Holy shit Days Gone is 16.99 on amazon too . If you are on the verge of buying it at 20 but was a little hold on it. now it is more difficult to pass it.

Picked up Ultra Boost 19 for $80 after taxes. I wasn't planning on buying shoes but my new pair now has a visible hole. Figure I didn't care much about getting something new, so last year's pair should work. Just hope these old shoes hold up until I either get these new pairs in the mail or when I get my friend's year old brook (one size bigger than my feet, so these should work as secondary pairs for work).

This has probably been posted but the Kindle deals which are already good are even better if you trade in an old Kindle. I had my eye on a Paperwhite as a gift. It's usually 125, it's at 85 for BF/CM. But if you trade in an old device (I have a shitty 7 year old Kindle Touch to dump), you get credit for that (only $5 for that device) but an extra 25% off. So it came out to like 64 bucks after tax, a really nice deal. You also just have to confirm the trade in then you have a few weeks to ship it.

Where did you get them for that price? I was looking on the Adidas website and with 30% off they are like $120.

It’s good but there is a couple of worries with this PC. Mainly thermal throttle which one of the reviews seems to highlight.
Agreed.

Good thing about modern HP is that you can easily swap into better case and use better cooling/etc.

That unit deserves a 360MM rad for both the GPU and CPU :) Honestly a DH15U in stock two fan guise would kick that stock HP watercoolers butt in cooling efficiency.

I bought my pair via Finishline. They had the orange blend for a base of $105 (some people hate how these shoes look, but I like the orange well enough), and this was before the 25% discount code. Reviewed my order, the final price was $85. More than happy with that purchase.

Also got 5% back due to the Chase Freedom.

Were there any good Monitor deals?
Found an excellent deal on an Alienware 34" ultra wide monitor 120hz gsnyc for only $680. I still see Slickdeals posting good deal for equivalent monitors

Felt good getting some decent deals on recent-ish releases this BF.

Control - $25 at Target
Judgment - $25 at Best Buy
Shenmue III - $35 at Best Buy

Shenmue just released like 12 days prior so I was surprised to see that, but that's probably not a good thing for the future of the franchise.

Can someone tell me if this will work for my switch?

Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C, Ultra-High Capacity Premium Portable Charger, 20100mAh External Battery, 6A Output Type-C Port for USB-C MacBooks, Nexus 6P/5X & PowerIQ for iPhone, iPad, Samsung & More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014ZO46LK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_qxw5DbW5FYNB7
will work but you won't get particularly impressive charging speeds (especially if charging while playing). snag one that has PD (power delivery). the Switch doesn't take huge advantage of what PD can offer but it helps.

Do you have a recommendation?
multiple!
all of the above also seem to be at solid sale prices or have checkout coupons, so that should help. i have way too many battery packs!

Amazon has the August Smart lock on sale today for $55.30. I’m tempted, but then a part of me has this suspicion that it’s at a low price because everyone is clearing out inventory because a new model is going to be announced at CES in January.

August Smart Lock - Keyless Home Entry with Your Smartphone - Silver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0752XNC8M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_yOu5DbHH6M7J9

EDIT: just a heads up if anyone gets this, you’ll also need the August connect Wifi bridge if you want to be able to lock and unlock your door from where ever you may be in the world.
Wal-Mart has the Pro version of this including Connect for $120 (silver)

I had the pro version at one point and I didnt like it that much... it was so big and cumbersome... like a big hockey puck... at least with the non-pro version that sort of resembles an inside door lock system...
Just the appearance you didn't like or was there functionality that wasn't great?

Has anyone seen any good deals on SSDs? Looking for one of those m2 ones or whatever they’re called. The ones that look like a stick of ram.

Dam lucky. Been checking brickseek the last couple of days after finding out stores were lowering the price but all the walmarts in Northern Jersey still show the bf price. I want it bad
I had originally bought online for 350 and heard they were dropping lower in some stores. Cancelled that with the quickness. The prices are so random and fluctuate more than the stock market haha

My local WalMarts have two pallets full at $349. Planning on modding a SF2 cab I got for $74 last month, but if TMNT hits $200 I gotta bite.
Keep checking. I think they'll keep going down and especially after the holidays

GameStop is giving an additional $50 for console trade ins if you Put the credit towards a new console. OG Xbox one is trading for $125 after the coupon, might be worth it to upgrade to an S for the 4K Blu-ray player.

PSN has Valkyria Chronicles Remastered + Valkyria Chronicles 4 for $20. I don't need to have played 2 and 3, right? Those were PSP games.

PS4 Slim 1TB trade-in value is $150. You can get $200 for it if you put that towards a Pro, then?
