We dug up plenty of good deals for Black Friday last week. Cyber Monday can be more hit-and-miss, but this year, we managed to unearth an almost equally satisfying quantity of bargains.
Among the highlights: Amazon's Kindle Fire, which is available today only for $129 if you enter the coupon code "FIREDEAL" on the checkout page. That's down from the regular price of $159, and it's pretty friggin' cheap for a 7" Android tablet from a major vendor. This puppy was selling for $199 just a few months ago.
That's not all, of course. We also dug up some fine discounts on PC components and peripherals:
Keep in mind those Rosewill keyboards (which we reviewed not long ago) are usually priced at $99.99 or higher. I should also note that the Corsair H60 was on sale for $40 after rebates on Friday—so if you missed out then, you're getting just as good a deal now.
There's also a fair number of games on sale at both Amazon and Steam right now. Here's our selection:
Those prices are all for downloadable copies, by the way. Also, the Amazon listings (Battlefield 3, BioShock, Borderlands 2, Mass Effect, Max Payne 3, and Syndicate) all come with a $5-off coupon for any "Editor's Choice" title purchased before January 2013. It might not be much, but considering the aforementioned titles are nicely discounted already, the coupon only sweetens the pot.
