This Monday is Presidents, Day and while this holiday is typically the domain of department stores and furniture retailers, there are a few sales to check out over the long weekend. Newegg is blowing out a bunch of PC components if you’re looking to upgrade your gaming rig. Lenovo and Microsoft are offering deep discounts on PCs and gaming accessories. And Best Buy is running a sale on all kinds of tech, including TVs and laptops.

If you’ve been patiently waiting for a Nintendo Switch price drop, you’re probably not going to see a true discount any time soon, but a new bundle will at least give you a little extra cash. Nintendo is throwing in a $35 eShop gift card with the Switch console which isn’t enough to cover a full first-party game, but it’ll take a good chunk out of the cost. Or you could grab a few indies.

Sometimes the weekend is just too short: join us on Twitter for all the latest deals throughout the week.

Editor’s picks

  • Before encountering real supernatural creatures, the Stranger Things kids fought the terrifying Demogorgon using only pencils, paper, and a few dice. This week Hasbro announced that it’s bringing Mike’s homebrew campaign to the masses in an special edition of the Dungeon & Dragons Starter Set. The licensed set is available for pre-order now and will ship on May 1.
  • Anthem will finally be released next week, after two demos and a hands-on preview gave us a taste of what’s to come in BioWare’s new action RPG. We broke down everything you need to know about the different editions of the game, the complicated release schedule, and pre-order bonuses.
  • Fortnite has infiltrated the real world yet again, with Nerf and water guns modeled after weapons from the battle royale game. The collection was announced back in October, and it’s now available for pre-order.
