Today’s Top Tech Deals: Alienware Gaming Laptop 33% Off, $100 Off the Fire TV Recast, and More!

Ah, the end of September. The month really went by fast! I, of course, am excited for October – it’s when things finally start to cool down where I live in Florida, and Halloween is just around the corner. With both Amazon Prime Day and Target Deal Days announced (both October 13th and 14th), the big days of deals and holiday shopping are starting early, too. That’s probably a good thing, considering what 2020 has been!

But just because the holiday shopping season is ramping up to begin doesn’t mean there aren’t deals to take advantage of now! Today’s top tech deals include $100 off the Fire TV Recast, 33% off a super powerful Alienware laptop, and more!

Woot’s Electronics Sale

Who doesn’t love a fun smattering of electronics to look through in the comfort of your home? Woot’s electronics sale runs until Monday, but you’ll want to look at what’s on offer today before the best items sell out. You can get deep discounts on things like the Google Home Mini, a 4K Smart TV, and more. Also, if you have Amazon Prime (which you should really get for the upcoming Prime Day), all these awesome deals will ship for free.

    Woot! Electronics Fall-Tastic Deals
    Looking for a deep discount on select electronics, but haven't found it yet? Woot might be the one to have it for you! Running until October 5 or until stock runs out, you can save big on a variety of electronics. Act fast, though, because the stock is limited.

Alienware m15 R2 Gaming Laptop, 33% Off

At Dell, you can grab the super-powered Alienware m15 R2 laptop for 33% off. That brings the price down to $2,200. If you’re shocked by that price, let me tell you, it’s worth it. For starters, this laptop does not have a graphic card integrated into the processor (which is undoubtedly not the greatest for gaming)–instead, you have the GeForce RTX 2080. The m15 R2 also has 16GB of RAM, and a 9th generation Intel processor. This isn’t just a gaming laptop–it’s a top of the line gaming laptop that will last you years. The m15 R2 is not just a worthy purchase, it’s a worthy investment.

    This high-end gaming laptop is 33% off! Featuring a dedicated graphics card (rare for laptops), 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive, you won't regret this purchase.

Anker PowerExtend Strip for $25

Look, we all love tech and electronics here, but simply put, you need a place to plug all these things in. If you’ve been in the market for a new surge protector, it can be frustratingly difficult to find something that fits all your plugs properly, actually has surge protection, and won’t randomly melt or set something on fire. The Anker PowerExtend Strip is all of that, has 12 ports (half of which facing sideways so you can fit the big adapters), and is only $25. Grab one, even if you think you don’t need it–trust me, you do.

    PowerExtend Strip 12 Outlets with Flat Plug
    Make sure you can plug it all in with Anker's 12-port surge protector. Currently $25, half of the ports face outward to plug in those pesky oblong adapters without covering half the ports. It's a necessity in an electronic-heavy household!

Prime Day Early Deal: Fire TV Recast, $100 Off

Have you heard the news? Prime Day is coming, and it’s coming fast. It’s also two days, October 13 and 14. But in classic Amazon fashion, there are already early deals you can take advantage of, such as the Fire TV Recast for $130, $100 of the MSRP. This little device will allow you to record up to 75 hours of live TV to watch later on a Fire TV or mobile device–and unlike other services, there’s no monthly fee. I didn’t even know that was a thing with DVRs until today! Of course, being an early Prime Day deal, you need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of it, but you can sign up right here.

    Fire TV Recast
    Prime Day is coming fast, but you can take advantage of the savings already! Get the Fire TV Recast for $100 off, and have a DVR service without monthly fees to record your live sports and news. Never miss a game again!

SanDisk 512GB Extreme microSDXC for $110

MicroSD cards. You need them. SanDisk has got some on sale. You can grab the 512GB Extreme microSD for $110, 45% off the MSRP. This one is perfect for that shiny new Switch you bought earlier this week, with the 160MB/s read speeds ensuring your games don’t stutter and load quickly. The microSD is also waterproof, which… well, is nice, but I don’t recommend putting any electronics in water. Grab one today!

    SanDisk 512GB Extreme microSDXC
    If you need a microSD for your Switch or tablet, then SanDisk's Extreme series is one of the better choices to get. Offering resistance to the elements and a 160MB/s read speed, you won't be disappointed by this little memory card.
