Good morning, everyone. Today's deals are a doozy, so let's get down to business.
Star Wars: Battlefront II is slated to be one of the biggest video games of the holiday season, even though the game's developer, EA, has managed to thoroughly piss every single dork on Reddit off with a comment about unlocking some of the in-game content.
Nevertheless, if running around as a Jedi, flying X-wings and killing stormtroopers is as fun as it sounds, you can save a cool $12 (discount applies in cart) by pre-ordering before the game releases and ships on Friday if you have Amazon Prime. And if you don't have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for free for 30 days and get all of your holiday shopping done for cheap.
CHEAP PROTEIN POWDER ALERT! CHEAP PROTEIN POWDER ALERT! As everyone who buys protein powder or other supplements knows, they're fucking expensive. Thankfully, you can get a bunch of really good deals from leading supplement brands (ON, Muscle Pharm), like a 2-pound barrel of protein from ON for less than $20 (get the vanilla).
Since we've started Cool Stuff, I've started receiving a lot more packages at work, a lot more packages that are very annoying to break down without a cutting implement. This means that I've spent a lot of time recently thinking about pocket knives, like this little fellow from Tigard-based Gerber.
Today, serrated and fine-edged iterations of Gerber's stainless steel Paraframe mini-knife are available at a slight discount ($3 and $5, respectively) with Amazon Prime. With a 2.2″ blade, safety lock and pocket clip, it's the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone like me who now needs to open and break down a bunch of fucking boxes all day long.
