Looking to boost your K/D Ratio with some fancy new noise cancelling headphones? Hear the click-clack of a fancy mechanical keyboard beneath your fingers? Up your DPI with a brand-new gaming mouse – but without reaching uncomfortably deep into your digital wallet? Look no further – Amazon Prime Day is here, and if you’re not a member of Amazon Prime, it’s more than worth it to sign up for the free trial, even if you cancel it just after this one day. There’s a lot of offers on here to save you big money on the best that gaming accessories have to offer.
But look out – these deals are in very limited quantity and are only available for 36 hours. Luckily, Amazon supplies a helpful little tracker below a product that is being sold out of availability, which lets you know which deals are about to make like Peter Parker and disappear before your eyes (Sorry). Use these to make sure you don’t come up late for the party on any of the best deals in this lineup – offers so good they’d give the Steam Summer Sale a run for its money.
MECHANIZED KEY-PRESSING RGB-COLORED GOODNESS
A keyboard is usually pretty inexpensive, but those of us looking to level up our game time aren’t in the market for just any keyboard. We’re in the market for one with power, durability, and maturity – the kind of maturity that puts adorable little rainbow colored lights on each and every key.
Jokes aside, getting a mechanical keyboard is a big part of PC gaming. It’s one of those things that most PC gamers don’t really think about until they’ve almost finished constructing their rig, but it’s definitely a piece that can add on a good $50-$60 when you’re least expecting it. That is, of course, unless you go with the RedDragon RGB Keyboard, which takes a lot of the bite out of what is normally a pretty intimidating purchase. This board is small, compact, and space-efficient, and added to that is the Amazon Prime Day exclusive offer that sets the board up for a purchase price of less than $30. As far as mechanical keyboards go, that’s an absolute steal, and the Free Prime 2-day shipping is a great addition to an already fantastic offer.
$300 OFF TOP-LINE VR HEADSET
VR gaming has been making headlines for some time, and for good reason – As it slowly picks up steam, more and more new tech is unveiled that makes us certain it’s the next big thing. But if you want to get in on this brand-new phenomenon, you’ll need to be one of the few with some seriously deep pockets – especially if you’re trying for the PC side of the offers. The HTC Vive Pro headset, offering high-resolution screens and enhanced motion tracking over the base models, is arguably the highest standard when it comes to VR gaming, but at a base asking price of over $1,100, it’s out of reach for most of the gaming populace.
Amazon Prime Day hasn’t exactly changed that, but it has put it a bit more in-reach for the masses by offering the full product at over $300 off. This drops the price of the pro down to $800 – still a hefty investment to be sure, but much less of one for those unwilling to break the bank on the next-next-generation of gaming tech.
ASUS GAMING LAPTOP, BUT YOU GOTTA GO FAST
So I’m going to give you all a short timeframe here – just to set the stage for how quick you need to be with these Amazon deals. I was one of those crazy people you’d prefer to believe don’t exist, one of the ones who was on the deals page the very MOMENT Amazon Prime Day went live – and I still wasn’t able to catch this ASUS i7 Gaming Laptop before the product went unavailable. But I’m not speaking about it just to frustrate you – Amazon Prime Day guarantees that product deals that sell out near-instantly will get expanded back-end lineups before the sale goes away. This will probably be in the morning hours of tomorrow, July 17th, then. Last I saw it, this laptop, which usually retails for over $800, was on sale for about $400. This is an entry-level gaming laptop for the same price as a blender. Probably best to keep a close eye on this one when it becomes available again.
