Today’s daily deals include the elusive GeForce RTX 4090 video card sold at or close to MSRP, new price drops on Alienware Aurora R15 RTX 4080 and 4090 gaming PCs, the PS5-compatible WD Black 1TB SSD for under $100, the space-saving Bowflex SelectTech adjustable dumbbells, and more.
PlayStation 5 Finally In Stock on Amazon
Amazon is finally letting you buy a PS5 console without an invite. The PS5 God of War Bundle (Disc Edition) is currently the only model available without requiring an invitation. That means Amazon now joins the ranks of Walmart, Best Buy, and Target who have already had PS5 consoles in stock. For Amazon Prime cardholders, that’s great news because now you can get 5% Amazon cashback on this deal.
GeForce RTX 4090 Starting at $1649.99
Here are two RTX 4090s at or close to MSRP! The stock RTX 4090 normally sells for $1599.99. However, both the MSI Gaming X Trio and the PNY XLR8 come overclocked right out of the box, which accounts for the small surcharge. Everybody knows by now that the RTX 4090 is the undisputed king of the hill. It’s significantly more powerful than any other NVIDIA card out there. It’s laughably more powerful than any AMD card, thanks to its support for DLSS 3.0 and it’s marvelous domination of ray tracing tech.
Alienware Aurora R15 i7 Raptor Lake RTX 4090 Gaming PC for $3510 (or RTX 4080 for $3087)
with Liquid Cooling and 1350W Power Supply
Dell is offering its latest GeForce RTX 4090 equipped gaming PC, the Alienware Aurora R15, for $3510.35 today after stackable coupon codes “SAVE10” and “ARMMPPS“. Alternatively, you can get the RTX 4080 for $3086.99 after the same code. The RTX 40 series video cards are only half of the story; the Alienware Aurora R15 is also equipped with the new 13th generation Intel Core i7-13700KF 16-core Raptor Lake CPU.
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells Single for $175, Buy Two Singles (Pair) for $350
Right now if you were to puy a pair of Bowflex SelectTech 552 dumbbells from Amazon, it would cost you $429. Instead buy two of the singles for $175 each and then you’ll only pay $350. If there’s any one piece of exercise equipment you should decide on, free weights would be a very good investment. These super popular dumbbells haven’t been discounted for months. Investing in some exercise equipment at home means there’s less of a reason to take the risk (and the extra cost) of going to your local gym. Because the Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells are adjustable, you don’t need a rack of individual weights lying around. Each dumbbell can be adjusted from 2.5 pounds all the way to 52.5 pounds.
Kasa Smart Plug Mini with Energy Monitoring for $12.99 (or Buy 4 for $9.30 Each)
Amazon is offering the Kasa Smart Plug Mini with Energy Monitoring for only $12.99. That’s a hefty 35% price drop from its $20 MSRP. This is also lower than what we saw on Black Friday, barring deals that involved buying something else and getting this smart plug for a discount. If you want even more savings, pick up the 4-pack for only $37.21 after you clip the $5 coupon. That averages out to $9.30 per smart plug and they also support energy monitoring.
WD Black SN850X 1TB PS5 SSD for $94.99
For one day only, Best Buy has the newest WD Black Series SN850X 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSD for the best price we’ve seen. The SN850X is the successor to the SN850 SSD. It has newer flash chips (BiCS5 vs BiCS4) and an updated firmware, which combined offer improved sequential and random read/write speeds. For PC gamers, there’s also an updated Game Mode 2.0 utility that’s designed to tune the SSD for better performance during gaming sessions.
Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Core for $116
The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core wireless controller is fundamentally the same controller as the older generation Xbox Elite Series 2 controller at a much lower MSRP. The Elite Series 2 Core controller features pro gaming features like adjustable-tension thumbsticks, wrap-around rubberized grip, and shorter hair trigger locks. Microsoft was able to significantly cut the price by removing some of the accessories that the original Elite controller came with. Specifically, the Elite Series 2 Core does not come with the extra paddles, thumbsticks, and d-pad. These accessories are still compatible with the Elite Series 2 Core, but if you want to get them, you’d have to buy them separately.
Dell G15 15″ RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop for $970.19
Dell is offering the Dell G15 15″ Intel Core i7-12700 RTX 3060 gaming laptop for only $970.19 after new stackable coupon codes “SAVE10” and “ARMMPPS“. This is a great deal for a laptop equipped with a capable RTX 30 series video card as well as the Intel Core i7 CPU. The G15 is Dell’s gaming-focused, value-minded series of laptops. They cost much less than a comparable Alienware laptop, but borrow some of the same internal features like the dual-fan active cooling system, Alienware’s Command Center software for tweaking gaming settings and optimizing performance, and choice of gaming oriented GPUs.
Dell G15 15″ QHD Intel Core i9 RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop for Only $1411.99
Dell is offering a Dell G15 15″ gaming laptop with Intel Core i9 CPU and RTX 3070 Ti GPU for only $1411.99 after $250 in instant savings and stackable coupon codes “SAVE10” and “ARMMPPS“. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti provides plenty of muscle on the GPU front. It’s close to the most powerful mobile GPU available (only a touch slower than the RTX 3080). Compared to desktop variants, it’s roughly comparable to the RTX 3060. You’ll need this kind of power to push maximum frame rates on the display’s QHD display.
2022 Apple iPad Air (10.9″, Wi-Fi, 64GB) for $499.99
Back down to the best price we saw during Black Friday. The 2022 Apple iPad Air was released in March of 2022 with a $599 MSRP. It represents a healthy upgrade to the 10.2-inch iPad in nearly all aspects. It boasts a larger screen size (10.9″ vs 10.2″) with both True Tone and P3 wide color. It has the same powerful Apple M1 chip found in the 2021 iPad Pro. Despite the more powerful hardware, the iPad Air is roughly the same size as the 10.2-inch iPad (thanks to the slimmer bezel) and weighs a bit less as well. Charging is done through the universal USB Type-C connector.
Hisense R6 65″ 4K QLED Google TV for $378
The Hisense R6 is essentially the same TV as the A6 but uses the Roku smart TV interface instead of Google TV. Unlike the U6 which uses a VA panel, the R6 uses an IPS panel, which offers wider viewing angles. At this price it’s also over $100 cheaper than a 65″ U6 TV.
NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Pro for $179.99
The NVIDIA Shield Android TV Pro is still founded on the same hardware from when it was released a few years ago, but the software has been updated to Android 11 OS. The Shield Pro features an NVIDA Tegra X1 CPU (the same processor found in the Nintendo Switch), 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in storage. In terms of performance and versatility, the Shield Pro blows the Roku, Apple TV, Fire Stick, Chromecast, and just about every other media player out of the water. It’s capable of handling 4K video with Dolby Vision HDR from all of your favorite streaming apps. It also supports Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital Plus.
The Shield Pro is also one of the only devices that supports GeForce Now, which allows you to stream your PC games to your TV without having to own a gaming PC. A remote PC does all the processing work for you, and all you need is a fast internet connection. It even has a built-in Plex server so you can organize all of your digital media in one centralized location.

Hisense U6H 75″ 4K QLED Google TV for $649.99
Amazon currently has the 2022 Hisense U6H 75″ 4K QLED Google TV for only $649.99. This was one of the best selling TVs during Black Friday. The Hisense U6H is a 2022 TV model that offers a lot of features for a 65″ TV at the $500 price point. This TV boasts a quantum dot display (QLED) with a full-array LED backlit panel with local area dimming and wide color gamut (ULED). It also has a high peak brightness of 600nits, which means this is a solid TV choice for brightly lit rooms with poor light control. Although the U6H doesn’t have a 120Hz panel, it is still a good choice for a gaming TV because it has variable refresh rate and a very low response time.
$500 off Epson Home Cinema 5050UB 4K Projector
The Epson 5050UB is, in my opinion, the best projector you’ll find for under $3K. In fact, it’s close to the best projector you’ll find under $4K. The 5050UB was released way back in 2019, but up until now no 4K projector in its price range has been able to match its incredible black levels and contrast ratio. In a properly light-controlled room, it’s indistinguishable from a premium TV. The 2-way shifted 4K resolution is also really good… not quite native 4K but a big step up in sharpness compared to 1080p. It’s also flexible in terms of setup thanks to its generous horizontal and vertical motorized lens shift. It’s rarely discounted (in fact early last year it was hard to even find one in stock) so snap this one up quick.
Alienware m15 R5 Intel Core i9-12900H RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop for $1545.45
For a limited time, Dell is offering the 2022 Alienware m15 R7 15″ QHD Intel Core i7-12700H Alder Lake gaming laptop with RTX 3070 Ti video card for only $1545.45 after $450 in instant savings and stackable coupon codes “IGN5” and “ARMMPPS“. This is easily the most powerful Alienware gaming laptop you’ll currently find for under $2K. The Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU is one of the fastest processors you’ll find in any laptop and a significant upgrade from previous i7 CPUs. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti provides plenty of muscle on the GPU front, which you’ll need to run games at 60+fps on the 1440p display.
HYTE Revolt 3 SFF Premium ITX PC Case with 700W Gold SFX Power Supply for $129.99
This is a phenomenal price for one of the best ITX cases around. It retails for $250 and we’ve seen it for just under $200, but never this cheap. Note that it comes with a 700W 80PLUS Gold SFX power supply, which itself would cost you a pretty penny. Despite its small 18L size, it can fit suprisingly beefy components and cooling, like a 280mm radiator and video cards up to 335mm long. There are several people who have installed an RTX 3080 GPU in this little thing.
