Check out the new hot daily deals for today, including a 48″ LG 4K OLED TV that’s under $900 (one of the best gaming monitors on the market), an 8BitDo Pro 2 controller that’s $30 cheaper than the Switch Pro controller and nearly as good, and a 1TB SSD that meets all the requirements for the PS5 console for under $100. These deals and more below.
48″ LG C1 4K OLED Smart Gaming TV for $897
The 48″ LG C1 OLED TV has dropped back down in price to $896.99. That’s $600 off MSRP and only $100 more than the best deal we saw on Amazon Prime Day. The C1 is classified as a TV, and it is, but it’s also one of the best gaming monitors on the market. It’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than the other highest end gaming monitors like the Samsung Neo G9 49″ Mini LED or the Alienware 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor, and is arguably better. It has HDMI 2.1 ports to support 4K @ 120Hz if you have a gaming PC equipped with an RTX 30 series GPU, PS5, or Xbox Series X, as well as variable refresh rate (VRR), G-SYNC, and ALLM. OLED panels have unrivalled response times, so ghosting is non-existent. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, OLED TVs offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, and wider color gamut. Not only does this translate to better gaming, but also better image quality overall, including with 4K HDR content.
8BitDo Pro 2 Nintendo Switch & PC Compatible Wireless Bluetooth Gamepad Controller
Save $10 on this well-rated controller for the Switch. The 8BitDo Pro 2 is the updated version of the very popular Pro+ model. It uses Bluetooth so it works with the Switch out of the box with no dongle required. For almost half the price of a Switch Pro controller, it has a lot going for it. The SN30 Pro 2 supports button remapping, adjustable analog sticks, hair triggers, and macros. Unlike most other 3rd party controllers, this supports rumble (not HD rumble though). There’s even a handy little switch that lets you instantly change from Nintendo Switch to PC pairing. Of course the retro style also looks great. If you don’t want to pony up $70 for the Switch Pro controller, this is easily the next best thing.
Adata Premium 1TB M.2 SSD for PS5 for $99.99
A PS5-compatible 1TB SSD has finally dropped to under $100. Amazon has the Adata Premium 1TB M.2 SSD, which was made specifically for the PS5 console, for only $99.99 after you clip a $10 coupon on the product page. This is currently the least expensive PS5-compatible 1TB SSD, especially one that already has a preinstalled heatsink. It boasts transfer speeds of up to 6,100MB/s, which is considerably faster than the PS5’s recommended minimum of 5,500MB/s. The preinstalled heatsink is made out of aluminum and has a very thin profile so it won’t get in the way of the PS5 cover properly closing.
Wingspan Board Game for $39.94
Wingspan is an incredibly good board game. So good in fact that we deemed it the best board game of 2019. Improbably enough, the year’s hottest game is one about keeping birds in a nature reserve. But the wide appeal of the theme, lovely art and simple rules meant lots of players got to enjoy the fiendish engine-building game beneath. A choice of a mere four actions blossoms into an excruciating balance between adding birds, feeding them and scoring points. Yet tricky as it is, the pace of play leaves you itching for another try to evolve your strategies, while 170 bird cards ensure every game is different. The board game is worth it even at the $65 retail price, but today it’s nearly 40% off.
Acer Predator Orion 3000 Intel Core i7-11700F RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1459.99
This is a great price for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 GPU. It’s significantly more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti or the RTX 2080 SUPER. The RTX 3070 is the ideal card for 1440p gaming, even at high refresh rates. It’s paired with an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11700F up to 4.9GHz 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and dual SSD and HDD storage. The case looks slick too, with a tempered glass side panel and plenty of RGB lighting.
Meta Oculus VR Game Sale
From now until August 21, Meta is offering discounts on over 30 different Oculus Quest video games. These include some very well made fan favorites like In Death: Unchained (a medieval first person brawler), Thrill of the Fight (a calorie burning boxing simulation), Job Simulator (which is exactly what the title implies, but for some reason way more fun than a real job), or Wander (essentially a VR Google Maps).
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $39.99
Both digital and physical copies are discounted
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch has dropped to $39.99, a 33% savings from its $59.99 MSRP. This is undeniably the best racing game for the Switch console. The base game includes a whopping 42 characters and 48 courses, and you can get 48 more courses as paid DLC. Choose from a dizzying array of fun game modes to choose from and the ability to play with up to 4 player split screen or even more over online multiplayer, and some of the best graphics to grace the Switch console. Forget best racing game, MK8 is a serious contender for best Nintendo Switch game, period.
Dell Has Physical Copies of Switch Games on Sale (Including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $38.99)
Dell has physical copies of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, as well as a few other Nintendo Switch titles, for $39.99 or less. Physical games aren’t outdated just yet. They can be traded back to stores, exchanged for other games, or swapped between two different Nintendo Switches much easier than their digital counterparts.
ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3080 GPU $799
The ASUS ROG STRIX model is considered by many to be the very best RTX 3080 variant on the market. It’s usually hundreds of dollars more than the 3080 FE price. That’s in large part because of the incredible cooling potential of the massive 3-slot heatsink combined with the quietest triple fan cooling you’ll find on any RTX 3080. Despite the low noise levels, the ROG STRIX offers a significantly OC’ed 1890-1935MHz boost clock compared to the stock 1710MHz boost on the 3080 FE.
New Google Pixel 4 Unlocked Smartphone for $229.99
If you’re looking for a good smartphone without having to jump through the hoops of signing up for a cell phone service or finding ways to unlock it, then this deal is for you. Woot has the Google Pixel 4 smartphone, completely unlocked and brand new with 1 year manufacturer’s warranty, for under $250. The Pixel 4 was released in October 2019, so it’s a few generations old, but it packs plenty of power and has an excellent camera, easily one of the best cameras in its price range even today. It features a 5.7″ 1080×2280 P-OLED display, a Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 8-core processor, 64GB storage, and has Android 10 preinstalled, although it can be updated to Android 13.
Sony’s New A90K 48″ and 42″ 4K OLED TVs Specifically for PS5 and PC Gaming
Sony recently released its 2022 A90K OLED TV, catering specifically to PC and PS5 gamers. Today, Amazon has it dropped the price enough that this is a better deal than the equivalently sized LG C2 OLED models. The A90K is only available in 42″ and 48″ sizes; they’re meant for closer range viewing, like at your gaming desk or in a smaller space. Unlike most other TVs, the included stand is adjustable: it can be mounted nearly flush with the table surface, or it can be raised to perfectly fit a soundbar underneath.
The A80J has a host of gaming-centric features like HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz passthrough for PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers as well as 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for PC use, variable refresh rate (VRR), and ALLM. There are also some PS5 exclusive features like Auto HDR Tone Mapping (similar to HGiG) and Auto Genre Picture Switch. The A90K uses LG’s WOLED panel, so image quality should be similar to the LG OLED TVs.
ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1660 Ti Gaming PC for $499
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.
Resident Evil Decades of Horror Bundle
The latest Humble Bundle offers a sweet deal for any Resident Evil fans with a gaming PC — or, if you’ve managed to snag one, a Steam Deck. You can spend between $1 and $30, and you’ll get up to 10 Resident Evil games. If you were to buy them all at MSRP, they’d set you back $275. Like I said, sweet deal. But bundle goes away on August 24, so grab it before then if you want it. The games include the rebuilt editions of Resident Evil 2 and 3, as well as a 50% off coupon voucher for Resident Evil: Village.
Apple Watch Series 7 for $289.99
The Apple Watch Series 7 41mm GPS model (in Red only) has dropped back down to $289.99, which is only $10 more than the best price we saw on Amazon Prime Day. 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.
Razer Anzu Smart Glasses for $59.99 (Was $200)
The Razer Anzu glasses come with two sets of interchangeable lenses; blue-light filtering lenses for indoor PC use and polarized sunglass lenses for outdoor use. Blue light filtering lenses are designed to reduce eye strain and fatigue caused by high energy blue light emitted from your computer monitor. Blue light is a melatonin suppressor, and the theory is that using your monitor at night suppresses your natural sleep cycle. If that’s true, blue light filtering lenses should help you fall asleep better, even after an intense late night gaming session. The tinted polarized lenses work much like any regular pair of sunglasses; the polarized film provides 99% UVA/UVB protection and is designed to reduce glare and eliminate potential eye damage from the sun.
34″ Dell S3422DWG 3440×1440 Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor for $389.99
Dell has the excellent 34″ Dell S3422DWG gaming monitor for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. At its current price of $389.99, it’s $60 cheaper than what we saw last Black Friday. This monitor features a 34″ 3440×1440 ultra-wide 1800R curved VA panel with a 1ms response time, 144Hz refresh rate, 3,000:1 contrast ratio and 90% DCI-P3 color coverage. It’s not officially G-SYNC compatible, although we have personally tested it and G-SYNC does indeed run fine on this monitor (as is usually the case with most gaming monitors these days). You get a 3 year warranty and it’s eligible for Dell’s Premium Panel Exchange, which allows you to get a free panel replacement during the warranty even if only one bright pixel is found.
Blue Yeti Nano USB Microphone for $69.99
Blue Yeti microphones are one of the most popular choices for streamers, YouTubers, and podcasters, and you can grab the Blue Yeti Nano USB mic on sale for $69.99 today. This mic comes with multiple pickup patterns, meaning you can adjust how it picks up audio for your needs. It works for multiple people podcasting, interviews, or for just one person streaming on their own. And, it works seamlessly with platforms like Twitch and Discord, making it an easy plug and play option for folks looking to take their audio quality to the next level.

Amazon has the 13″ model for $1150, a substantial 12% price drop from its $1300 MSRP. The new M2 chip is about 20% more powerful than the previous generation M1 chip, which was already faster than any other CPU found on previous Apple MacBook laptops. The M2 chip is also extremely power efficient, with this laptop boasting up to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge. In addition to the new M2 CPU, this laptop features a gorgeous 13″ Retina display with 500 nits of brightness and P3 wide color, 10-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

The M2 CPU is the same one found in the MacBook Pro mentioned above, but instead of a 10-core GPU this one is equipped with an 8-core GPU. It has a slightly larger display (14″ vs 13″) and it’s lighter, weighing in at a mere 2.7 pounds. The Retina display boats 500 nits of brightness and P3 wide core, and the laptop is equipped with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD.
Get a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G 128GB Smartphone for as Low as $199.99 (Activation Required)
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G phone normally sells for $899.99 by itself. However, if you purchase the phone from Best Buy and activate it on the Verizon or AT&T network right away, you’ll get it for only $299.99. You do not need to sign up for more than one month of service! You can set up a new postpaid Verizon account and cancel after just 1 month. Since this is an instant discount, not a discount over time with bill credits, you will still get to keep the full savings you made off this phone!
Xbox Series S for $249.99
If you want to buy the Xbox Series S console standalone without any kind of bundle, then Adorama currently has it for an unbeatable price of $249, which is $50 off MSRP. The Xbox Series S can play all the same games that the Xbox Series X can play. It’s not as powerful as the Xbox Series X, but it runs games just as well as the Xbox Series S by outputting in native 1440p and upscaling to 4K. You also have access to the entire Xbox Series X library. It’s a great budget friendly solution to access all the amazing games that are on Xbox Game Pass and, of course, it’s $250 cheaper than the Xbox Series X.
Dell G15 15″ RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop $685.99
The G15 is Dell’s gaming-focused, value-minded series of laptops. They cost much less than a comparable Alienware laptop, but borrow some of the same internal features like the dual-fan active cooling system, Alienware’s Command Center software for tweaking gaming settings and optimizing performance, and choice of gaming oriented GPUs.
For a laptop in the $700 price range, you won’t find a more powerful GPU than the RTX 3050 Ti . An RTX 3060 equipped laptop usually runs for about $300-$400 more. The RTX 3050 Ti is a bit more powerful than the previous generation’s GTX 1660 Ti and supports DLSS for better performance in supported games and ray tracing for better lighting effects. This card should be able to handle just about any game on the G15’s 15″ 1080p display without a hitch. It’s paired with an 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.
Newest Apple TV 4K 32GB and 64GB Both on Sale
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 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
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 cancelling 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.
HP Reverb G2 VR Headset
This price has become even more attractive following the Meta Quest 2 price hike. The Reverb G2 normally sells for $599, but Walmart has it for $200 off. The Reverb G2 sports the second highest resolution of any VR headset with 2160×2160 pixels per eye (even more than the already impressive Quest 2’s 1832×1920 resolution), manual IPD adjustment, a far more robust headstrap than the Quest 2, inside-out tracking that doesn’t require external sensors, and off-ear headphones that maintain your peripheral hearing.

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.
