Whether you have a Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X, or another platform, you can load up on games this weekend with GameStop’s latest promo. If you add three preowned games to your cart, you’ll receive the least expensive one for free at checkout.

FFVII Remake

A modern retelling of the 1997 PlayStation classic. This game is the first of an unknown number of episodic installments retelling the story of Final Fantasy VII.

Save $100 with Woot’s deal on a refurbished iPhone 12 Mini

Normally, the iPhone 12 Mini costs $699 new, but if you aren’t too picky, Woot is selling a refurbished version for $100 less. Better yet, the retailer says these are “Grade A” units, which means they won’t have anything more than minimal cosmetic wear. These work on GSM and CDMA carriers.

The iPhone 12 Mini is the smallest phone in Apple’s lineup and the best small phone you can get.
