Today future Switch gamers rejoice! Woot is offering 10% off the Nintendo Switch console and 7% off the Nintendo Switch OLED console. Since these two gaming systems are almost never discounted, now is the time to pick one up if you’ve been waiting for a deal. In other news, save $80 off a sweet Arcade1Up Marvel countercade, or pick up a 2022 ASUS gaming laptop with RTX 3060 GPU and Intel Alder Lake CPU for cheaper than Amazon Prime Day.
Nintendo Switch for $269.99
Woot, which is owned by Amazon, is offering 10% off a brand new Nintendo Switch gaming console with neon Joy-Cons. We almost never see a straight up price drop on a Nintendo Switch console (not even on Amazon Prime Day); if there’s ever a deal, it’s usually in the form of a bundle or gift card. If you’ve been waiting for any kind of deal on the Switch, you won’t get anything better than this. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get free shipping on your order. This deal expires today.
Nintendo Switch OLED for $324.99
The Nintendo Switch OLED features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen display, an upgrade to the terrible OG kickstand, an ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons. If you have the budget to spring for this one, we definitely think it’s worth the upgrade over the vanilla Switch. Amazon Prime members get free shipping on their order.
Arcade1Up Marvel Super Heroes 2 Countercade
There’s a nice 35% price drop on this bite-sized countercade from Arcade1Up. This is a great alternative for anyone who doesn’t have space (or funds) for a massive arcade cabinet. Despite its diminutive size, it’s actually very playable with an 8″ hi-res display, speaker, and full sized joystick and control buttons for two players. Four games in total are included: Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs Street Fighter, The Punisher, and Marvel vs Capcom.

ASUS TUF Dash 15″ Intel Core i7-12650H RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
This was one of the most popular gaming laptop deals during Amazon Prime Day, and it’s back for a slightly cheaper price! That’s right, this particular ASUS TUF Dash 15″ gaming laptop was down to $1100 on Black Friday, but it’s only $1069.99 today. It features an RTX 3060 GPU with 105W max TGP and the newest generation Intel Core i7-12650H Alder Lake processor. The Complementing these specs are 16GB of DDR5 RAM and a 512GB SSD.
Apple Watch Series 7 for $279.99
There’s no better time for you to score what is inarguably the best smartwatch on the market. The Apple Watch Series 7 41mm GPS model (in Clover only) has dropped back down to $279, matching Amazon Prime Day’s best price. The Apple Watch Series 7’s most obvious improvement from its predecessors is its larger screen. The Apple Watch Series 7 has a 20% larger screen and can now fit an entire touch-sensitive keyboard on the watch face itself. The display on the Apple Watch Series 7 is always-on, and is 20% brighter than the previous Apple Watch. In spite of increased brightness, the Series 7 boasts the same 18 hours of battery life, as well as 33% faster charging than the Series 6. The Series 7 also follows Apple’s trend of emphasizing health-related features unique to the Apple watch compared to other smartwatches. There’s a blood oxygen and ECG app standard with the Apple Watch Series 7, as well as high and low heart rate and irregular heart rhythm notifications.
Newest Apple TV 4K for $119.99
The Apple TV 4K happened to be one of Amazon Prime Day’s hottest sellers. Today the price has dropped down to the same as what we saw on Prime Day. The newest Apple TV features two major upgrades. It boasts an A12 Bionic processor that boosts graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. It also includes a new Apple TV remote. The overall build quality is better than before, but the biggest enhancements are a 5-way clickpad, mute button, and dedicated power button that works for your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.
Apple iPad 10.2″ 64GB for $299.99
Apple’s latest 10.2″ iPad is a great option for school, work, or simply relaxing with your favorite movie, book, or streaming service. The 64GB model has dropped to $299, and you won’t find a less expensive current generation Apple iPad out there. The Apple A13 Bionic chip for fast CPU and GPU performance to tackle just about anything, and the large 10.2-inch Retina display ensures everything is bright and crisp during use. iPad also features both a front-facing camera for voice chat, and rear camera for taking photos and videos.
New Apple AirPods Pro for $179.99
New MagSafe Model
Apple AirPods Pro Noise Canceling earbuds
The current generation 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 the earbuds aren’t hardwired to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, the AirPods Pro is the only AirPods with active noise canceling technology. That, combined with the inherent nature of in-ear earbuds, means that the AirPods Pro will provide better noise isolation than over-ear headphones like the Bose QuietComfort or the Sony WH1000XM5. If you’re thinking of getting a pair of new AirPods, we highly recommend jumping on this particular model.
Google Pixel 6a with $50 Amazon Gift Card for $449
Available in all 3 colors
Google Pixel 6a with Bonus $50 Amazon Gift card
The newly released Google Pixel 6a is the latest in the Pixel smartphone lineup. Compared to the flagship phones from Apple or Samsung, which cost hundreds of dollars more, the price point is refreshingly reasonable. The Pixel 6a features a 6.1″ OLED 2400×1080 display, Google Tensor CPU (the same one found on the more expensive Google 6), 6GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in storage, one of the best camera smartphones in its price range, and 5G compatibility.
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU Starting at $749.99
The GeForce RTX 3080 GPU really doesn’t need any introduction. This is the de facto card to get if you plan to run current generation games at 4K, since it’s up to 50% faster than the previous generation RTX 2080 SUPER and doesn’t command the exorbitant price of the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 ( both of which are a mere 3%-5% faster in real world performance). It has an HDMI 2.1 port for passing through 4K @ 120Hz, which it has the power to drive even in resource hungry games like Elden Ring, Battlefield 2042 or Cyberpunk 2077.
EVGA’s XC3 Ultra model is a “narrower” dual slot heatsink with triple fan cooling and a protective metal backplate. It has approximately similar dimensions as the 3080 FE, so it can fit in smaller or more restrictive cases. It boasts a modest 1755Hz Boost overclock compared ot the stock 1710MHz Boost on the 3080 FE.
EVGA’s FTW3 Ultra model comes equipped with a ridiculously large triple slot heatsink with triple fan cooling and a protective metal backplate. This amount of dissipation allows the card to run cooler and quieter than the reference model RTX 3080 FE. This also enables the FTW3 Ultra model to have a bit more aggressive 1800MHz Boost overclock. Lastly and certainly the least important detail, let’s not forget about the RGB lighting. There’s enough there to make this card stand out in both traditional and vertical orientations.
New Release: 48″ LG UltraGear 48GP900-B 4K HDR OLED Gaming Monitor for $1296.99
LG UltraGear 48GP900 48″ 4K (3840×2160) OLED Gaming Monitor
For those of you who love LG OLED TVs (for good reason) but don’t like the idea of using a TV for a computer monitor, there’s now an answer. LG has released its first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. At first glance, the 48GP900 with its 48″ LG WOLED 10-bit color HDR display seems very similar to the 48″ LG C1 OLED TV. The panel is very similar, but there are some key differences. Instead of the semi glossy coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 features an anti-glare low reflective coating that is undoubtedly a better fit for close up monitor usage. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It does carry over the HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatiblity for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as VRR and G-SYNC support, but the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when used as a PC monitor. Last and certainly least important of all, there is subtle RGB backlighting on the rear of the monitor that isn’t present on the OLED TVs. This is one of the best gaming monitors you’ll find on the market right now.

The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ Intel Core i7-12700H Alder Lake RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1599
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ Intel Core i7-12700 Alder Lake RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD
Walmart is offering an outstanding deal on the new Lenovo Legion 5 Pro laptop that is also equipped with the 12th generation Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU and RTX 3070 GPU. The RTX 3070 GPU in this gaming laptop also has a TGP rating of 140W, and it performs as well as the MSI Crosshair on paper. In real world benchmarks, the Legion 5 Pro is one of the best performing gaming laptops on the market. It also looks more like a standard laptop, so you might want to pick this over the Crosshair if you’re not into the gamer aesthetic.
ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1660 Ti Gaming PC
ASUS ROG STRIX AMD Ryzen 5 3600X GTX 1660 Ti Gaming PC w/ 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
Walmart is offering this AMD Ryzen 5 3600X GTX 1660 Ti equipped gaming PC for only $799. The GTX 1660 Ti is still a very capable video card that can handle just about any game at 1080p resolution. You certainly won’t find a more powerful video card for this price.
