Daily Deals on Holiday Gifts: Nintendo Switch OLED, Bowflex SelectTech Dumbbells, Apple Gift Card, Xbox Series S, and More – IGN

There’s less than a week left before Christmas. If you want to get your holiday gift idea in time before December 25, you better starting ordering soon. Some guaranteed shipping cutoffs have already passed, but not all. For example, Amazon Prime members can still get many items before December 25 if they choose Prime Shipping, but it depends on the item and it’s availability. Of course, you can also go the gift card route and bypass the hassle completely. We’ve listed several great gift ideas that may or may not arrive by December 25. Hopefully it’s not the end of the world if your gift is late. Better late than never.

Nintendo Switch OLED Back in Stock

The newest Nintendo Switch OLED model has been incredibly difficult to find throughout the holiday season. It’s back today, but only on Amazon, and only for a very limited time. This Switch features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen display, an upgrade to the terrible OG kickstand, an ethernet port on the docking station, and of course new Joy-Con colors. If you’re planning to buy one, don’t hesitate!

Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair)

Best Buy is offering this very popular Black Friday deal to Best Buy members. Don’t worry, signing up is absolutely free. If there’s any one piece of exercise equipment you should decide on, free weights would be a very good investment. These super popular dumbbells haven’t been discounted for months. Investing in some exercise equipment at home means there’s less of a reason to take the risk (and the extra cost) of going to your local gym. Because the Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells are adjustable, you don’t need a rack of individual weights lying around. Each dumbbell can be adjusted from 2.5 pounds all the way to 52.5 pounds.

Sign up for AT&T Fiber Gigabit Internet for $60/Month and Get a Bonus $250 Gift Card, Free HBO Max

AT&T Fiber offers internet speeds that’s faster than the highest tier cable internet at a lower price. It’s similar to Verizon FIOS except that it’s more widely available. Get up to gigabit speeds for $60/month for the first 12 months and $80 thereafter. I currently subscribe to this service in the San Francisco area and I’m averaging 900Mbps downstream, 800Mbps upstream at the modem. Previously I had been signed up for the highest tier Comcast Xfinity cable internet and I was getting around 300Mbps downstream, 30Mbps upstream. Whereas I had paid about $95/mo with taxes and fees from Comcast, I’m currently only paying $60/mo (taxes and fees are already rolled into that cost) with AT&T. Sign up online and you’ll get a bonus $250 rewards card and a free 1-year HBO Max subscription so you can watch The Matrix Resurrections when it comes out this week.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K HDR

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K HDR

The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K normally goes for $49.99, but it drops to 50% off only twice a year: on Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday. It’s actually no longer available at this price directly from Amazon, but you can pick it up at Verizon (you don’t need to be a Verizon member to get it). This is the least expensive 4K HDR capable smart TV stick you can buy. The advantage of using a Smart TV USB dongle instead of the built-in interface on your TV is that you can easily move your saved profiles, logins, and passwords from TV to TV.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Switch

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Expansion Pass Bundle

Nintendo Switch

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Expansion Pass Bundle

Does this game really need any introduction? We gave it a 10/10 Masterpiece score here at IGN and even now it’s still considered one of the very best games to grace the Switch console. It’s normally $59.99 and although we’ve seen it for a bit less than this, you shouldn’t expect the price to come down more anytime soon. The game is easily worth it at this price.

New Price Drop: Razer Iskur Gaming Chair

Razer Iskur Gaming Chair

The price of the Razer Iskur chair has dropped by $50 compared to Black Friday! This is only for the synthetic leather models, not the fabric model. The Razer Iskur commands a high price tag for a reason; it’s well-engineered with plenty of high quality materials and usable features. It’s upholstered in multi-layered synthetic leather that’s more durable than PU leather. There’s also plenty of high density foam cushioning for gaming marathons. The reticulating lumbar adjustment works well and looks really slick. It also boasts 4D armrests and the nicest rolling casters we’ve experienced.

It also happens to be the lowest priced PS5-compatible 1TB SSD with heatsink available. In fact, it’s even less expensive than most compatible SSDs without heatsink. The S70 Blade boasts transfer rates up to 7,400 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface. It includes a PS5-compatible low-profile aluminum heatsink. It’s not beefy, but it works and it fits.

Apple Watch Series 7 41mm GPS Smart Watch

Apple Watch Series 7 GPS 41mm Smart Watch

It’s nice to see Amazon’s latest and greatest watch, released less than 2 months ago, discounted during the holiday season. There’s a now $50 discount, make it cheaper than Black Friday’s price. The biggest upgrade the Series 7 has over the Series 6 is the display. It has the same always-on Retina display, but it’s 20% bigger and features a more crack-resistant front crystal screen. It also adds on even more health-related features, like measuring your blood oxygen or taking an ECG.

Newest Apple AirPods for $139.99

Apple AirPods (3nd Gen)

The 3rd gen Apple AirPods came out in late 2021 at an MSRP of $179. Today there’s a $40 price drop, which is bigger than what we saw on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. The 3rd gen Apple AirPods improves upon the 2nd gen with a longer battery life, (arguably) better sound, IPX4-rating for sweat resistance, and a MagSafe compatible wireless charging case.

Samsung Odyssey G9 49″ 5120×1440 Curved 1ms 240Hz G-SYNC QLED Gaming Monitor

The Samsung Odyssey G9 is one of the largest, most immersive gaming monitors on the market. It was a huge hit last Black Friday, and this time around it’s even less expensive than ever. Today Amazon is offering the monitor for $999.99, this first time it’s ever hit the $1K price point. The Odyssey G9 boasts a massive 49″ 5120×1440 curved display with a fast 1ms response time, 240Hz refresh rate, and G-SYNC compatibility.

This set includes 4K Ultra HD and digital versions of the LotR trilogy, including both theatrical and extended editions.

Klipsch Promedia 2.1ch Computer Speakers

Klipsch Promedia 2.1 THX Computer Speakers

The Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers have been around for over 2 decades, but it’s still considered one of the best computer speakers under $200. It’s normally listed for $139.99, but today Walmart has it for only $84, a 40% savings. This THX-certified speaker set includes two satellite speakers with 3/4″ soft dome tweeter with 3” midrange drivers and a 6.5″ 200W powered subwoofer for some intense bass.

Dell XPS RTX 3070 Gaming PC

Dell is offering over $350 off an XPS gaming PC with some pretty outstanding specs. In addition to the RTX 3070 video card (which performs better than the RTX 2080 SUPER), it’s also equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, a whopping 32GB of RAM, and dual SSD and hard drive storage. It’s pretty much good to go right out of the box.

14% off $1,809.98

Alternative go with an RTX 3060 Ti equipped PC and save $250. Besides the video card, the only difference between the two configs is the amount of RAM: this config is equipped with 16GB compared the 32GB for the pricier config. If you’re planning to play games at 1080p, the RTX 3070 is probably overkill. The RTX 3060 Ti handles that resolution almost as well, even at frame rates of up to 144Hz. It’s about as powerful as the previous generation’s RTX 2080 SUPER. It can definitely handle 1440p gaming as well, although if you want to push 100+ fps, the RTX 3070 is still the better option.

The KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Holiday Firelog

Walmart Exclusive

KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Holiday Firelog

For the fourth year in a row, the KFC Firelog is back for the holiday season. If you want your house to smell like Colonel Sanders’ fried chicken without actually eating fried chicken (or while eating fried chicken?), then this log is for you! KFC does explicity state some warnings that you should heed: (1) may result in a craving for fried chicken, (2) please do not attempt to eat it, and (3) please do not put your face directly into the fire in attempt to smell fried chicken. Believe it or not, this isn’t a gag; it’s an actual, legitimate product endorsed by KFC themselves and Enviro-Log is the official manufacturer.

Masterbuilt Gravity Series 800 Charcoal Smoker

Masterbuilt Gravity Series 800 Digital Charcoal Smoker

The Masterbuilt 800 has everything you’d want in an easy-to-use smoker. It takes regular charcoal briquette which, in my opinion, is superior in flavor to electric and pellet smokers. You drop the charcoal into a separate gravity-fed chute, and the ash drops down to a pan below for super easy cleanup. Heat convection is accomplished with a digitally controlled fan; this allows for easier and more precise temperature control than a traditional charcoal smoker.

Everyday Essentials Multifunctional Workout Station

Everyday Essentials Multifunctional Workout Station

Start working on your New Years resolution early. This workout station normally sells for $200, but today there’s a pretty substantial 45% discount and you get free shipping on this (obviously very heavy) order. This workout station includes an adjustable Olympic workout bench with squat rack, leg extension, preacher curl, and weight storage.

LEGO Marvel Infinity Gauntlet

LEGO Marvel Infinity Gauntlet 76191 590-Piece Kit

This is one of the coolest LEGO Marvel sets around. The price drops today from $70 to $55.99. That brings it just under the 10-cent-per-brick threshold that makes this set a good deal. For a LEGO collector, one of the biggest draws of this set is the sheer number of gold bricks… gold is harder to amass than than the standard LEGO colors. For the Marvel fan, this gauntlet features articulating fingers, appropriately colored infinity stones, and of course a fine base to mount it on.

Preorder the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Anniversary 8-Film Collector’s Edition (4K UHD + Blu-ray)

Preorder the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Anniversary 8-Film Collector’s Edition (4K UHD + Blu-ray)

This is the first discount we’ve seen for the Harry Potter Collector’s Edition, and it even ships before December 25. This set includes a total of 17 discs, which features every Harry Potter film in both 4K UHD and Blu-ray. You also get plenty of extras like a Hogwarts Express Ticket replica, a 32-page anniversary booklet, and The Harry Potter Magical Movie Mode on its own Blu-ray disc. Everything is packaged in a finely detailed Hogwarts Express train made of heavy paper board. Amazon’s preorder price guarantee means that if the price ever drops before the set is released, Amazon will adjust your price to the lowest available. There’s no limit to how often this can happen.

Pandemic Legacy Season 1 Blue Edition

Pandemic Legacy Season 1 Blue Edition Board Game

Pandemic Legacy Season 1 is an outstanding board game. At BoardGameGeek, it topped the chart when it was released, and has sat at #2 ever since (Gloomhaven being the only board game that trumped it). Pandemic Legacy is essentially Pandemic with a huge non-linear cooperative campaign attached to it. Most people agree that it’s a significant upgrade over the original Pandemic. The game is played across 12-24 sessions lasting about 1-2 hours each, and because of the branching nature, no two games will be the same. You’ll notice that there are two variants of the game: Blue and Red editions. They are the exact same game with different box art. they are made so that some avid gamers can play the game simultaneously with two different groups; the colors make it easier to not confuse the two.

Lenovo Smart Clock and Smart LED Bulb

Lenovo Smart Clock with Bonus Smart LED Bulb

This popular deal retails for about $70, but it dropped to $39 on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Somehow, it’s way cheaper now; you can get it for under $30. The Lenovo Smart Clock functions much like the Amazon Echo Show. In addition to displaying time, it can display Google photos, schedule calendar reminders, control smart home devices, play music, and answer questions via Google. To top it off, you get a free smart LED light bulb.
