The Best Deals Under $30 for Prime Day in October

I have some good news and some bad news. Good news: Amazon’s October Prime Day sale event is still going, which means you can score some great deals. Bad news: it ends at midnight Pacific time, so you’re running out of time to pick up whatever you have your eye on. If you’re interested in deals that won’t cost an arm and a leg, we have you covered below, with the most popular deals under $30. Let’s dive in.

Ghost of Tsushima for $29.99

If you missed out on this one at launch, now is the perfect time to pick it up. This is an open-world Samurai game that has you wandering through truly breathtaking environments and engaging in exciting sword fights against invading forces. This director’s cut comes with the full game, the Iki Island expansion, and the online co-op mode.

Azul Board Game for $19.19

Some board games are about conquering the entire world. Others are about building tile mosaics. Azul is the latter, a game about creating surprisingly beautiful designs, in a semi-competitive way. It’s also easy enough for kids 8 and up to play, so you can play with the whole family. Check out our Azul board game review for more info.

Anker Portable Charger for $12.59

Phones are great, but if you use yours too much, it’ll run out of batteries. Sometimes that’s no problem, because you can just plug it in, easy peasy. Other times, however, you’re far from home and your car breaks down and it’s raining and — oh no, your phone’s dead and you can’t call anyone to come get you. You probably should’ve had this sleek little Anker portable charger on your person, so you can charge your phone and get home to safety before the escaped serial killer (did I mention that? There’s definitely an escaped serial killer on the loose in this scenario) gets you.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie for $12.99 (Lightning Deal)

The Mario Movie is a colorful, fast-moving flick that’s fun for the whole family. I brought the kids to see it in the theater, and when it came to home video they wanted more. So we got it and watched agian, and guess what? It’s still great. You can grab it on Blu-ray right now for less than the price of a burger at many restaurants. Do it.

D&D Essentials Kit for $11.99

Looking to get into Dungeons & Dragons? This kit, on sale for $11.99, has everything you need to get started. It comes with a short adventure to play, a 64-page rulebook, a DM Screen to keep the players from seeing what’s ahead, 6 blank character sheets, 11 dice, a poster map, cards for magic items, and more.

Samsung 512GB MicroSD Card for $27.99

MicroSD cards are incredible things. They’re super tiny, but they can hold a lot of games. If you’re in need of more storage on your Switch, Steam Deck, or other compatible device, pick up this 512GB marvel and start filling up that storage instead.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope for $19.99

Want an underrated Switch game that has Mario blasting enemies with a gun? Of course you do. Mario + Rabbids is a fantastic turn-based strategy series that has you planning your moves to destroy enemies across large and dynamic maps. Check out our 9/10 Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope review for all the reasons why this one is not to be missed.

Pendulum Board Game for $19.99

Another board game that’s available at a deep discount right now is Pendulum, a turnless game that has you and your opponents playing as resourceful lords vying for the throne. To do so, you hire and command workers, expand your territory, and generally try to outmaneuver your opponents in real time.

Fire Emblem Engage for $29.99

You almost never see first-party Nintendo Switch games drop below $40. It just almost never happens. But friends, it has today. The fantastic turn-based strategy game Fire Emblem Engage is on sale for $29.99. Mark it down in your diaries, because you’re not likely to see this game drop this low again anytime soon (except possibly on Black Friday, but who knows).

Splendor Board Game

Another super popular board game with our audience is Splendor, in which you play as a Renaissance jewelry dealer looking to out-deal the competition. To do so, you must acquire and maintain mines and trade routes, and hire the highest quality artisans to make the most sought-after jewelry.
