If you live in Canada, and like McDonald's, you can now buy large fries with Monopoly money.

It's true! And I'm not talking about Canadian dollars, either! Those jokes don't really make sense any more...

An interesting promotion.

There are a bunch of games from EA on sale. Apparently Zombie Jesus wants you to have a bunch of games for $0.99. I just picked up Madden & FIFA for my iPad. Dead Space is on sale (for iPhone and iPad) too.

Portal 2 is on sale at Amazon this week. $34.99 for PS3 and 360 and $29.99 for PC. If only PSN weren't down so I could actually activate my Steam copy. I wonder if Valve is doing something about that.

If it's not red and showing substantial musculature, you're wearing it wrong.

Amazon is now giving away both $50 Amazon credits and $20 Xbox Live credits (1600 points) with all Xbox purchases, even the $199 model. It's almost like getting an Xbox for $129, which is a pretty crazy deal.

AT&T currently has 16GB iPhone 4 refurbs for $99, or at least they did when I was checking my school's discount plans earlier. If you wanted one, better go check now!

That's odd...they've bumped them up $20 because they were going for $79 before. Those are the ones my sister and her husband got, and we couldn't believe how a $199 phone was only $79. Interesting. I wonder why they went up?

Most likely because they saw how quickly they sold out last time so they knew the demand was there. It's an easy extra $20.

Yeah I don't need an Xbox either, but maybe after this PSN fiasco I do...

So if I link this deal up here - will it still give 'Nova the affiliate credit and give me the goodies?

Okay, I caved and got a 4GB one. I'll don't care much for the headset and I actually like the idea of having one with the matte finish over the glossy finish. If I get needy for HDD space (which I probably will) I'll find a 250GB sized drive to flash, or just buy an MS branded one with the credit (they're $85 on Amazon, less than the $100 it would have cost to upgrade upfront).

Looks like I'm heading back to the Xbox after this PSN fiasco - I'll prolly donate the PS3 to my parents as a BluRay player for their new 3D Bravia.

What's a good reason to get an Xbox if you're not a gamer? Is there a reason?

I got the PS3 for it's bluray and folding@home uses. Really. I do have a few games, but never really play them.

Well, I do have that with my PS3 already. Guess I can't really use that as justification to get one. Oh well, I was gonna try. Maybe some day I'll become a gamer.

Attention gamers who currently own $60: K-Mart is throwing in a free sub-$20 game and a $20 gaming coupon when you buy LA Noire. That's pretty much a brand-new game for $20, if you get some value out of the free game and coupon.

Attention poor bastards like me: GameStop is doing its Buy 2 Get 1 promo on used games again.

Both deals make for a great way to pick up some of the newly-dropped Wii Classics or whatever the hell they're calling the $20 Wii games.

Your mileage may vary on this one. I just got back from Target with an Incase Book Jacket case for my first generation iPad. I only paid $12.48 for it, from their sometimes awesome clearance end cap. Only the blue ones were that price, though. The black ones were $34.98. Both were originally $49.99.

I love the case, and it's quite a bit nicer than my old Dollar Tree one. That case worked okay for transporting the iPad, but this one is a little more functional.

If you've not shopped Target clearance before, you should know that not every store has the same clearance pricing. Not even the same items get clearances at every store. Some stores are more active than others in clearing out merchandise.

App Store and iBooks cards are on sale for 20% off at Target this week.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure all Apple's "store" cards are basically the same, and you can use any card to buy whatever. In any case, stock up!

That's a good deal. App store credit for me is like cash these days. I could use a nice $50 credit in my account just to burn through over the next couple of months.

I am not sure if they work on the Mac App Store, though. Anyone know?

I picked up a couple $25 cards yesterday. I'll try them out and see.

I was pleasantly surprised when my Target RedCard gave me an additional 5% off. So I got $50 worth of iTunes credit for $38. That's 24% off. Not too shabby.

Credit (at least, currency credit) associated with your Apple ID will work in any store you use that ID for (both iOS and Mac App Stores, iBook store, etc.). Obviously, song credits (if you have any) will only work for songs.

I can confirm that these credits apply both to the iTunes store and to the MAS. They show up now as "Apple ID credit".

Thanks everyone!

So if you buy a $50 iTunes card, you can redeem it in iTunes, but then also use the remainder of that card's balance to buy iBooks or apps? Or is it like Nintendo, where once you redeem the card in one store, all of its credit is tied to that store and you can't split one card between stores?

I believe that once it's in the pot, it's in the pot. So if you put your $50 iTunes card onto your account you can then buy Katy Perry's new song from iTunes, download Hipstamatic onto your iPhone and then purchase a few filters in the Hipstamatic app as well. Each purchase goes through your iTunes account so as long as there's credit there it'll draw from that. I assume the same principal works for iBooks, Mac App Store purchases and, coming soon, iNewstand subscriptions as well.

Yea, it's listed as an account balance (tied to your Apple ID), not a _____-store balance. I've read of people loading up on Apple cards at 10-15% off retail and banking it waiting for the release of FCP-X. Instant OS X software discount.
