Xbox One Gears of War bundle + 40″ HDTV $470 w/ .EDU, more

Update (10/6 4:00pm): Amazon has now price matched Best Buy on the PlayStation 4 Destiny: The Taken King Limited Edition Bundle at $349.99 shipped (Reg. $400)

After what appeared to be a leaked official price drop coming for PS4 outed by Target, we are starting to see a number of retailers put the console on sale. Most notably, the Destiny Taken King Limited Edition Bundle is available for $349.99 shipped as part of Best Buy’s Deals of the Day today. That’s the best direct discount on this bundle we have seen. Alternatively, both Amazon and Target are offering this bundle with a $50 gift card for $399 shipped.

It includes everything you would expect along with the main game, a digital voucher for Destiny: The Taken King Digital Collector’s Edition Upgrade, three Legendary gear sets, an Exotic Scout Rifle, a new co-op Strike, and an extra competitive multiplayer map. This version of the game comes with everything that has been released for Destiny thus far.

Best Buy also has an interesting deal today for .EDU email address holders. You can grab the Xbox One Gears of War Ultimate Edition Bundle with a free copy of NBA 2K16 and a Insignia 40-inch Class LED 1080p HDTV for $469.98 shipped (full details on how to redeem the deal can be found on the listing page or below). Combining all of the items in the bundle together, that’s $210 under the total original price of these items and $130 below the current value. If you’re just looking for the console and aren’t interested in the TV, Amazon has this same bundle for $349 shipped right now.

It comes with the console itself, full-game digital download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Xbox One black wireless controller with a 3.5mm headset jack, early access to the Gears of War 4 Beta, and a physical copy of NBA 2K16. If you’re looking for more space, Amazon is still offering the Xbox One 1TB Madden NFL 16 Bundle with a free copy of NBA 2K16 for $399 shipped ($460 value), but this same bundle is now available at Microsoft Store for the same price with the freebie NBA 2K16 plus Assassin’s Creed Unity and Project Spark.

1Password is arguably one of the best password management system around, and certainly one of our favorite. Today, it is on sale at the Mac App Store for $34.99. At regular $50, this is matching the best price we have seen on the Mac App Store and within $7 of a limited promo code deal from over 3 months ago. We haven’t seen it go for less on the Mac App Store in over a year.

However, those with access to a .edu email address can get the Mac app for even less. Over on the official AgileBits shop, 1Password for Mac is just $27.99 using a .edu email address during checkout. That’s matching our previous limited promo price and the best we have seen in over a year. Student and faculty members are eligible for the discounted rate and should checkout using a .edu email. If you don’t have a .edu email, you can checkout with your regular email but you should have an active student/faculty ID available in case you’re contacted by AgileBits

Keep in mind, you will get updates faster purchasing the app directly from Agile, but there is no iCloud syncing like the Mac App Store version. Agile’s purchase does support Dropbox for cross-platforming syncing though (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone).
