Check out the hot daily deals today, including $50 off the massive LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Daily Bugle or 30% off the LEGO Ideas Treehouse, $40 off the recently released 2nd gen Apple Watch SE, 10% Amazon cashback on LG OLED TVs, and more.
LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Daily Bugle 76178
One of the most impressive LEGO Marvel building kits is on sale today. Walmart has the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Daily Bugle for $300, a price drop of $50. This is a massive structure, comprising of over 3,700 bricks, measuring in at almost 3 feet tall, and weighing in at over 11 pounds. At the discounted price of $300, you’re paying about 8 cents per brick, which is a good value for a themed LEGO set. The kit also includes a grand total of 25 coveted super hero minifigures, including 5 that are unique to this set. The building itself has four stories that have fully decorated interiors and that be opened up and displayed. This is one of the most complex of the Marvel builds (ages 18+ recommended), perfect for the adult collector or a joint venture involving you and your kid.
LEGO Ideas Treehouse 21318
The LEGO Ideas Treehouse is an excellent building kit that was unfortunately made less accessible with its $50 official price hike (from $200 to $250) earlier this year. Fortunately, today you have a chance of getting it for less than even the original MSRP. With a massive 3,036 brick count, you’re paying less than 6 cents per brick. The treehouse measures an impressive 14″ x 10″ x 9″ and includes both green and yellow foliage for seasonal variation.
20% Off New 2022 LEGO Advent Calendars
You know the holiday season is near when the new LEGO Advent Calendars come out to play. The 2022 LEGO Advent Calendars went up for sale in late September, and today Walmart is taking an extra 20% off most of the 2022 sets, including Star Wars, Marvel (Guardians of the Galaxy), LEGO Friends, and LEGO City. Each set comes with 24 minifigures, one for each day leading up to Christmas. That way you’ll have fun assembling a little kit each and every day instead of waiting it out for a singular moment.
LEGO Galaxy Explorer 10497
Walmart is offering the LEGO Galaxy Explorer kit for only $75, a 25% price drop from its original $100 MSRP. This is a faithful remake of the classic 1979 set of the same name, albeit with larger dimensions. The Galaxy Explorer measures a sizeable 21″ long and 11″ wide and weighs just under 4 pounds. With a brick count of 1,254 pieces, you’re only paying about 6 cents per brick, which is a phenomenal deal for a ready to build kit.
34″ Dell S3422DWG 3440×1440 Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor for $379.99
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.
$40 Off the New Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen)
The 2nd generation Apple Watch SE was released just a few months ago and today there’s a welcome $40 discount on a 44mm model that actually makes it less expensive than the 40mm models. The Apple Watch SE is about 10% lighter than the original Apple Watch SE. It features the same S8 processor as the new Apple Watch Series 8. It also boasts a very nice OLED display, 50m water resistance, and car crash detection, all at a $150 lower price tag than the Apple Watch Series 8. It’s only missing a few features like the always-on display and the ECG, so for most people there’s a much better value going for the new SE.
New for 2022: Hallmark Keepsake SEGA Genesis Console Christmas Ornament
Every year Hallmark introduces a new gaming themed Christmas ornament, and this year it’s a cute miniature SEGA Genesis console, complete with dual controllers and a Sonic the Hedgehog game cartridge. Even better, turn on the switch and the ornament illuminates as well as plays sounds from the original Sonic The Hedgehog Game. If you like decorating your tree with unique pieces, this one is totally worth the price. If you haven’t picked one up from previous years, the Super Nintendo (SNES) ornament is also available.
2022 Sony X90K Full Array LED TVs On Sale
Exclusive features for the PS5 console
Among the new 2022 Sony TVs, the X90K series offers the best value for TV enthusiasts; this model features almost all of the premium features you’d want in a TV that prioritizes image quality and it also happens to be the least expensive among the high-end Sony TVs. It features full-array LED backlighting with local dimming zones as well as wide color gamut.
The A80K is marketed as a gaming TV and is host to several welcome gaming-centric features. It has a true 120Hz panel and two HDMI 2.1 ports for running 4K at 120Hz on a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There’s also native variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), which means that the TV automatically switches to a lower latency during gameplay. Exclusive to higher end Sony TVs like this one is a feature catered specifically for the PS5 console called Auto HDR Tone Mapping. It works similarly to HGiG or Dolby Vision. Basically your PS5 will be able to identify your exact TV model and apply the optimized HDR settings specific to your TV, a sort of automatic HDR color calibration if you will. It takes out a lot of tweaking involved on your end (which most people tend to ignore completely) and thus offers a better HDR image out of the box.
86″ LG UQ7590 4K Gaming TV for $1199.99
Features 120Hz panel and HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz gaming
The 2022 85″ LG UQ7590 TV has everything going for it: size, price, and features. You won’t find an 86″ TV, even a barebones unit, that’s cheaper than this TV. There’s an 82″ TV for just under $1000 (which we mentioned below), but it doesn’t have the gaming-centric features of this TV. For starters, it has a native 120Hz panel as well as two HDMI 2.1 ports. That means that the UQ7590 is capable of display 4K @ 120Hz if it’s connected to a PS5 or Xbox Series X console. It also supports VRR, ALLM, and HGiG. Variable refresh rate (VRR) is the TV version of adaptive sync technology like G-SYNC or FreeSync. Auto low latency mode (ALLM) means that the TV will automatically switch to a lower latency when it detects gameplay to eliminate ghosting. HGiG is a mode that offers automatically calibrated HDR tone mapping when you’re gaming on a PS5 or Xbox Series X. It’s similar to Dolby Vision, but specifically for gaming consoles and games
77″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Smart Gaming TV for $2496.99 Plus 10% Amazon Cashback for Prime Cardholders
Must be logged into your Prime account to see this deal
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, then you’re eligible for the no annual fee Amazon Prime Card, which is an amazing card to get because it gives you 5% cashback on all purchases on Amazon. For a limited time, you’ll get 10% cashback on this TV if you have the Prime Card. That means you’ll be getting about $250 back and your final price will essentially be $2247. You will only see this deal IF you have the Amazon Prime Card.
The Evo C2 is an outstanding 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.
42″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $996.99 Plus 10% Amazon Cashback for Prime Cardholders
Must be logged into your Prime account to see this deal
The 42″ replaces LG’s 48″ as its smallest 4K OLED TV on the market. It performs just as well as its larger sized siblings as a gaming TV, but where it really shines is as a gaming monitor for your PC. The 42″ size fits gaming desks better than the 48″, which admittedly is still a bit too large, especially since most of us sit only a few feet away from our monitors. It has HDMI 2.1 ports and supports 4K @ 120Hz and VRR when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, opr RTX 30 series equipped PC. It also boasts 4:4:4 chroma sampling for clear, sharp text as well as sub-1ms response times, ALLM, and native G-SYNC compatibility for zero tearing and ghosting. The new C2 model introduces native GeForce Now and Stadia streaming support.
2021 Apple iPad Mini (Wi-Fi, 64GB)
This is easily the best price for the newest Apple iPad Mini, released in September of 2021. Don’t be fooled by it’s smaller footprint; it boasts superior hardware to the standard sized Apple iPad. The iPad Mini features an 8.3″ Liquid Retina display with True Tone and Wide Color, the capable A15 Bionic processor, USB Type-C port for fast charging, and Apple Pencil 2 compatiblity. If you’re looking for a powerful iPad that’s easiest to carry around, the iPad Mini has all others beat.
Acer Nitro 5 RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop for $699
Walmart is offering an Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop with an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H 6-core processor and GeForce RTX 3060 mobile graphics cards for a mere $699. That is easily the lowest price we’ve ever seen for an RTX 3060 equipped laptop. The RTX 3060 is no slouch; it’s on par with the previous generation’s RTX 2070 and laptops equipped with this GPU usually cost north of $1K. Get it while it lasts.
MSI GP66 RTX 3080 Gaming PC for $1649
This is currently the least expensive RTX 3080 equipped gaming laptop we can find. If you need maximum GPU power in your laptop, then look no further than the RTX 3080. It’s about 20% faster than the RTX 3070 and about 40% faster than the RTX 3060.
Alienware m15 R5 AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1399.99
This Alienware m15 laptop is equipped with a 15″ 1080p 1ms 360Hz IPS display, an upgraded AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core CPU, RTX 3070 GPU with a TGP rating of 125W, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD. This is the most powerful Alienware gaming laptop under $1500 right now. The RTX 3070 GPU is comparable to the previous generation’s RTX 2080, so you’ll have no problem running almost any game at 60+fps on the 1080p display.
Wingspan Board Game for $35.62
Wingspan from Stonemeier Games is an incredibly good board game. So good in fact that we deemed it the best board game of 2019. Wingspan looks like a deceptively simple game; the endgame goal is to attract as many birds as you can to your wildlife preserve and help them proliferate. There are only four actions you can perform: draw a bird card, play a bird card, get food, and lay eggs. Sounds simple enough, right? Well let’s just say these four actions mask an incredibly complex engine-building game with which you will have to juggle between bringing new birds into the fold and keeping your existing birds well stocked and in a breeding frenzy. Wingspan is infinitely replayable, and you’ll find yourself developing and honing new strategies with every subsequent playthough.
Nintendo Switch OLED for $313
Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED for about $309 with free shipping. That’s only $13 more 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.
55″ Samsung “The Frame” 4K QLED TV for $997.99
Save $500 off the new 2022 Samsung “The Frame” 55″ TV (normally $1500). Samsung’s “The Frame” sets itself apart from all other TVs with its seamless aesthetics. It features an “Art Mode” that showcases your choice of fine art sort of like a screen saver. There’s even a motion sensor so it won’t turn on unless someone is nearby. The bezel is thin and looks just like an art frame. Furthermore, you can customize the frame with different colors and/or textures to match the rest of the decor. No piece of art sits on a TV stand, so instead a slim wall mount is included. The TV itself sits flush to the wall so even when viewed from the side, the TV looks more like an art frame than a TV cabinet.
25% Off the Star Wars: The Black Series Darth Vader Helmet (Now Only $98.99)
What better time to flaunt your Darth Vader cosplay than Halloween? Today Amazon is offering the Hasbro Star Wars The Black Series Darth Vader Premium Electronic Helmet for only $98.99. That’s a 25% markdown from its original $132 MSRP and the first time we’ve seen this helmet priced under $100.
This officially licensed Darth Vader helmet was released in May of 2022 to coincide with the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi season one debut. This is a full-sized replica that’s designed to be worn. In addition to looking exactly right on the outside, the Darth Vader helmet features highly detailed interior as well. The neck piece, mask, and hood piece all connect magnetically, so you can inspect each section. It comes with a stand to make it easy to display. It also features the character’s iconic breathing sound effects.
PowerBlock Sport 24lb and 50lb Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair) Starting at Only $149.99
Currently Woot (owned by Amazon) is offering a hefty 35% discount on Power Block’s Sport series dumbell kits. These dumbbells are every bit as well built as the Bowflex SelectTech models. The 24-lb (per dumbbell) kit starts at only $149.99 and each dumbbell adjusts from 3 to 24 pounds in 3 pound increments. The 50-lb (per dumbbell) kit starts at $259.99 and each dumbbell adjusts from 5 to 50 pounds in 5 pound increments. Woot is owned by Amazon, so you can sign in with your Amazon Prime account to get free shipping.
Adata Premium 1TB M.2 SSD for PS5 for $89.99
This is the lowest price we’ve seen so far for a 1TB PS5-compatible SSD, and it even includes a heatspreader. The Adata Premium SSD boasts transfer speeds of up to 6,100MB/s, which is more than fast enough to surpass the PS5’s recommended minimum speed threshold of 5,500MB/s. Yes there are faster SSDs out there, but if your intention is to put this in your PS5, then that extra speed is worthless because you’re bottlenecked by the stock PS5 SSD. Better to save that money and put it to better use.
Alienware AW3423DW 34″ 3440×1400 Curved 0.1ms 175Hz G-SYNC Ultimate QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
The AW2323DW is a 34″ monitor with a 3440×1400 curved wide-format resolution. That’s more than enough pixel density for a 34″ monitor (4K is, in my opinion, overkill for a monitor under 40″) and the resolution is still forgiving enough that you don’t need a monstrously expensive video card to drive it. The QD-OLED panel boasts a 99.3% DCI-P3 color range and is factory calibrated with a Delta E less than 2. It is HDR True Black 400 certified with trademark OLED near-infinite contrast levels and an outstanding 1000nits of peak brightness. Gamers will definitely appreciate the blisteringly fast 0.1ms response time and 175Hz refresh rate. This was the first OLED gaming monitor to achieve G-SYNC “Ultimate” certification, since one of the requirements is the ability to push 1000nits in HDR, and traditional OLED displays simply aren’t bright enough. In terms of connectivity options, there are DisplayPort and HDMI ports as well as dual USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports.
QD-OLED technology was a big hit at this year’s CES and Samsung earned the “Best of Innovation 2022” award for it. The QD OLED panel uses quantum dot technology to more efficiently produce higher peak brightness levels compared to traditional OLED TVs without losing the color accuracy and range and wide viewing angles that OLEDs are known for. Although Samsung is the one that publicized the new technology, it is Alienware that debuted the first QD OLED monitor to the consumer market.
