Amazon is giving its daily deals section a holiday-themed makeover for the first two weeks of December, with a “12 Days of Deals” promotion that started Sunday. Instead of a steady progression of various birds, Amazon will highlight one-day-only sales in a different gift category each day, including toys (Dec. 4) and electronics (Dec. 10). Today, Dec. 3, the focus is on all things gaming.
Some of the discounts in today’s gaming-themed sale match Black Friday pricing, most notably the $20 discount on Marvel’s Spider-Man. Tabletop gamers can save up to 30 percent off best-selling strategy games like Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate, King of Tokyo, and Matt Leacock’s new co-op game, Forbidden Sky (along with the two other games in that series, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert). Aspiring streamers or podcasters may want to pick up the popular Blue Yeti microphone, which comes bundled with a free PC download of Assassin’s Creed Origins or Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Also discounted are several gaming PCs and accessories, including the excellent SteelSeries Arctis 3 wired headphones.
Amazon’s second day of deals ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday, Dec. 3. Our favorite deals from today’s sale are listed below.
