A Disney Plus discount, Razer’s Labor Day sale, and free Assassin’s Creed DLC lead this week’s best deals

Summer is almost over which means we’re inching towards a deluge of fall releases. Just this week we’ve got Astral Chain, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey and Control, the latter of which is on sale at Amazon right now, just a day after launch.

Also via Amazon, Razer is running a Labor Day sale offering discounts on its gaming hardware. The Razer Blade Stealth 13 laptop is $500 off at $1,099.99 through Sept. 7, and a bunch of accessories are discounted until Labor Day, Sept. 2. (The best deal there is on the DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse, down to $43.34 from $69.99.)

Target, meanwhile, is offering 20 percent off a bunch of digital games. The best deal from Target’s sale, though, is on a 12-month family membership to Nintendo Switch Online. Split between eight family members (or friends,) the deal brings a yearly Switch online subscription to around $3.50 per person.

Ubisoft announced that it would be offering the first episode of its Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate of Atlantis DLC for free this week, plus taking half off the Season Pass. The base game is currently on sale for $19.99 at Amazon, making this the perfect time to dive into one of the best games of 2018.

Finally, Disney’s D23 fan club site briefly crashed on Tuesday due to demand over its limited time Disney Plus deal — a three-year membership for $46.99 per year (33 percent off). In order to get the discount you have to first sign up for a free D23 membership and then wait up to 36 hours for the offer to appear on your account. The offer goes away on Sept. 2, so the clock is ticking on this deal.
