Code CPLAY10 is going to grant you some pretty awesome prices. Let's go through them.

Brings this Super Mario 3D World Wii U Bundle down to $260 and no tax. This is likely to be the best Wii U deal prior to Smash Bros. Wii U's release. [Wii U]


We mentioned it on our Black Friday Preparation Guide that Amazon is ramping up their exclusive deals for Prime members, in addition to giving Prime members early access to lightning deals. Turns out Amazon is also rolling out exclusive deals for Amazon Visa cardholders, including Smash Bros. 3DS for $28 with code TYS25ARC. [Smash 3DS]

We recommend the Amazon Visa in our prep guide, and it's also Lifehacker's favorite rewards credit card.

The Wind Rises, the preorder price falls. [The Wind Rises]

There are some nice flash drive deals running right now, if you need a spare.

These days, you probably charge as many things over USB as you do over standard AC outlets, so it only makes sense to add some semi-permanent USB ports to your home.


Today on Amazon, you can get highly-rated duplex receptacles with a pair of USB ports for $19 each, an all-time low. These have proven very popular with readers in the past, even at higher prices, so be sure to secure a few before Amazon sells out. [Leviton 15-Amp USB Charger/Duplex Receptacle, $19]

This low-profile surge protector plugs directly into the wall to turn two outlets into 8, and features a swivel design that can help keep cords against the wall, and out of your way. [8-Outlet Swivel Surge Tap with LED Indicator Lights, $11]

If you know of anyone with a SodaStream on their holiday wish list, this is a great deal on a full starter kit. For what it's worth, I'm obsessed with mine. [SodaStream Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker Starter Kit, $59]

Representing a step-up from the popular Arc3 and Arc4 series, Panasonic Arc5 is a top of the line electric razor with a top-shelf price to match. Today though, Amazon's offering a $100 off coupon to bring the total damage down to $168. [Panasonic ES-LV61-A Arc5 Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Multi-Flex Pivoting Head, $168 after $100 off coupon]

If you don't own a kitchen scale, drop what you're doing and order this right now. [Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale, $17]

It's not even Black Friday yet, but we might have already found the most obvious deal of the holiday shopping season. If you're an Amazon Prime member, and you buy $45 in Amazon Gift Cards, you'll get a $10 credit added to your account. That's free money, folks.


Your easiest option here is to get a 3-pack of $15 cards (note that they MUST be the Holiday-branded cards pictured), but you can get higher denominations if you want to give them away as gifts. Just enter code HOLIDAYGCS at checkout to get the deal. Weirdly, you have to be a "new" gift card customer, meaning you haven't previously ordered any gift cards from Amazon, but you could skirt around this by just creating a new account and signing up for a Prime 30 day free trial, so there's really no excuse to miss out on this.

The only other real caveat is that you have to spend the $10 credit before the end of the year, but with Black Friday around the corner, I don't think you'll have any trouble with that. The gift cards, of course, never expire. [ Amazon]

There's a huge library of shaving product coverage across our network, but most of it revolves around choosing the right blade or method. Today we want to find the best shaving cream, so head for Kinja Co-Op and nominate your choice.


A lot of people have the wrong impression about Pinterest. It's actually an incredibly useful bookmarking tool that you'll get far more value out of than the other major social networks. We're using it to collect and organize the huge amount of product coverage from us, our Editorial Staffs, and you.
