Same 1 year Oculus warranty as buying new
Amazon has a brand new listing for a “renewed premium” Oculus Quest 2 VR headset. You get $50 off a brand new Oculus Quest and the same one-year warranty as a new purchase. The listing also states that the Quest 2 will ship starting February 15. The Oculus Quest 2 has been the best value for money in VR gaming so far. It’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than its competitors, it has a phenomenal following, it doesn’t need to be hooked up to a PC, and it has a massive library of games.

Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 Computer for $2199.99
Alienware Aurora R10 AMD Ryzen 9 5900 12 Core RTX 3080 Gaming PC with 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD
The RTX 3080 is far more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only (very slightly) more powerful cards, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900 processor, which is one of the best processors you can get right now, either for gaming or for workstation purposes. It has also been upgraded with liquid cooling. The rig comes ready out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to par with a sufficient power of 1000W.
Alienware m15 R5 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Redeem Code: 50OFF699
Alienware m15 R5 15″ AMD Ryzen 7 5800H RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
Use promotional code “50OFF699”
28% off $2,099.99
Dell is offering an Alienware m15 gaming laptop with an RTX 3070 video card for just $1499.99 after a $50 coupon code. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TGP rating of 125W, which is one of the fastest RTX 3070 video cards you’ll find in any gaming laptop. Most other gaming laptops RTX 3070 have a TGP rating of less than 100W, which results in lower performance. This is done deliberately to save energy and reduce heat. Alienware counteracts this by improving laptop cooling.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless Bluetooth headphones with active noise cancellation
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Active Noise Cancellation Listeners
The Bose QC35 are one of the best noise canceling headphones ever made. There are plenty of contenders these days, but at this price, the QC 35 II can’t be beat. That’s $170 cheaper than the current price of the Bose QC45 or Sony WH1000XM4.
New Apple AirPods Pro noise-canceling headphones
New MagSafe model
Apple AirPods Pro Noise Cancellation Listeners
If you regret not buying the Airpods Pro on Black Friday, here’s your chance to get it today for the same price. This is the latest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro are considered one of the best noise-canceling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. Noise cancellation is rated as even better than the Bose Quietcomfort due to the natural noise isolation design of the in-ear headphones. If isolation and sound quality are of utmost importance to you, it’s easily worth the upgrade over the AirPods 3.
Apple AirPods 2
Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 Wireless Headphones at the lowest price we’ve ever seen. These AirPods include a charging case that you plug in via USB Type-C, not the “wireless” charger that supports Qi charging. You can get it with a wireless charging case for an extra $50, but it’s definitely not worth it; few people actually use the wireless charging feature and inductive charging is inherently much slower.
$39.99 or less Nintendo Switch Games
Amazon has discounted several Nintendo Switch games by around 33% to 40%. Several of these games are rarely on sale, such as Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Skyward Sword HD, Pikmin 3 Deluxe and Bravely Default 2. Some of them are available in digital copy, others physical. It’s a great time to grow your Switch library, especially if you’re one of the many who bought a brand new Switch console during Black Friday or the holiday season.
New Version: XPG ATOM 1TB M.2 SSD with Heatsink
Includes heat sink
XPG ATOM 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD (up to 5000Mbps)
XPG has released another PS5-compatible SSD that’s even cheaper than the XPG S70 Blade, which was already the cheapest PS5-compatible SSD you can buy. While the S70 Blade has read speeds of 7400MB/s, the ATOM has read speeds of 5000MB/s. That’s still good enough to meet the demands of the PS5, and if your only intention is to use it in a PS5 console, you’ll barely notice the difference between the two. Like the S70 Blade, this SSD includes a thin aluminum heat sink.
