Best Buy’s 4th of July sale is running all weekend and, alongside sales on smart home tech and major appliances, there are a couple of excellent gaming deals to check out.

One of Black Friday’s most popular deals was a Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 bundle, throwing in the hit web-slinging, crime-fighting game with a 1 TB console. Right now Best Buy is bringing that bundle back, albeit without the themed packaging.

Best Buy is also offering a flash deal on Red Dead Redemption 2. The game is on sale for $29.99, the first time we’ve seen it drop to half price since its release.

Over at Amazon, the retail giant is gearing up for Prime Day, the shopping holiday in July it invented a few years ago. Right now, Prime members can take advantage an early Prime Day deal on the Fire TV Recast, Amazon’s DVR box. Amazon is also discounting some essential gaming accessories, including HyperX headsets and, of course, microSD cards.

Finally, Comixology is offering Polygon an exclusive deal, $5 off a $15 purchase, over on our our @PolygonDeals Twitter account. Join us on Twitter for more deals throughout the week, including occasional exclusives like this one.
