Reebok, adidas, & Under Armour at WootReebok, adidas, & Under Armour at Woot
Store: Woot! An Amazon Company
Discount: Up to 82% off
Shipping: Free shipping w/ Prime
Expiration: February 28

Woot (An Amazon company, lest we forget) is generally known for its delightfully varied array of discounted goods however today they will be known as The Great Unifier, for bringing together some of sportswear's branding giants under one singular sale umbrella. Reebok, addias, and Under Armour are here, a trifecta of sporting brand stars. But wait! Before you scoff at the admittedly small selection of T-shirts, jackets, vests, pants, and water bottles here, know that the discounts are very high. Juicily high. Or to be more specific and therefore more informatively helpful, up to 82% off high. The big brands and the big discounts offset the small scale of the sale, so say the revered deal jockeys of DealNews.

Nike Members Save More SaleNike Members Save More Sale
Store: Nike
Discount: Up to 50% off + extra 25% off via code "MEMBER25" for members
Shipping: $5 s&h, or free shipping w/ $50
Expiration: February 23

As a way to get you to sign up to their membership program, naming this the "Nike Members Save More Sale" is a bit on the nose. I eagerly await the "Nike Members Are Cool and Attractive Sale" and "Nike Members Rule, Losers Drool Sale". Still, the members thing is free to join, and once signed up, you really do save more, thanks to the coupon code "MEMBER25", so it's hard to tell exactly why we got off on the wrong foot. Members even get that $5 shipping rate, or free shipping over $50. And it's nice to feel like you belong somewhere. I'd imagine.

Marvel Midnight Suns: Enhanced Edition for PS5Marvel Midnight Suns: Enhanced Edition for PS5
Store: Amazon
Price: $19.99
Shipping: Free shipping w/ Prime

Midnight Suns is a great game and I (Niall Gosker) won't hear differently. It's got a great easy to approach but deep turn based combat system and is a love letter to the Marvel universe that was made by a group of developers who clearly understand it and have a great deal of reverence for it. Amazon has the game for the great price of $20, which is the lowest we've ever seen it for on PlayStation. Great game, great deal, greatness all round. Great!

Samsung Galaxy S24 Android SmartphonesSamsung Galaxy S24 Android Smartphones
Store: Samsung
Discount: Up to $750 off w/ trade-in
Shipping: Free shipping

Tom's Guide has already given the S24 Ultra high marks, especially for setting "new records for a flagship phone in key areas such as battery life, screen brightness and processing performance". So keep that in mind as you take up to $750 its asking price with an eligible trade-in. And while Tom's Guide don't have their reviews for the other models completed yet, you can also take up to $750 off the S24+, or $550 off the base model, via the same mechanisms. And then? Then you buy Golf on Mars for $3, and spend the entire lifetime of your new phone working your through the infinite (?) extraterrestrial holes. I'm on Hole 80,330, and refuse to upgrade from my S10 until forced because of the lost progress. Anyway. You can also get 20% off Samsung Care+ with Theft and Loss with your purchase.
