Today’s Deals: Paper Mario, iPad, and More


Let’s get right into it: you’re looking for deals, and we’ve got them.

Paper Mario and the Origami King

Paper Mario hasn’t actually been a proper RPG for 17 years now, but that doesn’t stop the series from being a blast. The most recent entry in the legendary papercraft franchise is Paper Mario and the Origami King, a colorful and fun adventure game with some of the most clever writing you’ll find on the Nintendo Switch.

The new entry, which just came out last year, sees Mario and friends taking on a new threat: Olly, the titular Origami King. His Folded Soldiers rampage across the Mushroom Kingdom, threatening to fold and crease its paper denizens into otherworldly new shapes. That Lovecraftian tinge of pseudo-horror underpins the game’s charming and creative story.

The newest Paper Mario title is on sale for $42 over at Amazon, a full $18 off the list price.

iPad Pro

If you’re looking for a great new tablet, you’re looking for an iPad. Maybe you’re not a big Apple fan, or you think iPads are too pricey. Here’s the thing: if you want the best tablet, the thing you’re looking for is an iPad. And, you’re in luck, the newest iPad Pro is on sale right now at Amazon.

The 11-inch iPad Pro with 128GB of internal storage is on sale for $749 on Amazon and Walmart’s websites. The 12.9-inch, meanwhile, is also on sale, coming in at $1,099 at Amazon. For your money, you get a tablet with a beefy processor, a huge screen, an easy-to-use interface, and a great selection of games through Apple Arcade.

Another great feature of the new tablet is the ultra-wide front-facing camera. For those who love to make video calls, this is a great way to make yourself easy to see for the person on the other end of the call. Act fast to get this deal before it’s gone!

Apple Pencil

If you want to take your tablet to the next level, a digital pen is a great way to do it. The Apple Pencil is a bit pricey, though, coming in at $130 for MSRP. That being said, if you want a bit of a discount on this digital pen for your iPad, you’re in luck. You can get one for $20 at Woot today. The Apple Pencil isn’t just any old stylus, either. It’s a high-tech companion to your iPad that opens up a whole host of abilities that it wouldn’t have otherwise. As you’ll hear a lot with Apple products, it just works.
