Deals: Preorder Animal Crossing, Get $10 in Best Buy Rewards (Out Friday)

March 18, 2020 Off By tracy

It’s good to stay in on Friday, because two games will be released that are worthy of your time. Animal Crossing has already been reviewed here at IGN and Nintendo definitely hasn’t dropped the ball on this one. Doom Eternal’s single player component has also been reviewed, and that game is no less spectacular. It’s still not too late to preorder them now and save some cash while you’re at it.

We’ve published our review of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and not suprisingly, this game is “Amazing”. Best Buy has the best deal right now for preordering it… you get $10 back in Best Buy rewards. You’ll need a MyBestBuy membership to get this free credit, but it’s free to sign up. If you liked Stardew Valley, this one should be right up your alley.

Out This Friday: Preorder Doom Eternal and Save $10

Guess what? The other game that’s out this Friday also scored an “Amazing” 9/10 at IGN. Doom Eternal has been a hugely anticipated release and you can save $10 when you preorder it. If you’ve watched any of the gameplay trailers you already know this game is going to pretty amazing. Preorder it and you’ll also receive a digital copy of Doom 64.

Xbox One X (Factory Refurbished) for $229.99

This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for an Xbox One X gaming console from a reputable vendor. Note that this is a Microsoft refurbished item, which means that it still comes with a 90-day warranty. Microsoft refurbished items generally look brand new and come in its original packaging. Since you’re getting it from Walmart (and not a marketplace vendor), it’s easy enough to return to your local store if you have any problems with the unit.

Massive 12TB External Hard Drive for $189.99

This is a crazy price for more storage than most of us will ever need… yet. The next gen games are going to be huge, especially if they’re going to be stuffed onto 4K discs, so you better get ready now. It’s compatible with the PC, PS4, or Xbox One but unlike one of those small portable drives, you’ll need to plug this into a power outlet as well as a USB port. It’s worth it for all the storage (there’s no such thing as a 12TB portable drive).

WD Elements 5TB Portable Hard Drive for $98.99

This portable hard drive is compatible as external storage for your PC, PS4, or Xbox One. Portable drives are physically much smaller than their desktop hard drive siblings. However, they are just as fast and require no additional power other than the USB port. The only tradeoff is the higher cost per GB, but that point is moot with today’s deal.

Out 4/3: Preorder Resident Evil 3 and Save $10

Resident Evil 3 has dropped $10 to $49.94. For those of you who have already preordered the game from Amazon, your price is automatically adjusted to the lower one.
