this kind of power to run games on the laptop’s QHD+ display with settings turned up. RTX 40 series cards also support DLSS 3.0, which is essentially DLSS 2.0 plus frame generation. For games that support it (like Hogwarts Legacy) this is a big FPS increase over even DLSS 2.0.
Lenovo Legion Pro 5 Gen 8 16″ RTX 4060 Laptop from $1127.49
Use stackable codes “EXTRA5” and “BUYMORELENOVO” to get this price. Performance-wise, the RTX 4060 mobile GPU sits right in between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti and supports DLSS 3.0.
Lenovo Slim 5 Gen 8 16″ RTX 4060 Laptop for $1098.99
Use stackable codes “EXTRA5” and “BUYMORELENOVO” to get this price. If you’re looking for a Lenovo ultraportable laptop that has gaming chops, then this Slim model might up right up your alley. Despite it’s impressive 16″ form factor, it measures only 0.78″ thin and weighs in at under 5.07 pounds. It’s definitely lighter than the Legion laptops and it sips less power on the CPU front. It makes for a solid gaming PC thanks to the new RTX 4060 GPU.
Lenovo LOQ 16″ RTX 4060 Gaming Laptop for $984.99
Use stackable codes “EXTRA5” and “BUYMORELENOVO” to get this price. Lenovo released a budget line of gaming laptops this year dubbed the “LOQ”. This particular LOQ laptop is priced a lot less compared to a Legion laptop with similar specs. Fortunately, this config doesn’t skimp on the premium features. Not only do you get the latest RTX 4060 GPU, which is superior to the previous generation’s RTX 4070, it’s also paired with AMD’s current-gen AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS CPU. The rest of the specs are impressive as well: a 16″ 2560×1600 QHD+ display, 16GB of DDR5-5600MHz RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 8 RTX 4080 PC for $2199.99
The RTX 4080 is the second most powerful card on the market and a considerable step up in performance over the 4070 Ti. This (or the 4090) is the card you want for 4K gaming without any restrictions. On the AMD front, only the Radeon RX 7900 XTX can keep up (and that’s if you ignore DLSS and ray tracing). It’s much more powerful than previous generation cards, performing about 50% faster than an RTX 3080 Ti. It’s actually only 20%-30% slower than the RTX 4090 (and you’ll really only feel the difference in 4k) while costing hundreds of dollars less. Check out our RTX 4080 review.
Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 8 RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $1159.99
If you’re looking for a rig that excels at 1080p gaming and doesn’t come with a high price tag, Lenovo has got you covered here as well. This Lenovo Legion 5 gaming PC features an AMD Ryzen 7 7000 series CPU and a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU for under $1200. The RTX 3060 Ti handles all manner of 1080p gaming without breaking a sweat, and even has the chops to handle some 1440p gaming.
Dell (Alienware) is running its annual Black Friday in July Sale with plenty of great deals on Alienware and Dell gaming laptops and desktops, including new 2023 models equipped with the newest AMD and Intel CPUs and RTX 40 series GPUs. Those aren’t the only things on sale, though. We’ve found some great discounts on monitors, gaming consoles, electronics, and accessories as well. Check them out here.
Alienware Aurora RTX 3070 Gaming PC From $1149.99
As part of the Dell Black Friday in July Sale, you can get either the Alienware Aurora R13 Intel RTX 3070 gaming PC for only $1149.99. It features a liquid cooled Intel Core i7-12700F CPU, 16GB of DDR5-4400MHz RAM, 1TB SSD, and powered by a 1000W 80PLUS Platinum power supply.
The RTX 3070 might be a generation old but it’s still no slouch. It’s faster than RTX 2080 Ti. Compared to the new RTX 40 series GPUs, the 3070 is neck and neck with the RTX 4060 Ti. This is a great card for running games at at up to 1440p. It’s also great for running games at 1080p but with higher refresh rates that so many gaming monitors support these days, like 144Hz or even 240Hz.
Alienware m17 R5 17″ AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX RTX 3070 Ti Laptop for $1250
As part of its Black Friday in July event, Dell is offering the Alienware m17 R5 17″ AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX gaming laptop with RTX 3070 Ti video card for only $1249.99 after a massive $1000 in instant savings. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti provides plenty of muscle on the GPU front. Among the RTX 30 series mobile cards, it’s only slightly less powerful than the RTX 3080. Compared to desktop variants, it’s roughly comparable to the RTX 3060. It’s capable of running any game out there on the display’s native 1080p resolution and at over 60fps, which is nice because the display is capable of refresh rates of up to 480Hz and, fortunately, is G-SYNC certified.
Alienware Aurora R13 RTX 3080 PC for $1549.99
Do you want a rig that can handle 4K gaming but don’t want to spend over $2K on a gaming PC? Then this might be a good pick for you. As part of its Dell Black Friday in July Sale, Dell is offering an Alienware Aurora R13 RTX 3080 gaming PC for only $1549.99 after an $1150 instant discount. The RTX 3080 is a great pick for up to 4K gaming without spending an egregious sum of money. I myself currently run an RTX 3080 equipped system paired with a 4K display and I can run Elden Ring, Genshin Impact, and Hogwarts Legacy just fine at a steady 60fps. The liquid cooled Intel Core i9-1200F is an excellent gaming and workstation processor that pairs very well with the RTX 3080 and won’t bottleneck your gaming.
Alienware m17 R5 15″ AMD Ryzen 9 RTX 3080 Ti Laptop for $1799.99
Right now Dell has an Alienware m17 R5 15″ gaming laptop with RTX 3080 Ti GPU for only $1799.99. That’s a great price for a GPU that’s a little more powerful than the RTX 4070 GPU and sells for a lot less. In fact, to find a laptop GPU that’s significantly more powerful, you’d have to pay about $800 more for an RTX 4080 laptop. It will easily run any game on the laptop’s native 1080p display. The other specs are solid as well, like the AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and the massive 32GB of RAM.
Alienware Aurora R15 RTX 4080 Gaming PC for $2399.99
This Alienware Aurora R15 desktop features an AMD Ryzen 7 7700 GPU with 240mm AIO liquid cooling, GeForce RTX 4080 GPU, 16GB of DDR5-4800MHz RAM, and dual storage (1TB SSD and 1TB HDD). The RTX 4080 is the second most powerful card on the market. It’s much more powerful than previous generation cards, performing about 50% faster than an RTX 3080 Ti. This card also excels at 4K gaming. If you don’t want to spend hundreds more for the 4090, then I’d recommend you get this GPU if you want to play games at 4K and 120fps with pretty much every setting turned to the max.
