Today you can pick up a coveted RTX 3080 video card under $1000. There’s not many of these cards in stock, and we’re pretty sure that the price will go back up once the inventory has run out, so you don’t want to hesistate if you’re in the market for an RTX 3080 GPU at this moment. The next lowest RTX 3080 card on Amazon is closer to $1200. In other deal news, save 10% off a Nintendo eShop gift card, get 3 PS5, Xbox Series X, or Nintendo Switch games for the price of 2 at Amazon or Gamestop, score the best price we’ve seen on an LG C1 4K OLED TV, and more below.
MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for Only $999
This is easily the best price we’ve seen for an RTX 3080 video card since launch. At this price point, the RTX 3080 is a better value than the 3080 Ti, which costs at least $300 more at reputable vendors. The performance gap between the 3080 and 3080 Ti is about 3%, hardly noticeable. The 3080 is significantly more powerful than the previous generation’s champ: the 2080 SUPER. This is the card you want to get if you plan to game at 4K or 1440p with very high framerates. Because other RTX 3080 cards are still selling for at least $1200, it’s very unlikely that this model will stay in stock for very long.

48″ and 55″ LG C1 4K OLED Smart Gaming TVs
Supports 4K @ 120Hz for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for both the 48″ and 55″ LG C1 OLED TVs. If money isn’t an object, OLED TVs are considered the best TVs you can buy right now. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, they offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, wider color gamut, and super fast response times. They excel at both gaming and viewing 4K HDR content. In terms of general usability, they consume less power and they’re very thin and sit flusher against the wall. Amongst OLED TVs, the LG C1 is oft considered the flag bearer; it’s the one TV that all other OLED TVs are compared against. The LG OLED TV boasts several generations of optimizations under its belt and the latest C1 model is future proofed with technology like HDMI 2.1 (4K @ 120Hz), variable refresh rate, G-SYNC, the newest LG A9 Gen4 processor and a revamped webOS smart TV interface.

Dell XPS RTX 3060, 3060 Ti, and 3070 Gaming PCs
Dell XPS Intel Core i7-11700 RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD
Dell XPS Intel Core i7-11700 RTX 3060 Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD
Dell XPS Intel Core i7-11700 RTX 3070 Gaming PC with 32GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD
Dell is offering deals on XPS gaming PC equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor and your choice of RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, and RTX 3070 video cards. The RTX 30 series video cards are getting a bit easier to find, but most vendors (including reputable ones like Amazon) are still charging for hundreds of dollars over MSRP. If you’re building out an entire new gaming PC, in most cases you’ll still save a lot of money going the prebuilt route, especially since Dell is offering an unbeatable price for a solidly built, warrantied gaming rig.
New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
New MagSafe Model
Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
If you regret not picking the Airpods Pro up on Black Friday, here’s your chance to get it today at the lowest price we’ve seen this year. This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds. If isolation and sound quality are of utmost important to you, then it’s easily worth the upgrade over the AirPods 3.
Apple AirPods 2 for $99.99
Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds for under $100. These AirPods include a charging case that you plug in via USB Type-C, not the “wireless” charger that supports Qi charging. The Apple AirPods 3 earbuds currently cost $170; the main upgrade is the MagSafe support, and that definitely isn’t worth the $70 price premium.
Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch SE
The Series 7 is Apple’s latest and greatest watch. Today, both the 45mm and 41mm models are $70 off at Amazon (cheaper than Black Friday). 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. If you don’t need the health related features, you can save $100 and go with the Apple Watch SE instead. Despite the low price tag, this watch is still big on features, such as a large Retina OLED display, 2x faster CPU than the Series 3, heart rate monitoring, GPS, swimproof design, haptic feedback, and more.
MSI AMD Radeon RX 6800 GPU for Only $769.99
Here’s another powerful current gen video card that hasn’t seen anywhere near a digestible price in months. The RX 6800 is comparable to the RTX 3070 Ti. Since the least expensive RTX 3070 Ti we’ve found on Amazon costs $819.99, which is more than the price of this RX 6800, this deal represents a better value. The MSI Gaming X Trio boasts a beefy 3-slot triple-fan cooling system and a metal backplate.
Cooler Master NR200P Max Mini ITX Computer Case
Cooler Master NR200P MAX SFF Small Form Factor Mini-ITX Case with Custom 280mm AIO, 850W SFX Gold PSU, Triple-Slot GPU, Premium PCIe Gen4 Riser, Tempered Glass or Vented Panel Option
The NR200P MAX, might command a hefty price, but it’s the highly rated NR200P on steroids. For starters, despite the diminutive SFF form factor, there’s a pre-installed 280mm AIO liquid cooling system that’s powerful enough to cool even the newest Alder Lake processors (LGA 1700 bracket included). It can also fit big cards like the RTX 3080. Unlike most other PC cases with vertically oriented GPUs, there’s ample clearance between the video card and the side panel for sufficient airflow for the GPU. A massive 850W SFX 80PLUS Gold PSU is also included with custom length cables designed specifically for this case.
This case has been out of stock most of the time and has been very hard to get ahold of. Today, though, it’s available on Amazon with fast delivery. I highly recommend this case; I currently use it myself with an Intel Core i7-12700K Alder Lake and RTX 3080 FE setup without any hiccups whatsoever.
ASUS ROG RTX 3080 Gaming Desktop PC
ASUS ROG Intel Core i7-11700KF RTX 3080 Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 2TB HDD
One of the least expensive pre-built RTX 3080 equipped gaming PCs on the market has been discounted by an additional $300 today at Best Buy The price is quite a surprise because ASUS ROG gaming PCs are generally considered to be better built than your average prebuilt PC with quality components and a slick gaming aeshetic. This particular model is equipped with an unlocked 11th generation Intel Core i7-11700KF processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and a 2TB HDD for extra storage.
Gloomhaven: Jaw of the Lion Board Game
Ths is by far the lowest price ever on Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion (the previous price low being $35). This is a highly rated standalone co-op role playing board game from Cephalofair Games. It offers a similar gameplay experience to the original and far more daunting Gloomhaven game but for casual players; that means a simpler rule set, a more developed tutorial, and fewer overall pieces on the board.
Lenovo Legion Slim 7 15″ RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop
Lenovo Legion Slim 7 15″ AMD Ryzen 7 5800H RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
This is a good price for a Lenovo gaming laptop that boasts an AMD Ryzen 7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and an RTX 3060 GPU with 100W max TDP. The Legion Slim is a well built machine with an aluminum chassis that weighs in at only 4.18 pounds and measures only 0.7 inches at its thickest point.

It’s paired with an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It even has a Thunderbolt 4 port.
