Daily Deals: Get the Nintendo Switch OLED for Cheaper Than the Non-OLED Model, 25% Off PS5 Pulse 3D Headset, and More
Check out the new hot daily deals for today, including yet another price drop on the Nintendo Switch OLED gaming console (both colors now available), 25% off a PS5 Pulse 3D headset, $80 off the new Bose QuietComfort 45 noise cancelling headphones, a WD Black 1TB PS5 SSD with preinstalled heatsink for $110, and more.
Nintendo Switch OLED from $284
Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons for about $284 with free shipping. That’s actually less expensive than the original non-OLED Switch. 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.
Note that since this is shipped from Amazon Store UK and not Amazon, you’ll be receiving the UK version of the Switch OLED. The Switch OLED is not region locked, so you’ll be able to play US games without any hassle. However, you’ll be receiving a UK plug. You’ll need to get a UK to US plug adapter in order to charge your Switch here in the States.
PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Gaming Headset for $75.59
Amazon (via Amazon Global Store UK) is offering the PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset for only $76.80. That’s a 22% discount from the MSRP of $99.99 and the lowest price we’ve seen for the official PlayStation 5 headset. Note that Amazon Global Store UK is part of Amazon, but your item will be shipped overseas from the UK. The shipping is free, fortunately, but you’ll receive your package in about a week instead of 2 days.
We reviewed this headset and, like the very impressive DualSense controller, the quality and features noticeably enhanced our PS5’s “next-gen” experience. There are other less expensive headsets that will get the job done, but the Pulse is the perfect PS5 complement without cutting any corners. If the only thing that had been holding you back was the hefty $100 price tag, then this deal might be just the excuse you were looking for.
Bose QuietComfort 45 Over-Ear Headphones
Today, Amazon is offering a 25% discount on the QuietComfort 45 active noise cancelling over-ear headphones, now only $249. The QC45 is the newest model in the Bose QuietComfort lineup. Upgrades include USB Type-C fast charging, a longer (up to 24-hour) battery life, better passive noise isolation, and a new “Aware” mode. Unlike the traditional “Silent Mode” which activates noise cancellation and suppresses ambient noise, “Aware Mode” does the opposite. The microphone picks up ambient noises and amplifies them so that you can listen in on the outside world without taking off your headphones.
If you haven’t already invested in a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, you’re missing out. Active noise cancelling is a miracle of science that works amazing well. The Bose QuietComfort 45 offers one of the best iterations of this technology, and it is very well worth the money spent. If you’re looking to buy a noise cancelling headphone right now, and you’re budget conscious, there’s no better option than this.
Cheap Rubber Encased Hex Dumbbells on Amazon
If you’ve been stockpiling exercise equipment to work out at home, you might have realized that the cost of free weights can add up quickly. If you were to pick up weights at your nearest brick & mortar store, you could pay around $2-$4 per pound of weights. Today, Amazon has 10-, 15-, and 30-pound weights at only about $1 per pound. Deals like these aren’t flashy, but they’re very welcome.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9″ WiFi 256GB (2021) for $999.99
The latest Apple iPad Pro 12.9″ 256GB model is $200 off today on Amazon. It currently costs the same as the 128GB model. This is the absolute best tablet you can get on the market. It features a gorgeous 12.9″ Liquid Retina Mini-LED XDR display with ProMotion, True Tone, and P3 wide color, which you won’t find in even the smaller 11″ iPad Pro, and an Apple M1 chip with 8GB of RAM to power it. Unlike some other Apple devices, the iPad Pro has a universal USB Type-C port for easy fast charging.
Officially PS5 Certified: WD Black SN850 M.2 SSD
Today Amazon has the 1TB WD Black SN850 PS5-compatible SSD with heatsink for just a tad over $100. The WD SN850 is currently the most popular and one of the best SSDs to get for your PS5 storage upgrade. It’s also the only SSD that’s officially certified for the PS5 console. It’s blazing fast drive with transfer speeds rated at up to 7,000 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface. This model even includes a heatsink that fits in the PS5 slot and is more robust than most other preattached heatsinks from other brands.
65″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1797
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 2022 LG Evo C2 65″ OLED TV. The LG C2 is currently one of the best TVs on the market. Unlike other brands who have only recently started pushing out OLED TVs, LG has several generations of improvements over the years. The C2 is the newest model and, unlike the previous generation C1, features an “Evo” OLED panel that offers higher peak brightness (the one area that OLED TVs in general could improve upon) and thus even wider HDR range.
The Evo C2 is also a perfect gaming TV. 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.
Ameriwood Home Lumina Fireplace TV Stand
This unique TV stand normally sells for about $350 on Amazon, but today it’s dropped down to $260. There’s a lot going for it at the price, especially since you don’t see this kind of TV stand very often. The stand measures 65″ long and supports up to 120lbs of weight on the table top. The most distinquishing featuree is the 23″ wide electric fireplace insert that isn’t just for show; it’s warm enough to keep a 400 sq ft room nice and toasty. If you prefer to just enjoy the lighting effects, you can turn the heating element off separately. On either side of the fireplacement insert are self-illuminated cubbies that hold tempered glass shelving (each shelf holds up to 20lbs). There are over 7,000 reviews on Amazon with a 4.7/5 star rating, and keep in mind that nearly all of them paid more for this stand than will.
Razer Anzu Smart Glasses for $49.99
The Razer Anzu smart glasses are back down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen. They normally retail for an admittedly ridiculous price of $199.99, but today they’re 75% off, down to only $49.99. The Razer Anzu glasses comes with two types of interchangeable lenses; blue-light filtering lenses for PC use and polarized lenses for outdoor use. They also feature a built-in mic and bluetooth speaker for hands-free calling.
50% Off Horizon Forbidden West Collector’s Edition
The Horizon Forbidden West Collector’s Edition for PS5 and PS4 is normally $199.99, but today Amazon has it for only $99.99. Not only do you get the game itself, you get the very awesome Tremortusk statue (which measure an impressive 14″ tall), a smaller Aloy figure, digital soundtrack, digital comic book, and a bunch of cosmetic DLC for your character.
Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat Cabinet for $199
Starting today at Walmart, the Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat has been marked down to just $199.

Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 Gaming PC for $1574
Amazon has the best price on this RTX 3080 equipped Alienware Aurora gaming PC. The RTX 3080 is your best bang for your buck for 60+fps 4K gaming. It’s significantly more powerful than the RTX 3070 or the RTX 2080 Ti. In addition to the powerful RTX 3080 GPU, this PC boasts a liquid-cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
New Release: $9 Off Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen
It has been almost three years since the 1st gen Apple AirPods Pro was released, so the 2nd gen AirPods Pro have plenty of upgrades under the hood, even if it hasn’t aesthetically changed one bit. The biggest upgrade is the new Apple H2 chip, which promises better audio quality and improved active noice cancellation. There’s also a new feature called “Adaptive Transparency Mode”. This mode actually amplifies the ambient sound so that you can hear your surroundings better. In-ear earbuds traditionally have very good noise suppression even without active noise cancellation enabled, so this is a great way for people to listen in on the outside world without having to remove the earbuds.
40% Off HBO Max When You Prepay For a Year
Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon Premieres August 21
Pay for 12 months of HBO Max and get 40% off your order total. HBO Max is normally $9.99/month ($119.88/yr) for the ad-supported plan and $14.99/month ($179.88/yr) for the ad-free plan. Instead you’d be paying $69.99 for 1 year of the ad-supported plan or $104.99 for 1 year of the ad-free plan. That’s technically a savings of 41.6%.
This is the perfect time to sign up for HBO Max. The highly anticipated Game of Thrones’ House of the Dragon premiered exclusively on HBO Max starting August 21. Set 200 years before the events of the original Game of Thrones TV series, House of the Dragon covers the fall of House Targaryen. In addition to Game of Thrones, HBO Max is host to the entire collection of DC movies (including The Batman), Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings and movies like Dune, King Richard, Free Guy, and much, much more.
