Deals of the Week… Going, Going, Almost Gone! (11/15/13 Edition)

By on November 15, 2013

If you’ve been visiting Ben’s Bargains recently, you’ll have noticed that retailers are no longer waiting for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and that the deals have been flying fast and furious! It’s a good idea to drop by our Black Friday hub to compare the current online deals with the advertised Black Friday sale prices. You just may find a price now that’s lower than it will be on the big day. Good luck!

Here are 10 of the best deals this past week (Nov. 9 to Nov. 15) that are still hanging around:

1. Black Friday is Here, Folks

Staples is leading the charge with a fantastic coupon for $50 off regularly priced tablets $149 or more. It can be used online or in-store. Standouts include the Samsung Galaxy 3 16GB 8.0″ Tablet for $230 shipped with code and the 2nd Generation Google Nexus 7 32GB Tablet for $269 shipped with code. The 16GB model was $179 shipped before it sold out today. That’s lower than Staples’ advertised Black Friday price!

Expiration: 11/17.

2. Black Friday is Here, Folks, Part Two

The Soul by Ludacris SL99 In-Ear Headphones are just $24 with free shipping (no minimum) at Amazon right now. You can usually find them for over $40. The chances of this going any lower for Black Friday are slim to none. Not the latest and greatest, but has a lot of solid reviews (and headphone buyers are not easily pleased).

Expiration: Limited time.

3. Accessorize in Style and for 50% Less

Living Social is offering a free code for 50% off purchases at Incase ( You’ll immediately receive the code and you can use it to buy anything from the site. Even better, shipping and returns are free. Incase products have gotten a lot of good press over the years.

Expiration: 11/18.

4. Cheap (Red-Hooded) Sweatshirt

Your hoodie can be your best friend, as Adam Sandler would attest to. A cheap hoodie is icing on the cake. Aeropostale has their A87 Ribbed Popover Men’s Hoodie (yes, in red, too) for $9 shipped with code when you check out with PayPal.

Expiration: 11/15.

5. Don’t Leave Home Without It

Motorola’s flagship phone, the Moto X Android 4.2 Smartphone, is currently $300 shipped from Republic Wireless, with no contract required. The plans are cheap: $5 per month for a Wi-Fi only plan (for example, if you use Google Talk), $10 per month for unlimited Wi-Fi data and unlimited talk and text, $25 per month for unlimited talk, text and 3G data or $40 per month for 4G. If you prefer a subsidized phone, Verizon Wireless has it for free with special code and new 2-year agreement.

Expiration: Limited time.

6. You’re Money, Baby

Last week, Columbia had a fantastic deal (now expired) on their high-end electric jackets. This week they have a similar deal on their men’s and women’s Flyin’ DryShell Jackets: 50% off plus another 40% off with special code. Sign up for a free Greater Rewards Membership and you’ll also receive free shipping (and save 6 bucks). The final price ends up being $75 shipped, and these are hard to find under $130.

Expiration: 12/31.

Deals of the Week Kelly-Clarkson-Wrapped-in-Red7. Free Holiday Music

8. Good as New

Like Apple Store, refurbished models from Canon Direct are as good as new. Right now, they’re offering $20 off refurbished products $100 or more, $50 off $250+ and $125 off $500+. A refurbished Canon EOS Rebel T5i, Body Only (the 2013 model) is just $435 shipped once you add it to your shopping cart. It’s selling for $649 brand-new at Amazon.

Expiration: 11/16.

9. Oldie but a Goodie

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can get a good deal on the last generation PlayStation 3 500GB Bundle at Dell. Here’s how it plays out:

1) The bundle at Dell includes GTA V and NBA 2K14 and two controllers and is selling for $300. You also get a $50 Dell gift card included.

2) Buy a $400 Dell gift card and also get a $75 Dell gift card for free.

3) Using that $400 Dell GC, buy the PS3 Bundle for $300.

4) You now have a $100 gift card balance, plus a bonus $50 gift card and $75 gift card. You have $225 to spend at Dell, and the bundle is basically $175. That’s a lot better than the 250GB bundles that will be selling for $200 on Black Friday.

Expiration: 11/17.

10. Santa’s Helper

The new 2013 LEGO Castle Dragon Mountain set (70403) is currently $33 at Amazon with free shipping on $35+ (or free for Prime members). This new set gets some great reviews from LEGO aficionados and would be a wonderful gift for the kiddos.

Expiration: Limited time.
