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.
