expiredCowboom 20% off sitewide: Apple Watch 38mm Milanese Loop Stainless Steel (pre-owned) $359 shipped (Orig. $649), more

Cowboom, a subsidiary of Best Buy, is taking 20% off sitewide with coupon code YESPLEASE2015. This promotion cannot be combined with items sold and shipped by Best Buy or the deal of the day. Shipping varies by item, and as always you’ll want to pay particularly close attention to listings for item condition.

This promo code works on Cowboom’s selection of pre-owned Apple Watch Stainless Steel models, with prices starting at $240 after the previously mentioned promo code. Our top pick is the 38mm Milanese Loop Stainless Steel model for $358.39 shipped (Orig. $649). If you don’t mind a pre-owned option, this deal delivers some of the lowest prices that we’ve seen. If you’re in the market for a Sport model, then you’ll want to take a look at Target’s Early Black Friday sale. However, Stainless Steel buyers may find enough difference in savings to justify the pre-owned models.

With your savings, grab a new band for your Apple Watch.

Nintendo announces official price drop coming for its 2DS handheld console

Nintendo has announced an official price drop coming to its already affordable 2DS handheld system. It currently holds a suggested retail price of $129.99, but come August 30th, the portable system will drop to $99.99 shipped. The 2DS, which plays almost the entire 3DS (and DS) library of games, will still ship with Mario Kart 7 when the new price drop hits at the end of the month.

We have seen the 2DS dip down to $100 and even lower a few times in the last year or so, plus a few sweet refurbished deals for even less. In fact, GameStop has it for under $100 in-store right now at some locations. However, with the official price drop we are likely to see prices come down even further from major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, GameStop and more, so it might be a smart idea to hold-off on purchasing until that happens.

For today’s best gaming deals head over to our daily roundups.

Amazon has quietly given its Prime members another valuable benefit: discounts on recently released and upcoming video games. Just yesterday we shared a couple of these deals in our daily apps/games roundup. At the time we thought they were just a couple of one-offs. But now we’ve come to learn that these types of deals may be here to discounts cover select video game consoles, accessories, and games that are sold by Amazon direct. There isn’t an easy way to view all the current offers. The only way to identify a video game item as having special Prime pricing is to look for the “Amazon Prime member Savings” blurb (shown above) on each item’s listing.


Even Prime members on a free trial or discounted Student membership qualify for the special pricing. However, you won’t know the exact discount amount until you reach the final page of checkout. That means the advertised price never changes even if the item is eligible for Prime savings. So you’ll need to add the item to your cart and proceed to checkout to see exactly how much the discount is. Here are the best current video game deals for Prime members we’ve found so far:

Following a successful launch in Japan and Australia last year, Nintendo today officially announced the New Nintendo 3DS XL for a North American release on February 13, 2015. The New 3DS XL has a faster processor than the original 3DS XL, integrated NFC support for Amiibo figurines, a second analog joystick with extra shoulder buttons, and fixes the original models’ 3-D display problems by using a new face-tracking camera.

Expect to see many closeout deals on the older models on 9to5Toys starting today. We’ll update this post with additional preorder links as they become available.
