This week the Origin store launched a “Six Day Action Sale” with discounts up to 50% off PC and console games. PC downloads are 1/2 off while console game prices are reduced by about 1/3rd. Several PC download games are at their lowest prices ever, like Tomb Raider, Dead Space 3, and Assassin’s Creed 3. For not a fan of the Origin PC platform, it should be noted not all games activate on Origin. Anything from Square Enix, like Tomb Raider, actually activates on Steam, though you buy the game from Origin.
If you’ve looked at all for a performance Ultrabook, you’ll notice right away they sell for a pretty penny, usually around the $800+ price range. The Asus Zenbook deal from Groupon below is much more tolerable offer – only $630 for a Core i5, 13-inch IPS display Ultrabook in brand new condition. Next best price online for the same model is $976.

CAMERA, HEADPHONE, AND APRON DEALS
The compact, powerful DSLR alternative Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is only $400 today, including the usual 14-42mm zoom lens. And if you want to spend less than a tenth that amount, you can pick up a refurbished basic 16MP point and shoot from Samsung for $35. Although Monster is best known for questionably priced cables and Dr. Dre’s foray into the headphone world, they’ve got a set of over-ear headphones that sound surprisingly neutral and are most likely worth more than the $190 you’ll have to pay today. For a much cheaper option, you can get some DJ style phones for $6. And finally, with Mother’s Day approaching, Flirty Aprons has released a 40% off coupon good on aprons sitewide.
