The Razer Kishi is one of the best mobile controllers out there, and you can get it for significantly less than it usually costs at Amazon and Best Buy. Normally $80, the version of the controller made for Android costs $55. The Kishi is compact, yet it can expand to fit most phones (excluding the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra). It features passthrough USB-C charging, and its overall design looks like a Nintendo Switch, but people who are used to gaming on an Xbox Series X controller should feel at home with the feel and arrangement of the Kishi’s buttons, sticks and triggers.

Razer’s Switch-like controller is designed for mobile gaming and Microsoft’s xCloud gaming service.

We saw a few fire sales on Microsoft’s Surface Duo folding Android phone last month, and Woot is back with another one — just for AT&T subscribers, though. You can get a new Surface Duo with 128GB of storage for $550 or double the storage for $620. Either one comes with a one-year warranty from Microsoft.

$398

The Microsoft Surface Duo is the company’s first Android phone, and it features two full-size screens attached by a 360-degree hinge.

Woot also has the best deal yet on Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro truly wireless earbuds. Originally $200, you can get them new for $140 today only. This beats the previous best deal by $10. Woot is offering a 90-day warranty on these, despite them being in new condition. We suspect that these might be the international version instead of the North American version, meaning that they won’t be covered by Samsung in the US in case of manufacturer defects following 90 days of coverage at Woot.

$120

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro have a blend of tech found in the Buds Plus and Buds Live, with excellent sound quality.

The latest pre-Prime Day deal that Amazon is running is a TV promo that loops in Toshiba’s 50-inch 4K Fire TV Edition model that has Dolby Vision HDR. It’s one of the best Fire TV Edition models you can buy, and through Saturday, it’s $310 for Prime members instead of $430. In case you aren’t aware, Fire TV Edition means that Amazon’s streaming software is built into the TV, so you can get right to streaming Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and more shortly after you turn it on.

$310

An affordable, 4K LED TV with built-in Fire TV tech. This model sticks out from the bunch of other Fire TV Edition models with support for Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10.

If you have a significantly bigger budget for a 4K TV, consider checking out Amazon and Best Buy’s deals on Sony 4K TVs and LG OLED TVs (you’ll get 10 percent back on one of these TVs if you purchase at Amazon with a Prime credit card). The 55-inch LG A1 OLED is $200 off at $1,400, and it comes close to having feature parity with more expensive models in LG’s lineup. Keep in mind that it has one fewer HDMI port (three versus four) and its processor is from a previous generation of OLEDs. Notably, this OLED has a 60Hz refresh rate, so it won’t be ideal for gaming at fast refresh rates like pricier OLEDs are, though it’ll still look amazing on this display.

$647

LG’s entry-level OLED TV, the A1, has an auto low-latency mode and offers support for both Alexa and Google Assistant. Unlike pricier OLEDs, however, it lacks a fast refresh rate.

If you do want an OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate and support for AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync, consider stepping up to the LG C1 OLED. The 48-inch model costs the same as the 55-inch A1 above at $1,400. The 55-inch model is $1,600, and we’ve included links for that model below. Retailer BuyDig is honoring this deal, as well, but it includes a $50 Visa gift card and a complimentary four-year accidental warranty with purchase.

LG C1 OLED (65-inch)

$250028% off
$1797

LG’s C1 OLED starts with a 48-inch model, going up to 83 inches. All sizes of this OLED feature a 120Hz refresh rate, FreeSync and G-Sync support, and a fast processor.

There’s a $10 discount happening on the physical version of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster for the Nintendo Switch. You can find the game available with this small price cut at Amazon, costing $40 instead of $50.
