Our latest Dealmaster includes a nice one-day sale on Samsung microSD cards, as the 256GB and 512GB variants of the company’s Evo Select card are down to $28 and $60 at Amazon, respectively. The former discount is the best we’ve seen since January, while the latter matches the lowest price we’ve ever tracked. As we’ve noted before, this certainly isn’t the fastest card on the market, but it’s reliable and performant enough for most casual needs, making it a good value when it’s on sale.

Elsewhere, our deals roundup has a couple of steep discounts on Anda Seat’s Kaiser 2 and T-Pro 2 gaming chairs. You can read our review from earlier this year for more details. While they’re better suited for taller folks (think 5 foot 8 inches or more), people who can fit into them should find they provide sturdy frames and firm-but-generally-comfortable padding, regardless of whether said persons call themselves “gamers.” Again, they’re particularly solid value at these prices.

Beyond that, we also have deals on Apple’s wireless MagSafe charger, recommended webcams, Razer’s handheld Kishi game controller for iOS, a couple of AMD Ryzen processors, and more. You can see the full rundown for yourself below.
