All Labor Day weekend, Microsoft is offering up your choice of Xbox One bundle, plus a copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity, and an extra game of your choice. It’s not uncommon to see Xbox One bundles being sold with two extra games, but this is the first time we’ve seen such a large selection of bundles. [Xbox One Labor Day Sale]
Update: Apparently, this is only available for currently available systems, not preorders.
Here are the best of today’s deals. Get every great deal every day on Kinja Deals, follow us on Facebook and Twitter to never miss a deal, join us on Kinja Gear to read about great products, and on Kinja Co-Op to help us find the best.
Xbox One’s DVR functionality won’t be out until next year, but you can still use the console as an OTA TV receiver with a good antenna and tuner.
Microsoft’s official live TV bundle includes an amplified Mohu Leaf 50 antenna (a Lifehacker favorite) and a Hauppauge Digital TV TV Tuner for $100. Buying both separately on Amazon would set you back over $120, so this Labor Day deal from Microsoft is a great value for cord cutters. [Live TV Bundle for Xbox One, $99]
The Force Awakens hype train is gaining steam, and you can get set with a great deal on Star Wars toys, courtesy of Amazon. You’ll save $10 automatically if you order $50 worth of toys, or $25 off $100 if you get carried away. There are over nine pages full of eligible items, so you shouldn’t have any trouble filling your cart. [$10 off $50, or $25 off $100 on select Star Wars Toys]
Update: We’ve heard from a reader saying that Brookstone has made BB-8 ineligible for the Groupon voucher. Probably best to hold off until we get clarification.
You know that Sphero BB-8 toy that everyone was freaking out about yesterday? Here’s a chance to grab one for $25 off.
You’ll actually need to do a little bit of legwork here, but it shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes:
- Make sure Brookstone still has BB-8 in stock, and add it to your cart
- Purchase this $50 Brookstone voucher from Groupon for $25 (which is a great deal by itself!)
- Apply the Groupon code to your purchase from Brookstone, and use code SHIP99 for free shipping
Not that hard, right? BB-8 is almost certainly going to be the hottest toy of the year, so I feel fairly confident in saying that this is the best deal you’ll see on it for a long time.
Read this ringing endorsement of the Nexus 6 from Gizmodo, then pick one up unlocked for $350, which is by far the best deal we’ve ever seen. Yeah, it’s basically a year-old phone at this point, but it’s still a really strong performer at this price. [Nexus 6, $350]
Need to get caught up on Star Wars before The Force Awakens? Both trilogies are on sale on Blu-ray for $35 each, today on Amazon.

Admit it, you’ve wanted one of these since the first time you played an Assassin’s Creed game. Ubisoft’s official Unity Phantom Blade includes a functional (plastic) hidden blade, as well as retractable crossbow arms that can shoot an included soft dart. Just don’t get too excited and start trying to climb buildings. [Assassin’s Creed Unity Phantom Blade, $27 for Prime members only]
If Super Mario Maker has convinced you to buy a Wii U, this is the best price we’ve ever seen on the Deluxe model. [Refurb. Nintendo Wii U Deluxe Set with Nintendo Land, $190 with code VISA5]
