The Google Pixel 3A and 3A XL are up to $160 off at several retailers

Published

on

Google’s midrange Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL are more affordable than ever today. Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo have discounted the 3A with 64GB of storage to $279 ($120 off). The larger Pixel 3A XL is seeing an even bigger $160 price cut at those stores, which brings the cost of the 64GB model down to $319. We’ve seen a lower price on the Pixel 3A around the holidays, though if you like big screens, there’s never been a better deal for the Pixel 3A XL.

Both the Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL take after the design of the Pixel 3 phone, though since they cost less, there are a few compromises in terms of build materials and specs. The phone’s body is made of plastic, and it has the Snapdragon 670 processor. Otherwise, the experience is mostly the same as what you’ll get by spending hundreds more on a flagship device. The camera is great, both phones feature an OLED screen and a headphone jack. Some other perks are that these work with all US carriers and it will get major Android updates and new features for the next few years.

B&H Photo shared that this deal will last until June 27th, though it’s not as clear if other retailers will have this offer going through the next month.

Persona 5 Royal is one of the many games available with GameStop’s buy two, get one free deal

GameStop is offering a great deal where if you buy two games (new or used), you can get a third one for free. As is usually the case, you’ll get the most affordable one for free, so you can save the most money if you get three $60 games. Notably, this is the first time that GameStop has offered a deal like this for new games, so take advantage of it if you have a few titles on your wishlist.

Granted, there are some exclusions, like new (used games are eligible) Nintendo-published Switch games, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That said, many excellent games are still eligible, like Persona 5 Royal, Resident Evil 3, Doom Eternal, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and more.

Best Buy has switched on its great deal on the seventh-generation iPad, which at this rate has been available for the better part of a month.

The 32GB tablet normally costs $330, but Best Buy has it now for $250 — matching the best price we’ve seen yet.

If you want more storage, the 128GB model has had a full $100 knocked off its price. Instead of $429, it’s going for $329 at Best Buy.

We’ll have plenty more deals to share with you tomorrow, as Memorial Day sales are starting to pick up. So, see you then.

GOG’s summer sale discounts Prey, Metro Exodus, and many other DRM-free games

Published

By

GOG.com has kicked off its summer sale on DRM-free PC games, filled with deals on new and old titles. This sale lasts until June 15th. A few of the highlights include Metro Exodus for $20 and Prey: Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes the base game, its soundtrack, and the Mooncrash DLC for just $12. Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition is $22.50, which is an excellent price for such a huge game (and it supports cross-save with the Nintendo Switch version of the game).

In addition to discounting many more standalone games than we listed above, GOG is doing something interesting with this summer’s sale by letting you save even more on games that share a theme. For instance, buying three RPG titles or action games knocks an extra 5 percent off the already-discounted final cost, while getting five or more games takes 10 percent off. There are plenty of other bundles you can build that take advantage of that discount, ranging from games made by a single developer like Paradox, Devolver Digital, or Activision.

GOG is also using its summer sale celebration as an excuse to offer up a new demo of System Shock, the remake of the influential FPS game that’s currently in development. Also, Cyberpunk 2077 is not discounted, but if you wanted 100 percent of your purchase to support the developer, GOG is the place to buy it since it’s owned and operated by CD Projekt Group.

The iPhone XS Max is $300 off at Woot

Published

Woot is offering the iPhone XS Max at its lowest price yet. You can pick up a new model in space gray with 64GB for $700. This is 30 percent off of its usual price, and if you’re keen on having the latest-generation iPhone, it’s a good way to save. The 2018 iPhone XS Max has a big 6.5-inch OLED screen, and it’s powered by the A12 Bionic processor. The version that Woot is selling is unlocked to work with any US carrier.

Woot also has the 256GB and 512GB configurations of the iPhone XS Max in space gray. If you want either silver or gold, the only option is the $900 512GB version of the phone, which is 33 percent off its regular price.

Also in the world of phone deals, Google’s Pixel 3A and 3A XL are up to $160 off. This deal lasts until late June, but I mention it here because I’ve noticed stock beginning to deplete from a few retailers. So, it’s worth mentioning again that the Pixel 3A is $120 off for a final price of $279, whereas the Pixel 3A XL has a bigger $160 discount that brings it down to $319. Now, for the links.

The skinny on both phones is that they can take pictures that look almost identical to ones shot from the Pixel 3 (in other words, very good), and they have the latest Android software.

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch is $15 off at Best Buy, bringing it down to $45. Switch games tend to keep hold of their full price for a long time, so it’s noteworthy in a way that this one is a little more affordable today. My colleague Sam Byford said in his review that it’s the best version of the game compared to the PS4 and PC versions simply because you can take it on the go. It also includes a bunch of exclusive features, like the ability to play through the entirety of the campaign in 2D mode.

DJI’s Osmo Action camera is almost half off at Amazon

Published

Today’s deals are a mix of low-priced gadgets made even more affordable as well as some high-end products that don’t usually see a discount. The biggest price cut is on DJI’s Osmo Action 4K HDR camera. It usually costs $500, but today at Amazon, you can get it for $288. The price reduction is impressive, but what makes this deal extra special is that the camera comes with a 128GB microSD card and DJI’s Care Refresh service plan that allows up to two replacement units in one year.

Aukey’s 65W Omnia charger with two USB-C ports.

Next is Aukey’s 65W Omnia GaN wall charger. Normally $50, it’s $38 over at Amazon if you check out with the offer code DETL5M4Y. This model features two USB-C ports, and it’s powerful enough to charge an iPad Pro and a phone, a laptop and a Nintendo Switch, and anything else that gets its charge through USB-C.

Apple’s previous-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro with 256GB of storage is seeing the biggest price cut we’ve seen. At B&H Photo, you can pick it up for $899, which is $100 less than what other retailers are currently charging. The newer 2020 model in this size configuration and with this much storage costs $1,099. And aside from having more rear-facing cameras (three versus one), LIDAR functionality for improved AR, and a slightly more capable processor, they don’t differ all that much.

Amazon is bundling the Echo Show 5 smart display with the new Blink Mini home security cam for $75. Outside of any deals, the display and the camera together would normally cost $125, so you’re saving $50 with today’s discount. The Blink Mini works with Alexa-powered devices, including the Echo Show 5, and you can summon a live view of what the camera sees right on the display.
