The Cheapskate's Cyber Monday deal roundup
Tablets, tablets, and more tablets, plus plenty of other manic-Monday goodies.
Now this is my kind of deal day: lots of killer bargains, no circling for 20 minutes just to find a parking spot.
Rather than highlight a single deal on this Cyber Monday 2012, I've cherry-picked a bunch I think you'll like. Let's get to it:
What's a Kindle without a case? AmazonLocal is offering a free voucher good for 30 percent off any qualifying Kindle accessory. These include cases, screen protectors, reading lights, and the like.
In what promises to be the first of many such discounts, the Microsoft Store has the Acer Iconia W510-1674 10-inch Windows 8 tablet for $399 shipped, a savings of $100. That's a pretty good deal for early adopters with late-adopter budgets.
While supplies last, BugDig (via eBay) has the Google Nexus 7 (32GB) Android tablet for $229.99 shipped. (You'll see that price once you add it to your cart.) CNET calls it "the best small tablet," and I tend to agree.
Of course, for a full $100 less, you can get the Amazon Kindle Fire for just $129 shipped when you apply coupon code FIREDEAL at checkout. (That's today only and while supplies last, natch.) That's the best deal I've ever seen on a non-refurbished Kindle Fire.
Don't mind a refurb? How about a Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet (8GB) for $79 shipped? That's the Nook Tablet, mind you, not the older, slower Nook Color. Wow. As with previous B&N refurbs, this one comes with a full one-year warranty. And with a newly updated N2A Card, you can easily replace the stock OS with Android 4.0. (FYI, 1SaleADay has the Nook Tablet (16GB) for $99.99 shipped.)
Game time! Amazon has Batman Arkham City (PC) for download for $7.50 -- already a great deal. But it also includes a $5 promotional credit you can use in January toward any "Editor's Choice" download.
Movie time! Walmart has the Lord of the Rings Original Trilogy on Blu-ray for $12, plus $1.97 for shipping and whatever sales tax applies. Also: reading time! Amazon has "The Hobbit" e-book for $3, just in time for you to reread Tolkien's classic before seeing the movie.
Finally, some storage goodness: Office Depot has the Toshiba 1TB Automatic Backup Portable Hard Drive for $59.99 shipped, plus sales tax where applicable. (Want it in red? Get it for the same price for Walmart.) Plug it in, and presto, instant backup. Plus, it's a USB 3.0 drive with a two-year warranty. That's a big fat "like" in my book.
OK, those are my deals to beat this Cyber Monday. Have you found others? Shout 'em out in the comments!
