BlackVue DR650S-2CH HD Car Dashcam (Front, Rear Cameras) for $249
$100 cheaper than everyone else! BlackVue is one of the most recommended dashcam brands if you were to get it installed at a professional body shop. I own this exact model and recommend it (although I’ve never tried other aftermarket options). It outputs great video quality and has already proven its value the single time I got in an accident and had proof that I wasn’t at fault.

Amazon Gamescom Sale – Extra 20% off Select PC Gaming Peripherals

Seagate FireCuda Gaming 2TB Hybrid Hard Drive (SSHD) for $85
If you want to increase capacity AND performance for your PS4,this hybrid drive is inarguably the best bang for the buck. Not only do you get 2x-4x the storage, you also get noticeable decreases in game loading times. SSDs perform slightly faster, but how much would a 2TB SSD cost???

This Week’s Popular Deals
30% off Graphic Tees at TeePublic – $20 Tees for $14
This is slightly better than the 25% coupon code I posted last week. For smaller orders like single-item t-shirts and hoodies, you basically save on the shipping cost (starts at $7). When you start piling on more items, you start saving beyond shipping . Some of these indie artist-submitted designs are really outstanding and there are tons of video game and movie themed apparel. Definitely worth it to check out their inventory.
Ecovacs Deebot M80 Pro Robotic Vacuum Cleaner & Mop for $180
This is for people who don’t want to shell out big bucks for a Roomba and want the additional mopping functionality (Roombas only vacuum). The reviews are actually pretty good, with 255 Amazon buyers rating it 84%.
Cowin E-7 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones for $38
The Cowins are massively popular with the IGN audience. I’ve bought one myself out of curiosity and my wife now uses it all the time for work. I’ve had IGN staff buy one and then buy more for their friends and family. For $37 you’re getting a headphone with 40mm large aperture drivers, wireless Bluetooth connectivity, active (not passive) noise cancellation, 30hrs of battery life, and built-in mic.
Rick and Morty Total Rickall Cooperative Card Game for $9.68
With Season 3 well underway, it’s time to indulge in all things Rick and Morty. This card game has super reviews and is close to the lowest price ever. This is a coop game so you’ll be making friends, not enemies.

George Foreman 2-Serving Classic Plate Grill for $11.65
Under $12 for a George Foreman grill? I’m on board! Ratings are not bad either with 2,000 reviews on Amazon giving it an 80% average rating. Like all George Foreman grills, this one has a non-stick surface for easy cleanup.
Naipo Shiatsu Kneading Shoulder Massager with Heat for $37

If you have an Xbox Live Gold membership, you’ll also get great weekly deals on games at the Xbox Store. Get additional savings on these games:
$10 Online Game Design and Development Courses at Udemy
This updated code (automatically applied) should work for everyone. For only $10 per course, you can train yourself in tools, software, and programming languages specific to the gaming industry. I and other people at IGN (and Ziff) have used Udemy and would easily recommend one of these hugely informative courses for the same cost as a Switch screen protector.
Nintendo Switch Bundles from $400 at Gamestop
The Switch alone still sells for up to $400 from scalpers on eBay. For the same price, you might as well get some extra stuff including one or two must-have titles. Bundles also prevent scalpers from buying additional stock (they can’t really make money off bundles).
The Best USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Deals
For storage that you can carry around, portable hard drives are easily the best value. They are small enough to fit in a pocket and yet hold boast way more capacity per dollar than USB flash drives. Best of all, there’s no need to lug around an extra power brick. Compatible with PS4 and Xbox One.
Oculus Rift VR Headset + Touch Controllers for $399
Update: From 8/7, now ships in new packaging. This deal is so good that I had to get one myself. IMO this is easily the best value among the big three VR headsets. The combination sold for $600 just a few months ago. Also includes 7 free titles including Epic Games’ incredible Robo Recall. This price adjustment is only temporary – it’s expected to go back up in August.
Zinus Memory Foam Mattresses for sale on Amazon
It’s not my fault that IGN loves memory foam mattress deals. I own this one for one of my kids. I’ve been testing it myself for the past few months and would easily recommend it. The top is super plush and you get that nice sinking feeling, but the base is firm enough that I have not had anything but a good night’s rest. And the price is pretty insane.

The Best PC Deals
Alienware Aurora Intel i5 Quad-Core GeForce GTX 1060 Desktop $850
Pretty uncommon to find an Alienware desktop for under $1K. Specs include the newest gen Intel Core i5-7400 Quad-Core Kaby Lake processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics.
Alienware Aurora Intel i7 Quad-Core GeForce GTX 1070 Desktop $1200

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 15″ IPS Quad-Core GTX 1050 Ti Laptop for $850
This particular model has two very welcome upgrades compared to other Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop deals that I find. (1) This laptop comes equipped with a great looking 15″ 1080p IPS panel display. The default display is a TN panel. IPS panels give you a much wider viewing angle and better color uniformity and reproduction. (2) This laptop upgrades the default GTX 1050 video card to a GTX 1050 Ti, which performs about 15%-20% faster. Other specs include the latest gen Intel Core i5-7300HQ quad-core processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD.
