Those looking to outfit their smartphone with some Star Wars flair are also in luck, as Otterbox is discounting all of its Symmetry cases by 10% and offering free shipping. Cases start at just over $40 and there’s a pretty wide selection of styles in the sale, but my personal favorite is this slick BB-8-themed option.
Not to be outdone, Disney is taking up 40% off its select Star Wars merchandise. Unlike ThinkGeek, this isn’t a sitewide sale, but there are still notable discounts on collectibles, clothing and more. Plus, all orders over $75 get free shipping with code SHIPMAGIC.
If collectibles are more your style, Funko has your back with 15% off its entire lineup of Star Wars figures and merchandise when applying code M4BU at checkout. Orders over $50 lock in free shipping as well, if you’re feeling compelled to splurge a little.
Those feeling the need to build something are in luck as well, as Bluefin is taking 25% off all of its Bandai Star Wars model kits. I’ve built a few of these myself over the past few months and love how detailed the kits are. In my book, they’re the way to go for display-worthy Star Wars collectibles, that is if you don’t mind a little assembly.
For Star Wars fans looking to get their game on, we’ve already rounded up a variety of PS4 and iOS/Mac discounts. There are some seriously tempting sales here, like LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens Deluxe Edition for $15.
