Forget worn-out WASD keys. The true hallmark of being a gamer is a never-ending list of games you want to play.

Where Can I Find Game Deals?

Retailers often don’t list an end date for video game deals, which means they can end at any time. Price tracking tools like Camelcamelcamel can be helpful for setting up price drop alerts, but they don’t always work on digital-only titles, and they don’t work with every store. Our advice? Check sale sections at major retailers like GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, and Walmart. 

What’s a good deal? A good rule of thumb is to aim for $40 or less for a recently released AAA title, and $20 or less for older, still popular titles. Video game sales pop up frequently, so be patient and do your price research before clicking Add to Cart.
