The best-reviewed screen protector for the Nintendo Switch is $9 cheaper than the officially licensed version
This one isn’t officially licensed, but it is practically the only Nintendo Switch screen protector with a great user rating and decent number of reviews on Amazon. Not only is it $9 cheaper than the officially licensed screen protector, it is made of tempered glass (the official one is plastic). Tempered glass is much easier to install (since it can be reapplied) and is more scratch resistant. TechMatte offers free shipping on this item AND includes two screen protectors in case you mess up.

23% off Xbox Live Gold 1yr Subscription plus New Free Games for March
You’ll always need the Xbox Live Gold membership to play online, but there are other perks as well. You get discounts on select games every month. We always recommend getting the 1-year subscription since the cost per month is lower than the 1-month or 3-month subs.
Here are March’s free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers:
75% off Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass w/ Xbox Live Gold
An Xbox Live Gold membership is required to access these prices. The game itself was awarded Editors’ Choice and and rated 9.3/10. The Season Pass includes four stories “Blood Ties,” “Lara’s Nightmare,” Baby Yaga,” and “Cold Darkness Awakened”, online co-op endurance mode, new “Extreme Survivor” difficulty, 12 outfits, 7 weapons, and 35 expedition cards.
This Week’s Xbox Live Sale – The Witcher 3: Complete Edition for $25, Mega Man Legacy Collection for $6, Witcher 2 for $3, and more
An Xbox Live Gold membership is required to access these prices.
$200 price drop on the Oculus Rift + Touch VR Headset/Controller Bundle and Robo Recall – the first REAL mindblowing VR game – is FREE
There hasn’t been a better case to jump onto the VR bandwagon until now. For March, Oculus has docked $100 off the price of the headset and the controllers each. If you were to buy both together, you’d save $200.
What might actually be an even better reason to get the Oculus is that the newly released Robo Recall shooter is included for FREE. I’ve played Robo Recall and it is a REALLY good game that does an outstanding job of immersing you with the VR technology. If you don’t believe me, you can check out IGN’s 8.5/10 rated review.
The Klipsch Promedia 2.1 Computer Speakers have been around for 17 years and is still one of the best multimedia speakers in its price range
Use code “MEDIAPRO” to drop the price from $150 to $110. Klipsch is a well-known brand, and these Promedia speakers are one of their highest-praised and best-selling products of all time. I’ve owned two sets, the first set lasted through college and beyond, the second set is being used right now at my desk. For its small footprint, the Promedia packs a lot of power and bass with minimal distortion. It’s perfect for games and movies.
The cheapest 200GB Micro SDXC Card available for the Nintendo Switch
Right out of the box, the Nintendo Switch has 32GB of built-in memory. That’ll cover almost everyone for Day 1’s downloads, but if you’re planning on becoming a frequent eShopper and see yourself buying lots of digital-only releases like Shovel Knight, FAST RMX and Sonic Mania in the near future, you’ll want to look into upgrading your Switch’s storage by investing in a Micro SDXC Card. The Switch only has one memory card slot, so your best bet would be to get enough space to last the Switch’s lifetime.
Today’s Headphone Deal – Wireless Bluetooth Sport Earbuds for $7
Use code “98F6X7LX” to get 65% off these wireless sport headphones. At this price, you won’t be too upset over losing them or breaking them.
The Logitech M720 Triathlon Mouse can last up to 2 years on a single AAA battery and one-touch switch among 3 different computers
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the Logitech M720 mouse (previous low was about $42). The M720 has two connectivity options: RF and Bluetooth. When in Bluetooth mode, it can pair with up to 3 different Bluetooth devices simultaneously. This is perfect for people who have multiple computers at their workstation or for road warriors.
8lbs of Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein for only $8.13 per pound
Use code “OPTMAR17″ to drop the price from $85 to $65 for 8lbs of Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein. Available in two yummy flavors – Double Rich Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream.
20% off Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch (Releases 4/28)
It’s too bad this game isn’t released at the same time as the Switch console, but at least we have a definite release date and it’s next month! Mario Kart, along with Super Smash Pros and Mario Party, is Nintendo’s definitive party game. There are plenty of better looking, more realistic, and more unique racers out there, but Mario Kart is IMO the funnest.
Releases 3/21 – up to 27% off Mass Effect: Andromeda
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to release on March 21, but CDKeys is already busting out a 27% off discount on the PC version. For the console versions, both standard and deluxe editions are 20% off with Amazon Prime and you get the benefit of the Preorder Price Guarantee.
Humble’s New Monthly Bundle gives you The Witness (rated a perfect 10/10 “Masterpiece”) and $100+ worth of other games for only $12
This month’s highlighted game as part of the Humble Monthly Bundle is The Witness, which sells for $40 by itself on Steam. This is one of the rare games that was given a perfect 10/10 score on IGN. Let’s not forget though that there are plenty of other games included, and the total package retails for over $100.
New March Theme “Future Tech” Announced for Loot Gaming – 10% off

Playstation Firmware Update 4.5 is supposed to roll out today – compatibility with external hard drives
In anticipation of the update, we listed several hard drives that would pair well with the PS4. We specifically selected portable hard drives because of their size and the fact that they are completely USB bus powered. The exceptions are large-capacity (4TB and over) drives, where the price gap between portable drives and desktop drives is greater.
1TB Portable Hard Drives
2TB Portable Hard Drives
3TB Portable Hard Drives
4TB Portable Hard Drives
Desktop (non-portable) hard drives
This PS4 Slim Uncharted 4 Bundle deal should have expired already
The $249 Playstation 4 Slim discount was supposed to expire on the 24th (it’s back up to $300 almost everywhere else). If you’re still looking to pick up a console, i.e. for the new Horizon Zero Dawn game, you might want to snag the last of these deals before it’s too late.
Pick up some newest gen Xbox One Controllers at Black Friday prices
Slightly beats the price we saw on Black Friday. This latest generation model features sturdier construction with textured grips, double the range, and wireless Bluetooth capability, which allows it to be paired to a Bluetooth-compatible PC or tablet.
Releases 3/28 – Planet Earth II (Blu-ray) for $35, (4K Blu-ray) for $50
Releasing later this month, the well-reviewed nature documentary is one of the best examples of reference material (especially the 4K version). The footage from Planet Earth II is visually and technically a substantial upgrade from the original Planet Earth series and best of all, it’s narrated by David Attenborough. For Xbox One S owners with a 4K TV, this is a must-buy.
Light gaming needs, but plenty of power for everything else! Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Intel Core i7-6500U 15.6″ Win7 Pro Laptop w/ Radeon R5 M335 Graphics for $549
Use code: “AFFLT549″. Core i7 laptops under $550 are pretty rare. In this case, you’re getting a 15″ 1080p Full HD display, 6th generation Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory, 1TGB hard drive, Windows 7 Professional (with a Windows 10 Pro license included), and 1-year Dell warranty. The Radeon R5 M335 discrete graphics can run intensive games (like GTA V) at arond 30-35fps at the lowest settings and at a reduced 1366×768 resolution. It should be able to run most Steam indie games perfectly well.
Take $465 off the Workstation-Ready Dell Inspiron 15 Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core 15.6″ 4K 3840×2160 Touchscreen Laptop with 1TB HDD, 128GB SSD, and GeForce GTX 960M Graphics
Use code “XFFQ$2R6F92JX?” to take a whopping $465 off the retail price. This laptop doesn’t just do gaming, it’s powerful enough to serve as a great video or graphics editing workstation. The GeForce GTX 960M video card, although an older model, is still pretty good at playing games up to 1080p. Other notable specs include a 4K 3840×2160 touchscreen display, 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and dual storage drives (1TB hard drive + 128GB SSD).
4-Year Subscription to Car & Driver Magazine for $12
Use code: “49506” to drop the price from $47.88 to just $12, a savings of 75%. DiscountMags one-off magazine discounts usually only last for 2 days. This is for a 4-year 48-issue print subscription.
Save 33% off the Norelco 8900 Electric Wet/Dry Shaver and the Norelco Beard Trimmer 9100 as part of Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day
These deals will only last for today only. The Norelco shaver is a pretty sweet deal because you’re basically getting the SmartClean clean + charge base station for free. The beard trimmer is for you guys who want to keep your beard neat and trim instead of shaving it completely.
Get the Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Electric Toothbrush for under $20
If you have improper brushing technique, then an electric toothbrush might be better than a manual one. $20 is all it takes for you to have cleaner teeth and fewer visits to the dentist.
Memory Foam 12″ Mattresses starting at $149
For those people like myself who stay up late playing video games and still have to wake up early for work, every hour of sleep is precious. If you are willing to buy a comfortable, ergonomic chair, you should do the same with your mattress. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for a queen-sized foam mattress (and it’s not Ikea-thin either). Memory foam distributes your body weight across a large area to create that float-like sleep. In addition, the foam material is hypoallergenic, dust-mite resistant, and anti-microbial. It also flat packs in a surprisingly compact box so that it is easier and cheaper to ship and very simple to install.
Recommended for Gaming! Dell Inspiron 15 Intel Core i5-7300HQ Quad-Core 15.6″ 1080p Laptop with GeForce GTX 1050 Graphics for $800
The GTX 1050 graphics card is faster than a desktop-class AMD RX 460 and is DirectX 12 compatible. It should easily be able to run any game on the 1080p display. You also get a robust 8GB of memory and a 1TB hard drive. This is currently the lowest price for a GTX 1050 Ti laptop.
Gaming and VR Ready! Score this Alienware 13 6th Gen Intel Core i5 Quad-Core 13.3″ Full HD 1080p Gaming Laptop w/ GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics for $1100
Although this is a high price tag for laptops in general, it’s one of the lowest we’ve seen for a laptop equipped with a GTX 1060 video card, which is a slightly downclocked version of the desktop variant. The GTX 1060 will allow you to play just about any game currently available at high settings on the 1080p display. It is also the minimum video card I would personally recommend for someone thinking of pairing a Rift or Vive to a laptop.
The laptop also boasts a 13.3″ 1080p IPS panel display, 8GB of memory, 180GB solid state drive, and Killer 802.11AC WiFi networking.
