Where can I find game deals?
Retailers often don’t list an end date for video game deals, which means they could end at any time. Price trackers like Camelcamelcamel can be useful for setting up sale alerts, but they don’t always work on digital-only titles, and they don’t work with every store. Our advice? Check out the sale sections at major retailers like GameStop, Best buy, Target, Amazonand Walmart.
What is a good deal? A general 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 all the time, so be patient and research prices before clicking Add to Cart.
