Five-deal Friday: Save big on storage, games, Wi-Fi, and more
If one deal is good, five must be better, right? I've got a free e-book, a dirt-cheap terabyte hard drive, $25 restaurant gift certificates for a buck, and more!
I really wasn't intending to write up five different deals today, but I just couldn't settle on one. Take a look:
1. Newegg has a Samsung 1-terabyte internal SATA hard drive for $41.99 (plus around $7 for shipping). That is just... just... words fail me. Granted, this is an open-box, bare-bones drive, meaning you don't get so much as a SATA cable along with it. But I've never seen a lower price on a terabyte. Wow.
2. Want to upgrade the Wi-Fi performance of an older laptop or desktop? Meritline has the Tenda W311U 802.11n USB adapter for $8.99 shipped.
3. Like World War II-era shooters? Stardock is offering Medal of Honor: Airborne (PC) for $4.99. Gamespot says the game starts off slow, but later gets cooking--and offers solid multiplayer action. I say: five bucks? How can you go wrong?
4. Like to read? E-book seller Wowio is offering Brian James Freeman's horror novel "The Painted Darkness" free of charge. It's provided as a PDF, meaning you should be able to read it on the platform of your choice. The hardcover sells for $13.49 at Amazon (where, incidentally, the book received about a dozen very positive reviews).
5. This isn't a tech deal, but today only, Restaurant.com is offering $25 gift certificates for $1 when you use coupon code WOW at checkout. Wow, indeed! (Actually, the 90-percent discount applies to any gift certificate, not just the $25 ones.)
