The Best Deals This Weekend: January’s Crazy Discounts Continue




Best Deals Best BuyRemember earlier this week, when we mentioned that Banana Republic has been going crazy with deals this month? Well, the madness continues this weekend, with the retailer once again offering 30% off through the end of the day Saturday. The deal is online only (you’ll need the coupon code BRTAKE30) and it’s down from the 40% we saw just a few days ago, so it’s possible that Banana Republic is starting to ease off on the deals a bit. With that said, we wouldn’t be shocked to see 40%-off deals return as early as next week.

• In that same article, we also mentioned that consumer electronics deals were up from last January. Well, Best Buy is in the midst of “Winter Doorbuster Days” which it says “feels like Black Friday.” The two-day event lasts through Saturday, and online purchases ship free. Deals include a Droid Razr M for free with a two-year contract and a free $20 gift card when you buy the current generation iPod nano for $145. You can also get a 55-inch Insignia TV for $550, marked down from $800. Finally, Best Buy is taking $200 off all models of Apple’s MacBook Air.

• Every couple of months, the 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription gets marked down to below $40. This week it’s happening at NewEgg’s eBay store, where you can get the subscription card for $34.99 with free shipping. The card has a retail price of $60 and usually sells for $50. Even if you’re not a big online gamer, getting the Gold subscription allows you to access media services including Netflix and Hulu Plus through your Xbox 360. Quantities are limited and it usually sells out fast, so get on this as soon as you can.

• If you’re looking to decorate your house for a Super Bowl party, you might check at FatHead, which is currently offering 25% off all NFL products. The discount can be had via the coupon code VICTORY25, which is valid through the day after Super Bowl Sunday — 11:59 p.m. PST, Feb. 4.
