The Moneysaver: Super Metroid, Mechanical Keyboard, Wii U, Roku 3

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one that cost less, And that has made all the difference.

Needless to say, today's deal selection is dominated by the 1500 games on sale at Amazon. See our coverage right here.

Aside from all those, dive down to the Tech section to grab that sweet mechanical keyboard for a paltry sum, or grab Super Metroid, one of my favorite games of all time, on the Wii U Virtual Console for 30 cents.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50's have been our most popular item on the Moneysaver, and yes, they're still on sale. However, if you simply can't justify $100 for headphones, check out the ATH-M40's. At under half the price of their big brother, they'll still sound great while making less of a dent in your wallet. (But seriously, just get the M50's).

Good To Know

We like to think the Moneysaver is pretty awesome, but there are easy things you can do to make it even better. For example, you need to be signed up for Newegg's Free newsletter to use all those codes, and Best Buy gives points for everything you buy if you're a Rewards Zone member, which is also Free. Shoprunner is also a great service to have, as it grants free 2-day shipping from many retailers we highlight, and there are frequent opportunities to get a free membership.

Our favorite one however is Amazon Prime, that not only gives you ridiculously fast free shipping, but grants access to their Instant Video catalog, which is really the only viable Netflix competition at this point. If you remember our coverage of Amazon's great game trade-in promo from a while back, Prime shipping made subscribers nimble enough to buy a game, play it, and sell it back within a week, making money in the process. If there's anything better than saving on games, it's getting paid to play them. We have a feeling that won't be Amazon's last promo like that.

Give Prime a whirl right here. If you've never subscribed before you're probably eligible for a free trial. [Amazon]
