PlayStation VR | PS4 Camera | Batman: Arkham VR | $360 @ B&H
Elsewhere this weekend, we've seen Labor Day sales bring the PSVR headset under $400 at a few stores, but this is out favorite bundle by far. Not only is this the cheapest price for the headset, but you're getting the PS4 camera (required for the headset to work) and a copy of Batman: Arkham VR thrown in for free.
Shadow of War $44.99 @ GMG - was $59.99
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was one of our favourite games of 2014 and this long-awaited sequel is looking even better. Once again, it's all about the excellent Nemesis system where enemy encounters have lasting effects throughout the game. So, we're very ready and a 25% discount from GreenManGaming is a solid saving for pre-order fans.
Amazon Tap speaker $99.99 @ Amazon - was $129.99
Amazon Tap has been a big hit this year and we're not surprised as this smart bluetooth speaker is the business. It's not just about the awesome bluetooth connectivity and Spotify interactivity though.That's just the start as the Smart functions allow you to ask for updates on the news, dial an Uber cab, or even order a pizza.
Amazon Echo $99.99 @ Bed Bath & Beyond - was $179.99
Before you go ahead and buy the older Amazon Tap though, you should seriously consider this Labor Day sale offer from Bed Bath & Beyond. Amazon itself may not have the Echo in stock, but this stunning discount on the Alexa smart-speaker can't be ignored.
Amazon Echo Dot $44.99 @ Amazon - was $49.99
A modest discount for sure but $5 off during the quiet summer months is pretty good given the excellent value the Echo Dot is even at full price. It's a lot cheaper than larger Echo or Amazon Tap devices too.
Google Home $109 @ Walmart - was $129
Google Home has faced stiff competition from the Amazon Echo devices, but it's arguably a better fit for you if you enjoy the Google/Android ecosystem already. Plus you can play the free version of Spotify on Google Home - Premium only on the Amazon Echo. We've seen this excellent price once or twice before, but rarely as the Google-flavoured smart speaker is usually $129.

Wow, that's a huge Labor Day sale discount right there on this huge 65-inch curved screen TV and the cheapest price it's ever been. We're not used to seeing such cheap prices on curved screens of this size, even on Black Friday, so we'd act fast as the offer expires at the end of the day.
