Daily Deals: Preorder the Spider
Today's daily deals for Saturday, August 19 include preorders for the Spider-Man 2 special edition PlayStation 5 console, discounts on a handful of first-party Nintendo Switch games, a PS5 SSD on sale, Beats Studio Buds for 24% off, and more. Check out these offers and a lot more below.
Spider-Man 2 is exactly two months away, which means it's time to start preordering all the goodies. First, you can grab the Spider-Man 2 PS5 special edition. It's rare to see Sony create a special edition PS5, and this is a pretty good one, with the iconic Spider-Man red getting overtaken by Venom. It also means you still have enough time to do a full series replay, which you can do by buying the Spider-Man Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, which comes with the original Spider-Man Remastered, all its DLC, and the Miles Morales game. This will set you up for everything that's on the way in October when Spider-Man 2 drops on PlayStation 5.
Are you in the 50% of Switch owners that don't own Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? Or, do you know a friend or family member that somehow doesn't have this game yet? Well, today you can snag the incredibly popular kart racer for $20 off, along with a handful of other first-party Nintendo Switch games. Get Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey, Skyward Sword HD, and more on big discounts. Well, big for Nintendo Switch games, at least.
Everybody 1-2-Switch is one of the most joked about Switch games in recent memory. And it's on sale today for just $21.99, so you can see what all of the hype is about for yourself. I recently brought it over to a friend's house for a party, and while it wasn't a total blast… It was actually fairly fun! As long as everyone buys into the ridiculousness of what's on display, it's possible to have a pretty good time with Everybody 1-2-Switch. For some, that's probably worth the discounted price tag.
The Splatoon 3 Switch Pro Controller disappeared from store shelves shortly after the game's release last year. But somehow, it's back in stock at Walmart today. This pro controller has handles themed after the game, and splats of ink all over the front and back. I use this pro controller regularly, and it's become one of my favorites.
Sonic Boom is one of the most recent Sonic cartoons, and while the Sonic Boom games aren't very good, the show is pretty great! This steelbook comes with the entire series on Blu-ray across six discs. This means over 20 hours of Sonic Boom featuring fan-favorite characters like Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Sticks, and Dr. Eggman.
Everyone needs more storage, and today you can get a whopping terabyte of storage for your Nintendo Switch console, smartphone, or other MicroSD-compatible device with the 1TB Extreme Plus MicroSDXC card from SanDisk.
The Silicon Power XS70 SSD with a preinstalled robust aluminum heatsink costs well under $100. The aluminum heatsink is still slim enough to fit in the PS5 without obstruction. It boasts transfer speeds of up to 7300MB/s read and 6800MB/s write, comfortably faster than the 5500MB/s minimum recommended requirement. It actually performs a little better than the Crucial P5 Plus, the original WD Black SN850, and the Samsung 980 Pro, although that won't make a difference in your PS5.
Today Amazon is offering an excellent deal on a very capable mid-range AMD GPU. You can pick up the XFX Speedster AMD Radeon RX 6800 16GB GPU for only $429.99. Even better yet, you get a free voucher for the upcoming Starfield game. This card is a perfect card for 1080p and 1440p gaming and it's considerably less expensive than NVIDIA alternatives. The Radeon RX 6800 is only about 5%-10% slower than an NVIDIA RTX 4070. At its current deal price, it's a whopping $170 cheaper than an RTX 4070.
Woot has a pair of brand new Beats Studio Buds + true wireless noise cancelling earbuds for $129.95, or 24% off the MSRP of $170. These include a 1 year Apple warranty. The Beats Studio Buds + are designed to be worn while actively working out; they are IPX4 rated to protect against precipitation and perspiration, they feature active noise cancellation as well as a transparency mode for the times you need to be aware of your surroundings, and they boast up to a 36 hour battery life.
Amazon has the ibaye RGB LED Corner Floor Lamp for only $34.99 after you clip a 20% coupon on the product page and apply 30% off coupon code "30FHE52F". Prime members can get another $3 off on top of that simply by logging into their account, dropping the price to $31.99. This floor lamp connects to your smartphone or mobile device via WiFi and lets you program the RGB LED lights to your hearts content. We've never tried this model, but for $32, it's far cheaper than any of the other RGB floor lamps we've seen.
Amazon is currently offering the LEGO Icons Back to The Future Time Machine (Delorean) 10300 building kit for $160, a $40 price drop from its $200 MSRP. This is basically a 3-in-1 kit. You get to choose which type of Delorean time machine you want to build. Each movie from the Back to the Future Trilogy had a different car design, and the instructions and part materials allow you to build any of those three (but you can only build one at a time). The Delorean from the first movie features the lightning rod and plutonium chamber. The Delorean from the second movie has fold-down hover conversion tires as well as a Mr Fusion energy reactor. The Delorean from the third movie has stylish whitewall tires and a hood mounted circuit board.
Amazon is offering a really cool Anker Transformers: Optimus Prime themed 10,000mAh Power Bank and 65W Wall Charger Hybrid for $69.99 after a $30 coupon that you can clip on the product page. If you're looking for an all-in-one solution for both when you're at home and when you roll out, and you want it in an attractive design, this is most definitely the device you're looking for.
The Anker device itself is certainly more than meets the eye. This is a power bank and wall charger in one. What that means is that there's a 10,000mAh battery pack to charge your mobile devices on the go. However, it can also transform into a fast charging AC adapter with its built-in retractable plug so you can switch to using grid power whenever it's available.
Amazon is offering an ADDTAM 3-Outlet 4-Port Power Strip for only $10.89 after a 36% off coupon code "GUEN5FQ8". The power strip has three AC outlets and four USB ports. There are two USB Type-C ports and two USB Type-A ports. The USB Type-C ports can charge at 5V/3A (15W) and the USB Type-A ports can charge at 5V/2.4A (12W) with a max of 22.5W at any given moment. The extension cord is about 5 feet long, which should be enough cordage to get this closer to your desktop. The plug head is flat so it won't stick out and it is angled by 45 degrees so it won't block your other outlet. What's rare about this little strip compared to others is that it is easily wall or desk mountable. Instead of using annoying keyholes on the back of the strip, this one has screw mounts on either side of it. A final note, this strip is ETL and FCC certified and conforms to the UL standard.
For this week only, Sony has decided to slash prices on their PS5 console and DualSense controllers. You'll see this sale at quite a few vendors, and that includes Amazon.
Today Amazon is offering the 2021 Apple iPad 10.2" Wi-Fi 64GB tablet for only $249.99 after an additional $20 instant discount that's automatically applied during checkout. This iPad normally retails for $329, so you're saving about 25%. This is the lowest price we've ever seen for what was already the most affordable iPad you can get and matches what we saw on Amazon Prime Day. Even at its $329 MSRP, the 2021 Apple iPad is $110 cheaper than the 2022 Apple iPad, $170 cheaper than the iPad Mini, $270 cheaper than the iPad Air, and $470 cheaper than the iPad Pro.and 30FHE52FGUEN5FQ8
