Amazon Prime Day is over, and the vast majority of its Prime-specific deals are over. The only remaining deals from our Prime Day roundup are Team Sonic Racing and the board game Carcassonne; both great games, if maybe not the kind of big savings you were hoping for.
But, as more retailers have started offering competing deals, those retailers are also a little less rigid with their timelines. Amazon, eBay, and even Google’s shopping hub Google Express are still dropping some excellent deals in Prime Day’s wake.
As we mentioned yesterday, if you’re looking for a great TV deal, your best bet would be waiting for Black Friday. However there’s one especially good 4K TV on sale at eBay right now — the 65-inch LG C8. It usually costs over $2,000 but is on sale at eBay for $1,599.99.
Dell launched a “Black Friday in July” sale on Monday, with doorbuster deals on its own tech. Today there’s a very good deal on Dell’s G3 gaming laptop. The 15-inch model with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card and 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor starts at $549.99 ($250 off).
And finally, a weird bundle popped up on Google Express yesterday — a Nintendo Switch and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition are being sold together for $400 with code GOTURE. That’s a savings of about $150 if you’re somehow in the market for two video game consoles.
