When I was in college, someone at a warehouse where one of my frat brothers worked dinged a sled of Pringle's Cheezums and the whole thing was written off. We got like 250 cans out of it.
After two months I'd eaten so many damn Cheezums that everything started taking on an orange hue. I told Chris, not to sound ungrateful, but try to drive a forklift into a rack of Cool Ranch Doritos next time.
Anyway, the same deal's kicking off this weekend's coupons. Some unsightly packaging hides some merch that's still in perfect condition, and the retail price is at least half off. Let's get to the coupons.
• Someone dinged some boxes over at Logitech, so it's having a sale to get rid of the damaged goods. Its ClearChat PC Wireless Headset with Noise-canceling Microphone is more than half off - $44.99, regularly $99.99, plus free shipping. The unit is in a dented box but it is brand new and fully warrantied. [Dealzon]
• Likewise, Logitech's Driving Force Wireless Racing Wheel for the PS3 is $49.99, half off the usual $99.99. Same deal - dented box, perfect goods, full warranty, etc. [Dealzon]
• Amazon's cut the price of the wireless 360-style PC gaming controller by $10. It's $29.99. Remember, this is a PC game controller. [Dealzon]
• Here are two trade-in bounties at GameStop that I found myself taking advantage of last week. The first - turn in two games off a list of 30 each for PS3 and Xbox 360 and you can get Brütal Legend, which releases on Tuesday, for $19.99. You may also get Need for Speed: Shift. This offer is good through Oct. 25. The second: If you've got some old games lying around, bring in three and get an extra $10 in store credit, or bring in four and get another $20 in credit. The catch is, all of them have to trade in for more than $2. I did this on Tuesday, and got rid of Gun for $2.50, so, odds are good you'll make that threshold unless you are turning in something really old or crappy. The offer's good for 360, PS3 and Wii games and also lasts until Oct. 25. [GameStop]
• Steam's weekend sale is all three Hitman games on PC for $5 each. [Steam]
• Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games releases on Tuesday; it's getting a $5 haircut, plus a $10 credit toward your next game purchase, through Amazon [Dealzon]
As always, smart gamers can find values any day of the week, so if you've run across a deal, share it with us in the comments.
