The Christmas coundown has begun! You've got only about a week to get your holiday shopping done. Thankfully, and unsurprisingly, lots of stores have trotted out holiday sales to help you out.
What's good? I'm here to tell you, and will be doing exactly that until the calendar strikes Dec. 25. So check back often for updates on these and other sales to find out which ones are really worth your time.
Here are the latest and greatest picks, followed by store-specific roundups.
Nintendo Switch with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: $299 (save $30)
Walmart's other Switch bundle (see below) nets you the console, a Labo kit and a wired controller. If you'd rather start your Switch adventure with a game, here's a popular one included at no extra charge.
Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch: $45 (save $26)
A game Jeff Bakalar called "a damn masterpiece" (see review), Super Mario Odyssey is $45 at Walmart but even less at MassGenie. Just make sure to click the Power Deal button. Deal ends today!
Sceptre 32-inch HD LED TV: $80 (save $100)
Looking for a midsize TV for a den or bedroom? Sceptre's 32-incher has a 4.5-star review average from nearly 3,000 buyers, proof that its 720p resolution is just fine for a screen of this size. You'll have to BYO "smarts," but scroll down and you can scoop up an Amazon Fire TV Stick for just $25. Incredible deal.
Amazon Fire TV Stick: $25 (save $15)
It was $5 less on Black Friday, but $25 for Amazon's Alexa-enabled streaming stick is still a pretty fantastic deal. As of today, however, it's showing "in stock on Dec. 23," so it won't be delivered in time for Christmas.
Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet: $50 (save $30)
After a long stretch selling for $60, the Fire HD 8 is now the same price as Amazon's entry-level tablet, the Fire 7. But the HD 8 offers a bigger, better screen and faster performance.
iPad 2018 with 9.7-inch screen is $250 at Target (Save $80)
Apple's non-Pro iPad does everything most people want it for: Web browsing, Netflix-streaming and playing games from the App Store. Target has discounted the 32GB and 128GB versions of the tablet by $80, making them $250 and $350, respectively.
Google Pixel 3, 3 XL get their Black Friday prices back
The Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are discounted by $100 and $150 respectively on Google's store, bringing both high-end phones back to their Black Friday weekend prices. They will remain at these prices until Dec. 22.
Best Buy has another hodge-podge of deals today, including discounts on Anki Cozmo and Vector robots and the return of a very solid Surface Pro 6 deal. But here's the doorbuster to beat today, in my humble opinion:
Epson WorkForce WF-3640 all-in-one printer: $80 (save $120)
This business-class MFP (multi-function printer) sells for at least $150 elsewhere. It features an auto-document feeder, three inputs trays (two in front, one in the rear), AirPrint support and automatic double-sided printing.
Game time! Walmart is still offering a $10 e-gift card with the purchase of various popular party games, including Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity and Unstable Unicorns.
Meanwhile, you can still grab a solid Nintendo Switch bundle and big discounts on Samsung UHD TVs and Xbox One bundles. The store is also now matching Target's $250 iPad deal.
Nintendo Switch, Labo and controller bundle: $340 (save $49)
It's getting tough to find any kind of Switch deal, so Walmart's is worth a look. In addition to the console itself, you get your choice of three Labo kits and an Ematic wired controller.
Samsung UHD TVs for up to $400 off
Walmart is still offering up to $400 off a variety of UHD televisions, ranging from $400 to $1,400 depending on the model. The highest-end TVs appear to be offered at an even larger $1,000 off, which can be helpful if you were looking for a curved TV or just a Samsung set with a 55-inch screen.
