This handy device allows players to swap between physical Nintendo switch games by pushing a button, or through a remote. This is also currently 15 percent off bringing it to $34.
Dreo is offering up to 50 percent on a wide array of these products. A full list can be found on their official website, which for every $100 spent you have the chance of winning another exciting product. To make it easier, we’re going to highlight a couple stand out options.

Anyone who wants to get into streaming will also want to check out Maono’s various offerings. These include most of their products, along with select bundles. The one highlight would be the Maonocaster AME2 and PD400X, which is $20 less than buying both separately, and includes two windscreens, extension rod, plus a Karaoke microphone for $200. Other bundles include a boom mic arm, to literally everything to start voicing over content.
Elgato has their recently released Stream Deck+ on sale for $170 (MSRP: $200). This deal can be found at various retailers, though purchasing it from Elgato directly will give a free set of colored knobs ($20 value). Just be aware Elgato is not currently offering a deal on the white version.
Retailers like Amazon also have the 15 key Stream Deck MK.2 on sale for $120 (MSRP: $150). Unfortunately, this only applies to the white version, though perfect if you wanted more buttons/interactions than the Stream Deck+ offers.

Those looking to really up their game will want to check out Audeze Black Friday offerings. Headsets include LCD-5 at $3,000 (MSRP: $4,500), and CRBN, which is the best headset I’ve heard, at $2,500 (MSRP: $4,500). Audeze is also offering their conference speaker FILTER is also $125 (MSRP: $250). Finally, they have an “accessory case” for $5. From what I can tell this is their EL-8 headphone case. Given Audeze offers free shipping on the case it might be worth it if you’re in the market for a case. Their Aluminum Travel Case is also on sale for $59 (MSRP: $175), though all sales are final on that product.
