Today’s daily deals include an official Xbox controller for $39.99, a Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC card that’s Nintendo Switch compatible also for $39.99, a Gamestop B2G1 FREE sale on preowned video games and hardware, a slick ambient RGB LED lighting setup for your monitor, a GeForce RTX 4090 at MSRP, 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.
Xbox Core Controller in Electric Volt for $39.99
Today Amazon and Walmart are offering the Xbox Core controller in Electric Volt for only $39.99. That’s almost 40% off the original $65 MSRP. Only Electric Volt has been discounted down to this price, the rest of the colors are more expensive. Aside from the difference in color scheme, this is the same controller as the one that’s included with your console.
Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC Card (Nintendo Switch Compatible) for $39.99
Amazon has the Samsung EVO Plus 512GB Micro SDXC card for only $39.99, making it the lowest price currently for a Micro SDXC card of that size. This card is 100% compatible for the Nintendo Switch console. The Switch only comes with 32GB of built-in storage, which is a paltry amount considering The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes up 14GB of storage all by itself. This card increases your storage by a whopping 16 times!
If you’re looking for a Micro SDXC memory card for something other than the Switch, the Samsung EVO Plus is a great choice as well. Its U3 A2 speed rating is faster than most Micro SDXC cards you’ll find elsewhere, so it’s perfect for smartphone or digital camera storage expansion for recording high resolution photos or uninterrupted 4K video streaming.
Refurb Xbox Series S for $199.99
The Xbox Series S is normally priced at $299.99, which is $200 less than the Xbox Series X. However, Dell is offering a refurbished unit with 3 month warranty for only $199.99, yet another $100 price drop. The Xbox Series S console can still play all of the same games as the Series X. It doesn’t have the power of the Series X, so games are displayed at 1440p resolution instead of 4K in order to maintain the consistent 60fps-120fps graphics you’ll find in most games. If you don’t have a 4K TV or feel like the $200 could be better spent elsewhere (or in this case, $300), then the Xbox Series S might be a smarter purchase.
48″ LG C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $870.28
The 48″ LG C2 OLED TV is about $30 cheaper than what we saw on Black Friday. Although this is an excellent gaming TV, it really shines as a PC gaming monitor. It has HDMI 2.1 ports that support 4K @ 120Hz and VRR when connected to a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 40 series gaming PC as well as sub-1ms response times, ALLM, and native G-SYNC compatibility for zero tearing and ghosting. For PC gamers, the C2 supports 4:4:4 chroma sampling for clear, sharp text. The OLED panel blows away any IPS, VA, or TN monitor in terms of HDR, black levels and color rendition.
GeForce RTX 4090 for $1599.99
Right now Newegg is the only vendor that has a GeForce RTX 4090 GPU for the original base MSRP of $1599.99. The MSI Gaming Trio features 3-slot triple fan cooling. It’s the exact card that I currently use and I have zero regrets. Everybody knows by now that the RTX 4090 is the undisputed king of the hill. It’s significantly more powerful than any other NVIDIA card out there. It’s laughably more powerful than any AMD card, thanks to its support for DLSS 3.0 and it’s marvelous domination of ray tracing tech.
Amazon has the Gaming X Trio for $50 more (also at MSRP). The difference is that the Gaming X Trio is overclocked slightly out of the box. The Gaming Trio is stock.
$50 Nintendo eShop Gift Card for $45
Save 10% off your $50 Nintendo eShop gift card through Newegg. That means 10% off any Nintendo Switch digital game or DLC purchase up to $50. The best thing about these gift card deals is that you don’t have to use it immediately. Wait until the next eShop sale and combine the instant discounts with your 10% savings to get an even better deal.
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.
$50 Off Govee DreamView G1 Pro: Ambient RGB Backlighting For Your PC Gaming Monitor
To get your entire gaming setup glowing, there’s nothing better than the Govee DreamView G1 Pro. This package includes a flexible strip with diffused light that easily attaches to the back of your gaming monitor, along with two 17-inch light bars you place at the monitor’s sides, creating a “bias” lighting to reduce eye strain. Adding to the immersion in your games is an included camera that mounts to the top of your monitor, letting the lights mimic what’s happening on screen. The camera also acts as a hub for all the cables, eliminating clutter.
After a relatively simple install and calibration, the Govee DreamView G1 Pro and its app give you access to other features that really amp up your playing experience. In addition to reacting to the action on screen, the lights can also reflect the sounds. It doesn’t stop there, as there are four game-match modes, where the lights have different behaviors, whether it be a racing, FPS, action, or story-based game.
55″ TCL 4-Series 4K Roku TV for $248
This TCL TV offers solid picture quality without burning a hole in your wallet, and it even has built-in Roku smart TV functionality. It might not look quite as good as a $1500 TV, but you could fund the rest of your home theater or gaming system with the amount you save.
Crucial P5 Plus 2TB PS5 SSD for $119.99
New price drop!
Crucial’s newest M.2 SSD meets all the requirements for your PS5 SSD upgrade. It supports transfer speeds of up to 6,660MB/s which is well above the 5,500MB/s minimum threshold. Yes there are faster SSDs out there, but if your intention is to put this in your PS5, then that extra speed is worthless because you’re bottlenecked by the original PS5 SSD. If you’re worried about opening up your PS5 case, don’t worry it’s very easy. Crucial has an official YouTube PS5 SSD install guide to see you through the process.
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.

Gamestop has kicked off a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale on preowned, refurbished, and clearance video games and hardware. As far as I can tell, most products seem to be eligible. However, the availability of certain items depends on your location. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and at the moment the products below are in stock at my zip code.

Demon Slayer Manga Complete Box Set
If you love the Demon Slayer anime series but don’t want to wait months for another new season, here’s your chance to score the entire manga collection for nearly 50% off. The Demon Slayer manga is officially over (last issue published back in 2020) and comprises a total of 23 volumes. The anime misses quite a few details and events from the manga, so you’ll get even more out of re-reading the volumes you might have already watched.
Apple Watch Series 8 for $323
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.

Alienware m15 R7 15″ Intel Core i9-12900H RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop for $1499.99
As part of its Spring Sale Event, Dell is offering the Alienware m15 R7 15″ Intel Core i9-12900H gaming laptop with RTX 3070 Ti video card for only $1499.99 after $750 in instant savings. This is the most powerful Alienware gaming laptop you’ll currently find for under $1500. 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.
Alienware x15 RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop for $1599.99
Dell has also pushed out a couple of rare deals on the Alienware x15 and Alienware x17 gaming laptops. The Alienware X-series gaming laptops are newer, thinner, and lighter redesigns of the traditional M-series laptops. These are the thinnest Alienware laptops ever and they compete in build quality, dimensions, and performance to other high-end ultra-thin laptops like the Razer Blade.
One important thing to note is that unlike the first gen X-series gaming laptops, the x15 and x17 R2 models have GPUs that boast the same TGP rating as their M-series counterparts. For example, the x15 has the same RTX 3070 TI GPU with 140W TGP that you’d find in an m15. Theoretically, that means you shouldn’t see any performance difference between an equivalently equipped x15 and m15. That’s super impressive considering the x15’s 0.62″ and the x17’s .83″ thickness. The X-series laptops are justifiably more expensive than their M-series counterparts, but this deal negates that one disadvantage.
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.
$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.
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.
The Best Deals of the Week
These deals are definitely worth your attention.
