It’s pretty hard to make it through the holidays without a gift card or two ending up in your wallet. They might not be the most exciting gift, but with post-holiday and New Year’s sales going on, they can be pretty handy this time of year.

Hopefully you got one from some place that can help you capitalize on some of the incredible gaming deals available right now, like the Microsoft Store. Dozens of Xbox One games are still marked down there for its countdown sale. If you got an Amazon gift card, you can find hundreds of comic titles from Marvel and DC marked down to $5 or less. The Vive Store is also offering a special discount on the HTC Vive VR headset, packing it with Fallout 4 and a $50 Steam gift card. Even if you didn’t get any gift cards, there are plenty of consoles, games, comics and accessories on sale as 2017 comes to a close.




  • Amazon is running a deal on Marvel comics right now. Digital copies of dozens of Marvel issues and volumes are being marked down to $7 and below. Some highlights include Star Wars books like Darth Vader: Volume One, The Thrawn Trilogy and Poe Dameron: Volume One. Old hits like The Infinity Gauntlet and newcomers like Ms. Marvel Volume One: No Normal are also on sale. And, if you feel so inclined, you can snag a copy of Secret Empire too and find out more about the whole Cap/Hydra thing.
  • Not to be outdone, a host of digital DC Comics are also deeply discounted on Amazon through January 1. If you’re looking for a little help parsing this huge sale, check out some of our Entertainment Editor Susana Polo’s top picks here.
