Morning Deals Round-Up

• If you are actually going to buy an MP3 player that isn’t an iPod, Best Buy has a promotion that gives you a free $50 gift card with the purchase—excluding iPods. The Sandisk Sansa 512MB player is just $100, for instance.

• Or! Ditch the gift card and get twice the capacity in the Creative Zen Nano 1GB MP3 player at Amazon. It’s $109, which isn’t bad on its own, but also has a $10 MIR.

• Or even! Today’s Woot, the Virgin Electronics 5GB MP3 player with FM Tuner and speakers for $125, shipped. These were pulled from the shelves nearly as soon as they arrived, but they really aren’t a bad deal. We say go for it.

CircuitCity has lots of little gadgets from NexxTech in deep discount, most of which would make passable stocking stuffers. Especially the Blue Bug Massager. [via DealNews]

• If there is one pointless purchase we have resisted so far this year, it would be the Back to Basics TEM500 Egg & Muffin 2-Slice Toaster and Egg Poacher aka The Egg McMuffin Machine. Amazon has it on sale for $40, shipped.
