Check out the new hot daily deals for today, including 10% off a Nintendo Switch OLED console, new preorder listings for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom game and the new 2nd generation Apple AirPods Pro earbuds on Amazon, an Alienware RTX 3060 Ti gaming PC for only $1299.99, and up to $300 off select Arcade1Up cabinets at Walmart.
Nintendo Switch OLED for for $314.14
Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons for only $314.14. That's only $14 more than the cost of the Nintendo Switch non-OLED model. The Nintendo Switch OLED features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen display, an upgrade to the terrible OG kickstand, an ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons. If you have the budget to spring for this one, we definitely think it's worth the upgrade over the vanilla Switch.
Note that since this is shipped from Amazon Store UK and not Amazon, you'll be receiving the UK version of the Switch OLED. The Switch OLED is not region locked, so you'll be able to play US games without any hassle. However, you'll be receiving a UK plug. You'll need to get a UK to US plug adapter in order to charge your Switch here in the States.
Preorder The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for Nintendo Switch
The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild now has a title and a release date. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is out on May 12, 2023. That's a long ways off, but Amazon already has it up for preorder. BotW is one of the best Zelda games ever, and we expect Tears of the Kingdom to be another must-buy for the Nintendo Switch console. Amazon's Preorder Price Guarantee means that if the price ever drops below the amount you preordered for, Amazon will automatically honor the lower price.
Preorder the New Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen
The new 2nd generation version of the Apple AirPods Pro noise cancelling truly wireless earbuds is now up for preorder on Amazon with a ship date of September 23. It has been almost three years since the first gen Apple AirPods Pro was released, so there are plenty of upgrades under the hood, even if the new AirPods Pro looks cosmetically identical. The biggest upgrade is the new Apple H2 chip, which promises better audio quality and improved active noice cancellation. There's also a new feature called "Adaptive Transparency Mode". This mode actually amplifies the ambient sound so that you can hear your surroundings better. In-ear earbuds traditionally have very good noise suppression even without active noise cancellation enabled, so this is a great way for people to listen in on the outside world without having to remove the earbuds.

Dell is offering an Alienware Aurora R10 gaming PC equipped with a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU for only $1399.99. It's normally priced at $1959.99 but Dell has it on clearance right now for $660 off. This is a competitive price for a prebuilt Alienware gaming PC with a current gen RTX 30 series video card. The RTX 3060 Ti GPU is on par with the previous generation's RTX 2080 SUPER; it is the ideal card for 1080p gaming and has plenty of power to handle 1440p gaming as well. Because it's an RTX 30 series card, it's equipped with the latest NVIDIA features like DLSS and ray tracing. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800 CPU is a great all-around processor and won't bottleneck your gaming.
$300 Off Select Arcade1Up Gaming Cabinets (Terminator 2, The Simpsons, and Street Fighter)
Walmart is offering up to $300 off select Arcade1Up arcade gaming cabinets. These aren't the ones that nobody wants; these are some of Arcade1Up's most popular cabinets including the Terminator 2 cabinet complete with light guns, The Simpsons 4-player cabinet, and the Street Fighter "Big Blue" cabinet.

Apple Watch Series 7 From $300
Now that the Apple Watch Series 8 is available for preorder, the Apple Watch Series 7 is seeing an excellent discount. The larger 45mm GPS model has dropped to only $300, which is $130 cheaper than the equivalent Series 8 model. The Apple Watch Series 7's most obvious improvement from its predecessors is its larger screen. The Apple Watch Series 7 has a 20% larger screen and can now fit an entire touch-sensitive keyboard on the watch face itself. The display on the Apple Watch Series 7 is always-on, and is 20% brighter than the previous Apple Watch. In spite of increased brightness, the Series 7 boasts the same 18 hours of battery life, as well as 33% faster charging than the Series 6.
Preorder the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Core for Only $129.99
The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core wireless controller will be released on September 21. This 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.
EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU for $979.99
This is the first time we've seen the RTX 3090 sell for under $1000 on Amazon. This is one of the fastest cards out there, but if you're going to use this in a gaming rig, you'll want a 4K monitor to really benefit from its power. At 4K resolutions, it performs about 15%-20% better than an RTX 3080. This GPU isn't necessarily intended for gaming though; the RTX 3090 is an outstanding graphics workstation GPU not because of its processing power (which it has in spades), but because of the massive 24GB of GDDR6X RAM.
MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU for $1079.99
There's a big price drop on inarguably the most powerful consumer video card on the market right now. The EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU, which launched earlier in the year with an eye watering MSRP of $1999, has dropped a whoppping $920 today to $1079.99. The RTX 3090 Ti is roughly 20%-25% faster than the RTX 3080 and about 10% faster than the RTX 3090 at 4K resolutions and beyond. At under 4K resolutions, this card would be completely overkill.
Apple iPad 10.2" 64GB for $279.99
This is the lowest price we've seen for the newest Apple iPad (it was $299 on Amazon Prime Day). Apple's latest 10.2" iPad is a great option for school, work, or simply relaxing with your favorite movie, book, or streaming service. It features the new Apple A13 Bionic chip for fast CPU and GPU performance to tackle just about anything, and the large 10.2-inch Retina display ensures everything is bright and crisp during use. iPad also features both a front-facing camera for voice chat, and rear camera for taking photos and videos.
HP OMEN RTX 3070 Gaming PC for $1349.99
HP is offering an HP OMEN RTX 3070 gaming PC for only $1286.99 after a 10% off code "10GAMER2022". This is currently the best price we can find for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU and GeForce RTX 3070 GPU. The Alder Lake CPU is Intel's newest gen processor, and it is significantly more powerful than any of Intel's previous chips. It's also more powerful than AMD's latest Ryzen 7 6000 series CPUs.
HP Pavilion RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $649
You won't find an RTX 3060 equipped gaming PC for cheaper at the moment. This HP Pavilion gaming PC comes pre-installed with a 10th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.
