We’re officially into the second half of 2023, and we’ve got some great daily deals to kick off July. First up, there’s a solid video game sale going on over at Best Buy today, which includes first-party titles for both PlayStation and Nintendo platforms. Plus, as part of the Steam Summer Sale, you can save some cash on a Steam Deck handheld right now. And, we’re less than two weeks out from Amazon Prime Day, and the deals are already starting to kick off. These deals and more below.
Big Video Game Sale at Best Buy
If you want to save on a handful of PlayStation and Nintendo Switch games, today is a great day to do that. There are several fantastic games on sale at Best Buy today, including a number of discounts that expire after today. You can grab great PlayStation exclusives like The Last of Us Part II and Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. Spider-Man is a great choice because it includes both Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Spider-Man: Remastered so you can catch up on the whole story so far before Spider-Man 2 releases this October.
In Nintendo Switch land, you can save a few dollars on best sellers like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing New Horizons, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. These best-selling games also happen to be some of the best games ever made, so if you’re missing any of these in your collection, you can scoop them up today.
And don’t overlook Wild Hearts, which is a fantastic time if you’re a fan of the Monster Hunter series. Wild Hearts fuses building mechanics with the classic hunting loop, and it’s also hard as heck. I played through the main story earlier this year and really enjoyed it.
Up to 20% Off Steam Deck
The Steam Summer Sale just started and one of the biggest news from that event is up to 20% discount on all Steam Deck models. More specifically, the 64GB model is 10% off, the 256GB model is 15% off, and the 512GB is 20% off. The Steam Deck is portable gaming system that lets you play almost every game available in Steam’s library on the go. Short of getting a gaming laptop or paying $700 for an ASUS ROG Ally, there’s nothing else like it out there. Check out our IGN Steam Deck review more more details.

Flexispot Electric Standing Desk for Under $159.99
For a limited time, Amazon is offering a Flexispot 55″x28″ Electric Standing Desk with a single piece maple desktop surface for only $159.99. It’s originally $239.99, but there’s a $20 coupon you can clip on the product page and an additional 25% off coupon code “25L1D8JC” that you will have to apply manually during checkout. The Flexispot desktop surface measures 55×28″. Unlike some of the other cheap desks on Amazon that uses a split top surface for easier packaging, this is a single piece with no seams. The 1″ thick desktop is sturdy enough to support up to 187 pounds, so people with heavy full-tower PCs and 48″ displays (like myself) won’t have to worry. The legs are made of steel of support. The single electric motor lift mechanism offers height adjustment from 28″ to 47.6″, at a speed of 1″ per second. The controls are simple; it’s a 2-button affair for raising and lowering the lift. Flexispot covers this product with a 5 year warranty on the frame and motor and a 2 year warranty on just about everything else.
