Today’s Deals: MagSafe Charger and a Metroid Dread Bundle


Today we’ve got deals from Apple chargers to fun bundles on new Switch games. Let’s take a look at today’s biggest savings!

Apple MagSafe Charger

While USB-C and Lightning chargers are great for what they do, making it impossible to plug in upside-down, they’re still a bit tough to use in the dark or when you’re using one hand to plug your phone in. One of the coolest new things on iPhones since the iPhone 12 launched is the ring of magnets just under the surface of the back casing.

This magnet ring enables the use of devices called MagSafe peripherals. The most common of these is the charger, which, while technically wireless, snaps onto the back of your phone seamlessly to provide a charge through the glass-back casing straight into the battery.

If you’re in the market for one of these awesome new chargers, you’re in luck. You can scoop up a MagSafe charger over on Amazon right now for just $30. That’s a great deal on an official Apple peripheral. After all, Apple is known for making high-quality equipment that is notoriously expensive to buy outright.

Metroid Dread Bundle

Samus returns from a long hiatus when Metroid Dread lands on Switch on October 8. While that’s still a month away, you can act now to get a great deal on the upcoming sidescrolling platformer. You can pre-order the game directly from whichever retailer you’d like to pick from, but only one is offering a Samus-themed coffee mug.

If you pre-order the game from Walmart, you can get the full game for $60, and they’ll throw in the stylish mug with your order. If you’re already planning on pre-ordering the game and paying full price, why not pick up the free mug? That way, you can show off your love of Metroid while you drink your morning cup of Joe!

Metroid Dread was the biggest surprise of Nintendo’s E3 presentation this year, as many fans expected to see the long-awaited Metroid Prime 4 make an appearance. Instead, the fifth entry in the sidescrolling Metroid series was announced. Dread will take place after the events of Metroid: Fusion, making it the latest game in the series’ timeline.

Nintendo announced that the game will conclude the storyline that kicked off way back in the late 1980s with the first Metroid. Fans are buzzing with excitement that the franchise will soon reach this milestone, as Metroid has been one of the slowest-releasing major franchises made by Nintendo.
